People get angry at this but it's OK for 100 illegals to gather at storefronts on Horseblock Road.

FREE SPEECH, our 1st AMENDMENT RIGHT is a Constitutional right earned by our Fore Fathers and ForeRead More Mothers and relinquished to All Americans. To bad Benicia Patch doesn't feel this way. I'M APPALLED AT HOW THEY CENSORED and BANNED THE BLACK PANTHER OF POETRY FROM SPEAKING ON THIS RAG!!! "If the specter of whistle-bearing block captains roaming the streets dressed in (reflective?) white sheets is a cure worse than the illness, residents have little recourse. Courts have consistently recognized the KKK’s right to free speech".

I think this is an obvious false flag. We have an entire ideologically-driven group trying to takeRead More over our government and that is trying to spur ANY reason and ANY evidence, real or not, that there is a "racial divide" in our country. This is total BS.

Saint Trayvon? Really?

When asked exactly what she has accomplished during her stint as a carpetbagger Senator & ourRead More least "carbon neutral" Secretary of State, Madame Clinton responded "what difference, at this point, does it make?" That was after she was fired from the Watergate investigation for lying, and after she attacked every woman who was sexually assaulted by her philandering husband, and after she whispered into Sean Smith's & Ty Wood's parents' ears "don't worry, I'll personally make sure we arrest the man responsible for that despicable video." I'm sure I'll be called a "war on women" hating misogynist by the Libiots too enraged to notice I'm a woman & who are so intellectually dishonest they refuse to admit the real misogynist is Bill CLinton. But hey, as long as the boot licking Main Stream Media still drools over Killary, what difference does it make?

Hey Amy RLB, whatever that means, why are you talking about all .. what did you call them.....Read More libiots..... when there is only one person in this entire discussion that called anybody a woman hater?

The one person that call you republicant's woman haters is here and can defend their remarks. Just a thought.

You cannot offer education to any person who has not had the foundation of paternal guidanceRead More beginning at birth. The maturation of the human entity revolves around initial care as an infant which means communication both oral and by tactile sensation. NURSING an infant is one of the MOST importatnt things that may be offered as a beginning point. Any amount of the process is good, but continuing for the better part of a year is best. TALKING to the infant is also paramount in awakening the receptiveness of the brain as the eyes develop and begin to truly see. Show and demonstrate any and all things. And continue through the pre-teen years. When ANY child is prepared in these ways he or she will be READY to begin secondary schooling and on into the college level and become a resposible, productive AMERICAN. Do as I did. Finish high school. Go to college & get a degree (I paid for myself). Be RESPONSIBLE for yourself. AND Be a GOOD PARENT.. PEPARE your child. THAT is YOUR JOB!!! And THANKS to my parents!!!

FOR THOSE WHO LIKE AMAZON PRIME OVER NETFLIX: Here's an interesting article from today (23 Apr 2014)Read More about how Amazon Prime just got HBO to stream at least some of its older content, plus "HBO GO," to Amazon's new Fire TV box, thereby making NetFlix upset because NetFlix (nor any other streaming service, including HULU) has never been able to get any HBO content; and so Amazon has scored a real coup!

I agree with B. Dub 100%! How was this kid able to scale a fence and just walk right over to theRead More plane? TSA: for all the harassing you do in the terminal...you ain't all that!! As far as the kid being a runaway..maybe he does face some serious abuse issues at home. He's damn lucky to be alive. But, I raised three boys, and a 16 year old boy can runaway for any collage of reasons. My kids never ran away but, I'm wondering if the fact that the plane was going to HAWAII has anything to do with it. It sounds a little compulsive to me. CPA need good follow up on this.

Agranon - I'm a moron because I am tired of everybody and his mother trying to put themselves inRead More every story? Then so be it - I'm a moron. To be honest, I am also really tired of all the people that were compelled to run the Boston Marathon because "I had to finish for all those who couldn't." Get over yourself. It was a tragedy. Those responsible should be ripped apart by dogs. I sincerely hope the families of those affected can move on somehow. But how does Mary Jane Smith running the marathon help ANYBODY but herself? She's not doing it for "those who can't". She's doing it to maybe get on TV and she's probably feeling a little sanctimonious because she ran 26.2 miles and you didn't. It's like, "what did YOU do to help these people?" Same as you - nothing.
