If we cut off this mans ear (eye for an eye), I am positive people would think before they didRead More violent things to another person. Same thing with a thief, cut off his hand for stealing! It is time our legal system had some bite to it!

If this was a domestic incident and she stabbed because he was hurting her then good for him. UntilRead More they protect victims of domestic abuse this is what shoukd occur and she has every right to laugh at what she did. Now if she committed a random killing then i side with the judge.

Give her a few more hot dogs and a few big gulps, maybe she'll explode herself and save the expenseRead More of keeping her in prison. You know what it's going to cost Michigan to feed her? I don't favor the the death penalty in certain circumstances, but apparently she does. And the judge-I think he showed restraint considering her complete lack of respect, obviously for not only everyone else but herself as well. Isn't contempt of court another felony or misdemeanor?

The death penalty accomplishes three things: It reduces the recidivism rate by 100%. It providesRead More SOME means of closure for the victim's family and friends. It reduces the expense to taxpayers to feed and house the criminals for a very long time. Whether it's a disincentive to commit murder is not fully understood, there is conflicting data. Depends on whether the study was conducted by a liberal or conservative group. One of the countries with the lowest murder (and crime) rate in the world is Singapore. Their justice system pulls no punches, they even execute drug dealers.

I think it's terrible that the man could not pay for his extra soda right then. To fine him overRead More 500 dollars is unbievsble!

Leave the guy alone, what the Hell, give them all a free refill, what`s it cost to refill a 89 centRead More drink? I know for a fact about 5 cents, now leave him alone, and that's with his old cup. GOOD JOB CHIEF, WOULD I HIRE YOU NO !!
Karen Schell April 18, 2014 at 09:42 am
This is asinine! This world has gone crazy. He would gladly pay for the drink and who reads all ofRead More the little posted signs? If we stoped to read every sign, we would never be able to continue our journey. I can see my husband innocently doing the same thing. We need perspective and common sense.
Paul Broun, one of the most staunchly conservative candidates in Georgia's Senate election, is confident he can pull through despite struggles in polling and money.

@jonathan Maquire: Too bad you didn't this one through. I think you are misusing the wordRead More "principled" when you should be using "stubborn" or even "prejudiced". This congressman denies science big time and the logical result of that will lead to the death of the human race and most of the animal species on earth. Principle has nothing to do with this. This man shouldn't represent Georgia in any office of government.

Jonathan Maguire: A man of principle does not pimp his Messiah for political gain; nor does heRead More betray The Promise of Philadelphia for an ancient scroll.

Jonathan Maguire I think you know exactly what jMichael and Kathy are saying. --- You are just usingRead More the right-wing ploy of feigning to not understand so that you can appear as though you are trying to being reasonable. I believe you know full well what Rep. Broun's position on the issues are. --- There is no need to " figure out what he stands for" he has made that abundantly clear. --- Determining whether or not "he is a man of principle" depends on whether or not one agrees with HIS fundamental truth or proposition that serves as the foundation for HIS system of belief or behavior. And since you are apparently coming to his defense it would seem that YOU do.

Horses should not be nose to exhaust pipe on city streets. That is cruelty and the horse had hadRead More enough.
kathleen macmurray April 17, 2014 at 08:46 am
A horse and carriage ride in a park, fine. But not on busy, crowded city streets. It's cruel to theRead More horse and dangerous to everyone else. I'm with the NYC mayor on this one.
Sheila April 17, 2014 at 08:16 pm
Poor horse. I hope someone equine rescue unit will relieve him from his present circumstances andRead More either give him a good home or find him one.

The price of pork can also go up because the price of beef is up. It's not just weather andRead More disease, it's also cost of fuel.

With prices rising in all industries, I call it the disease of liberal Democrats! And it is theRead More disease that will wipe out civilization!
mark April 18, 2014 at 08:23 am
When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!
Hank Aaron. (Patch file photo.)
Forward.... April 16, 2014 at 02:57 pm
Mr. Aaron has lived through this vituperate before and it was only because he did the best job heRead More could in beating Babe Ruth's record. So for that he was called horrible names. He stated his opinion, which is fact based but America is not able to face honesty or have that conversation about race. They rather continue to act out with name calling. For centuries, African Americans have been deemed as lazy, stupid, inferior yet when one reaches the level of accomplishments as Mr. Aaron or Mr. Obama, they are still only just a n-word! Not given the respect or appreciation other within their own circles. So if what he says makes you uncomfortable, imagine how uncomfortable it is to live it!
Ira April 16, 2014 at 03:40 pm
Aaron brought this on himself. He himself is full of racism. In an interview with USA Today priorRead More to his day at the Braves game, he compared the GOP to the KKK. He couldn't be further from the truth and just confirmed he has joined the cry racism crowd. I lost all respect for this person.

"We can talk about baseball. Talk about politics. Sure, this country has a black president, butRead More when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he's treated. We have moved in the right direction, and there have been improvements, but we still have a long ways to go" ........... I am bewildered that Mr Aaron chose this path and used the worn out political excuses and apathy for President Obama. As a black woman I am shaking my head in disbelief. Silence is golden.
