This guy looks like he got sandblasted by a glazier. I agree with Lenny Kravitz.

Hey Dr. Wintemute, I hate to ruin your crusade but Chicago has one of the strictest set of gun lawsRead More in the nation and it is the gun violence murder capital of the United States! They had another blood bath there last weekend. There are over 300 million guns (not including police and military) in our country. What are you going to do, Doctor? Ban them all. By doing so the law abiding citizen would turn their guns in and the criminals would keep theirs, thereby setting the good citizens up for slaughter. You need to think through your crusade before you spend a million buck on a futile mission. We are a nation of guns. We always have been, Doctor. You won't change that. The barn door is open and all the horses already ran away!

I wish all you stupid Liberals would stop trying to take guns away from normal people. We'reRead More AMERICANS, it's our right, and I'm not giving up my rights for idiots that are afraid of guns. You should move to places where they have strict gun control, the paradises known as Mexico and Cuba. Love it or leave it, morons.
Jon Daniel, angry young man, and Jim Ardis, mayor of Peoria. (The mayor's photo is on the right, if you couldn't tell.)

Wow...you guys are nuts. And I am conservative......a "kid" did something he should notRead More have. A parody doesn't harm other people like he was doing. I do not think anyone would want this "kid" to do it to them and their family. Teach the young man right from wrong w/ the proper punishment.....and chill out people....geeezzzz.....

Bob,I don't where you come from maybe russia, Iran I know the leader over there did the same thingRead More to his people. We are not the mayor or police chief, don't take the job if you can't take what comes with it. I am sure the Mayor said to the incumbent, I can do this job better then you, trust me vote for me, not everybody! the kid did not trust him saw who he really was. the kid is a hero, he brought the true colors of the mayor out, and the kid was wright. Now he got to go. and the police chief with him.

Bob... If someone said I was smoking pot with a prostitute I would have to sue them for defamation.Read More That is the proper punishment. And that is what we are trying to explain to you. He didn't yell fire in a crowded theater... that would have the potential to harm other people. They mayor, judges, and police were overzealous at least, or acted criminally at worst. I can't imagine how you think it's acceptable for the police to raid someone's house over a satirical twitter account... this is not Nazi Germany.

Lets see how obscure I can make this.:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: I spend a lot of timeRead More traveling the Greater Milwaukee area, going in and out of communities. Every one seems to have at least one small shopping strip that at one time was a bustling center of local commerce. In its heyday, it housed small, locally and family owned businesses that thrived due to local loyalty and, perhaps, a small local restaurant that functioned as a meeting place for the locals. Maybe a drug store and a small laundromat - a hairdresser, or kid's clothing store - locally owned shoe store - an insurance agent, maybe. Gradually, due to changes in management and ownership of the small strip and all that can bring (less concern about upkeep, keeping tenants happy, etc) some or all of the familiar local venues began to shut down or move away from the small strip. In the place of the restaurants and other stores that locals tend to gather at are chain check cashing places, seasonal tax prep services, fly-by-night cell phone operations and too many empty storefronts. All the kind of stuff one might find in such locations that were once a destination and now a place of last resort, just prior to it being abandoned altogether, declared blighted and demolished. A sort of stage 3 terminal community cancer. This is Patch.

BTW, the OMB, under this administration, is primarily a source of partisan spin. Anyone who wouldRead More think they're providing useful information by reposting the conclusions of this organization is either patently clueless or being purposely disingenuous.

Because it's not really "free"? Because the more people who sign up for theRead More "free" versions, the less money they have coming in to support the program? Because the less money they have coming in that way, the more they'll have to get another way, i.e., taxation? Which means they'll cut back on the subsidies and not only will the "free" Obamacare no longer be "free", but all the other subsidized Obamacares will cost more as well. That's why no one who's involved in trying to make this mess work like they said it was going to is talking about it.

Yep, it's Free.... <sigh> <slack-jawed>

Here is a novel concept. Except for the 1st disgraceful budget passed by the party in power , not 1Read More other has been passed and sent to the President by both houses. The President submitted budgets, late as he is for everything, that got voted down by every single person that voted. The House has passed multiple budgets that arent even brought up for a vote in the Senate by Reid. The 1st and only budget passed by this administration increased spending for every wish list the Democrats have, why would they want to ever write, vote on or pass another one if they can just do another CR based on the "emergency" spending base line achieved when power got passed to Obama? They will do anything to keep the money flowing , anything. They are addicts and dont care about the consequences of their actions. They havent been held accountable yet, why should the be scared with almost every media outlet being the enabler? The fifth estate has become the fifth column. Wake up ! The Constitution is toilet paper to these people and this country was founded by people who died for it.

Starbucks is full of rich white Progressives, I prefer to hang out with rich white Tea PartyRead More supporters.
