This is how loser mayors of loser cities turns themselves into nationals laughingstocks.

Well" just remember. There aren't any Athiests in a fox hole! Anyone who has been in combat canRead More tell you that. These Athiest's fail to understand that God is real. They are taught this nonsense in the ultra liberal left wing nut job Universities. We actually pay these people to teach this stuff. The next time you need an Exorcist done, who are you going to call?? Oh and remember, a liberalism is a mental disorder. Check out Michael Savage's book. You may learn something.
Testy McTesterson April 20, 2014 at 04:40 am
Atheists do serve in combat (I know a few). Or is your argument that God is simply what we call ourRead More fear of death? Not very impressive, is it? And isn't Michael Savage the gay-basher who late in life admitted he was just ashamed he had the hots for his fellow male sailors back in the Navy? Conservatism is all hypocrisy, no brains, no heart.

It's nice to see we have and extra 100 million lying around to use for a library. We can't fix theRead More budget or the pension because we don't have money. We are being told again that we have to raise taxes even after the temporary tax became permenant. We have 100,s of brand new Police cars being stored because we dont have the money to put the electrical equipment in them with more cars on the way. This to me is like buying a new car because you are homeless and have nowhere to live. At first I thought this was a Rauner advertisement, it will be .

Perhaps it was a failed circumcision/ bungee jump?

I love the people who have nothing to add to the conversation so they throw either Obama or gunRead More control in. Either subject are worth debating at another time. But this conversation has nothing to do with either.

“You're going to shut your mouth or I'm going to have some duct tape put on it," Judge John McBain told Camia Gamet during her sentencing Wednesday. (Screenshot: WJBK Video)
RON Ostrodamus April 19, 2014 at 02:11 am
The death penalty certainly cuts down on the record number of incarcerations in America. Enough ofRead More this liberal crap on humane punishment. The word "humane' never enters the minds of these cold blooded killers. What is going to happen if another bombing takes place outside of Texas? What is going to happen with the next airplane hijacking, or Boston?
DDB April 19, 2014 at 06:29 am
Don, the comments were made at sentencing, not at trialso it hss no bearing on her conviction.

WCSC screen grab shows charges against worker.
Igor April 19, 2014 at 08:39 am
HF the charges were dropped. There is a problem because and I quote from the Patch"Lewis saysRead More he never noticed "No Free Re-Fill" signs and admits he had refilled his drink without paying on other occasions" and "On-site construction worker Chris Lewis told WCSC News he didn't know refills at the VA Medical Center in downtown Charleston weren't free."Where did you read that he knew he had to pay for it? No where in the article does he said he knew it.

It sure helps that I'm a little old lady because I just bring my cup from home from the last time IRead More was at a store. The last time I paid for a drink at costco was probably before the terrorists attacked us on 9-11. What's the big deal here, it's only soda? If this guy wants free drinks, it's none of your business, and non of the business of that nosey cop neither. You people don't get it, it's flat out entrapment by having the soda available. What's next, you expect me not to use my dead sister's handicap placard too?
