How is this going to reduce the number of crashes? Call it what it is a money grab thanks to theRead More phony republicans who voted for the biggest tax increase in Virginia history, you know Tag Greason and the good old boys!
After another baby dies after being left in a hot car, a mother recounts a mistake that might have cost her daughter's life.

Get an abortion, kill an innocent person-to-be, fine. Leave a helpless child to die, so sorry, I'm aRead More woman, not my fault. It's amazing how many females get away for crimes that would land a typical man in jail. War on Women, NOT! Do overs, yes, and yes again. When will these childish, stupid femmes grow up and really care about their creations? In suburbia, not anytime soon...

Rebecca, you said something about people are distracted and make mistakes ....yeah he wasRead More distracted ....the ugly looking moron was sexting (spelling) other women while his kid was dying...dying at the hands of his selfish father and cowardly mother....if the women he was communicating with could only see him! Yeah you get ripped for looking stupid and fat if you do something like this because people want to identify him with something ugly. We as a society have to have stern consequences for people like this....an eye for an eye...put them in a hot car and air it on Saturday night!

Boy are the Middle eastern/ Asian owned 7-11s going to hate this week. To me over the past decade itRead More seems like only the European, white or black owned 7-11s greet you with a smile when there are freebies (customer appreciation days). Middle easterner's/ and Asian's hate the freebies... pay attention and watch them this week when you stop in for your freebies.

Funny how I, in spite of my obviously extreme whiteness, have never experienced this problem. MaybeRead More there's something you're doing subconsciously when you walk in? Anyone walking in with a look of apprehension and nervousness, "watching them," is of course going to meet with a different welcome than someone who walks in with a friendly smile.

I personally am happy he's looking into this. One of these days, you are going to see that yourRead More "emotional state" is up for sale. If we don't get a handle on the NSA, Facebook, companies that collect our data and sell it, we are going to one day be denied insurance based on our emotional state and may have our children taken from us. You may think that's a good thing, until you discover that software can get it "wrong" and that it's just one more injustice that can happen. We also need to call out companies that make people "sign" something and later claim they gave it to you. The terms of condition are cloudier than a day in North Carolina during hurricane season. I have had more than one thing appear on my credit card that I didn't believe I "agreed" to buy.

Sally Linderman, I don't have a side. I'm an independent thinker and voter and your claims don'tRead More meet the facts. Anyway, any negative comments directed at me will be replied after 835. Thanx. PS. This massive unemployment that you refer to is due to yours truly, bush and his unnecessary wars.

Sorry for jumping the gun, hadn't been down to Fordson until this afternoon. We watched trucksRead More massing at the Eastern end all day Tuesday only to see them leave at the advent of rain.

Ken Lewis July 10, 2014 at 12:50 am
The thing I find interesting is women are dead set against people that smoke but the major majorityRead More of them drink regularly. I suppose they justify it because booze won't give them lung cancer. So who cares about liver cancer, hardening of the arteries, heart disease, kidney failure, abdominal and bowel cancer and a permanent lose of thousands of brain cells with each drink. I have yet to see one report of a driver under the influence of nicotine killing anyone while driving. So heres lookin at ya drink up and put that cigarette out before ya kill somebody with second hand smoke and just use a car.

misplaced patriotism and summarily killing masses on the orders of an egomaniac commander who wouldRead More not carry out the ridiculous mission without the questioning of the reasonableness of the mission, can ,and has led to the robotic knee jerk reaction to mindlessly commit global genocide by non thinking trained mercenaries who feel they can KILL their way into problem solving. then come home and turn on family and friends and community due to the vaccines , and brain damage and residue of the depleted uranium weapons they may use to dump an a sovereign country through fake FEAR AND LIES FROM COMMAND. IT could happen . then they may be too morally damaged to remember job #1 to protect the borders as originally assigned . then just may be that there may not be a job , home , or respect from others except their own fellow mercenaries . then tun on community free speech and true nationalism and safety and mutual community respect . It could happen . It could even RUIN the economic engine of the country and give world power to global bankers who could exploit realtars , home buyers , owners and construction industry and we would not be in a position to afford 44 million invaders. MAYBE?

misplaced patriotism destroyed the free speech and other rights as is displayed by the censoring ofRead More polite comments on this format, not patting mercenaries on the back . ie borders unprotected , blacks displaced by illegals in work force , economy trashed , etc
