Postal Worker Tyson Jerome Barnette Shot To Death While Delivering Mail: Police

Postal Worker Tyson Jerome Barnette Shot To Death While Delivering Mail: Police

Commented Nov 25, 2013 at 00:46:35 in Crime

“You say that the mailman was shot by a teenager...was the teenager caught and prosecuted? Also, you may not be aware that letter carriers are encouraged by their supervisors to walk on people's lawns if it's the shortest way to the next person's mailbox. Twice a year, a supervisor shadows them and actually counts the steps they take. If you would rather they didn't walk on your lawns, ask them nicely, or notify your local post office. Of course, if there are a lot of substitutes they will not all get the message.”

“A little sensitive, aren't you? Most smart people find a way to support themselves without crime. What's so ignorant about that?”

“If there were any smart people out there, they would have corrected this lunacy long ago. The smartest people seem to be those criminals who control you.... have you think all is well, while buring you a little deeper under the rug. Or have you noticed?”

“I thought you had to be 18 to get cosmetic surgery, at least back then? Maybe not, if your father's a doctor.”

“Pretty sure people can get nose jobs at 16.”

“In most places, you just need your parent's permission... and their money. Cosmetic surgery is not covered by insurance unless the result of a traumatic accident.”

JoannaCaroll on Oct 29, 2013 at 06:36:39

“When I was in high school, way back then (really, way, way back), it was very common for both girls and boys to have nose jobs at 16.”

“And liberals now have canceled the space program and want to shut down NASA. Big difference between 60s liberals and today's liberals.”

Sedjet2012 on Oct 19, 2013 at 23:34:36

“Sorry, that's another thing inherited from the previous administration. In 2004, Pres. Bush directed NASA to retire the shuttle program in 2010, coinciding with the completion of the ISS. The other part of his plan was that we'd get back to the moon, and establish a base for future exploration of Mars.

If he hadn't instead decided to invade Iraq, we might be well on the way to that goal.”

“I haven't heard anyone bragging about the healthcare system in the UK. I have heard a lot of complaining about long waits to see doctors, get treatments and surgeries, etc. Is that what you want for us?”

“A lot of complaining from who? People here making up stories about their British friends who hate the healthcare. Here's a clue. just because it's on the internet doesn't mean it's true.”

“They have walk in centers. Seen within two hours. Free. If you want to see your personal physician, yes he/she will have waiting lists.
You miss the point. In the USA the poor suffer. Why?”

“We can learn from their mistakes surely. That said, have you ever heard anyone in the U.K. demand our healthcare system? If you have, I bet they were wealthy.”

“Common: I have a dear friend in the UK and one in Canada....they both come here for health care. My friend in the UK would have died waiting if she had stayed there. My friend in Canada....her daughter would have died waiting for surgery. These are facts.”

“Seeing this poor baby elephant mourn the absence of his mother, there can be no doubt that he is crying from sadness. I see they are milking the mother so that he may get his mother's milk. I wonder if another female elephant might be willing to care for him? I hate when I see animals of any kind in distress. People, too, but I have a special soft spot for animals, because they have no one to speak for them. :-(”

“I guess that women who pay $80 and up for a bra and then get upset because they got "creased or wrinkled" in the suitcase, may find this useful and worth the money. Most other women will just continue to pack carefully.”

OneMercilessMing on Jul 4, 2013 at 08:40:10

“The hysterically funny part of this is that, if you pack correctly, things DON'T get wrinkled. Perhaps she should buy a bra of the correct size for her, instead of padded bras a couple sizes bigger. It's when women buy a padded bra too big in order to convince men that they are mammarily-gifted, that they wrinkle and pucker when you wear them. THAT was a lesson learned with training bras during the pre-pubescent days.”

“You can buy bras that are lined for modesty without being padded. Also, underwires serve no purpose other than to make you uncomfortable or give you a "push-up" look, in which case you probably don't care about the modesty factor.”

“Actually, it is NORTH America and SOUTH America that are continents. Maybe you need to get educated. And I think our image is that we have given away much more foreign aid...even to countries that hate us and are trying to destroy us...than we ever have bombed or invaded. What other country does that?”

Potoska on Jun 21, 2013 at 12:10:06

“There are six continents, count them. Unless somebody added one or two in order to make our country the only America. In any event the name is the United States of America, implying that the United States is IN America. Our arrogance in pretending to be something we are not never ceases to amaze me. And those gifts you talk about are ALWAYS with unlterior motives, and if you read "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, byt John Perkins, you might be able to take that blindfold off and see how our generosity works. As a people we are generous, as are the Spaniards and the Argentines, etc., but as a government we are ruthless and corrupt when dealing with foreign countries. I don't have to be educated, I had the fortune of studying and growing up in two continents, which gave me something called perspective, something you lack completely in your blind pseudo-patriotism.”
