“I am totally in support of this young woman and her paying it forward. For the patrons she served, how did they know she was gay? Including, why would they write that they did not agree with her "lifestyle". Wake up... being gay is NOT by choice, nor is it a "LIFESTYLE". It is a biological and proven fact that there is a glitch in one of the genes, a extra bump, if you will. Biological fact, not a wish to be gay. PLEASE, READ UP ABOUT HOW, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE AND WHY- BEFORE YOU OPEN YOUR MOUTHS. It is not a LIFESTYLE OR CHOICE. DEAL WITH IT! She is a person with a heart and soul, who is working and paying her taxes like everyone else. Not walking the streets and doing drugs..”

“"For the patrons she served, how did they know she was gay?"
In the initial report of the incident (last week?) she related the couple had made some snide remarks about her hair style when she first introduced herself.”

“I think they made that assumption because of her short hair. Now Jennifer Lawrence has short hair, too, and Anne Hathaway has sported the style also. Women with short hair are not automatically gay. The patrons just showed themselves to be ignorant and judgmental.”

“What's the big deal? I wore that style in the late 60's in high school. I took my high school picture with that style. Back then, it was called: The Vogue.
So, this isn't a new style ladies, its an old one coming back.”

“She's 44 years old. It's time to have "grown up" hair. After a certain age, it doesn't matter how many nips, tucks and Botox treatments you've had. Long hair just looks silly.”
“Very sorry to the family of our hero from WW11. My heart goes out to Mr Thornton, your service gave us freedoms. RIP. Now, for those thorny little "adult" wanna be's. Your past and present life may have been nasty, you may feel like you've been discriminated against, you had no jobs, nor much of a normal home life, your education was limited would be my guess. HOWEVER, those reasons should NOT be the reason to beat up on a defensless old man who was minding his own business. Your life of hell will now begin. May you find comfort in knowing that you won't have much of a life anymore. May you find comfort in your inmate family. You may want to rethink how you will survive now.”
“I am 63, paraplegic/Polio, wheelchair. I cannot work due to my health. I get survivors benifits with SS. (birth fathers) I receive foodstamps. I was getting $104 pr month and it helped me with the senior meal program where I live. I was notified today, that I will be getting $84 per month starting Nov. 1. I lost $20 in food purchases. Guess I could cut out buying fruit.Or maybe skip a few vegies per week. Or 2 days of meatless meals. I could make that work. Oh, and no milk. I cannot purchase frozen meals, or canned goods because I have a salt restriction, so, things must be fresh or frozen without salt. Happy Thanksgiving, and Merry Christmas.”
“Military and all other law enforcement are highly trained to use guns, assault rifles and high velocity/rapid fire weapons. The average citizen on the street wants to OWN one of these.
Never having touched a gun, but yet, wanting one of these assault weapons, because? We have the right. Our 2nd amendment, "the right to bear arms." When this law was written, there was no such assault weapons on the "list" of allowed guns. These assault weapons should have NEVER been allowed out of the proper hands of the Military and law enforcement for ANY REASON. I want a ban on those dangerous guns, because???
The average citizen, some with little or no education and others because of some ego trip has the right to "bear arms". I think the 2nd amendment got stretched way out of the intended means. It would be like putting an assault weapon in the hands of a child and telling that child he has a right to "bear arms" because he is protected by the 2nd amendment. Oooh boy! What a mess the NRA is making of this amendment.”
“It is one thing to be the proud parent of a beautiful child, (JonBenet) All children are beautiful in their own way. It is quite another thing to EXPLOIT the child to the point of abuse. This little girl never had a chance at a normal childhood. SHAME ON HER PARENTS. I feel sorry for her brother too.”
JimEllisForPresident on Jan 27, 2013 at 18:53:01
“Agreed! The tragedy of this case was the exploitation of a child. I also would think it likely her parents had her insured. Sad likelihood is if she had been not as physically attractive she wouldn't have been exploited in pageants, and would be probably still alive. Poor kid didn't have a chance live or die. Had she lived she probably would have grown up surrounded by publicity and eventually by drugs and all the other hazards of Hollyweird.”
“jasond1011, hey there, if you go back and read the article, any of the highlighted words in the article will take you to another page with all 8 pictures to look at. Read before you make comments like this one.”
“omni.... leaving a 2 yr old in a car late at night to go buy a tv? The children of today need strong and protective parenting. Children are not throw aways. YOU SHOULD NEVER LEAVE A CHILD ALONE IN A CAR. Get it???”

“sarcasm-sarcasm-sarcasm. I was pointing out that his behavior was outrageous by using sarcasm to justify it.Sorry you missed tht-I though my example was so wacky as to be obvious.”
“You know, I just re-read the first paragraph and it dawned on me. He claims he took the child into the store. Well then, video of said act should be on store cameras. Including the fact that the police officer who broke the guys car window to get to the child is lying! Including any witnesses that may have been in the parking lot at that time. The guy really thought he could get away with that? Oh and not to mention, he said the child was lost? Ok, what person would lose a child, and not report it. He was found at home with his new tv. No child! REALLY!!!”

“1. Remember this was at Kmart... cameras, really, working ones?
2. Cops responding, well maybe, this Kmart is in a "better" part of town.
3. Ain't my kid, I just live with the women
4. besides how do you put a 52 inch TV in back seat anyways, damn car sat in the way
Besides maybe tonight on local news WWLP, we will get to her baby momma's side”
“NUTS, NUTS, NUTS!! I am all done shopping, cards addressed ready to mail, and I have no problem with ignoring any sales that come up. Think I will go dig out the tree and ornaments... time to get busy and decorate!”
“My heart hurts for this little one. All children need is love and know that they are safe with their parents. My God, how sad. This person who is her father and his new wife need to be punished. They need to know that this child was a human being with feelings and a sweet little heart. Makes me want to hug my two little grandsons, including my teenage grandson. Keep them close and let them know they are loved and safe.”
“How sad, I was burned badly with surgery and 6 weeks in hospital, I know what she went through. How horrible for her, the pain alone is hard to deal with. God rest her soul. Hope her husband gets what he deserves.”
“If business owners will quit using the money they profit with for fancy cars, homes and trips around the world, and invest it back into the company, there wouldn't be any shortages. Shame on business owners who take things out on their employees. After all, it is the employees that work to make the owners fat and rich. DISGUSTING.”
thmsnsh on Nov 10, 2012 at 00:33:05
“So, you think that they shouldn't buy the "fancy" cars they want, or their big homes, or take vacations! OK, what happens to the companies that make those "fancy" cars, homes, and planes (that they use to go on vacations)? What about the loss of revenue of those companies and their employees?
I guess you don't really understand how the economy works.”
“What a lousy man. Just because of the elections, this man will ruin the lives of his employees. Then having the nerve to tell them they have to vote for Romney? Oh my God. This does NOT sound right. Isn't there something illegal about this? What a disgusting thing to do.”

“Your problem is you believed the empty promises Obama shelled out 4 yrs ago. He's a community organizer! He hasn't pulled off his promises because he's not executive material, never was, & he's not going to do any better in the next 4 yrs. Businesses are hurting, & he doesn't have any other solution than to raise taxes on the rich. He sold you on class warefare & catered to your sense of envy & greed.”
Billsback332 on Nov 9, 2012 at 23:46:26
“What are you talking about? Not one business owner big or small lied about cutting jobs if Obamacare was going through. Obama is keeping it in place, he will now tax this business at a higher rate cutting profits. We were informed millions more jobs will be lost -- this is just the start.”

“Where is the respect here? Freedom of speech. Yes. In a responsible and educated comment. No, because you are not quite the adult you think you are. Being responsible means, you have the freedoms to your own opinions, you do NOT have the freedom to express them in a public forum. Especially when it is full of hatred and using a derogatory name to call the President of our country. Then the remark of her not caring if the President were to be killed. OH MY GOD, you need to grow up girl. Educate yourself and learn some manners. By the way, also learn how to be respectful. Whether you like him or not. HE IS OUR PRESIDENT.”
“My, read what you wrote. Think about it. Realize what you have said. Then speak your mind. Mom could have remarried... Tiffany was prolly from a first marraige. Brother from second? I have a step dad, I have my birth fathers name, and I married/divorced, yet another name. Myangei... doesn't make me or my mom trashy.”
