Savanna Harris Todd, American Girl Kidnapped By Mom, Found In Australia After 19-Year Search

“19 years ago, bipolar disease was not as well understood as it is now. Some people with the disease simply cannot function without medication. And since no family violence was mentioned, this mother did, indeed, kidnap her daughter. And with all of the "evidence" she left behind, at least the family probably knew she was okay. But that's a horrible thing to do to your family.”

“Immigration is different in Europe, I think. What we have here is a plethera of Mexicans crossing the border with many family members. Granted, one of those people may find some idiot to hire them and pay them under the table, but the United States will be forced to take their of their families. I understand people wanting to leave Africa and some of the other countries where civilization is hard to come by, but even with the Mexican cartels in Mexico, it's still not a bad place to live. And there are easy, legal ways to enter a country. And the Pope is probably talking about LEGAL immigrants.”

“No, The Pope is not alking about or visiting legal immigrants.

“Europe has the same immigration issues we do. The only difference is that their illegal imigrants are coming from Africa and Eastern Europe instead of Mexico and Central America.”

ME: Yes, l do have trust issues...After living in America for quite some time and lied to by most of the organizations here, yes, one would develope a trust issue...and no, l prefer not to see the supposely chopped up body either, but l would like to see some form of evidence like a cop car or ambulance, a suspect they said that is in custody, something that would make the story believable.”

“I agree that there are some "healthy" foods that are pretty decent. I've learned to like grilled chicken instead of fried. And everybody's body is different. I eat a lot of things I shouldn't, but I have never weighed more than 110 (5'3"). Everybody has to do what they want. If someone eats the wrong foods all the time, that is their right. You can tell them it's not good, but it's their choice.”

“This is about people who don't want to know that facts. Facts tend to lean to the left. They would rather not know the facts so they can continue doing what they are doing with a clear conscience.

They don't want to know what Global Warming is, so they can pretend it means warmer winters, when it means more extreme weather, like bigger, wider tornadoes and hurricanes, or hotter summers, more draughts, less Summer rain, more wild fires.

“First of all, the Center for Science in the Public Interest is not a government agency, so all of you Obama haters can quit blaming him, although you still will because it's in your nature. Second, I've decided that living to be an old age and not enjoying yourself along the way is not the way to go. I would rather die at 70 and have eaten what I enjoyed than to live to 80 and eaten only healthly, non-tasty food my whole life. My father died at age 80 last year from lung cancer. He had smoked until he was 45, so the damage was done. I can't ever remember him eating a healthly meal. He did not have high blood pressure or high cholesterol. Like he said, right before they gave him enough pain killers to knock him completely out for the last two weeks of his life, he had a "fun" life. I want to go out like that. I don't want to regret one thing I did.”

“It is entirely possible to enjoy life and not abuse your body. I don't do that but somebody told me it was possible.”

Nicholas Giordano on Jul 4, 2013 at 01:00:50

“I understand your point very well, but what many people who make your argument tend to not consider is that healthy food can be enjoyed. Bad foods can also be enjoyed in moderation. And it's not so much about living longer for me (because hey, who knows, I can get struck by lightning tomorrow, and then all my efforts with health will have been deemed unecessary), but it's about improving the quality of my life so that I can actually enjoy it now. I can't eat at fast food restaurant, drink soda, consume chips, candy, etc., not because I fear it'll make me die more quicklu (which is can if consumed regularly), but because it generally just makes me feel terrible. That could just be my own personal experience, but I tend to my energy unrivaled by my 'unhealthy' friends. Frequency of sickness is highly related to diet and the care of oneself. I know many who've had colds only every two years or so. But I also know others who are sick constantly, and they tend to have much poorer habits. It's just an incredible way to live.

But again, I'm not attacking you or anything, and I completely agree with your point. But again, I stress that health doesn't have to be a drag, and I hope you can agree. [:”

“The 4th Amendment pertains to your home and was later revised to include your car. Nowhere in the amendment does it state internet or phone records. So please don't use the 4th Amendment as an argument. I still believe that in the world we live in today, in order to feel secure against terrorists, you have to give up a little freedom. They (the government) have actually stopped some potential terrorist attacks through "surveillance methods". But for those of you who are absolutely against anything that may infringe upon your freedom and rights, it doesn't matter. So, let's go ahead and do away with the NSA and every other organization that may "spy" on you, and we can just sit and wait for the next attack.”

“If it had been a white person who was executed, would he/she have mentioned two black people?”

Zeppelette on Jul 4, 2013 at 17:00:19

“Seems kinda pointless to try and guess what any person of any color might refer to in their final words, so that's just a silly argument. What I do see is that when I read mention of Obama, my thoughts didn't think "oh -- black man"... rather, maybe he was mentioned 'cause he's like, you know... the President of the United States or something. Fixation leads the mind to instantly recognize race when it's not even specifically mentioned. Race isn't the issue here -- narrow mindedness and a need to cry foul without sufficient cause is what this debate seems to be about. I happen to be white, by the way.. and I don't mind a bit that 2 whole people who happen to be black are mentioned in an article or comments.”

“Geez, my computer doesn't like me sometimes. Anyway, the PRISM program and the NSA "spying" is mainly to find non-U.S. citizen terrorists. The people who hijack planes and such. Because of our rights to privacy, it's harder to catch the home-grown terrorists. It seems like there were "warning signs" for most of the mass murderers in the last few years. Those guys were pretty much working alone. They weren't calling fellow terrorists across the country and in other countries. And we really haven't had anything like 9/11 or any attacks from non-U.S. citizens since 9/11. So I believe that something is working. People should be very happy about that.”
