“not their parents but we do support them from our earnings. so test them”

“History has shown us that most of us are not impervious to financial ruin and the fact there is something of a safety net in our country is a lot better than having none. I am aware that some families never escape public assistance but many families have fallen into poverty since the great recession. Spending money on lab tests is wasteful and spiteful. Did you ever asked yourself which companies are lining up to get the contract to perform these tests? Are these companies associated and or donate to certain politicians that are pushing for this legislation? Think beyond the propaganda and fingers pointed to the weakest in our society, ask the billionaires to bring their hidden and tax free fortunes home and contribute to the country that made them rich.”

“I was in the military for 6 years and followed that with 25 years in civil service working in a VA hospital. during all those years I was subject to random testing. its part of the job. congress should be included and I imagine they are. this rule should apply to anyone receiving any government subsidies or salary. including welfare recipients and unemployment .”

“this is idiocy. what will Obama tell the air crews families when he has to explain that he would not allow a radio message and it caused their deaths. battling china will not be like these little skirmishes in the middle east. china's military is many times the size of ours and they have equal technology. plus they have money we do not have, Bo wants a "supreme legacy" to be remembered by and a possibility to declare martial law and never have to leave his new temporary residence”

“You are nuts and know nothing about president Obama and America.
China has a lot of people, but their navy is small and their technology is no where near as sophisticated as ours! They bought a second hand carrier that is so full of defects it's almost useless. They built a new carrier and it has yet to be declared seaworthy because it's so full of second rate steel and faulty electronics. Their entire navy is no match for the Central Pacific Fleet, and their technology is no where near as sophisticated as ours! Their army? It';s big, but can they swim?
Can we afford it? If we have to, we'll spend whatever it takes.
China? All we have to do is stop buying their goods and they will go broke! Debts? What if we say "no"?
No, China will back down, they have too much to lose.”

“the media does what ever it can to stir up "controversy" and don't care if it is all lies. this should have been checked out before being printed. the days of real journalism are long gone today it is all grocery checkout tabloid writing of lies. the other thing is the constant pimping of the leftist union ways. bash walmart whenever you can but there are 9 other large corps in the group of lowest paying in the nation. TJmax, sears, target, kaymart, the group that owns taco bell and KFC are all in this group. the idea is to slam walmart, the largest until they cave to the unions, then the smaller onews will fall into line. has anybody thought of whaat will happen with union wages in all these stores. prices will go up and all the employees will not gain any buying power. also those not employed and on fixed income woill lose buying power. we will simply do away with any middle class left.”

“he stated someone was "trying to break into his house". where do you get ringing the door bell. were you there. its not a good thing to go to a strangers house at 3am and start rattling the door to get inside. and if this was because of an accident, why was there a 2+ hour gap between the accident and trying to get into some strangers house. I would like to see some toxicology results on the victim. and if there were not all these ethnic street gangs running loose in the urban areas there would be no need for "stand your ground laws"”

Luci Loo on Nov 9, 2013 at 13:15:51

“You weren't there either.  The 2+ hour gap is irrelevant as far as the homeowner is concerned.  I don't think they have SYG laws in Dearborn, MI.  I think you're referring to the castle doctrine laws.  I can understand the fear of the homeowner, and protecting his family. He did call 911.  It would be interesting to know if he called before, or after he took his shot.  I think we can agree that this is a sad story for the shooter, and the victim's family.  However, we can agree to disagree.”

“I don't know if if the story said that the area is known for its street gangs but Santa Rosa does not come to mind as a street gang area. And the using of children to kill for a street gang in pretty rare even in high gang activity areas. It is even pretty rare for gangs to have planned killings even then it is usually young adults not children. Not every killing in a high gang activity area is gang affiliated sanctioned killing, although I will admit that it is reported that way.”
