“We really don't know that the ex-boyfriend was involved or not. From this story, she has lied abut not being able to contact her family or authorities. She knew enough Spanish to get a job and get knocked up. There are three sides to every story. Someday the truth will come out.”

“The ad is OK but he shouldn't be in uniform. I think it's an ad to force acceptance.”

Dupree on Nov 2, 2013 at 08:29:45

“No one is holding a gun at your head to force you to accept anything. It is displaying a couple that ordinarily is not seen. It is up to you to decide if human beings should be accepted for at the end of the day....they are simply human beings. It still your choice to be in a state of regression or progression.”

“His father was not abusing him at the time, if he was an abusive father, that is speculative right now. Using that as an excuse doesn't make it true. IF the father was abusing him or his siblings at the time, then it can be justified. The kid killed and should pay for his act. As for the judge, he did his job!”

“It doesn't matter if he was 10 or 14, he murdered someone. If there was a problem with the dad, then he should of been reported but you can not go around killing someone that you or other people do not like. Even children need to be punished for their behavior.”

“In ten years, she should of found a higher paying job. It's not MacDonald's responsibility to pay more than a service is worth. If she needs more money to help support her kids, then maybe she should tell her husband to get a second job. McDonald's only owes her the money her job is worth. For thousands of years people managed to live without handouts from McDonalds or the government.”

“Does that include all the big oil companies and the farmers and the rest who get subsidised by the government with our tax dollars? I believe everyone should suppot them-selves but i sure won't complain about some of the poor getting assistance while many of the wealthiest have been getting corporate welfare for decades.”

fets49 on Oct 26, 2013 at 17:29:48

“Get real! Handouts from McDonald's? So, people should be pulling their own weight, but employers should be allowed to make it impossible for them to do so? How in the world does that make sense? The whole economy would be better off if employees were paid a living wage.

Corporate greed is damaging the country. And everyone does not have the same opportunities in life no matter what you want to believe.”

Alki Gifting on Oct 26, 2013 at 17:16:11

“It's not handouts...it's called fair wages. The minimum wage is way too low. Why should she have to work two jobs when the company she works for collect billions in profit. Makes no sense. They should collect profit and a lot of I;, after all they worked hard to put a business together and sustain it, however, it's these little people that make the day to day happen for them. They can afford to pay more and they should be forced to...since they clearly have no conscience.

I have hired people before and have never paid less than $10/hr which is not a lot, so why the heck can't these big companies have a little more heart for other fellow human beings”

“Do youremember the days when a bus driver, or cook, or construction laborrer could work a 40 hour week, pay a mortgage and send his kids to college? What happened? The devaluing of work by corporate america. A 50 year effort to slowly drive wages down in order to increase profitablility. This country's economy was bulit on slave labor in the 17 and 1800's. As time has passed the current capitalist model has proven that it does not work, when practiced as it is done here in this 'land of opportunity'.”

“If you are indeed 70 years old then you must remember that before 1968, you could buy a gun through the mail. There was a lot less violence then. It is society that has changed. It's not more gun control we need, it's probably less control. Beware when the government states it wants to keep people safe.”

“That is true and if you want to go back to the 70s go ahead. Todays America is a lot more violent and the NRA, by not recognizing this, has placed more people at risk. Why would any sane person object to improved background checks, elimination of huge magazines and clips, and the unregisterd selling of guns through stra purchases.. There is no good reason...

“I don't think scientist lie, just that they are out to prove a point in which they are getting their grants to prove. They get grants to prove evolution but no scientist will get a grant to try and prove otherwise. The same with global warming, how many grants are there to prove we did not create climate change.....Zero! Everyone has an agenda and it involves money.”

Maezeppa on Oct 20, 2013 at 20:08:36

“Oh, nonsense. Please don't pretend that scientists obtain grants to "prove" something. Evolution is established fact. Scientists don't question whether it's true any more than they question whether water is wet. As to climate change, scientists were tasked with determining IF the climate was changing. The answer is YES.”

ImJustSayingNoOffense on Oct 18, 2013 at 19:52:24

“First, learn how science works. You don't get grants to 'prove' anything, you get grants to research something and see what the research indicates in regards to broader question. Secondarily, it is not as if they just say they looked in a microscope and this is what they saw, they provide evidence of their findings, evidence that is checked and referenced and validated. You can go out and purpose a grant yourself, many creationists do and there are institutes like the ICF that only fund creationists but guess what? They still have not published a single paper in a peer reviewed journal or presented any evidence that contradicts the scientific fact of evolution. There is no conspiracy against you or your silly ideas, your side has plenty of funding and support; it just has a complete lack of facts and reality.”

“Lol.

This attorney's education is just fine, thx. It' not possible to be more clueless, dude.  China is NOT currently a communist country. Dude, it has a stock market, private property, & a dozens of billionaires. BILLIONAIRES. The name still has 'communist' in it...but it's not. Read a friggin' newspaper. They switched in about 1979. Google Deng Xiaping...he took them capitalist decades ago. Decades ago.

Cuba is authoritarian, it's not communist. They have small private markets now, particularly agrarian ones. Have you noticed yet that 'communism' and 'private' economic activity are EXACT, LINEAR OPPOSITES.

I actually don't know about Laos. I doubt it's communist, though.

Vietnam is the same as China, it has a vast private economy. You can't have that and be 'communist'...they are opposites.

North Korea is undoubtedly a communist country and has that name. Which was my point, not yours.

Dude, the cold war ended a couple decades ago. Capitalism won, 'communism' lost. Really. Which is why pretty much outside of North Korea, THEY DON'T EXIST ANYMORE.

I've been on this site for 3 years, and I've never encountered someone as clueless as this. Your list of 'communist' countries is really just a list of countries with the name 'communist' in it.

You are flat clueless, get back to work on the GED classes.”

“There are actually more countries besides N. Korea that are communist. Ever hear of China, Cuba, Vietnam? Obamacare is not about insuring people since there will be less people insured under his plan. It is about control. As for the requiring of people to buy, that requirement is selective. Major business, Obama's friends and Congress are exempt. If it was so good everyone, (Congress as well as business and the President himself) should be forced into it. People who pass these bills without reading those bills should be forced to be included. BTW, Ever hear of the New Democrat Party? Check it out.”

“China, Cuba, and Vietnam are NOT 'communist.' Cuba comes closest, but has private industry now. China is the 2nd largest CAPITALIST nation on earth, despite their formal name. Same with Vietnam, it's been capitalist for many years despite their name.

“It's not really surprising. It will happen in most states eventually when Obamacare kicks in.

We will still have 20 million uninsured but that's ok, as long as a girl can get an abortion and still go out on Friday nights. Doesn't matter if many will die, the important thing is a bill got passed and they can say it is for woman's health.”
