Gotta love America. We pray for someone to break in so we can turn them into hamburger. It's becauseRead More we're a Christian country. Jesus said, "if anyone tries to hurt you or take something that belongs to you, turn them into hamburger with your guns". It's right there in the Bible for anyone to read.

This harridan should have been disbarred,and held for obstruction charges after the Vince FosterRead More affair. She had his office sealed.She broke the law.She did not have the authority to do that. She was a do nothing Senator,and an incompetent,criminally negligent Secretary of State.

She is "central" in giving the USA the reputation they have now---"step over that redRead More line and I will deny that I said that"

When you say "Senator," the term "do nothing" is already implied

Cops got a chance to play with their toys. Relax people. It's not like you had to respondRead More personally. Stop saying it's a waste of money. Then money is absolutely minimal. These guys were not called away from their golf games. I would also like to compliment the responders for not accidentally killing someone. It showed professionalism and did not add to the "trend" of killing "innocent" people; which is becoming an issues to watch. The people incensed over this should focus their anger on plastic shopping bags as many others are doing over at another great Patch piece. Evil lurks at the checkout counters across America!

Mr Falik, I think we all got the gist of the article. But problems with public education go wayRead More beyond dropping inbloom. That is a drop in the bucket.
CAPICU April 23, 2014 at 01:21 pm
I believe we all need to be concerned and also need to know in which bucket, that drop is droppingRead More into. You find that bucket with that drop and you will find the thief that's been stealing our drops.
Bob Zahm April 23, 2014 at 01:24 pm
@Ditty51 - Common Core remains for NY - and rightfully so. NY State has backed out of InBloom, butRead More remains - legally - committed to providing on-line access (portals) for parents and others to be able to see how their children are doing in school. The requirement that an "e file" for each child be created and maintained throughout their NYS education remains on the books. The only change that has happened is now NYS must find another way to support such a system. No real change here.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld Michigan's ban on affirmative action in college admissions.
"The Black Panther of Poetry" April 23, 2014 at 01:58 pm
Fair is Fair!!! Now if we can only get Affirmative Action totally out of such sports as BasketballRead More and Football and the Music industry, to name a few, which African-Americans are by far the most innovative and talented and who very essence has kept it alive so that others could thrive and benefit from. The minorities in these financially lucrative areas of our society is truly and obviously inferior but yet is given a shoe in because there race promotes, finance and overly spectates in these Professions by default in a sense because they have the "wherewithall" to do so because of centuries of discrimination and also present discrimination and Social Stratification.
Jeanne April 23, 2014 at 02:09 pm
Wouldn't the fairest admission to University be judged completely by scholastic ability ? ThatRead More would mean not accepting students because of sex, color, class, ethnicity, or prior connection to the school. The college population might become a little "lopsided," but wouldn't the result be more intelligent young people to go on to graduate school ? America, and the general public would benefit because in our midst would be the best scientists, doctors, instructors, etc. for us to call upon ? Our country would become stronger still, which seems to become more urgent with every passing day.
Kevin April 23, 2014 at 02:24 pm
Black Panther,the music industry? Really? You consider a bunch of misogynist,foul mouth rappersRead More "innovative and talented"? Where do you live?
Debbie Pepe-Pylyp April 22, 2014 at 02:09 pm
Can someone from Patch explain to me why it is that anytime I link over from my FB page to your realRead More estate listing posts on patch.com the page is blank and there is no real estate information to look at? For some reason where there should be a picture of homes for sale/sold/rent, it is always blank, therefore I cannot look at anything you list! I asked the same thing several months ago and still have no answer!
Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.
CowDung April 23, 2014 at 02:44 pm

Stating that the history books are anti US and pro global without any proof is very misleading. WhenRead More I was going to school we had classes about world history and separate classes about US history. So of course some textbooks about the history of the world might not mention the United States. It didn't exist yet.
Matt Miller April 23, 2014 at 03:05 pm
Comments like "back when I was in school" are completely laughable. I don't brag aboutRead More beating my kid in a foot race because I'm faster then he is. So why should me being able to solve a math problem faster then him mean that the new way doesn't work? I've been using math for decades and he'll be just beginning to learn it. Of course I'm going to know the answer before him. Also, what's wrong with setting higher standards for our kids? When I was in school my "reading and basic learning level" was always a grade or two above my actual grade level. It's easier for them to learn new things when they are younger then it is when they're older.

FOR THOSE WHO LIKE AMAZON PRIME OVER NETFLIX: Here's an interesting article from today (23 Apr 2014)Read More about how Amazon Prime just got HBO to stream at least some of its older content, plus "HBO GO," to Amazon's new Fire TV box, thereby making NetFlix upset because NetFlix (nor any other streaming service, including HULU) has never been able to get any HBO content; and so Amazon has scored a real coup!

Should plastic bags be a thing of the past?
CAPICU April 23, 2014 at 11:14 am
OMG I can't believe this; I just saw a plastic bag, float across my office window. It mocked me forRead More a few seconds, as it nonchalantly hovered in midair, taunting me with its bag like features. And just as it came, it quickly vanished from my view. It’s probably hovering its way.... to its next victim.
Frank Esposito April 23, 2014 at 11:48 am
CAPICU, was that bag mostly white with 2 loop holes for convenient carry- ability? If so, it justRead More blew by my window now. This could be the first signs of a zombie-like outbreak. I wish I had shared the rage and anger for plastic shopping bags like others here did. I feel any life lost during the coming attack of the plastics bags rest on my shoulders now. God forgive me. God forgive me!
Frank Esposito April 23, 2014 at 02:29 pm
Oh my God!!!!!!!! There are 5 of them now outside my house just blowing around on the lawn.Read More Wait...... Here comes a few more. I'm outside now hitting them with a stick. It doesn't seem to affect them at all.... more and more are coming. CAPICU, I chucked a paper shopping bag at them and they all turned and starting attacking it. It gave me time to escape. I learned that trick from when Shane shot the fat dude in The Walking Dead. I'm headed out now to try to hook up with survivors. The world as we know it will never be the same again. OH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry, Autistic boy, but there are a multitude of crimes here. These so called 'friends' abused youRead More terribly ~ called 'bullying', & that alone cannot be tolerated. Then, there is animal cruelty involved, another terrible crime, plus, harassment of all kinds, leudness, & who knows what else. These 'friends' need to be charged & made aware of the seriousness of their deeds, punished accordingly & helped through proper mental councelling.

I agree with B. Dub 100%! How was this kid able to scale a fence and just walk right over to theRead More plane? TSA: for all the harassing you do in the terminal...you ain't all that!! As far as the kid being a runaway..maybe he does face some serious abuse issues at home. He's damn lucky to be alive. But, I raised three boys, and a 16 year old boy can runaway for any collage of reasons. My kids never ran away but, I'm wondering if the fact that the plane was going to HAWAII has anything to do with it. It sounds a little compulsive to me. CPA need good follow up on this. Thank you lucky stars kid!

There are two separate issues here. The first and certainly the most obvious is security failure.Read More The second is to determine what is in the best interest of the teen, as well as the public.. He needs a psych eval, at the very least. Then again, so does most of the public.

Agranon - I'm a moron because I am tired of everybody and his mother trying to put themselves inRead More every story? Then so be it - I'm a moron. To be honest, I am also really tired of all the people that were compelled to run the Boston Marathon because "I had to finish for all those who couldn't." Get over yourself. It was a tragedy. Those responsible should be ripped apart by dogs. I sincerely hope the families of those affected can move on somehow. But how does Mary Jane Smith running the marathon help ANYBODY but herself? She's not doing it for "those who can't". She's doing it to maybe get on TV and she's probably feeling a little sanctimonious because she ran 26.2 miles and you didn't. It's like, "what did YOU do to help these people?" Same as you - nothing.
