Jefferson Park poised for a proud rebirth

Of course HG is a big fake. He does not exist. "HG" is the phony screen name of a troll who likes to post things to get people riled up. Is he a liberal who tweaks conservatives by overstating what he actually believes? Or is he a conservative who tweaks liberals by posting as a parody of liberal do-goodism? I'm not sure. But he's certainly a troll, and the people who take him seriously and respond to him are just egging him on. And as to the people on this thread who actually seem to think that "Yolanda " is a real person ... sheesh, how dense can you be? "Yolanda " is a phony screen name of a troll who likes to post racist garbage as a pathetic attempt at humor.  (Jun 15, 2009 | post #46)

Museum gunman had 'long history with neo-Nazis'

Nice try. The story of black-on-black crime and gang problems, as a whole, has gotten plenty of media attention nationally. Each individual instance of violence does not draw so much attention because, sadly, there are too many of them in each big city. This story, on the other hand, is about a gunman who entered a national museum in our capital, apparently intent on opening fire. And he was doing it with a political/social agenda, not as a crime of convenience or because he needed drug money. So, yeah, that would seem to stand out as more of a story. Not because of the scope of the crime, but because the circumstances are more noteworthy. But you ignore that and make the tired old "liberal media" charge.  (Jun 11, 2009 | post #33)

1.) I don't believe Jackson or Sharpton or Wright shot and killed anyone. 2.) Jackson's "hymietown " remark was widely reported and widely criticized at a time when he was trying to run for president. You act like it was ignored. 3.) Drive-by shootings don't get covered? Since when? You comment all the time on these boards on the number of homicides in the local press - now you're saying they don't get any coverage? 3.) You can't compare random drive-by shootings to the actions of someone who aligns himself with supremacy groups and hate groups and commits a murder at a national museum in our capital city because of that philosophy. You just like to stir the pot.  (Jun 11, 2009 | post #14)

Dog leaps from vehicle, bites woman's throat

You contradict yourself. You say that a lot of dogs will become aggressive and even violent if a misguided person attempts to pet them, or offers a hand to sniff, or even just gets too close. But then you conclude that this woman must have been taunting the dog. Maybe she just got too close. We don't know. It's the owners fault for leaving the dog unrestrained and unattended.  (Jun 5, 2009 | post #33)

York brawl results in three people charged with gang part...

They may not be charged with a "hate crime," because it doesn't fit the legal definition, but they are frequently charged with gang participation, which has much the same effect.  (Jun 5, 2009 | post #93)

No. Most crimes are crimes of opportunity, crimes designed to get money, crimes that grow out of drug deals gone bad, etc. Relatively few crimes, I would say, specifically stem from the perpetrators saying "Let's target a specific demographic group, not to gain anything but just to express hatred of them." Back in the day when the KKK would lynch a black man, it wasn't because they were going to profit from it - it was because they hated blacks. When those punks killed Matthew Shepherd and hung like like a scarecrow in the field, they weren't trying to rob him. They hated gay people and they decided to target one, lure him and kill him for the sole reason that he was gay. That's the concept of a "hate crime." It's an imperfect concept, but no, most crimes do not fit that definition.  (Jun 5, 2009 | post #92)

Nope, pilotonline has the exact same info. That must be all the police are saying.  (Jun 5, 2009 | post #24)

Stabbing victim dies, suspect faces murder charge

If you're going to cut-and-paste spam into various message boards, at least pick a more reputable writer than Michelle Malkin to plagiarize. Why don't you give us your own thoghts, rather than cutting-and-pastin g someone else's thoughts and passing them off as your own?  (Jun 3, 2009 | post #15)

Obama's Date Night

You think GW Bush never made a personal trip during his eight years in office? When he did, you think it wasn't paid for with tax dollars? That's the whole point. Every president does this.  (Jun 2, 2009 | post #31)

Obama's Date Night

I don't believe in everything he says and does. If we ever have a president from any party with whom I agree on EVERYTHING, I will be scared schitless. But I do not think he is dangerous, I do not think he is taking away any of our rights and I do not think he needs to be fired or impeached or feared in any way.  (Jun 2, 2009 | post #30)

Tiller the "baby Killer" goes down

I agree. My only quibble would be a semantic one. Yes, an abortion ends a life. Whether it's a human life is a gray area depending on what stage of development. That fertilized egg, that embryo, is certainly alive, but I'm not prepaered to equate it to a human being - certainly not legally, and again, it's open to interpretation morally/spirituall y. That's why I don't believe tha a woman who has an abortion in the first trimester is guilty of the same sin as the mother who smothers her 3-month-old infant because she can't care for the child. As you point out, in both instances, there is the ending of a life. But I don't see the two sins as morally equivalent. There's this whole question of when life begins, and when a fertilized egg becomes a human being. Some say it's instantaneous. Others say it's at birth. A lot, probably a majority, say it's at some point in between that is impossible to define in any kind of precise way. And that's why abortion is such a difficult issue to grapple with, legally and morally and emotionally.  (Jun 2, 2009 | post #38)

Tiller the "baby Killer" goes down

Of course you're right about the fact that it's easier relate to and feel compassion for an adult human being with a family and friends and community than it is to an unborn child. That's at the heart of the issue. But again, I think it's too easy (on your part) to say that there is no gray area in the statement that every abortion ends a life. Let's for the moment talk about the early-stage abortions, when it's a microscopic fertilized egg, or an embryo/fetus. Some people believe with all their hearts that the instant the egg is fertilized, that is a human being and a human life. Other people believe with all their heart that this fertilized egg represents the potential for human life, or the start of a human life, but that the tiny little organism is not actually a human being until some later (impossible to pinpoint) stage in gestation and development. I think there is valid merit to both arguments, and I fully understand why there is so much emotion to this debate. I don't think either side is *wrong,* except when they to to the extent to say that their viewpoint is the only one with any validity. I will say that just about every abortion represents human failure, to the extent that most unwanted pregnancies could have been avoided, and I will say that there are far too many abortions in the U.S. and we as a society should work on all levels to cut down on that number. But you know what? It's very common for women to miscarry before they even know they're pregnant - to "lose" a fertilized egg very shortly after conception without ever knowing that she is pregnant to begin with. I find it hard to feel as though this is a tragedy on the level of an adolescent child dying of cancer, to use one example. If you equate a fertilized egg to a grown human being, then it seems as though the spontaneous miscarriage of that microscopic embryonic cell is no different from an adolescent or an adult dying from disease. I can't see that, though I would never deny that a miscarriage, even at a very early stage, is traumatic and tragic.  (Jun 2, 2009 | post #35)

Obama's Date Night

There is plenty of room in the national discussion for disagreement with the president and the government. But the idea that Obama "takes away our rights" is silly. What rights has he taken away? Taxes have always been a fact of life in this country. There will always be disagreement about who to tax, how to tax, how much to tax, and what to spend the taxpayers' money on -- but suggesting that the president and Congress are "crooks" and "taking away our rights" is just nonsensical blather. You disagree with the man's policies. Say that. Don't make yourself look foolish by screaming that he's a crook and a dangerous man and taking away our rights. When you do that, you're basically saying that anyone who disagrees with you is dangerous and crooked. And back to my original point, your apparent belief that no one is expressing dissent, that no one is criticizing Obama and Congress, that there is no form of concerted, grass-roots opposition to his policies ... that tells me that you're either not paying attention, that you're delusional, or that you are easily manipulated by those who are trying to push a specific political and social agenda.  (Jun 2, 2009 | post #26)

Abstinence works

Gaw and the Captain are exactly right. Yes, abstinence does prevent pregnacies. But telling your teens (and pre-teens) not to have sex does not, all by itself, constitute sex ed and it does nothing to prevent pregnancies - not in your own little family, and certainly not in American society. Abstinence-only sex ed programs will not stop unwanted pregnancies any more than "Just Say No" ended the drug problem.  (Jun 2, 2009 | post #3)
