Ruiz Family sees their 'Makeover' home today

HA! I SCREWED UP ON THE CODES IN MY LAST COMMENT. SORRY, KIDS. HERE'S MY LIST OF REPLIES AGAIN! BTW. KVIA.COM BREAKING NEWS ALERT TO MY E-MAIL ADDRESS--BUSH HAS COMMUTED THE SENTENCES OF COMPEAN AND RAMOS! [quote who="Fernando Matagorda"].. ...They need to make sure that everybody that is there is a legal alien.[/quote] How in bloody hell does this have ANYTHING to do with the article? Typical ignorant El Pasoan tossing out the race card. Stick to the subject, man. [quote who="passerby "]Do they really need a $200,000 house??? With all the really needy families in the area and economics as they are, I think this is excessive.[/quote] Here's the sad reality of life: the world's not gonna stop turning because a few people are getting by on hard times. Some people will simply stumble upon chance, like the Ruiz family, while others will not be so fortunate. Ask yourself this question: if there are so many other needy families in the area, some who may have even submitted an entry for Extreme Makeover, then why haven't any of those families stepped up in front of a news camera and spoken out about why they think they deserved it more than the Ruiz family? [quote who="David Dorchester"]I can't believe the negativity I'm hearing from El Pasoans. I should state that it's just a few, but to be upset and try and say she's not worthy.[/quote] Don't act surprised, David. We live in a city where the people are suppressed by a lack of better opportunities. This suppression is bound to create a breed of ignorant, jealous El Pasoans who start shrieking and hissing as soon as they see a fellow citizen move on up. It takes a little getting used to, but it really does get annoying every now and then. [quote who="juanpabl a"]I thought that we provide food, shelter, clothing to those in juarez through illegal immigration[/quote ] You and Fernando Matagorda must be friends. [quote who="Pete "]BTW...

The incredible amount of people actually volunteering tell the real story of how El Paso truly feels.[/quote] Good to see you on here again, Amazed. Notice in the video "Extreme Trash Talk", how none of the people who trash talk in here actually had the courage to get on camera and express their sentiments. Belinda Madrid and Leonard Martinez had to use posts from Topix, instead. I found it humorous.

[quote who="Ralph central EP"]That family is not deserving!!!!!!!!! [/quote] Okay Ralph, give us good, solid, concrete reasons why the family is not deserving. Do you have facts to back up your claim, because anyone else can easily throw the facts in your face about why the family DOES deserve the house. You give some, you get some back. They've given more than enough. It's time for them to get something in return for their humble acts.  (Jan 19, 2009 | post #32)

My condolences go out to his family. Such a young life is always a life gone much too soon.  (Jan 11, 2009 | post #1)

Man is found dead with hands severed

It does seem like that might be happening. Either that, or extortionists from the Sinaloan cartel are taking out the competition, only to extort those same individuals. However, the only reason that would be happening is if they actually ran out of to extort, which is highly unlikely in a city of nearly 2 million people.  (Jan 10, 2009 | post #6)

'Extreme Makeover' may have cast of thousands

I'll have to give you that one, Mr. Maynard. It's not that your'e bashing El Paso like other bloggers are thinking. I agree with you that the main driver of people wanting to volunteer may very well be the fact that they may get to come out on TV. This can happen anywhere.  (Jan 8, 2009 | post #8)

Fever, cough to keep Margaret in hospital a few days

And this is coming from a person who goes by "2 cents" and, in turn, does not give his/her full name either? It doesn't get any more ironic than that now, doesn't it? I'm not your friend, by the way ;) My name is actually a portmanteau of my two given surnames. It may not be my full name, but at least it has an element of reality and of who I really am and is closer to a real name than "2 cents" is. Just the mere fact that you responded to my comment in such a manner very strongly suggests that my comment indeed struck a nerve because you're probably a guilty party.  (Jan 8, 2009 | post #16)

QUOTE who="Again "]That's exactly what is needed a flip of the page. New stories. Like I had a cold last week where is my story?[/QUOTE] Ah, another reminder of how easy it is to express demeaning comments while hiding behind the shield of a computer monitor and a false alias. However, this shield still gives the righteous a glimpse at the faces of ophidian cowards who refuse to give us a clear view of exactly who they are and truly stand up for what they believe in. I would challenge those like you to meet Margaret in person, look into her eyes, and tell her how sick and tired you are of hearing and reading about how her life and body are quickly wasting away before us, how you can care less, how you'd rather be reading about something more interesting than some teenager dying of cancer, living out her final days the best way she knows how. But, I dare not issue such a challenge, because for one, I know it would not be accepted, and two, Margaret literally doesn't have time to be dwelling on the ignorance and selfishness of others, and neither should I, or anyone for that matter. Tomorrow is never promised to any of us, and Margaret knows that better than anyone else right now because she knows she's approaching the end of her journey and fast, while it is uncertain for the rest of us whether we are even beginning ours. I feel privileged to read the stories about her and what she's doing before her transition into the next life. She's giving people a first-hand account of what it's like to be living what may be your final moments. This is the same way we should ALL be living--treating every single day like it might be the last, because none of us know when our card will be dealt. God Bless Margaret, those who pray for her, and even the heartless who have their own selfish concerns.  (Jan 6, 2009 | post #12)

Which is why I mentioned earlier that at least MJ should be legalized because it does NOT fall under the category of being a narcotic like meth, crack, and cocaine. The marijuana trade would automatically become a legal, legit business once possession of the drug itself would be decriminalized.  (Jan 6, 2009 | post #91)

In my opinion, at least marijuana should be legalized. Narcotics should remain illegal (MJ is not a narcotic) because they are far more dangerous.  (Jan 6, 2009 | post #10)

Well, Perry, I'm sure at first the family was extremely disappointed about the fact that the girl was impregnated at such a young age, but eventually, the family had to learn to get over it and welcome that new life into the world with open arms. I speak from experience. My sister is having a baby out of wedlock, and although she is considerably older than this young girl was, the disappointment was initial, but eventually you have to put that past you and think about the baby. Welcoming a new life into the world is always an exciting experience, without regarding the circumstances in which that child was brought into the world.  (Jan 6, 2009 | post #6)

70 teens charged after party raids

I'm always willing to discuss. It's just tough to discuss with kids who are in that same age group as those who got caught at these two locations over the weekend because of what you mentioned in this last comment: they think they're big timers and got all the right in the world to do whatever they want--underage drinking, curfew violations, tagging ("fools' names, like fools' faces, often seen in public places"). We all did our share of trouble making, and now it's a lot easier to understand why things like this were so frustrating to our elders, because now we ARE the elders. I'm only 25, but I now see how big of a difference my level of thinking is compared to that of a 17-18 year old kid. It's amazing how much one can grow in just a few years, which is why I urge these youngsters to just keep living, but live right. Most of them won't heed that advice, but eventually they will grow into drinking and clubbing legally.  (Jan 6, 2009 | post #74)
