Fort Smith Teen Suspended Over T-Shirt Trouble

So true! Maybe everyone should take a look at this: http://www.youtube .com/watch?v=bEpQ8 fFQ7Rk or even this: http://www.youtube .com/watch?v=QJtjq LUHYoY  (Oct 16, 2010 | post #24)

1. Can't argue with that 2. Very true 3. If I was renting an apartment, home, trailer, etc. I would most certainly expect my landlord to correct the problem, it is of course part of any good lease agreement. Treating for Bed Bugs the correct way, can be very, very costly....if it's done correctly, you're looking at $3,000 at the low end...hence the reason it is the landlords responsibility and not the tenants responsibility.  (Oct 16, 2010 | post #35)

Didn't take it as you being mean at all.....but, housekeeping has nothing to do with Bed Bugs. Bed Bugs feed on blood and are "travelers " latching on to your body or your warm clothes in a suit case for instance and that is how they are carried from location to location. The Empire State Building in NYC along with Bloomingdales Department store are just 2 locations in NYC that have been infested with Bed Bugs in the last several weeks. I've been to both sites in NYC in the past, and they were both spotless...there are no housekeeping issues at all at either of those locations....which should make it clear that housekeeping(or the lack there of) has nothing to do with having bed bugs  (Oct 15, 2010 | post #31)

From the GHA website: "Gateway Plaza is a senior high-rise community for adults age 50 and over." Now keep in mind, elderly sites that receive federal funding may have residents younger than age 50 (to be classified as elderly in subsidized housing the head of household must be 62 or older in most cases) that is because elderly sites also offer housing to a HOH that is classified as disabled. So, technically, Gateway may have residents younger than 50 if they are classified as disabled.  (Oct 15, 2010 | post #29)

Well, what do you do? I explained what I do and that I was quite familiar with bed bugs, in fact in my post I also said the only 100% effective way to get rid of bed bugs is a high powered heat treatment...and low and behold the apartment community in this story is bringing in experts to do just that. Hate to break it to you...I've got my facts straight...ya might want to check yourself!  (Oct 14, 2010 | post #25)

You're incorrect...a bed bug infestation has nothing to do with the cleanliness or filth in ones home. As I said in my previous post, I work in the property management industry and have dealt with this issue on 2 separate occasions at 2 separate apartment communities. Both apartments with the issues were 2 of the cleanest apartments that I had ever seen...not a trace of dirt, dust, clutter, etc. Get your facts straight before you start judging!  (Oct 13, 2010 | post #20)

Actually the only 100% way to rid your home of Bed Bugs is through a high powered heat treatment. Long story short, a pest control service brings in massive heaters that will heat the home to somewhere between 200 and 300 degrees for several hours. Anyone can have Bed Bugs and it has nothing to do with ones housekeeping. As someone that works in the Property Management industry, I have dealt with the issue at an apartment community. It's sickening to see so many hate filled comments on this board where people are judging and assuming that Bed Bugs only affect the poor or people with poor housekeeping. The #1 way for Bed Bugs to become a problem in your home is from traveling oversees or taking a cruise. Correct me if I am wrong, but most low income individuals can't afford to take a cruise or travel internationally. You all need to do some research before you jump on a forum and start judging something or someone that you have absolutely no clue about.  (Oct 13, 2010 | post #12)

The only good thing about your idea...is that then there would be no more republican party...since they'd be on that mars mission. Other than that...how about an adult conversation instead of your childish behavior.  (Oct 8, 2010 | post #49)

Yes, it's his fault as well as those that talk just like him, and that sir makes them ignorant...not me. If you didn't know, young people listen to and act on the words they hear come out of the mouths of adults. These senseless suicides could have been prevented...however their bullies learned their hate filled speech from adults such as Mr. Brown. Yes, I am angry, it's sickening to hear the hate spewed out of Mr. Brown's mouth and those like him. No, I don't need professional help, I believe in and stand for equality...however Mr. Brown could certainly use some professional help.  (Oct 8, 2010 | post #39)

Misguided? Really? How about taking a look in the mirror...and you'll see the reason behind all of these senseless suicides by youth all across this country. You and those that think like you are the real bullies...you are sick!  (Oct 8, 2010 | post #35)

The fact is that Mr. Brown is a public official...and he and any other public official is held to a higher standard. Sure there are plenty of bigots out there...however Mr. Brown is in office to serve the people of his district...no matter what their shape, size, religion, sexual orientation, color, etc. Anyone with common sense would take a look at the massive rise in teen suicides and know that they come from bigots like Mr. Brown and others that feel the need to spew hate. It's 2010...time for people to wake up and realize that YES there are people out there in the world who are different then they are...and they need to get over it.  (Oct 7, 2010 | post #33)

Keep in mind that many so called "christians " from this area talk exactly like the fools at Westboro Baptist...they are both wrong and they are both certainly not "christians "!  (Oct 6, 2010 | post #4)

Wrong....don't forget Prop 8 was overturned in CA...because...it's unconstituional...remember..no one voted on heterosexual marriage. Also...don't forget that there is a really good chance that being able to get a divorce in CA is going to become illegal!  (Oct 6, 2010 | post #27)
