Typical backwards and unfair legal system....punish the victim and teach the bully that it is OK toRead More bully all under the guise of "law". Money involved somewhere? Like in the pockets of the bullies' parents?

Take any bullies(male or female) to a maximum security Federal Prison for a period of just oneRead More week(any one of the 4 seasonal school breaks), to live as the inmates do. Shared toilets, communal showers, eating in a cafeteria with armed guards present, waking up at a prescribed time, sleeping at a prescribed time, doing exactly what the guards tell you - quickly, NO family visitation for the week, cavity probing. Solitary confinement for just that one week.Yes, that should make a desirable impression on the tough bullies. A tune-up!

"Anybody who comes in contact with a child" ... so ... everybody. Or am I reading thatRead More incorrectly?

Kaelsma what they mean by that is if any random child comes to you and you see they were hurt orRead More they said they were hurt by someone you are obligated to report it

The man bought 25 winning Quinto tickets, but threw them away.
John Child April 15, 2014 at 08:41 am
What's worse? Throwing away the winning ticket? or everybody KNOWING that I threw away the winningRead More ticket? Reminds me of the dumb joke about the old man who went to church every day to pray to win the lottery... after years of constant prayer day in and day out finally a voice came from out of the sky commanding him: "You Gotta Buy A Ticket!!" Or in this case the punch line would be: "Don't Throw Away The Ticket!!"

My office has a lotto pool going and even when I see that our tickets haven't won, I scan them intoRead More the lotto machine the next day just to be sure. Measure twice, cut once.

I could swear I've heard where the lottery awarded the money to someone in the same situationRead More somehow. I suppose that no one disputed their claim at that time.
Passover eatures six symbolic foods, including matzo, a cracker-like unleavened bread symbolizing the Exodus from ancient Egypt when there was not enough time to let the bread to rise. Patch file photo.
andy fischer April 14, 2014 at 11:41 am
"A number of contemporary scholars believe the story of the Exodus is apocryphal and that theRead More Israelites were never among the peoples subjugated by the ancient Egyptians. Regardless of any historical debate, most rabbis believe...." So even if it is pretty much agreed all or most of these events are myths, followers are encouraged to perpetuate superstitious practices - just like Catholics not eating meat on lent Fridays.
MIKE M April 14, 2014 at 01:43 pm
Correction: You state: "Unlike most Jewish holy days, there is no synagogue service forRead More Passover, although some congregations and other organizations conduct Seders." In fact, there is a holiday service for the first two days and the last two days of Passover, as there is for the other pilgrimage festivals of Sukkot, and Shavuot. On the last day of the holiday, next Tuesday, the Yizkor service, a memorial service for the dead is added to the service.

To Martha Lieberman, some advice to find happiness in your life: Cook up a nice meal, invite aRead More homeless person from your neighborhood to share and read a story from the Haggadah. That homeless person would feel like a Mensch again, and, imagine, you, yourself, delivered him/her from bondage. G-d would smile at you throughout the whole Seder meal. Shalom!

folks, please stop trashing the Mystical church of Jesus over the horrible mistakes of the CorporateRead More church - stop using pedophile priests to denigrate Jesus -- He already warned us all of the demonic forces. Why do you think pedophiles join the church? To tear it down.
Buzz351 April 16, 2014 at 08:07 am
@ Christie, you are correct on why these pedophile priests joined the church. The Blessed VirginRead More Mother appeared to the children of Fatima and demanded that the pope ,along with all the bishops of the world,to consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart. After Vatican II the church was swamped with many new priests... many devout communists, Marxists who had no intention of serving God but to destroy souls, ala pedophile priests, and shut down the Catholic Church to forge ahead with their godless communists agenda. Our Blessed Virgin Mother promises a long period of world peace when/if the consecration of Russia takes place. With a large amount of communists infiltrated in the upper ranks of the Vatican it will be a miracle if our current pope heeds the Blessed Mother and performs the consecration. Dominus Vobiscum
christie nicolle April 16, 2014 at 10:22 am
yes Buzz, let's hope! The devil's ultimate weapon has always been sexual deviants to humiliateRead More God's house... Believers need to rise above that + be spiritually mature lest they abandon the Absolute.

Its amazing how many young people text when they really have so little to nothing to actually say!Read More And ironically in spite of all the texts and sexts and pic sharing, teens today are more anti-social than really at any time in society. They will bury their faces in their phones to exchange 'heys' with people across town or thousands of miles away yet totally intentionally ignore all living breathing human beings sitting/standing next to them.. Such a lost generation and most haven't even hit legal drinking age.

I implore you if you are quoting real dangers try quoting studies not news articles. There areRead More hundreds of real science based documents that show this substantially less harmful. If is only proven further by the public health now resorting to main stream media for sensationalize obscure statistical facts like if there were 0 calls last year and now there are 300 it is a 300 percent increase, but they fail to report the 16000 cosmetic related poisoning that occur yearly. Check your data and compare apples to apples. E-cigs are substantially less harmful than tobacco combustible EVEN the American Lung Association admits this. Why stand by and 400,000 continue to cause harm to themselves by vilifying the e-cig industry. Put you outrage on the FDA who has sat for 7 years on this product and allowed 2.8 million people to die from combustible tobacco related illness. This quit smoking or die mentality is childish and irresponsible. Help a smoker live, stop these insane legislation and civil ordinances

This is really getting ridiculous! Are we the strong American citizens that proudly stand and singsRead More "the land of the free and the home of the brave"? Or are we sniveling, sissified, compliant order takers who let's our government decide what is and isn't good for us? Why doesn't the mayor focus on the rampant violence, trash strewn streets, drug infested neighborhoods, children without role models, school closings that are very much needed open, veterans sleeping on the streets while a welfare recipient of 5 years with 6 kids has government housing? How about focusing on the why the "City of Brotherly Love" is a crime ridden cesspool that ranks in the top 5 most dangerous cities in the US? We left our food in the hands of government and we now have GMO's, an outrageous amount of people dying from cancer and an even bigger count of thyroid disease patients, due to the government's need to remove iodine from our foods. We left our medications and health in the hands of government, and we now have people dying bc they can't afford 2k a pill for liver or lung cancers, medications with so many side effects that some just choose to live with their illness unmedicated and insurance companies deciding what medications are right for you. Instead he is focusing on people complaining about others blowing out water vapor? Guess he can't fix the real problems of this city, so he's grabbing at anything he can. What's the matter? Are there too many people smoking water and getting healthier, that they no longer have to pay higher insurance premiums? Rich losing kickbacks from the healthier poor? Sickening!

LUVIN the NEW LAWs....ACCOUNTABILITY ASPECT could have been STRONGER but, it's a PROCESS:Read More •Senate Bill 24, which creates a statewide database and allows for electronic reporting to make easier mandatory reporting of child abuse. •House Bill 89, which ends the DARE Fund, supported by the sale of DARE license plates. Any remaining funds will be given to the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency to award grants to child advocacy centers. •House Bill 316, which establishes the Child Advocacy Center Advisory Committee that will approve and distribute grants to child advocacy centers and multidisciplinary investigative teams.

GM Recall Survivors April 13, 2014 at 01:58 pm
Let's hold GM accountable for their actions. Please, please sign this petition. If you or I injuredRead More or killed another human being, we would be held accountable and rightly so. So should GM be held to a different standard. Frankly my friends, GM knew about this in 2001. No one had to die. They looked at it again a few months before our Amber died in 2005. Again they did nothing. And again in 2006 and 2007. Never have I seen a corporation act with such malice.
