Reading about ISIS atrocities is like deja vu

Mike Mike said,

"Larry you are certainly entitled to have distain for the president because of how you percieve his policies. I happen to like the way President Obama has goverened starting with the Paycheck Fairness Act,putting an end to our torture policies,attempting to close Guantanamo Bay,instrumental in providing health care for 10 million new are just a few I can name off the top of my head. I only know of one line- in- the- sand that he shouldn't have ever made but as luck would have it, President Obama put the onus on Congress to make that call. Congress looked at the polls and decided that they would vote against bombing Syria...Meantime the administration, Syria, Iran and Russia came up with a plan to destroy ALL those chemical weapons. Yes, that's the same Iran we are in talks with to get them to abandon their nuclear weapon ambition. Iran would have never had entered those talks if they thought we were weak....It might not work, but President Obama was mocked when he said he would sit down at a table with Iran. .. He was also mocked when he said he would go into the sovereign country of Pakistan and get bin Laden if he knew he was there...This was after his drone escalation that killed a whole lot of al Qaeda leaders. Russia must have laughed at Bush/Cheney when they took Georgia without any sanctions or any retaliations...Russia has nukes so the military option is off the table unless we want more than we bargained for. Ukraine is 5,000 miles away. Why are they the sole responsibilty of the United States? Our European Allies are reluctant to impose stronger sanctions for fear they will lose their energy source. Republicans are skirting the issue. They would like to see 30,000 troops in Iraq to fight ISIS, but they know that it's unpopular, so they blame a weak president. Rick Perry said he was open to sending in ground troops to Iraq. Will the GOP committ to ground troops before the November mid-terms? I dont think so becaus it's much easier to critize than committ. The GOP has yet to admit that the invasion of Iraq was a fiasco and the reason there is still turnmoil in the Middle East. " - 6 hours, 32 minutes ago

Jack Evony said,

"Hamas is attacking. Israel is defending. Russia is invading. The Middle East is smoldering. Boko Haram is massacring. ISIS is marching and beheading. Iran and N Korea are threatening. American cities are crumbling and going bankrupt. Our southern border is dissolving. Our debt is skyrocketing. ObamaCare is falling apart. The VA is showing us how ObamaCare will work. The IRS is violating the law. Americans are hurting. Our enemies are laughing. Obama is fundraising, vacationing and playing golf. We should take it easy on him, this is his first job.

"Always entertaining to hear from you. Hey Larry, how many “Impeach Obama” and “Texas Secede” bumper stickers and mud flaps did you buy with that last farm subsidy check you received from Obama’s socialist USDA? Sounds like more of Port Lavaca’s Asian kids just went off to college and Calhoun County’s medium IQ level suffered a hit, again. " - 8 hours ago

Yorktown firefighter stabbed while trying to douse blaze

Cheri Smith said,

"Strange to most people, but some people like this guy have been in and out of jail so much, they don't know how to live in the outside world. They don't know how to work and pay bills, deal with daily struggles. I've seen it happen to other people who would rob a place to break their parole so they'd get thrown back in. Three meals a day, no bills to pay, told what to do.. They miss it. I'm so sorry to hear the firefighter had to be hurt, there were easier ways to get thrown back in jail.

Psychologist: Pepper incompetent to stand trial for beating

Mike Austin said,

"My prediction is that the driving force from all of this, will be social media......Facebook and Vicad. If history is allowed to repeat itself, more than likely, the next time he is allowed on the streets and attacks somebody, they will probably beat him to death or slice him up or blow him away. No court in the world would convict someone for taking him out, based on his history of spontaneous violence, and the fact that society can't seem to find a way to institutionalize him permanently. There is no "cure" for what he has." - 19 hours, 6 minutes ago



Woodsboro man escapes manslaughter charge in 2012 wreck

Larry Mikulec said,

""This wasn't a case where a career criminal intentionally did something very bad." From everything I have seen or read, he did "intentionally do something very bad." Does it really matter if he was a habitual offender or a first timer? It's not like he stole a pack of cigarettes, he caused the death of an innocent person through his deliberate actions. It was so bad that he then ran home and hid from it. What a piece of work! I hope the victims family files a wrongful death suit and takes this guy for everything he has.

"My goodness...it's all...it's all so CLEAR now! No one, especially you, has ever said these things before. *fights urge to glance at related stories sidebar* I guess he ISN'T a congregationalist despite going to that church for 2 decades and IS a socialist despite never advocating public or cooperative control of public property nor advancing the philosophy of dialectical materialism. One odd thing though: I don't remember getting free food despite (reluctantly) voting for him twice. Since you, *snicker*, seem to know everything, perhaps you could tell me where it went to? Free is my favorite kind of food." - 20 hours, 44 minutes ago

Kirstin Brown said,

"I believe that pepper is in a better place getting help and as for Mr.Sandoval I pray for you to get all healed...Now some of you may not be educated on the law but the aggravated assault that pepper committed doesn't carry a lot of time in fact he could have gotten a little 5 year sentence paroled out in 2 in a half..So now being in that San Antonio hospital he may have to be there longer so you see either way he will do time...Being there is like being locked up he won't be free and thats a good thing " - 1 day, 1 hour ago

Mike Mike said,

Reading about ISIS atrocities is like deja vu

Mike Mike said,

"John Schlembach, Foerster is a Ron Paulite still living in the days of the old U.S.S.R; pay no mind.....I disagree when you say we need to treat ISIS with respect because they are beyond that point....People like Larry Boyd can't hide the distain he has for President Obama by calling him weak thinking it's a reason ISIS does not respect him...Did al Qaeda respect President Bush when they crashed two airliners into the Twin Towers? America is a superpower; need I say more? ISIS is different; they want territory to govern by Sharia law." - 1 day, 2 hours ago

GOP needs to come to its senses

Mike Mike said,

" Foerster weak attempt to shift blame to the Democrats doesn't hold water....For some balance, Nancy Pelosi (when she was House Majority leader) sent 400 bills to the Senate where they went to die....There was no mention of the most-recent government shutdown which caused us $24 billion in economic output....There are 352 bills in the Senate that have not been acted on. Some of those bills are statements (repeal ACA...EPA action) ,some are sitting in committee, and some will not be introduced for fear one lone Senator will keep it from coming to the floor and yes, Harry Reid is sitting on few for political reasons just like his predecessor...The Senate did pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill last year, but the House refuses to bring it to the floor......Don't take my word for it.....http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2014/aug/06/lynn-jenkins/rep-lynn-jenkins-blames-harry-reid-do-nothing-sena/ The author is correct.Today's GOP is being run by the Tea Party, and they have no interest in governing. Compromise is a dirty word to them." - 1 day, 6 hours ago



Psychologist: Pepper incompetent to stand trial for beating

Bernie Perez said,

"This does not surprise me one bit...Pepper knew his actions that morning...It is sad to say that the law and all it stands for has failed this man...and his family they have robbed him of his life his values and his happiness,because he will never be the same or his family..That just tells our community go out and beat someone,They will lock you up and then slap you on the hand..The law has said Pepper had a mile long rap sheet..Why didn't they put him away, then no they just let him go and continue to walk the streets. I wonder if the statement would have been different,If Pepper would have hurt a City officials family member..I THINK NOT.....Well Lupe we love you and we continue to pray for you and Michelle and you family.
