I just checked the banned list and although the limit is 7 letters, which means some would have toRead More be shortened, there is nothing on the list that looks anything like Christian, Jewish, Islamic, or otherwise. So at the moment they appear to be allowed. However, Jew is banned, Jesus, God, and Mohammed are not. Jihad and KKK are banned. consistent it is not.

Am I the only one who has a problem with the statement that "celebrating Easter is aRead More tradition that predates Christianity"? If Easter itself is the celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus, how could the celebration "predate Christianity"? For the record, there is no word in the Bible which translates as "Easter" - nor is there any record that early Christians observed such a holiday. The word is an anglicization of the ancient name of the Pagan Goddess of fertility "Ishtar" ("Astarte" in the Greek). This goddess was venerated each year by celebrations of the fertility inherent in Spring, and symbolized with fertility icons such as eggs and rabbits. Since the central tenet of Biblical Judeo-Christianity is the repudiation of Paganism and its multiple deities - the proclamation that there is only one God - it is, at the very least, antithetical to give to the remembrance of its chief character the name of one of the deities of Paganism - wouldn't you say?

The best way to boil eggs for taste and minimal to zero cracks/fractures: 1) bring eggs to roomRead More temperature 2) bring a large pot of salted water to boil 3) when water boils, turn off heat and lower eggs into water (a hand held mesh strainer is great) 4) put tight fitting lid on pot 5) set timer for 17 minutes **a cast iron pot is great because it will hold the heat for longer

I own a small business in Woodridge IL. The amount of credit card fraud has here has increased tenRead More fold over last year. I have to tell you that the card owner doesn't get burned, the card issuer don't either, nor does the company you hire to process and approve the cards. It's the local merchant where the card was used. Online ordering is the worst. The big banks say you didn't swipe a card, so you're liable, even though it was approved by that same bank at the time of purchase. If this keeps up, I'll have to go backwards in time and shut down online ordering. So much for a cashless society.

I think I will go back to using checks at stores and cash at gas stations. I found a gas station inRead More Eagle Rock that gives a discount for using cash and generally buy my gas there. Not as convenient as using a debit card but I had to cancel my card after using it at Target right before Christmas. What a hassle.
cookiepro2 April 19, 2014 at 03:28 pm
I've started using cash more in the past year for grocery and gas. It's simplified bill paying,Read More reducing the number of credit card receipts that need to be reconciled with statements! Though I still like the 5% discount from using my Target card and the cash back bonus from Discover. Anyway gotta have a good reason now for using my credit cards, either buying online (necessity then) or some reward incentive.

The death penalty certainly cuts down on the record number of incarcerations in America. Enough ofRead More this liberal crap on humane punishment.

California unemployment up .1 pct as reported today. Let them move and if the pepper supplierRead More doesn't survive so be it. Harsh yes!! Remember that this company is now under the control of the regulators of the AMQD and guess what they are a power unto themselves. CA is bleeding business. But hey, you elect who you do, you are required to suffer the consequences. So if the workers voted for the folks now in Sacramento, then they are also part of the problem. Yep, it will hurt them a lot more than the owner moving.
Don April 18, 2014 at 10:34 am
@Debbie, mostly assumptions. The pepper supplier the job loss is 50 minimum wage line jobs. I'dRead More also check their legal status, then you'll know if he took jobs from legal residents I'm not being crass both sides decided to arrogantly say "mine's bigger". Now that they've exposed themselves both sides want us to feel sorry for them. Let the cards fall the way they fall and then insist that the lesson be implemented for future issues. If you really want to have empathy, why don't you evaluate the overall plans of the various City governments that pick and choose the winners by tax abatements. Then have empathy for that group that is currently not part of the chosen few.
Ziegler April 18, 2014 at 05:07 pm
There are implements that could be attached in the plant that would have prevented the discomfortRead More and possible injury to others. The owner did not put thos things in place in order to protect others. The City did the right thing by clamping down on his irresponsibility. In the long run it will cost the owner less to add the necessary instrumentation than to move to a different location. There is an old saying; "You have the right to swing your arms as high and as far as you want, until it hits my nose."
WCSC screen grab shows charges against worker.

HF the charges were dropped. There is a problem because and I quote from the Patch"Lewis saysRead More he never noticed "No Free Re-Fill" signs and admits he had refilled his drink without paying on other occasions" and "On-site construction worker Chris Lewis told WCSC News he didn't know refills at the VA Medical Center in downtown Charleston weren't free."Where did you read that he knew he had to pay for it? No where in the article does he said he knew it.

If this guy wants free drinks, it's none of your business, and non of the business of that nosey cop neither. You people don't get it, it's flat out entrapment by having the soda available. What's next, you expect me not to use my dead sister's handicap placard too?

I support Marianne Williamson because she reflects my values. I want my country back. I want my kidsRead More and grandkids to have the same opportunities that I had and that my parents had, but they don't and it's getting worse daily. SCOTUS and the Oligarchs have gutted citizen's basic rights. The legislature is creating circumstances which harm middle America and the poor. We the people need to regain control of our country. The only way we can do this is to put new people, with an agenda for the people, in power. I understand the skepticism, because politicians are not us and can't be trusted. They lie and do what's right for their backers and themselves. This is exactly why I'm supporting Marianne Williamson, because she is not that politician. She truly cares about the travesties occurring in our country and has chosen to focus her energy on this election. One which could put her in Washington, to represent us as an independent spirit and a force of power, to fight against the status quo. Because celebrities know and admire her, isn't a negative, it means they support her views also. Some are willing to produce and/or perform in an event - a way for her to raise money for a her campaign. Her war chest consists of $2600 maximum contribution per person. She will not take the big money because she wants to make this a people's campaign. She doesn't have the money of a Ted Lieu nor Wendy Greuel, but she has much more to offer than either of them will ever have, a no-strings attached, rational look at our country's modus operendi. Most of all, she has love in her heart, for all of us, which empowers her to stand up and for fight for us. That's why I'm going to the polls on June 3rd and casting my vote for Marianne Williamson to represent me in Washington. No, I'm not attached to her campaign. I just believe that if we keep sending the same people to represent us - how can we expect anything to change. PLEASE VOTE on JUNE 3rd. Have a voice in your government. It's more powerful than any amount of money... it's the only true power we have.

The efficacy of members of the female persuasion in California politics best and very accuratelyRead More analyzed by Bert Prelutsky of LA TIMES below: (LET'S NOT ADD TO THE PROBLEM) "Frankly, I don't know what it is about California, but we seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office. I'm not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine, even comes close. When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington, we're Number One. There's no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, and Nancy Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on 'Macbeth'. The four of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab. You don't know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words."

We need bomb-sniffing police dogs or military dogs. We also need to make the FBI accountable forRead More their failure to follow up on Russian warnings that Tamerlan Tsarnaeyev was being radicalized. The real jihadist in the family was the Tsarnaeyev's brothers' mother. The Russians knew that but didn't send the video proving it to the FBI. Even so, they told the FBI enough that they should have been on their trail, and the FBI blew it. And why weren't they on top of the former Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan who shot to death three non-Jews in an anti-semitic attempt to kill Jews in Overland Park? Why do we allow so much surveillance of citizens when the results are so disappointing? It's not like the FBI is getting the job done. They miss a lot of really big, obvious targets.
