KKK dwindling to less than10,000 members? Not just renaming themselves the Tea Party.
Rick Langley April 24, 2014 at 12:02 pm
@Gerson Goldstein You can say God in school, just like the Klan can say what they wish. SchoolsRead More can't force God on kids. You don't seem to understand the 1st Amendment.

KKK breaks into a few homes and then comes to the rescue. An age old strategy.

"bg robbins" -- Yes, that "someone" was YOU -- on "April 24, 2014 at 08:42Read More am" to be exact, you dragged an "ethnic minority group" into this discussion (which has nothing to do with race), piling on as much white guilt as you could. (Unless you remove your comment, it can still be seen.) Self-pitying loser.

I don't disagree with you that we're becoming less and less a free country but it's wrong to blameRead More democrats alone. It wasn't dems alone that passed the patriot act. It hasn't been dems alone that have been re-uping it since it was passed the first time. On how bad Hillary will be as a president. Every president is bad in some ways. Reagan raised taxes more than a dozen times. Bush took us to war on two fronts with no way to pay for it. Clinton signed DOMA and DADT. Obama gave away the farm in order to get the Affordable Care Act passed. Papa Bush said that atheists shouldn't be considered Americans. Sure Hillary will be a bad president in some ways.... they are all bad in some way. I can tell you this much though, any president is going to be a worse president when the publicly stated goal of the opposition is to obstruct that president at any and all opportunities. The dems did it to Bush. The republican'ts are doing it to Obama. It's like Palestine and Israel, they'll fight to the death out of spite and habit, neither one of them knowing which one threw the first punch and not caring because winning is the only goal. What America needs are citizens that go into government for the good of the country instead of the good of their party.
Michael Hipp April 24, 2014 at 12:03 pm
Oh, one last point on your last post B. Dub. "Hillary presidency combined with a DemocraticRead More Congress." Ain't gonna happen. Republicant's have gerrymandered the states to absolute death. They have the House for the foreseeable future and they have a good chance at getting the Senate. I can't guarantee you who's going to win in 2016 but I can very well guarantee you that no one party will take executive and legislative branches, both.

this "to me" is not funny, the swat teams are used for serious issues, hostage taking,Read More etc. to have a swat team called to a home behind a video game is stupid, these swat members are trained to save lives, etc. to be called to a home behind a video game is not funny, what happens if a REAL call comes in and swat is needed there, I hope they catch the idiot that called swat and he gets what he/she deserves

This is a wonderful event for children who deserve to be treated with respect. I had to be in anRead More orphanage for a short period of time after I lost my family when I was a year old, then I was adopted into a fine home. My mother took in foster children who to this day I consider my sister and brother, Rose and Luke. They had a fine home there with me and foster parents who owned a business and real estate. We all had a good Christian upbringing with good family values. We were taught to do unto others as you would have them do unto you. To treat people with respect and kindness was our upbringing. I think this is a wonderful event and I want to thank the community here for the warm and friendly reception you gave to me and my son when we moved here just a couple of years ago. I will never forget you and the way you made us feel welcomed in this community. Be kind to these children and steer them in the right direction with kindness and love, otherwise they will feel they want to get revenge upon the world. They need your kindness and this event here is in the right direction.

Princess, id like to just remind parents to not turn their backs or the scum who watch out forRead More children to use them for their crimes will take advantage. We have personally experienced horrific crimes against our child regarding drugs and alcohol from faces you would definitely recognize around the pier and I WILL NOT tolerate contribution to the delinquency of minors or local parents protecting these crimes as also happened right next to the lifeguard tower. All these events are well and good but the trash needs to be taken out of IB!!! We won't move, as scum live everywhere, so instead we can move the filth who prey on children. I know 2 of the people who solicited and used my son for drug trafficking but no one cares. When I find out the rest I will own them. We will be quite and live in peace and be the best kindest most charitable neighbors you'd ever want till you assault my child and neighbors rally to defend lawlessness and criminals. So parents be careful.

@Charles Taite - As one of the commentators responding to and to whom Black Panther of PoetryRead More responded I happen to agree with you. I don't know whether Patch removed him or whether he did so himself. I for one did not flag any of his comments as offensive regardless of my personal dislike of some of the comments he made. If Patch did so shame on Patch. P.S. As much as I have issues with what he wrote he is no where close to the KKK for bigotry or racist beliefs or talk but your point is well taken.

Was coming off the Strand and looked over at the property (don't do it often) --- never reallyRead More realized how many IB residents will be displaced by this project ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ If this Trailer Park is anything like the one by my place it is full of low income and seniors who have no "voice at city hall" --- hopefully someone will step forward to speak for them before it is too late ...
Dakota Cole April 23, 2014 at 08:16 am
Jon- this RV park is not intended for long use. There are no residents of IB living there. TheRead More one across the street has locals living there. Bernardo Shores is on the North side of the street...........Tony, what condo projects were failures in IB, just curious. Also, this is a private venture, which means the owners of the property are doing the project. They do have a right to build what they feel is best for their dollar, don't they?
Tony Leombruno April 23, 2014 at 08:29 am
Check the condos (oh, apartments now) behind the Mc Donald's on Palm. Check the condos (againRead More apartments now) just north off Seacoast near the pier. Private ventures are fine when they meet the needs of residents. Recently the local papers have carried all the problems of insufficient water, lack of more business dollars (by-the-way we are talking about a business......RV resort for adults. These people come from all over with their expensive motorhomes and spend their $$$$ in IB) etc. The business property across Palm has been under construction for a few years. Have any bonafide surveys been done as to what the taax paying residents think would be a wise investment for IB. Maybe the new hotel on Seacoast can help with that.
Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.

"Agreements or addenda" are not part of the Common Core. Again, if states are doing theirRead More own thing by adding stuff or agreeing to do something different, it isn't Common Core.

If it's on the internet it must be true? A small group of parents make up some "facts" andRead More post it on random news sites. So it must be true?

FOR THOSE WHO LIKE AMAZON PRIME OVER NETFLIX: Here's an interesting article from today (23 Apr 2014)Read More about how Amazon Prime just got HBO to stream at least some of its older content, plus "HBO GO," to Amazon's new Fire TV box, thereby making NetFlix upset because NetFlix (nor any other streaming service, including HULU) has never been able to get any HBO content; and so Amazon has scored a real coup!

Sorry, Autistic boy, but there are a multitude of crimes here. These so called 'friends' abused youRead More terribly ~ called 'bullying', & that alone cannot be tolerated. Then, there is animal cruelty involved, another terrible crime, plus, harassment of all kinds, leudness, & who knows what else.

I agree with B. Dub 100%! How was this kid able to scale a fence and just walk right over to theRead More plane? TSA: for all the harassing you do in the terminal...you ain't all that!! As far as the kid being a runaway..maybe he does face some serious abuse issues at home. He's damn lucky to be alive. But, I raised three boys, and a 16 year old boy can runaway for any collage of reasons. My kids never ran away but, I'm wondering if the fact that the plane was going to HAWAII has anything to do with it. It sounds a little compulsive to me. CPA need good follow up on this. Thank you lucky stars kid!
