If a convicted criminal has no remorse or self pity for crimes committed, and is verballyRead More disrespectful to Judge & Court. He deserves whatever sentencing the Judge deems necessary and whatever comments are made by Judge are not without merit or warrant!!! "Your MOUTH can get you KILLED!!!!!

How do you expect us to answer the question when the author of this article did not tell the wholeRead More story? What was the judge responding to when he said that to her? Was she acting up in the courtroom, did she speak out of line in court, or was he referring to the crime that she committed? This "journalist" needs to go to journalism school.

This is my favorite part of the whole story "The Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center isRead More fortunate to have a highly trained Federal police force to ensure the safety of our patients, visitors and employees." Apparently refilling a cup is extremely unsafe and therefore everyone needs to be protected from that violent criminal. Give me a break! I'm sure the hospital is ripping people off left and right. Give free refills and get over it.
John Boy April 17, 2014 at 05:21 pm
"Highly Trained" Really!

If refills are not free, then do not make people pour their own drinks. I have never been in a placeRead More where you pour your own drinks and pay for the privilege each time. I might not have noticed the signs either because when I am hungry and tired, I don't expect to have to read directions at a self serve drink fountain.

Lorelei Shark April 16, 2014 at 08:44 am
I support Marianne Williamson because she reflects my values. I want my country back. I want myRead More kids 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.
Emily Piemonte April 16, 2014 at 12:36 pm

Laudable goals, wrong solutions. Money is the root of much good as well as evil. "Child povertyRead More "is best addressed by preventing people who are unable to take care of their children... , from having children. Free, voluntary mass tubal ligation and vasectomies will go a long way to relieve misery, in this as well as 3rd world countries. "Open space, traffic relief and climactic changes" ??? ... again keep the population increase down. Less SUV's , and waste,less consumption, less problems, less pollution. Special interests? Whose interests are not special , people? Mine are and yours of course are not! MONEY acquired honestly reflects achievement and by enlarge it is and is usually left to all of us to enjoy by endowments like Huntington, Getty, Rockefeller, Ford, Carnegie, Guggenheim, Norton Simon, Disney, and numerous others. as even Broad. What have the homeless people done for you lately?

The Clinton's wish they were as rich as the 2% I speak of. And Hillary is very Ego driven.

Your naïveté is laughable. You mean the same "old boy betwork" that gave theRead More Clintons millions. Lets not forget about the Goldman Sachs speaking fees either.

I feel bad for the good people that will loose their jobs. The people who should loose their job isRead More the leaders of the company that have made decisions that have caused SCE rates to be one of the highest in the country. Not long ago SCE had one of the lowest rates. There is so much waste on new SCE programs that cost millions of dollars that do nothing except help with someone's presentation.

Let's see now. LA City starts new trash program which will kill some small business and certainlyRead More result in layoffs. Now SCE going to be laying off 900 plus. Now looking too good there, SoCal.
OldTimer April 16, 2014 at 08:34 am
Well, this is what they call 'progress', folks. Think about it. Not long ago they installed theRead More 'smart meters', right? Well, with 'smart meters' you don't need meter readers, do you? So this has nothing at all to do with democrats or republicans. Let's stop going there. It's about cutting costs with technology. Remember when garbage trucks were 2 man units? I do. Those were back the days when the men manually hoisted the cans and dumped the garbage in the trucks. Well, now the trashing dumping is automated and only a driver is needed. Sorry, folks. That's called 'progress', like it or not. Those layed off garbage men and meter readers need to reinvent themselves and find other work in another industry. But let's not make this political. That's so absurd.

Yes folks. Keep paying your taxes and voting. You can see how well that formula has worked for usRead More in the past. I might even toss in a tip for Uncle Sam this year and ask him to apply it to more foreign aid. I heard that Ukraine needs some bailout money. Either that or give it to a to a too big to fail bank so that they can pay this year's executive bonuses. Six of one, half dozen of the other.
