People get angry at this but it's OK for 100 illegals to gather at storefronts on Horseblock Road.

FREE SPEECH, our 1st AMENDMENT RIGHT is a Constitutional right earned by our Fore Fathers and ForeRead More Mothers and relinquished to All Americans. To bad Benicia Patch doesn't feel this way. I'M APPALLED AT HOW THEY CENSORED and BANNED THE BLACK PANTHER OF POETRY FROM SPEAKING ON THIS RAG!!! "If the specter of whistle-bearing block captains roaming the streets dressed in (reflective?) white sheets is a cure worse than the illness, residents have little recourse. Courts have consistently recognized the KKK’s right to free speech".
Saber Walsh April 24, 2014 at 01:41 pm
I think this is an obvious false flag. We have an entire ideologically-driven group trying to takeRead More over our government and that is trying to spur ANY reason and ANY evidence, real or not, that there is a "racial divide" in our country. This is total BS.

Oh, and that RIDICULOUS term the race card??? Seriously? There is no "card" just a truthRead More of a history and its repercussions that some would like to rewrite with ridiculous terms like that. More marketing. It is important never to forget these things, our shared history. It is so powerful, perverse and singular that it cannot be reduced to a "card".

Dave, and in case you come back with...well, Trayvon Martin was a black kid acting suspiciously andRead More was that he attacked Zimmerman, there are many other cases where "law-abiding" citizens with concealed carry permits have killed truly law-abiding innocent people. Do you remember the recent arrest of a man who fired into a vehicle of kids who were playing their music too loud? Do you remember the recent retired police officer who shot and killed the movie-goer in front of him because the movie-goer had just used a cell phone (at the beginning of the movie)? Law-abiding citizens quickly turn into MURDERED when empowered by their concealed 9mm, 45, 38, etc.
Michael Hipp April 24, 2014 at 01:30 pm
Great comments Frank. It's absurd for anybody to say that "law abiding" people with gunRead More permits don't act irresponsibly with those guns..... as you so perfectly pointed out. Dude who is disagreeing with you could win the argument by saying that they were law abiding 100% of the time, up until the moment when they weren't law abiding.... but a debate won by semantics is not a win at all. Law abiding straight white men will shoot to death innocent law abiding Georgia residents, because of this law being passed that allows guns in bars.
Bridgett Milam-Crooks April 24, 2014 at 01:51 pm
All credibility was lost on the stupidity and racial ignorance of the following phrase, "lawRead More abiding straight white men". That doesnt even come close to describing the majority of people overcrowding our jails, does it?

Amy RLB April 24, 2014 at 01:19 pm
When asked exactly what she has accomplished during her stint as a carpetbagger Senator & ourRead More least "carbon neutral" Secretary of State, Madame Clinton responded "what difference, at this point, does it make?" That was after she was fired from the Watergate investigation for lying, and after she attacked every woman who was sexually assaulted by her philandering husband, and after she whispered into Sean Smith's & Ty Wood's parents' ears "don't worry, I'll personally make sure we arrest the man responsible for that despicable video." I'm sure I'll be called a "war on women" hating misogynist by the Libiots too enraged to notice I'm a woman & who are so intellectually dishonest they refuse to admit the real misogynist is Bill CLinton. But hey, as long as the boot licking Main Stream Media still drools over Killary, what difference does it make?
Michael Hipp April 24, 2014 at 01:34 pm
Hey Amy RLB, whatever that means, why are you talking about all .. what did you call them.....Read More libiots..... when there is only one person in this entire discussion that called anybody a woman hater? Do you have a problem with dealing with this single discussion thread, must you broaden the discussion to everybody? All libiots aren't here to defend themselves. The one person that call you republicant's woman haters is here and can defend their remarks. Just a thought.

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
John Strother April 24, 2014 at 08:38 am
with caller ID they should be able to point to the caller. Sorry but an out of state telephoneRead More number should be a tip off.
Eddie April 24, 2014 at 08:52 am
The caller used Skype, via the Internet, and will probably never be found if he took certainRead More precautions unless he's running his mouth about this prank.

FREE SPEECH, our 1st AMENDMENT RIGHT is a Constitutional right and a integral part of who we are asRead More a NATION. Earned by our Fore Fathers and Fore Mothers and relinquished to All Americans. To bad Benicia Patch doesn't feel this way. I'M APPALLED AT HOW THEY CENSORED and BANNED THE BLACK PANTHER OF POETRY FROM SPEAKING ON THIS RAG!!! They've even taken down his profile; even the KKK deserve the RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH in AMERICA.. SHAME ON BENICIA PATCH(how un-AMERICAN)................."If the specter of whistle-bearing block captains roaming the streets dressed in (reflective?) white sheets is a cure worse than the illness, residents have little recourse.

I've already asked the questions Chris P. Go back up and read them and respond in whatever mannerRead More you care to. I can guarantee that I won't feign offense if you use the word piddly.... or any word really, for you see, I grew up gay in the southern part of America and had to live with people who agree with you, beating me up for who I am, firing me for who I am, denying me service for who I am and calling me every single derogatory name in the book; every single one of which is more offensive than piddly.
jMichael April 24, 2014 at 12:50 pm
@Michael Hipp: Michael. I am with you 100% on this. Gays have, for 15 Centuries, suffered the foulRead More odor of Christian opprobrium; a vile and contemptible swamp gas "justified" by an abusive reading of Scripture and fueled by the mad ravings of pulpit bigots and bible billies. These, with mortgages to pay or FOX-friends to win, would hustle sin for coin, hate for fame, and sleaze to generate the titillating headline. <> <> <>
Chris P April 24, 2014 at 01:41 pm
@ Michael Hipp 1. The same Ten commandments I referred to in my response to jMichael. 2.The rest ofRead More your questions aren't really questions, just insults. Shall I respond to you with insults as you and your friend have been? This seems to be a common theme when confonting liberals with facts. You have nothing to discuss so out come the insults. You lost the arguement before you even started. You and your freinds are suffering from a mental disorder and you should seek the services of a phsychologist for your own good.
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.

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!
