All of these armchair quarterbacks who bitch about crime and entitlement and taxes-not once do you hear them give thanks for the blessed lives they have been gifted enough to enjoy and can only sit in judgement of those who have not been so privileged.
Empathy and compassion to all of those who suffer injustices in life AND in death. It breaks my heart that all of these fingerpointers feel the need to be so superior and pontificate.
Gina was a victim. She didn't just play victim like many of you.

How many did Jesus kill in God's name ?
There is no deterrent to a crime of passion.
If there is such thing as an "eye for an eye" with God being the ultimate judge, how many of you "believers," in both God and the death penalty, will be subjected to that very same judgement for your lack of compassion ?

You won't mind until its you, that's the point. I had nothing to hide either. But I also did nothing to warrant pulling me over and running my identity.
Instead I wondered how many REAL bad guys were robbing places, beating people up, etc while they wasted time on my "obstructed view".
And my race had absolutely nothing to do with anything so stop with the fear nonsense.

I often go to this and have a blast as my Mom was a former parish member. But recently I was pulled over in Campbell for having a pinetree deodorizer hanging from my rear view mirror. I was let off with a warning but felt roughly handled, profiled, and shaken down.
Make no mistake. This was an attempted revenue grab. And if this is the way Campbell welcomes travelers I will gladly spend my money elsewhere and convince others similarly.

Gift it to Mother Nature(Mill Creek Park) and move on.

All you frackers wanting cheap energy must compete with countries who don't comply with free trade agreements while the soaring profits get exported out of town.
And Tim Ryan is helping ensure that only misery "trickles down".
More sickening than a well full of tainted water...

According to this University of Oklahoma study
, Air Shows rank #2 in attendance after Major League Baseball compared to all national professional "sporting" events. So few should be surprised by such traffic.
Also, the Air Force spends 35 million annually just to put on these shows largely in the name of recruiting. And each of these Thunderbirds cost somewhere around 20 million.

Government so called "regulators" like the EPA, USDA, US Forest Service are the obvious "grease fittings" where business interests gain undue access.
I am certainly NOT calling for less regulation. But in this era where whistleblowers are criminalized, we need legitimate citizen involvement to end the corruption.
Unfortunately, when this happens, business interests use deep pocket tactics to marginalize anyone who gets in the way of profits regardless of whether or not it is due to earthquakes, water contamination, or other harm being done by said corporate interests.
If you don't believe an antifracker in the Valley, just ask a fisherman in the Gulf or a native in Alaska near the Valdez mess.
Business for business sake...
