KKK dwindling to less than10,000 members? Not just renaming themselves the Tea Party.
Rick Langley April 24, 2014 at 03:02 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.
J Leland April 24, 2014 at 03:15 pm
KKK breaks into a few homes and then comes to the rescue. An age old strategy.

Lefty libs can cry all they want and say "no child should be hungry" (yeah? How noble.Read More Now, how many have YOU fed lately besides your own). But the fact is that there is an undeniable link between single parent households (usually mother led) and poverty. That is not 'right wing BS' Brian. It's just a fact. Sorry. I know the truth hurts your shiny happy world view. Do all kids raised by single mothers end up poor? No. Do all kids in two-parent households stay out of poverty? No. But to sit there and deny that the single worst calamity in our society over the past 50 years (coincidentally after the 1960s flower power wave brought to you by the left) has been the explosion in single family homes as the nuclear family continues to disintegrate. Blacks have gone from 20% to 70% illegitimacy and no amount of federal dollars *I doubt paid by gjc, hence her self-righteous drivel* can hold back the social destruction this trend has caused. Hispanics and whites are well on their way to joining them so this isn't a racial thing...it's a cultural thing. Bastard children were stigmatized in the past not because they were/are bad kids, but because there was a tacit understanding among cultures that a society of fatherless children is bad for society. If you don't believe me then take a drive to Camden. The left can't have it both ways. They can't say that it's heartless and cruel to stigmatize fathering children out of wedlock (and in many cases again and again and again) and then wring their hands and moan at the inevitable societal destruction ie. children in poverty the kumbaya world they want to create comes into being and deny their responsibility for all the chaos and pain they unwittingly unleashed. And they sure can't blame "heartless right wingers" who, after watching 50 years and 4 trillion dollars of a "war on poverty" get poured down the drain think that maybe the problem is cultural and not financial?

Single parent (I was one, and provided very nicely for my family without the deadbeat's help, butRead More it was a different time), double parent, alien parent - what matters is how society responds. This is not a liberal vs conservative issue. It is an issue that involves all of us whether we want it to or not. Raising the minimum wage is a step in the right direction. I don't know of anyone who wants his/her child to starve. And, when there are 3 willing workers for every job opening (national - NJ is in worse shape), we can't sit back and blame the victims. Not a single soul among us has made 100% perfect choices for our own lives. I might not "feed" starving children personally, but we donate at least two bags of food each month to the local food bank.. Baby steps.

Michael Hipp April 24, 2014 at 02:54 pm
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 03:03 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
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.

@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.

Patch deleted my comments on an Earth Day article. All I did was recommend JunkScience.com.

Steve April 22, 2014 at 01:41 pm
The author of this story is not a journalist -- she is the director of Public Relations andRead More Communications for CentraState hospital. Patch should be more transparent in disclosing the sources of its stories -- this is sponsored PR and not a news story written by an independent, objective reporter who has verified all the facts.

Quite clearly, politicians and elected officials were excluded from this study.

Dickie also can't stand not seeing his name in the paper once a week, so he'll be "for" orRead More "against" something just for the sake of issuing a press release. Sending out a camera crew to interview him just enables him further. Forty years and counting. He's the poster child for Term Limits.

Clyde Z April 23, 2014 at 07:59 am
her hiring was a joke, I mean they said they did a background check: must not have used GoogleRead More search because they've listed her troubles before her hire at Rutgers. Not to mention that she "lied" on her application. I've had co-workers fired after a month, months and in another case years after their hire due to lies on their application. Hermann's lies could/should have been cought by simple 10th grade investigation
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.

CowDung April 24, 2014 at 12:22 pm
"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.
Millsey April 24, 2014 at 02:46 pm
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? I'm in favor of trusting the actual sources of the program over a blog that someone created because they are afraid of their kids getting a better education.

Analli Citall April 24, 2014 at 03:11 pm
Comments on these types of stories always seem to be a waste of time as I can't see any one of usRead More reading something here and changing our minds. We just want others to hear our opinions. But what I don't understand, and if someone wants to have a conversation, is why would it bother anyone to take the words out of the Pledge? How does that hurt those that believe in god? If you still want to say the Pledge with those words do you think someone will stop you? The counterargument that it isn't hurting anyone now so leave it in there is not correct. I want to know why we can't take it out?
SILENT WOLF April 24, 2014 at 03:22 pm
The question is why should they be taken out to serve only a few rather than left in to serve theRead More majority ...
