This guy looks like he got sandblasted by a glazier. I agree with Lenny Kravitz.

Hey Dr. Wintemute, I hate to ruin your crusade but Chicago has one of the strictest set of gun lawsRead More in the nation and it is the gun violence murder capital of the United States! They had another blood bath there last weekend. There are over 300 million guns (not including police and military) in our country. What are you going to do, Doctor? Ban them all. By doing so the law abiding citizen would turn their guns in and the criminals would keep theirs, thereby setting the good citizens up for slaughter. You need to think through your crusade before you spend a million buck on a futile mission. We are a nation of guns. We always have been, Doctor. You won't change that. The barn door is open and all the horses already ran away!

Wow...you guys are nuts. And I am conservative......a "kid" did something he should notRead More have. A parody doesn't harm other people like he was doing. I do not think anyone would want this "kid" to do it to them and their family. Teach the young man right from wrong w/ the proper punishment.....and chill out people....geeezzzz.....

Bob,I don't where you come from maybe russia, Iran I know the leader over there did the same thingRead More to his people. We are not the mayor or police chief, don't take the job if you can't take what comes with it. I am sure the Mayor said to the incumbent, I can do this job better then you, trust me vote for me, not everybody! the kid did not trust him saw who he really was. the kid is a hero, he brought the true colors of the mayor out, and the kid was wright. Now he got to go. and the police chief with him.

Bob... If someone said I was smoking pot with a prostitute I would have to sue them for defamation.Read More That is the proper punishment. And that is what we are trying to explain to you. He didn't yell fire in a crowded theater... that would have the potential to harm other people. They mayor, judges, and police were overzealous at least, or acted criminally at worst. I can't imagine how you think it's acceptable for the police to raid someone's house over a satirical twitter account... this is not Nazi Germany.

Democrats and Republicans one and the same on the county council. Both = UN Agenda. More GovernmentRead More control to push everyone where they want to place them.Time for Democrats to wake up to the fact that their heart to really help people have turned into only helping the elite and time for the Republicans to wake up to the fact that they are also only helping the elite.

I'm a bit confused by this, in that internet service providers already have tiered service, as farRead More as bandwidth goes. If I want a fast enough data stream to support streaming video, I have to pay more than if I'm content with turning pages. So, if this isn't a new thing regarding speed, it must be about controlling content. This boils the matter down to two things: favoritism and censorship. Neither is consistent with the First Amendment or living in a free and open society.

Instead of praying for more extended unemployment benefits (and exactly how much longer is itRead More going to take these folks to find a job?), wouldn't it be better to pray for a job? Is it even proper to pray for extended benefits? For example, I have heard some clergy say that if, for instance, you turned on to your street and saw smoke and fire engines, it would be human nature to pray it was not your house. But inasmuch as that would mean asking God for someone else's house to be on fire, that would not be a proper use of prayer. Pray that everyone is safe, but don't pray that it's someone else's house. In the same vein, these benefits are going to come out of other people's pockets, so I don't think that's a proper use of prayer.

Charles Hardy, instead of praying for a job, wouldn't it be better to pray for corporate America toRead More stop offshoring jobs to China, India and other countries? For the past 30+ years they've been sending all the well-paid, high-benefit (and yes, union) jobs overseas. And then everyone acts so surprised when people can't find jobs after 99 weeks. To ignore offshoring of jobs is to ignore the 800-pound gorilla sitting in the room.

We should be able to look to those states that have legalized marijuana, soon if not already, to seeRead More whether its benefits outweigh its risks. What's needed is a core of facts and actual experience, and these states are giving these to us. What should be clear, however, is that the current federal classification of marijuana as a schedule 1 drug should not be held up as an argument against it. It's classification was largely political and not fact based. Recall that slavery was once the law of the land. To make good decisions we need facts, not precedents. If the latter prevailed nothing would ever change.
