Screen grab from WCSC shows charges against worker.
John A. Kauth April 18, 2014 at 06:22 pm
On the face of it this is absolutely ridiculous. However it does mention in the article that theRead More construction worker became abusive with the officer. It's the old saying that you attract more bees with sugar rather that vinegar. In many situations the officer has a choice of doing nothing, issue a warning or write out the full ticket. In this case the behavior of the construction worker may have determined the officer's choice. I do hope the ticket is reduced or thrown out when this gets to court. With that said who is the knucklehead that made the decision not to allow free refills? I can not think of a single instance of a self serve soda fountain that does not allow free refills while you are on the premises. Can you imagine McDonalds putting up such a sign not allowing free refills? Sound like a very poorly run facility.

Another non profit organization started on 30 Dec 2012. A new political party representinf MiliraryRead More Veterans and the people because the current political parties both have disregarded and shown disdain for American service men. Or as Henry Kissinger adviser to 7 presidents said "Military men are dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy." https://www.facebook.com/VPAofSC

If people knew and UNDERSTOOD the history of Hemp and Marijuana it would be legal todaly. In 1932Read More Hemp was the USA's largest export. It provided OIL for lubrication of machinery ans was an easily renewable resource. It provided natural medicines that are still in use today but sold for MEGA BUCKS by the drug industry. Cigarettes in used marijuana as an ingredient specifically for the calming effect. Marijuana eaten or smoked raises the body PH which prevents cancer and fights it. Marijuana fights glaucoma and has many other medical benefits. Yet it was MADE ILLEGAL by the pharmaceutical and oil industries so they could force and sell their products. That in itself is a criminal activity.

re: Why should I [5] have to pay for in vitro fertilization and abortions any plan? the same reasonRead More americans have to pay for veteran's benefits: it's the right thing to do...specific to ACA it helps provide provides coverage for 30-40M pre ACA uninsured folks...who 5-etal would otherwise pay for ER coverage...5-etal suffer from myopia... ~~not sure in vitro fertilization and abortions are covered under ACA... ~~ohand 5 probably doesn't have a child with disabilities...soo guess he would ask why should he pay for support services...ie, let them pull themselves up by boot straps the dont have... ~~good old christian/families values of the 5-etals... BTW/FYI USA is #1 in cost and 38th in health care quality...those countries ranked above USA in quality all have universal health...evil socialized medicine...

This is a crime against all Americans criminally circumventing the Constitution. Just how manyRead More "terrorists" have been "thwarted" so far? NONE ZERO NADA ZIP ZILCH. Get it? How many people have circumvented TSA Screening? 14 that I have heard of and many more who were not caught later. The boy a couple weeks ago is a perfect example of ineffective unnecessary Federal workers.

It is most likely from an added false protein or from excess arsenic used in the feed of theRead More chickens that the "jerky" is derived from. The point here is just like before China has been responsible for sending low quality toxic products to America. They have done it with every product forced on Americans by Elite criminals in their never ending quest for greed based wealth. This also once again exemplifies the failure of the FDA. We watch "drug" commercials where they are now listings tens of side effects including death and we are supposed to think it is OK? There are no such things as side effects THOSE ARE EFFECTS! Is death a "side effect" of drunken driving? Are the deaths of innocents a "side effect" of drone strikes? Wake up people!

It should be noted that products "Made In America" may be made here, but with raw materialRead More imported from China. Devious? Yes. Illegal? Unfortunately not. Dogswell is made with ingredients imported from China, but isn't the only one. Others that look American but not include Waggin Train and Milo's. There are several others, and ALL have been the subject of at least one recall.
