I work for a company that sells merchandise to Walmart. They are a ruthless company. The sad thingRead More is most companies must sell to them to survive, so they really have you held hostage. They can do anything that they want and get away with it unless, you are willing to lose millions in business. We also deal with Costco and sell them about the same amount of merchandise each year and they are a pleasure to do business with. They hardly ever have an issue, while Walmart always does. This is why a lot of people will not shop at Walmart. I will never set foot in one of their stores.

When you get pulled over by the Police just give them you're license,registration, & insuranceRead More card. DO NOT volunteer any information!!!! If she just kept her mouth shut & took the ticket she would not be in any trouble. You have a right to remain to be silent. So don't say a damn word. No good deed ever goes Unpunished.

Don't get off subject with Comprehensions, The Constitution has Gun Rights and has ManyRead More interpretations On The true meaning and Definitions of Firer Arms, Be very Careful of what your Interpretations Are, Remember The Times when it was composed, Muzzle Loading. Black Powder, Single Shot, Weapons ( GUNS ) Think of how fast The laws Moved , and Punished. There were no States no Home Rule No Federal Government, Most was Lawless, shot first ask questions latter. Many changes took place since then, BUT we still wave the Original Constitution, and with amendments, Most of it still works and The Supreme Court has Made Amendments to fit in Modern Times. When will they define What Guns are Covered or The Meaning Of The Right to Bear Arms That is not unimaginable, But Unworkable. As I wright this a Jersey City Cop is Killed By a LEAGL GUN I put some spin on it but its True.
Tom Maras July 13, 2014 at 12:51 pm
How and by whom was the cop killed? Was it ' in the if duty'? The Federal government should be theRead More one controlling carry permirs, under strick but reasonable standards. That way lawful citizens could travel from state to state, without fear of prosecution for carrying a concealed weapon. P.S. A worker on the NJ Turnpike maintenance department was just killed the other day, on the job, by a legal driver, driving a legal vechile. Want to beat which of the two deaths gets the most publicity and which public workers take more time off to mourn? In both cases, my sympathies and prayers to their respective families and friends.

Within 24 hours Christie will have a "photo opp" at Sleaze-side to announce more money forRead More boardwalk businesses, but none for homeowners still waiting 20 months after Supertstorm Sandy.

George Murphy June 30, 2014 at 05:47 am
Well, let's try again. John flagged me. He likes to throw race into it. Patch had not mentionedRead More race. It is unquestionably a drug-related incident, but $RRHM$ did make a remark about white boys, which is unproven, hence, inaccurate and, not tasteful.

So on top of being a clueless clown who spreads rumors, you can't even spell. By the way, how isRead More the neighborhood militia watch you have going on? You know the one where you posted on the watercooler that you put together? The one the police know nothing about and when brought to their attention, laughed when it was mentioned you were the one who was organizing this. But you're also the moron who says he carries a knife on him at all times, in some sort of attempt to act tough, not "tuff" as you spelled it, which must speak greatly of the lack of education you had in life. And before you go bragging about attempting to know of a police investigation, throwing around so and so was a drug dealer. Lets not throw stones there pal, as you have openly bragged about strip clubs that you've worked at, which are and always have been havens for drug use. So calm down there moron. And if you're gonna claim to know friends, name them. If not, that's libel you are committing right now. But I would think anyone that would sue you wouldn't get much out of you, maybe a few sleeveless t-shirts, a 6 pack of bud light, and your little pocket knife you carry. So please, drop the wannabe know it all tough guy act. Its very unbecoming of a former strip club jizz mopper.
Us against each other? July 1, 2014 at 11:44 pm
Reading some of these posts is heartbreaking. Going after one another does absolutely nothing, itRead More won't bring this kid back, it won't heal his family, and when we start pointing fingers at one another's literary shortcomings, previous employment etc etc.. It just draws a line that proves nothing more then the other trying to one up the other. For what? At the end of the day, like a lot of people I have neighbors that are great and some that kinda suck , but regardless of background, social status, monetary accomplishments, I wouldn't hesitate to help in any way I could ( that may or may not be reciprocated) but it is what it is.. . When there's a sketchy car in the area, when 2 guys tried to walk into my house 6 years ago, I went to other neighbors, as many as would listen and let them know the dealing asked they tell their friends to be alert as well. I went to the police and made a report. I can't imagine any of us wants to see another hurt over a difference of opinion, so let's try to keep focused more on working together to support the albeit limited & simple facts that can be agreed upon. We all pay taxes, we all work really hard for our homes and the lives we try to enjoy. Some have kids , or elderly parents in the neighboring towns, which makes us all neighbors. Each and every one of us holds a responsibility to take a step back ( whenever possible- we all have crap-ass days when one more thing could send us over the edge) but that's what community is really about no?

It is so terrible what happened to Maggie McDonnell. However because of her tragic death, truckRead More drivers who cause similiar accidents will now face some real serious punishments.

Thank goodness this construction official decided to get involved. He could have turned his back butRead More he didn't. Glad they are out of this horrible situation. The ba!!s to come forward and say yes they are our dogs when its obvious what they were used for. This proves that the punishment for animal abuse is not severe enough! I hope there is no legal loophole these scumbags can use to get the dogs back. To hurt and animal is tragic and a testament to what a disgusting excuse of a human being you are! May these 3 men and anyone else who was aware of this and did nothing have bad karma and bad things happen to them for the rest of their lives!
Mia Goturman June 23, 2014 at 04:27 pm
It's so funny how the media can sensationalize a story. One sick dog and "All" dogs wereRead More emaciated ? The owners were guilty of having too many dogs... and for the record the emaciated dog was just found by the owners of which they were trying to save... as of today she is in good health. Did anyone stop to think the reason they were claimed was because they are NOT fighting dogs..... Oh yeah let me think... We had a downpour in Orange that day. Hence three dogs showed in the mud. Winter just ended there was not grass. The others were kept in houses............Ask the Humane Society or the person that did this broadcast what the Humane Society said about these dogs? Ask them if they were in fact being treated poorly, did these dogs have fleas or ticks..... Why did a couple of dogs need to go on a diet because they were so well fed ? Things are not always what they seem It is the media's job to feed you bull shit. Why did the Orange County officer inform the owners that the dogs were ok in their faces but as they turned their back he wanted 5 minutes of fame and gave this bull shit report. Steroids ???? but the bottle was left behind not taken for evidence ? or was it because it was actually vitamins being fed to the dogs? PPl don't believe the hype.
Lisa June 25, 2014 at 01:30 pm
If the picture of the black dog (which accompanied the article) is a true photo of one of the dogsRead More in question, I'd ask, "why such a big heavy duty chain? THAT IS NOT the type of chain you keep on a family pet, nor is it the type of chain you would put on a found dog!! Thats the type of chain you use to tow a 2000 lb car! If the dog was dangerous (which I would assume, from the size of the chain he is on) then animal control should be called to take it in.
