Bumped again while waiting out a light on Coldwater Road. Believe this was deliberate. I'm praying for him.
Isn't it odd that a man can be charged with "homicide due to intrauterine demise" because he killed a pregnant mom? Yet any day of the week, ... (a woman) can go and kill her own "baby" with no consequences.
Why won't (Donald) Trump just say it? Some of his supporters are "radical, right-wing terrorists." Why is he afraid to say it?
Hey, I paid into Social Security my whole life, and now I reap the benefits. I don't care if your kids or grandkids don't get it when they retire. I taught my kids to save at an early age, and now they are teaching their kids to save. They will not need the supplement if it is not there for them.
Evan Bayh is a nice guy. In Washington, he would need to support Hillary (Clinton). She is not nice.
Democratic candidate (for Indiana governor John) Gregg seems to be running on a Republican platform.
Election results, to be fair, should be the count of the people's vote only. Eliminate completely the count of delegates. We the people should elect our representatives, ... without the input or count of a "delegates" vote. They can vote once at the ballet booth, same as us — one vote per person, all persons! There should be no way to alter the peoples' choice. God help us.
It's a good thing that the athlete who wouldn't stand up for the national anthem didn't occur during World War II. He would have been ... (killed). If he doesn't appreciate our country, then boot him out. See what rights he would have in another country. We, now seem to be stretching our constitutional meaning way beyond their original intent.
If Hillary (Clinton) can't lie her way to the White House, she can cough her way there? How many women will Bill (Clinton) have sex with this time? How much furniture will she need to return to the White House this time? Her speaking skills can only fool a part of the American people. It was our safety that she gave away with her emails. ... Hillary is a joke to ISIS that puts us in even more danger.
The paper has been full of young, black men charged with murder, etc. Yet we are supposed to believe we are being prejudiced when fearing them? They walk around acting tough and trying to intimidate.
What a paradox, and a pity, that two people who have given so much of their time, talents and treasure to benefit their neighbors and our community, and are obviously good and well-meaning, cannot see their culpability in the horrors inflicted on aborted children by Planned Parenthood, whom they support.
When a white person kills a black person, Black Lives Matter. When a black person kills another black person Black Live Matter, not so much. So sad.
North Korea, Iran and Russia have all threatened U.S. planes and ships, sometimes coming dangerously close to our warships, and what does the Obama administration do? Nothing. Oh, wait, they try to employ sanctions. They (other countries) seem so very scared — oh my, not sanctions! Weak leadership, no real responses. No wonder these countries continue to harass and endanger our enlisted men and women.
For the folks out there who would like to tell someone about the dangerous situation at the (Interstate) 469 North exit ramp to U.S. 24: The phone number is 1-866-227-3555, this is the ... (Indiana Department of Transportation's Fort Wayne District office). I called on Thursday at 8:30 a.m. A nice young lady answered and took my complaint about this, and said she would let the people in charge know. Those people had the day off! I asked her why she couldn't give me an answer. Maybe if enough people call enough times something might be done before some of us folks get killed!
As a parent, I have tried numerous times to discuss my child being bullied on the bus, and he (an East Allen County Schools official) will talk in circles about nothing, completely avoiding the subject! I am so frustrated!
Indiana has laws against tailgating, the No. 1 cause of accidents and probably a high-ranking cause of road rage incidents. I wonder if the reason so few citations are written is because some of the worse offenders are the police officers themselves (especially Fort Wayne police officers). Guilt complex? I doubt it.
That $33 billion that (President) Obama ... (quietly also may have given) to Iran could have given Flint, Mich., a darn good new water filtration plant! Maybe even new water pipes all over town! Too bad he thinks more of people who wish us dead than American people being poisoned.
All the talk about Colin Kaepernick not being patriotic: Where were you when Cliven Bundy and the militia protested against the government and armed themselves. Fox News and lots of you supported them. Who committed the worst sin?
(Donald) Trump goes on "The Dr. Oz Show" and hands over his watered-down medical records. ... Keep supporting him you morons.
The North Carolina HB2 bill (House Bill 2) not only dictates who can use what restroom, but the law prevents cities and counties from passing protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity. I don't care if you're Republican or Democrat, that is just wrong in every way. Let the locals decide.
I saw a news story today where activists were protesting the use of GMOs, or Genetically Modified Organisms, such as bi-colored corn and are also against cloning, which could lead scientists to be able to custom-make organs for transplants, something which could save countless lives. Their argument often being that man should not play at being God, but ... (some people) also approve of operations to try to turn men into women and vice versa. We are already playing God. It's time to stop that kind of nonsense and start actually saving people's lives with cloning.
Hillary Clinton gets $8 million (advance) for her ... (2014) memoir ("Hard Choices"), but is unable to remember anything while under oath. Now that's interesting.
The reason a lot of people will never go to the homeless shelter or participate in AA is because these organizations shove the Bible down their throats. They say you must accept God or you will never be better. Baloney!
