who started the fire? forest fire service is having unannounced burns all over the state. did theyRead More set it? so many of those "presdribed burns" go out of control and then taxpayers are stuck paying the bills. one they set on Delaware river cost nj taxpayers millions of dollars. another one they set a firefighter was killed.

A controlled burn would not have been conducted on a day with so much wind.

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.

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.

BINGO, Aman77. You have my vote for President.
John M. April 23, 2014 at 03:47 pm
More correctly stated, these are public schools only and the list does not include private schools.
Elizabeth April 23, 2014 at 07:53 pm
That's an important distinction, John M. Thank you.

also i would add of the schools ahead of us all but one are charter magnet schools that get to pickRead More and choose their students.

There's plenty of stores and pharmacies to break in where they can wear hoodies and latex gloves andRead More won't have to worry about getting blown away or did they want sadistic pleasure terrorizing easy elderly targets?

Someone dragged it in and you went for it.
Pat Kittle April 24, 2014 at 03:55 pm
"bg robbins" -- Yes, that "someone" was YOU -- on "April 24, 2014 at 08:42Read More am" to be exact, you dragged an "ethnic minority group" into this discussion (which has nothing to do with race), piling on as much white guilt as you could. (Unless you remove your comment, it can still be seen.) Self-pitying loser.

Tom Hollman,all good points,but please,stop with the CAPS.

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.

Are you self employed? You seem to be able to manage your time to suit yourself. What field?

Yes I am. I'd rather not divulge my field on here though.

@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.
dwayne roberson April 24, 2014 at 02:17 pm
Patch deleted my comments on an Earth Day article. All I did was recommend JunkScience.com.

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