So when a women post of a nude so called "revenge porn" pic of a man, it will be dismissedRead More as a mistake of clicking the wrong button and nothing happens....

Did the girlfriend knowingly pose in the photograph?
Laurie McCabe July 22, 2014 at 12:23 pm
The law stipulates that it does NOT MATTER how the photograph is obtained once it is being used toRead More cause emotional distress. In other words, a piece-of-shit man is a piece-of-shit man.

Kinda makes you wonder just how many people have knock off there kids and pets this way.

This just proves that people are actually jealous of Justin Harris and that is why he is beingRead More attacked in the media. It is better jealously. The people of Georgia support you Justin Harris! Do not give up in the face of these lies!

Motorists receiving email noting unpaid tolls, but it's a hoax. Provided.
Patrick J July 10, 2014 at 07:30 am
Anybody can put those names in the from field. Check the headers of the email. That's a better wayRead More to verify. Bottom line, people should never respond to emails claiming non-payment. Always call to verify for sure.

Someone asked me this week to help them renew their passport. When they saw how long it would take,Read More they said they could go to a local place and get it the same day for $300. I asked the name, and she said "something Spanish." I told her it was probably a fraud and criminal. I wish I had gotten more info, but it was a place in Alexandria. I should call and ask if she got one!
Marie July 2, 2014 at 08:49 am
This is great. We get to shelter, feed, and keep healthy this guy for 12 years before we releaseRead More him. He's getting off easy. Think about how much damage this guy has caused: FAKE social security numbers - for getting government handouts???; identification cards - for VOTING illegally? There's no telling how much these fake documents have impacted us.

Too bad deportation doesn't precede incarceration. a coslly way of dealing with illegally residentRead More culprits guilty of aiding and abetting illegal immigration. Afterthought: Don't quite know what to do about similarly culpable chief executives and members of Congress.

With Obama gathering our phone info and listening to our conversations, why can't the governmentRead More find these people? Also - if people are here LEGALLY, they wouldn't have to worry about deportation threats.
Mike June 25, 2014 at 11:06 am
Marie. The government does not care. They consider them more democrat voters.

The IRS is an abusive, criminal beast; it needs to be abolished, period. Replace it with a flat tax.

Sandra, you said "Unreasonable people try to push their beliefs on to others." Aren't youRead More trying to push your beliefs onto others? A battle of ideas and beliefs, that goes back to the Garden of Eden, has always existed. Disharmony and arguments have always existed. Only God has all the Truth. That's why God, our Creator, gave us His truth by written Word so we would know the right choices to make for success and peace in life. God (not I) declares about when life begins, in Psalm 139:13-16 (New Living Translation) it says, "You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous -- how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book, in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed." God says life begins at the moment of conception. So I choose to believe what God says. God has a good plan laid out for each person conceived, but when people choose to abort that God-given life, it hurts His kind and loving heart. I wonder how many doctors, scientists, inventors of good things, etc, that would have blessed our nation and the world, were aborted? I grieve with God for every life lost. To answer your last question/statement, Sandra, YES I support sustaining life past birth. I believe in helping the helpless. Absolutely. What I don't believe in is a bloated bureaucratic system that rips off the tax payer and feeds itself by encouraging unnecessary dependence and disincentive in people -- a system that deadens dreams and potential in generations of people. God has answers for that too, if our lawmakers would take them into account.
Sandra Bishop June 23, 2014 at 12:00 pm
Yup, just as I expected. You get to choose who is deserving, post-birth. You get to choose what isRead More "unnecessary dependence". You might want to look up some quotes from Jesus. Don't remember him putting qualifiers on helping the poor. In your system, the Government gets to choose how a woman handles her pregnancy, then tells her it's her responsibility to raise the baby. Must be nice to have it both ways.

Latest tragedy reveals another danger of leaving children unattended in cars.
sklogw June 19, 2014 at 02:49 pm
It's called rear view mirrors and windows. I don't buy the story. I think criminal charges should beRead More in order.
Sandra Bishop June 20, 2014 at 11:31 am
I could see putting the child in the car, while it's running, for a/c, while unloading packages inRead More the trunk...and then returning the cart to the cart parking area. That would take a few minutes, not negligent or criminal. That said, was the child in a car seat? Shouldn't be able to reach the power window switch while in a car seat. Also should lock the power windows from the driver's panel, so kids in back can't open them.
Lorraine Terpening July 10, 2014 at 12:23 pm
I have roll up by hand windows. Always have!
There's a new intersection in the City of Fairfax where a traffic violation could cost you.

I ALREADY RECEIVED TWO WARNINGS IN THE MAIL. tHIS IS A HEAVY TRAFFIC AREA AND WHY WOULD YOU STOPRead More BEFORE YOU TURNED WHEN TRAFFIC IS BLOWING HORNS BEHIND YOU? Also there is a green arrow..surely you don't mean stop on a green arrow? Think you should concern yourself with more important things!!

Kids are using this stuff like candy. I had a teen stay with us that I was trying to help do itRead More right in my own home...after countless times catching him, I kicked him out and I'm sure he's still doing it. He wouldn't get help, he refused to stop...I had to stop enabling him. We need help in this area!!! We need resources for these kids, safe resources that they won't feel threatened
Ex SF wife June 7, 2014 at 12:19 pm
Tracey Rosenberg, please ignore Joe Brewer. Some people only post to see it appear ~ not to giveRead More advice or encouragement. Please concentrate your efforts and energy on yourself and your daughter where it's effective and appreciated. My prayers are with you, your family and especially your daughter for a successful recovery. Hugs!

I have seen this in many young persons lately. If you don't get the crowd into rehab, those that getRead More into rehab just start over again once they reattach to their group. If you can keep them away from those that use it, it is a start. However most addicts will seek it out. No matter how many times they go through rehab.
