    Another woman murdered. Put me in charge of solving the problem and I promise these monsters will stop killing her little girls.
    I know what is best. So if you refuse to, I will force you to.

    Re:Unformed family You just never know... There may come a day the family of a slain teenager may send thier regrets to a Governor for having put the hit on the person that killed their loved one, before they receive their commuted sentence.

    What I have to say has nothing to do with top stories, but who out there is sick of hearing about these miners from Chili?? I've heard about all one person can stand about a bunch of men stuck in a hole that they knew came with risks.. This country does'nt give the real HERO'S we call soliders a second line in any paper or news story. Every fighting man and woman in these God forsaken wars should be getting all the glory and attention that these people from another country are getting... You never hear that anyone of these BRAVE soliders or their family's receive any kind of recognition that they deserve other than a solider is being prosecuted or buried... You peopleof this country ought to be ashamed of yourselves!! What's next, do these miners get to become honorary presidents of this disrespectful and ungrateful nation?? CNN and the rest of you folks giving these miners so much attention ought to be ashamed of yourselves... DROP IT, and start giving the real HERO'S some respect and treat the families and Troopers who are fighting and dieing everyday some WELL DESERVED notice and treatment!! Afterall, you people would not havethe rights and FREEDOM you have without the sacrfice of our TROOPS!! Give it a rest already..... *Wayne*

    Here's a new story from Fox News this morning, Tuesday. An illeagal immigrant from Mexico useing stolen identifcation was granted $11,000 for workmans comp claim, federal judge knew ID was stolen but still gave this criminal LEECH the cash!! If this don't pi– you off, then what does? This country has got to do something to get control of the illeagal's in this country!! Watch the news now, you are going to see hundreds of thousands of false claims flooding the comp, unemployment and any other gov aid there is.. Mark my words these people are killing our nation and bring it down to a third world country. But then again this gov has been giving our country away since WW11.. The American people have got to wake up and start fighting for this country, or we will end up like the Jews in Germany in WW11 mass murders or slave laborers until there is no Americans left!!! COME PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY WAKE UP AND DEFEND YOUR COUNTRY,or you will be fighting for your and your children's lives one day very soon.. You better cause this gov won't !! *Wayne*
