Well" just remember. There aren't any Athiests in a fox hole! Anyone who has been in combat canRead More tell you that. These Athiest's fail to understand that God is real. They are taught this nonsense in the ultra liberal left wing nut job Universities. We actually pay these people to teach this stuff. The next time you need an Exorcist done, who are you going to call?? Oh and remember, a liberalism is a mental disorder. Check out Michael Savage's book. You may learn something.
Testy McTesterson April 20, 2014 at 05:40 am
Atheists do serve in combat (I know a few). Or is your argument that God is simply what we call ourRead More fear of death? Not very impressive, is it? And isn't Michael Savage the gay-basher who late in life admitted he was just ashamed he had the hots for his fellow male sailors back in the Navy? Conservatism is all hypocrisy, no brains, no heart.

Filing a lawsuit to make money is not that unusual. Claiming to be insane while doing it is. IRead More assume their defense will be that their entire act is merely parody of the thug culture.

This goes out to Patch Editor Beth Dalbey. I am losing faith in the Plymouth Patch when Insane ClownRead More Posse makes the top news in our community on Easter Sunday... This is gross mismanagement of what once was a great community website. Your killing it...

She is a member of a culture that simply has no regard for human life. She won't work any harder inRead More prison than she did in her everyday life. And just like it was in her everyday life, the government will provide her with everything she needs...except freedom. And we are the beneficiaries of that...keep her off our streets and out of our lives is a blessing.

Obama, Sharpton and Jackson are well-documented race-baters. They carefully choose to weigh in withRead More charges of racism when it fits their agenda. Obama with Trayvon Martin and Henry Louis Gates. Sharpton with Tawana Brawley and Jesse Jackson making a living from extorting money from large corporations for his own personal gain are all great examples. So, with these Black leaders serving as examples to our Black youth, what other result would you expect? The facts are indisputable...sad but true.
Dale Murrish April 19, 2014 at 02:59 pm
Good for Kym Worthy. Also, his lawyer is going a good job of defending him. We'll see how this playsRead More out. Hopefully good for Metro Detroit will come out of this tragic racial incident and there will be healing for our city. Finally.

The death penalty certainly cuts down on the record number of incarcerations in America. Enough ofRead More this liberal crap on humane punishment.

Not a single woman on the list. I wonder why .....
Robert April 18, 2014 at 12:51 pm
Good question Sue, why aren’t there any women on the list? Reading between the lines of yourRead More comment you are inferencing that the business world as not being fair to women. Here’s a hint, the people listed did not sit around waiting for someone else to lift them up. They pulled themselves up by their own boot straps. Just like thousands of business women, although not noted in this “local” article, around the world.
WCSC screen grab shows charges against worker.
Igor April 19, 2014 at 09:39 am
HF the charges were dropped. There is a problem because and I quote from the Patch"Lewis saysRead More he never noticed "No Free Re-Fill" signs and admits he had refilled his drink without paying on other occasions" and "On-site construction worker Chris Lewis told WCSC News he didn't know refills at the VA Medical Center in downtown Charleston weren't free."Where did you read that he knew he had to pay for it? No where in the article does he said he knew it.

It sure helps that I'm a little old lady because I just bring my cup from home from the last time IRead More was at a store. The last time I paid for a drink at costco was probably before the terrorists attacked us on 9-11. What's the big deal here, it's only soda? If this guy wants free drinks, it's none of your business, and non of the business of that nosey cop neither. You people don't get it, it's flat out entrapment by having the soda available. What's next, you expect me not to use my dead sister's handicap placard too?

Daffy Noodnicks April 19, 2014 at 09:31 am
Dale: you are being ridiculous as usual. Neither I nor John David said anything negative about yourRead More coworkers or GM. We were talking about you, you alone. You attacked another poster for not being as charitable as you, because you were involved in an employer sponsored event. This was an uncivil, baseless, self aggrandizating bit of obnoxiousness. You puff yourself up while ripping others down, without reason or any basis. Drop the attacks of other people and I will have nothing to criticize.
Dale Murrish April 19, 2014 at 10:38 am
Sorry I have such a short memory, Matt. You’ve said this specifically a few times before.Read More “We were talking about you, you alone.” I can’t challenge someone’s thinking if you happen to disagree with it. Like many of your other criticisms of me, it’s purely personal. Have a nice weekend.
Daffy Noodnicks April 19, 2014 at 12:05 pm
It really isn't surprising you miss the point again Dale. You have personally attacked anotherRead More poster. And I responded to that attack. The context of my comment has always been that you do not represent the groups of people you purport to in your many comments where you use false illogical sweeping generalizations. You don't represent or speak for GM or your coworkers, as I doubt they would make rude baseless attacks o people they don't know, or use charitable work to belittle others while patting themselves on the back. You did this, nobody else.

But for this idiot carrying a gun (legal or otherwise), this confrontation would not have escalatedRead More to the point where he apparently thought it would acceptable to shoot his neighbor in the leg to "keep him down". Of course, the NRA and others who think the Second Amendment trumps ALL other laws and rights still oppose ANY kind of restrictions on gun ownership or possession. Unless and until we join with victims like Gabby Giffords and James Brady and stand up to these self-absorbed morons, the rest of us will continue to be victimized by them.

Julie Lattimore April 18, 2014 at 05:19 pm
Let me clarify again... I wrote "many in the race" I did NOT write "most" orRead More "all" in the race. I did not group all black people together, I would never do that. There are "many" in my own race that are despicable human beings too. I am sorry if any of you read my comment and thought I was lumping you all together. Believe me, I know there are a lot of white people in those gangs too. My point was that this young boy should have never been allowed to roam those streets unsupervised, where the gangs hang out. That is exactly how they get involved with or victimized by gangs. It could have easily been that child beaten to near-death, look how close he was and his parents weren't even aware. Nobody is safe in that neighborhood, especially if they carry a purse, are talking on a iphone, listening to a ipod, using a cane, wearing expensive jewelry or looking defenseless. It's a cultural problem, it has absolutely nothing to do with skin color, it has everything to do with parents who don't watch or discipline their own kids, that includes the parents of this boy. That is why children end up in gangs, lack of supervision. It is abusive if you leave any young child to fend for themselves, but it is highly abusive if you leave them unsupervised in these dangerous areas where the known gang activity is high.
