Akj Ankazi Send in the Feds!, To lock down every main road every side street every alley way and every Rat Hole. Then fire every liberal teacher that is not teaching general academics. Then Fire that Ignorant Mayor of Chicago, then let some Good Factory jobs be established there. You'll See Miraculous changes in Chicago, "Guaranteed"!...
Jake Goldsmith Sending in police to keep the peace is not a long term solution. It will result in more people being imprisoned, more people resisting police, and higher recidivism rates. Chicago needs to be cleaned up, but it will not be a fast process, and investing in education is paramount.
Michael Miley It's true, they need their fathers. But it's not the governments nor society's job to raise our children, it's ours. Be their father, give the women a chance to be their mother instead of having to be both. The gangs will fall weak from lack of prospects, the kids will go on to shatter barriers because they know they can, and our children and grandchildren will live in a much better world than we have now. The formula for success has always been known....hard work+a few morals+a little skill (determination) -negativity=success.
Creath Carie Put out fliers for people to help build the wall. Give em a job and get them outa the city. They may realize how nice it is to be out of that situation and makingmoney lol
Sarang Banne As someone who lives in Chicago, I think it's important for people out of the city to realize that urban segregation is a big problem. The area I live in is wealthy and safe and clean, full of businesses and companies and educated professions. Mostly white and Asian and little Hispanic and barely any black people. Then there are the suburbs which are even wealthier. Just miles away is an area full of gang violence and populated by low income people who have no job opportunities, bad schools and mostly black. The two sides of the city barely ever come in contact. They need help on an economic level as well as a law enforcement one
Isiah Anderson Vicious cycle of the crack and other drug epidemic.. broken families.. a history of corrupt government... chicago is uniquely qualified to be a disaster.. its a third world country... and should be treated as such.. need a holistic approach
Rainbowbright Ross They don't know what the problem is but the city approves spending 162 million dollars to build a stadium... they could have put a quarter of that money in those communities to provide opportunities with education programs, youth programs, revitalization of the areas, etc
John De Gutis Chicago created this with a false idealistic thinking. It has a criminal problem and arming its legally capable citizen is part of a solution. The restrictions are a control that fuels criminals. I can show you cities, counties and even countries that have less gun violence with armed citizens and show massive gun violence with unarmed cities, counties and countries. Chicago has a criminal problem.
Tom Lowe Police officers are now afraid to do their job because of the Liberal Media witch hunt that would follow. People need to get over the fact, if you commit a crime? Don't punish the police for doing the it jobs if an arrest or fatility occurs.
Lola Baldwin The change begins withe gang members, they must want to live more than they want to protect a faux sense of power over other individuals. In the blink of an eye you could take your last breath, is ego really worth that? Police can only do so much, it is up to each individual to say enough, to want the killing to stop, it is not a glamorous life and innocent children are getting caught in the crossfire.
Sharon Smart The breakdown of the family unit and morals is leading to the demise of our youth. How did big cities get control of white gangs? I don't know the answer to inner city violence but I believe blacks are more likely to respond to black leaders. Obama would be a good leader to help with the problem. If nothing else, he seems to be a good father figure. Big money selling drugs and such is going to make getting an education to be a teacher, IT specialists, or whatever is going be a hard sell.
Donna Lauzon It starts at home. Some join because they want to belong. Say what you will, but belonging and attachment to others have been proven time and time again to be a motivating factor. Fix the homes before you try fixing the streets.
Jill Spiekerman Of course the perpetrators are going to say don't bring in more police. If they care they should be saying get rid of Chicago's mayor. He is a joke.
Sandra Lynne It will take far more than police. Stop and frisk, police, community leaders, citizens fighting back and willing to testify. It will take everything at this point because its deeply planted. Chicago has had such hard gun laws that good people were the only ones not armed. It will take a change of mentality about that as well. I manage condos there, ive had people complain about a guy cleaning his gun on his patio. Regular folks think that means hes a bad person instead of understanding hes got the right to own a gun. Like, call me if he shoots you, having a gun is his second ammendment right, cleaning it outside means he didnt want to make a mess inside. If his cleaning of one gun bothered simple people, then seeing a collector clean a dozen would give them a heart Attack. That mentality has to change there, that citizens realize they have the right to own And protect themselves.
Ed Crenshaw Listen I know when it comes to Black folks every non black put on his/her Tarzan suit and has a million ideals on how to handle the N words! But this issue will ONLY be solved with a change in culture proper education and jobs! That way the hard core criminals can be separated from the masses! And only BLACK people can do this it sure as Hell won't be solved by a FoxNews who gets a chubby out of Black discord!🖕🏿
Bonnie Boland Gangs have been a problem for a long time. But gangs in Chicago and other cities are out of control! It's going to take a major investment of money and counselors to help these young men change their ways!
Mary Walter Listen to what many of the gang members call family. They are seeking acceptance, respect, and acknowledgement that they are somebody. If only these men and women realized they are somebody special. Each of them was choose by God as his child and given the CHOICE of how they want to live. Now if only they are brave enough to confront the issue and step out of the violence.
Justin Nelson It's a parenting problem. The plague of broken family syndrome and the vast majority of African American babies being born out of wedlock (73%) is something the police will never be able to solve.
Farries Morrison I am now at the belief of Separate Schooling, integration has been a disaster for the Afro-American.. we as Black Citizens need to educate our own children!!! we also have our own universities too!!! there has never been racial harmony in AMerica when it comes to the Afro-American and the Anglo-Saxon, so who are we fooling???
Vincent Moody So you telling me they want the violence to stop but dont want more police im gone tell you the truth to stop it but people want like it But the only way to stop it is to kill all the Leaders and older gang bangers off See i told you you want like it ohh welll guess nothing want change in Chicago so dont complain just move away
Mona Hoedel Education, education, education but in order for that to happen teachers need to feel safe and confident in their environment. It must be flooded with law enforcement to even begin getting the criminals out. Children need hope and opportunity to change their futures. If the only opportunity you see day in and day out is criminal then crime will be the driving force of these inner city areas. It isn't about ethnicity it's purely economic opportunities available. These cities have been left behind and forgotten resulting in the problems they are facing now.
Marilyn Hodges Nichols That is sad when kids have to turn to killing to be accepted because their parents didn't whip their rear end when they were little and show them that they cared about them...Why have children if you are going to drop them and leave them for society to raise..oh wait..its tax time...I remember now...the more kids you have the more FREE money and stuff you get...It's all about ME....what can I get without working for it...let the kids fend for themselves...that is ashame...
James Napotina Must read. Must share everyday to everyone. It's time to March into Washington!!!!! I believe its now important to share this information due to many of Americans who believe in Human Rights! Many of you won't read or respond but this is an example of how Americans have their priorities mixed up! We have a human rights crisis right here in America. It's a war against non custodial parents ( primarily fathers) and custodial parents (mothers) considering divorce rates are way over 60% in this country it's an epidemic. There are over 16 million children receiving child support. Out of that 16 million there are 11 million fathers being alienated by the use of the court system in family law sector which comprises of restraining order court, child protection services, social services and other out reach programs. This system is made only for profit of our children.. child support claims they provide a free service to both parents, but let's not be fooled.. judge's are instructed to set the highest possible child support payment as possible even when the non custodial doesn't have the ability to pay.. so in hand what does that mean?! Judge's across the country are imposing unrealistic support amounts.. the majority of non custodial parent don't even have enough to survive that's of course after proving this with pay stubs and tax returns.. but of course they don't take in account factors such as net pay, housing and financial support that is required when they have the child/children. If a non custodial parent doesn't have the ability to pay or is behind a few weeks they then get free housing but they have to wear orange jump suits all day.. if the custodial parent doesn't have the ability to pay they can get free housing wearing Michael Kors. Some and many custodial parent use the court system and circumvent and get the upper hand to alienate the non custodial parent from the child/children such bogus allegations to child protective (with no repercussions) if they are in fact false, false allegations to Restraining order court ( with no repercussions if in fact they are false). When the non-custodial parent enters the courtroom they are required to prove they are fit to provide care to the child. The custodial parent is under the presumption that they are fit and they have to be proven that they are unfit. So immediately while entering this Arena one-party is climbing the hill while the other party is rolling down hill. So we could talk about fairness and equality we also can talk about basic human rights there's a reason why there hasn't been any family court reform. The simple reasons why there isn't any family reform is because it's profitable if you take away the ability of the custodial parent to be able to make false allegations by implementing simple procedures such as a "Polygraph" then that would mean less income for the states. Lawyers and judges need to have the ability to create an income. Child Support Services claim they give free services to non-custodial and custodial parents but the big question here is how are they paying for the services such as probation officers, child support operators, paying rent expenses for their overhead and Facilities and the answer is quite simple.. our children are paying for them every dollar is given to each State's Child Support Program is put into a bank account so we're talking about millions of dollars everyday this money is then held for 3 days or more before it's released to the custodial parent and the simple reason for that is if you keep millions of dollars in a account then they are able to make interest off of our children's money. Child support programs have a marketing budget they post pictures of children and the question within their campaign is " who taught your child how to throw a spiral " well most likely it wasnt their own father due to many cases of alienation, so you can assume it would be the step parent. These marketing signs they post on buses and billboards stating "child support is more than just paying is a direct kick in the parents face. Their goal is to convince everyone shouldn't work things out themselves and go to court so they can create more income while our children and parents pay for these very expensive marketing signs. Family law is extremely profitable on all sides except for the non-custodial parent and the children even in some cases the custodial parent gets charged for using the services such as ATM fees Exedra. Then it comes to visitation the standard is not 50/50.. non custodial parent the standard is less 18% of the child's life, if your lucky enough to have a custodial parent whom follows the court order of visitation.. if they don't then your lucky to get 9%. Many non custodial parents go months and years without the ability to even see their child. They exhausted all the financial means just to get 18% to 25% to be apart of their blood and love.. Unfortunately the man 95% of the time is the non-custodial so in turn the government is ripping children's fathers from their lives Many men give up walk away from their child just to be able to survive and to avoid themselves from being incarcerated with no way of getting out and plan on establishing a relationship at a later date. We can talk about enforcing the litigants rights of parenting time what they do in those cases are the non-custodial parent will get so called make up time (can't take back time) and they will fine the custodial parent for alienating the child against the other parent but the fine they impose doesn't get applied to child support it goes directly to the state while you're exhausting more financial means just to even raise these equality issues and they make more money. Robbing our children of their God given parent and their futures. You can never get back the informative years and never get back holidays that are taken from you. You have to wait till the child or children are able to formulate their own opinion and make a common sense decision for some it's 7 or 8 years old for others it's 13 to 15 So when I see all these protesters lobbying to keep undocumented aliens in this country and to allow refugees into our country. It appears to be mind-boggling that they're putting their energies towards this rather than our own children which is the future of America.. This is not a father's rights message this is a human rights message.. why are we not focusing on our children and reforming family law instead of protecting people that are committing crimes in family law and in immigration law.. This is propaganda at it's finest! . I can go on for days about this many of you won't even read to the end of this but if you did it should start to make some sense. We have dysfunction extreme dysfunction within our own system and we're looking to take on more issues let's fix us first and then worry about everybody else! There are many parents and children suffering to survive due to this propaganda! Share so we can March to Washington!!
Jeff Reid Hmmmmmm......... Provides family these GODDAMN HUMANS don't have otherwise!!!!!! What's that say about family structure in those 'hoods?????? If I hears the letters BLM one more time in my F' ING life I swear to the Lord!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Clay Vandyke Well more gang members won't stop it either!!! I have to lean on the side those will increase if they had more gang members. Also if people stop killing and that would help justifying less police and have a sustained police force. The violence is justification for increased police force.
Fox NewsSaturday, February 18th, 2017 at 3:00am
Chris Lewis That sucks sorry to hear that if only California had put some money into it's infrastructure instead of Sanctuary Cities this could've been avoided.🤔
Steve Keen This is just pathetic... looting a house during an emergency and taking something that had little monetary value but means everything to the owner... and these are the lowlifes people like this soldier defends when they put on that uniform!
Tim Thomas Wow! How can those medals ever be replaced? Maybe the president or someone high up can reissue them to this man; but it would never be the same as the day that they were issued. May the thieves rot!
Brenda Wieczorek Not that surprised when you look at how depraved people in this country have become. Seems many think that everything that happens gives them the right to destroy and steal. Soulless creatures.
Delores A Roby Very sad. When people get evacuated there needs to be a plan in place before hand to insure looters can't gain access to the area. We need to learn a lesson and start preparing ourselves for disasters, there seem to be a lot of them lately.
Jorgen Metzon I wonder about this. Where other houses also broke into or just this one. Also, he still has orders for the "medals". Story seems overblown. Bottom line here is that California thinks more about illegals than they do its citizens, not fixing the problem and using the money to support people in this country illegally and now the entire country is on the hook to clean up the mess.
Richard Pitts Doesn't surprise me one bit. Quite common place in a socialist society. Look around. Hurricane Katrina the looting. Black lives matter protests the looting. Inauguration Day peaceful demonstrations. The looting. It's funny how I can get a ticket for not using a proper turn signal but it's not against the law to loot plunder assault and harbor illegals. What a world. I believe we should start a revolution. The far left already has.
Ralph Hainsworth He should have taken them with him. The whole reason for evacuating is due to flooding that will destroy everything in the path of the water. If not for floods, looters.. Take your valuables and leave is what we were told.
Joe Mason This is horrible, if it happened. Why would anyone steal service medals? Was anything else in his home taken (haven't seen any article saying that)? Were other home burgled during the evacuation?
Jackie Green Hawk I live in near where all of the wild fires were in Gatlinburg, Tennessee and the town and area was evacuated for about a week and there was no looting or buglary. The difference between the people of TN and California.
Nizar Nizarsson Really Fox news because you didn't mention that dam before surprise people we didn't mention it coz Cheeto didn't too !!!
Karen Lawson easy enough to get the government to reissue. Veterans affairs does it all the time for vets who have lost them in fires and such. Just contact local VA and they can walk you through the process. My mom did it after Dad died when she wanted to replace his that were lost in a fire.
Allison Reynolds The situation is awful but please get the facts straight, the spillway did not collapse! There was a large hole in the original spillway that lead to slowing water releases. As the lake rose because substantial rain and some snow melt from a warm storm they couldn't release enough water which lead to the use of the emergency spillway. There was erosion in the hillside below the emergency spillway which they are working on repairing but the spillway still stands and the water has been continuously released from the damaged spillway. The water now is close to 50' below where it was more than a week ago greatly reducing the risk. Now all that said I hope they find the thugs who broke into home and stole his medals of honor.
James Jones Why not, that's pretty par for the course. The way we were treated when we came home from the Vietnam War was a 180 degree difference than how vets are treated today. I am glad today's vets are getting the respect that all vets deserve.
Claire Vermette There is no explanation for those lowlife's, shoot on site. You may be able to get them replaced, check with VA or your Congressman. Another Nam vet, Jerry
Cheryl Little Melton This story sickens me. So an area is forced to evacuate, but somehow scum is allowed to go in and steal from honest, hardworking people.
Tom Grauer Sr. It's the only way the piece of crap that stole them could ever get them. All looters should be shoot on sight! Like everything else today, there are no consequences.
Margaret Schohn That is one sick person who would steal a Vietnam Vets metals when they have to evacuate their home because of spill when they find that person I hope there is some special charges that hold additional time that they can add to the charges that they have they deserve to go to jail for a long time.
Kellianne Smith Lipinski What's even not sad is as kids my siblings found some framed & mounted war medals in the garbage. They picked up thinking they looked neat & showed my dad. That's probably been about 30 yrs. I now have them, just makes us sad that there were n family members to give them to or they wanted them.
Jason Jerauld Sad and all but maybe he should've taken them with him. What did he think would happen if dam had burst. Washed away maybe. Just saying.
Jonita Lee Yates That's just stupid. It means absolutely nothing to the one who stole it and he won't even get a lot of money for them if any.
Lindsey Norden 200,000 people evacuated from their homes and not allowed back. Looters take advantage during state of emergency. Will looters be shot as in previous disasters?
Eileen Mccarthy These criminals she be hunted down , criminals that loot people homes in a evacuation should spend at least 20 years in prison. We need to start setting examples so these criminals think twice before robbing citizens in a evacuation.
John Maccione Karma will find those who Stole from this Great Veteran along with other homes as well ,, So to the Scum Bags Who took a Emergency situation to Steal from him and others who had to leave there homes for Safety , well they better hope Danger doesn't find them First !!! You can't hide...
Barbara Strickland How awful! So much thieving everywhere. People's things, some may have no value, but are keepsakes of someone's life. I believe in karma and have no doubt the thieves will pay down the line.
Fox NewsSaturday, February 18th, 2017 at 2:00am
Rachel McMeekin I don't know what story some people are reading, but I just read about a book returned 75 years later lol. Not quite sure why Trumps relevant. Anyways better let than never! I always hang my head in shame when I return a late library book.
Clara Peyron From the looks of the book, bet it's worth a few $$$$. I have all my sons children's books from 45 years ago. Wonder if kids read anymore...I have 100's. I had him enrolled in a children's book bookclub...hate to give them up..is that being Silly....
Fonzi Landa Let me guess, if the President would of been behind this return, it would been the end of the world. Riots, protest, vandalized, attacks on civilians burn American flags, and everything little thing to blame their mistake on the republicans like always.
Tony Gatas And here we go with politics! They are talking about a book that was just returned after 75 years and people or should I say idiots get politics involved! Why?it has nothing to do with this storyline. OMG people get a life and job or something!!!!
Terri Neely Some of the comments are so mean and hateful. It is too bad hatefulness is what our country has turned into. This is just a short human interest story. Take it as that!
Vich Ferer Thank you President Trump. It happened on your watch. Winning again.
Mark Bowers I've been waiting for it to be returned. Now I can do my book report assignment from 1953. Better late than never.
James Best There can not be a fee that much. The fine can not exceed the cost of the book plus a percentage (Usually less than 25%) of the cost of the book to replace. A book that old probably costs less than $1.00
Ipetero Simon THEY DIDN'T EVEN READ IT. totally my own story, the book got lost the first day it was borrowed and they only found it 75 years later on the back of a long family story of 'a borrowed lost book'
Gary Lee Knackstedt My favorite was "Ping", the story of a duck on the banks of the Yangtze River. I memorized "The Owl and the Pussycat" for a county fair at least a year before kindergarten.
Joshua Caleb Reno I had a book out for 4 years and it was a $334 fine, I couldn't imagine THAT library if I had had it out 75 years !
Brian Greco Horseshit that the fee was waived. Do you know how much benefit the library would have received from that fee? I hate cheap people who circumvent charity fees!
Catherine Calder Hate to put a damp tea towel over the subject, but they'd only "waiver" the fee, if the person was dead. In other words, he/she/it was unable to pay, because he/she had passed away.
Justin Melick About time! I've been waiting 75 years to read that! 😂
Evan Flynn Fox makes a post about an overdue library book and Trump is still somehow the topic of discussion. How?
Jamie Shefchik I'm a slow reader, but it never took me over 75 years to finish a book.
Marc Cinq-Mars what the hell was the fine. In The Guinness Book, it should go down as the biggest library fine ever.
Bill Fisher Waved the fee? That money could buy more books for undocumented immigrants.
Mike Murphy Why are there some pro and anti Trump folks trying to rediculously swerve this into a venue for political screeds?! Azinine.
Andrea Villare Another reason to get off FB. Insipid comments that have NOTHING to do with the story!
Nora Rosales It don't matter how much the fee is. I can pay more than the book cost.
Daviunna Barrow Ok really who kept up with a book out that long is seriously dead gone, need help.
Mark Bowers I bet Pelosi had it. Democrats "RESIST" when things are taken away from them.
Mark Evans Where's the protesters?
Zeke Garvey This is REAL NEWS!!! I am glad our country can go on now!
Fox NewsSaturday, February 18th, 2017 at 1:00am
Danielle Monique Whitman All these people talking about adoption PLEEEEASE tell me you all are adopting children who need homes?! If not then who are you to call someone selfish and dumbasses??!
Austin Murri Tell me. How is it fair that those of us who want kids, but can't, have to shell out a fortune just for a chance while those who can have children, but don't want them, write a few days worth on a check to have the baby terminated?
Lisa Hampton Williams My daughter tried for years to get pregnant and never could. She and her husband were lucky to only do one round of IVF and her ins paid for 90% of it. I'm happy to say I get to babysit that wild child everyday. Kenadie is now 18 months old.
William Waitt My wife and I went through it all multiple iui multiple failed embryo transfers 5 1/2 years and it was all worth it because in September we had the love of my life my baby girl I couldn't be happier
Danielle Magliaro Some brutal comments on here! How about wish them well to hopefully have two healthy babies! Everyone thinks that they are judge and jury on here. Those saying they should adopt...Are you adopted or have adopted children? Those saying IVF is wrong...Did you read what this couple has endured trying to conceive? The travesty is the expense good decent humans are expected to spend to either adopt or use a fertility clinic...and junkies give birth to children that suffer withdrawal from the first day of their lives or the scum of the earth beat babies...Where is the balance?
Courtney Smith I pray none of the people who are against IVF ever have to walk through infertility. It's the most painful thing on this earth second to losing a child. I don't agree with discarding embryos though since they are still life, but IVF is a wonderful thing (I just think all embryos should be used at some point). We were ONE step away from having to do IVF. Our last Hail Mary attempt at lesser treatments luckily worked and we're 28 weeks pregnant now. Adoption is fantastic and something we'll still do one day. It's something we wanted to do before we ever found out I was broken, but nothing will ever compare to feeling my son kicking me.
Amanda Wealot It is the saddest situation. There's a real dilemma that often isn't considered when people are emotional and desperate. Having the desire and ability to create new life doesn't mean we should leave half a million souls on ice indefinitely or have the power of death to terminate the life created. Children are not merely lab specimen. http://m.motherjones.com/politics/2006/07/souls-ice-americas-embryo-glut-and-wasted-promise-stem-cell-research
Felicia Joy Fitzgerald Congrats 👶🏻 to the future mommy and daddy! My husband and I know the roller coaster ride you've been on! We have a beautiful 22 month old boy because of IVF. It's so worth it. I would do it over in a heart beat. God bless your new family!
Tracy Lyne Kindla Fox News supporters are the most judgmental people on the planet! Live and let live. How does what someone does in their private lives and with their own money impact yours? Guess most of you missed the verses in the Bible about judging others!
Stephanie Meaghen Phillips Everyone is barking adopt how many have their own kids yelling others to adopt ..... please share those beautiful memories your making..... this isnt. Apun to those chose adoption this is towards all the other morons who feel they can tell others what they should and shouldnt do one word #merica i chose freely to use my own uterus to carry 2 children and im an ORPHAN with two junkie parents i guess shame on me too
Carrie Schaefer Some of the most discussing comments I've ever seen on FB....and there's a lot out there! How dare you judge someone for wanting their own biological baby!! You have probably never struggled to have a baby, had a miscarriage that broke your heart in 2! There are children that need homes ALL over the world...heartbreaking...BUT does that mean someone can't have their own baby even if it takes more than the next family to conceive! Shame on you!!!
Vincent Moody Ivf is like 10,000 or more but iui is like 300 to 800 they take the sperm and put it close to the egg and hopefully itll reach the egg wayyyyy cheaper you could try that for the peopl who cant afford the ivf you could research iui
Monica Rynowiecki Koty Ray I don't really see it as couple bashing. to me abortion and possibly discarding a fertilized egg is the same thing. A human life is a human life it doesn't matter what stage it is in
Michel Marshall Hinkley Such wonderful news!!!Infertility is just awful. I too know the struggles. 8 years, 4 IUIS, 3 surgeries, 3 IVF and a beautiful 2 year old!!! I am now pregnant with our second after another 3 rounds of IVF. We're due in March. (I am 43 btw) Man, I can't imagine how large our pile of needles would have been!! Congratulations again! Ain' t science swell ☺❤
Samantha Traver Stop talking crap. Ugh! I HATE society today! We think because we "live" on Facebook we have to be in everyone's business, and we have to comment. Ya ya I know I'm commenting. But this is just nasty! This couple wanted a child. Unless you know the struggles of infertility or child loss, STFU!
Victoria Kaplan How many of the people judging these people here have biological kids of their own? Seems like some seriously angry ignorant losers were on the internet tonight as always. ♡ good for them for being strong and children are a blessing from god.
Vernon Caldwell NaPro Technology is a more effective alternative to IVF that respects life. My wife and I went through IVF and it almost destroyed our marriage but we do have 3 incredible gifts from God because of it. Now 17 years later my wife is a NaPro Technology trained doctor and is having real success while not charging tens of thousands of dollars to help couples achieve a family.
Karen Lawson Well good for them but I don't really believe their choice of duke is a wise one. Of all the men's names that start with a D to match the baby girls D name, they pick a title over a name? When they could have picked David, Daniel,etc or even went totally old school and picked Apollo they pick Duke. Kid is in for a lifetime of hearing jokes about the Duke of earl song and reruns of old shows with dogs named duke.
Sarah Spinler Creedon Aren't they glad that their insurance covered all of those treatments? Because under previous insurance plans employers could opt out of coverage. Especially on religious reasons. Because IVF is not something supported by some religions
Dave Ponsford I was told when I was 24 that I would never be able to have children. So hopefully they get what they want. Some think that adoption is the answer for this couple, but what's wrong with them wanting their own child? If you think that way then call for the government to stop all women getting pregnant until all children are adopted first.
Sue Carlson God Bless your new family. I know your pain first hand and walked in your shoes. We lost one baby. We adopted two boys. We are complete. I will pray for your family and two healthy babies. I'm so very happy for you. Enjoy!!! It's all worth it! ❤❤❤❤
Steven Bdylyn First of all how dare anybody make a comment about IVF if they've never had to go through it and adoptions not an option when you want your own child and IVF was about 13,000 where are adoption is over 30,000 because you're actually buying the baby from the mother I don't care what codewords they put it under i paid 13g for my ivf and now have a child who is my blood like everybody else with no issues desires
Renea Richardson Just want to point out if you were barren in olden times you either didn't have kids or took on an orphan. Not force a miracle
Erick Mendoza IVF involves the death of several embryos, and hence, if we respect the dignity of life, we pro-lifers should oppose it.
Eric Miranda Congratulations to the parents!!! There are so many ignorant people posting on this, but any decent human being would be happy for these people.

Aaron Sweigart Universities are usually filled with idiots. Not surprising really. People trying to better themselves but oops "your outfit is all wrong..." smh
Jess Hickey Whether the dress code is agreed with or not, if it was publicized as the dress code and not followed, they were right to turn those away who did not comply. Just because you don't like a rule doesn't mean you don't follow it. I don't like the dress code at my job, I think it's over the top, but believe me, if I show up to work out of dress code, I expect to be sent home to change in order to comply with the rules of the workplace. I'm welcome to find another job that doesn't have such a dress code, as well. I'm disappointed that so many people see a problem with the initial actions of the school. Rules are in place for a reason and there are consequences in the real world for not following them.
Jimmy Guerrero Lol,thank god my 18 year old son is in the United State's Air Force,he's going to Afghanistan in a few month's, & he's getting his Master's degree in the the Military.😄😄👍👍👊⛪🗽🗽🗽🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Justin A Smith I'm a 47 year old business man and I wear brown shoes and a blue suit all the time
Amanda Bise "The stringent new policy forbids blue suits, colored shirts, brown shoes and other attire." 1. This title is completely misleading 2. Based on the comments I would say 99% of the commenters didn't read the whole 3 paragraph story ....people were rejected from a job fair for having brown shoes. That is completely absurd. I'm not going to hire someone based on the color of their shoes lol....so yes, being turned away from a job fair where you're trying to get a JOB based on shoe color is ridiculous. Read the article before spewing nonsense - these kids pay thousands of dollars to attend the college, put themselves in debt, then can't get into the job fair because of brown shoes.
Gustavo Machado Well, people need to put their big boy pants on and get over the fact that he won. He is now the president of the United States of America and if you have a problem with it, move out of the country. And what do you gain by continually tearing down the president anyway?
Jerry Miller Now that's just stupid. I can't count the number of times I've seen dark suits and brown shoes on tv on news anchors, commercials etc. Who makes these idiotic calls?
Leslie Newsham Brown shoes?! How in the world did they get into Rutgers??? Standards people - standards! At least go with cordovan. It goes with black, blue and brown. Something my Mom taught me❤️
Danielle Magliaro Apparently Rutgers administrators have zero fashion sense! A navy suit and brown shoes with a colorful shirt looks sharp! Did they expect them to dress in black and appear as though they were in mourning? If they said no ripped jeans or sneakers.. which are in style currently, that would be understandable since that isn't business attire. But this was a ridiculous rule and they should hold another job fair in the immediate future!
Kirsten Light I really don't understand the problem with blue suits and brown shoes. I am frequently one of the business representatives at the Rutgers Business School for my company and men in my company frequently wear this. This rule should be looked at for reasonableness
Laura Goodwin "Administrators say the dress code change was in response to students who did not dress properly in past years. Senior Associate Dean Martin Markowitz says the school did not permit blue to avoid confusion with different shades." This may be the dumbest part.
Abbie Canon Solarez Someone posted this on another feed: I have a friend that works as a intern at CNN here in N.Y.C. She told me that they have a big office that says "War Room ". A team of reporters, journalists etc. have a meeting every morning for 2 hours on what they can do to take down Trump. Find anything about his family or anything they can blow up. Even make up stuff. She also told me that they still have pictures of Obama & Hillary still up everywhere. She got in trouble because she questioned it & they said that there will never be a picture of Trump in the office & as far as their concerned Obama is still president.
Heather Dunn Stowe Why on Earth would you restrict any color? I would understand if they turned people away for showing up in shorts and a tshirt, but a suit and shirt and shoes of any color should have been perfectly fine.
Holly Kent In a place where I interview people with Ph.D exclusively. There are several Universities that cause the the resume to go directly in the trash. Rutgers just joined this list.
Samantha Lowrey Geez they're college kids! They might only have a limited selection of professional attire and not want to go buy an entirely new suit (or can't currently afford one). Saying that they're lazy or don't follow directions because they can't blow their food budget on clothes is ridiculous
Jacob Yorton "Senior Associate Dean Martin Markowitz says the school did not permit blue to avoid confusion with different shades." What is the possible back story behind this? Confusion over shades of blue in clothing lead to banning blue? Why?
Linda Marlett dumbest dress code policy I have ever heard. They should be happy the students weren't wearing pants hanging halfway to their knees with underwear hanging out
Paul Lucas Blue suits with brown shoes is a fashion trend right now for young men. It started about 2 years ago, popular particularly with 20 somethings, although older men do wear them to look a little more in style with their younger male colleagues. Tradition for decades has been for men to wear black shoes with suits. Brown shoes with sport coats and slacks perfectly acceptable. But times change, we'll see how long this trend lasts.
Kate Hennessy I went to TCNJ and we had the exact same type of events. It was unbelievable to me what some students would wear to meet their prospective employers. Sometimes it was actually embarrassing to see what some of the girls would wear. I totally agree with a dress code but some of the attire that they banned is perfectly acceptable.
Pete McMahon Why?? Teach these kids a thing A Bout the real world. You walk into an interview with jeans and a t shirt you get turned away.. unless that's the attire of the business.. like zumiez or something
Carolyn Hendrick Matthews I'm glad I went to college back in the day when colleges weren't so mamby-pamby, bowing to every little whine coming from students.
Allison Wasik Why are they apologizing ? there was a dress code !! They didn't follow it .. they should have either paid attention or if they didn't have it borrowed it .. why are there exceptions for everything .. why can't you just follow the rules ??
Bill Alvarez What kind of idiots run these schools? How offensive, dressing as if you really want a job. Nothing says dress to impress like flip flops and tank tops. Smh
Denise Jasienowski Oh If I were a parent - I'd be right there on their doorsteps. How dare they turn kids away from possible future job prospects. !! This is the most stupidest thing I have ever heard. So red suits, purple, black, yellow, white would have been ok... WHAT college can tell a student WHAT to wear or HOW to Wear it - AS long as it is a formal business suit. Isn't it up to the recruiters and Job Fair people to make that decision if they want a future business person employed?? So everyone HAS to FIT into the same robotic mode as is demanded by a school?? Since when have we had indoctrination in our schools... OH wait - it fits "the agenda" It is a bunch of BS and Parents need to take heed on what some of these colleges are actually DOING to their children !!
Jonathan Bowers The larger problem isn't people's love for brown shoes and blue shirts, rather the fact that these individuals were unable to follow the guidelines put in place when they went to the job fair. Now every place I have ever worked has had a dress code that had to be followed, this is a valuable lesson to these individuals that to succeed in a job you have to follow the guidelines. And yes I am currently wearing a blue shirt
Fox NewsFriday, February 17th, 2017 at 11:00pm
Chad Freeman Well it's pretty obvious the deputy patrol guy threw the first punch and continued to instigate a physical altercation but yet the jailer gets charged with 3 counts .. give me a break !
Cheryl Sanger Palone You people have some serious problems. Never ever is it about the subject but all derogatory remarks all about politics. This is getting out of control People. Do you really like to argue that much??
Steve Smith Oh man. They both had magical badges on and magical government job titles that automatically make them exempt from human nature and being scumbags or committing crimes. Republicans must be torn on this one. Love, An independent
Shawn Churchel If the sheriff cannot control his own behavior with another civil servant then he definitely shouldn't be able to be a peace officer since they definitely would be put in a similar situation in the real world.
Vincent Mazo Ridiculous. No need to press charges, let them fight it out.
Curt Ousley Looks like the deputy instigated the physical confrontation. Nevertheless he was wrong to even think of arresting a detention officer. The instant he knew there was a problem he should have left the room and immediately called a supervisor. Then let the supervisor meate out whatever issues there were. The deputy went too far and the jailer/detention officer should have stopped and notified his supervisor. The deputy probably started as a jailor and his rank is somewhat higher but the detention officer has the responsibility of his post in that jail. Im having a problem with the charge of resisting arrest. The deputy should have never allowed it to come to blows. He should have called his sergeant and let him decide what to do. I should know. Im a deputy myself and if I worked at that department Id be plum embarrassed.
James Best So the deputy, who twice assaulted the jailer...Goes free while the jailer...Who was assaulted in his place of work...Is arrested?
Leo Alvarez That's normal, it happens frequently, is a Testosterone contest between agencies, Police Officers tend to look down at Detention Deputies or Correctional Officers, they think they are better and have god conplex, the only problem is that when they are inside the jail the Police don't have his gun and taser and you never had a good as wiping until a Correctional Officer give you one. Just saying. They both should be reprimanded but no to arrest the Detention Officer.
Oscar Rhodes Maybe that's the direction the citizens of this country is headed in too. Normally fighting come after bullying. They was just setting a example of fighting. We've already got the bulling 101 from our president. People using many Avenues to defend their mental inabilities.
Danny Ballerini I wonder what the problem was. 2 very high stress thankless jobs, I'm sure tensions run high sometimes. They should handle it internally without the legal system. You have to consider what would happen to the jailer if he was put in jail
Joseph Holstein Lol love how they wrote this piece, the jailer did in fact raise his hands but there was no talk of the deputy choking the man! Then when on the wall the deputy attacked him again but the jailer was arrested? Lol wow! Did a liberal write this article?
Maya Jones Innis The jailer look like he was emotionally out of control. The Sheriff looked like he was physically out of control. Sheriff put his hands on the jailer first in the video. He is the one who began the assault. Once the sheriff began to choke the guy. The guy had his hands up, for a while. Then began to defend himself.
Debbie Jones Best I have to say whoever threw the first punch should be the one arrested. What if this deputy had acted this way to a civilian? These deputies are supposed to DEESCALATE situations. And if they aren't tried to do that, they why?
Kent Holmes He came out of the property/intake pod and approached the Deputy in an aggressive manner. Should the Deputy have just stood there and waited for the jailer to hit him?
Allen Guiney Bottom line wether it be two police officers, or one police officer and one civilian employee, coming out of his office and starting the confrontation with the deputy was a bad decision.
James Dailey I understand it's human nature to have disputes but any other job on Earth you'd be fired from immediately. One guys suspended with pay the other guy is still working! This is why America thinks you're above the law... Because you act like you are. And 9 times out of 10 I'm on your side. But you wouldn't keep a job at McDonald's with this behavior...
Erik Johnson First of all, it was a deputy and a detention officer. And non of us know exactly what happen. And Fox, you guys are pathetic for posting this as news.
Earl Harrison The deputy was wrong. I don't care what the detention officer said or did. The deputy escalated the situation. If he had an issue go up the chain of command.
Menno Ydema Too weird 😂 The Sheriff's Deputy is the one who should be arrested for assault though, he threw the first punch
Zachary Kellerman-Stines Deputy looks to be physical aggressor here .. words and hand gestures won't hold up for need of self defense .. the fact this deputy swung with a closed fits before the officer attempted to take deputy to ground shows this
Max Cruz As the jailer he had the power to kick out the patrol man or takedown the patrol man and secure him in the cell room how convenient is that! Lol. Then call for a deputy to answer a A&B complaint and then a detective to process the deputy and have him release pending final charges at the court. Make sure he is under admin leave and strip his firearm. Lol
Jason Shumiloff Funny how he didn't get charged with assaulting an officer. Had it been a citizen, they would pursue the most horrifying charges.... Like attempted murder of a cop..... The blue line of privilege strikes again....
Gustavo Machado Seriously people get a life. What do you gain by continually tearing down the president anyway?
Christina Soto Little Appears to me the deputy attacked first by choking him but I don't know all the details clearly that jailer has got some anger problems
Elizabeth Day Better stock up on the bottled water and surgical masks! Now our oceans will be dumped with coal ash, oil, you name it, and all the sea life will die too! Cancer was on decline, but now will be on the rise again. Good job, Trump!
Fox NewsFriday, February 17th, 2017 at 10:30pm
Delores Brumfield They are destroying the Democrats party . Im a registered Democrat and changing to Republican because of all the stupid action of the liberals.
Robert Manning I've never heard of these stories and I follow the media pretty avidly...Fox News is trying to sell you these news stories from those fake news sources that were actually classified as fake news...wake up...
Stephanie Harper THIS is why a civil war is coming. Liberals vs the Conservatives. Sad that the liberals can't calm down, accept that Trump is the President, and live a peaceful life without hate, intolerance, anger, racism, hypocrisy, and division. I guess this is THEIR way of "going high" and proving that "love wins". God forgive them for they know not what they do.
Pamela Tabel I am an intelligent American! All that crap you listed I have not read or seen. If you think the left is spewing more garbage than the right you are so wrong! I'm sorry , but I only read Fox News is to see what nonsense is being thrown out there. Some how both sides have to just stop it and get real!
Jaime Gardea If it wasn't for the media there wouldn't be a job opening for national security advisor. "The leaks are real" Donald said but the media is reporting "fake news"🤔 The media serves as checks and balances. We will need them now more than ever.
Eric Kirylo I think Trumps war on the media is a big waste of time and huge distraction from his job. Why should the POTUS have to stoop so low to fight like a child against the media. The media has no power over policy. Its pointless to argue with them. This is just his thin skin and insecurity showing. He should be better then that but he just cant resist and he is giving the media exactly what they want. They love every minute of it.
Dee Thomas FOX is the fake news, hope u report when he gets impeached! n report this - it has cost the american tax payers 10 million dollars in the last 20 days to fly his orange butt to florida to play golf, that money could have been given to flint michigan for there water!
Christina Hitz I remember how 8 years ago I rolled my eyes when Chris Mathews got all tingley. Fast forward and now we have a news outlet, Fox News, who has been and currently is enabling someone who acts more like a fascist dictator than the President of the United States, all the while pretending they and their followers are the true patriots. Watch the video called Don't be a Sucker that our defense department first released in 1943.
Scott Awsum “More and more people are seeing this hypocrisy and they’re not buying it. The American people are not stupid. But the conservative media still doesn’t get it. They are still in destroy mode and it’ is not working.” There. Fixed it.
Cheryl Murillo-Forte It doesn't work on me. Initially I wasn't voting for Trump during the campaign but the media's incessant attacks on him made it unfair and very biased. Clinton was no saint either! It was just the media and the people behind it were afriad Trump would win. They did all that they can to brainwash people but it backfired. And their worst nightmare happened. They lost control and power. The news is still the same until now. I read more on social media than the news channels on TV.
Jerry Balkenbush "Boy, I love reading those WikiLeaks!" #45 said on Nov. 4 at a rally in Wilmington, Ohio "The spotlight has finally been put on the low-life leakers!" -- #45 Feb. 16, 2017
Denise Vanallsburg Trump won the majority of Americans will always support Trump. The media is still unsuccessfully trying to drag him down. It won't work! Lol
Jaime Gardea Uncle Tom. "Donald started his career back in 1973 being sued by the Justice Department for racial discrimination because he would not rent apartments in one of his developments to African-Americans,"
Lisa Boone Bogacki I've also never heard of the majority of these stories. And the few that sound familiar were definitely not in the main stream, and definitely not taken seriously. He does have one thing correct. The American people are not stupid. Hannity, on the other hand...
Christie Carter It doesn't take much now with Google to find the Truth about Both Parties!!! Neither are Perfect by any means.... but History shows Democrats created the KKK when Republicans were trying to free slaves! Democrats support Big Government while Republicans try to give States more power to make decisions for their Citizens, Democrats support Unions that charge fees for Government protection to defend what is already their right as an employee... Don't watch the news... any news!!! Do some research First about Your Party and then decide.... That's what Makes America Great which a lot of you may not know but it's True!!! We are Free to have an opinion and a choice!!! Most Countries do not give you that option!!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸
Allen Hena "If there’s one thing I’ve learned from dealing with politicians over the years, it’s that the only thing guaranteed to force them into action is the press — or, more specifically, fear of the press.” - Donald Trump, "The Art of the Deal", page 305
Selas Kram “You know what uranium is, right? It’s this thing called nuclear weapons. And other things. Like lots of things are done with uranium. Including some bad things. But nobody talks about that.” - President Trump
Janet Shields Step one for Hitler was to discredit the media. • Step two was to silence scientists and government employees. • Hate crimes against minorities grew to the highest in their country’s history. Clashes between parties became so extensive that Hitler ended civil liberties (Step three), giving “law and order” as the cause. Those who opposed Hitler were ridiculed and threatened. • In Step Four wealthy supporters purchased media outlets, employing only those faithful to the ruling party. • In his final step (Step Five) Hitler declared that the only way the country could be unified was to restore traditional values. Minorities including gays, the disabled, Jews, Roma, and people of color were considered “inferior” and sent to death camps for slaughter.
Crystal Pierce-Morales I saw this on another Facebook page and thought I would share. You have two families: “Joe Legal” and “Jose Illegal.” Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California . . . Joe Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes $25.00 per hour with taxes deducted. Jose Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number, and gets paid $15.00 cash “under the table”. Ready? Now pay attention . . . Joe Legal: $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1000 per week, or $52,000 per year. Now take 30% away for state and federal tax; Joe Legal now has $31,231. Jose Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600 per week, or $31,200 per year. Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now has $31,200. Joe Legal pays medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for his family at $600 per month, or $7,200 per year. Joe Legal now has $24,031. Jose Illegal has full medical and dental coverage through the state and local clinics and emergency hospitals at a cost of $0 per year. Jose Illegal still has $31,200. Joe Legal makes too much money and is not eligible for food stamps or welfare. Joe Legal pays $500 per month for food, or $6,000 per year. Joe Legal now has $18,031. Jose Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps, WIC and welfare. Jose Illegal still has $31,200. Joe Legal pays rent of $1,200 per month, or $14,400 per year. Joe Legal now has $9,631. Jose Illegal receives a $500 per month Federal Rent Subsidy. Jose Illegal pays out that $500 per month, or $6,000 per year. Jose Illegal still has $31,200. Joe Legal pays $200 per month, or $2,400 for car insurance. Some of that is uninsured motorist insurance. Joe Legal now has $7,231. Jose Illegal says, “We don’t need no stinkin’ insurance!” and still has $31,200. Joe Legal has to make his $7,231 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, etc. Jose Illegal has to make his $31,200 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, and what he sends out of the country every month. Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after work Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family. Joe Legal’s and Jose Illegal’s children both attend the same elementary school. Joe Legal pays for his children’s lunches while Jose Illegal’s children get a government sponsored lunch. Jose Illegal’s children have an after school ESL program. Joe Legal’s children go home. Now, when they reach college age, Joe Legal’s kids may not get into a state school and may not qualify for scholarships, grants or other tuition help, even though Joe has been paying for state schools through his taxes, while Jose Illegal’s kids “go to the head of the class” because they are a minority. Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services, but Joe paid for them and Jose did not pay... SHARE
Marty Strukelj I watched a a couple Trump speeches. Then the next day the media rolled what he said into something other than what he said. The media distorted it. I've seen them do it more than a few times. Tell the trueth. Don't change it. Reason I believe Trump. The media is wrong.
Jerry Balkenbush "Not only is the current White House team led by an undisciplined President lacking depth or intellectual curiosity, but a President who believes bullying, freezing out the mainstream media, lying to the public, and fostering a chaotic "Game of Thrones" style environment is how you make America great again"
Elaine Rathmann I don't watch, subscribe to, or follow ANY of the lame-stream media in any way, shape or form any more. I occasionally watch Fox News, but even they are suspect. I do have favorite internet public figures and news outlets where I find the true information.
Mary J Thompson I think President Trump's press conference was the best part of my day.. i loved it, like Charles Payne of Fox Business news.... he couldn't decided which part was his faves so he decided on the whole press conference.... me too Charles, me too..........DONALD J TRUMP 45TH PRESIDENT - you go get'em tiger.... TRUTH them into melting puddle of snowflake water.
Rebecca Pierce Toney How about exposing truths... INFO📌 Trump was at Boeing today... Please expose truth about Boeing. This was posted by Robert Reich. I just watched Trump give a speech at South Carolina's Boeing facility where the new 787 “Dreamliner" is being unveiled. Trump said it was “built right here” in South Carolina, and that “our goal as a nation must be to rely less on imports and more on products made here in the U.S.A." He also called for "a very substantial penalty to be paid when they fire their people and move to another country, make the product, and think that they are going to sell it back.” And said he'll lower taxes and get rid of regulations that send our jobs to those other countries. "We want products made by our workers in our factories stamped by those four magnificent words, 'Made in the U.S.A.'" All fantasy. In fact, almost a third of Boeing’s Dreamliner comes from abroad -- from countries with high taxes and high regulations, good wages, strong unions, excellent schools including technical education, and universally-available health care. 1.The Italian firm Alenia Aeronautica makes the center fuselage. 2. French firm Messier-Dowty makes the aircraft's landing-gear system. 3. German firm Diehl Luftfahrt Elektronik supplies the main cabin lighting. 4. Swedish firm Saab Aerostructures manufactures the access doors. 5. Japanese company Jamco makes parts for the lavatories, flight deck interiors and galleys. 6. French firm Thales makes its electrical power conversion system. 7. Thales selected GS Yuasa, a Japanese firm, in 2005 to supply it with the system's lithium-ion batteries. Oh, and the first delivery of the Dreamliner is scheduled to take place next year – to Singapore Airlines. Currently there are 149 orders for it from worldwide customers including British Airways and Air France. In other words, contrary to Trump, the Boeing Dreamliner is made all over the world and will be sold all over the world. His "America First" economics is total demagoguery. We get a first-class workforce by investing in their education, training, infrastructure, and healthcare -- not xenophobic grandstanding.

Jake Paas Wow and public schools are worried about Betsy Devos? Maybe its time to they focus more energy on trying to get rid of teachers like this.
Gail E. Trammell I loved hearing this man on Fox News tonight! Thank you for standing up for truth and for protecting your daughter from that kind of teacher!
Andrew Doddridge Schools should stay neutral on politics. Kids are there to learn and get educated, not to get into politics.

Sara Alvarez As a teacher, I would never cross the line and push my political views on my students. It's just not ethical. Other than in the context of a civics/history/economics class, politics should stay out of the classroom. Period.
Travis Smith We live in a land where a kid is suspended from school for eating a pop tart into the shape of a gun but a teacher with a squirt gun can act out a fake assassination of our president in front of her students and keep her job. My kids will never set foot in a public school.
Mark Wofford Unfortunately, many of our schools, colleges, and universities are indoctrination centers brainwashing students with a failed humanistic, relativistic, hedonistic, leftist, socialist, communist, and intolerant belief system while good moral values, citizenship, personal responsibility, a strong work ethic, and solid academics are discarded in the classroom trash can. These indoctrination centers operating as “educational institutions” are institutionalized propaganda machines spewing out misinformation, untruths, faulty logic, and revised history which is creating students with weak critical thinking skills who are functionally illiterate and unprepared for the real world lacking the knowledge, skills, common sense, and wisdom to be successful in real life. The by-product these failing or failed educational systems are the controllable and brainwashed useful fools and idiots which are used by the leftist and socialist elites and activists within or aligned with the democrat party. These controlled and manipulated useful fools and idiots are sent out to roam in the streets to cause disruptions of the peace, mayhem, and violence as they trample on the rights of peaceful and law abiding citizens who are enjoying their right to peace, freedom, and the American dream of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Debbie Jones Best You don't get to put your political views into the curriculum. You don't get to indoctrinate kids into your personal viewpoint. Your job is to give them the FACTS and viewpoint to BOTH sides and let them decide for themselves. THAT'S how you teach critical thinking. DUH!
Judi Wirtjes There are too many ways that the democrats/liberals are trying to brainwash us and force their opinions. It needs to stop. Keep your politics out of your job or out of your business. The libs have been brainwashing our children for years.
Cathy Mathis I hope that some honest n great investigative reporters will actually look into what exactly is being taught in grades K through 12. I think it may be shocking to see exactly how liberal agendas are being taught. We already know exactly what happens in college !
Jannae Hopper Our public educational system is failing our youth by brainwashing them into mindless, heartless, ignorant sheep. This will result in a further moral decay of our society if we don't start taking responsibility. Raise your kids and stop trusting strangers in doing it for you!
Dania Saucedo An educator pushing his/her political views on their students... so unprofessional, unethical, and plain disgusting! Talk about abuse of power, stop poisoning our kids with your distorted view of the world 😠
Cassie Fauber Jones This is why schools are afraid of Betsy Devos! There's no place for the teacher to share/push his/her political views onto students. We parents must be entwined with our children and their education. And we must share both sides of the political argument so our children will be well-rounded, productive citizens!
Gino Scolari This kind of garbage is why Trump Won. Don't go back to sleep fellow patriots, we have to keep the flames to these progressive pieces of filth 💯💪🇺🇸
Carol Mackey I can't understand why teachers find it necessary to impose their political views on children. They are to teach children to think and learn for themselves; not persuade them to one side or the other.
James John It's called private school... the only choice anymore...public schools teach children how to be wonderfully narrow-minded, lazy socialists... nothing more, possibly less
Ann Streb Shaw I was still teaching when Bill Clinton was president. I did not care for him and would have never written such a problem. Glad this teacher was reprimanded.
Victoria Calderon I find this to be very disturbing. That teacher needs to be fired for taking advantage of adolescent minds. It's simply wrong to enforce your power over a child by mandating that they regurgitate your political views in order to pass your class. #ageoftransparency #fired
Christine M. Drumm As a former teacher, I do know how difficult it can be to keep political ideals to oneself, but we must. It should never be okay to impose our religious or political opinions on our students. Our job is to teach them so that they can make informed decisions.
Cheryl Jeswald Rego it is pathetic the propaganda, and indoctrination going on in our elementary and Jr/ High schools. And, at the same time, they are not teaching U.S. History.
Greg Jewell The daughter of conservative, republican parents comes home from kindergarten and tells Mommy to vote for Hillary. And teachers tell me to lighten-up. It's time to thin the herd.
Cheryl Caruso Good for this Father for speaking up, more parents need to pay attention to what is being taught to their children in the schools today/
David Sandell Teachers don't have freedom of speech in the classroom. Just like I don't have freedom of speech at my job. You want a mouth off with your personal ideologies in the workplace you get fired and rightfully so
Sharon Bangasser McManus I don't understand how schools can get away with this! As a teacher that teaches in a professional manner, our staff was "guided" by our administration as how to best handle the questions students may have during this transition. It was always a message of NEVER imposing or expressing personal beliefs. To me, this is common sense. I stress to my students to be well informed, independent thinkers.
Shawn M. Milburn Tenure or no tenure, it should be an automatic termination if politics are pushed on a student; unless it's a political science class

Martin Smith No nationwide health care plan is going to work until the Costs for treatment are addressed. Drug company sells a drug for $40 a pill in the U.S. and sells the same pill outside of the U.S. for $1 We have to cap malpractice lawsuits, stop ambulance chasers, stop Emergency Room abuse and make everybody pay Something. Even the poor should have to pay a little so they will be less likely to abuse the system.
Allen Hena "If there’s one thing I’ve learned from dealing with politicians over the years, it’s that the only thing guaranteed to force them into action is the press — or, more specifically, fear of the press.” - Donald Trump, "The Art of the Deal", page 305
Harrell Chambless Sr. why is the government involved in health care? I repeat. this was never the plan until LBJ went nuts. Now look folks I am not against Medicaid. Help the poor, okay. otherwise get out.
Ike Morah Nonsense the senator needs to sit down with his colleague and fix the little problem the Obamacare has. It's like you bought a new car, and after few months you found out that something is wrong with it. Will you fix it or buy a new one? Most Americans will fix the car instead of buying new one. We have been electing unthoughtful people to run our government, and it's a shame.
Martin Smith I have a neighbor, gets "free insurance" coverage, the last time she picked up prescriptions I saw the price tag of $838. I said you take all these medications? She said NO, she doesn't like how some of the pills affect her so she puts them away in her closet. Rips off the Taxpayers. Another Sells 1/2 of her food stamps each month and just got a $700 tattoo.
Ike Morah We spent trillions of dollars financing wars, giving tax breaks to oil companies who don't need it, but we can't make sure that Americans, our own people are healthy. If the GOP plan contains vouchers from the government as most of them has advocated. It's still government program or socialism as some illiterate people calls it. Why do we pay more on drugs made by the same company in America than in Canada. It's nuts.
Patrick Gibbs Health insurance is so complicated on one side you have the people who want it free and the other side don't want to pay for the other people to receive it free, how can you sell that
Chad Lumenarcus Isn't it funny how we're the only country in the world without a single payer system, and three most expensive? The only nation where people go bankrupt or skip care because of its expense? I'm sure that's just a fluke.
John Tell That would require insurance regulations, or a government run insurance to compete, which is exactly what the GOP ripped out of the bill 8yrs ago. Haven't heard any proposal from the right on how they plan to fix it.... just complaining about Obamacare, stupid.
Kevin Brooks If Obamacare made your insurance affordable, that unfortunately was accomplished on the backs of others. It shouldn't be that way.
Daryl A. Iverson More fake news. It's easy enough to spot. President Obama didn't call it the "affordable care act." Congress makes laws -- not the President. The name of the law is "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" The reason it's costs went up so much is because of the insurance companies -- but they keep telling you lies so you'll want something that can be so good for you to be taken away so their Rich friends can get richer. Don't fall for it.
Aaron Witman Rand Paul could come up with a better Healthcare plan than Obamacare while taking a nap on a random Tuesday afternoon. He could spend 5 minutes thinking about it, and come up with a better plan than Obamacare.
Susan McCormick It's not just the cost of insurance. It's the cost of office visits, treatments, lab and xray, medicine, etc. All these things are highly inflated. For example, it costs much more to order individual lab tests than ordering a panel. Some labs don't even have panels. 3 or more tests should always be paneled. The insurance companies are being hammered by costs.
Pamela Libonati Government should not be in the insurance business. Go back to pre-Obama to private insurance, people with no insurance still got treated with either charity care or the ones with insurance paid 50.00 for an aspirin, either way it worked all those years till Obama came into the picture. Once the government gets involved in something it always gets screwed up, just look at the DMV! And get those adult children OFF their parents apron strings being covered till they are almost 30 is stupefying! Before your kid was forced to get a job that offered insurance, now they just lay around and be cuddled, not all, but you get the point! Companies also need to stop the GMO'S for our food that is also causing the people to be sick!
Toyeca Robinson I think young people should have the right to opt out of insurance. However with that choice, if they are injured and can't pay for treatment, I think they shouldn't be treated. Just like if they don't pay car insurance and get into an accident they are screwed. If that was the choice they would sign up. Once one of their friends can't get his broken leg fixed because he thought he was invincible, the others will reconsider signing up for insurance. Now I do believe their premiums should be reduced greatly because their risk is lower.
Margaret Heath The problems with heath savings accounts are. USE it or Lose It! We should be able to roll it over year after year.
Barbara Connor As I recall when Obama care was written up, it was like a 1000 pgs and a Team of Lawyers and Doctors could hardly understand it. Probably why they missed the clauses about the rates going up. It's understandable as to why, going over it and trying to change it would be mind boggling. They need to throw that away and start anew; keeping in mind to stay with the pre-existing clause.
John Caroselli I'm not sure if that's exactly true Rand. Liberals don't care whether it's affordable or not, as long as certain people get it for free. On the backs of most hardworking taxpayers of course.
Bill Terwillegar How about the "no plan" option? How about the government get the hell out of the business other than oversight? Allow insurance companies to sell nationally, like EVERY other business can and the problem solves itself. The problem it also solves is the bribes of congressmen at the state and national levels and THAT is what can not be allowed.
Jannae Hopper Nope. I could care less if my neighbor next door has insurance, not my problem. We have to stop worrying about what everybody else is doing. Should I get a bail out from my neighbor when I run up a credit card and can't pay it? No. My credit gets torched and I get punished for not being responsible. People who don't carry insurance deserve the same compassion. Be responsible or risk falling on your face. Stop punishing those who comply in an effort to offset the irresponsible. We've become a land full of hand outs instead of responsible adults.
Mark Johnson If insurance is strictly private, it is impossible for the federal government guarantee lower pricing for anyone. Unless EVERYONE is covered, there is no way to ensure a pool of healthy individuals to offset the costs for higher risk folks. How do you ensure EVERYONE is covered, aka affordable to everyone based on your plan?
Keith Keierleber Simply put-healthcare is not a right, it is a privilege-the Constitution only guarantees Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness-nothing more, so if you want healthcare benefits-get a job that provides them, or pay for it out of your own pocket-NOT MINE!!!!!!
Luke J. Cordero Then why not just keep the affordable Care act! Just build on it. Oh wait... It has Obama's name in it, so no one likes it.
Brian Norberg The second most important job of the President is to bring the nation together, to make us Americans. By defying Mitch McConnell and defending the Constitution. Trump would have become uniter. A POTUS a non partisan one. An American one. The one we need. But, he didn't. If Trump had any intention of being POTUS for all Americans he should have nominated Merrick Garland. That one action would have gone a long ways towards healing the nation and defending the U.S. Constitution from partisanship. He wasted that opportunity. Instead he rewarded 11 months of Republican partisan obstruction of Merrick Garland. Garland replaces Scalia, Trump replaces Ginsburg and/or Kennedy. Balance maintained. Nation healed, and Constitution protected from partisanship. A truly great POTUS leads America, not just his party.
Krystal Ann Woodworth Stop trying to get everyone health insurance, and focus on ensuring everyone has access to health care. Address the real problems.

Nipuna Wanninayake I'm a dark skinned immigrant from South Asia and I support President Trumps plans to review American manufacturing ... According to leftists I must be someone 'oppressed' by the 'evil whites', but US is the most tolerant country I have seen, and I have traveled over 3 continents
Christopher Daniszewski President Trump bringing back the American dream one day at a time! All the while pissing off liberals! So much winning! Thanks President Trump!
Sharon Bebee Finally after 8 miserable Yrs., a President that cares about the American People and not Baraks own lets Destroy America one stupid decision after the next!
Selas Kram “You know what uranium is, right? It’s this thing called nuclear weapons. And other things. Like lots of things are done with uranium. Including some bad things. But nobody talks about that.” - President Trump
Margo Peltzer Schenck Just how will Trump "bring the end of the Republic?" By keeping jobs in America? By bringing them back? By meeting with black officials to figure out how to improve the lives of the black community? By having ILLEGAL criminal aliens arrested and/or deported? By keeping his promises to enforce EXISTING immigration laws? By supporting law enforcement? Yep, the powers that be, and the people who blindly and ignorantly follow them, fear one thing and one thing only: That Trump will succeed.
Christopher OKunewicz You are so right. This man is the best. Isn't it funny how we never had a president in past twenty years or more be positive and do for its citizens what he is doing
Edin Alex Enamorado The "jobs president" tried to bring down a company for no longer selling his daughter's clothing line that is made in China. 😹
Loretta Hathaway Propst Thankful for our President Donald J. Trump. Praying for his leadership, our country, and all of America. Praying the United States of America will truly be "united"--one nation under God. Stay strong and keep serving as you are, sir; we know there will be many "wins" for America because of you and our God. Sir, keep "taking it to the American People." We are here for you. God bless.
Ilona Nemeth Marketello Thank you Donald J. Trump President of the United States for all you are doing for this wonderful country. We citizens need to help make this country great again and it starts with mannors.
Sarah Smith McGrath Yeah! We have people that can assemble parts made all over the world! America-retrain yourself! There is no going back "again"-learn some skills for the jobs of the future.
Yvonne Johnson That's it exactly he gives us hope he helps his dream he dreams big he takes whatever talents God gave him and he multiplied them and now he wants to teach as why is that such a bad thing because liberals make money off of welfare.
Rebecca Pierce Toney How about some facts about Boeing... Stop blindly following everything. INFO📌 Trump was at Boeing today... Please expose truth about Boeing. This was posted by Robert Reich. I just watched Trump give a speech at South Carolina's Boeing facility where the new 787 “Dreamliner" is being unveiled. Trump said it was “built right here” in South Carolina, and that “our goal as a nation must be to rely less on imports and more on products made here in the U.S.A." He also called for "a very substantial penalty to be paid when they fire their people and move to another country, make the product, and think that they are going to sell it back.” And said he'll lower taxes and get rid of regulations that send our jobs to those other countries. "We want products made by our workers in our factories stamped by those four magnificent words, 'Made in the U.S.A.'" All fantasy. In fact, almost a third of Boeing’s Dreamliner comes from abroad -- from countries with high taxes and high regulations, good wages, strong unions, excellent schools including technical education, and universally-available health care. 1.The Italian firm Alenia Aeronautica makes the center fuselage. 2. French firm Messier-Dowty makes the aircraft's landing-gear system. 3. German firm Diehl Luftfahrt Elektronik supplies the main cabin lighting. 4. Swedish firm Saab Aerostructures manufactures the access doors. 5. Japanese company Jamco makes parts for the lavatories, flight deck interiors and galleys. 6. French firm Thales makes its electrical power conversion system. 7. Thales selected GS Yuasa, a Japanese firm, in 2005 to supply it with the system's lithium-ion batteries. Oh, and the first delivery of the Dreamliner is scheduled to take place next year – to Singapore Airlines. Currently there are 149 orders for it from worldwide customers including British Airways and Air France. In other words, contrary to Trump, the Boeing Dreamliner is made all over the world and will be sold all over the world. His "America First" economics is total demagoguery. We get a first-class workforce by investing in their education, training, infrastructure, and healthcare -- not xenophobic grandstanding.
Shannon Schroeder I dream that people receiving assistance have to pee in a cup to receive it, just like I have to pee in a cup to earn it for them. And we both have to pass of course.
Gerardo Alcazar I have a dream, I mean, a very good dream, very very good, it's a red cap, really good, and it's Made in China, they will be worn by my followers, good people, tremendous people, good hats.. 😂
Michael Dayton We used to dream of things and then build them, then the Hate-America Leftists employed their eco-Nazi's and government regulations to stop American progress and now you're lucky if you can build a shed in your own back yard let alone another Hoover Dam.
Coleen Sander Well, as Trump said he had a good time shutting the fake media down at the news conference! I had a great time sparing with the whiners and outta touch posters here tonight!!! Let's do this again, hey! MAGADJT
Jake Johnson The silent majority is loving you. Regardless of the media and weak minded your actions are showing strong. My family even the ones that were not on board completely are impressed with you right now. God Bless America.
William Gill With the money we wasted on war, we could have had free health insurance for all, free energy, free higher education and no homelessness. NO JOKE. And we would have money left over. That's how much war cost. And because we didn't have all that money, we borrowed it and will be paying it back for decades to come. What a waste. What a lost opportunity. Did we get our money's worth? Is building an empire and ruling the world worth it?
Lesley Lloyd As a Trump supporter who has gone to Europe more than the US. Flying from Houston to London was a nightmare on that plane. Yes, I know United decided it would cram so many seats in coach that had us spilling over into each others seats on top of each other, but also the flight attendants hit me on the isle every time with no drink cart and elbows tucked in. Turbulence, even if you are like me that doesn't get scared with turbulence, but frustrated because you can't go to the bathroom and if you could sleep on this plane you are lucky. I was in so much pain from swelling and the middle seat person on top of me hurting my entire body. Love building and jobs in the USA. But, airlines need to bring back decent comfort.
Diane Conroy Has to watch what he says. He is picking winners and losers. Maybe friendships are clouding his judgement. The market will help chose what is bought or not bought.
Bart van Engelen If Trump is really so concerned about American jobs, I wonder if he discussed his opposition to Obama's Iran deal with the Boeing execs. That deal allowed for Boeing to sell for 16.6 billion dollars worth of commercial jets to Iran which Boeing said would support almost 100.000 jobs in the aerospace industry in the US. Trump can do all the photo-ops and speeches, but if he blows up that deal I wonder if he would talk about the jobs he'd cost the country then. http://www.foxnews.com/world/2016/12/11/iran-says-it-finalized-166b-boeing-deal-to-buy-80-planes.html
Lynn Costner Pressley You had a rough week, hey who doesn't the first 30 days of a brand new job, considering the enormous scope of your job, but you are tough and strong, and finish your week with a great big WIN! MAGA 🇺🇸
Andrew Robinson Scottish people say the best way to piss off @POTUS is everyone in the whole world should make video mocking him the way he mocks reporter with disability ( this should be a contest ) I also want everyone's try to be almost like SNL... PS, fox news verified the reporter being mock by Donald trump
Anil Kurian Didn't he just ask the Labor Department for permission to bring in temporary foreign workers to his vineyards instead of hiring Americans. It's amazing this company was able to build this entire plant in the 4 weeks since he took office
André Haermeyer The 787 Dreamliner was actually a collaborative effort, involving many of America's allies ;quite few of whom Trump has already alienated)as well as of many Americans. It is a testimony to the fact that American manufacturing is not and was not dead, but has actually been revitalised under previous administrations. But the only thing Trump has dreamt of is an idiotic $21.6 billion wall. His isolationist trade policies will actually seriously harm American manufacturing, which is reliant on other countries not only fir part of its supply chain, but also as markets for its products.
