    THANK YOU TO THE WOMAN AT WALMART:

    Today when I was shopping at WALMART my car got dented . I would like to thank the woman who contacted management about the accident. A line of carts got loose somehow and hit my car. Without her I would not have been able to do anything. Because of her good deed WALMART contacted me and is making everything right. Thanks again to both the woman who helped me out and to WALMART. There are decent people around.

    In SC you don't have to announce, but I will tell you this... His first purchase will be a sizable chunk of property in the PA mountains. Keep your eyes open for: 1. An official change to the name of the town. I think you know where I'm going here. 2. Olive Garden HQ being moved to said area, boosting the local economy, creating jobs, and supplying all residents with endless breadsticks 3. Tougher jail sentences for restaurants not following strict sandwich stacking structure, and a zero tolerance policy on those who continue to put hot dogs in the sandwich portion of the menu. 4. All shopping carts will be equipped with GPS, delivering a non-lethal shock to anyone taking them outside boundaries set by the business of origin 5. All intersections will become roundabouts 6. Treasure Lake will also be purchased, all structures removed, and the entire property will be turned into one giant baseball complex with striped artificial turf 7. Steve Pompeii will be offered the sum of 1.7 million dollars for the rights to the GoDooBwa debate forum. Anyone who cares to join will be encouraged to do so, including past members. There will be no moderation, no swear filter, and anyone who reports someone else being naughty will have "crybaby" added to their username and avatar. Stay tuned

    I'm Catholic, but I see nothing offensive in a sign that says "I support the Beavers". My gosh, what has happened in this country where a private businessman must cow tow to every person imaginable? What's next? I like the Irish, but no Italians!

    Yes. Get rid of "The View" crew and all the other comedians and writers too.

    Nothing says party like 70 year old burnouts in spandex and full makeup. Wonder if Gene will be peddling KISS Depends for when you Toss and Turn All Night and Pee Pee Every Day

    Again, how does the debate forum reflect on the entire site? If they are reading on someone else's membership, then that's all they have to base their opinion. I'm sure they didn't read all of the threads, either. If I ever showed a thread to someone that wasn't a member, it would be to say "Look at this s***". The problems with the debate forum came from a handful of members. I've accepted and apologized for my role in the decline, but it wasn't like I was picking on some delicate flower, that particular member was full of their own vitriol. If I'm not mistaken, the post that resulted in the vacation had spilled into the general forum, which was where a lot of posts went when they weren't receiving enough attention in the debate forum. There are more than a few here who can't, or won't, acknowledge that they were part of the problem.

    The park is a beautiful place to walk if you are a person who does not want to use the walkway because of dogs and dog owners who do not clean up after their dogs. And it’s a nice place for families to take children to enjoy the playground areas. It’s an asset for the city and it’s too bad vandals have to ruin it for others who appreciate it.

    Next time, maybe add something to your text indicating such. Many of us conservatives are spoken of as we're the ones not tolerating others of differing race, creed or color, when in fact those calling out "so called infractions" are the guilty party.

    I'm impressed that the organizers were able to time the walk from South America to coincide within days of the mid terms

    I can say that lots of people whom I know and work with do not come to GD anymore because of the previous debate forum and the political posts. In my opinion, there are other sites that people can use to share their political opinions.

    Agree------there can be no debate without civil discourse. It all becomes too personal, etc.... There is no excuse for anyone to have a problem with rational discussion and disagreement...

    Sorry, I just had to post that without a forum on debate, the insults already started. We all need to get it together, politics are not the be all end all.

    No. If we can't interact with a measure of civility, civil discourse, it just wouldn't work. It's been tried all over the public forums. The banter escalates to a waste of time. History repeating itself. It's a free country alright, with the rule of law. Imagine a country with zero laws. It would be The Purge 24/7 365. IMO Steve was a most tolerant moderator. He banned no one. They finally banned themselves. If we want to preach personal responsibility, we need to be willing practice some.

    City needs cameras installed, not only in the park, but at Showers Field, and a few places through the downtown.

    Say what you want, but I enjoy the fact that "It's right on the tip of my tongue" is an obsolete phrase. Now it's "Hand me the iPad" Case in point: I've had this problem of things getting stuck in my head all my life. When my cousin and I were teens, we were talking about the movie "The Ten Commandments" and started talking in Pharaoh's voice. My cousin said "What was that guy's name?" I knew it, but couldn't remember it, and it drove me absolutely insane. I couldn't stop thinking about it all day. It would almost come to me, then vanish. I kept walking around saying "Moooozessss", trying to trigger the memory, but it never came. As soon as I got home that night, I called my grandfather who finally said "Yule Brenner". I felt like the weight of the world had been lifted from my shoulders. No more, though. Hand me the iPad

    Agreed, and the burden is on the people to understand the difference between news and opinion. Very few here know much about who is who and less about what opinion they have voiced to governing entities.

    I'll probably become an ignorant SOB in some people's mind when I say this, but this is such a mess that no matter what is done people will not be satisfied. There is no reset button on life that undoes what is done. I just have a problem with changing the law after the fact to make someone feel good about the sins of society. I believe it is a slippery slope to start down and don't believe it will fix anything in the past. Change the law going forward and I'm all in. Use the existing law to punish those we can to the fullest extent possible and do everything we can to make sure these things don't continue. Today it is the Catholic Church. Tomorrow it could be the Boy or Girl Scouts. Maybe the Peace Corps or a missionary group. Human nature being what it is we don't know where the future will go, but that's ahead of us. We can't cure the past, we can only hope we do better in the future.
