Glad I am a vegetarian. The crap they inject the animals with, hormones, antibiotics, vaccinations,Read More and the the crap these animals are eating have all have all been treated with toxic pesticides, and other chemicals. You are what you eat.

There is always a reason for a price-increase - I can't remember ever reading about a reason for aRead More price-decrease. It's possible no one else has noticed this. Isn't capitalism wonderful?

people stop going to work a couple days they would bring those prices down pretty fast.
Donald Snyder April 9, 2014 at 08:10 am
usmcboi, And what about not getting paid for it? Doesn't make much sense, does it? The betterRead More solution is to vote all of these Congressmen out who keep pulling this stuff. Isn't it ironic that Nancy Pelosi was standing at a gas station complaining about the high prices of gas when George W. Bush was in office and gas was around $2.50 a gallon but you don't hear a word from stretch face when the gas is near or at $4.00 and her beloved Barak Obama is at the helm? Could it be she has some sort of hidden agenda? There's a shock. I don't trust any politician. They lie through their teeth when they are smiling at you. That goes for city, state and federal. All are a bunch of crooks. You try and elect someone who wants to get the budget down and manage it and they get laughed out of the polling places. You voted for them, this is what you get.

there are no jobs, they're hiring vets, i'm a "vet" too bad I was too mentally ill toRead More "serve" what a joke, hire vets, hire everyone, everyone needs a job, quit being so fascist.
Linda Walshaw February 20, 2014 at 12:26 am
Good riddance! Someone should tell "Papa" Doug that the "best content andRead More information" for consumers is UNBIASED fair investigative reporting, NOT a personal one-sided political agenda. What happened to freedom of the press? We may not all agree, but unless we have open honest discussion and reporting of both sides of issues, voters cannot make informed decisions or resolve anything.

Just think how much more money they could make if they would lower their entrance fee just a bit andRead More allow more families to afford going. Then they would sell even more soda and food since there is nothing around the park for competition. I stopped going to Disneyland, Safari Park and Sea World because of those reasons. Even the year pass is getting out of hand. Just greed.

I'm curious. You saw Nancy Pelosi hanging around a gas station with reporters when the gas pricesRead More were under three dollars a gallon blaming George Bush for raising prices and hurting the American people. Now it's almost $4 and you don't hear a peep out of her because a Democrat is president. Why is that?

Francis Soyer: Point of information if you will. When one is going to install the new LED light bulbRead More which would be the preferred choice? The MiracleLED Un-Edison 60W Equivalent Frost or the Samsung A19 60-Watt Warm White. From the knowlege you demonstrated above I thought I would ask an expert.
Francis Soyer January 30, 2014 at 07:27 am
Vincent - Honestly I'm not too familiar with either product. Neither is an "industryRead More standard" name brand. Samsung is obviously know for their electronics, I don't know if they are actually manufacturing their LED's or using somebody else's, but Samsung generally has good products. MiracleLED, unknown??? However I did a quick search on both. Samsung: 10.8 watts, 810 lumens, 27,000k, 15,000 hrs, 130 degree beam angle. MiracleLED: 5 watts, 500 lumens, 27,000k, 30,000 hrs, they claim "360 degree lighting" but do not list an actual beam angle, but it would certainly be much greater then the 130 on the Samsung. I would look at application first. Can you see the bulb in the fixture you are putting it in? If so the Samsung's heat sink is very visible and if it were in a glass fixture that I could clearly see the bulb I wouldn't want to see the Samsung bulb, I would pick the MiracleLED even though just by first appearance the Samsung looks like it is made better. I think the only application I would use the Samsung would be in a can light as the light output is more directional especially if I needed more light as the Samsung puts out 60% more light. Both seem to be priced at about $16 each. The more recognized LED name brands are Cree & Nochia, also, GE, Phillips & Sylvania make them as well. I like the "Cree 60W equivalent soft white (2700K) A19 dimmable LED light bulb", sold at Home Depot & Lowes.

Someone mistakenly posted to the Buckhead Patch and now every time someone responds to someone elseRead More via their email, it goes here. Respond through the Royal Oak Patch website to get it back on track.

Stan - u should check your view settings. It seems like your comments contain a **** load ofRead More periods.
stanley seigler January 27, 2014 at 05:58 am
RE periods...PATCH could eliminate the periods if they would format the comment section to recognizeRead More paragraphs... ......................................................................................... apologies if periods annoy ...they are an attempt to recognizes paragraphs ......................................................................................... anyone, any suggestions? would '+++' be better??? ......................................................................................... BTW not sure if 'T' is 'bustin my whatever'...but i have no idea what view settings are or how to check them...

Just another Obamanation. A disgusting president.
Stephen D. Clark January 18, 2014 at 08:03 am
Baloney. The "disgusting" president was the one who falsely alleged a threat to theRead More national security of the United States in order to dishonestly justify the Invasion of Iraq, which condemned 4,486 American armed forces members (http://icasualties.org/) to futile deaths and sparked a conflagration that has consumed the lives of what has been scientifically estimated as well over a million Iraqis (http://www.globalresearch.ca/new-analysis-confirms-1-million-iraq-casualties/7950).

don't expect employers to call you back. most managers are busy and they can forget things. callRead More them a few days after the interview. good news is their are jobs... if you want to work retail for 8 bucks/hour. who can live on that? hard to not take it personally. I applied for a driver at pizza hut... was turned down via email, no meeting, no interview... I have lots of work experience, no criminal record, no accidents or points... no drug issues... how can they turn me down based on a resume and email? my age I'm guessing.

Jamie, I completely support spending tax payer dollars on audits! It is a small price to pay toRead More ensure that the Americans are not getting robbed via acts of fraud. I work in government, at the state level. I personally know of fraudulent hiring practices that have occurred within our agency, including someone stacking the deck by having two family members of a job applicant seated on a job interview panel. That is blatant corruption. Thank God for "snitches"! Such corruption is even more likely where profit is involved, thus the reported misuse of H1b visas. Audits to prevent fraud and corruption are needed. Yes, they cost, but in the long run, it is money well spent.

How about not re-electing any more incumbents? Remember the D.R.I.P campaign? Don't ReelectRead More Incumbent Politicians.
Sun Tzu January 24, 2014 at 12:31 pm
Sorry folks but I just don't think it's fair to burden future generations with the debt ofRead More quantitative easing. I starting selling of quite a bit of my stocks for more tangible assets and most likely with sell of a fair amount more next week. I wish the best of luck to all of you.
