Wow...you guys are nuts. And I am conservative......a "kid" did something he should notRead More have. A parody doesn't harm other people like he was doing. I do not think anyone would want this "kid" to do it to them and their family. Teach the young man right from wrong w/ the proper punishment.....and chill out people....geeezzzz.....

Bob,I don't where you come from maybe russia, Iran I know the leader over there did the same thingRead More to his people. We are not the mayor or police chief, don't take the job if you can't take what comes with it. I am sure the Mayor said to the incumbent, I can do this job better then you, trust me vote for me, not everybody! the kid did not trust him saw who he really was. the kid is a hero, he brought the true colors of the mayor out, and the kid was wright. Now he got to go. and the police chief with him.

Bob... If someone said I was smoking pot with a prostitute I would have to sue them for defamation.Read More That is the proper punishment. And that is what we are trying to explain to you. He didn't yell fire in a crowded theater... that would have the potential to harm other people. They mayor, judges, and police were overzealous at least, or acted criminally at worst. I can't imagine how you think it's acceptable for the police to raid someone's house over a satirical twitter account... this is not Nazi Germany.

This must be a tax. Because if it was a penalty, the ACA would be unconstitutional. Yeah, you'reRead More right...it's a penalty.

Baaa, said the sheep. Change your W-4 for 2014 to have the govt withhold as little as possible.Read More Claim 20 dependents...whatever you have to do to mitigate your losses. because the law also states that the penalty or the delinquent premiums can be paid, in part or in full, by your tax refund. Thus, for poor families, the govt. has also taken steps to eliminate the earned income credit. I guess the upside to that is that there won't be any more $10k/yr non-tax payers getting $4k tax refunds, but its sure no upside for them. Simply don't put yourself in a position where you need or expect a refund; bring it home with you. How can ANYONE defend against the 'UN-Affordable Health Care Act?' Answer: You're not SUPPOSED to. This is designed to sink the listing ship and finish off the dollar. Only then can the NWO roll out the new electronic, biometric, all-seeing-eye currency with GPS and Supply Usage Monitoring as standard features. The purpose of Obamacare has nothing to do with insurance or health care. It's about the final step in closing the Ponzi scheme of the current reserve banking system.

The New World Order wants enough space to put its own marks on its own. But I assure you, the realRead More mark the are concerned with is the one that will be a biometric device on your hand or forehead which will track every breath you take, every cake you bake; they'll be watching you. And since a soldier signs over his will to the US Govt, a subsidiary and supporter of the New World Order, they will the first to be chipped. How ironic.

Keep polishing that TURD Catherine , "If you like your plan you can keep your plan PERIOD"Read More Catherine what are your copays, premiums, subsidies, and deductibles on Obamacare in comparison to what your insurance now? Did you even comparison shop for this story? If you did interesting you left it out.

Having lived on the east side of Tosa and now a resident of the west side, I can't agree more withRead More the need for sidewalks and safe pedestrian walkways. Sidewalks connect neighbors! When you see the same people walking in front of your home, you may be more apt to start a conversation with them and get to know who they are. This is one of the wonderful elements of neighborhoods with sidewalks! On the westside you rarely see families out for the casual evening walk, or teaching their children how to ride a bike. What you see are speeding cars, a few walkers with bright red vests to alert traffic and irregularly placed corner street signs that are a hazard to both pedestrians and vehicles! while its easy enough to know who lives next door to you, it's more difficult to know your surrounding neighbors because you rarely see them. Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't the city own a certain amount of footage in the front of your property? They have the right to plant trees, replace curbs, etc for the betterment of the city. The homeowners who say the sidewalks will desecrate their properties need to realize safety should come first. Finally, maybe the City of Wauwatosa should take a lesson from Elm Grove and Brookfield by providing safe pedestrian pathways on the busiest streets at the city's expense. It's time we make our neighborhoods safe for our children, senior citizens and property values by adding a safe walking and biking environment!

The person opposing this is an idiot. Sidewalks and bike paths (and jogging paths) are what youngerRead More people are looking for. Installing these will definitely raise property values in all parts of Tosa. I just hope the bike paths are rightly colored like kin the picture and not the lame white lines I've seen installed around the city.

I attended the bike and pedestrian plan the other evening. As an avid cyclist I would stronglyRead More support any cost effective plan that can make the roads safer for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers alike. I feel that parts of the plan should be reconsidered, particularly the aspects that specifically impact residential property. I agree that sidewalks connect neighbors and strengthen neighborhoods - I enjoy the fact that our neighborhood has sidewalks and are used by runners, walkers, etc. The sidewalk expansion aspect of the plan would be shouldered entirely by the residents of this area. Their properties would be effected in many ways including loss of trees and destruction of landscaping. The people who attended the meeting and spoke against installation of sidewalks expressed that they purchased in this part of town due to its rural nature. They don't want to pay for the sidewalks, they don't feel that they are needed in their neighborhood and bristle about all of the perceived negatives that come with them. I feel that the bike (and parts of the pedestrian plan) could be more palatable without including the sidewalks in the residential neighborhoods near 116th street. If the people who have to pay for the sidewalks don't want them, remove them from the plan and let the rest of the plan proceed.
