Judges are torturers and murderers too as is evidenced by all the people who are later freed.Read More They're politicians which is wrong.

Sounds like these federal 50 guys are getting their training and personal transaction skills fromRead More the IRS (Obama's Disgrace). An admonishment and the chance to pay for the product is definitely the way this should have been handled. Hey chief, report Monday for some retraining on common sense.

John B has to be a lib because he thinks backwards. If this guy intentionally refilled his sodas atRead More regular intervals, then fine, make him pay a reasonable penalty, which is perfectly justified if he did do something wrong. But, JB is defending a KGB-style operation, here. This is what the Bush and Obama (and quite possibly, Clinton) administrations got into motion. And, of course Obama is taking it to the max. Our entire government needs to be completely cleaned out, reduced in size and replenished with real people - not the Muppets!

Santa Cruz is a great town EXCEPT for ALL THE BUMS, DRUG ADDICTS and BIKE THIEVES. I would not voteRead More for Santa Cruz as "the happiest town" until these issues are resolved.
Freda Salatino April 17, 2014 at 10:17 am
In that case you probably also wouldn't vote for San Francisco, which has similar issues.Read More Remember, we're not voting for anything here. CreditDonkey.com is merely assessing cities as "happy" based on the ability of their inhabitants to both live and work there, not the ability of their inhabitants to live undisturbed by panhandlers. (As for bike thieves: Stanford is rife with them. :->)

I've lived in 3 of the listed "happiest" cities - and have never been happier than my 23+Read More years in Santa Cruz - though I do admit I have to work over the hill to survive my love for this town.

Horses should not be nose to exhaust pipe on city streets. That is cruelty and the horse had hadRead More enough.

A horse and carriage ride in a park, fine. But not on busy, crowded city streets. It's cruel to theRead More horse and dangerous to everyone else. I'm with the NYC mayor on this one.

Poor horse. I hope someone equine rescue unit will relieve him from his present circumstances andRead More either give him a good home or find him one.

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?

The disease came from China! Aids came from Africa, other diseases come from Mexico but yet we letRead More people flood to this country and they bring those diseases with them!

Hey," No News in Natick" ( D Penta} Good idea, don't click if it's not local news. TheyRead More are almost out of business now, let's put them over the top. What little local news you get now on Patch, will be non-existent.

This happened years ago in Little Falls, NJ when a child walked out of his house and into theRead More traffice on Route 23 and was killed.....what is wrong with parents? You go to the bathroom you take the child with you!!!!!! Lucky his Gardian Angel was watching over him!
