One thing that is wrong is that a majority of American opinions consider those associated with the Tea Party to be racist.

Why? Because Democrats said so, not on proof or facts

I read every day dummies making comments on yahoo boards "we must end Tea Party racism"

Yet no proof of this ever exists (one dope holding a nazi sign doesn't make it an official association)

Really -- are voters this uneducated?

Yes, and they deserve what the Dumbocrats they vote for

Right was when the country was run the way the founders and the Constitution say the country should be run. Wrong is how it's being run now, where the Constitution no longer matters and the only limits on government are what those who run it can't lie about or get away with, which is becoming less and less.

As a retired war veteran the first story was very heartwarming...

The second story, what would provoke the woman who killed her own children to even think she had any claim to that money. That is just absolutely absurd and that it even has to go before a judge is simply amazing.

Both stories are thought provoking.
But produce vastly different thoughts.

Once when I was in the service and coming home on leave from SE Asia I was given a first class seat from San Francisco to St. Paul Mn. I was flying standby and the boarding person told me to wait until all the other passengers had been boarded and she said that a first class seat was being reserved for me. Made me feel really good and appreciative of good folks.

I had fun - had not been home for over two years. My older sister was getting married and I asked for a couple weeks leave. My folks didnt know I was coming home and I surprised the heck out of them.

IMO - The money comes from lawsuits the fathers of the children settled with Nassau County over claims that social services workers failed to properly monitor Brewer.This is just wrong, IMO. The "fathers"? how many were there? Where the heck were they? Get a woman preggers and then don't come around, what about child support? Did they ever support their kids financially? Then they have the gnats balls to sue the State for neglect?

OMG, seriously?

Regarding the second situation--there are plenty of states that have a "slayer statute" or whose courts follow a slayer rule, where they will not allow someone responsible for the death of another to take from the estate of the deceased. Lots of interesting articles out there about it in the legal literature.
