That's great! Of course, I am making a point that condoms are otc for any age.

newsblogger

Calling my comment snarky is just your attempt to shut down the opposition. You are a true Democrat.. when the truth makes you uncomfortable, attack the messenger and try to belittle them into silence. Truth be told, I don't believe anyone needs this pill. Teach your children better.

Lanivan

Wing - you're in deep trouble! Both newsblogger and myself thought you were calling us snarky!

newsblogger - "I don't believe anyone needs this pill - teach your children better". Really? Be sure and include rapists, pedophiles, sexual predators, and incestuous relatives in that teaching.

Wingmaster

Duh, don't ya think they are the results of poor parenting!!

Wingmaster

Read above newsblogger, my comments were pointed at Lanivans remarks.

newsblogger

okay

newsblogger

A doctor could prescribe these if that were the case.. or are you saying it is okay for those types to continue because.. they can just give the victim a pill?

Lanivan

If you are replying to me (can't tell when you don't specifically reply), not every victim of violent sexual relations or direct sexual harassment/coercion has the means or ability to go to the doctor, the hospital, or law enforcement within the time period necessary for the morning after pill to work.

And your comment regarding democrats and late term abortion is another slanderous blanket statement. If you actually believe all late term abortions are performed on a whim by women who happen to be democrat and just decide they no longer wish to be pregnant, you better start doing some research on the topic. Be prepared - the dire seriousness of the situation and intense grief of the mothers affected is not lite beach reading.

newsblogger

I have an issue with these pills being as available as a pack of gum. Your personal attacks will not change my view point, but then again, I am not a democrat who thinks it is okay to have late term abortions either. (or any abortion for that matter)

Hey lets talk diversity! Muskegon schools were happy they had no fights or shootings!!

Check your article again.....there was a shooting two hours after school let out. I find it amazing and depressing at the same time that it takes a police presence to keep the peace and now it looks like even that didn't work! What a bunch of rabid animals.

Wingmaster

Really is sad. Black on black violence I presume and nobody notices.

LessThanAmused

yep....rather than waste money on patrols why not just put up a fence and let 'em thin their own herd? They wanna act like animals then treat them like animals. Just the fact you need cops to keep peace on the last day of school says a lot, these are kids fercryinoutloud......they will make wonderful parents in the years ahead I'm sure.

Vladtheimp

More fallout from the unbridled racism of Grand Haven?

Wingmaster

Hey Trib, notice how comments explode when the topics/stories are really about things people want to know and talk about!

Lanivan

And it's a slow day at work...

Vladtheimp

What's that?

Wingmaster

Oh sure rub it in! Hope my chance comes to do the same.

Enjoy it, I'm sure you worked hard for it.

Vladtheimp

It will - I'm happily retarded!

But I think we should all consider June 6 and how the greatest generation ensured we would be free from Socialism - National Socialism but socialism nonetheless. Benghazi, Tax discrimination, spying on the AP and Fox News, and now on all of us; the hits just keep on coming, but it's sobering to consider who was lost to keep us from just this kind of crap http://www.youtube.com/watch?hl=...

Wingmaster

Excellent call out Vlad and link. My O my has this country changed. We can't even call our enemy an enemy now without being labeled as intolerant!

http://www.realclearpolitics.com...

Lanivan

And Charles Krauthammer knows a great deal about intolerance....

Wingmaster

Dang double post but now I can delete :-)

Lanivan

And the next time you recite the Pledge of Allegiance, say a little prayer of gratitude for the author, Francis Bellamy, a Baptist minister and a Christian socialist, who was a cousin of socialist utopian novelist, Edward Bellamy. Thank you for your patriotism, Francis Bellamy!

Lanivan

I bet it feels good to write this....Clink! (ever miss it?)

Wingmaster

First half day off in 2 weeks and I'm entertaining myself back n forth with you...getting stale in here, think I better go outside for fresh air!

Lanivan

Geez - I meant me not you. Enjoy! - go out and mow the lawn or something. And don't forget to work on that report.

Took me about 2 minutes. Now when are you going to pull your head out of the fresh beach sand up on 5 mile hill and admit there is some shenanigans going on here?

MaHubah

Truly incompetence/denial that the admin denied extra security on anniv. of 9/11 for terrorist hotbed after requests for such. Obama after all killed BinLaden. Game Over! All is Well! No more terrorism!
Chicago politics in the 21st century with the media turning a blind eye. I don't need a link with facts to prove my point, the facts will come out eventually just like with Nixon who also wanted to maintain power at all costs. Scandal after scandal makes Obama a lame duck already! Only positive thing to come of this avoidable tragedy is that Hillary took a nose dive in polls due to her incompetence, which bodes well for our country come 2016.

MaHubah

And as for SmokingdopeinVan(with Obama), your boy didn't kill BinLaden. Intelligence from techniques which he opposed led to the justified kill with an (oh so proper) muslim burial. Take all the credit with no one else. Not the SEALS, not the American people. Obama: See no evil. Holder: Hear no evil. Rice: Speak no evil. What a circus!
