It's about FRIGGIN time these retailers are held accountable for the DAMAGES they cause toRead More consumers. I am not talking about the Fed's imposing fimes of which we the Consumers don't see a penny of either. Why can't these Companies INVEST IN BETTER TECHNOLOGY TO PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING IN THE FIRST PLACE? Just saying.

What a shock!! I've just read a Korean killed his kid for the game. When I read this news, IRead More believe it's time to set some limitation. Should we force the game manufacturer to set the auto shut-off after a period? BTW, the other Christmas, my bro-in-law played non-stop grand theft. After a period he felt he had enough of pizza delivery and want to get some fresh. So, he went out. What do you know, he passed the car in front using the counter-lane! Fortunately, there was no passing car. He told us that his brain was probably still in the game mode. Anyone knows where we could start pushing the game limitation idea?

Its not the games, its the people... I hear hot dogs are the number one food choked on, lets banRead More them and set limitations as it can not be smaller than your esophagus. Maybe we should hold the person responsible for his action and not limit others for his ignorance. People that think like that upset me. I am so sick of this self help, twelve step, leftover hippie generation bullshit! Its not the entertainment, the guns, or the games, its that person. Despite crime rates we have more good than evil people. That's like saying a book is bad because of the title without reading it. Like this comic book for kids called Dead Babies.

Ok so all this security for the marathon, what about the platform of train stations, parks duringRead More lunch, outdoor concerts, parades and charity walks? Give me a break. All this police presence and money spent and overtime is a scare tactic and can't possibly deter someone determined to carry anything out.

Greg, that bond was some piece of work. As a businessman, I would never have taken that deal. TheRead More payback was too extreme. Besides, that is something for the Small Business Administration, not the State administration. What do you think?
Greg Page April 18, 2014 at 03:41 pm
I personally believe that all the investors knew what they were getting into, and if they didn't,Read More shame on them. I've lost on investments, and no one has offered to reimburse me. Our "moral obligation" was fulfilled with the insurance. The insurance company underwrote and accepted the policy, (and our premium money). I agree with Buddy that there are some who don't want to have the insurance pay the policy, as they would then launch an investigation, and heads would roll. However, with the events of the last few weeks, they well may anyway. The original bond was to be used for many startups, not one. All the eggs in one basket is always a dangerous endeavor. And then we get the Gov on TV the other day having to explain to Luke Russet why we're #1 in unemployment and corruption. It's sad that a state that could offer so much, is reduced by the greed of a few.......
Larry Gotch April 18, 2014 at 05:21 pm
Let the heads roll as they may, and the insurance company make us whole rather than raising taxesRead More to fix it. Their problem should not become ours.

We need bomb-sniffing police dogs or military dogs. We also need to make the FBI accountable forRead More their failure to follow up on Russian warnings that Tamerlan Tsarnaeyev was being radicalized. The real jihadist in the family was the Tsarnaeyev's brothers' mother. The Russians knew that but didn't send the video proving it to the FBI. Even so, they told the FBI enough that they should have been on their trail, and the FBI blew it. And why weren't they on top of the former Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan who shot to death three non-Jews in an anti-semitic attempt to kill Jews in Overland Park? Why do we allow so much surveillance of citizens when the results are so disappointing? It's not like the FBI is getting the job done. They miss a lot of really big, obvious targets.

What Rhode Islanders Can Do to protect ourselves about zebras. WE MUST INTRODUCE LEGISLATION NOWRead More As of early 1993 (4), no zebra mussels have been found in Rhode Island waters. However, zebra mussels have rapidly expanded their range and are predicted to invade New England waters. Ultimately, zebra mussels will infest most regions of North America. They could threaten local water supplies and become a costly nuisance to boaters, anglers, and industries. It is possible to slow the spread of zebra mussels into New England waters by becoming aware of how these mussels disperse themselves through human activities. Boaters or anglers may inadvertently transport zebra mussels from infested freshwater bodies to noninfested lakes and rivers. In an effort to control zebra mussels from spreading to Rhode Island waters, take the following precautions after boating or fishing in infested waters: 1. INSPECT and CLEAN any zebra mussels and aquatic vegetation from the boat hull, trailer, anchor, anchor rope or chain, and motor. If you see any "hitchhiking" zebra mussels, scrape them off and discard in a trash can. 2. DRAIN all water from the boat and its components. Before leaving the infested area, drain bilge water, live wells, bait buckets, and engine cooling water. 3. DRY the boat, trailer, and equipment. Allow the boat and trailer to dry thoroughly in the sun before transporting to noninfested waters. If it is hot and dry, leaving the boat out of the water for two to four days will effectively kill the mussels. 4. LEAVE any live bait behind. Bait used in infested waters should not be transported to noninfested waters. Give the bait to someone headed out on the body of water you are leaving, or discard at the boat launch.
