Re: “Hot & Ready: Diggity's doors are now open

Delicious vegan food is one reason why the number of vegans has doubled in less than 3 years. Here's a video to help everyone understand why so many people are making this life affirming choice: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKr4HZ7ukSE

Re: “Cactus Car Wash

Fortunately, I was smart enough to read the sign which states the costs of the services. Crazy, right? I did this even though years ago I may have paid different amounts for various services. Wierd how prices change with each passing year. You guys probably won't believe this (I sure didn't!) but I heard somebody whining about putting a quarter in a Coke machine and-would you believe it-a Coke didn't come out. Anyway, great car wash. Top notch service. Thanks, Cactus.

Re: “Black Lives Matter march planned for Saturday at 2 p.m.

Worst CCP columnist ever?
I can't say that lightly when the CCP has employed not only Tara Servatius but also traitor, coward, racist and moron Jack Hunter.
It's bad enough that Mat Catastrophe constantly states his opinions as facts, but now he doesn't want any backtalk from those who happen to disagree with him. "People like you are why I'd like comments closed on my columns".
What an unbelievable ego this clown has.
And what a disgrace to this otherwise enjoyable paper.
How about instead of closing comments we get to do thumbs up/down on the columns themselves, instead of just the comments.

Re: “Black Lives Matter march planned for Saturday at 2 p.m.

If you really want to make a difference protest in the neighborhood hood were the problems start and at police stations and government buildings. Not in areas effecting honest people. But obviously the leaders directing you like puppets want you to cause harm to regular people, because there is no money to be made on the government that they aren't getting already. So until you really protest were it matters no one will respect the cause. It's a valid cause in a few cases you support but not all. Open up your eyes ask questions why you only protest to impact people not those that make decisions. I will give you a hint, those that you protest are pushing your cause!!! GOOD LUCK.

How un-American. I went to a place like that once, where a guy went on and on about his opinions, no dissent, no questions allowed.
It was called a church.

"And I must have missed the Charleston protest in mats link."

In other words, you can't directly deal with the information I presented you because it runs counter to your preconceived notions and so you have to deflect to a different issue.

People like you are why I'd like comments closed on my columns.

Re: “Columnist: attacks on guns and God, not racism, to blame for the demise of the Southern Democrat

"blacks are inferior and can't be held to the same standards as everybody else."

Joe, it's not that they can't be held to those standards, it's that the standards are often much higher if you are black. Often, blacks must better than whites in order to be allowed to compete on the same playing field. For example, shouldn't black men be able to use 'stand your ground' laws to shoot and kill unarmed white children? That would require holding blacks and whites to the same standard of fear. It's acceptable to "fear for your life" if you meet a black child at night, but unacceptable to "fear for your life" if you meet a white child at night. I hope you are ready for more and more black people to decide they need to get strapped in order to protect themselves.

I agree with Carney, though. The national Democratic Party doesn't give two shits about the South. The money comes from New York and Hollywood and, as everybody knows, these cities are entirely peopled with arrogant pricks. When Howard Dean put together the fifty-state strategy in 2006, Democrats won control of the House and Senate and 2 years later Obama won the White House with Indiana, North Carolina, and Virginia voting for him. As would become his habit, Obama picked a terrible person to replace Dean as DCCC, Rahm Emmanuel, who went back to the practice of focusing on 'winnable races'. And lo and hold, Democrats are now on the verge of losing control of all branches of government in most states (except a handful like NY and CA) and at the federal level.

Great job, dickheads! Mark Sanford running unopposed is disgraceful.

Boss article. Fantastic agglomerate/aggregate. Worthy of a "bookmark".

I'm sure that we–as commenters–could make it even more comprehensive.

Good stuff, Kinsey Gidick.

Re: “Want to keep violent criminals off the street — adding more solicitors isn't the answer

"If an obstetrician can look in your womb and sample an unborn child's DNA and tell if she is going to be born with a crippling physical disability, can't we also figure out how to tell who among the unborn is going to become the next Charles Manson?"

No.

Actually, I have to say that this is an utterly ridiculous question, matastrophe. I don't know if you meant for it to be (if you're being "sarcastic", or something), but it is simply ridiculous; there's no better word for it.

"Or perhaps we need better mental health testing"

Yes. This is a solid statement that studies support.

Re: “Columnist: attacks on guns and God, not racism, to blame for the demise of the Southern Democrat

All you creeps think about is race and how to exploit it. No wonder you project racism onto the people you hate. It's all you have, your hatred and your conviction that blacks are inferior and can't be held to the same standards as everybody else.

@brandonfish: thanks for a rational response to a simple question. It's good to know this type of work is being done. Doesn't get any press coverage, probably not as good for business as mat trolling for hits.

Re: “Black Lives Matter march planned for Saturday at 2 p.m.

@jaxx I can assure you that many community leaders, mothers, fathers, and Pastors work tirelessly to stem the tide of all violence. I've been present at community rallies which address all violence in our communities. Only part of these problems can be addressed without substantive systemic change. As long as large segments of our population live in racially segregated, impoverished neighborhoods with a poor education system, harsh drug penalties, unforgiving employers, a flow if cheap & available weapons, and a prison industrial complex unmatched in the rest of the world, it's going to remain near impossible to stem this cycle of poverty-related crime and violence.

Re: “Black Lives Matter march planned for Saturday at 2 p.m.

@Mommy: what you're "hearing" is not at all what I'm saying.

I SAID THE PROTEST NAME "BLACK LIVES MATTER" WAS INTERESTING BECAUSE SO MANY YOUNG BLACK MEN DON'T SEEM TO THINK SO, AND I DON'T SEE MUCH BEING DONE ABOUT IT.

I didn't come anywhere near saying anything else that you implied. Not sure how you even got there. Congratulations on your upcoming motherhood.

Re: “Black Lives Matter march planned for Saturday at 2 p.m.

So @Jaxx, what I'm hearing you say is that because young black men "kill one another on a daily basis" as you stated... we should not care when others do the same? I'm about to be a mother to a black male and I would hate to think that his life has no meaning or is not as precious as someone of another race's because of what other black men have done or are doing. I'm sure you do not want to be judged solely by what others of the same race have done before you or will do.

Re: “Black Lives Matter march planned for Saturday at 2 p.m.

This is why there can never be an honest discussion about race.

I didn't type the word "most" once, as factory implies. And just who are these people you refer to as "the criminals" that most black people live near?

And I must have missed the Charleston protest in mats link.

All I said is there is a large segment of the black population that doesn't seem to believe that black lives matter, and I don't see much being done to change that, and I get attacked.

By the way, mathole, how effective were those 5 protests you cited in stemming violence? Does walking around in traffic holding up a sign really reach their targeted audience?
