    According to the latest forecasts, Tropical Storm Erika, while predicted to hit Florida, is only supposed to do so with maximum winds topping maybe 60 miles per hour, which is the equivilant to a lower class severe thunderstorm or even a weak "bow echo" storm. But as it seems, emergency officials seem to be acting as though Erica were actually going to hit Florida with winds topping 5,000 miles per hour and waves up to a mile high. Basically, they have declared a state of emergency for Florida. I live in Fort Myers, in a one-story slab-concrete apartment building some 12 miles from the ocean, and I certainly am not scared of Erika.

  • Why did it seem when Dylann Roof did his massacre, conservatives wanted to talk about his mental illness, but......?

    Best answer: First off, conservatives believe being gay IS a mental illness, and they're not exactly fond of non-whites either; remember that none of the Republican presidential candidates would comment that Roof's massacre may have been racially motivated, even with all of the evidence found within hours of his arrest.

    Both of these murderers may have had discontent with the "opposite" race, but one guy killed a bunch of strangers and the other killed two people with whom he had worked alongside, which leads me to believe that Roof didn't care who he killed and Flanagan was very specific about who he shot (the lady shot while being interviewed at the time of Flanagan s shooting was just a bonus to him).

    I don t think tighter gun control will stop things like this from happening every other week, but there needs to be more thorough background checks, especially when there is a history of mental illness or irrational behavior. There are enough loony bats out there with more guns than anybody could possibly need in one lifetime, but the extent of their craziness is that they still think Obama is a Kenyan-born Muslim who wants to enslave white people, and that alone is not enough to commit anybody to a padded cell.

  • Agree or Disagree? There should be a law that will prosecute a cat owner for animal abuse & neglect if their outdoor cat is found dead?
