Hey jim everyone of my uncles,everyone of my family,everyone of my friends, especially the one whoRead More was in vietnam who has episodes like he's being attacked and hiding in the bushes, yeah that really happens, then having to deal with the VA hospitals each month "forgetting" to order diabetic medications,heart medications after EACH and EVERY single one of them had to deal with this ...APART from wanting to take their own lives...ALL of them said it was not worth it..This young man is a prime example of not being worth it....Serving to defend country yes...fighting a hitler sure...but know this...this man took his life for the things that were done against his morals.....Just like the rest of them.Listen to your Vets when they speak...dont just hang a yellow ribbon,have some parade,give them a dog.....LISTEN to them when they say things like.."THe war isnt worth it"...."Were not changing a thing it all remains the same"..When they came on Youtube wanting to come home and started speaking out against the war then started to get into trouble for it.....Listen to them when they told AMERICA they are not allowed to VOTE..The very right they are supposedly fighting to protect. Listen when they say we "Americans are just robbing citizens over there and doing what ever they want to anyone they want.....When this happens they do not "Rat "out their fellow soldiers so any actions as a group reflects on them weather involved or not because doing nothing is being involved..so it goes directly against their morals...I have sat and watched vets have flashbacks while fishing,watched vet tear up when telling something that reminds them of the war....I dare not say who or what they did...Lets lust say...I listened when they said after they enlisted they understood..they meant nothing and the whole "go America" was bull..war is all about business....From our soldiers having to sit face to face with other governemts that they know are directly reporting to the terrorists to kill more Americans....I listened when they said they all wanted to come home and that a Government poll guggested that 75 to 85% during the bullcrap "Presidential Elections" and maybe even this Soldier here was supporting and going to vote for Ron Paul which prompted Obama to pass the "Soldiers are not allowed to vote not appear at campaings,nor speak at podiums for any candidate" Then brought a wounded worrier and his mother to speak on his behalf....I almost bet this SOldier was voting for Ron Paul...like his fellow Soldiers...

I watched Hines hospital and what they put some of my friends through...I know every single one ofRead More my vet friends that faught in a war were the ones that told me and convinced me and i Quote.."You can defend America in America we need to protect it from ourselves first" We need to fix whats here first" "All the money wasted wasting time killing people who just come back with the same mentallity year after year we could have America looking like a palace" "I killed people...and all they gave me for it was a medal & a hard time" referring to the VA hospitals.

These service dogs are highly trained intuitive creatures who have the proven ability to assistRead More people suffering from PTSD. I've read the testimonials.

Hey Roy, so killing innocent babies is OK with you, and people who try to stop the slaughter of overRead More 40 MILLION innocent babies since Roe V Wade are A$$HOLES, you are a freaking COWARD!!!

So let me get this straught. When it is something you agree with it is freedom of spech but when itRead More isnt i am not afforded the same freedom. And as far as abortion, i dont consider an embryo a baby until it us born so screw you who think you are the moral voice for evrryone.

Okay, freedom of speech is one thing, but these people truly were assholes, and there's just noRead More other way to put it! They were blocking public sidewalks, many of them actually had chairs in the middle of the sidewalks and were actually blocking people from going around them, one woman I saw actually verbally got into it with someone, and another idiot actually pretty much stepped out in front of my car and almost got hit and almost caused an accident since I was being tailgated. They're jerks, and they definately don't belong along our streets. As a parent and all, I don't want my kids exposed to these idiots!

Their internal communications leave much to be desired. I respect and appreciate their hard work,Read More but the people in "customer service" are always given less info to work with than they used to receive. There needs to be a much better system to communicate to customers what delays may exist and why the do exist. The consumer's deserves better. Of course, we could all switch to solar back-ups, thereby lessening our reliance on a corporate monolith. No, not to replace. Not at today's level of technology. But as an option to power a refrigerator and a TV is doable with some recent advances. Watch it, Excelon. You could become less of a need and more of an option. Keep customers better informed.

If anyone is old enough to remember... This has shades of Mayor Bilandic in '79. One of the fewRead More times a local weather event can be pinpointed as the cause of a politician losing an election. Hopefully, this event becomes another one. Even more hopefully, before someone needlessly dies or is injured.

I'm not aware of any distinction between township and village sirens, I think they are allRead More interconnected. BTW the sirens are meant to warn people outdoors. They are not meant to warn people indoors who have access to TV, radio, internet, etc. The storm was very loud and with the high winds blowing the sound around it would be very difficult for people indoors to hear the sirens.

I think we already had enough warnings. You would have to be from outer space not to know to stayRead More away from the Kennedy expressway. It has been the opening story on almost every newscast for over a week.
