OK! I will be sending it in to you - as "Glad It Ended" ;)

Sad but true. When I was a kid, you could not shoot nor own a gun until you passed a "Hunter's Safety Course" at a local shooting range. One was taught resposible firearm control and safety. ( and they might have been checking you out for mental issues also).You were not allowed to obtain hunting license until you passed. Why would anyone want a high powered firearm for anything else? What happened?
It will always be Sear's Point to me, but I'll call it whatever you want for free tickets.
Will our name have to be published?
where exactly is this free healing?
Start your naturist journey now! It is a natural style. Americannudist.net - the best blog I've stumbled on and is really good for know more about nudism. Check it.
Can't wait to hear the answer to #2 and #5.
I happily volunteer to be on the receiving end for the next banana cream pie in the face shoot.
I'd rather have a newcomer than career politician.
Really enjoyed this article...looking forward to seeing the play.
There is much more to this story. People die and lives are ruined when power and greed corrupt law enforcement and the media. The PD has failed to tell the truth on many things for years, now it will only get worse.
Will the alt. media have the backbone to dig deeper?
I am a Raley's customer & I've followed this story closely since it's beginning. As far as I am concerned, the UFCW is almost entirely at fault in this situation. Not the workers, the union itself. If they had protested & picketed & continued to picket every non-union grocery store to open in the Sacramento area, Raley's would still be competing on a level playing field. No company can survive if it is paying double the amount that it's competition pays in wages.
Because of liberalism and Obamas reoccurring laws/policies/themes regarding "Taxing the Rich" , promoting socialism instead of capitalism, and pushing ObamaCare [healthcare] through, this is why businesses and corporations can no longer afford to continue their businesses as they have been in the past and MUST cut their costs NOW. They are in "business" --not a charity. If you voted for Obama and you are picketing, what else did you expect? If you're asking yourself, "What does this have to do with Raley's replacing my good quality healthcare with crappy healthcare?", you do not understand what you voted for when you supported Obama. This is just the tip of the iceburg for the next four years. Educate yourselves, please. It is not the fault of corporations that they must cut costs. I have been a business owner and I have been an employee. It is not the responsibility of an employer to pay a grocery clerk a wage that is commensurate with say, a doctor. Minimum wage [just like Social Security] WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE LIVED UPON. Lowly jobs are supposed to be a stage in one's life ...on their way to obtaining a more skilled job via an education.
It is a shame that people WITH a job are such ingrates. My family is doing everything we can to survive. My family member has no benefits at all. And he takes care of the disabled elderly, supporting those who have given to us. When I go to the store to buy something to support my family, YOU are standing in the way and you're not even working. Go back to work, grow some hair and deal with the challenges we all deal with. Spoiled. I admire the Raley's employees who cheerfully help despite the challenges of wage and other compensatory means of sustenance. Face it, there are people with a hell of a lot less than you and wearing a smile because it takes more integrity to work (meaning not standing around holding a sign while your peers are inside actually doing something to help the customers that support you). Keep it up. Next time you confront me with your fliers, I'll be that much more there to support the hard workers actually seeing to the needs of customers INSIDE you've not managed to annoy away. Four words: GET BACK TO WORK. Be like the rest of us and buck it the hell up. Don't bite the hand that feeds you. Because if you drive its customers away, then in your shortsight you're driving yourself out of a job. Nice going. And to all you I enflame, go ahead and hit that red button below. Because that is what I'm doing every time you confront my space going into the store to support YOU and MY family. Really, hit the red button, but it won't keep me from supporting my neighborhood store and the kind people who helped me inside after a long day of my own work. Be grateful for what you have. Amen.
I'm just a costumer, no skin on the game but I Just took some Starbucks to the picket line! Between corporate profits and living wage and benefits for their employees, as a costumer, I side with the employees. Mr.Teel I go to your stores because the quality of your produce and because your employees give me superb costumer service, that's your competition edge! What you cannot afford is to lose my business and that is what you are doing right now.
Here's something to take a REAL CLOSE LOOK AT: http://www.bay-ship.com/uploads/4/0/3/3/4033527/ozarklady1.jpg
The Teel family "boat".
I am in the Union and who just happened to vote against and disagree with the majority opinion to strike, hence the anonymous lack-of-identity postings.
Sure is is easy for concerned citizen to run it mouth, let me guarantee you something mr know it all, and why not put our real name on the thread coward, I have worked in the grocery business as a service clerk, to manager, and it is easy to run your mouth an say it is a unskilled job, well I am here to tell you that you have no idea what you are talking about. There is not enough time to tell you just how skilled these people that work for these top tier grocery company's are. They order, stock, display, clean, and service the public with great skill, with very tough working hrs and conditions. You must be talking about Walmart people when you say non skilled. Come visit a save mart, or raley's, Safeway, and spend a day or two talking to the people and see just what they do big shooter.
