Comment: It appears that the IncrediMail people are hi-jacking PCs. Here
is my story which is similar to 100's of others: I opted to try the
IncrediMail offer... (my mistake!). After less than 3 hours I gave up
trying to install their stationary. I went to uninstall the components
that did download and found that it cannot be done! Period!! Something
called "MyStart.IncrediMail.Com/" has taken over my PC. I have had experts
look at my PC and they say it is the darnest thing... they can find no way
to remove same. Check the web, this problem has been reported for over a
year now. People should be warned. I have tried contacting IncrediMail and
get NO reply at all! My PC is nearly useless now. I cannot receive emails
at all anymore. I am about to buy a new PC due to all this. Can you
research and warn people of this situation? I don't know who else to plead
my case to. I am beyond angry!

Comment: It is unbelievable to see how people can be led by their noses.
Of course you have who want to beleive ANYTHING bad about our President.
The only time I saw something of this sort is after the first World war
and veterans wanted pay promised them.The government refused and the
veterans occupied the park in Washington and the then president uttered
the kind of remarks now attributed to President Obama. The republicans are
really desperate and first in character assassination.

Comment: I was reading about the Abduction of a Wal Mart Employee.. Well I
have worked with Wal Mart now for almost 17 years and let me tell you the
security that we or any Wal Mart has is Zero... Totally you go to a Wal
Mart and see what they have in Security they are normal men that make the
mimumim wage or maybe some what better .. The security camera's are mostly
fake.. What do I mean by that some are fake..They are mostly not working
or they only reach so far.. Futher more we are asked to park out past the
store so customers can park close.. Wether or not its dark,snow and ice or
a hot summer.. its very unsafe!! The police that says that its a false
what that lady says happened it a FOOL cause it happens all the time.. We
get fights, we get dope,we get stalkers,we get thiefs , we get even sexual
activity in OUR PARKING LOT, so for any one that works for Wal Mart or
customers YES they should be made aware of the surroundings fo any BIG
MAJOR retail store its not as safe as they want you to BELIEVE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sounds like any ordinary store to me.

Normal men on security (most LP are 'normal looking' people so they can blend in).

Fake security cameras (beats me whether it's true, but maybe they're there for dissuasion, rather than recording).

Staff can't park close - this is normal everywhere, the customer comes first.

Real career-driver here, huh? Walmart for 17 years. What a go-getter.

Wait, you mean WalMart security staff don't really have super powers?!

So, if a crime occurs across town from a WalMart, we're SOL?

Comment: Bush didn't ask a single question during the final
government-wide briefing the day before Katrina struck on Aug. 29 but
assured soon-to-be-battered state officials: "We are fully prepared".
After the hurricane was over, he shows up four days late.
Thanks for nothing

You didn't ask any questions either. And you waited four years to bring this up. Thanks for nothing.

Comment: It seems obvious that Pres. Obama has done so many things that
fail to impress the voters of this nation, (those for or against his
administration,) the resultant facts point out his 'seemingly'
anti-American views stem from his 'not being truly an AMERICAN.' The
'BIRTHERS' organizations may just be CORRECT in their suspicions
...anyone willing to concede this? To DEMAND PROOF?

Too many huge amounts of money push the opposing forces which boast that
he IS QUALIFIED, and face it, American voters are fast being separated
from any cash they once had. The average American seems to see that we
are going DOWN but are at an impasse... 'financial and/or political' to DO
ANYTHING about it. 'THE POWERS THAT BE'RULE...better known as ONE WORLD
ORDER...

None of these facts are RUMORS. We walk in the shadow of these facts, day
by day. TEA PARTY PEOPLE, PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS, SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS.
PASTORS...SPEAK YOU MINDS, and then ACT. FREEDOM IS WORTH
DEFENDING,,,,RIGHT HERE, TODAY.

Comment: Just read your article on reading the healthcare bill. You
explain it clearly,and thank you for that.This is a very scary situation
we are in. How did America get to the point of being taken over by
Washington,and we losing our freedom? My husband gets upset with me when I
try and show him what is going on,as he says we can't do anything about
it,as Washington is now in control.If there is any place to sign against
this socialist acttion going on,please write to me.I wish I could write
what I really feel about those in charge,but I had better not. Thank you
again,and keep me posted.

Comment: What about New Orleans??? Bush was busy in San Diego giving
John McCain a birthday cake so that his staff had to make a DVD to show
him what had happened there! And what about ignoring a little notice in
late August, 2001 which stated: “Bin Laden intent on attacking the U.S.” …
by using airplanes to hit buildings.” This may not be the exact wording,
but it’s close enough. Anyway he didn’t bother to go back to work from
his vacation.


Of course you’re aware that Bush II spent 1/3 of his presidency on
vacation … the record for ANY other president

Comment: Let me tell you all that shop at target. Your a freaking fool.
Dumb, dumb, dumb.

They are a french based canadian operation. They can take their parlivoos
and wee wee's and drop dead.Those lying cheating, greedy, stingy canadians
called gnooks. They lie, cheat and manipulate. They have more money than
anyone and God.

They make you spin wheels around don't even tip you.. I don't want
anythiing from them, nor will I ever do anything for them.

Now AT&T is another slime ball, piece of shit operation. I hope some
alqueda group takes them out. No sympathy on my part. Fpl is another
scumbag ripping off asshole.
Comcast, Verizon are thieves liars, cheaters and whatever else they might
be that puts them in the same class with raggedy hoes.

For all the people that ripped me off. You had better hope I come after
you or meet you alone somewhere. I will mess you up real bad. You don't
know me or want to get me started.

Because I can get real ugly.

So all you people who think you got over and ripped me off, cheated, etc.
I am coming after oyu, and I will find you. If I get oyu it won't be
pretty.

Clean up the mess, ATT, Comccast, fidelity investments or else.
No more playing these screwed up games. Be straight fromthe hip or you
won't know what a real hip is.

Now for the asshole we have for governor kiss my grits.

I think they had better hope they don't meet you alone somewhere - much like the guy who having been overtaken by my then G/F followed us home, hammered on the roof with his fists shouting "Come out here if you NFBSKing want some!" We didn't NFBSKing want some (I suspect "some" was an unpleasant thing - hard to be sure, maybe he was offering us a cup of tea and a biscuit) so we kept the doors locked until he got fed up and drove away.

Is it usual for stores to tip customers? It isn't here. I always thought tipping worked the other way round, generally from a customer to service staff. But since you weren't wanting anything from them, and that's what you recieved, no harm, no foul.

They both lost NHL teams to more southern American cities, so it's an easy mistake to make.

Comment: tHE ARTIUCLE ABOUT aMERICAN IMMIGRANTS YOU SAY WAS WRITTEN BY THE
tORONTO sTAR IS TRUE BUT ALSO TRUE IN THE usa. mY MOTHER DIED BEFORE HER
FIRST SOCIAL SECURITY CHECK. mY dAD NEVER COLLECTED A DIME FROM THE FUNDS
DUE TO THE LAW. hIS PENSIN IS $55./MONTH. Social Security is $1080/mo.
BC/BS suppliment. payments/mo. are $330. His eight RX/s and eye gtts. for
glucoma are over $120./month. His taxes to live in his own home are over
$3,000/yr. His car is over 10 years old. HE is NOT eligible for any
assistance. I've worked in public health 30 years. I've helped with his
finances for 42 years. I know how much HUD assistance is and welfare to
mothers on welfare + mecicaid. PLUS special assisatance by every
ORGANIZATION FROM Jaycees to LIONS. Plus having worked in plublic health
I watched Vietnam immagrants receive diaylsis? Now there not Citizens of
USA but they quify HOW? SSI, welfair, medicaide but not Catholic
charities who brought them here. That was 1983 thank you very much. So
don't tell me the article is not true to the USA> I've worked as a
professional RN since 1970 and have contibuted to more free care funds
than I can count and now that I facing retirement who's contributing to my
care??? There will not be enough health care professional around to take
caree of the baby boomers. You site is true. So I'm giving you the real
facts on senios in the USA.

Comment: Hi, I usually don't let articles upset me, but this one is the pits. I
e-mailed everyone in my book telling them, "It's about time we tell Publix
that we are Americans." It's just too bad that I asked my kids to send me
Publix gift cards for Christmas. I only have one left and that will be the
last time they see me unless they retract this garbage. Perhaps we should
tell them to move out of the United States and go do their business with
the Muslims.
