billgrr, I wasn't disappointed in your site, as it contained exactly what I expected it to. At least you're consistent in your hyperbolic opinions.

Then let's go back to Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. I do feel sorry for him, his wife, his family, his dad, his mom. Some of the decisions up until they were caught were misguided, no doubt. Who knows when this trainwreck began? It looks like a case of getting found out earlier rather than later. As far as jail time, it'll be determined by someone other than us here at the MDN, and hopefully, it'll be a just decision.

If my house is on fire and I am trapped inside, I will not care if the color of the skin of the firefighter is red, just get me out of my burning house.

Come to think of it, I hardly ever see a firefighter whose skin color is red. Maybe we need to investigate the reasons why instead of bickering about who can take a test. The fire dept discriminates against people with red colored skin. Time to sue there too.

I don't care if the firefighter scored a zero on the test, if they can fight a fire, what does it matter?

All you need is water. If you don't know what water is, and a few here obviously don't know and it shows, then you won't qualify as a firefighter.

How did this go from a congressman spending like a drunken sailor to firefighters who can't pass a test?

By all means, Please report it. Shut down this site, just because it does not fit within your "thinking" and again please do. By the way Bill Garr. One name, I sign in under it and don't change it. I have a Life. Apparently you don't as you are on all day and every day. I just don't like you attacking people for no apparent reason.

Apparently there is no Internet-wide mechanism for pointing out hate speech.

However, I have lodged a formal complaint to Google about the racism and hate speech that regularly appears at this site. I will work to have it flagged and taken out the safe site zone.

If you've had enough of the racist nonsense on this site -- please join me and report it to Google. It does not take very much time.

Lorexxx, the applicants in question are being allowed to retake the exams because a judge "found the FDNY guilty of discrimination after a group of black firefighters and the Vulcan Society successfully challenged the methodology of its entrance exams." The FDNY has fairly solid reputation for actively weeding out minorities from the application process, not just in its examinations but in the actual hiring as well.

Bill Garr you did the same thing to me, using all the same words, and accusing that I was this person and that person. Then you lied about me. Now you are upset about racist remarks, but continue to slap the small women around, because you can. Some people take it and some people won't put up with it.

If you want to read real 'hate speech', this is not the web site that has it. Not even close.

I can direct you to web sites that do, but won't do it here.

You haven't seen hate speech until you go there.

The web sites that have finance and investment content are not happy with President Obama.

Go there if you want to read hate speech. Not because of his skin color, but because of his policies, rather failed policies.

Didn't Jesse Jackson the father admit to spitting on plates of food served to white people when he worked in a restaurant?

Like father like son.

Typical, someone calling us racist. If he was white would you call us racist too?? Racism exist with the one accusing someone of being racist. Quit making it a color issue. If anyone is racist its Jacksons dad. You know the white hating jesse jackson sr

Typical DC politicians with their fingers in the cookie jar! Slap their fingers, sentence them, repeal their sentence, and then they will write a book about it and make millions. Crime does pay in DC. no matter what political stripes you are!

He's not a Wall Street bankster, ergo, he must be punished. It's only 750 grand, so it's not that much.

How much did Richard Fuld steal? John F. Corzine, the former gov of New Jersey, how much money did he lose for investors *hint: all of it* and got off scott free?

If he were a Wall Street bankster, he'd receive a 3 million dollar bonus and a new job with JP Morgan or Goldman Sachs.

He just isn't in with the in crowd.

He has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and that will be taken into consideration. Honestly don't know why the Minot Daily News or the readers would care. What effect does it have? And lorexxx Pres Obama has pardoned very few people.

Wow he is taking baby steps, he is well on his way to being a career politician. Someday with his exceptional greed and ignorance he will be a President of this country. If I were the Judge I would demand he get no Television time over this, it's like notifying the evil people around the world who to get in touch with to do more damage to our country. Didn't Sr. get into trouble for his zipper being open to much.

He and his wife, should serve all of it. But most likely 80% of the sentence. He plead guilty, so daddy should not be able to get him a lighter sentence. But who knows, this government seems to bend over for certain people.
