Two years ago i had an experience with Com.Ed I would like to share with you.The power went outRead More during a storm. A day later a Com Ed rep, not a repair crew, showed up and began to look over the problem.I got into an argument with her because she didn't even know which pole fed my block.At three am a tree trimming crew showed up but none of them spoke English! They were looking for the branch that had knocked the power line down.Problem was that there was no branch down.then three days after it went off a real repair crew just reset the fuse that had blown down the line.A simple fix totally screwed up because the ComEd rep did not have a clue.

What is "friendly fire"?
Eric Blair June 15, 2014 at 10:43 am
In this case it’s our own forces accidently firing on their comrades. Not the same as happenedRead More to a genuine American hero who was assassinated by orders of traitor Donald Rumsfeld. This particular Ranger intended to tell the American people the truth about this useless unnecessary operation. Can’t have the gullible American people know the truth, that this “war” was and is nothing but a massive robbery of the U.S. treasury along with being a sick geo-political maneuver designed by the evil neo-cons under direction from the insane Zbigniew Brzezinski and Paul Wolfowitz that were at that time in control of the Administration. That Ranger was Patrick Tillman.

If only Lauren felt this love before this tragedy, things may have had a different ending. SuicideRead More is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Please hug your children, make sure they feel the love and kids; stand up to bullys, bullys are kids who also don't feel loved. Peace be with Lauren's family and friends, no parent should have to bury their child. God Bless.
