    These are the stories about Veterans that should be getting national news coverage but they never do. This sort of thing happens every day but unless you look for it you`ll never see it. Semper Fi, carry on!

    You know what, I commend this Iraqi immigrant. He came here wanting the American dream, saved and invested his money here and built a business. Hell he`s even trying to learn English.

    If all immigrants were like him, instead of trying to sponge off our government, we`d all be better off.

    Same could be said for non-immigrants. I`ve seen a guy buy crab legs with an EBT food stamp card.

    Pooptart: Yeah, I`ve seen similar suspicious EBT purchases, but I don`t like the idea, that some people have, of dictating what can and can`t be bought with them food wise.

    Most people I know use them frugally, including myself. Unfortunately eating healthy is expensive and eating on the cheap is full of carbs.

    It is good to see the true spirit of America standing up to idiots. My faith in human nature is regrowing.

    Little does everyone realize, that rock was probably meant to intimidate the Irani restaurant next door. ... see what I did there? George? Dick? I`m looking your way...

    What a great story. This is the kind of thing that never gets broadcast at the level of whatever next thing we should be afraid of. Given the opportunity, we should all show this kind of solidarity, it goes a long way in the affected persons life and builds strong community.
