Posted on Jan. 26, 2014To the person who dumped their mattress by my dumpster: I owe a small business and am trying to make a living. I now have to pay an extra fee to have your old and dirty mattress removed. Please call a garbage service next time you need a pick-up, or bring it to the dump yourself. (reply)
Posted on Jan. 26, 2014Now that we know the NSA is reading everyone’s emails, perhaps we should all start emailing the Constitution to each other; that way, the Obama administration will finally read it. (reply)
LOUD AND CLEAR
Posted on Jan. 26, 2014John Kennedy was our last great president. If he had been allowed to live, he would have taken the control of our money supply back from the federal reserve, kept us out of Vietnam and regained control of the CIA from elite business interests. No president has attempted to address the real issues of our country since. I guess when JFK was killed, the message was sent loud and clear. (reply)
Posted on Jan. 26, 2014If it’s morally wrong for me to run my neighbor’s life and steal their money, how can it be morally right when I vote for a politician to do the exact same thing to my neighbor with laws and taxes? How does a politician scribbling on a piece of paper or a person pulling a lever in a box alter reality and make an evil act good? In a true free society, legality would never trump morality and equality would apply to everyone. Especially with the ruling class we call politicians. (reply)
Posted on Jan. 26, 2014In response to “DO NOTHING?” Yes, your insurance goes up every year. But has it ever gone up 50 to 75 percent before? (reply)
CHECK IT OUT!
Posted on Jan. 26, 2014In response to “WHERE IS AL GORE?” Al Gore is probably trying to find a cool place to live. The 10 hottest years on record have all occurred since 1998, according to rankings from four top U.S., British and Japanese climate research centers. Check it out! (reply)
Posted on Jan. 22, 2014I am cold. How many days until spring? I am freezing! (reply)
Posted on Jan. 22, 2014In response to “GEE, THANKS!” My insurance has gone up for the last 30 years. Do you blame that on Obama, too? Or the do-nothing Republicans? (reply)
Posted on Jan. 22, 2014In response to “APPLIES TO ALL:” I agree. If I am not allowed to say “Merry Christmas,” or to display a cross or the 10 Commandments wherever I please, be it in public or on government property, because it is offensive to one or two people (or maybe it violates their religious rules or views), then why do I have to be subjected to public displays of same-sex affection if I am religiously offended by it? Shouldn’t the Constitution protect my views, too? (reply)
WHERE IS AL GORE?
Posted on Jan. 22, 2014So now they are saying the sun has entered into a solar lull. Basically, it is going to take a nap. When this happens, the world gets colder. I guess we better all start driving SUVs so we can warm things up again... Where is Al Gore? (reply)
Posted on Jan. 22, 2014In response to “WRECK:” I know just how you feel. Why didn’t anyone warn me about this? All people say is that you will be happy when they are out of the house. My son has been away at college for three years and I miss him terribly. There should be a club we could join of other parents that feel the same way we do. I’m a wreck also. (reply)
Posted on Jan. 22, 2014Recently shopping at a local grocery store, I asked a cashier, “Why aren’t there more cashiers working on a busy Friday afternoon?” The placed was mobbed and everyone was waiting in long lines. I was told that after 30 years of receiving health benefits, the company stopped offering all part-time workers health care and is now making full-time workers part-time workers, so they don’t have to offer them insurance because of Obamacare. So many lives are negatively impacted by this horrible legislation. The problem is not only the rollout, but the legislation itself. “Why is our government doing this to us?” Should be the question we all ask. As people suffer because of Obamacare, Representative Larson and Senator Murphy (authors of this legislation) are silent. Remember, only Democrats voted for this piece of garbage. Let our disgust be known on Election Day 2014 for Representative Larson. Let’s take America back! (reply)
Posted on Jan. 22, 2014Looking for a way to celebrate Michelle Obama’s birthday? ABC News was nice enough to suggest 50 ways. That’s right, they want you to learn how to fawn, gush and drool just like a full-fledged journalist. Taxpayers already gifted Mrs. Obama with an extended vacation in Hawaii, but ABC obviously doesn’t think that’s enough. Of all the presidential administrations in my lifetime, I cannot recall ever being aware of the First Lady’s birthday before, let alone having it shoved down my throat. Hey journalists, have you ever considered doing something besides nauseatingly fawning over the Obamas, like maybe your job? (reply)
Posted on Jan. 22, 2014In response to “NICE TRY:” Depending on the year and where you are on earth, the winter solstice is on Dec. 20, 21, or 22. Christmas is on Dec. 25. Christmas and the winter solstice are never on the same day. Keep saying “Merry Solstice.” These days, people need a good laugh. (reply)
Posted on Jan. 16, 2014How many days until spring again? My body is frozen. I hate winter. Why does it seem winter is so much longer than summer? (reply)
CONGRESSMAN PROTECTING YOU?
Posted on Jan. 16, 2014A hearty thanks to Congressman Joe Courtney. He sent me a personal colorful flyer with the slogan: “To help every senior retire with dignity, I’m fighting every day to protect Medicare and Social Security.” What a guy, he’s always “fighting” for us. What Joe doesn’t tell you is, he voted for Obamacare. Eventually, Medicare will be folded into Obamacare and seniors will face death panels, which will say they are too old to save. Kiss Grandma and Grampa goodbye. Isn’t it nice to have Congressman Courtney “fighting” for you? (reply)
Posted on Jan. 16, 2014Seems absurd and negligent to open schools at the regular time when wind chill is 0 to -15. Kids wait in the dark for the bus to arrive. When something bad occurs, it will be too late. (reply)
Posted on Jan. 16, 2014My daughter is 18 and off to college. I still worry about her all the time and want to fix all her problems for her. How do other parents deal with letting their kids grow up? I am a wreck! (reply)
Posted on Jan. 16, 2014The question for me is not where are my three more months of unemployment checks, but rather where are the jobs? (reply)
Posted on Jan. 16, 2014Imagine there’s no Obamacare, it’s easy if you try, No websites crashing, above us only doctors. Imagine all the people taking care of themselves. Imagine no death panels; I wonder if you can, No one to tell you, you have to take the blue pill. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. One day I hope you will join us and repeal this really bad law. (Thanks to John Lennon’s “Imagine” for this inspiration.) (reply)
