It is very wrong for the union members from Hostess to receive unemployment benefits or any type of assistance from anyone, because they are unemployed as a direct result of their own actions. Bad behavior should not be rewarded.

Well, union members have listened to the unions and rather than choose a decrease in benefits, they chose complete unemployment. They’re really on the road to recovery now. Duh.

The fiscal cliff is about raising taxes and cutting spending. Isn’t that what everyone has agreed upon? What’s the big crisis?

Without doubt, Kris Kobach is on the wrong side of history, and he is too ignorant to realize it. If the GOP cannot or will not exorcise that type of thinking, it is done.

I don’t believe I have actually come out and said it in the past, but President Obama is poisonous to the country.

Is anyone afraid now that Obama has been elected again? The United States of America is no more. Our Founding Fathers are turning in their graves.

Wonder why the GOP lost the White House? Cheating the only GOP candidate who isn’t just another Democrat in favor of an obvious pathological liar may have had something to do with it. Despite the media blackout, people do know about the RNC breaking its own rules in order to exclude Ron Paul.

I am so pleased that our elderly, living on Social Security, were able to receive free food from the Salvation Army for Thanksgiving. However, I am quite sure that most of the other recipients were at Walmart Thanksgiving night spending their welfare checks on crap they can’t afford and don’t need. I am so sick of the so-called poor.

The rich have been getting steadily richer for decades. So, if the rich are the “job creators” and “supporters” of our country, then why are millions unemployed, why are businesses going bankrupt, and why is our economy tanking? There is no altruism associated with richness – only greed and entitlement.

Denying JROTC credit because physical activity does not equal physical education not only constitutes a lame excuse but also represents precisely the type of bureaucratic dilemmas faced by this school district. What is the ultimate goal? To produce obese adults who know how to stay fit but do nothing about it?

Why did we drop the descriptive “communist” from the country name China?
