Big oil makes about 3 cents profit per gallon while the government confiscates 62 cents per gallon. Maybe big government should reduce the amount it steals and give the American people some relief from soaring gas prices.
President Obama can criticize Republicans for saying they will reduce gas to $2.50 a gallon, but at least they have a plan. His only plan is to watch basketball, play golf and have parties at the White House.
Never miss a local story.
That Sarah Palin continues to believe she has any place near the White House re-affirms her delusion is to the nth degree. The fear that sent shivers down my spine during the 2008 election is tempered only by the fact that nearly four years later, John McCain is still alive.
The Republican candidates are vying to see who can be most like the Taliban in terms of women’s rights and human rights, while still trumpeting their Christianity. Voters, beware.
Should our new state song be “Hate on the Range”?
An example of absolutes being redefined in today’s culture: When someone tells you that he or she is going to get married, you should say: “Congratulations! To a man or a woman?”
Politics are like an iceberg. Most of what goes on is beneath the surface.
It is time to reinstate the draft. But include men and women, and this time no deferments.
If you only work for money, you’ll never have enough. The only way to live well is to live for a purpose larger than ourselves.
Our obesity rate climbs daily. Let’s take sugary, unhealthy snacks out of our schools. No candy (even as rewards), no pop (even in the teachers’ lounge). Give apples decorated with eyes and a smile (raisins). A lot will go in the trash, but that is part of retraining our youths.
It is sad that parents don’t teach their children to respect other people’s property. While walking home, some elementary school students decided to pull apart our blooming daffodils. I hope they enjoyed them, because now no one else will.
I thought I led a boring life until I saw the crowd waiting for Cabela’s to open its doors. Unbelievable.
The high intensity of activity at a casino is inversely proportional to the quality of math education in a community. Alternatively, it is a reflection of poor work done by the tax man, leaving too many people with too much disposable income.
It will be a sad day when everyone who wants to go to Old Town for entertainment has to be stopped and go through metal detectors before entering.
As a senior citizen who uses a walker, I would like to sincerely thank everyone who helps me by opening doors and holding them for me. May God richly bless each one.
