There are a lot of auto manufacturers recalling cars due to defects. Can we recall Congress?


I think we need to return to political positions being strictly part time and volunteer-based, except for president. His salary can be equal to the country’s average income.


We have elected our first black president. In 2016 let’s elect our first excellent black president. Ben Carson and Condoleezza Rice are the best candidates of any race. Let’s urge them to run, and then fight to elect whichever wins the primary and save our nation.


Instead of paying for a company or the hardware to back up my data and personal information, can I just use Obama’s spy network and personal gestapo, the IRS?

Has anyone seen the city’s street sweeper? The west side needs it now.
