Re: “Editor's Note

Here's an interesting observation for the editor; the issue is dated the 12 of December and yet an advertisement in the paper's header is for concert on 10 December. Nice job!

Re: “Danehy

jlm713, the implication for both the Republicans and Tea Party is treason. Meanwhile the consistent comments how great the Democrats are and how bad everyone else tells the entire story of Tom's narrow-mindedness and bigotry. If Tom were to remove his head from his ass and read something other than the DNC and White House talking points, he may have a chance at making an informed statement. As with the rest of the "liberal lemmings" they are afraid to do any research because they would discover how wrong they have been for many years.
LouisWoo, you may want to read something other than the revisionists' history and look at facts, your ignorance of the FACTS is appalling.

Re: “The Skinny

Buffy, you are correct. Half Mohawk on my father's side and a quarter Oneida on my mother's side.

Re: “Danehy

Tom, one final thought before I close out. If you believe the Tea Partiers are guilty of treason, maybe you should settle in with a copy of the Constitution. Once finished you will discover the only party guilty of treason is the Democratic Party and its blatant disregard for the Constitution they swore to protect, defend and uphold. The majority of Tea Partiers want us to return to the founding document rather than continue down the path to socialism. I have always found you an interesting read, even though I continue to disagree with your very narrow perspective on the world and politics in general. A man of your education and experience should be better rounded in you opinions. Just because a conservative says something, doesn't make it wrong and the same goes the other way, just because a liberal says something doesn't make them correct. Reality is both sides have their agendas and are fairly much in lockstep. We need some thinkers and folks who will represent their constituents rather than the lobbyists and donors. I became an Independent voter because both major parties continue to say one thing and do another. The Tea Party representatives went to DC to return us to the Constitution and became entrapped in the same political jungle that has existed for longer than either of us can remember. When your fair haired folks, Obama, Pelosi and Reid, publically state over and over again that they will not negotiate or compromise, they become the obstructionists.

Re: “Danehy

CW13, I don't let the narrow minded bother me too much. I used to be that way. I had a mentor tell me in order to broaden my mind and see different sides of subjects, I should read, specifically the books folks told me not to read. I found by reading a wide variety of material, liberal, conservative and everything I could get my hands in, I learned to tell the difference between what folks want you to believe and the facts.
One of my favorite quotes came from a very strong Democrat, D.P. Moynihan "You're entitled o your own opinion, but not your own facts."
It is very sad so many of his own party cannot grasp the logic and simplicity of the statement.

Re: “Media Watch

Too bad Vanderpool wasn't charged for his crimes. The story should have been edited to remove any reference to the clown.

Re: “The Skinny

Raul should be tried for treason and removed from office. This country is a nation of laws. ALL laws should be enforced. If you are here illegally, return to your homeland and immigrate the legal way. It is funny how many of the jobs outsourced from this country went to Mexico, yet it is never enough. If anyone believes folks who have broken the laws of their homeland and our country are going to suddenly become law abiding citizens probably shouldn't be allowed to vote. The illegal population have been stealing from the American taxpayer through attending public schools and universities, medical treatment, stealing jobs, not paying taxes and law enforcement; and yet they want more. Amnesty, no matter what else you try to call it, is wrong and continues to send the message, as it did under Reagan, come on over we forgive you your crimes. For five hundred years my people have dealt with illegal immigration and now we are the poorest of the poor.
