“(Recently) a good friend of ours discovered her brother, only 54, dead in his home in Apache Junction. Obviously, this was terrible shock. Today she discovered that someone had broken into his house overnight, ransacked and trashed it, stealing everything in sight — guns, computers, electronics, a safe, and a new Corvette. You know, people die every day. We’re all going to die. It’s almost ‘natural’ to die. What’s unnatural is stealing from the dead. This drops thieves to a new low. What the ---- is wrong with people?”

“I heard that when Newt Gingrich becomes president he will repeal ‘The Seventh Commandment.’”

“Newt Gingrich says that the millions he has received from Freddy Mac and several other firms for speeches and advice were not paid to him as a lobbyist, but rather as a celebrity. Hey, we already had a celebrity, Ronald Reagan, as our president and that turned out to be a disaster. We surely don’t need another one.”

“What a hoot it is to see ex-Speaker of the House, Nancy ‘Itchy-Palms’ Pelosi threatening to ‘out’ ex-Speaker Newt Gingrich with revelations of his love life that she secretly learned on the House Ethics Committee? Has anyone wondered how the ‘Girl from San Francisco’ managed to boost her net worth from a measly $22 million in 2009 to a whopping $35 million in 2010? Could she be the world’s greatest coupon queen or what?”

“Sure, cattle prods would get those Occupiers moving. Maybe we could resurrect Eugene ‘Bull’ Conners as well and turn his police dogs loose on them, or better yet, let’s call out the National Guard and have them fire into the protesters with live ammo like they did at Kent State and Mississippi State, killing a few. That will put a stop to Americans using their constitutional rights. Or will it?”

“Obama condemns income inequality before beginning 17-day vacation at $3500-per-night Hawaiian beach estate.”

“What these Occupy Wall Street folks need is a central figure to lead them. I’d like to suggest Charles Manson since he has experience getting his fair share of other people’s wealth. Plus, he looks like a typical one percenter.”

“What kind of person calls someone with a disability stupid? At least you are probably an equal opportunity name caller who would make disparaging remarks about anyone who thoroughly researched the issues and came to a conclusion that was at all different from your own opinion.”

Sorry but as a former religious, there is absolutely no concrete proof to any assertions of any religious groups except the history they have written. Gold plates, where are they? It’s a known fact that in the 1830s Smith and his son had access to Indian shamans and their mushrooms that promised visions beyond their meager capabilities. The Ten Commandments disappeared, too. Of course it can’t be proven one way or the other but it is a great manipulation tool of the masses. If there is a God, it would want us to know one truth, not a million (wrong) guesses!”

“Kudos to Mr. Ceniceros of Mesa (Letter, Dec. 7), querying the present American ‘condition’. He’s hit the nail on the head with his comments. In response to his query, one only has to look at our justice systems, federal and state, beginning with the 60s U.S. Supreme Court under Earl Warren and the questionable/liberal decisions that have come forth over the past 50 years. Yes, history does repeat itself.”
