“Is there any other nation in the World whose president has sued one of his states to force them to allow illegal alien immigration? Only in America and only with a Democrat president in office.”

“With all the bad press about Chick-Fil-a, just makes me want to patronize them all the more. No more Nabisco cookies for me.”

“There are many more dysfunctional families breeding today than in the past and this dysfunction is becoming the norm. So stop blaming education for the problems because education can only be as good as society!”

“I’m glad Mitt Romney explained to the Palastinians why they will never amount to much. Now I know why our own economy is floundering. It’s our trickle down. Corporations are people to culture! All along I thought it was Obama’s fault.”

“Why do ‘law abiding citizens’ need weapons of war? To protect themselves from non-law abiding government.”

“The U.S. is No. 1 in gun ownership and gun violence in the world, and yet state legislators like our own shake in their boots just thinking about passing laws that restrict the sale of assault rifles and ammunition — instead, going the opposite way by loosening existing gun laws and trying to spread gun ownership on college campuses and in bars. Isn’t there ANY member of the NRA who understands that this isn’t working and is merely victimizing innocent people in the wake of more tragedy? Isn’t there ANYONE in the NRA with the spine to stand up and say, ‘This is wrong, and must be changed?’ Anyone?”

“Notwithstanding Tom Patterson’s assertion, a push for social justice is never ‘misguided’. It may run against the grain of our current mind set: where a person’s worth is equivalent to his bank account; where our legislature reduces state assistance to the poor and transfers the money to the wealthy in tax breaks and subsidies. Why share even a tiny portion of ourpossessions when it is much easier to tell the poor and sick to get a job? (Even though we know that we are experiencing the worst job market in generations). No, no, Tom, extending a hand to our needy brothers and sisters is not ‘misguided’, it is just unpopular.”
