"To Warren: You got away with it in Utah. You got away with it in Arizona. But you ‘Don't mess with Texas' and, you don't escape from Huntsville."

"It amazes me that the liberals are so bent on spending money they don't have. I just don't get it, but maybe I should give it a try. I want to do some home improvements but I can't afford it. I will just do them anyway, and then go to my neighbor down the street, who I know can afford it, and tell him he has to pay for it since he has more money than he needs."

"It's typical left wing freakenomics for big government lovers like Rod Livdahl (letter to the editor, Aug. 7) to argue for raising taxes on others. Livdahl and his tax-and-spend cronies just don't get it. We don't have a tax problem, we have an out-of-control spending problem. Let's see Livdahl step up to raise his own taxes before whining about raising other people's taxes. Time to wake up and smell the tea, Rod."

" ‘America is being destroyed by "alien invaders" from Mexico and other Central-American countries right before our eyes.' You mean, just like Hitler's Germany was ‘being destroyed by Jews?' "

"To the person that complains about employers not giving the wage info before the interview: You should do your homework on what the pay would be for that position before you apply. Also you should be grateful that the companies want to interview you at all."

"The GOP likes to say that millionaires provide most of the jobs. Really? A recent job search has caused me to review my work history. I'm 43. Of the 17 jobs I've had since high school, eight were government jobs and seven were jobs with large corporations or franchises of large corporations. Only two were mom-and-pop-type small businesses, and I doubt that the owners of either of them were millionaires. It's amazing how many people will believe a lie if they hear it often enough."
