“Concerning The Inbox letter about ‘America in need of a revival,’ America has had far too many Christian revivals. That’s our problem. They didn’t work in the 1800-1830s. They didn’t work in the 2000s. Our country was founded on the wisdom and political systems of ancient polytheistic peoples. Maybe we should go back to the old gods.”

“Our sheriff hasn’t used ‘latino discrimination,’ he has used ‘citizen discrimination!’ Stay on it Joe, we need you.”

“I pledge allegiance to the Mexican flag of the United states of Mexico. And to the illegals for which they stand, one nation under the cartels with drop houses and drugs for all!”

“If it looks like a duck, acts like a duck and quacks like a duck: This is not racially profiling, it is good police work. Ninety-five-percent of illegals in this country are of Latino descent; what do you expect law enforcement to look for, redheaded illegal Irish?”

“Although the federal government is charging Sheriff Joe with being biased against illegals, they have admitted the problem is huge. ICE is stationing 50 agents in Joe’s jails to do the checks for illegal immigrants! Fifty! That is an admission by the feds that the problem in Arizona is terribly out of control and our border is non-existent.”

“Newt Gringrich wants Mitt Romney to stop running negative ads against him, even though they are true.”

“Talk about a lousy job. Pity the poor Romney campaign staffers who have to explain what their boss ‘really meant to say,’ week in, week out, debate after debate, campaign stop after campaign stop. They must feel like the cleaning guys that are all lined up with broom and shovel after a big parade who have to sweep up after the elephants and the horse riders. At least the parade sweepers only have to do it once a year whereas the Romney people have to ‘sweep up’ every other day or so.”

“Senators McCain and Kyl and Representative Flake: Do not let me catch you failing to support legislation by Senator Bernie Sanders to overturn the impacts of Citizens United. I cannot name a worse example of legislating from the bench. There is nothing about a corporation which qualifies it to make campaign contributions. Rather it should pay dividens to its shareholders and suggest that they make those contributions. Senator McCain: McCain-Feingold was the best thing you’ve ever done. Don’t give up that ship!”

“Obama has been talking and talking about helping the ‘middle class’. He sure didn’t help us last year. During 2008 and 2009 tax years we were able to add the amount of our Real estate Tax on our residence up to $1,000 to our standard deduction by using Schedule ‘L’. That was removed from the 2010 tax procedure on Nov. 6, 2010 and Schedule ‘L’ has been completely eliminated for the 2011 tax year. Taxpayers that were able to use an estimated tax deduction in lieu of the standard deduction, were able to deduct ‘all’ of their Real Estate Tax in this situation during the above mentioned years. Did your tax preparer inform you of this?”

“The Mormon venter Friday who mocked David Henry’s previous article about Mormons not being Christians stated that since Mormons celebrated Christmas, they must be Christians. To summarize the differences that venter leaves out — but is central to this point — is that the Bible teaches Jesus is the second person of the Godhead who became flesh by coming to earth to make available the plan of salvation. And He is creator of everything in the heaven and earth. In contrast, the Jesus of the Latter Day Saints is an exalted man from another planet somewhere out in space and is the spirit brother of Lucifer. Those two are not the same and both cannot be correct. The Jesus of Mormonism is not the Jesus of the Bible, and thus Mormonism cannot be Christian. They will not tell you that difference at first but instead look you in the eye and assure you that they are Christians too, like that venter is doing. That lie, you can become a god like they say Jesus did, is the same sin Adam and Eve fell for in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:5). It is usually given to a convert much later when it is not so hard to swallow and it is much more difficult for you to back out. There are many, many ex-Mormons around who know this.”
