East Valley Tribune: The Vent

The Vent

The Vent: Oct. 20 || Election donations, stock market, gas prices
Posted: October 20, 2014

“People keep talking about the Koch brothers buying elections. The money they spend is chickenfeed compared to billions labor unions, George Soros and Michael Bloomberg spend. They are the ones buying elections.”

“Given the GOP track record of corruption and racial intolerance in Arizona over the past 20 years, I think that this Republican is going to vote Democrat this year!”

“Just a month ago, President Obama was taking credit for how well the stock market was doing. I wonder who he’s going to put the blame on for how it’s doing now!”

“I am curious; how many of the left-leaning Vent followers are willing to stand up (anonymously, of course) and support the lesbian mayor of Houston?”

“When he was first running for president, Obama said one of the things he was going to do was make sure gas prices stayed low so people could afford it. He sure has forgotten about that promise. However, now that the elections are coming up again, suddenly gas prices are dropping. Did he suddenly remember, or is it more of the Obama smoke-and-mirrors tricks?”

The Vent: Oct. 19 || Ebola, taxes, Redskins
Posted: October 19, 2014

“Sen. John McCain says we need a czar to handle the Ebola response. As long as Congress continues to cut funding on public safety and disease research, we need a tax czar and get some of this offshore money to fight offshore diseases. This defunding strategy is getting old, and looks more like reckless endangerment as each day goes by.”

“Let’s thank our brave Republican politicians for having the guts to cut the budgets of the CDC and the NIH by millions of dollars. The result is rearing its ugly head in the ‘Obamacare-free zone’ of Rick Perry’s Texas. I can’t wait until the GOP has total control of the smaller government they envision. ‘Bring out your dead! … Bring out your dead!’”

“A second person in Dallas has Ebola. Gov. Brewer should quarantine all flights passing through or over Texas.”

“What’s in a name? Why doesn’t Washington change its team name to the Washington Pale Faces with a forked tongue logo on the helmets, just to prove that names can never hurt you.”

The Vent: Oct. 15 || Ebola; travel ban
Posted: October 15, 2014

“It is not enough to take the temperature and ask questions of airline passengers arriving from African countries with Ebola … simply by the fact that there is a 21-day incubation period. A ban on travelers from these countries needs to be in effect until this disease is under control.”

“Now that Ebola has officially reached the U.S., the CDC and doctors across the country agree that the infrastructure of the U.S. health care system leaves little to worry about. Isn’t ‘Obamacare’ a big part of that infrastructure? Or is it a case of putting a price on everyone’s health care except your own?”

“Why do we allow anybody from the African countries that have Ebola outbreaks to travel to the U.S.?”

“Gov. Ricky ‘Hairball’ Perry should send Sen. Ted Cruz into those airports in Dallas to get the fair-and-balanced report on Ebola.”
