The Vent: 4/22 || 'Coupon Care'; Media bias
Posted: April 22, 2014

“I’m not shocked that our fast food culture would fall for Paul Ryan’s ‘Coupon-Care’ insurance scam. Everybody gets a coupon for Ryan’s plain-jane hamburger. You want cheese? That’s extra. You want lettuce and tomato? Extra money! Remember the old commercial, ‘Where’s the beef?” That’s extra, too. But you do get a tasty bun, according to Mr. Ryan. ‘Have it his way!’”

“The media doesn’t seem to be covering the recent Pennsylvania school stabbings very much. Is it because there’s nothing in the story that promotes the leftist agenda?”

“Leave it to FOX News to classify an obvious terrorist attack on Jewish Centers as a mere white supremacist gone rogue. If this attack had taken place in Israel, FOX would be all over this as Al-Qaida’s doing. A domestic terrorist on American soil kills three citizens and FOX News can’t bring themselves to report the truth. But they will support his right to own guns.”

The Vent: 4/20 || Hypocrisy; standoff; voting IDs
Updated: April 20, 2014 - 1:47 pm

“How do the same people who for years have said things like, ‘What part of illegal don’t you understand?’ now stand behind a guy like Cliven Bundy, who is illegally using public property (federal land) for his own profit? Someone please explain how this isn’t hypocrisy of the greatest kind.”

“Take America back from federal government thugs and Nevada cattle rustler Sen. Harry Reid — as the cowboys did April 12. After a standoff with protesters, U.S. officials put an end to a week-long roundup of a rancher’s 300 head of cattle in Clark County, Nevada.”

“I see in the news that an illegal Hispanic person was busted in Glendale for mass producing forged U.S. government IDs for other illegals. No wonder the election turnouts have been so skewed in favor of Hispanics at the expense of everyone else here in Arizona. This is further proof we need to double check all IDs when voting.”

The Vent: April 17 || politics; Flight 370
Posted: April 17, 2014

“Sadly, over the past 6 decades, I have watched the U.S.A. fall from being the world’s guarantor of freedom and justice to being the old geezer that stands on his front porch yelling ‘You kids stay the hell off my lawn!’ ”

“Holder won’t do anything with the Contempt of Congress citation against Lerner. He has already shown he does not believe in the Constitutional checks and balances and division of powers outlined therein when he lied to, then stonewalled Congress on the fast and furious investigation.”

“For the last five years, I have been saying ‘Oh, Bama’ as a mild form of swearing. Now, I am hearing my husband and the people I share an office with using it! I hear it from a lot of customers, too! Sad that our president has devolved to a dirty word.”

“To date, the biggest news story of this year is the disappearance of Flight 370. This could be the story of the year or even of the decade. CNN has been reporting it to us (USA) and to the entire world where CNN is carried and respected. Too bad some people are bored with it when so many lives have been lost in a great mystery. If and when the mystery is solved, some major and forever changes could be made in the airline, science, political and economic world. Reader in Sunday Tribune Vent fails to see the BIG picture in his small mind and is selfishly bored.”
