“Hang it on your ear, Charlie (Charles Wahlheim, East Valley Voice, Tuesday). I already have my $600 spent.”

“Democrats won’t let us drill for new oil; we can build power plants, according to them, but yet President Bush has no energy policy. Go figure.”

“The venter who thinks that our invading a defenseless, poverty-stricken nation — with no air force, navy or WMD — is the reason we haven’t been attacked since 9/11, has fallen for media propaganda. Iraq never attacked us; it was bin Laden — next country over — who used 15 men from Saudi Arabia. How has killing innocents in Iraq done one whit to bring our country security?”

“Hey, Venter (Friday): If the Tribune was full of positive stories, there’d be nobody reading it except you and me.”

“Something positive for a change? How’s this: The nurses at the telementary part of the Chandler Regional Hospital are outstanding employees. Their dedication goes beyond and above what they’re expected to do. How’s that for positive?”

“I was walking around Tempe’s Kiwanis Park lake today when a duck approached me, quacking. I said, ‘Sorry, duck. I don’t speak duck. You need to speak English.’ It just kept quacking. I said, ‘Dude, I speak English, not duck!’ But he kept quacking, so I walked on.”

“I spent two very rewarding years teaching English to Spanish-speaking people. I don’t speak Spanish. Anybody can do it; they’ll train you. So get off your butt, put your money where your mouth is, and stop complaining and teach them English. Do something good.”

“I’m betting that the snowbirds stay in the Valley so we won’t be taken over by the Californians, who are trying to make us into another California, and who complain about everything.”

“For the Venter who will be going to Brownsville next year because they have a ‘Welcome Texas Snowbirds’ sign. That sign does not apply to you. (It’s) welcoming Texas snowbirds from (Texas). It doesn’t apply to snowbirds from Minnesota or Michigan.”

“If the snowbirds are the best thing to ever happen to Arizona, how come we’re still in such bad financial shape?

“It’s springtime, snowbirds! ‘Spread your tiny wings and fly away …’ ”

“Arizona comes in dead last in growth of personal income. The problem is too many snowbirds and not enough illegal immigrants.”

“Who needs the millions from the winter snowbirds when we’ve got photo-radar.”

“Photo-radar isn’t about the money — it’s about the children.”

“So according to a venter, we now have a fast-food drive-through lobby who keeps the legislators on their knees with their enormous influence? I love The Vent — I always feel smarter after reading it.”

“Go ahead and close the drive-throughs to everybody except the handicapped and women with a carload of kids that don’t have to take them out of their car seats.”

“Apple must be scared now that Microsoft has the nuke. … Oh, that’s Robert Gates. Never mind.”
