“Two of the new Gilbert School Board members ran on the platform that they were going to trim administrative costs and waste. The first thing they did was try to fire the superintendent. The next thing they did was to create three new paid administrative positions. Is there any hope for the next few years?”

“Everyday as I read the ‘Vent’ articles, all I see is negative, mean, and nasty pieces that are just meant to criticize and/or hurt people as if the people contributing the articles have never said or done anything wrong in their life! Look in the mirror once in a while and let me truly know if you are that perfect! Whether it be a certain individual, politics, religion, the way a business is run or somebodys job! Shut up! It’s OK to ‘Vent’ something positive about these same subjects! Again, look in the mirror! You are not perfect no matter what you may think! I am always just truly happy and grateful that I wake up every morning and I’m still breathing, have a great family, and a job!”

“I’m sorry I haven’t written to the Vent for so long. I’m ticked off about so many things, I just don’t know where to start.”

“There is the Left and there is the Right — and there is the Self Centered.”

“Dear congressmen and women: We sent you to Washington to work. That’s Washington not Arizona. If you are too lazy to do this resign!”

“I thought Marco Rubio would be a major contender for the 2016 election, but he only has the appearance of another Mitt Romney. His hypocrisy is only exceeded by his thirst. The true measure of this man will be his accomplishments for the strife of the people he expresses so much concern about.”

“I’m a Christian, but I don’t participate in Lent, so I’ll continue eating meat as often as I want, thank you very much!”

“Interesting fact, all of the top ten cities in the U.S with the highest homicide rates have a population that is primarily Minorities. So is it REALLY the guns that are the problem?”

“Who are these people that assault weapon owners fear so much? Are they the billionaire employers who threaten their employees jobs for the way they vote? Are they the legislators who attack the right to vote of the most vulnerable? How about those who would pass laws to discourage a persons right to negotiate fair pay and benefits? Before exercising rights under the second amendment one should at least define what tyranny is.”
