"Get ready for a media blitz about how cruel it is to slaughter horses. The HSUS, PETA and other left wing groups never mention the flip side: Abandoned horses starving everywhere in the United States. Horses were raised for years for meat in this country in all of the Western states."
The readers of Mike McClellan’s recent piece on the opinion page should be asking Mike why he has neglected to include some facts that do not support the re-election of progressive candidates. Mike neglected to inform you that the Dow exceeded 14,000 points in September 2007 after the Democrats took control of the House and Senate and handed control of the financial markets to Barney Frank and Chris Dodd. As a result of the expertise of these two and the uncertainty of Obama’s election, investors pulled back and the market swooned.

In a letter from tea party member Bill Sandry, we are asked to believe that the Glass-Steagall Act, which separated commercial savings banks from Wall Street investment banking since 1933, was repealed by the likes of favorite tea party targets Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and Charlie Wrangle. It didn’t take five minutes of research to disprove such nonsense.
I asked this question of Josh Romney (Mitt Romney’s son) when he spoke at our tea party meeting last year. He promised to send me an answer but I have not received one. I have asked this question of the Romney Campaign headquarters and the Arizona Republican Party headquarters. None of them will even dignify my request with an answer. So I am asking the public. Maybe someone will know the answer. What is candidate Romney’s position on restoring the Glass-Steagall Act?
“It’s depressing how bad Americans have become. A big percentage of our citizens openly root and pray for the complete downfall and destruction of our president. Why do we want our president, and in turn, our country to fail? Is that what it means to be American these days?”
There many ways to solve the credit crisis without the $800 billion bailout. One way would be to temporarily suspend the rule to mark down mortgage securities to present market value. Nobody knows their true value anyway.

"Regarding the article on the ferret that attacked the baby: It makes me angry that this poor baby has to live the rest of his life with only a few fingers.

I think they should have their child taken away from them because they were not there to protect their 4-month-old baby."

Most of our current economic woes have been precipitated by congressional meddling. This is factually confirmed for many Americans, and eventually will be proven to all Americans if news media will be so candid.
“Our government is a joke and a failure. They can’t control marijuana, so they legalize it. They can’t stop the cartel, so they provide them with guns. They can’t control our borders, so they give them amnesty. But they sure can control cheating, stealing, lying, covering things up and protecting each other, it’s called executive privilege.”

Some things to keep in mind: on Oct. 9, 2007, 11 months before our “economic crisis” occurred (that was actually created), the Dow hit its highest point ever, closing at 14,164.53. After that, the wheels fell off.
