Vent #4: Those people didn't "loose" their houses, they did lose them.
You can lose something that is loose, so tighten the loose item so you don't lose it.9 months ago
Really? Do you know anyone that bothered with Bird Flu or Swine Flu immunizations? I don't. What I really think is that the over stated news of the possible impact has died off and we see that there really was not much of a threat after all.
A new paradigm for showing success, blow a possible situation out of proportion and when it does not come to pass, state that you prevented it through education and small actions that really had no impact. I wonder if the Global Warming nuts could use this?Apr 27, 2012
@first venter - It seems that you are contradicting yourself. Overturn means to stop it, and in your second and third statements you are in support of it. Make up your mind.
@sixth venter - It is obvious that you don't do math well. Only filling half a tank twice as often (because you are driving the same amount) means they are getting the same sales. You actually have to drive less to make this work.

I think most of the debt comes from offering aid to countries and then forgiving their debt without paying it off. We track it as our debt, thus our debt grows in leaps and bounds.Sep 8, 2011
First Venter: Who cares who is running on the Republican side? Obama will win no matter who runs. Why do you think all the real candidates are bowing out before anything begins? It's is because a second term is assured. They are all making other excuses, but the real reason we will have a lame candidate is because it makes no economic sense to run a losing race.

2nd venter regarding Israel: When the President is wrong he needs to admit it. The Prime Minister is right. "Never again" will Israel submit. Read up on Israel's history and watch the video of the Prime Minister's speech. (it is on youtube) he makes great points and Congress agrees with him. Obama had to back pedal, because he was wrong...May 26, 2011
At least the ruling makes it clear that businesses are not required to cater to those too lazy to learn our language.Jan 24, 2011
Wow progress in Gilbert! That was unexpected. I would have though this water tower loving town would pony up the cash to keep their rodeo park.
Hopefully the county will do something nice with it.Dec 13, 2010
Now if they would get rid of that silly 25MPH zone in the middle of town, they could improve traffic even more. It's funny that you can go faster on a residential road 1/2 mile to the east of downtown, than you can on the wider and better signaled road.
We just want to get through Gilbert, we don't need to be forced to crawl through downtown to see the city council dream of being Scottsdale.Dec 6, 2010
The fact that the State government bet on the outcome of two propositions to base their spending plan on means these people really do not have a clue.
How about eliminating non-essential things like assigning our tax dollars to sports teams, light rail and public TV stations.Nov 4, 2010
