Tonawanda News — This is for Mr. Obama and all you gun haters. And Bloomberg and Cuomo and all you gun haters. I am not ever gonna give up my guns. I’ll give up my guns on one condition; you give me a portable laser. A handgun laser. Then I’ll get rid of my guns. You give me a laser instead, then I’ll get rid of them.

I’m watching Rock Center on television and they are talking about Jose, who has become an engineer. He is undocumented. Well they’re using undocumented instead of saying illegal. And then they have a Marine, but they’re all here illegally! They can’t get a driver’s license. Well their parents should have known better. They should have come in legally. They are saying it’s such a waste. Well what about the waste it is to the rest of us that they have come in here and taken the jobs. No matter how you slice it they have done something illegal. They have to start over. A fine, a penalty isn’t good enough because things are going to be taken away from our children who are here legally.

It just shows you that you can get away with murder in the United States. But get caught with a little bit of weed and you go to jail for a long time. Something wrong with that system.

At the end of the year you’re gonna wish you had Sarah Palin as a president instead of this goof. This guy has done nothing for you Democrats. What do you think he’s gonna do in another eight months? You Democrats are really gonna find out aren’t ya? Especially if you own small businesses. The taxes are gonna come down on you like a hammer! Like you woke up in the twilight zone. If you think Obama is that good, you don’t know what a good president is supposed to be like, do ya?

  • GUEST VIEW: What young people aren't learning in college The results are distressing to say the least. A recent survey found that only 17 percent of college graduates â€" graduates! â€" knew the effect of the Emancipation Proclamation, just 42 percent knew the Battle of the Bulge was fought during World War II, and not even two in five could identify term limits for their senators and representatives.

  • mug - adamczyk.jpg ADAMCZYK: Kenmore is a village made of bricks Buffalo and surrounding environs have brick buildings galore, often in the process of repurpose. Whole neighborhoods made of brick await development, redevelopment, gentrification, whatever wand will be waved at them to make them function again. Structures here tend not to be razed; they fall down occasionally but typically simply stand and wait.

  • leffler, scott.jpg LEFFLER: Justice is blind -- and deaf and dumb I've always been intrigued by the concept of justice. I say concept because it really seems more theoretical to me than practical. One man's justice is another man's nightmare.
