Tonawanda News — Today is August 4, I just tried the North Tondawnda police department and the phone still doesn’t work.

•••

They are going to be sending these children from Buffalo to the suburbs, including Tondawanda to go to school. You know I hate to think that my tax pay is going to these children that don’t even live here, and I would like to have my taxes reduced.

•••

I would like to know how come the federal government is making $51 Billion profit this year, off the backs of our college students. $51 Billion, that more than Exxon makes in a year.

•••

I totally agree that the police should be drug tested. I would like to see the results in the newspaper.

•••

People drive like idiots, leave 15 minutes early.

•••

This is close to the tenth time I have called regarding North Tondawnda’s police department not having their phone working. Do the people of the city understand that they can’t call the police?

•••

Obama take a lesson from Putin, he’s trying to show you how to have a backbone.

•••

Hi, I think it would be a great idea to have one of those food trucks down at Gatewood park. It would be so nice to sit down with a hot dog and a glass of pop.

•••

I just heard that Hollywood may be coming to Buffalo. You know we have a beautiful city, we have a lot of historic buildings, we have a lake and of course they want to come here. Although last time they came here they were very cheap. We thought we would make some money with them here. Being in our restaurants and going in and out of our stores. Well they didn’t eat in our restaurants, they brought everything in their trailers, so it wasn’t a bargain for us. If they are going to come again this time, put something in the contract so we get something out of it.

•••

The universal tax that you see at the bottom of your phone bill, aren’t you lucky for paying all those phones that are given out? To all those people who don’t deserve them. I think its time that we end that program, really fast.

•••

I don’t think its right for what we are paying for on our cable bill, for Time Warner. 

•••

Come on back Time Warner cable, we want more money out of your pocket. I’ve been cable free for a year and a half. I saved almost $2,000.

•••

Well I guess Obama’s foreign policy is blowing out of the water, so much for our backbone.

•••

Why is the president out playing golf now? I think he better hit the ball around with one policy first, or let Putin show him how its done.

•••

Mr. Cuomo, what happen to our minimum wage, when is it going to go up, when’s it going to get caught up with the cost of living in this country. You’re the governor, why don’t you do something?
