Tonawanda News — I see where you have published a couple things a couple times in a row. How come? After all you must get a lot of things to talk about in Sound Off with all the things that go on around here.

To the person who believes that Obama wants change, evidently you don’t know the change that he wants, and maybe we can sell you the Brooklyn Bridge, or did you know that pigs fly?

•••

Republicans in Congress finally approved the aid for Sandy and the flood. It’s only because it came out and the public started hearing about it. That’s the only reason they approved it.

•••

I see in the paper a poll about Americans being fat. Well I don’t think they should have a fat tax or anything like that they’ve got enough (darn) taxes. What they should do is cut some of the Congressmen’s wages and let them swing down a little bit. They shouldn’t be telling the people how to be fat or not fat, they should be worried about the people getting killed overseas and the sailors and the soldiers. 

•••

There’s way too many police officers in the City of Tonawanda. It’s time that we reduce the police department, consolidate the cities and you wouldn’t have to pay these overly burdened retirement plans that they get almost full benefits which is crazy. It’s time we reduce the police department, save on taxes — they’re getting over paid.

I don’t own a gun but I feel Americans have a right to own guns. I think they need to make it stricter to get a gun. They should do a medical evaluation of the person, they should do a background check on them and they should make them take classes before they can retrieve the gun and use the gun. But they shouldn’t take the right away from Americans.
