Tonawanda News — Does anyone know why no one has ever developed the wooded land on Zimmerman Street? Is it because of pollution from Durez?

What I find amazing is that many of the local middle class people I know are voting for Romney. The guy who would have let the auto industry go bankrupt. The guy who wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act that benefits the middle class, students and the elderly. The guy who buys and closes companies that employ middle class people. The guy who is surrounding himself with neo-cons who want to start another war in Iran. The guy who already wrote off 47 percent of the population with his comments about a certain group of people not voting for him.

I cannot believe the audacity of some people. I just returned from a local North Tonawanda grocery on Sunday morning. My cart was next in line waiting to put groceries on the belt. An old man actually had the nerve to take my shopping cart with my infant inside of it and move it out of his way at the cash register so he could go first. It is a bad state for this city when old men cannot even respect little children. Old man, I take comfort in the fact of what goes around comes around.

I am a senior and yes Romney will definetely have my vote. No need to start budgeting when we have always done that. In case writer hasn’t noticed health care cost has risen dramtically in the last year under Obama. I am a senior who is more worried about my children and grandchildren’s future. I am also disgusted at the fact that this president and vice president were in the situation room real time watching and knew that four Americans were in harm’s way and did nothing, I repeat nothing, to save the lives of our ambassador and three others. Instead, the next day his administration blamed it on a video, then he flew to Vegas for a fund raiser and an interview. Why is the press not covering this? The press is just as culpable in my eyes for covering up whatever he wants them to. Doubt this will ever see Sound Off, but the press should be ashamed of themselves. Would they have done this for President Bush? Sure they would.
