Tonawanda News — I believe the point the caller is repeatedly making about shootings only being in public schools is obviously because of his idea that religion solves the problems. What about the mass shooting in the Sikh temple in Wisconsin this past summer? What about the bombs being lobbed between Israel and Palestine in the name of religion? Don’t bring religion into it as the answer because the religious have been shooting at each other for hundreds of years and solving things with violence. It’s animal nature to kill. Humans are animals, therefore we kill.

Where does someone in Sound Off get off telling people they should be taking down their Christmas lights? I personally like to keep mine up a little longer to enjoy the season. When this person starts paying my electric bill then they can have a say. People are so nosey and worried about everyone else’s business. By the way, be afraid. Obama is going to take your gun away. Hee. Hee.

Hey all you scooter drivers. Again I see a person on a scooter in the center right lane on Military Road in Kenmore. It’s 6:15 a.m. and there you are. No lights, no reflectors, no safety orange colored flag, and wearing dark clothing. It’s dark outside people.  You people should also all have at least a safety orange flag so you can be seen in parking lots. As you scoot around people backing up cannot see you. Come on people, use some common sense. Even the shopping cart push cart has a blinking light.

What is going on with the project on Walck Road, besides nothing. It’s taking forever to build those condos. Does anybody have an answer?

I’m calling to let everybody know about the brand new show on television. It’s called “Judge Judy.” It’s about cases where people sue each other. It’s a very good show.  It’s very funny. The judge’s name is Judy. She’s incredibly funny.

OK, Buffalo Bills. You hired yourself a new coach. But as they say, show me the money. I’ll believe it if they win more games next season — not necessarily go to the playoffs, but win more games as compared to this season. Let’s not get too excited there, boys.

I’d like to say with Trader Joe’s coming to Niagara Falls Boulevard in Amherst, the politicians should stop that immediately. We already have two good grocery stores, Tops and Wegmans. The prices are fair and we do not need all that increased traffic congestion. There will be nothing but accidents and traffic jams. Tops, they’re a wonderful cheap store around the corner on Maple. We don’t need these grocery stores so close to each other.

Maybe people don’t want to take their decorations down now. I don’t know why people worry about other people’s stuff. It’s their electric bill not yours. So Christmas is over, who cares?
