Tonawanda News — What is Obama gonna do with Walmart’s promise of putting military to work full time in their stores? What’s gonna happen when one of those GI Joe’s goes into military mode in the store and kills people? They have the mental health problem going on every day and they talk about it. Well what about our military when they come home from Afghanistan and Iraq and everywhere else where you stick our people that we shouldn’t be.

Everybody is talking about the new gun rules and stuff. The one guy who lost his son at Sandy Hook was asking a question on the news of why you need a 30-round clip. The answer to that question is it depends on where you live. If you live in an are where there are gangs everywhere and you want to protect your family. Or if you’re on the Mexican border and you got drug cartels and everyone else crossing your property and shooting ranchers and invading towns and killing people and raping. So that’s your answer.

Where do these teachers get the idea that they are babysitting all our children? They’re not babysitting our children. They are there to teach the children, and unless the kids come out with some knowledge they are not doing their job. You teachers don’t punch out at 5 o’clock. You have got it made so where do you get the idea that you punch out at 5 o’clock? Teachers have less work than they ever had.

If the teachers think they are babysitting children I think they are way overpaid to be a babysitter. Maybe they are in the wrong field of work. If they don’t like children and that’s how they feel about their job they are definitely in the wrong line of work. They are there to teach children, and children have been the same throughout years. Way before you were a teacher there were teachers who were much better teachers. And when they taught children were learning, not like these young teachers that can’t wait to get out of the school as soon as the bell rings.

If you’re not a teacher you shouldn’t knock a teacher. I know teachers that stay until 7 o’clock at night and they are up until 2 o’clock in the morning and they are dedicated teachers. So unless you are a teacher please don’t knock

I guess I have quite a question on giving amnesty to the illegal aliens, or giving them a path to citizenship. What part of illegal are we missing here? When we do something illegal we are punished. Everyone else in this country is punished. But these people are going to get amnesty because they voted for Obama. What about those of us that didn’t want Obama to get in? So they are running our country now?

Is the governor going to get as much harassment from the people about putting up casinos as the Indians have? I’ll bet not. But I certainly would like to see it.
