Tonawanda News — The article in Sunday’s paper about transforming aliens into citizens is very good. However, they keep leaving out the word illegal. The people who came here to be citizens came here legally. Years ago they all came here legally. These people, the politicians let them come here illegally. They came here to make their own lives but now they turn around and march against us. They vote against us and they are here illegally and do not belong in this country!

I just wanted to remind you people who voted for the guy that’s in office right now, and the health care plan. I just got the figures. By 2016 you people will be paying $20,000 for a family of four for insurance. And if you don’t have it you pay $2,400 for a fine, and that doesn’t even include insurance. So you can be happy with that. I’m sure you’ll be really happy.

Since all those kids got killed in Connecticut there has been a shooting somewhere in this country every day since. Somebody has shot somebody at a mall or a courthouse. Theres gotta be a problem. The laws have to be a lot tougher. This is ridiculous. Guns are in the wrong hands. They need to be better background checked. Guns don’t kill? Oh crap they don’t kill!

The figures are out for all you people who voted Obama. A family of four, a family of four, in 2016 it’s gonna cost you $20,000 to insure your family. Now you cannot save for your kid’s college tuition. You cannot save a nest egg anymore, it’s impossible. So I’m glad you didn’t think to vote Republican when you should have. Even though I’m a Democrat, I switched because I seen this guy. And $20,000 for insurance, are you out of your mind!

I don’t know about anyone else but I’m getting tired of the local Sheriff’s Department calling my home and soliciting for donations every damn day. This occurs at about this time every year. They say you shouldn’t give donations to phone solicitors and yet they call you for one. If you ask them to send you information, they say that costs money. Well, doesn’t it cost them money to hire solicitors? And where do they get my information? Voter registration? Maybe the county should stop letting people have access to our personal information.

After the (recent) snowstorm, my apartment parking lot was being plowed. It was not done all day. I left for work at 3 p.m. and arrived home at 12:30 a.m. Saturday. No plowing done, then parked across the street in a plowed church lot, retrieved my shovel and started digging out a spot . Just then the plow operator arrives so I ask him to kindly to plow my spot . His reply: “I’m busy I have 40 other spots to do I don’t have the time.”
