Tonawanda News — Hey what about Obama’s speech? I don’t think that speech was too good at all. We need to grow more economy, not a bigger government sir. When you came around to that green energy, your idea didn’t have a big response because of the other things that you invested in green that you lost. And some of your new programs are gonna hurt the middle class. And I didn’t hear your plan for a guaranteed Medicare or Medicaid. Where is that at sir? And why are you undermining the citizens of the United States with an amendment to gun rights, when there are other ways to go about it?  I do not trust this president at all.

They’re talking about raising minimum wage and saying how it’s gonna cost people jobs. If they don’t want to increase minimum wage then do what Kennedy wanted to do and freeze wages on everybody. If minimum wage can’t go up why should a politician get a raise? Why should teachers and police get raises? Homeowners have to pay more taxes to pay for their increases. Maybe they ought to take a cut in pay because the country is in such bad shape.

I read in the paper that a North Tonawanda man pleaded not guilty to his tenth DWI. Ten times! This man should be charged with attempted murder. Ten times! That is attempted murder. He is habitually trying to kill someone by driving drunk. There is absolutely no excuse for this man not being charged with felonies and being put away for 20 years. Does it take a death to prove a point?

Will somebody please tell these illegal aliens that if you are here illegally you don’t have any rights. You don’t have the rights to protest or anything, because you’re here illegally. You knew that when you came. Your families can’t stay together if they are here illegally. Why doesn’t the government tell them that? Why doesn’t somebody tell them that? These people come here and they turn against us! This is not working.

Why does it bother people if Christmas lights are on beyond Christmas? I think they are very pretty. I love looking at Christmas lights and the other decorations at the houses. Just keep it up people, because they are very pretty and nice to look at. Keep it up.

They keep blowing it out of proportion, about the asteroid that is gonna fly by the planet. Well if it does hit the planet I hope it hits Washington and all the pinheads that are screwing up our country!

It would be very nice if people who are buying the president and the Congress and the Senate and all the other legislators in this country to remember that we are not China. This is the United States of America, not the United States of China. Even though China owns us because all the money we borrow from them! We’ve got to quit depending on them and bring back industry here. There is something wrong with you people in office!
