Tonawanda News — Obama has managed to push up the national debt with all his nonsensical programs. He speaks with a forked tongue. The king, yeah king of enslaving America. we’re enslaved to the banks, the healthcare system and now he’s going after our second amendment right. 


Doesn’t the president and all the people who want these guns taken off the market remember, it’s not just kids being shot. Remember, Obama sends all our kids, parents, mothers, fathers, uncles, aunts overseas to fight wars we shouldn’t be in. He’s killing our family no matter what. Doesn’t matter what guns are in whose hands. He’s killing our kids. As soon as they get out of school put them in the service so they can get killed for something half of us in this country don’t believe in. So what’s up Mr. Obama?


The person in Thursday’s paper, your president has decimated the country and it’s about time we stop his spending. Or were you looking for more phones for free? Or something else for free? Bush had $2.3 billion when he left office. The rest of that $17 trillion is Obama. And he squandered about $3 trillion on green companies. the $17 trillion is his and he has nothing to show for it. Blame him. You’re the one who hired a community organizer as president.


Sure the stock is up past 14 again, but just remember those are all inflated dollars. So your stock really isn’t at 14, your stock is about 11.


I couldn’t help but snicker at the comment in Thursdays’ edition regarding the $350 rebate check. I have worked two jobs for over 20 years and side jobs whenever possible. I have paid tens of thousands of dollars in New York State income tax. I have a wife and two kids. My wife is mostly a stay at home Mom for our kids because we think it is the right thing to do. She has worked part time jobs when possible to help make ends meet, but with me working two jobs it is a difficult task. We don’t qualify for SNAP (food stamps), HEAP, welfare, public daycare, Medicaid, Section 8 housing, SSI, reduced school lunches, cell phones, WIC or any other similar programs. I do however help PAY for ALL of them. I don’t complain about not being able to receive anything from any of those programs yet you complain about ONE tax incentive that you won’t get. Believe it or not I actually agree with you on your solution. I will gladly vote all of those responsible out of office. Maybe then we can get someone in there who will overhaul all of those programs and save my tax money. Instead of being upset because New York won’t be filling your outstretched hand this time, use this as incentive to work more. By the way, in this budget New York also approved a raise in minimum wage so everybody won.
