Tonawanda News — Bishop Gibbons Apartments had a wonderfully caring and locally raised manager, for most of its existence. A couple of years ago, the property went under different management and the caring manager was replaced with a person who doesn’t like elderly people, let alone understand them. We lost a lot with that change.

Once the election is over, Mitt Romney’s high-priced accounting firm will submit an amended return to get him back the amount he overpaid for taxes because they purposely reduced the amount of contribution he took credit for. Their “gimmick” of not claiming the entire deduction so he wouldn’t sound like a liar for claiming he paid more tax this year than he was actually responsible for. He said he wouldn’t be presidential quality if he didn’t pay all the taxes he should pay nor if he paid more than he had to. Instead he shouldn’t be president because, as he did with his Bain Capital work, he manipulates — and pays an accounting firm to manipulate — the numbers to have them back up what he says. Why should we believe anything he says?

I’m reading in the paper about the consulate attack in Libya now called terrorism. Back in the Bush era when we had a terrorist attack we created a new terror defense agency called the Department of Homeland Security, which went hand in hand with the NIA and FBI and CIA and so on. Perhaps now with a new terrorist attack we can create a new agency and spend several billion more in wasted money, which our government has so much of because they take it from us.
