Tonawanda News — So all of the Republicans who hate Obamacare: I certainly hope you don’t intend on being hypocritical regarding its benefits. All you seniors who hate the president, please don’t take advantage of the prescription drug savings. To all the parents of college age children, please don’t take advantage of the fact that your child will be covered until they are 26. To the people who have pre-existing conditions and hate Obamacare, please don’t come running for coverage because you lose your insurance and now insurance companies cannot deny you coverage due to that pre-existing condition. I would hate to see these “principled” people become hypocritical. Oh, and if you lose everything due to lack of insurance, please don’t seek the government’s help for you and your family. Remember your motto, “government is evil.”

This is for Eric DuVall. He’s talking about racial profiling and making such a big stink, that if you look a certain way thy’re going to frisk you. When is this country going to wake up? Go to a private school and find the most preppy kid with the suit and tie. He’s usually the biggest dope dealer in the school. But if you wear a hoodie you’re a bad guy. It’s a phobia and it’s all done by these people in government.

I am not a North Tonawanda resident but I made a comment about the light removed from Payne and Tremont. I called the mayor because it’s only a three-way stop sign. I live in the City of Tonawanda but I sell real estate and I do a lot of business in the area. I spoke to the mayor’s assistant and he said that’s what they decided but it was reviewed and now it’s a four-way stop. The mayor’s assistant did a great job. Smart thinking.
