Tonawanda News — Al Gore doesn’t make the laws in this country.

I have to make a comment about the person who made an issue of American-made products. I just recently had to buy a stove and refrigerator. My vintage 1950s Westinghouse electric stove finally died, and I went out looking for appliances, and couldn’t find anything American made. There was something made in Korea. The best I could do was buy a Westinghouse that was put together in the United States but all the parts were made in China. So finding American-made products is not as easy as (people) think.

Watching the news they talk about Obama care, now for all of us it doesn’t sound like its going to be good. They talk about an exchange in each state. That’s more government.

After reading an article in Sound Off that city plows are not liable, well I think it’s time to change the law.

•••

The reason that people know they were making $26 an hour at Hostess is because it was on the news.

•••

Did I read that you can’t get the city to pay for damages that they might do to your automobile?

•••

Why can’t Erie County health department come down to the City of Tonawanda unexpectedly and inspect some of these restaurants?

•••

This is for all you Republican politicians out there: Just because you have such fantastic health care for when you retire and you can afford health care with all the money you make off of taxpayer dollars, and your big pay — over pay — you can afford it but you want to knock down Medicare and Medicaid and every other thing that we do need.

I see there’s far too many people killing each other in the streets of Buffalo, and the suburbs. I say the smartest thing to do is, as soon as somebody shoots somebody, execute them the very next day.

•••

I was just reading in the paper something about a state legalizing marijuana, and it comes in glass jars and plastic bags, and why doesn’t it come with any health warnings and stuff like that that they put on cigarettes? Oh, maybe it prevents cancer and helps your breathing. Oh it was just a scare tactic all these years?

•••

I agree with the person who wrote in about it’s never listed when young people drive into buildings. The fact is most people who drive into buildings are either senior citizens or young, inexperienced drivers, and I think they both should be listed in the paper.

I see in today’s paper there’s a lady who lost her purse and somebody was good enough to turn it in. I had lost a $50 money order (while shopping), and here it is a week later and nobody turned it into the service desk. I’m a disabled American Veteran.
