Tonawanda News — Folks whether you know it or not, or can see it. I think we’re looking at the end of a 40-hour work week because of Obamacare. When we have unpredictability, how can we move ahead? How can we hire people? We cant. And then we’ve got Harry Reid, he’s always playing the lowest denominator, the race card, so no one can have a good debate. That separates people right there. But we’re not talking about race Harry Reid, we’re talking about jobs.

Lois Lerner. When she received emails they went to her private (account) so nobody could say that she was talking to someone else ... but now we know what she was doing.

•••

These kids with these video games. And now you read about them shooting up their parents. They’re playing them over and over and over again. They’re addicted to them. And it’s putting information in their brains and when it comes time, they use it, even if it’s evil.

Reading the paper today in the Sound Offs, I can see why a lot of us don’t vote. No matter who you vote for you always get some joker in there who does nothing but what he’s told to do or what he’s paid to do. all our politicians are bought an sold. And then all the articles about hillary and benghazi keep going on and on. Well Benghazi is a joke and all our politicians know about it. They’re supplying arms to our enemies and they don’t care. We’ve got crooked politicians dealing arms and we’ve got crooked politicians dealing drugs. That’s why we have a drug war going on in this country for 20 years.

I thought when you open up a business it’s a risk. Thats what they call it, a risk. When you open up a business you make it or you don’t make it. It seems that all these businesses get all these tax breaks and incentives from the state and government. Why can’t the regular taxpayer, regular homeowners get a tax break for once. Why is it always these businesses that have more connections, thats right you heard me, “connections.”

How come Obama care gets fixed for Congress but not for the American people.

•••

With Egypt does Obama expect us to be humanitarians to people who destroy their own cities and towns. Is he really going to make us pay for them?

•••

To all you drivers our there, how many more red lights do you have to go though before I get hit again? Think about this when your driving. Is it really necessary to be in that much of a hurry? 

•••

How about NT’s ruling party becoming more resident friendly and accountable as our local government used to be?  Why such short council meetings with the elected folk racing out before they have to answer questions from those they are supposed to represent?  Why aren’t we informed of the meetings of all the boards and committees full of political cronies and what they will be deciding on so we can give input as those they are appointed to serve? We used to see those we elect in person out in the community really caring about us.  Now we have to settle for all the photos in the papers so they can take credit for things they had nothing to do with.
