Speak Out

Today's Printed Speak Out

Red light

I'm confused. I thought that a red light meant that you were supposed to stop, as opposed to it just being a suggestion. Be nice if the police would actually enforce that law.

Slow down

There seems to be a nationwide problem, from watching TV and such, but so many people are talking so very fast, as if they've got to get so many words out per second or per minute. They may think they're emphasizing things when they talk fast, but if you listen to all these fast talkers, when they want to emphasize something and want you to understand what they're saying, they slow down when they speak. So why don't they speak slower all the time so you know what they're saying?

What record?

What has Obama done besides the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that has made a significant change to America since 2008?

Oil study

Shipping oil overseas would lower gas prices, the study said. I hope the people of the United States won't take that bait. Remember what happened to our propane prices here in the United States when we contracted too much propane overseas. I wonder why they think all of us are so stupid we don't realize what they try to tell us so they can get their way. Shame on them.

I mean perfomance bonuses. The top executives paid themselves around 3 million a piece.

@Rick. You forgot the part that had the taxpayers seeing red. These companies that were on the verge of bankruptcy, gave out Production bonuses.

...btw..which Bush ?

Minipinwoman. The unemployment rate has dropped significantly since Bush left office. That is when it was at its highest point. He bailed out (saved) the auto industry and our banking system. He has helped increase the emphysis on green energy to help us save our environment and move away from independence on foriegn oil. He actually got Bin Laden.

E.A...regarding un-employment , could it possibly be because folks just gave up going to the un-employment office because they think it's a waste of time , dunno . If the economy is getting better the amount of people on entitlements should be dropping . It's not .

He did not save the auto industry , every auto maker were doing just fine , he didn't save GM , the tax payers did . Almost $20 billion of tax payer's money were lost after it was done . I wouldn't call it a success .

The green energy never really happen . Tax payers took a hit on this too .

Seals Team 6 got Bin Laden .

I realize you support the President but he ain't all that plus a free bag of chips too . His PPACA hasn't done much either .


During the Recession , the trash business kept picking up .

The new wood fence maker is doing great . I'd like a stake in it .

E.A. if memory serves me, Obama signed the taxpayers up for a round of bailout money. Which I thought was stupid. At times of desperation you will give the ridiculous a try. But it was insanity to try something that didn't work the first time.
