Romney's trip

As a longtime student of U.S. diplomatic history, I can say without reservation that Mitt Romney's recent foreign policy trip was an undeniable, unequivocal, unmitigated, and unparalleled disaster.

Hoops fundraiser

I was at the Hoops for Life 5K run and the Hoops for Life Rick Springfield concert, and it was an amazing time. The whole day was put together so well, but the highlight for me of the whole day was when Shannon Aldridge spoke before the concert. The words that came out of his mouth were amazing. This guy really knows what he is talking about.

Negative ads

All those negative political ads certainly help me to decide who not to vote for. It is a big waste of money.

Frisbee golf

Please, no more parks with Frisbee golf. Trying to walk in beautiful Cape County Park North is like walking in a war zone. Capaha Park is no better. Please leave the parks alone for other uses.

Government support

The only people who should get government help are the disabled and the seniors who cannot work. All others would find a way if they had to.

Movie violence

Immediately after the murders in Colorado, it was alleged that this was inspired by talk radio. But it is becoming more and more obvious that it was in fact inspired by the Batman movies themselves. There is much murder in the Batman movies, and there has also been murder in the theater where it has been shown. What we need to do is to change the movies so they are more wholesome.

Illegal parking

I thought it was illegal to park on the wrong side of the street, but apparently in Jackson it is OK. I see numerous cars on a daily basis parked on the wrong side of the street. This has been going on for years. Why have the law and not enforce it?

Romney's trip: Any presidential candidate needs to meet the major foreign heads of states to size them up and them to size him up.

Negative ads: The mute button works wonders.

Movie violence: Crazies do what crazies do, our goal is to put the crazies away before they can do harm to themselves and others.

Illegal parking: IMO there are more important laws to enforce, if all the laws were enforced the city would need double the L.E.O.

Go Team USA.....

Romney's trip - as a long time student of liberal democrats like you I'd say his trip must have been successful. It hit a nerve with you.

Imagine that candidate Romney has visited Israel more times than president Obama. Hurts, don't it?

Romney's trip..."longtime student". Longtime? You want longtime, check out Magsaysay street in Olongapo. Student? That says it all right there.

Frisbee golf...you obviously have never been in a war zone.

RE: Negative ads:

McCaskill's "too conservative" attack ad against Todd Akin makes me want to move across the river just to vote for the guy. Everything she said he wants to do, I'd like to see happen. I just wish we could get a good conservative candidate like that over here...
