Speak Out

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

Angus Jones

God bless you Angus Jones for describing "Two and a Half Men" as filth. The show is disgusting. No one should watch it.

County tax

I see the county's going to reimpose a tax that they promised they would take off if we voted in another tax earlier. Now they say they are broke, but they had plenty of money when they wanted to vote themselves a raise. It's amazing that they have money for themselves but not enough to run the county. Most of them make too much money.

Missing Central

I'm curious about the homecoming and Christmas parades as to why the Central Marching Band is not in those. They would be great additions.

The liberals have whipped themselves up into such a state that they are demanding anybody with 2 nickels to rub together must give them one of them. I am just as determined since I earned the nickels and they have already got their tax for their welfare once, on keeping both nickels.

I am a liberal, I have two nickels and no one is demanding I give one to them.

What you are angry about, appears to be the fact that you have worked your entire life to accumulate wealth and are uncertain as to how you can take it with you.

I work hard for what I have and to provide for my family. I give "unto Caesar that which belongs to Caesar" and give thanks for another day of living.

Reasoning: I too give that which belongs to Caesar, but I only want to give my fair amount and not to be taken by the Blood Sucking Freeloaders.

without raising the tax rates, there is a way to increase revenue. Just drop the limit on Social Security wages for tax purposes. Presently if you earn over $110,000 you stop paying FICA tax on the overage. Drop the limit and some one making $1,000,000 will pay FICA Tax on the Whole $1,000,000--this will increase revenue more than raising the tax rate on the wealthy.

I "give unto Caesar" also. I think we should help support or country. However, I do not think that we should have to "give unto" everybody who won't get out and HELP "give unto Caesar". We should ALL do our part. Instead some people seem to think they are doing their part by taking from the givers! Yes, there are people who have paid into SS and they deserve to sit back and take thier ease. There are also people who are truly disabled and need extra help to make it from day to day. But, there are many more than these two groups who are just too darn lazy to get out and work. Our government perpeptuates that by giving them a check and allowing them to take their undeserved ease - I am tired of the DEADBEAT people!!!

The new leaf pickup routine is NOT working. Supposedly they have already been in our area (1)once, and are still working area 4. We have had leaves at the edge of our property for weeks, and the city water has meanwhile been tearing up things to put in new water main. It appears that leaf pickup and the work being done on the water mains has not been coordinated. It looks like we will have leaves piled at the edge of our street until Easter. NOT ACCEPTABLE.

I remember a poster theorist who was posting on here when I began. I thought he was a pretty sound fellow.

Unfortunatly for you Wheels, my father was not a democrat, so there goes that theory.

I am liberal because I believe judgemnet should only be made by one deity who knows much more than I. I believe in following his advice and giving to those in need, and living by his laws.

I will be the first, or maybe second, to say that the welfare system is abused. There is nothing wrong with welfare, it is those who allow or seek ways to allow those who do not need, to get. If you are using a handicap decal falsely, I will report you!

Here is how I justify it....President Obama is not the one evaluating the individuals to see if they do indeed qualify for help.

I said, Mr. Wheels, that you APPEAR to be angry about. I do not know that, I certainly didn't say you would be judged in the hereafter, I just said what you appear to be angry about. You then went on to say that wasn't it at all. Now I wonder why you are so defensive.

-- Posted by Reasoning on Wed, Dec 12, 2012, at 2:22 PM

I have an idea----Reasoning, why don't you go ahead and work and support a extra people who don't want to work? Then Wheels can just pay what taxes he owes knowing you are taking care of the rest of the people who don't want to work. Makes perfect sense, NOT. Reasoning, I have to agree with Wheels, you just don't get the scope of the problem!

Just got in from a great outdoors day and just couldn't let a couple of comments pass. "Give unto Ceasar" and "And one deity that is smarter than me". Guess they are both references to BHO. I have never thought any politician of any party was as smart as I am. My theory is the more education one attains the less common sense one has. Both party's are are swimming in the mud right now and whatever comes of this "fiscal cliff" will hurt everyone. I agree that a person who calls himself a Democrat these days have faulty thinking as to what the real Democratic politicians are up to. It is progressive,liberal socialism. Don't pay any attention to what they say and only to what they do. BHO has only begun to bend everyone over.

"Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country" (JFK). JFK would roll over in his grave if he knew of all the free loaders and Blood Suckers that only believe in what the country can do for them.

"I am liberal because I believe judgemnet should only be made by one deity who knows much more than I. I believe in following his advice and giving to those in need, and living by his laws."

Obama worshiper?
