Sowell column

Another great article against Obama by Thomas Sowell. Obama believes tax cuts for the rich cost the government and do nothing to create jobs and boost the economy. That's Obama's view.

Blaming Obama

Someone mentioned they were confronted by two panhandlers downtown, and they blamed Obama. Are you kidding me? This town has doubled the water bill and utility bill, and the commission wants to raise taxes, and Cape city leaders want to put a trolley downtown. You might want to look around this town before you blame Obama.

Spending problem

I wonder how come it's so hard to understand you can't spend more money than you take in.


The caller has it all wrong. The panhandling has nothing to do with Obama, but the casino. They either lost all of their money or they're hoping someone struck it rich and gives them money. I would say it's more the casino that's brought panhandlers.

Sowell column: Sowell who....just one person's view, I have one and you have one.

Blaming Obama & Panhandlers: Panhandlers have been in Cape long before both Obama and the casino. If they are hungry take them somewhere to eat and if they need a job offer them one and see them run.

Spending problem: How true, apparently the members of Congress don't balance their checkbooks.

Ready for some sunshine and warmer weather.

Cape is drunk on the revenues they see coming from the casino. They have a gambling addiction. Spend, spend, spend, why not pay all our debts before a trolley to no where. Why are we increasing government? So, later generation will be forced in to higher taxes to pay for this crap? Broadway is a crap hole.

All of this mess were in is not caused by just Obama, Bush II, Clinton. This is a problem that has been accumilating for the past 40 years and Obama just happen to be our President when the invoice came due. The housing mess pretty well put the icing on the cake, you know when everybody was building mansions on the hill and not modest homes well it all blew up September 15 2008 now we got to figure out how to get out of this mess. The problem is you cut spending it will have to come from entitlements a lot of it, the next problem is the people will raise all kinds of hell the feed back will be cut John across the street but don't cut mind, people are going to have to make up there minds do they want to start bringing this debt down or do they want to continue down the road beyond the point of no return that is the decision the people are going to have to make.
