Life isn’t fair
The real world is life and may not be fair. Don’t complain that your feet ache. There probably is a person out there with no feet. Do some good deeds. It’s therapeutic, and you may find that your feet may not ache as much anymore. Life is a short journey. Make a positive impact. Don’t be selfish, volunteer. Someone needs your kind act. Happy Holidays to all.
Liberals apparently don’t believe in freedom of speech, unless it’s something they agree with. The suspension of Papa Phil from “Duck Dynasty” shows just how much tolerance the so-called progressives have. All of us are at risk if A&E’s philosophy prevails in this country.
I was wondering how many more letter carriers are going to get attacked on the job. Being out after dark isn’t safe for these people especially during the holiday season. I guess management doesn’t care about these folks.
Not so easy
In response to “Get a job” last week: It isn’t quite as easy as that. I lost my career of 25 years to technology and downsizing. I have no marketable skills now so I looked into community college but I was denied grants because of my demographics -- I’m a single, 48-year-old, white male). I was offered student loans at 10.81 percent interest. At that rate I would be paying off student loans into retirement age. If I could get a job in a new field to begin with and not lose my house in the meantime.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren tells us that her fight in 2014 will be to lower the cost of college education. The high cost of education is because she and her overpaid colleagues are bankrupting the education system. In her last year at Harvard, she collected $350,000 for teaching one course and she is one of many swindling student and parents from their savings. Only in Massachusetts can a fraud like Warren be elected state senator.
I guess I don’t understand what the “tea party” has to do with promoting violence and killing? I guess I’m not listening to the right people. I do think senseless killing or any killing for that matter is the act of a part of our society that could care less if other people live or die. I agree getting a gun or an ax or knife or a hammer makes it easier for them but, they will kill if they can by any means available. We have to stop coddling the scum that preys on the rest of us and make them very aware of the consequences of their actions.
To the Sound Off caller who wants to take away everyone’s gun because of some nut case in Colorado: Do you want to take away everyone’s car, too? I’m pretty sure someone will be driving drunk on New Year’s Eve.
Columnist Dan Thomasson asks where did the Colorado sheriffs get the idea that they could pick and choose which laws to enforce? The obvious answer: Barack Obama. He has unilaterally decided which parts of Obamacare to enforce and which to ignore, which parts of the immigration law to enforce or ignore, EPA laws, IRS laws, and the list goes on. And since Obama is a constitutional scholar, it must be OK. Of course, we have never seen his college transcript so maybe he actually flunked constitutional law.
