Drug arrests

I would like to know how many people are as outraged as I am when reading about the drug raid in Haverhill, and learning that those arrested are all on SSI and SSDI. Enough is enough. We, who are hard working, are sick and tired of these people who are sucking the life out of the system I cannot believe how many are on this. If they are able to sell drugs, then they can find a job. I blame doctors and lawyers who so blatantly find a way for these people to get the benefits. Where are our representatives? These benefits should be taken away from these people immediately. We keep enabling the lazy and this has to stop. No wonder we are heading for the cliff. I think we are already there.

Hunting

Once again, it is that magical time of year when we have our brave and valiant heroes taking down all those menacing deer right before Christmas! It’s a good thing that they have their high-powered rifles and bows. I hope Rudolph escapes. Have a miserable Christmas, hunters.

Counting their money

A Sound Off caller thinks that just because a person is a Republican, it means that he or she has extra money and time for counting it? Sounds like the rhetoric and smear that the media repeats over and over about Republicans and conservatives each day. Is it irresponsible to earn your own money and pay your own bills with it? How many millions of dollars does the president have tucked away? How about Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid as well as many others in the government? How much money have any of them donated? Let’s talk about that and remind the working people every day that these Democrats are calling themselves “compassionate.” What is compassionate about bankrupting and destroying America?
