Too lenient

I just want to say that I agree 100 percent with the caller concerning the murder of the Australian baseball player. He or she hit the nail on the head. Also this country is too lenient on murderers. If you kill someone then you should pay with your life. If I lived in another country I would think twice about coming here. I can’t blame the Australian government for warning their citizens.


First to the veteran at the Registry. I sympathize with you. The clerk should have gave you a “no wait” slip so you didn’t have to wait when you went back. And having two to three “veteran” items with the Registry it’s ridiculous you had to go through that. My second comment is about the Australian athlete that was murdered. I totally agree. Where is the concern now? And for those three animals that killed him “for fun”, I hope they die soon!

Not this time

If Barack Obama had a son he would look just like the wannabe gangsta thug who shot Chris Lane in the back and killed him. Oh, wait a second, that doesn’t work this time. Never mind!

Illegal bikes

The past two weeks I have noticed three illegal bikes/scooters being driven on our roadways. They all had no visible sign of being registered. One was even shadowing a police cruiser making sure to stay behind it. This is just another illegal trend like red light and stop sign violators on our roadways due to a minimal police presence. So many people have lost their respect for traffic laws. Sadly, deceit prevails.


I’m continually reading about the tragedy of Benghazi and its cover-up. I guess those same writers must have been horrified when they learned of the Bush administration’s cover-up of WMDs, the loss of 3,500 American soldiers or the 134,000 wounded. However, they must feel some satisfaction with the glut of oil we are getting from Iraq’s oil fields.
