Sound Off

Obama speech

Obama’s address to the nation regarding Syria was absolutely pathetic. It was weak, full of lies, nonsense, distortion of facts and the law and far from convincing. However, his speech strongly confirmed one thing, Obama still thinks we are all idiots and we will continue buy his incompetence and deception. But we are all waking up and realizing what a total disaster he is and what a horrible mistake we made giving him another term. God save America from this nightmare.

Obama-bashing

My wife asked me why I keep reading Sound Off when it’s become a forum for Obama bashers spewing venom against the president and his supporters. I explained that it’s actually comforting to read these constant rants about our Indonesian (or is it Kenyan?) born president, who is really a secret Muslim, with a devious atheist agenda, who pals around with terrorists — not counting Osama bin Laden, of course) — and wants to destroy our economy — if he can only figure out how to stop the stock market from hitting new record highs. After all, as someone who admires the president, it’s reaffirming to see what you’re up against. Besides, I’d much rather chuckle at the Obama-bashing than pick up Sound Off and find these same folks gushing over what a great job President Romney, or Senator Brown, or Senator Gomez, or Representatives Tisei, Guinta, Bass or Golnik are doing. Now that would really be something to get upset about.

Carmen

So! My name is Carmen. My father’s name was Carmen as was my grandfather’s as was his father’s. My family has lived and continue to live in, and contribute to, the Merrimack Valley for well over 100 years. I am tired of being questioned why I am trying to cash my “wife’s” check or use “her” credit card by local stores and even banks. We are men we are proud of our Italian heritage and I take offense to those who make light of it or think it is funny. Yes, the new wave of immigrants have women named Carmen as well. So what! Show some respect.
