“What grading scale gives you an ‘A’ for getting a 70 percent, a ‘B’ for a 60 percent, a ‘C’ for 50 percent and a ‘D’ for anything 0-50 percent? That’s the standard for the Arizona Department of Education’s new A-F system for rating schools. The only way for a school to get an ‘F’ is to get a ‘D’ three years in a row. What a joke.”

“I have more faith in President Obama’s Robin Hood approach tax plan, than I do Mitt Romney’s Robbing Hood-wink tax plan. Failing to release his own taxes doesn’t give him the appearance of a straight shooter.”

“All the Republicans are talking about spending cuts. How many job cuts will this result in? Maybe Congress can start by cutting its own pay in half and paying its own health insurance.”

“I went to Chick-fil-A on Aug. 1 because I too am Catholic and wanted to show my support for the owner. However, at 5 p.m., they were sold out of a three-day supply of food! That’s the way to show support for a business owner who has been unfairly criticized by the media! They have just become MY favorite restaurant!”

“Not that I ever ate or ever wanted to eat at Chick-fil-A since I can make better chicken on my backyard grill, but Dan Cathy’s distasteful views give me all the more reason to avoid his business. He has the right to express himself, and I have the right to eat somewhere else. As far as I am concerned, Mr. Cathy can go cluck himself.”

“Wednesday proved Americans value their Constitutional freedoms over what hate groups like LGBT and the Democrats are trying to sell. A lot of chickens died for our freedom.”

“According to FBI statistics, gun violence is down significantly since the expiration of the so-called assault weapon ban. Actually crime overall is down. And as a Venter pointed out on Aug. 1, as long as we have a government hell-bent on assuming more and more power over the populace we are moving closer to being Syria of today and we will need even better than what we can currently get our hands on.”
