“Groundbreaking for what, a new Cubs spring training stadium in the middle of nowhere? What happened to the bill of goods that was sold to the Mesa voters with that slick artist’s rendition of Wrigleyville-West and Riverview Park? The whole reason for the $100 million bond obligation was for a ‘world-class venue’....not this field of dreams. The restaurants, trendy shops, the soccer fields, the baseball practice fields, the Riverview Lake Walk and picnic areas that now look to be five to 10 years down the road, pipe-dreams. Thanks for nothing but a $100 million debt.”

“Obama is criticizing the Romneys for taking a well deserved vacation. Obama is waxing poetic about his one-month vacations on buses and staying at Howard Johnson’s. I wonder if the Obamas stayed at HoJo’s for their vacation last year in the Hamptons. People in glass (White) houses shouldn’t throw stones.”

“Tax the oil companies more? I wonder where they get the money to pay their taxes. I wonder where my barber gets the money to pay his taxes. We all pay the taxes for all businesses.”

“Murders are up 38 percent in Chicago so far this year. How’s that total gun control thing working for you Rahm? Turns out it’s a stupid plan put together by a stupid man. Most of the rest of U.S. is enjoying a decrease in the murder rate as gun controls have been relaxed. The old adage is ‘When gun ownership becomes criminal, only criminals will own guns’. Innocents are left unprotected. In Chicago it is also illegal to bring a knife to a gunfight.”

“So now the anti-mandate, birther, corporate superpacking, right wing voter vigilantes are saying only states can mandate insurance. What a relief. As long as I drive my car on federal highways or parks I don’t need auto insurance.”

“AIG (American International Group), insurance giant saved by the massive federal bailout, wants $30.2 million from the government for interest the company says it is owed from an overpayment of taxes 21 years ago. AIG has filed a lawsuit in Federal Claims Court in Washington to try to get the money even though AIG still owes about $17.5 billion to the government from the bailout. Unbelievable!”

“Instead of bickering over all of these voter fraud laws President Obama should show some leadership and fight voter fraud. In the interest of national security issue a photo ID social security card to all citizens free of charge. That should satisfy Republicans in all states unless they are motivated by other factors, then they would call it an entitlement program.”
