"I read an article about ‘Legislation targets checked-bag fees.' The legislation by Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) and Sen. Benjamin Cardin (D-Md.) would ‘guarantee passengers one checked bag without the financial burden of paying a fee, or headache of trying to fit everything in a carry-on.' This is a job of the consumer and marketplace, not government. If you don't like baggage fees then fly an airline that doesn't charge for bags. Also, compare the total price of those that charge and those that don't. Figure out your total cost and base your decision accordingly."

"Again Lisa Love misses a golden opportunity to make ASU a football school again by letting Mike Leach go to, of all places, Washington State. Lisa Love has destroyed this football school by hiring and firing Dirk Koetter within a four-month time frame and giving him $3 million to walk. Love stopped the training camp at Tontazona, which is part of our history, and she hired old man Dennis Erickson, another great choice! It is time to fire her and bring in someone who knows ASU, and can do a good job running the program!"

"I don't understand why no one has thought about using ‘hot shots' (cattle prods) to disperse the Occupiers (Flea Baggers). A few jabs with one of those will make the toughest, meanest and maddest bull with rawhide skin beller and poop. But pretty soon, he will move, We used to call it ‘Coming to Jesus.' Forget the pepper spray."

"The answer to Larry Kluth's comment, ‘How does faith affect your decisions?' One answer is: Millions of ‘faithful' of all religions have unprotected sex and ‘deliver' one child after another that they cannot afford and probably don't want, in the name of god. This impacts our environment, taxpayers and communities. The gift from ‘god,' if there is one, is birth control!"

"If all the women who have come forward and all of those who have yet to come forward to accuse Herman Cain of sexual misbehavior vote for him, then he has a good chance of being our next president."

"Obama has agreed to assist in the EU bailout of Greece and Italy. While in the short term this will help the stock market, in the longer term it increases leverage the U.S. is currently struggling to reduce and will result in vastly increased inflation. Thanks for the gift, Barack. Hopefully it is a parting one."
