“I read where a financial officer for Dixon, Ill., (population of 16,000 people) allegedly stole $53 million over 20 years. Nobody in this tiny town wondered where over $2 million a year was disappearing? Can you imagine how much gets ‘overlooked’ in our federal government?”

“Dear people talking loudly into your cellphones: Please try to make your conversations more interesting to listen to.”

“Has anyone noticed that every jobs report includes a reference to a previously adjusted number? So why don’t they report the correct number the first time, or would that be telling the truth about a negative jobs market?”

“People go to college to get higher paying jobs. They are able to land a higher paying job than someone not college educated, yet can’t pay off their student loans in 25 years? They get a $25,000 car loan and can pay it off it in five years. Why not your student loans? I think they should withhold your degree until you pay off your student loans.”

“It seems that Obama has caught a touch of the Munchausen by Proxy Syndrome while flying all over the Country on Air Force One trying to get re-elected come November. He vicariously believes that he eliminated Osama bin Laden all by himself instead of the US Navy’s Seal Team 6. Obama didn’t even sign the order himself in case there was a problem. He let Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta sign it. It’s ok to bask in the bravey of the Seals but not ok to steal their bravery outright.”

“As far as I am concerned, President Obama may mention his authorization to kill Osama bin Laden as much as he wants! As former Defense Secretary Robert Gates, a Republican, said, ‘It was the most courageous decision I have ever seen a President make, a very gutsy move.’ Sure, Barack did not fire a weapon; he did not fly the helicopter or take bin Laden’s DNA before dumping him into the sea. For that, he has more than given credit to Seal Team 6 and our troops. But without Obama’s approval, bin Laden would still be walking this earth and being a global threat. What did Bush/Cheney do?”

“What an embaressment! Where does Michelle Obama get her clothes? She comes to Arizona wearing, what looks like, part of her grandmother’s crazy quilt!”

“I’m not any more racist than I was four years ago. But I am more wary scared and heck of a lot less trusting of the federal government now than I was four years ago.”
