“Dick Cheney back to his old self trying to instill fear with his unmitigated disaster speech. However he does show some backbone doing it from a disclosed location. His new heart must have come from a Democrat.”

“Moose chili = ‘Crazy redneck murderer!’ Dog kebabs = ‘We need to respect the traditions of people who are different than us.’”

“Loved the thoughtful Vent about snowbirds that offered a fresh perspective, and I’m just a young guy. They do help the economy.”

“I wasn’t around to see the decline and fall of Roman Empire, but thanks to technology I can see the reasons by watching the news every day on television. Too bad the selfish desires of mankind haven’t kept up with technology, but then ancient Rome didn’t have super PACS to save them.”

“It seems the government knows what is best for us and wants to make most of our decisions for us. And those that they let us make they don’t feel we should be held accountable for if things don’t go just right.”

“So 12 Secret Service agents have resigned over the prostitution scandal. Six of them have become party planners for the GSA (General Services Administration).”

“There is an old saying about the mediocrity of the government civil service. After 25 years as an air traffic controller, my father said it summed up his frustration with his fellow government workers. The saying is ‘Good enough for government work.’ That is proving to be the current culture (for) government employees. After 60 years of an ever-expanding government, we can see it has taken hold in the GSA and Secret Service scandals. Why would we ever want to trust our health care or financial oversight to these people?”

“I saw in the paper an ASU grad complaining about having to work as a barista due to a lack of opportunities in the economy. The problem is not the economy in this case. In the last 100 years the only job available to someone with a degree in creative writing was volunteer CEO of the local creative writing club. What were you thinking?”

“The reason we are continually thwarted in halting the illegal invasion is because we offer all the free goodies. Stop the handouts, food stamps, rent subsidies, free medical care, etc., and they go home. No fences, no drones, no National Guard. We don’t have an enforcement problem with Canada because we don’t offer Canadians more than their socialist system does. If they began invading, would we have to install 3,000 miles of fencing? Nonsense. Let’s take away the incentives to invade.”
