East Valley Tribune: The Vent

The Vent

The Vent: Aug. 24|| Snowbirds, US journalist beheading, Vent editors
Posted: August 24, 2014

“Call them what you want, Snowbirds or Staybirds. But the ones that live here more than six months and drive on their home state license plates are breaking the law here in Arizona. Oh and by the way, they are already flocking here this year, in case you haven’t noticed.”

“Normally I agree with President Obama, but after the beheading of journalist James Foley, the president should stop the airstrikes using 500-pound bombs, and use napalm instead so ISIS can get a taste of hell before they actually burn in it.”

“Where did the Mesa Tribune get these new Vent editors from anyway? In my opinion, they just got out of college, where they have been brainwashed for eight years by their professors in the art of being liberal! I suggest that the Mesa Tribune hire someone with some common sense and not people that watch MSNBC all day!”

“150 years ago, if you disagreed with local government, you could be tarred, feathered and ridden out of town on a rail. Governments cannot do this now. However, Mary Rose Wilcox threatens that, or worse, to anyone who disagrees with her.”

The Vent: Aug. 23 || Gay football player, Ferguson shooting
Posted: August 23, 2014

“I moved to the Valley 19 years ago. I was warned not to live in Mesa because people there did not have an open mind. The Vent of August 17 asking for an ASU season ticket refund because of an openly gay football player really proves that nothing ever changes in Mesa.”

“Certain groups in Ferguson, Missouri, are demanding that the cop that shot the young black teenager be arrested and thrown in prison regardless if he’s guilty. Have you ever noticed that the people that demand tolerance and justice for themselves are the last to give it to others?”

“We must ask ourselves as a nation: what is our country coming to when many consider Hamas, a known terrorist group that hides behind civilians while launching rockets at civilians, and a thug who robs a store and assaults a police officer and tries to take his gun to use it on him as the good guys?”

“There are two constitutions in this country. A white man points a gun at law enforcement in Nevada, holding up the Second Amendment, and law enforcement retreats. In Missouri, a black man chants equality from the streets, holding up the First Amendment, and law enforcement responds with tear gas.”

“When citizens kill police officers, they go to jail until the trial. When police kill citizens, they get special treatment and remain free and there probably will never be a trial.”

The Vent: Aug. 19 || Middle East violence, campaign phone calls
Posted: August 19, 2014

“Judging by all his vacations and rounds of golf this year alone, I’d say Obama doesn’t give a rip about all the violence in the Middle East, or the fact that the Islamic terrorists want a modern-day Holocaust.”

“After starting a bombing campaign in Iraq, President Obama went to Martha’s Vineyard for a stress-relieving vacation. I’m sure his vacation will be much more relaxing than Sgt. Tahmooressi’s ‘vacation’, already in its fifth month, in a Mexican jail — a result of an innocent mistake.”

“Jerry Walker, LD-25 candidate, uses a sham ‘endorsement’ by the fabricated Arizona Teacher’s Association on his signs when he knows very few teachers support him. He insults teachers. He insults voters. Take down those signs!”

“Judging by the number of phone calls I receive from them, the candidates are all very interested in my opinion. Well, here it is: In my opinion, any person currently holding public office, or any person aspiring to public office should be put on a large ocean liner, sailed out over the Marianas Trench and torpedoed! There! You have my hard-sought opinion, now QUIT CALLING ME!”
