 “It’s ridiculous stay up late watching election coverage hoping to see who won. I’m going to hide in my cave for a week, maybe by then we’ll know who won.”

“With apologies to the classic September song, it was not such a long, long time from June to the November elections.”

As chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, Sen. Chris Dodd said the financial crisis was entirely foreseeable and preventable. Then why didn’t he try to prevent it?”

“I see our gas prices are finally coming down, getting almost back to normal but not quite. But I don’t see our grocery bill coming down a penny.”

“With $14.83 billion in net profit, the CEO of ExxonMobil has made idiots out of the CEOS with golden parachutes. While they were making their jumps, he cornered the market on gravity, put our economy in a free fall and now our politicians don’t know up from down.”

“I recently overheard a conversation between two parents, and the summary of one of the mother’s belief about raising their child was that they cannot force their child to do something like practicing their instrument for their orchestra class in school. Shame on her and any parent who does not ensure that their child learns to be a responsible individual who fulfills their commitment to the best of their ability.”

“I won’t force my religious views on you. But if you end up in hell, don’t blame me.”

“I just fed up with this noise pollution coming from these vehicles, SUVs, trucks, cars, going down the street with their basses turned up and probably going deaf inside. The long and short of it is it rattles my windows here on Dobson (Road). It’s offensive. And I wish the people doing it would stop.”

“I’m doing foreclosure on my house. I’m just going to put out a house and let the homeless people stay there until the bank takes over. I think that’s a good deed.”

“Thanks to all of you for sharing my life of quiet desperation.”

“City budget cuts should leave the library staff alone. On your next visit, take the time to read the name tags of the folks identified as staff who were sitting around reading, etc. The majority are volunteers who are there to make your visit more productive and pleasant. In other words, know of whom you speak before you choose to criticize.”

“I read the Vent everyday. Why are we so depressed and always complaining? The most of us are healthy — broke, yeah, but at least you’re healthy.”

“Watching the world turn upside down, the global financial meltdown is presenting a compelling argument for renewed efforts to re-make the European Union into an authentic 'United States of Europe.’ ”

“I had to laugh at the brain who is offended by 'a halfwit who uses the adjectives moron and idiot when referring to venters.’ Big news for Mr. Brain: Both moron and idiot are nouns.”

“To the guy who wants to see the stock market drop (Vent, Tuesday), you’re laid off.”

“To the venter who went trick-or-treating in Germany during the Second World War, I think you are incorrect unless you were trick-or-treating on one of the U.S. bases. Germany doesn’t have Halloween or trick-or-treating.”
