“The Arizona government department that brings in revenue just cut its work force in half. So, now all the money waiting to be collected from several years past will just be lost.

Does this make sense?”

“If liberal judges didn’t require that we have special classes for the children of illegal aliens who can’t speak English, maybe we could afford to have music therapy for legal, tax-paying citizens.”

“To the venter Sunday that asked that retired people stay out of the grocery stores at noon, 5 p.m. and weekends: Just because I have white hair and am 67 years old and retired doesn’t mean I don’t still hold down a job. … A lot of us 'retired people’ still work due to the mess our economy is in.”

“I have a lot more that I would like to say to you, but it wouldn’t get published in the newspaper so I’ll just leave it alone.”

“My Kroger brand raisin bran just went from 14 ounces per box to 8 ounces, but (is) still 99 cents. That’s almost a 43 percent increase! … Oh well, it’s back to oatmeal for me.”

“I was taught in civic and economics class over 50 years ago that our country would not be taken over by a war. I was taught that we would be taken over by our own government. Interesting that Mr. E. was right all those years ago.”

“Saturday’s 'Abstinence-only sex ed fails to protect’ (column) could be renamed to 'Government-only sex ed fails to protect.’ The kid’s parents let him down by not having 'the talk’ or getting him a DVD on the subject.”

“Socialism in America of various economic and political theories advocated collective and governmental ownership. The tradition continued to flourish under the names of Socialist Party of America, American socialism and democratic socialism. Better known now as the 'neo-liberal coup.’ ”

“I got up late this morning and the first thing I saw on TV was Obama talking to the troops in North Carolina. Why is it that Obama is always on live TV lately? He says the same old stuff in every speech. I thought the campaign was over.”

“I love to read the Vent column. It makes me laugh at the Republicans who gripe about President Obama. Well, Republicans, it’s time to wake up from (your) Bush-era haze. The Republican Party is over with. It took Bush eight years of his stealing elections, but the younger generation finally got someone they can relate to, and they will never vote Republican again.”

“Enjoyed the AP photo of the U.S. soldier on bent knee shaking hands with the Iraqi child. Am I to assume that now that Bush is gone that the media’s ban on positive news from Iraq has been lifted? Shameful.”

“Your 'W’ and his VP turned out to be a 'F.’ We had to put up with the last eight years when we saw our country taken over by corporate greed from big oil and deregulation by big Wall Street banks — by far their biggest campaign contributors. Today’s mess a coincidence? Think not. A bold plan is needed to solve the worldwide snowball disaster they left us in. So cool your jets and let ’em get to work.”
