“President Obama just signed a law that allows for indefinite detention, without charges or trial, of American citizens suspected of terroristic activities. I thought George Orwell’s ‘1984’ was a stern warning of what our future would hold if Americans let their liberties slip away. Instead, ‘1984’ has become a how-to manual for the left.”

“The appointment of a consumer watchdog while Congress is out is bologna on the part of ‘His Majesty’ Obama. This administration can’t even police itself much less oversee anyone else. Let’s look at Obama’s list of failures. Until he was embarrassed by Arpaio, Obama was ignoring the border, Solyndra (enough said), the Black Panther intimidation of white voters in Pa., BOA was just fined for not making, what has already been proven by the economic meltdown, bad loans to low-income borrowers. This administration couldn’t make a good loan if it hit them in the face and now they want to regulate them?”

“Ha! Sheriff Joe called the Department of Justice’s bluff and they got nothing.”

“Michele Bachmann expected a miracle and it came. She quit! Thank you, Michele. And Sarah, you stay out of politics, too. Saturday Night Live will mourn these losses, but somehow they and we will survive!”

“Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon has a girlfriend that works for a company that gets million dollar contracts from the City of Phoenix but no conflict of interest. Yeah, just about as much as no conflict of interest when Phil’s son Jeff keeps his job as a Phoenix police person after having sex on duty. Corruption is everywhere.”

“Isn’t it ironic, and really quite funny, that Demi Moore, a woman who is very fond of plastic surgery, will be playing Gloria Steinem in the movie ‘Lovelace’? It would be a little like Matt Damon playing George Bush or Ronald Reagan.”

“Asked whether he felt like he had been ‘swift-boated’ by the barrage of ads run against him in recent weeks, Newt Gingrich responded, ‘I feel Romney-boated’ — a reference to the outside advertising campaign launched against Democratic nominee John Kerry in 2004. You’re absolutely correct, Newt. You were not swift-boated! John Kerry became the subject of negative campaign advertising for telling the truth to Congressional committees investigating the conduct of the Vietnam War. You became the subject of such advertising for who you are and what you’ve done in Washington over the years. Why don’t you tell us: What did you do during Vietnam?”

“(Regarding your column, ‘Guns on campus fail to serve educational purpose’): Stacie (Spring), while I respect your young opinion, a review of the campus shootings of the past clearly show that as long as the gunman is still firing, the police wait outside until the shots cease. Look at Columbine. There are other examples too. I think providing co-eds the right of self-protection is the least we can do. Those ‘blue lights’ don’t seem to have put much of a dent in campus crime. When seconds count, the police are just minutes away.”

“Why are Obama, the Democrats in the Senate and sadly even some Republicans (RINO’s — Republicans In Name Only) nickel and dime-ing the few doctors that accept Medicare patients by only reimbursing 65 percent of the doctor’s fees? Did we, senior citizens, only contribute 67 percent of our Social Security taxes all those years when we were working (Yes, Virginia, Americans back in the 1940s, 50s, 60s, 70s and even the 80s all worked for their living, no never-ending unemployment checks, WIC, food stamps, etc., back then). We paid 100 percent of our Social Security taxes and deserve 100 percent payment for our doctor’s fees.”
