I lost my purse at Toys R Us. An employee named Terry turned it in. I’d like to thank this good Samaritan publicly, so everyone can read about some good things in life rather than all of the bad things we hear. This good deed meant so much to me.
Third party needed
The national Democratic Party sucks and the national Republican Party is the sucker. How do we change the corruption in Washington, D.C.? Politics is no longer local, as it was intended. Maybe it’s time for a third party.
You’re on your own
If you think Congress cares about America in times of disaster, then let’s not forget Hurricane Katrina and now Hurricane Sandy. With the lack of immediate care, you’re on your own America.
Move out of state
It seems like every citizen in Illinois is going to get a hit even though the pension problem is not any of our faults. It was mostly the politicians’ fault. The politicians misspent the pension money. The solution for the average citizen is to just move out of the state. That’s what businesses do when towns will not give them tax breaks that they ask for. Enough is enough in Illinois.
This needs to stop
The middle class was hurt by President Obama and the Democrats. Median income dropped $5,000 in four years under Obama. The civilian labor force participation rate dropped significantly. The average time for the unemployed to find a job doubled. The people forced onto food stamps increased to record levels under Obama. Our jobs were given to foreigners through H-1B visas and illegal immigration. Food, insurance and college costs increased significantly. The national debt increased by 60 percent. This needs to stop.
