“I supported and voted for Obama. It is time to put the election behind us and all of us come together as a country. I hope we can all agree on that; however, I don't intend to speak to or have anything to do with any Republican for the next four years. (Calm down. It's a joke son.) ”
Where will we be?
“Where will we be in four years? With Obama’s victory came legalized recreational pot use and more gay marriage laws passed. How much more can America take before we realize as a nation the depths of despair we are bringing on ourselves?”
“You don't have to be an extremist to understand that the Constitution is in dire need of an updating. You just have to read it and think about it, which is something that few people bother to do. You also have to get over the grade school fascination that it is some sort of perfect document. Just take a look at our often dysfunctional government and ask where it came from.”
Show me the money
“After constantly hearing at how bad the economy is and the everyday reminder, ‘In this economy. . .,’ I hear on N.P.R this morning how $600 million was spent on this presidential election! Guess there is plenty of money in their economy.”

Snipers. They’re everywhere. You turn this way, and PING! You’re hit. You turn that way and ZIP! A near miss.
This Tuesday, we decided to focus our front page coverage of the Monday night City Council meeting on the retirement of council member Marianna Keesee. That meeting was her last one, and we felt that after her years of service, both on the council and in the community, she deserved the front page. Someone even said that in a rant we received Tuesday morning.
