It's called private education for a reason. Public money should not be funding it. Period. If you don't want public education, that the public pays for, then you choose to use your own money to send your child where you want. They should not be going on my dollar.

To lobbyist Grover Norquist, who thinks he owns the House Republicans: Hey, Grover, it's over.

Mr. (Lloyd) Blankfein, the millionaire CEO of Goldman Sachs, says the middle class needs to lower expectations for Social Security, … all the while he and his cronies made their millions on the backs of the middle class. … How about all of you greedy CEOs kicking some of that money back to us “little” people?

Halogen (blue) headlights are good to see the highway when driving a vehicle but seem to “blind” a person when a vehicle using the halogen lights comes toward them.

If the American people can give their love and support to those less fortunate during this holiday season, why can't the uber rich in Washington learn from this? When Washington says the “American people,” they have to look farther than their gated communities. It's time to get your act together.

The Democratic Party is successful in presidential elections because they do not underestimate the intelligence of 51 percent of the people, especially the single women.

America is a center-right country. Look at all the governorships and state legislatures.

The roads in eastern Allen County are horrible. The Amish horses have trenched the roads to the point the roads are unsafe. When it rains, the trenches fill with water and cause the car to hydroplane severely. When will the county … repair the roads so they are safe?

To the ranter who feels it necessary to remind David Long, Marlin Stutzman and Bob Morris they work for everyone: Please remember to tell your liberal brothers, especially King Obama, the same thing. Many voters don't wish to be subjected to his “Robin Hood” economic agenda and “free to be me” social attitudes.

How can FWCS (Fort Wayne Community Schools) save money? First, get rid of the electronic signs. These should have never been bought. … We do not need a spokesperson. The school board members should field all questions. … Eliminate the superintendent position and all of the staff.

To the right-wing … (person) ranting about Katrina: King George (Bush) flew over and looked out the window at his minions below. President Obama hit the ground to see what happened first hand and to see what needed to be done.

Cheer up, Purdue fan. At least you have women’s basketball — LOL.
