I just got a letter from … (a local ophthalmology practice) saying that, because of Obamacare, my … (health) plan would no longer cover them. So after having my doctor of 10 years, I have to find someone else. Or change plans. Isn't President Obama such a great man?

Always beware of the fact that the only thing hindering an all-out revolution is poor people's fear of losing the scraps that the rich throw at them.

Trucker faces 11 felonies. It was an accident. This is the reason there is a large shortage of truck drivers.

Liking or disliking the “gay lifestyle” is irrelevant. Feel free to consider yourself to not be intolerant if you dislike the “gay lifestyle.” But if that dislike contributes to the passage of laws (that) discriminate against gay people in employment, housing, marriage rights, etc., then it becomes very relevant.

GOP was right. Since when have we ever had a president that refuses to negotiate until you give him what he wants. Our allies hate us. Our enemies think we are weak.

If waiting for marriage and natural family planning were emphasized more, we wouldn't have all these shootings. Fewer people would be growing up in broken families.

President Obama claims we are not in a “war” on terror. If so, what right does he have to kill civilian children as collateral damage in other countries? It should be considered murder. What would we consider it if it was going on in our country by a foreign government?

The Democrats blame the Republicans for the government shutdown. Their president, Barack Obama, could have stopped it with one stroke of his pen.

After believing Mr. (Edward) Snowden was a traitor, I now see him as a whistleblower hero. He exposed our president as a spying, untrustworthy criminal. He was caught spying on our friends and allies.

With all the money President Obama and Co. are trying to spend to fix the “affordable” health care act, you could have a good start on pre-existing and catastrophic welfare health care coverage.

President Obama never seems to be aware of what's going on with his Cabinet until he hears it through the news.

Thursday night at 5:30 p.m. at the Kroger at St. Joe Center and Maplecrest roads. To the man in the Q4 black Infiniti with environmental plates and a Steelers sticker who, after dropping off a passenger, parked in the handicap space and waited, while in the rain people with handicap plates circled the lot looking for spots. He had no placard in the window.

I have to applaud the city of Angola and its administration for “not” wanting a strip club in “their” community. … It is shameful that Fort Wayne allows strip clubs here.

Does Monroeville have a full-time town marshal? … We have a person who has a lot of people hanging on a golf cart, kids and adults. It's not safe for all concerned.
