To my wife's chagrin, I often engage telemarketers and pollsters in conversation when they call.

That is one of the most dumbest articles
the HL has ever printed.
Al has no idea what he is talking about.
He lies and has missed the point.
He knows what Obama has done.
But doesn't want to believe it.
He has been told to believe whatever the
democrats tell him to believe.
He doesn't have a mind of his own.
He is a mindless follower.

Obama care.
Nuff said. The guy was doing a job. You want to pick his brain about details?

I suspect that he is some hourly employee hired to do that, and no more an expert than some third world tech support person that is only on the job due to Obama's stimulus package.

Would you feel better if the black panthers had came to your house with bats to insure you vote for Obama like they did in Philadelphia?

Algae, how much was your dividend check from Obama Cars? You know which ones, since you "own" them. I am sure you sit back in your smug little socialist classroom expounding on the virtues of the government owning private enterprise. That is another issue you should have with Obama, but I am sure that you don't.

Let me ask you this . What has Obama done that is good for our nation? Oh, and don't try to tell me how the economy would have really tanked if he would not have given jobs and money to big financial gurus(you will like that word)and institutions (his choice).

One last question. Since we have now seen the extension of the war in Afghansistan, the systematic removal of governments in Egypt, Lybia and soon Syria(replaced with the muslim brotherhood for yours and his convenience), a continuing presence in Iraq, a supported overthrow attempt in Iran, and a willingness to jump on the bandwagon to destroy Israel, how is that Nobel Peace Prize working for you?? What a JOKE this whole Presidency is!!!

To your wife and children chagrin, they have to put up with your nonsense. I feel sorry for them having to live in the same house with you, listening to this all the rest of their lives. And how is Buddism and Christianity working out for you. Wife?

Funny and sad how the message behind Algernon's piece has apparently flown over the heads of our Topix regulars.

Matt, what message did the article convey to you?? It was nothing more than a pat on Obam bam's back by Algae. Nothing unusual. What is sad is that he used the article to show a supposed intellectual superiority over a call center employee who probably does his or her job to keep one. For all those like you and algae, Matt, that see no wrong in the path we have been led down, there are just as many that do. Your liberal indoctrination in the media and education is apparent. Is that the MESSAGE you wish to impart. Or is it that some people can be led so easily to other's conclusions. See Algernon the enlightened (Matt??)


Matt, Algae is a big boy, and can defend himself. You have a right to post your opinion on this forum as a reader, much like everyone else. But if you are defending him from your inkspot, then you should try being a little less biased. I am a big boy also, and will make up my own mind. Your occasional rants do little to sway me. I just can't see the breadth of knowledge and sense of balance you bring to the table as a journalist. Just my Opinion. Oh, and Algae, don't take offense to the enlightened comment I made about you. How could you. You consider yourself in exactly that light. The worst part is that you use your role as a teacher to lead those same simple minds to your world views. And Matt somehow misses that as well.

Nothing went over my head. Politics is a game to the chosen few, and knaves like us get to pay the price for it.

We are responsible for letting people become wards of the state and slaves to the government.

I find it truly amazing that people stand around and stomp their feet and wonder in amazement at how New Mexico is so poor and Luna county so bleak and then continue to vote in the same party over and over, much like the subjects in California, Detroit and New York City.
