To Deafened: The bikes are loud so four-wheelers don't hit us. - Story City 50248 Building wind tower farms to harness the power for electricity sounds like a great idea for saving us heating and cooling costs here in central Iowa since many of the farms are nearby.

Wouldn't they laugh at Obama if he wanted to run for president and had swiss bank accounts, money in
the Cayman Islands, hid his income taxes, etc. They would say that he was unAmerican and not patriotic. Why the different standard for Mitt Romney. I think Romney is too dishonest to be our
president.
What he does with his AFTER TAX money is his business. Dishonesty? Obama is just as bad.

Romney supports the middle class he says. I guess that's the middle class that makes 500,000 or less. Those poor people.
Based on what? Be specific.

Don't live in the past, learn from it. The economy is slowly coming back. It would have come back quicker if some politicians hadn't signed a contract no to agree with anything the President presented to them. Please look at Romneys past record and the millionaires and the corporations that are backing him. Vote NO Romney and keep our country moving forward.
Nice try. You failed. BOTH candidates are getting MAJOR contributions from corporations and PACs. Why aren't you promoting Obama's record? Oh...I see why.

Be sure to go to the correction location to vote on November 6th. Check your voters card or call the election office.

Apparently the Registers common sense endorsement of Romney was a bit of a surprise to the Des Moines moneyed demorcratics. Obama has been a bad president, it's that simple. It's not a D/R thing, it's a bad job thing.

This country's economy is way outta the ditch, where Bush left it....last month, Obama was finally to replace every job lost, during the Bush Recession....no more banking crisis, no more financial institution crisis, no more mortgage crisis, wall street at 13,500(7400 with Bush), auto sales way up, consumer confidence up, retail sales up, Home construction up 15%, highest in four years, building permits up, Osama Bin Laden dead.....maybe your right, let's use some common sense.....

I always thought the comics in the newspaper were supposed to be funny. They're called funnies, cartoons, comics so they should make you laugh. Some of them are disgusting, especially Dilbert.

The Dancing with The Stars contest winner should not be determined by public call in votes. That makes it nothing but a popularity contest. Many of those people haven't a clue what dancing is. It should be judged by more than 3 professional dancers.

As several edtitorials have said, the death penalty and gun control are not the solution. It's mental health.

As a result of the looming fiscal cliff and the two parties proclaiming who to sacrifice--it is clear to me that my party should be the Democrats.
Attaining the American Dream is a joke. It is rigged by the pleutocrats that run this country and they are trying to prevent this country from
becoming educated. Keep us dumb--stop early childhood education, give the school loans back to
the banks,etc and don't dare touch the rich and powerful. Give them the tax breaks,let them hide money overseas and not pay taxes on this money. The poor man will go to jail for not paying his taxes. Why must the poor and middleclass be the only patriotic American.

stores like Kohls, Peneys, Walmart,etc.should have chairs or benches throughout the store so people could sit and rest. It might be to their benefit if people would rest and get a second wind, maybe they would stay and shop a little longer.

The other night Jay Leno was making fun of the Iowa Supreme Court for their decision on the woman that was fired because she was too attractive. Up until now the Iowa Supreme Court was just a local joke but now they are a joke on national tv.

It is nice to see how fast and good our side streets gets done after a snow storm. Two hours later comes the blood thirsty ticket givers.
