Our View: Adams shows some backbone

What I find amusing is the 1st amendment to the Constitution, Freedom of the Press, was put there as a watch dog on government to keep the public (us) informed of what the government was doing. They have failed us completely. Instead of reporting on corruption, they've actually encouraged it by not bringing it to light. They were given the responsibility to ferret out corruption for the public not indorse it. They were suppose to expose lies and deceit in WE the Peoples government not propagate it. Example: at least three nominees for the newly elected administration have been found to not pay their taxes. How long has this been going on, how many more appointed and elected officials are guilty of this, and we only hear about these 3 now. If the FREE PRESS was doing what they were intended to do, we would have been informed when it first happened not when they were being confirmed to a higher position. The press failed. The press has been failing to do their job for decades and now the citizen are paying because we were not truthfully informed of the corruption in our government. Now we get called names by the very same press that did such a miserable job informing us as to what has been going on behind the scenes.  (Feb 6, 2009 | post #115)

Our View: Adams shows some backbone

P.S. to my earlier post. Ever hear the parable of the grasshopper and the ants. The ants were busy at work when a grasshopper can along. The grasshopper found a shade tree, got out his fiddle, played the summer away while the ants (taxpayes) worked storing provisions for the winter. Then the snow came and the grasshopper cold and starving went to the ants (taxpayers)because he was going to die if the ants(taxpayers) didn't save him. This State has become the story of ants (taxpayers) and the grasshopper, only thing is the grasshopper has become locust, they eat everything in sight and then not only do the locust die but they take the ants (taxpayers) with them.  (Feb 5, 2009 | post #80)

Anti-tax zombies" that's what we are because we believe we have a right to at least part of what we earn. This State has found an excuse to enact a program for every group of people possible. You don't have as much as your neighbor here's a program so you do. It's not fair that someone working can afford a new car, we'll raise your welfare check so you can have one too. What ever happened to someone enjoying the fruits of their labor. Why do those that work hard become responsible for those that don't. That's why we find ourselves in this mess. When the first settlers came to this country they started with the idea to share and share alike. It took one season for them to realize that if you were going to get whether you did anything or not they divided up the land and each kept what they produced. Those that didn't produce, parished. Every new program we establish, encourages more and more to produce less. Why produce if you don't have any consequences if you don't. No one is suggesting letting anyone starve, but making sure that non producers standard of living is on par with the producers is criminal. You steal from those that work (and that includes State Workers) so freeloaders don't feel short changed in life. How did we survive 20 years ago without all these handouts, those that didn't contribute had a far lower standard of living that those that worked. The way it should be. It's time we start remembering that working people have a right to a higher standard of living than those that depend on their generosity. So if that makes me an "anti-tax zombie" I guess I am, I just believe it's up to me to decide how I'm going to live and then work to accomplish it. It's not the taxpayers responibly to fulfill my desires.  (Feb 5, 2009 | post #78)

Scrappers hit hard

As we can see the down side for some, let's look at the rest of the story. Our street lights might just work because the copper wasn't stolen. Schools might still have their plumbing. Our statues might still be standing on the pedistools in the morning and no one will have to worry if manhole covers are still there when they drive to work. What's the down side again. The taxpayers won't have to replace what the "down trodden" think they have a right to STEAL? Hard times are here for most of us, but that doesn't give anyone the right to steal from all of us.  (Jan 4, 2009 | post #1)

MY TURN:Inside the Empire State Building crash

The difference is only 9 years, that would make the narrator of this story only 7 years old. So either someone got the date wrong for the crash our the narrator is just telling a story that sounds good. Can't have it both ways. 1945= 64 years ago 1954= 54 years ago narrator 52 years old would have been born 1956. So what's the truth here?  (Jan 4, 2009 | post #4)

Medical marijuana user to sue SB County

It's just to bad that law enforcement in San Bernardino and San Diego Counties couldn't be as diligent in enforcing our Federal immigration laws as they are with Federal Marijuana laws. The benefit of enforcing our immigration would far supercede any benefit that going after medical marijuana could bring.  (Jan 2, 2009 | post #3)

Immigration law makes deportations easy - but life hard

Coming to the U.S. is a privilege not a Right. Once here the immigrant has an obligation to obey the Laws of THIS LAND. You don't want to obey the law then you get what you deserve, sent back where you came from. It's simple. We don't need to import criminals we have enough of our own. As for the $675 to become a citizen, considering what you're asking for, sounds cheap. And if you don't think so, no one is begging you to stay, you have a choice, GO HOME. There are millions wanting to come here, will obey the Laws once here, and find the $675 very reasonable. If something is worth having, it's worth paying for, and lets face it, you can't steal citizenship no matter who you are..  (Dec 31, 2008 | post #7)

Yes and what about the fact the Lake Gregory is filing with silt. The geniuses in office turned down an offer to do the Lake for free. Can't waste taxpayer money when someone offers to do it for free. So our Lake is filling with silt and the city is loosing revenue because no one wants to swim in a Lake you can walk across.  (Dec 26, 2008 | post #1)

LB jury hears final pleas for killer

His victims got the death penalty without the benefit of arrest, charges, trial or defence. So with all the amenities afforded the murderer why should his sentence be any less severe. Frankly I'm tired of criminals using the abuse defence. Did any of his victims have anything to do with his suppose abuse, for that matter did they even know he was supposedly abused? Why should the victims pay for someone else's actions? It's about time the victims and their loved ones are afforded some justice for crimes inflicted against them. Why should all the compassion or mercy be directed toward the perpetrator not the victims families, the victim is beyond compassion and mercy was never shown by the murderer. If you want to drag God into this, live by the sword, die by the sword, this would apply to guns, and knives also.  (Dec 20, 2008 | post #11)
