She has a beutiful daughter who is just the sweetest little girl I have ever seen. I love that little girl. As for Tiffany herself, I like her. She has always been nice to me.  (Nov 6, 2012 | post #2)

Does Beach boy mean you are from Pontoon Beach? Glad to hear I wasn't the only one who liked it. I used to get the buffalo chicken sandwich in Glen Carbon at a place called Fireside, but they closed down several years ago. I haven't found another one until this one, so I was happy about finding it and then to find it was even better than the one at fireside. The floors are cool, but I think they need a bigger TV for football games! I wonder if they have the NFL network for Thursday night games?  (Oct 29, 2012 | post #19)

Wiskey Jakes Roadhouse

I went to Wiskey Jake's Roadhouse because I had seen some of the chatter last week about it being open and I live just down the road from it. So I took my girlfriend there last Friday night for dinner. I have to say I was impressed with what I ordered. Sandwich with fries was only $7.95. After I finished my meal, I was so impressed with it I asked to see the cook who introduced himself as Joe. Joe came out to my table and I explained to him how the buffalo chicken sandwich I ordered was the best I have ever eaten without a doubt. WOW! Every bite was as juicy and flaverful as the first. The fies were good too, but the sandwich was plain excellent. I recommend, if you go there to eat, that you try this sandwich.  (Oct 26, 2012 | post #1)

I just hope you and your wife are saving that money you are making and putting it up for retirement, because if you vote for Romney, you will sure need it. Us poor folks who don't make enough money to put away are the ones in trouble when you place your vote. Think about the folks who work their lives away and can never afford to put money back and still have to pay the same percentage you do and still make ends meet. They would like to have programs in place that will help when they retire, expecially programs they pay into their whole lives and Romney wants to do away with. Romney is never going to win this election anyway. He can't stop saying stupid stuff and I can't wait to watch and see what he will do in the debate on Wednesday night. He always comes through for the media.  (Oct 2, 2012 | post #72)

I had a good job myself until October 2010 and after lossing my job I drew unemployment until Aug. 2011 at which time I took a job making (believe it or not)$200.00 less every two weeks than my unemployment. I didn't cry about it, I just jumped in and did what I needed to do to pay my bills. I am still working that job and barely making ends meet each month, but would rather be working than sitting on my butt at home. If you have truely lost your job, then you should be thankful that Obama went to bat for you and got you unemployment extentions as he did. Things will eventually turn around, but sometimes folks need help getting there and that doesn't make them deadbeats as Romney puts it. You will not find a Republican politician who will help when you are down like a Demacrat will.  (Sep 24, 2012 | post #56)

You are very misinformed about what redistribution really is if you think the way you do and if you believe anything Romney says at this point. Have you not heard the vidio tape where he said he didn't care about you or me. Do you want to be on a valture program and have the insurance companies raise their prices on you even more making it imposible to get a doctor to see you because you have medicare not to metion the costs of medications going up even more. My parents are on medicare and are struggling to pay for a supplement insurence now. I work in the health field and I know you don't want Romneys solution to medicare or even understand what Romney will do to seniors if he gets in office not to mention teachers and the american worker period. The Republicans have nothing but ill feelings toward the american worker as it is now. To them, we are all bottom feeders who are looking for a hand out. Demicrats may not have enough backbone to get things done, because they have something called compassion for others, but Republicans don't have this trate at all, and are the sort of people who when you are down they will step on your head and grind it further into the ground so you can't get back up. As for not going through congress for Lybia. Give me a brake! We would still be waiting on congress to do something. They can't get anything done. Or if they had decided to do something, it would have been the Republican answer to everything. Lets go to war!  (Sep 21, 2012 | post #42)

I hate to be disrespectful to a senior citizen, but you my fellow american are an idiot! All your fellow republican are sure running fast to put some space between them and your beloved Mitt Romney now arn't they. Just goes to show you what he really thinks of america's senior citizen on social security they paid into all their lives. He doesn't even care about them. He said so himself. And you want to defend the guy? What kind of a nut job are you anyway?  (Sep 21, 2012 | post #40)

Obama can't run the companies for them ya know. His intentions were good with Solaris, but he did not start the bail out process, Busch did and the Republican's spearheaded that before he even was in office. It was left to him to make it happen while the country waited for it to do what everyone was saying it would do and that never happened. He only followed through on what all the experts at the time said would help the oncomming recession and depression if the banks were allowed to fall. Here is something to think about. Salary of retired US Presidents ..............$180 ,000 FOR LIFE Salary of House/Senate .................. ......$174,000 FOR LIFE This is stupid Salary of Speaker of the House .............$223, 500 FOR LIFE This is really stupid Salary of Majority/Minority Leaders ....... $193,400 FOR LIFE Ditto last line Average Salary of a teacher ............... $40,065 Average Salary of Soldier DEPLOYED IN AFGHANISTAN ....... $38,000 I think we can see where the cuts should be made!  (Aug 22, 2012 | post #19)

Well it sounds like to me that you don't know what your talking about and just like to bitch. If you think for one minute that Romney is going to work harder for the middle class or poor than Obama, then I know you don't have a clue what you're talking about. Romney has stolen from and made a living off the backs of the middle class and poor all his working life. Why do you think he would be any differant as our president? I know, that if you live in GC you have to be part of the working class or poor, so what do you think Romney can do to help you. He wants to go back to the old trickle down (Republican)way of thinking and says he don't raise taxes, but wants to give tax breaks to the wealthiest americans. He himself cheats the government out of taxes by keeping his money in the Camin Ilands. He only pays taxes on capital gains from invested money. Which I truely cannot understand why he thinks this is ok with the average american, because Romney in his lifetime could never spend the money he has right now, why wouldn't he want to pay at least the same percentage of taxes you and I pay to his country. It couldn't hurt him and just maybe if people who are in this situation did pay their fair share the country would be better off for it. Their country! The same one they are saying they want to serve! The same country they will die in and still have more money than they could possibly spend if they had another life time to do it.  (Aug 21, 2012 | post #9)
