No guts on casino question

I personally do not agree with having a casino in Gettysburg. I understand that it would bring money into the town,but it has also ruined lives. It is another addiction that people do not need. I think as people we gamble with our lives all the time. I do not play the lottery, or gamble for monetary value only because it is easy to get out of control. we have enough problems with getting out of control with other issues. We don't need anymore. I know people who do gamble on a regular basis and I just feel the money they spend on gambling could have a better use. Like paying bills, or giving to the poor, or helping those in other countries. I have seen that they lose more than they win. Just my opinion of course for what it is worth. Funny how hard we work for our money, and then take some of it and throw it away hoping to make more.  (Apr 9, 2010 | post #48)

5 things to know about the tea party movement

What I do not like about the new health care bill is the fact that the government is so involved. They are taking away our choices. I would prefer to keep the bill the way it is for now and work on proposing a new bill. I am not sure why there was such a big flurry to get this bill passed. I know there are a lot of people that do not have insurance, but I think that they will not have insurance anyway with this new bill. Their fine will be taken out of their Federal Income tax refund at the end of the year. Either way the people lose. I am not against Obama as a person,but I am against his point of view on things. The fact that he is half black has nothing to do with my opinion of him. I have a grandson that is biracial. I love him dearly. My stand is that I do not agree with Obama's ideas. I also do not agree with Nancy Polosie either. I understand that people are angry about all these issues. I am too. But may God grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, the courage to change the things we can, and the widom to know the difference. That is all I have to say right now.  (Apr 9, 2010 | post #727)

Offering help for pregnant teens

I do not know this woman at all. I knew nothing about her until I read it in the news. It may be that the Lord is calling her to do this. So who are we to argue with the Lord.  (Mar 31, 2010 | post #53)

Democrats worried about Obama track record

The Tea Party stands for our right to form our own opinions without the government being involved. I do not believe in a government take over. I believe in the Constitution as it was formally written. We have certainly strayed from that. I do not pretend to know the whole constitution, but it does say We the people, and I feel that this President has left that out.I believe in a faith based constitution. One Nation Under God. I believe that we have also strayed from God.The problem is that some of the rallies seem to be too aggressive and that is not how it should be. I am a firm believer in a soft answer turns away anger. You can be firm about what you believe and not be angry. Everyone wants their cause to be the right, but what are they basing their cause on. Sometimes the hate mongers will infiltrate a completely peaceful protest,and I guess there is no control over that.I believe that the Tea party intention is to be peaceful,but firm in their stand.  (Mar 29, 2010 | post #1167)

McCain, Palin to campaign together in Arizona

I really get tired of all the nit picking as far as Sarah Palin, and John McCain go. What is wrong with so many people. If Sarah Palin is a hypocrite then so am I. They are only human like anyone else. How you judge others is how you will be judged.I agree with tampabayallstar. We need to treat people with respect.Just because you do not agree with their issues does not mean you have to get nasty. I certainly do not agree with everything Obama is doing,and I think he will be voted out of office, but that is how the system works. If you don't like someone you vote them out.  (Mar 28, 2010 | post #251)

YorkCounts: Police study should be completed this year

I don't think is such a good idea. It is going to cost the taxpayers more money.I thought we were suppose to cut back on spending. I have certainly tried to personally. I don't like this spread the wealth idea at all. Spreading the wealth is not going to the right people.  (Mar 28, 2010 | post #7)

What social security? It is all spent.The IRS will collect for those who do not have medical insurance. Now the banks are not going to give student loans anymore. The government is going to have control of that also. It will just go on and on. That is correct It is the first step of many more steps up their sleeve. Pelosi speaks the truth as she knows it. Pelosi is looking through dark colored glasses.  (Mar 26, 2010 | post #127)

Obama promises more than 600,000 stimulus jobs

Well I have not read the bill,and I doubt that anyone else has either.The bill is no doubt so confusing to read. I saw someone speeding reading it. Not too sure how accurate that is.I am not happy about the yea vote,but this is only a battle in a big war. some will lose and some will win.What I did not like was all the promises or bribes made to get the yea votes from the democrats. I am really really disappointed in our government. When November comes around I am sure there will be more changes.  (Mar 22, 2010 | post #45041)

Pa.'s 'Tea Party' finding strength in independence

Some people do not realize that our taxes are paying for all this stuff that is going on. We pay for the education that our children are getting and there are a lot of children that do not know how to read and how to spell. That is so obvious on the internet when they have to spell out words. Some of them cannot even read cursive writing. I know this for a fact.I have nieces and nephews that do not know how to spell. They are not being taught. Don't you get tired of paying for all this stuff and getting nothing in return? This is what the tea party is about. People that are tired of all this,and want to make changes.The tea party is made up of Republicans and Democrats, and Independents, Red, yellow,black. and white. North, South, East, and West. In God we should trust.Faith, Hope, and Charity.  (Mar 19, 2010 | post #123)

The fact that you said "Will there be a triceratops involved" Were you trying to be funny? Unless I miss your whole point of view here by that statement.  (Mar 19, 2010 | post #6)

Pa.'s 'Tea Party' finding strength in independence

The Tea Party is committed to standing together shoulder to shoulder, to protect our country and the constitution upon which we were founded. Not sure why no one would not want to be part of this.I guess it is because of all the progressive politics.  (Mar 18, 2010 | post #111)

That is the problem we do not expect to be ignorant and that is why the tea party is standing up and saying something. Being under the government's thumb is not being free as far as I am concerned. I agree with education. I think people should be educated,but I do not want the government telling me what I should know. or what I am not allowed to do. That is wrong.  (Mar 18, 2010 | post #108)

Pa.'s 'Tea Party' finding strength in independence

I have seen a lot of people at the tea parties,and what they looked like were the furthest thing from my mind. You must be a little superficial. Yes they are protesting the Health Care that Obam is trying to push. The tea party has nothing to do with hate or racism.I really do not think we should be spending money in this country that we do not have.I don't understand why they can't cut some of the needless spending like on global warming, the mating secrets of the ant or something on that order.  (Mar 17, 2010 | post #104)
