This was taken from March 7, 2011: Oil prices surged to near $107 per barrel yesterday and regular gasoline is going for $3.51 per gallon. last March oil sold for around $80 per barrel and gas cost about $2.79 per gallon. Can one of the local gas station owners explain why we are still paying $3.67 for a gallon of gas? Congress needs to realize that entitlements have created the situation that we find ourselves in. more entitlements certainly won’t solve the problem. Tax reform might help but only if used to pay down the debt rather than creating more entitlements to buy votes. the problem is that Congress has proven that they can’t be trusted to do that. “Government is not the solution to our problem. Government is the problem.” — President Ronald Reagan. I see more and more commercials about using natural gas to power our vehicles with. I don’t know about you, but natural gas to heat my home with is expensive enough. If we start using natural gas to power our vehicles, I don’t know how people are going to afford to heat their homes. I already cut back because I can’t afford to heat it and keep it very warm. Natural gas is a crazy idea. It’s as bad as ethanol made from corn. the wholesale price of gas fell 10 cents a gallon and 19 cents a gallon last Thursday. Today it’s down 11 cents, a total of 40 cents. Jacksonville stations have only gone down three cents in the same period. Tattoos, ah those are the good things, kinda like piercings. Women can do anything a man can do and more. Don’t forget women have kids, can you imagine what would happen if a man tried to have kids? there would be no more, they wouldn’t like it. So for a woman to enjoy a tattoo is a sign of her being who she is, not all like them but some do. Men need to get a grip, they are afraid women will take over. Men, would you like a cookie because women are taking the cake on this one? If you think that tattoos on women are simply a matter of style or individual taste, then you don’t know about the historical meaning of tattooed women. In 19th century America, some women were forced to wear tattoos. In those days, a tattoo symbolized that a woman was a person of loose morals. Perhaps this designation still applies today. at least, that’s my opinion. So now the “state” will start confiscating lost money, etc., after a year. the family, once and if they find it, can claim the cash but not the interest. Legal theft by the state? We should all have to play by the same rules. Some on Open Line must be 200 years old. They couldn’t become so stupid in a normal lifetime. Number one, U.S. Navy Seals do not do their operations in Army National Guard helicopters; they have their own. this is lie number one about our U.S. Navy Seals’ recent deaths. Lie number two, U.S. Navy Seals helicopters do not hold 38 people onboard. Lie number three about the U.S. Navy Seals: When they are sent on missions and die, rarely does the whole country know, it is kept top secret and only the wives and families of the fallen U.S. Navy Seals are told and their fellow squad members. It’s not made public by the news media. Obama’s excuses are a sign of weakness. a strong person does not make excuses because they are proud to take full ownership of their decisions and resolute in their vision of the future. When there is no vision, however, as we have now, the people will perish. Way to go Dumbacrats, for electing the next Herbert Hoover, BHO. you know you’re a redneck if you’re eating a burger from McDonald’s once every week. Hey Quinn. How’s about instead of raising our taxes, cut the medical cards and Link card program? If the do-nothings don’t like it, they can move to another state. I have my own children to pay for. Please tell me you were kidding when you said that the military should be the first ones to lose their paychecks and you want military spending to be cut? Perhaps we should take away their expensive guns and give them sling-shots. the military protects your whiny butt from being overrun by radicals. I will continue to pay taxes at a lower rate than our chauffeurs, butlers and lawn boys. I did create a new job though when I hired a dogwalker for my wolfhound. In this person’s ignorance they undo what they are trying to say. Four people are paid to work by this “imagined “ wealthy person. Can you do that Mr. Complainer and Kool-Aid drinker? Obama gets on TV Aug. 8 and says Congress is working hard to solve the financial crisis over the downgrade in credit rating. What an idiot. Congress is not in session until after Labor Day. Maybe someone should tell him lawmakers all went home. Oblamer, gone January 2013. the correct policy is exactly opposite of what Obama wants. the trick is to stop wasting and throwing good money out the window. Apparently the United States of America is too big of a community for Obama to organize. I still can’t believe we elected this loser. Hey Mr. two Percenter, don’t forget to thank your fellow Republicans for holding the debt ceiling hostage just long enough to get the U.S. downgraded. If you are what you say you are, and not just a wannabe, you can’t be happy with the way the market is going. Serves you right, hope you lose it all. Maybe my taxes will go down when I’m not still supporting your dead weight. Michele Bachmann looking crazy on the cover of a magazine, imagine that. Crazy is as crazy looks, the camera doesn’t lie. the Bush tax cuts increased tax revenues to record levels. I challenge you Democrats and Obama lovers to go to the IRS website and look up the figures for yourself. I bet you won’t, you don’t want to know the truth. It’s easier to live in your little bubble world where everything is Bush’s fault and rich Republicans hate poor people. Shheesh. Grow up. News flash: Obama blames the teleprompter for bad leadership skills. you guys need to understand Obama wasn’t taking care of the millions of homeless people in America or the financial well being of this country or the millions that are out of work. no, Obama was taking care of more important things like getting re-elected and passing laws for gay marriage and blaming others for his mistakes. Would be nice to see a local person go against Rep. Aaron Schock, Peoria Republican politician, the one that voted to turn Medicare over to the greedy insurance companies. I aim to keep this issue in front of the public, angry Senior. Newsweek got it all wrong. Howard Dean is the queen of rage and Al Gore is the second runner up. Obama will now go down in history as our downgrade president, having reduced our debt rating. That will ensure him the falling into the classification as one of the worst presidents we’ve ever had in this country. To the person making the comment about the” drunken idiots at the Redneck Fishing Tournament.” I’m sorry that your life is so boring that you don’t know how to have fun. It’s a fundraiser for the community. get over it, try to have some fun. If the mayor wanted to spur the local economy, he could investigate the local gas station owners who are stealing the money we should be saving on gas. It has dropped again today, as I speak, it’s at $2.68 a gallon. We’re paying a dollar more than the price. I know there are taxes in there, I’m not stupid, but we are paying at least 40 cents more than we should be. the gas station owners are stealing our money. I was wondering if they are getting more jobs. I have a son who is getting frustrated with not being able to find a job. He’s not the only one, his friends are getting frustrated too. They have got to get some jobs or people are going to be in worse shape than they are in now. I have to thank President Obama and Congress for my mortgage interest going up and my credit card interest going up. Thank you, I need to spend more money on that. I want to congratulate the one who writes the Mini Page. That is just great. even as an adult I read every word. It is fun to read and really great. I don’t think we need a president who is so full of religion he can’t do his job. he can’t distinguish between government and praying. We don’t want to lose our country. as if the polar ice caps aren’t melting fast enough, now I see that there are people who want to pull icebergs to Africa to water the African plains. I think that’s a mistake. the death of the Navy Seals is Obama’s fault because he is pulling out the troops too soon. President Bush would have never allowed that to happen. the fact that Obama has destroyed the country’s credit rating with his irresponsible spending is grounds for impeachment. Gas in Roodhouse and White Hall is $3.39 and like always we’re getting screwed over in Jacksonville. What’s up with that? Obama’s attempts at using fancy rhetoric to solve our nation’s problems have failed. this man needs to go and he needs to go quickly. the downgrade doesn’t sound very good and it has only happened to President Obama. They closed another one of the Jacksonville facilities so Quinn can give another one of his PR ladies double her salary so she’d have a nice salary. “…give me your tired, your poor. Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door.” I hope no one wasted their time going to the Alsey picnic. It was a joke. Way to go mayor, they are calling it Fayville now. Do you ever notice the Democrats call it their right to recount votes, but if Republicans do it, it’s call being a sore loser? Double standards for sure. really, you can. Why do you want to wear pants, huh? I don’t get it. those District 117 Board members that vote to close our neighborhood schools, Washington and Franklin, will be punished by voters. They better start looking for new jobs. of course Ray LaHood’s not a true Republican. he cares about what happens to ordinary working people, which is what you are only you’re too stupid to know it. you think if you keep kissing the behinds of the real Repukes they’ll eventually throw you a bone. keep being their lap dogs and see where that gets you. What Obama had is called a fundraiser, political candidates have been having them for years. Only Republicans have wealth, clearly you’re on fixed noise overload. What, are you five? It’s not about double standards, it’s about right and wrong. All this women’s lib has destroyed the family and it shows in the youth now. like it or not, that’s the truth. Wake up Americans, this is your country. Obamics is not working. Obama never could walk on water, like some thought. he does not have a clue, God bless our troops and God bless America. God is our only hope and change. as expensive as the high school yearbook is it would be nice to not have to see the same big photos of teacher’s kids plastered all over the book. Thank God Ray LaHood is not a true Republican. I have known Ray for a long time and he uses common sense to attack a problem. Something the rich people loving Republicans know nothing about. “Were we directed from Washington when to sow and reap, we should soon want bread.” — Thomas Jefferson. Twenty-two brave Navy Seals were killed. Is this a sign of something more sinister than being reported? God bless our troops and God bless America. no liberals, our problems are not caused by the Constitution, but rather by your ignorance of the Constitution. Why is the FBI wasting money and time on a 40-year-old case of D.B. Cooper. there are more important cases to work on instead of wasting tax payer dollars. whoever said Obama never has a plan needs to realize that he always has a plan, go on vacation again. That is always Obama’s plan. That is all he knows how to do. the Department of Education has found a cure for the bad scores that most of the school districts are getting. Exempt them from testing. the fact is that the bad scores don’t point to a failure of the schools but rather the failure of the Department of Education. by the time the schools complete all the bureaucratic mandates, the indoctrination of our students with revisionist history, social reformation, and the green agenda, there is little or no time left to teach reading, math and science. the solution is to shut down the Department of Education and get out of the way so that teachers can teach. the singularity is upon us. Obama played chicken with Republicans and tea partiers and lost. All you people seeing what has happened in Greece, Spain, Ireland and now England beware, it’s coming to America. You’re going to get to experience it in every major city, anarchy, riots, and blood shed. you can thank the NWO which equals the new World Order, and no they are not a bunch of liberals or neo-cons, they are global elite who are destroying our economies world wide. for the idiot in Open Line posting about entitlements on 8/9/11 for your information, and everyone else’s, marijuana is not addictive. this myth has to be stopped. It also does not lead a person to harder drugs, that is another myth. That needs to be squashed. for a supposed teacher you’re not very well educated on drugs. Might try going to rehab and learning from addicts, real addicts. To the teacher in the Open Line on 8/9/11 who posted about entitlements and being drunk and not taking care of our yards and all the rest of his rant. most of us do not have enough money or are not physically able to take care of our yards, we become depressed and alcohol is always a good friend. then again, some of us don’t give a fat rats what you think you over educated punk. Why don’t you try working a real man’s job? To the alleged teacher who posted in Open Line comments on 8/9/11 about entitlements. Maybe if you worked a more physically demanding job and didn’t have that wise mouth education and you hurt your back or were paralyzed on the job you’d have a different view of government entitlements. you sir are what is wrong with the children in this country not having any respect for the elderly or disabled. You’d first have to understand that everyone is different, not everyone is healthy nor can they ever be. Nobody is going to lose any entitlements. the government isn’t going to do away with these programs, or what would all the illegal immigrants do for money who’ve came here besides sell drugs? Suspect any politician trying to use the Lord to get elected. Suspect right wing Texan Republican Rick Perry. Mr. Mayor have you checked out the mud flats on the east end of the lake? you should plant corn rather than waste our money dredging. Another project just like the downtown, doing it only half way.
