I buy lottery scratch-off tickets in Indianapolis, and I have more winners than from the tickets I buy in Crown Point.

Maybe we, the people, need to place Congress under house arrest without pay until members resolve this so-called fiscal crisis. That would include no holiday parties in or out of the Capitol.

The fiscal cliff is nothing more than a contrived crisis.

“Scary fiscal cliff”? Congress has left Washington for a long weekend. My husband is leaving for another 10-hour shift to support his family. Who is really working for us?

I know it’s not just me. Have you seen these lovely licensed drivers from Northwest Indiana? When they get their renewal stickers in the mail, they put the new year everywhere but over the expired year. How stupid can you be?

Whenever I get a notice
from a service provider
that opens with “To better serve you … ” it really means the cost will go up and my service will go down.

You don’t win an argument just because you can talk louder than the other person.

The people who drink too much and use drugs are the first to tell someone to mind their own business.

Hey, if a homeowner has had a blue tarp on his roof for more than five years, does that make it an improvement? And, if there is mold growing all over the exterior of the house, does that mean he’s going green? Nope, just another lazy neighbor.

Would someone please tell me, if people hate being in jail, why do they go there?
