Edward Snowden, the man who disclosed the NSA’s vast surveillance programs on Americans, should be hailed as a true American hero. What our government is doing goes well beyond what our constitution allows. Anyone who believes we still live in a “free” country is naive.

Well now. Gary will spend $1.6 million, with the federal government paying the remaining 80 percent to total $8 million, for an access bridge to Majestic Star Casino. My crystal ball shows me, the state legislature approving a land-based casino! Guess what, we in Indiana will have an $8 million “bridge to nowhere.”

Maybe the Indiana casinos need to go smoke-free like Illinois. They are pretty busy over there.

If I ever drop out of high school, I can always get one of those jobs as TV advertising executives and make sick and moronic TV ads and make big bucks!

Before depicting Edward Snowden as a traitor et al, perhaps Benjamin Franklin‘s words might be appropriate: Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

What kind of a man knocks an old lady down to get her purse and hurts her to boot? One that deserves to spend a lot of time in the pen. What is the world coming to that someone would have no respect whatsoever? One too lazy to work for his money so he steals from old people.

God I hate summer! It brings out all the riff raff, walking around like zombies!
