I like the Scott Walker comments. He will be our next president!

Communities have Oktoberfest in September because the Oktoberfest in Munich is the 16 days leading up to the beginning of October. September also offers better weather so towns run less chance of poor weather causing a bad turnout.

Prior to Augustus and Julius Caesar there were 10 months in the year and harvest occurred in the eighth month ... October!

Why do so many celebrations include the releasing of helium balloons? This is as much littering as is throwing a fast-food bag out the window of your car. In fact, it can be worse if animals eat the balloon or get tangled up in it. Please do not ever release balloons. It is litter.

To those who think arming everyone will stop gun violence, explain why a well-armed naval base would sustain deaths after a shooter enters the base.

Hurry! Buy stock in companies that make metal detectors. We’ll soon need them in every workplace, school, mall, grocery, theater and restaurant. Thanks, gun nuts, for blasting away at our lifestyle.

There was no point in publishing the gory details of the mass shooting in DC. The NRA has convinced everyone they are in grave danger if they’re not armed at all times, so guns are everywhere and mass shootings have become routine. Every disgruntled employee or angry spouse is dangerous. We might as well get used to these horrors.

I blame every liberal today for turning work places into killing fields. By making them gun-free zones, the only ones who carry are the hate-filled criminals. Good job, kooks.
