I wish to take this opportunity to thank the compassionate conservatives for reducing my food stamps just in time for Thanksgiving.

Give us a break with the cellphones.

We can hear you screaming into it two aisles over in a grocery store. What is so important that you have to be on it for everyone to hear your business?

This Nov. 26 will be the 38-year anniversary of the first time I kissed my wife, Joanne! It was on Chicago’s East Side on Avenue O in my Aunt Claire’s backyard at 6:30 p.m. and it was snowing huge snow flakes! I still get goose bumps telling that story every year!

Now that insurance rates have become the center of attention, maybe people will wake up and see how much of what we pay for health care goes to provide massive profits for the insurance industry. They’re not in it for their health, you know, and not ours either. They are corporations whose job-one is to make profits for stockholders. A single-payer system is the only sane way to go.

A lot of criticism has been directed toward the Obama administration concerning the roll-out of the new health care law and what the president told us about our current health insurance coverage. But what about the Democrats in Congress who voted for the law without knowing what was in the law?

Why do some men insist on speaking for the women in their lives? Stop being so controlling, they can talk for themselves.

When anyone speaks of privatization, they are talking about cutting service and making a profit. What do you think that means for our children and our schools? Certainly not the best possible education.
