Thank you to Judge George Paras for his common-sense ruling on the right-to-work case. Watching the Little League World Series is such a thrill. It makes me remember why I love baseball so much. Government wanting to nullify Second Amendment, local police forces with tanks. …

A young Gary teenager arguing with his mother had the audacity to challenge a police officer to fight him. Why doesn’t anyone respect the police? I wouldn’t have their job if they paid me a million bucks a year. Not all of us profess to …

So far, I haven’t seen 80-year-old ladies getting knocked to the ground and robbed in Crown Point or shootings at Merrillville night clubs committed by illegal immigrants. The difference in people who work and those who don’t work is amazing. I can’t wait to see …

Any politician who refuses to release their taxes is hiding something. Don’t we already have enough crooked politicians? (Re: Robin Williams) It is sad to lose such talent and life. Why does TV have to be so graphic concerning his manner of death? Couldn’t they …

I believe dental maintenance is a personal responsibility and should be handled by the individual. There is a lot of evidence that fluoride added to the water has ill health effects aside from the fact that it’s unethical because it’s being provided without informed consent. …

A long time ago, on Oct. 14, 2003, I had some South Side friends, Sox fans, who gave me hell when Moises Alou didn’t come away with the catch and the Cubs unraveled. Well, you see, Sox fans, it can happen to anyone at any …

I have read some really ignorant rants in Quickly but one on the very top of the list is about supporting one’s parents on Social Security. They paid into that fund. It is their money. Refuse to work? I don’t think so. Get your head …

Could not agree more. Let’s concentrate on someone’s credentials and not them being the first woman, black, Hispanic, Asian or whatever. I think that is very divisive. Only the credentials matter. From my paycheck, 6.2 percent is a deduction for Social Security and 1.45 percent …

What has happened to Mayor Tom McDermott’s delusions of grandeur? Did he ever really think he had a chance of being our governor? Loretta Rush was the right pick for the next chief justice of the Indiana Supreme Court. I just wish the focus would …

Richard Nixon once proposed a health care reform plan that was almost identical to the ACA. The individual mandate was supported by the conservative Heritage Foundation for a long time. We should be calling the ACA either “Nixoncare” or “Heritagecare.” I think we should cede …

Texas ranks 32 in states least dependent on federal money. Bottom half, even beat by Indiana at 25. Beat by all northeastern states. Mississippi most dependent at 50. So, no, Texas would not be one of the richest countries in the world if it left …

Dad never had a problem with money. He didn’t have any. Mom spent it all. When is someone going to fix the water problem on County Line Road and 61st Avenue? Are you waiting until the road collapses and someone dies? Enough already. Pastor Jack …

Wish Texas would secede from the union. Then we would only have to keep Texans out of the U.S. Why do we have an ethics law in Indiana? And are those who have to rule on a violation always friends of the accused? Sometimes loving …

Democrats are ruining America giving welfare to illegal aliens. Republicans are ruining America giving welfare to Big Business. You are ruining America by never criticizing your own party. Obamacare by any other name would smell just as bad. Rush Limbaugh does indeed spew hatred. What …

The number of presidential executive orders are as follows: Obama 183, Bush 290, Clinton 363, Ronald Reagan 290, Nancy Reagan 90. I listen to Rush Limbaugh three or four days a week. I think he is honest. He just says what every Republican thinks. Take …

Even Republicans are getting sick and tired of Boehner and his do-nothing traitors in the House. They couldn’t agree on when to get their limos washed. Now they’re off on a five-week vacation to raise money to get re-elected. Talk about welfare. Yes, I’ve been …
