Talk of the County

Young victims

These young victims of gun violence are pawns of the Democratic Party’s agenda to get guns banned. Do you really think the gangs and criminal types won’t be able to get a gun? Instead, stay inside your home after dark and keep off the streets where the predators are lurking. It’s a jungle out there.

After the fact

What good does CeaseFire do to have rallies after someone dies? Why not before? Everything is after the fact. Why aren’t they stopping the murders? The money that CeaseFire gets could be used for more patrolmen.

Gangbanger heaven

Regarding the teen killed hours after her sister attended Obama’s speech. She was 18 years old and was walking down an alley in North Chicago near 13th Street. That’s gangbanger heaven over there. These kids getting shot at night are in the wrong place at the wrong time. What are they doing there? A little common sense goes a long way.

Held hostage

It seems like the average American citizen is held hostage by record high gas prices. Can anyone help? It’s getting hard to afford to put gas into my car.

Setting an example

I don’t know why any basketball team would want Mr. Richmond. I thought sports were supposed to set examples for our children. What example is this setting? That you can break the law and still do what you want? These types of cases are why the youth in our communities are they way they are. Crime will never stop because you get a slap on you had and that’s it. Shame on any team that takes this young man. This story is all over the papers and streets and our children are hearing and reading about it.


Wow! A doctor orders an unnecessary procedure to keep a person hospitalized longer. Is that ethical or is that fraud? The person encourages everyone to do this. It’s no wonder Medicare is in trouble. AARP hasn’t paid for observation for many years, so don’t blame the current president. By the way, I call it Romneycare.

Carbon footprint

Where is the president’s concern about the carbon footprint when he is flying all over the country unnecessarily pushing his programs as if he was up for re-election instead of staying in Washington doing the job he was elected to do? He is not only causing air pollution, but spending millions of dollars in fuel, security, etc. Yet he wants us all to go into debt and purchase electric cars! What a hypocrite!
