Parochial schools

In response to those who think children should get vouchers to attend parochial schools. Here’s an idea, if you want your child to go to a parochial school, pay for it yourself. Maybe the reason the kids from parochial schools are “better behaved,” is because they are raised by responsible adults. Not free-loading “entitled” parents. I sent my two kids to Catholic schools and still paid for your kids’ schooling.

Front page

Well the front page on March 28 said it all. Give them all paths to citizenship and see where that gets us.

Kissin’ cousins

North Carolina: Where you can marry your cousin, just not your gay cousin.

Good die young

When the good die young, we are shocked. When the exceptional die young, we are dumbfounded. Our heart-felt prayers and Christian sympathies to the Sauter family and friends.

Security reasons

Three years ago, I sold my weapon. I’m not a hero and I don’t want to be. I’m a veteran of the Vietnam era. I never understood why some people think they can make a difference by having a weapon for security reasons. A weapon does more harm than good; it will ruin your life. Life is not a movie. If you need help, call 9-1-1 .

The Chicago way

President Obama chooses to cut border security so more illegal aliens could cross the border. This nonsense obviously is for political reasons, to secure more voters for his party. When will Obama’s Chicago-style politicking ever stop?


Since illegal immigrants are now undocumented immigrants, perhaps drug dealers are undocumented pharmacists and mixers of illegal drugs are undocumented compounding pharmacies. We must be politically correct and not offend anyone.

Tax rolls

There are many homes that the forest preserve district has bought and taken off the tax rolls. Now they have moved families in with children and send the children to school. How does that work? Who is paying the taxes for these children to go to school?

Your safety

This is about the “Tin foil” comment in TOTC. They’re built like that for your own safety so you don’t bounce around like a golf ball inside or go through the windshield.

Cocaine network

On March 28 when I saw the front page of The News-Sun I was absolutely sick after reading the entire article regarding the “grand bust” of 18 men who were involved in a cocaine network. To think that these people are allowed to come to America illegally and sell drugs to our children is horrible. And President Obama thinks they should have more rights? I’ll tell you what rights they should have: Send them right back to their country where they came from. America stands for better than this.


All these people that are constantly whining about the president don’t have a clue about what really goes on within the government. Grassroots America, people that are on the ground level, shouldn’t think for one minute that the folks on Capitol Hill are letting you know exactly what’s really going on. In fact, they can’t. If people want to complain about something, complain about all the lives lost in the Iraq War that Bush started. Not one weapon of mass destruction was found, not one, and that was Bush’s excuse for starting the Iraq War. Someone should be held accountable for that.

‘Grande bust’

In regard to the “Grande bust.” It’s time to pack up all the garbage and send it back where it belongs. They come over here and they’re ruining our town.
