EDITOR:This is primarily for our local conservatives, who have to be the most misinformed peoples I've ever pseudo cyber-stalked.
I can certainly understand keeping government out of our homes, but the Republican Party is no longer conservative and hasn't been for quite some time.
All this Obama bashing is completely unwarranted.
I'd argue some points, but 90 percent of the things our local "conservatives" complain about is laughably false and very little actual research is needed to verify this truth.
I'm not going to bother arguing with sheep. I have things to do.
I grew up with them too, but open your eyes and turn off Fox News.
Back in the day, local channels 1-13 were ours, and this newspaper is still ours I hope (and probably in dire need of our support), but cable companies are private and owned by foreigners.
Fact: Fox News is at least 6-7 percent owned by a particularly nasty Saudi oil baron.
Please look it up. Trust me, he's not our friend.
Fact: Foreign owner (via New Zealand?) of Fox News Rupert Murdoch is the absolute best example of a James Bond villain ever, and America is fully backing Israel because of his influence through Fox News.
This media mogul/villain/terrorist company is manipulating our nation and our brother and sister American "conservatives" casually sign over our children's lives on the word of these people.
Please, turn off Fox News and the fear, local conservatives.
Your complaints against ObamaCare are ridiculous. The primary one being retired people worried about losing benefits.
Guess what, with no viable budget or plan, we fellow citizens are paying for these unpaid and unaffordable hospital bills with our taxes.
Foreign insurance companies are taking our money while hiding contemptuous grins.
Our local hospitals and taxpayers will continue to pay a huge price for that lack of planning. That is all ObamaCare is. It is a budget plan for health care.
I can't believe any rational American would argue against such a thing.
Taxpayers are just eating the expense while these foreign pharmaceutical and insurance companies are totally soaking our veterans and elderly parents, which damages smaller, spread-out communities like the Upper Peninsula worst of all.
Open your eyes: You must, at least subconsciously, have noticed that most of the ads through Fox are for drug companies?
Trust your eyes: How many people do you know who have found jobs in the past few months?
I personally know many. Things are improving, despite your tampering.
Gas prices were just as high now as they were with Bush, and they will absolutely get higher.
Limited fuel source, duh.
Why do you think Obama was pushing the alternative energy agenda?
The pipeline proposed to go from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico: Have you checked the foot-note on that bill? At the same time, they proposed to eliminate the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The EPA is the environmental watch-dog assigned by 'we the people' to protect us from rich foreign corporations/interests from destroying our land and then just paying off the courts.
We would be back to suing them as individual people. Do you really think you could win a case against Citgo or Shell if they made a mess on your land?
These same people have been down playing global warming for years and now it's March and 80 degrees.
I can't think of better proof that they straight-up lied to you, because they certainly have the experts and the information to know better.
Please local conservatives, open your minds and do some research.
Voting Republican is no longer the same thing as voting conservative.
