Country is better with Obama as our president

Posted: Wednesday, October 3, 2012 4:04 pm

I wish I could get through to everyone, but that’s just not possible. We are living in a very “changing” environment, and we have to adjust ourselves to what is to come and maybe ask ourselves what are we going to do to make a difference.

A huge vote is coming up for president. What you do with your vote is up to you, but know one thing – life is better under Obama, and those of you who wish to say otherwise are just mistaken.

    Joe, I'm not going to continue to argue personal things, here, but I need to make one fact perfectly clear----It is you and marty whom have been jealous, and I'll never understand that. It is true that I have lived my life the way I want to, and have done so since I was about 10 years old. when I had to learn how to do laundry, or wouldn't have clean clothes for school. And actually, I WAS by grandads side for alot of years....I saw how strong he was, and i take alot from him. I was there when grandmother died, and I watched that break his heart, and his spirit. I don't think that you, or marty will ever understand what family means.

    you get on here and talk about Grandad like you were by his side, and how great of a man he was, then you turn around and say there was no family name and we were on our own....how pathetic. The only reason they took you in was because of Dad. You'll never know real family -- i have had the pleasure of experiencing that through people in other states with my name, other countries, and many many friends that i still hold dear that keep in touch with no other motives other than to know how i am, THOSE people are family. Not the guy that says, hey love to see you, by the way, bring a 12 pack and can i have your guitar?....LOL. you're a joke. and now you'll be old and a joke and helpless. you want to talk about me being in diapers.....you'll be back to those soon enough, and no one will ever be there for you..

    the fact that you believe there was no family name says you separated yourself from the beginning....and i was there, and whether you like it or not, my memory works great, from the time people yelled at you that you were going to Alabama because no one else could get you to do ANYTHING....and yes, you do see black and white, mostly white, or whatever color it is that is in YOUR favor...always in your favor, that's how you live. you've never helped a soul in this world unless there was something in it for you. I do hold a lot of things from the past, good and bad, you might be right about that. but you being the man you are now? first of all, you're not a man. You had your chance to be, but you seem to think the world at this point owes YOU. I remember you telling me when i was that young, that dad and mom both "owed you"..... In fact, you owe the world for waking up today. Always be careful how you speak, too, for tomorrow might just be a dream... You're nothing but a p-on to most all, or in this case, everyone. you live your life the way you want, I have no problem with that. Just do us all a favor and stop going to places you no longer belong, and talking about things you not only don't know, about, but have no business even acting like your involved with.

    keep in mind, everyone else reading, that this image of a "man", just said, "i have done some bad things in that past". Unfortunately, that past has carried over into the present, and most likely the future. I hope your bad things from your past and present haunt you far into the future, Tom, and by the way, you haven't been my brother since that email you sent to me and marty about YOUR house, which my step-dad owns, pays all the bills, and tries to have a say when you're not cramming mist down his throat so you can get your way. Enjoy, though, this is your time. Soon you won't have that.

    Making the family name a discrace......Joe, I hate to break it to you, but there was, and is, no "family name" we were onour own from childhood, and it's time you realized that.

     
  • tomcryar posted at 9:51 pm on Fri, Nov 2, 2012.

    That's the difference, Joe. I turn to the future, while learning from the past.....I don't see black and white.

    tomcryar Posts: 696

    Thanks, Joe, now, for once, I finally appreciate yours, and Marty's sentiments. I'm not sure you'll understand, but I was working when I was 11 years old....you werte still in diapers. All the things I've done and all the work I've done, have brought me to this place, and it's a place of understanding, and compassion, and peace, because while I have done some bad things in that past, it does not make me the man that I am now. And, also, I think you're going to have to learn that, but I don't hold much hope. You and Marty are so caught up in the past that you refuse to see the future.

    Sorry, I will correct myself about one part of my response.....you said i'm bitter about your lifestyle. In my haste and bad mood, I initially read that wrong... yep, I'm bitter about all the things I just explained because good people get taken for whatever you can take them for every chance you get. I'm bitter about your poor attempts at sounding like you have a "lifestyle". I'm bitter about you making the family name a disgrace. We've all made mistakes, but the rest of us learn from ours on how to better ourselves and not make them again. You? you made a career out of it continuing mistakes because you found advantages in it that kept you comfy in a chair in front of a tv instead of being out in the real world like most people. the biggest difference between you and me, is that years from now when you're still claiming to work and be a real person, but who never worked long enough to plan a retirement other than waiting on other family members to kick off and collect their stuff, I will be able to sit back and say, I've done some great things in my life, I've been to many places, i have some truly great friends, and I worked my way through it without using other people to get where i wanted to be. When I'm 60 i'll be looking to retire and enjoy life. When you're 60, if you make it that far, you'll still be looking for another Obama to take care of you and thinking of new stories to make everyone else look bad and make yourself look good. that's all it's ever been, you pointing fingers at everyone else to take the attention away from you...

    just like you?? We're NOTHING alike. I don't live off of other people and steal their money when they aren't home. I don't lie to people to get what i want and keep living off of them and unemployment and eat all their food and drink all their beer then ask for more...don't you EVER say we're the same. Your lifestyle? LOL. Yea, i'm really jealous of someone that sits at home every day, has no life except for porn and politics, plotting ways to continue living mostly bill free, not worrying about having a job because you don't have any responsibilities or any friends.

    you've never been right about most anything you say, either. You have no clue. You yourself said in a section on here months ago how you can't say the economy is better by unemployment rates falling because all it is showing is people lost unemployment and stopped looking for jobs. Now all of a sudden it's much better and everything is golden. Get a life, no wonder no one up here likes you, they never did, by the way, the whole time you lived with me and I supported your but(spelled that way on purpose), even keith said you were loser. Crawl in a hole and do everyone a favor-- disappear.

    Oldschool, yep that's the one. Truthurts -- yep, and thank you for not fueling his ignorance any longer, he's usually drunk anyway when he gets on here and spouts his wannabe comments.

    mitt romney is person who is wish-washy, at best.....To me, he is an outright liar. He has subversed his postions so many times, that we are led to believe that he has no real position, and as such, is relying ONLY on what the money-people tell him to say, or do. Do we, as citizens really want another war-monger, who cares little about Americans who actually make this country, or do we want a true caring individual, who will fight for everything that The United States stands for?

    I'd like to add one more thing.....if people are so hel-bent on turning backwards, then there lies absolutely no hope for the future, If people want to keep the same-old, same-old, then you will get exactly what you asked for, and nothing will change. After all the cr ap that we've been through as taxpayers and human beings, do we not deserve something to bring us out of the abyss? Obama and Hillary, and a few others, really ARE trying to turn this country around, and if you really don't believe that, I'm afraid for you, because you may be one those that are lost.

    boaz resident, just by chance while i was in albertville tuesday, i talked to an old classmate of tom's. the classmate said they graduated in 1983. the classmate of tom's did'nt have one good thing to say about him, which included that tom try's to be something he is not. and i can't type the word's that described him because the sand mountain reporter does not allow profanity.

    OldSchool, you're wasting your time. He won't listen to any reason or any reality. He has no real clue about reality except taking what he watches on tv and reads on websites as gospel. He has a job--right now. A few months from now he'll be back on unemployment because mysteriously, the employer was out to get him the whole time, just as with every job he's ever had, amazing how many people are against one person..... He'll continue to get on here once he's good and drunk, and spout his ignorance to everyone, as if we are all completely uneducated, and he is the only intelligent one around. This letter and all it's comments should have never gotten this far, but it is proof that he knows how to get everyone worked up over nonsense.

    i made a misprint, i meant to say some items at the grocery have went up fifty cents per item. all this is due to the rising cost of gas. obama has stopped efforts to drill for oil and would not allow oil to come in from canada.. high gas prices cause everything else to increase in prices. tom does not think about the little man. the people that make less than $10.65 a hour and the minimum wage earner. money will only go so far. most people have'nt had a pay raise in 4 years and this year was the first year that people on social security got a cost of living increase in 2 years because tom's precious president woul'nt give it to them. can you imagine that, after spending all that money on bailing out the millionaires in the auto industry and the banking industry and wall street, obama would'nt give the retired,old,disabled and sick people a raise. looks like he could have printed enough money for them also. tom did you include that in your don't have a clue phrase that you like to use so often?

    tom forgot to mention a few facts, such as higher gas, food and medicine prices. the price on some of my medicine has gone up lately. i went to the grocery store this week and some of the same things i bought 2 weeks ago had gone up to fifty cent per item. and that has happened also under obama. and that is'nt the only things to rise in prices.

    oldschool definitely does not THINK about the old school....If he did, he would have to consider what Obama has done to help this country, and would also have to realize that he is wrong. Unemployment down, manufacturing up, banks, and those whom call thereselves money-men under control, no more hiding money, no more of the rich getting richer on the backs of the hourly workers......Under Obama, their will be accountability, and the republicans are scared to death of that, because it means no more millions for pacs and special interests.

    Please listen, everyone....this election is very, very important. This election represents the path toward recovery, or the path to the same things that put us in this situation. It is up to ALL of us to care enough to vote. Our voting priviledge is a constitutional right, but what's more, it's an obligation that all of us have to participate in the future of the United States. If you don't vote, don't care, don't think it matters, then you will get what you deserve. For those who DO care, please weigh everything based upon what you think, and NOT what the media tells you to think. This election could either continue the US on a path of recovery, or sink us further.

    I think all these people who are coming out against Obama, really have no clue. Obama DID NOT take 700 million from medicare, or social security....that 700 million that's in contention, is the estimated cost of SAVINGS that medicare will see through attrition of the insurance fraud that is rampant under republican control, and in which they are fighting so hard to maintain. The republicans are all about money----and how much they can get. It REALLY IS as simple as that.

    If Obama has been so bad, why is the automobile industry, seeing profits, after paying back the loans....? Why is it so bad, that people's checks are a little more, because Obama is getting rid of insurance abuse.....? Why is it so bad that in the last 10 years, the whole world has hated us, but after only, 3 real years, the world is understanding that we are not the monster...? Do we REALLY want to go back to when we have to wonder where the next war will be?........Do we REALLY want the same policies that almost put the US under?

    I can't speak for others, but for me conditions have been better under Obama than under Bush. During the last 6 years of President's Bush's terms my pay was frozen (no raises, no cost of living adjustment), matching in our 401k was removed, work load decreased and hundreds of my co-workers lost their jobs. I was also laid off toward the end of President Bush's last year in office. Since President Obama was elected, I was brought back to work, I've had pay raises the last three years, this year our 401k matching was reinstated.

    Hey Tom, in case you did'nt notice , you kind of got off topic from your own letter did'nt you ? You went from bragging on obama to cutting me down. You better start helping ole obama out again, because he is going to need all the support he can get to pull his "SCAM" off the second time. When romney wins the election, and he will, you are not going to be a sore loser are you ?

    your just jealous because john boehner worked hard through the years and made it to the house of representatives and was against "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act " And obama said in one of is speeches that there would be penalities for people that did not have health insurrance . So tom your are saying the president of the United States lied And they will not be any penalties. fines, or taxes for those without health care ins.?

    Oldschool., I'm not sure where you get your information, and I don't really care at this point. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, in which it is called, does NOT provide for "fines" against those who are too poor to afford health care. That's one of those talking points that you hear from rush dimwit, and fox news. As for your other thing, republicans are the ones who have tried to block everything the democrats have put forth-----People like john bohner have no place in our democracy.

    Also anyone who thinks that the Presidents 400k yearly salary is ALL that he gets, is sorely mistaken. Just like any celebrity these days, there are endorsements, backing and "donations" from big corporations, etc.. It's all about the money with them now, and their goal is living comfortably after their term is up. That's all, nothing else. Oh, and don't forget that after all that, even former presidents still get a yearly salary until they pass away.

    and tom cyar, obama could care less about the hungry and homeless here in the united states. in an earlier post i had mentioned seeing the little girl sitting in front ot a tent under the interstate in atlanta not long ago, and all you had to offer was you usual wise cracks and smart remarks. i know what i seen, and i did'nt think it was funny at all. i really do hope all demorats are not like you. obama lives in the whitehouse, gets $400,000 a year, eats anything he wants, his wife and kids to, he don't care. he cares about wall street and auto workers making big money

    tom cryar, while you are in st. petersburg you ought to hop on a boat and ease over to cuba and check out castro's country. four more years of obama and his bunch you could be living under similar conditions. and its obama and biden that has no clue how the average american lives. oine example is do you think a minimun wage earner is going to be able to pay a three or four thousand dollar fine if they don't have health insurance? and another thing how much money do you think the minumun wage earner has left each week right now,after they pay bills, buy food, day care for their kids, etc. tom common sense should tell you they woulld'nt have to much money left at the price of everything going up due to high gas price's. and obama has stopped every attempt to change that. you know its true, but you keep on with your bull about how someone don't have a clue, well its you and people like you that have been brainwashed by obama and his bunch into believing that you are better off that don't have a clue. bye tom, and next time tom try to come up with some new material, all you got is the same ol democratic marlarky. P.S tom i got that marlarky word from joe.

    Romney and Ryan have no clue----none---no clue whatsoever about how the average American lives. They think ONLY about money, and making MORE! They could not care less about the real working people, who actually make this country what it is, and furthermore, their attempt at gaining the leadership is designed to bring us back into the dark ages of Bush, and his disaster.

    What I'm afraid of, really, is that the people actually buy into the rhetoric, the suppositions, and the outright lies that the republican party is putting out there....Obama and Hillary have saved this country from going under, Obama, with his strong leadership, and Hillary, with her expertise of dealing with the rest of the world. Under Bush, he, and his team, alienated most of the world, and made us seem like the terrible one's....Under this administration, the whole worls knows that we, as the United States, are willing to deal with them, and not just close off ties, That, my friends, is the true mark of leadership.

    In 2008 I was making close to $17.00 an hour. I had a nice place, money in the bank, no trouble paying bills, etc.. 4 years later I had to struggle to make ends meet, lost just about everything including my sanity for a short period of time, only through a few true friends that have helped me because I have and will always be there for them, I am now working my tail off as well, for $9.50 an hour. If I hadn't had them, there's no telling where I would be right now. Still, I get up every day, go to work every day, for pennies compared to 4 years ago, so I can help support all the people that have been enabled to sit at home, get on the internet via their new smart phones and complain about how the picture on their new flat screen tv isn't as good as the ad said it was. I plan on voting, i'm also out there every day in the community doing what i can, in the process of writing some well-versed letters to a lot of people, and hopefully one day I won't have to struggle as much and I and many many other people do today. Unlike some people that get one job for just a few months, just long enough to qualify for unemployment again, while living off of someone else, complaining that they are struggling and barely making it.

    Explain this tom cryar. in your letter to the editor here you made the statement that you was better off with obama as president and earlier in the comments i said that i was'nt better off than i was four years ago and you said that is was a matter of me to try and do more for myself to better my situation. well, in 2008 i was making $14.00 a hour and in 2012 i am still making $14.00 a hour and you just complained that your were only making $10.65 a hour, how are you better off than you was four years ago and how are you better off with obama as president I am not making 1 penny more since obama was elected and look at how much things has went up in the past four years since obam was elected, some things has doubled in price, so you think you are better off. i just don't see it, sorry tom cryar but i think yoiu might be wrong on this being better off deal.

    I watched the debate tom cryar. instead of slammed, i think the word you were looking for was " stuttering ." when romney would get in obama's face and ask him a direct question,obama had a little trouble with his words when trying to think of a lie. or i mean an answer. he never did answer why he rejected the canadian pipeline which romney called him on and obama did'nt have a answer for when gas prices would come down. they was a lot of things obama did'nt give a clear answer on. also he had a little problem with people not having jobs issue. i thought you said you watched the debate. obama being rude by speaking when he was'nt suppose to speak ,was your idea of taking charge tom? Obama mentioned being in the rose garden, i guess he smelled the rose's and knowed he was finished as president.

Well, first, I am going to vote, and without people voting, they have no say, not even afterwards.....if you don't vote, as far as I"m concerned, you have no opinion. You're other question.....I work my as s off for $10.65 an hour, which wouldn't even bring me to the level of "middle class", but I keep going with that because I have to eat.

It's really bad when a person like that is so caught up in the rhetoric, and mis-information, that they see only what is presented to them.....there's a bigger picture----bigger than all of us, and yes, bigger than politics. It's about what's right for the direction of this country as a whole, and not for the few. It's about getting rid of deadwood in our so-called government, and getting people IN who actually CARE about the people whom elect them.....Service in the senate, or congress was never originally meant to be a "career", and so many have lost sight of that fact. It was meant to be a volunteer position because someone cared enough to try and make a difference.

    Actually I have much more than a clue about the food stamps and unemployment. A couple years ago I had to file unemployment, got it, then had it taken away when I needed it the most, worst part about that? I tried to file for food stamps also, for a little more help, and was denied. Why? I made too much money on unemployment! All the while, having people around me(yes, literally, I've seen it, and still see it every day, so don't even bother arguing), lie about employment because they work under the table or sell drugs, so they collect unemployment, and found a way to lie to the food stamp office, so now they get all of it! That's just one example. I literally see, every freakin' day, people at wally world, piggly wiggly, you name it, come in, with a food stamp card so worn out that they actually need another one, but won't pay the fee to get one, so they just have the number memorized because they've had it for 10 years or better! Another example, same places, I see a husband and wife, with 6 or 7 kids(no joke), 2 carts full of steaks, other assorted quality meats, all brand name foods, snacks, sodas, etc.. I will watch them pull out their EBT card to pay for it all. I've waited in the parking lot several different times when i've seen people like that, to see what they get in. Usually an Escalade, or fully customized Pick up with high end paint job and about 5k worth of rims and tires. I know of people around here that COULD work, but why bother when with the current administration, they are allotted close to $1000 a month in food stamps!!!!! No questions asked, either. And none of these are exaggerations, either. Oh, here's one, I even have a family member, who, most of the years i've known them, have done nothing but gone out of their way to live off of everyone else. That person did, in fact, tell me at one point exactly how long to keep a job, and how to get fired so they could continue collecting unemployment and sit at home in comfort. That person was usually drunk, however, when they told me, so i'm sure denial will play all the way to death on that one. They claim to be hard working and a good citizen, blah blah blah, but sit at home eating someone else's food when the food stamps run out for the month, drinking someone else's beer, watching tv, and praising the current administration because he made "paradise" possible to continue for that loser. And if there's an argument to be had there, which there isn't, anyone that does argue can kiss my vertical smile. I've seen it all first hand, dealt with it personally, and know exactly what some people's goals are in this day and age. Obama or any president that keeps enabling these idiots, is just making the world dumber by the day, which, at this point, d a m n near isn't possible from the view at my window.

I'm taking my "Beware of Dog" sign down and putting an Obama sign in my yard...that will scare away any crook in the neighborhood, because nobody can beat Obama the Crook.

    what's ridiculous is how over all the years, people have let themselves become conditioned to the fact that when there are only a couple of people in the running, they believe they HAVE to pick one of them. It's been said to me that we have to choose the lesser of the two evils. BULL! lesser of two evils, is still evil!!!! I say more people should get off their comfy chairs while waiting on their unemployment and food stamps to come in, and do something! People talk alot, they will tell you all day long that they will gladly stand up and fight for a better government, country, etc., until you actually WANT them to back up their words. Then all of a sudden they play hide and seek. When they finally come out of hiding, all they want to do is point fingers and bellyache about what the last guy did. If the current president or any official did one thing to help the person complaining(in this case, allow unemployment to continue way past its due date, so lazy people can keep sitting in that comfy chair on someone else's dime), then of course that's the man, and everyone should praise him, right? WRONG. Government is a joke now. The bottom line with them is, you are a number, they could really care less(and most go out of their way to) about you, and all they do is pad their pockets in the allotted time they have in office, so they can have a comfy chair, too, when it's all over. New laws, regulations, and pills are out lightning fast and only there to make THEM money, and to keep you from actually getting up and raising your voice. Just remember, it's We The People, and the longer you continue to let either evil put you in a corner like a rotten step-child, the worse it will get for all of us.

    Further posts by you should boosts everyone IQ by at least 50 point. I love the intellectual high you have given me Tom. Please post more rhetoric. Your " feel good " post in a way reminded me of the chicken soup for the soul books which should leave some with a warm and fuzzy feeling inside. I am awestruck at the overwhelming emotions i get when i know my tax dollars are bailing out private enterprises and banks. Actually Barry's " feel good " policies leaves a few "knowing" American people psised off. It's sad that most people have been dumbed down and the politicians can put on a huge smile with smooth talk and win over the populous while saying "trust us". The dumbed down can't grasp the concept of how huge the deficit really is. These people just go with the flow and trust the politicians with huge sums of tax dollars all the while chunking even larger sums at outrageous programs. The g'vmt budget is no different than one trying to budget his or her own household but has countless bills to be paid instead of a few. Thus being the g'vmt, and out of common sense, are too irresponsible to take care of them. Its kind of like a person that is out of pocket $95 on bills and brings in 100$ and is bound and determined to buy that $20 pizza and does. Paying your bills before giving to charity (bailouts) is down right crazy talk. So is balancing a budget or even trying to achieve one. Debt, its the American way it seems. Lets raise the debt ceiling more while bailing out more corporations. Then lets "feel good" while yelling down the hallway to the Dept of Treasury "print more fiat for we just bailed out another car company and are investing in a couple more solar power corporations..........again"! Isn't it strange how the g'vmt keeps throwing money in at bottomless pits? All the while those that are dumbed down (the public) are expecting a different outcome ( can you say " hope and change" ). I can assure you they know what the outcome will be before they attempt it and it is done to appease the people. Do the math. Crunch the numbers. Calculate 'em. Run it through a super computer. It is going to happen. This country will go broke but maybe a load of conservatism will prolong it. BTW How was that pb&j sandwich and 2 rounds of golf? Please post some pics soon.

It's really a wonder that all these people aren't just walking straight into walls, without someone telling them how to think.

    This persons last name is fitting and he fits the mold of a perfect bleeding heart liberal who knows absolutly nothing about what he is talking about and only wants to cry about people not understanding NOBAMA. The only thing I have to say about this is that gasoline was $1.85 per gallon and the deficit was between 6 -8 trillion when Bush left office. It does not take a genius to figure out that Gasoline is now in the $3.50/ gallon range nad the deficit is at 16 trillion and growing every minute. All of this in only 3&1/2 years of having this fool in Office. How dare he try to tell me me I am better off with the fool in office.

    The bottom-line is this......President Obama tokk a horrible situation, and by hiring the right people, and by doing things right by the American people, this economy actually IS turning around and people are going back to work.....people think the president can automatically make changes, and everything will be OK! the truth is, the president is only as good as the people in the senate, and the congress....and the republicans have fought EVERY instance to try to better this country, which leads me, and many, many others, to believe that they simply don't care about this country.

You say, "Country is better with Obama as our President" What has he accomplished to have made it better, how are you better off with dumbobama as president, how is life better under dumbobama ?

    Apparently, cbs doesn't (or hasn't) had a child in the public school system. Maybe someone "he knows" can enlighten him about teachers also. Some teachers are good, some are great, and some are exceptional. Some are also worthless. My daughter had a teacher in 7th grade that when asked to explain something would state "I will have to ask "insert another teacher name" during break and let you know." We have had teachers that have embarassed children for asking questions. So by no means are all teachers great and parents are the reason for our children having problems in school. Just like teachers, though, some parents are also inadequate. Just another way for cbs lumping all people into one catergory, as he is so good at that!

    Lockweed, no matter how you might twist the facts or make up your own as before; The States that are considered moochers of the system are largely Republican and the states that are not considered moochers are largely Democratic. So, go ahead and vote Republican and complain about the welfare system etc... Republicans are paid off by the corporations that took jobs and homes away and your dumb@&% still votes for them. Now that’s the facts!

You have been trying, using subversive tactics, to make the Democrats seem like the "enemy", and are pulling out all the last-ditch-efforts to try to scare people, and to try to make them think Obama is the bad one......The reason I haven't really engaged you in argument, is that no matter what I say, or people like me say, you will always try to turn it around with your ignorant rhetoric, I wonder if you, and all the people like you, have EVER considered what is best for the America public?

    Mike, "Tom, you call me the antithesis of true Americans? Go ahead Darwin please tell me how. Have you ever spent one day in service to your country? Have you ever served as a Police Officer, Fireman, or EMT? Have you ever saved a person's life? Have you ever donated to a charity or worked with disadvantaged children on a Native American Indian Reservation? Have you ever taught a class?"

    I can't speak for Tom, I have however intubated people, put them on a ventilator, and maintained their pulmonary systems while they recovered. So I can say with absolute certainty you need to keep your mouth shut attempting to talk about serving the public.

    Also, yes Mike I do blame parents for their kids failing in schools. For the exact same reason students fail in college. Teachers do their jobs adequately, a student has a book, and they have a teacher that stands in front of them explaining and reviewing the content in the book. It is the students and their parents job to make sure they study that material then they go home.

    Because lets face it, how good of a chance does an attorney have of winning the case if their client is so ignorant that they can't even spell a 4 letter word.

    The only thing you've proven is the fact that you're a walking example of why the south has been and will continue to be filled with mostly uneducated ignorant people who aren't capable of much more than being used for cheap labor.

    Why??? Because they have ZERO motivation and desire to try and better themselves. Yet, are just arrogant enough to think they're intelligent enough to comprehend politics and diplomacy.

    Yea, kinda makes it difficult to claim you have higher learning.

    Leon, "where you live (lier)"

    Can you honestly not spell a 4 letter word, especially when you're calling the person the word??

    Leon, "That is just more BS from liberal Democrats who resort to name calling when they have NOTHING to prove their point or an answer to the issue. They learned that lesson from their party leader Dumbobama !
    Case in point, they are now attacking organized religion to get their vote, what cards ! That will lose him the "black vote" too ! Bye, bye Bumdobama !"

    Wow, first you make a statement accusing us of name calling yet can't even call Obama by his given name and it's not just you but all of the right wingers on here. Also, apparently you're so stupid you can't even spell the same variation you use of Obama's name the same two times in the same comment.

    Just for the record, how exactly do you honestly expect anyone with any level of intelligence to take you seriously???????

    The scariest part about people like you Leon is that you are actually capable of reproducing. People wonder why the education level of kids in this country goes down, because they have ignorant parents who pass it onto their children.

    Thank you Tom for finally saying/admitting where you live (lier), only took you three days . And, I must thank you again for saying that at least I know who my parents are, you on the other hand don't !

    For the Obama "boys", the last presidential debate was to be about the economy. Mitt Romney did touch a little on it. But, your President did not mention one thing about it. What is his plan for reducing goverment, balancing the budget, or a path that will put Americans back to work ! Why would anyone support or vote for someone without any idea of what to do and has shown just that !!

But hey, at least you have those FREE HANDOUTS! WIC, Food Stamps (oh SNAP), Free medical, and housing. Hug a Republican when you see them and thank them that they are smart business people (unlike Obozo) and creates jobs for the economy.

    I can see black folks wanting Obama in office, but when I see white folks believing in this DUD, it makes me sick. Those that vote for him are TRAITORS! The worst President ever! If you really want to scare away crooks from your yard, take down your "Beware of Dog" sign and put an Obama sign in your yard. And Absent-T Ballots are only for Illegal Mexicans that haven't jumped the border yet..Obama staff is looking for workers in Alabama...to go into the grave yards and collect names off the tomb stones and write in their votes. In the debate, he kept on saying we need better education, Really? We have the best colleges and education systems in the world...We need JOBS with the education. Wake up America! That's funny how the Dumbocrats use a Jack*** Mule for their symbol...That speaks volumes. Only ones that want Obozo in office are the ones that want FREE HANDOUTS! But you can thank a Republican for those because we WORK and pay taxes to support you.

    Mike, "Also the last two with Nobama and Romney, because a lot of the second and all of the third will be on foreign policy."

    You can always spot a right winger because they're incapable of spelling Obama's name correctly. Must be sad to be so illiterate that you can't spell a 5 letter name correctly. Especially when that individual is the president.

    John, "Leon. I like the lower case letters for cbs. A good way to show him how you feel about him."

    WOW, John did you think of that all by yourself??? Could it be because my user name is already in lower case?? Retard!

    Leon, "So, it stands to reason that one would question his residence. "

    Ok, apparently you weren't intelligent enough to catch onto the fact that I was more or less pointing out that his residence DOESN'T MATTER!!

    WHO CARES????????

    Leon, "Are you an implant from the SMR for Obama ?"

    The fact that the thought would even enter your mind that someone on here is planted here by a small time newspaper in po dunk Alabama I think is evidence enough to the fact that you are either a retard or one very mentally unstable paranoid right winger.

    Just for the record, you idiots wonder why most of the country think people from Alabama are ignorant morons just take a look at your above quotes.

    But at the same time it doesn't surprise me because you're backing a candidate who wears "magic underwear" to church and thinks when he dies he will be given his own planet to rule over. (mormon teaching)

    Buffoon the only raping going on that i see is from the low life sorry scum leeches that receives a check(s) every month, eating on EBT's and somehow afford better vehicles than a working man as myself has.. If these people that are being propped up on my wallet can't find a job then i think for compensation, they should have to report to a Dr. After a physical exam and upon passing ( probably 50% ) they get to then visit city hall. There they get to work 3 days a week picking up trash, limbs, leaves or even washing city vehicles. Giving them Mondays and Fridays off to look for a job, I am sure that these leeches could find part time or even full time jobs if given an incentive. The incentive would be 6 months and the freebies vanish and after 1 year so does g'vmt assisted housing. Something has to break the cycle of riding my ever thinning wallet. Some people needs are legit and i am all for helping a person down on their luck for a reasonable period of time but it seems some people are born down on their luck and never had a lucky day in their entire life. Those who drop out of schools just because they wanted to made that choice and i should'nt be footing their GED schooling either. And before you say kicking them out on the street is cruel or mean, let me remind you that large banks never had a problem with it and do just that on a daily basis.

    Well John, I type the names as they appear on print. I am not trying to make anything of them, expect what they themself comment ! But, you have good insight, Sir !

    Still, no answer from the two Obama "boys" ? No need to research cbsboaz - he told us all about him and more then what we want to know !!

    Cbs' comment about Big Bird shows he wasted his time watching the debate last night because he did not understand the message, what a D...A.. !!

    Leon. I like the lower case letters for cbs.
    A good way to show him how you feel about him.

    I just have three things , I like to say about some comments here.

    1. Mr Cryar, you have on your poster icon profile "about: Ask me --- I might tell you". You did not answered whether you live in Flordia or Boaz. Are you an implant from the SMR for Obama ? You won't answer none of these neither, makes your letter worthless !!
    2. Mr cbs, to debate or question some one's comments, one needs to know something about them. Mr Cyrar has stated on this comment page that he lives in Boaz, seems very up to date on this city. So, it stands to reason that one would question his residence. You, on the other hand - even with your foot in your mouth you always manage to say the most with NOTHING of substance.
    3. Only fools vote for the same fool thinking something different will come from him !! A community organizer does not make a President.

    A real governor is here - www.garyjohnson2012.com Two term Governor Gary Johnson has cut taxes 14 times, cut spending and left office with millions of dollars in surplus for his state. The media, the GOP establishment, and the Democratic machine will not tell you about your third choice for president, you need to inform yourself ! Gary Johnson 2012 !!

    Oh and just for the record for some of you right wingers, when your candidate comes out and says more or less that Big Bird and Elmo are public enemy number 1 in his eyes, then your candidate kinda just screwed himself.

    Because lets face it, there's probably not anyone in this country who at some point didn't watch Sesame Street at some point who is at least under the age of 50.

    So congratulations your candidate just succeeded in making most of the parents in this country hate him.

    Seriously, this is the best ya'll could offer the country?? A candidate who looks like Pe Pe Le Pew and hates Big Bird???

    Leon, "OldSchool and Big Bomber, you are talking to a nobody ! There is no Tom Cryar in St Peterburg, FL. But, there is a Thomas Cryar in Boaz. "

    WOW, thank you for finally acknowledging that you don't really have a life because you actually feel the need to research people from this comment section online.

    I mean seriously, this is a comment section on a newspaper website.

    Can you honestly say that your life has gone so down hill that you feel the need to try and investigate people who make comments on here????

    Oops, I'm sorry judging from the above quote of yours I'd say it actually has.

    truthurts said: "Since Barry has taken office, i have seen business after business layoff countless workers. I haven't just read about layoffs, i have seen them first hand." I wonder if you have heard, or seen, about the "countless" small businesses hiring, and NOT laying off workers, under Obama's plan? I actually wonder if you can see ANYTHING above what fox news says.

    oldschool, I realize the rhetoric that you read, or see on tv influences what you say, but maybe it's just a matter of doing more for yourself to try to better your own situation. We can't blame everything in our life on the President.

    Too bad this particular letter to the editor does not have a like or dislike button. I am sitting here gazing at a perfect spot for the dislike button. Like a meth head looking for the next "fix", i have my pointer over this perfect spot and with a smile, clicking like no tomorrow. Yesterday i felt like a genius .......today i felt like a genius......i can't wait until tomorrow!

    Tom you are delusional or you have been watching too much msnbc! Where you been past four years? Since Barry has taken office, i have seen business after business layoff countless workers. I haven't just read about layoffs, i have seen them first hand. Being a travelling mechanic that works on industrial equipment, I go statewide to manufacturing facilities and also to mom and pop operations. Almost everyweek i see countless layoffs, short time and closures. I live in the real world and see how the economy really is. Just a couple years ago i took a voluntary cut in pay so a layoff would not happen to my coworkers or myself. Well that wasn't enough and for the first time in the history of the company i work for, we had a layoff. Back before the free cell phones, massive g'vmt housing explosion, food stamps and other entitlments, a normal sane person could " feel" the pain of a neighbor that was having hades to make ends meet. Those that receive a check in the form of entitlement has an idea of how to budget from month to month. Most the people i know are proud hard working people that would go hungry before asking for a handout. I am one of those people and not once in my life havee i asked such from taxpayers. The only companies i see that are going wide open are the military contractors. Tom do a little more investigating before you post rhetoric as this!

    OldSchool and Big Bomber, you are talking to a nobody ! There is no Tom Cryar in St Peterburg, FL. But, there is a Thomas Cryar in Boaz. So, he is a phony if he has to hide behind falsehoods, just like Obama !!

    Old School you are an idiot.

    "gas has doubled in price since he took over,"

    Really?? Has gas jumped to 8 dollars a gallon?? No!

    When I was in college 5 years ago I remember clearly gas went above 4 dollars a gallon under Bush.

    Under Obama I've actually seen at one point gas go below $3 a gallon a few times.

    it might be better for you tom in st. petersburg fl but i don't think anybody here in boaz is better off, i know i'm not. gas has doubled in price since he took over, among other things thats gone downhill since he took office. people still loosing jobs and their homes still being foreclosed.

    @ TOM, go ahead and cry to Ben at the Sand Mt. Repeater, maybe he will take my post off here since he's an Obama man. I can't believe they even posted your letter to the editor.

    @TOM: Only two Ambassadors were killed...one under Jimmy "Peanut" Carter, and the other under Barry the Obama. Unemployment rate over 8% and still climbing for the past 4 years, Foreclosures and Gas prices higher than ever been. He's the WORST President ever! Making Carter even look good. He has done NOTHING but lied! Only "Change" Obama has brought to this country is "POCKET CHANGE." Try paying bills on that. The reason that people want him in office is for the FREE HANDOUTS! Go ahead Tom, keep drinking his Koolaid and you'll see worse for the next 4 years. Put an AMERICAN back in Office...This country needs some R & R....Romney & Ryan. And keep your thoughts down in Florida where they have to have "Recounts" because they don't know how to VOTE.
