Socialism isn’t coming; it’s here

Socialism isn’t coming; it’s here

While mortally grave but at the same time sidesplittingly hilarious, the “Marxist in Chief,” Barack Obama, daily attacks the free enterprise system for America’s ills.

For you uninformed out there, the left with the help of the feckless Republicans, destroyed capitalism and liberty decades ago and replaced it with an unconstitutional and destructive central government.

Well if it walks like socialism, and quacks like socialism, it’s socialism. God save us all from what’s coming.

Frank Santolla, North Lima

Parents get a break at the mall

I don’t live in Ohio; I live in Vir- ginia. The Cafaro Co. owns a retail mall near my home, Spotsylvania Town Centre.

Recently, Cafaro decided not to renew a contract with a service in our mall, Wiggle Worms. Wiggle Worms is a drop off entertainment center for children ages 12 months to 10 years old. Without Wiggle Worms, many local mommies and daddies would not be able to shop, grab dinner, or have a quiet date night with their significant other. They provide a much-needed service to the community.

After their closing was announced, hundreds of mommies and daddies raised concerns with Cafaro, who then decided to renew Wiggle Worms’ contract and give them an even better space in the mall.

The management at Cafaro heard our pleas, and for that we are truly grateful. Other companies probably would have ignored us.

First letter writer is a perfect example of what happens when you fall asleep in front of the TV with Faux News on.

""Wiggle Worms is a drop off entertainment center for children ages 12 months to 10 years old.""

All Jennifer needs to do is hire a babysitter.

Hey Frank - go cash your Social Security check...and don't forget your next doctor's appointment, which, of course, will be covered by Medicare. Apparently, the willing ignorance of the Tea Party is only overshadowed by its own shameless hypocrisy.

Socialism!!! "God save us all from what's coming." God, I have a much easier and far better request; save us all from loons like Frank Santolla. Hey Frankie, if Obama was a Marxist, like Stalin, you sure would have heard a knock on the door by now and, if you were lucky, you'd be sent to spend the rest of your life a mile down working in a uranium mine in Nevada. And for sure you wouldn't be able to write the conspiracy-theorist tripe that you and the rest of the extremist right-wing spout daily. No, you and your colleagues who use more Social Security and Medicare benefits than you ever paid into it are the real keepers of "socialism". The best thing for you Frankie-baby is to go into your bunker, do an inventory of your MRE's and stay out of that North Lima sun. Yo' po' haid can't take much more!

Sorry Frank, If Obama was a Socialist then we would have half the population on the public dole and the country headed toward bankruptcy. Oops! Never Mind.

You posters, on this message board, seem to be some of the 21 people who watch MSNBC or the 11 who watch CNN.
Your Youngstown philosophies are the same as theirs.

Frank is absolutely correct.
In 1992, when Clinton promised to end welfare as we know it, and he kept his promise. In 1996 he passed The Personal Responsibility & Work Opportunity Reconcillation Act, which meant welfare recipients had to look for work to qualify for welfare.
Recently, Obama waived the mandatory work requirement for welfare recipients. Now bed rest qualifies, getting a rub down qualifies, and rest qualifies.
Obama also advertised, on radio, in English & Spanish advising more people to apply for welfare. This has since been removed.
Oreilly, on a recent program, said that 50% of the people, in the US, have no idea what is going on in this country & the world. In one segment he asked Waters, of Waters' World to go to a California beach and asked simple questions about US history. He asked one young good looking lady, who did the US win their independence from - she answered, you won't believe this - RUSSIA!
I think some posters, on this message board, qualify in that 50% segment.

Frank is absolutely wrong. We've somehow decided in America that we can't just disagree about policy any more; we have to demonize the people we disagree with. We have to label them and call them names. Most importantly, we have to insinuate that these people we disagree with aren't even real Americans in the way we understand the term, *wink wink*.

It's distrubing to watch so many people play this stupid game when we have real problems that aren't being solved because no one wants to look weak.

@ jojuggie
You make fun of those who watch MSNBC and CNN in one post and then quote O'Reilly of Faux News in another. You do realize that you're getting just as biased news ( if not more biased) watching Fox as those channels you mock? Then again, I doubt you do realize it.
