It appears to me that Tim Ryan stands for nothing but that which would be obvious to anyone. Where does he stand on border security and illegal immigration, Islamic terrorism, coal mining and usage, gun control or any other controversial issue? Get him into one of these issues and I suspect you'll see some really fast side-stepping. He'll continue to be afraid to make any waves; to draw little attention so as to keep that precious job at all costs.

Further evidence of our government pushing us toward total militarization of our entire nation. Why on earth would any school district need an armored vehicle, of grenade launchers or assault rifles? Can any doubt remain that insanity pervades our nation's capitol?

My how times change. From what I read in this article, my grandparents, my parents, the parents of friends and most of my teachers would have been indicted under todays laws. We, the children, all survived and became productive citizens. Why don't we attack the really serious problems of the world instead of being so protective and politically correct?

A simplified tax code has been proposed by many. An ever-growing government has scoffed at each and every simplification idea put forth for, among other effects, most would eliminate the need for the I.R.S., the most potent political tool our elected officials have in their pocket.

Does it appear to anyone else that this consolidated buying power has been a failure? Why has this approach not been successful as planned, after all, it has worked for many other groups. Could it be that the producer knows he only has to deal (beat down) one purchaser instead of many? A price increase this dramatic bears an investigation.

It sure does seem innocent and wonderful, doesn't it? And it's all free!But wait, doesn't everything we've ever gotten "for free" from our government always ultimately end up with government imposing demands upon us at a later date? Perhaps maybe just a "smidgen" of freedom?

When our elected officials will stand for their party before they will stand up and protect our nation and the citizens who voted them into office, our nation is at risk. When lobbyists from other nation are given consideration over citizens our economy is at risk. In summary, The United States of America has been sold down the river by our elected officials, present and past, by both parties.

is it possible that a greater usage of illegal drugs in the community could have an impact on these statistics?

While the courts have backed these random checkpoints, I feel they are unconstitutional. Since their inception they seem to have expanded their original purpose. Studies done in other states have shown these checkpoints to be a highly inefficient use of our tax dollars.

One has to wonder just how far we the people are going to allow this insanity to continue.
