I, too, like kittens, puppies, blue skies and rainbows but these are elected (and appointed) persons who are responsible for the control of our hard earned tax dollars. We should be looking over the shoulder of every single one of them if we wish to maximize the effect of those dollars in our community.

Mr. Ryan is not a fighter for our freedoms. He is quick to pick the easy battle and to grab some free PR from the Vindy. He has been moving up the Congressional ladder by remaining a political party hack. He stands for very little and seems to care little about border security, increasing debt or our active military.

What's the beef from Mr. Hightower? Don't most people have to take drug tests to get even a part-time job before they get a paycheck? Why doesn't he get upset about those tests? I don't see this testing matter as a political party matter but, rather, merely common sense.

The Democratic Party to which I have belonged and supported for many years is no longer a party which respects neither the constitution or the American public. Sadly, I keep seeing my party allowing a person I consider to be a wannabe dictator stripping us of all rights, one by one. What's coming down the road will reduce us to a third world nation-a nation of enslaved people. There will be no more "freebies".

Shooting one of these thugs would have the shooter in prison as the shooter would have no warning or indication that his life might be in danger.

Perhaps we are losing these aircraft because our representatives in Congress are great showboaters but they really aren't very strong in representing us-they'd rather not make any waves while accumulating seniority.

The article is correct in saying that tyrants lie. That is once again proven by analyzing the words and deeds of our current leader.

Most IRS functions could be eliminated by simply changing our tax codes, however, once a government agency is formed it is almost impossible to eliminate that agency. Think about whether or not we citizens feel a strong need for EPA, IRS, Dep't of Energy, Dep't of Education, etc. Then, though not an agency, the many Czars appointed. Government rarely downsizes, it only grows and takes whatever it can from those governed.

Despite some wonderful progress, Youngstown remains a sick city and this is reflected by the persons seeking to become Mayor of Youngstown. It is so very sad to think that a city seeking to rebuild its greatness can only field sub marginal candidates. Should any one of these candidates win election there will have to be puppet masters pulling the strings to get anything done and these masters are the ones who have been harming us for decades.
