Don't like trees? Move to Arizona! Bad enough the state removes all trees from right-of-ways and power companies can't trim properly. Now the mayor and half the council have targeted trees on city property.

Not even close: Obama "is the worst thing that could happen to the U.S.A." You have a limited imagination. How about a couple dozen nuclear weapons landing in America. How about widespread famine, flooding, poisoned water, a fatal incurable contagious disease. All of those would be worse than Obama. We've never reached "worst."

What do they know? Regarding their recent criticisms of Obama's foreign policy: Who is advising Mitt Romney? Sarah Palin? And who is advising Donald Rumsfeld? George W. Bush and Dick Cheney? Also, Mr. Rumsfeld, where are all those weapons of mass destruction that you told us were in Iraq?

It’s shared coverage: "Why am I responsible for someone else's history of physiological problems or mental health issues?" Health insurance is shared coverage. That hasn't changed. Plus, I assume you're not a sociopath and, therefore, have compassion for others. "Can we maybe just take care of ourselves?" Sure – if you're a billionaire.

Why they run: The reason politicians try so hard to get re-elected is that they would “hate” to have to make a living under the laws they've passed.

Lied again: The time to sign up for Obamacare will not be extended, but it was. He lied again. Why are people willing to sell their souls to all the Obama lies?

It is a right: "When was it decided that health care is an inherent right?" Probably when somebody wrote that thing about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Without health, therefore health care, that whole life and the pursuit of happiness thing disappears.

ACA haters: Please tell me, how do you pay outrageous medical bills for outrageously priced tests and examinations? Am I surrounded by millionaires? Please share your secret; I must do something wrong.

Here we go again: Council member has enough time to get elected (without opposition) in Sharpsburg but not enough time to vote on town business because he’s not at council meetings.

Memo to Nulink: We sure appreciate you trying to keep the rates down, but as far as I am concerned, you can drop MTV. Nickelodeon, VH1, CMT, Spike, Comedy Central and TV Land. Don’t watch them, never have. Let ‘em go. Good riddance.
