It is time for the people of Mifflin County and Pennsylvania to stand up to property tax reform. It's time for the state legislators to do something. The Sentinel cannot handle any more sheriff's sales in the paper, it's just constant. And with the huge tax increase we just endured, it's time to get on your legislators and not just talk about it.
There were 350 bills passed by the Republican-led House. They were sent to the Senate. Zero passed in the Harry Reid Democratic-held Senate. You tell me who's hindering America. Looks to me like Harry Reid and the Democrats in the Senate.
I would like to just sympathize with the ... kid who pays to drive to school. ... Too bad they don't have a bus that takes them right to the door. Welcome to the real world. ...
I'm getting sick and tired of these bleeding heart people in Washington, D.C. and the White House and the media - ABC, CBS, NBC - all saying pity, pity on us for the Hamas when they're the terrorists. They show what's happening to them but they never show what they're doing to Israel. So I think it's about time that the media quits playing politics and quits defending the Democrats and lets Israel alone and lets Israel do what Isreael's gonna do with Hamas, and that is hopefully wipe them from the face of the earth.
Well, Obama's energy plan is finally coming to roost. On Page A3 of The Sentinel (Tuesday), read the proposed rate changes. ... That's all due to his energy plans coming home to roost. I'm glad you all voted for him, now you can pay for him.
Used to be a government by the people, for the people, but with all the taxes, it's now a government by the rich slamming it to the poor.
All you Democrats out there, show your patriotic duty, just don't vote on this next election. You lack the good intelligence to do so.
