I have two thoughts for this message:
1. Has Phil Mueller of Crown Point forgotten the 47 percent of people sucking the government's teat, leaving the rest of us to pay the bill? How can he possibly think that the "rich" 1 percent of Republicans are responsible for the financial mess? We need to have the 47 percent start earning what the government "gives" them so they can pay taxes to help solve the mess. Taxing the 1 percent isn't going to fix anything.
2. It's about time Israel fights back. How long do they have to take bombings and sniper attacks? Now that they are on the aggressive, Hamas wants them to stop shelling and is calling for peace talks. What nonsense! The Arab countries have long hated the Jews and Israel, and so far they are not interested in peace, only annihilation. These radical hatreds need to stop.
