God bless u and thanks for your service to our country, from one proud retired army vet!!!!!!!!! hooooo-haaaa!!!!!!!!!!”
“like i have said folk, just one more tip of the ugly iceberg, and here we go with more lies and mis leading facts to gain more trust in the people who are blind(47%) his greener envio. has cost my company appx. 14 coal trains a week, plant converting to gas, ya well wait till the price of naturl gas goes up!!!! oh oh oh i think it already has!!!!!!!! now what”
“more guns less guns, the argument will go on forever,is there a simple answer? idont believe so. how ever when i was in school, so long ago(grad.1974) and a much different time!!!!! we had a local police officer at our school, it was their duty assignment. they were there mon thru fri just like us kids. the officer wore nice clothes no uniform and had their own office, the students looked at this person as just another school counsoler or teacher. we could stop in and talk to the officer when ever we wanted to about anything, during class change over, he or she was in the hall ways, and all went well, like i said it was a different time!!!!!! times have changed, thats for sure, but in time the school officer went away, why? budget cuts,to much money to keep them on, what ever the reason they went away. shortly after that problems started in the schools, at mine and thru out the country, gang fights in the halls and on the grounds, bulling of other students, even of teachers. so is it time to put officers back in the school system no matter the cost? they should have never been taken away. so maybe the answer is officers back too school, oh and lets put god!!!!! back there also, and how about lets pledge alegents to the flag again and see if that works.”

“My high school (grad 1976) had a fence all the way around it, and was locked at the entrance with a guard to let people in and out. If that's what we need, then that's what we should do.”
“its a sad deal, and like some many have said, we will never really know what caused the problems with this young man, how ever all the libs already know, take away all the guns, well one thing they seem to forget or turn a blind eye to is this, bad guys, crazzy guys, lunitic, it doesnt matter the type, their all going to have a gun or some kind of weapon, remeber this kid stole!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the gun from a friend. maybe he could have driven his car into the mall, running over several people and killing and hurting, what it boiles down to is, their going to get it done one way or the other, whats missing here is good old family up bring, caring and loving, and maybe even a little bit of religion in the young mans life and in the whole specter of life in general for everyone. may gods love and blessing be with the families of this sad ordeal.”

“fuelpumper, please do not take this the wrong way, I think your comment reveals goodness in your heart, however my suggestion is..... Please take a course in English grammar and spelling. No, that will not make you a better person, but you it will just be better for you. Otherwise use a software program such as Microsoft Word to check the grammar and spelling before you post your comments. I say this again, I do not do this to be mean. Merry Christmas.”

“fuelpum....great post. Agree..none of us know what triggered this horrific act.I don't know why people, especially the young ,takes a temporary problem in their life and believe it's the end of the world and kill themselves. When their problem is only temporary, and only a small fraction of their life.But now he gave a big unexpected hardship to his family ,not only dealing with his death, but knowing he killed innocent people before he died..for what?”

“God? How about a little self responsibility? And if his friend did not have the gun, he would have never been able to steal it.”

“Bottom line is we have by far the highest murder rate of any country in the world and we owe that to the availability of guns. It's stupid to suggest that people could use cars to kill as cars were not designed to kill, guns were. Every other country in the world has the same problems we have(lack of religion, bad upbringing, etc.) yet we are so much more efficient at murder. The reason: easy access to guns. And you Repubs can always argue as the NRA argues that had people been more armed, they would have been able to defend themselves. Well, the citizens of Oregon already have the right to carry. Yet, not one of the 10,000 people in the mall that day was able to kill this guy before he murdered 2 innocents.”
“you are so right norse,but people just dont listen anymore, and u see where that has gotten us!!!!!!! in a world of ****!!!!!!!!!!!!! all i can say, is stock up on ammo, food, and prepair for the onslought of all the liberals in the world because they will be the first ones to start crying when the ballon goes up!!!!!!!!!!!!! help me help me. well heres your help libs, call your govt. they,ll help you,ohhhhhhhhhh geeeeezzzzzzzzz, wait wait,ohhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!”
“i.m not a real religious man. but how ever i do believe in some sort of higher power, so my question is this, if this higher power created the heavens and the earth? why then in his or (her) all mighty power, would they have only created a plant as foolish and closed minded as this one!!!!!!!!!!! just wondering!”

“last week i posted a comment that country was heading for the biggest down fall it has ever seen, and i got several comments back from being a raciest to not loving my country and move out, well to those that felt that way, i'm not raciest never have been and never will be,my comment had notheing to do with the fact being black whit blue or green, and not loving my country, in fact i soent 20 years in the US ARMY and would do it again. but folks this here is just the tip of the iceburg of lies this admin and govt has cramed down our throats. so i say once again, this country is heading for one of the biggest down falls we have ever seen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

“YOU ARE RIGHT!~~ TOUCHE!~~
Liberals will now have to find out the hard way.
Not one republican voted for this terrible bill, obamacare..Not one! We tried to tell you how aweful it was but the liberals crucified the republicans back then.
Obama had control of all 3 branches of government The democrats controlled congress, when Obamacare was enacted.
And obamacare cost 2 trillion dollars... He forgot to tell you that part.. Money we do not have!
You are so right... we are headed for a serious crash! Obama just keep printing money! A Country cannot survive like this!
***YOU CANNOT BAIL, BORROW OR SPEND YOUR WAY BACK TO PROSPERITY!
Republicans have been TRYING to tell you this. This is why they oppose Obama's bills so much. It's all going to ...collapse.
Obamacare and Obama's way and politics is UNSUSTAINABLE!”

“If you don't like President Obama's policies, you're a racist, even if you voted for him the first time. If you call people that are illegally in this county illegal aliens, you're a racist. If you think it's a good idea for folks to have an I.D. to vote, you're a racist. If you think too many folks are on welfare, you're a racist. If you're conservative...You are a racist. (4 years later)
If you didn't vote for Hillary, you're a sexist etc. etc.”

“So far, the biggest downfall has been Bush's. one of the few ex presidents whose profile is so low he doesn't show up on any radar screen.
Many parents who's children died for mythological WMD's because of that lying administration will be grateful to Mr. Obama for trying to solve problems peacefully. So many of us Americans are most happy the wars are ending and Osama is dead. All of those chicken hawks who never served a day in combat are ready to send our sons and grandsons to fight in never ending conflicts.
You can cheer for the presidents downfall but I have a grandson in the reserves and I am hoping he only has to go to war to defend this country when attacked. Romney would have been ready to send young men to fight except his sons. When Romney was asked why his sons were not fighting in the wars he was in favor of because he said they were doing the patriotic duty by working on his election.
You wanted King Romney who decided it was simply his turn to be president--at least that is what Ann said--"it's our turn ".
God save President Obama and all the people's of the world. My GOD is not a selfish American God. Thank The Lord!”

“i hope your kidding libbey, but i'm sure your not, for your sake and all your kids and grandkids, lets hope this never happens to the USA, and if it does, its only a matter of time before its all over. keep in mind, N. Korea is being ran by a lunitic, simaliar toa once knowen lunitic from germany!!!!!!!!!!!thank god he didnt have any nucks back then. so libbey best of luck to u in your life. but when the balloon finally goes up, please dont expect any help from your military. it will be gone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
“cindithegreek1, yes you maybe right, but the reason being which i'm sure wont make any differance, were on 24/7 call, there are no holidays, no birthdays, we miss most of our kids growing up, 18 years with the rr,i have been home twice for christmas, i have seen my granddaughter dance once, she is now 9, so u say yes were over paid, maybe we are, but the over payment has cost us a lot in the long run. ya and i know the next argument, then why do it? RIGHT!!!!!!!!! well because it has taken care of my family for 18 years, and in this day and age, i'm just glad to have a job. so i and my family make the best of what we can when we can. i hope this helps some,”
“tom thanks for the email, believe me, the unions have approached the govt. who do u think let the railroads go from a 4 man crew to a two man crew, who do u think let the rr get rid of the cabooses, who do u think let the rr deregulate, sure wasnt the normal tax payer, guess that leaves good old uncle sam. you look at europe, they move the country by rail, both people and products, i was over there about 4 years ago, their rail system puts ours to shame!!!!!!!!!!!!! and about your nephew's railroad, good for him, i hope they do, but like a lot of rails they talk a big show.”

“the uioins are still geting over the 1978 n&w rail road spanking, if they try a strike like cp rr did the fed gov would end it”
“i work for a railroad, they are not controled or ran by the govt. we have guide lines we have to follow put out by the FRA-federal railroad admin. but as far as the up keep of rails, bridges, cars, and engs. its upto the owning railroad. problems is this, we have let the rails go bad, equip is aging, where there use to be 4 man crews there are now 2 man crews,tains are now longer , where there use to be 5 to 10 carmen(poeple who check out safty of cars) onduty in yards, there maybe only 1 or 2 and possiably none on duty, why, coorprate greed, cut backs on major things like rails ect. ect. i could go on for ever, it just needs to stop at the level of the upper greedy coorprate bosses, our ceo wrote him self a 16 million $ bounes check 1st qurt. of the fiscal year. enought said.”

“Sounds like if you haven't done so already that it's time to write a litter to the government and let them know when you say you know. Talking about it here is like spitting in to the wind.
Also, I have a nephew who has been an engineer for one of the railroads that travels through the Rocky Mountain area. Great Northern, or something like that. He talks the railroad he works for as being superconscious regarding safety.”
