Letter: High on the hog

The problem today is that politicians make as much as movie actors and singers. That is not right, period!

What happened to making a living the old fashioned way, instead of trying to live high on the hog?

People nowadays want to be paid $10 or more or they refuse to work. To me, I'll work for low pay and still get things done legally if you get my drift.

I'm proud because I'm very old fashioned and will help anyone that I can! That is the way I was raised.

Politicians have had it given to them and they don't care about how others get by as long as the taxes are paid on time. Hint, hint!

A.N. More name calling from the tolerant one and that is because that is all one can do when he has nothing smart to say.
Your vote for qualifications over color and did it twice in Obama's case...now tell us all the qualifications he had as no one else has a clue....and I'm the oxymoron?
Putting up a list of qualified Black Republicans is racist? Oh wait that is what Obama is claiming because no one likes him...Whites put him in office and he forgets that part, but uses the word racism quite freely like you and the rest of your lefty cohorts...it is kind of like a person who swears all the time because lack of good vocabulary.
All of the people listed has a back ground and qualifications and that is racism, evidently even the left got tired of blaming Bush so everything is racism now....I get it!

“A.N. it is obvious who the racist is after reading you ridiculous letter.”

Whoa, Capt Oxymoron, hang on! I’m not the one who listed a litany of black candidates she would vote for. I simply out – as specified “color notwithstanding” – that each of the individuals I pointed out is a dyed in the wool nut-case.

“I thought you lefties were the party of tolerance....”

Again – I am not the one who posted a litany of “black candidates.” I prefer to vote based on qualifications and not color.

"an Arizona senator makes just about a third of what a firefighter makes in Phoenix"

So what your trying to tell me is that an Arizona Senator is being paid what equates to below poverty level wages. Maybe you need to do some research. On paper, the $24,000 they claim to be paid, is not even a believable number except for those who are gullible.

I always knew you suffer the same sickness that liberals had and you just proved it.
Wise up! I would have voted for Obama if I thought he was the man for the job, but after five years in office and taking our country down with his ideology, I'm sure glad I didn't.

Linda, great list. I would also add U.S. Supreme Court Clarence Thomas who the libs tried to derail his nomination with a phony scandal.

It is very sad how Anson can say that about Dr. Alveda King.

“Black candidates I would vote for in a heartbeat. Dr. Ben Carson - Col Allen West -
Rep Tim Scott (SC) - Herman Cain - Dr. Alan Keyes - J. C. Watts…”

Absolutely astounding. Every one of the above is a total right wing nut that has said and done some of the stupidest things ever imagined. What is it, Linda, with you and your love affair with right wing nut cases, color notwithstanding?

Oh Ya, check it out, an Arizona senator makes just about a third of what a firefighter makes in Phoenix...do some research before you write down your bits of wisdom!
Linda I didn't think it was necessary to educate
the uninformed about the Black conservatives who could do a much better job than Obama but I'm glad you did as I don't think the left has a clue.

Article comment by: THE TEA PARTY IS ON KOCH

OK, 35,000 plus is a start..but I don't think that number will jump start the economy. And I am pretty sure none of the above proposed the pipeline project (which I approve of by the way). I'm talking about someone creating millions of new, good paying jobs. Which of these individuals have offered plans for that? What, if any, tea party/neo-con/regressive HAS proposed millions of new jobs, and what jobs are they? Help me out here!

I will say again, there are many Black men who are conservative who could step in and do a much better job than this Black man folks like you voted in simply because he is Black...period....knowing nothing else about him. Oh yeah, he was a Senator who never showed up to vote.
As I say there are many Black conservatives but I don't plan on educating you, but does this name come up on your liberal news channel? I doubt it.
Does Doctor Ben Carson rattle your brain as I doubt it, as the left media is scared to death of him and so is Obama....there are several more but look it up you might learn something!
You support a President that has done nothing but hurt us and you still support him....WOW....and you vote, that is scary!

Black candidates I would vote for in a heartbeat.

Each one would work to cut insane spending, balance the budget, rid us of insane departments overstepping the boundaries of the Constitution, immediately ok the Trans-Canada pipeline creating 35,000 jobs instantly and thousands more on the side.

Dr. Ben Carson - World renowned Dr - would work to outlaw obamacare.

Col Allen West - Formerly had his election stolen in FL by fraud. War hero.

Utah Sen Mia Love - From Utah's 4th Congressional District.

Rep Tim Scott (SC) - More Conservative brains in his little finger than obama's entire marxist admin.

Michael Steele - Would be a good pick -

Herman Cain - Already showed us his winning side in the private sector. Common sense, spending money wisely.

Dr. Alan Keyes - Brilliant, devout Christian, Constitutionalist

Star Parker - One bright Conservative.

Former Rep J. C. Watts - Talk him into running again.

Lynn Swann -

Ward Connerly - Love this one.

Dr. Alveda King - MLK's very Republican conservative niece.

Also Stephen Broden (TX), Isaac Hayes (IL), Bill Randall (NC), Marvin Scott (IN) Chuck Smith (VA), Bill Marcy (MS) and Charlotte Bergmann (TN). All Conservatives conservative. All have run - hopefully will do so again.

Not black but Mexican - NM Gov Martinez

"Kenny not all politicians make high wages as the senate in Arizona pays very little"

I'd say if politicians are to be paid, they should be paid the same as a policeman, fireman, or even that of our service members, all of which risk their lives everyday.

You are a tyrant, expecting people to work for slave wages. People like you will be thrown into the lake of fire.

@the lefty loons are on soros: Project 21, nbra.info, ranker.com.
Do your own research.

@Capt. Nice: This country is already a banana republic in some areas.
1) Most of us support legal immigration but with the unending illegal crimigrants being aided in every way even by our own government, there's no way we can assimilate everyone. Schools, prisons, jobs for our own citizens and health care facilities are overloaded. People comment here about not being able to find a job, yet our immigrants (legal and illegal) seem to have no problems.

2) The unsupportable public employee pensions supported by career politicians caving into union demands so they can get re-elected are driving cities and even some states into reorganization or Ch. 9 bankruptcy.

3) The regulators try to control our lives in every way from the UN Agenda 21, health care(obamamonstrosity) to education(Common Core) to using the EPA to lock up millions of acres to stop the development of our abundant natural resources and of course, block family supporting jobs.



@KLB: It is funny how people of both parties that make relatively low salaries end up being millionaires after a few terms in office. Term limits might be a good start.

"I would vote for many conservative Black men"
Name a few of the Black conservative men you would vote for and tell us what jobs they would propose to make our Country more economically viable. I'm talking jobs..not trickle down theory. Share with us capt.

Kenny not all politicians make high wages as the senate in Arizona pays very little, but the real scare is that all great democracies have collapsed in 200 to 250 years due to financial ruin.
Our country has existed about 236 years so do the math, this country is about to be a banana republic and then we will see liberals become non-existent as there won't be anyone to pay their bills.
Obama has done everything he can to speed things up to prove me right, so look out liberals you ride is about to end.
Obama say's people do not like him because he is Black and he is probably right in a lot of cases, but in mine I would vote for many conservative Black men who could do a much better job and who would not devote their whole term or terms on racism.
