Kingman Letter: Country needs action, not comments

We the people are the problem and the solution to our country's woes, when we keep electing the same people to the House and the Senate decade after decade, with no results except the inside traders are now the real 1-percenters with money gained from what most go to jail for.

We continue to accept a two-party debate when there are at least seven parties running. We buy the lies on TV. It is faster than doing real research on a candidate.

No, I do not need your comments. You can send them to P.O. Box 908, Kingman, AZ 86402 - if, and only if, you want serious discussions about serious problems.

Don't hide behind your computer; get into action.

Jack Shepherd

Anson, did you seriously just ask how someone can profit from the sale of a completely failed network, then, in the very same comment, harp on romney, like always, for the profiteering of bankrupted companies??? Lol too funny!!

“You obviously have no clue what all has run on Al Jazeera. This will give them 40 million households in our country to spread their hatred and lies.”

You obviously have never watched Al Jazeera because had you done so you would know that they are the most respected news outlet in the world reporting on issues in the Middle East and they (unlike FAUX News) do not lie or spread hatred.

“And it obviously has escaped you that Algore was VP of the United States. One would think he would be a little more pro-American …”

You mean like Willard the Money Hider (who really didn’t want to become president) whose specialty was bankrupting American companies, putting American workers out on the street, stealing the pensions funds of American workers while shipping American jobs to COMMUNIST CHINA and hiding his money off-shore to avoid paying taxes? Is that the kind of “pro-American” you favored?

@ Linda Athens

"This will give them 40 million households in our country to spread their hatred and lies. Think that will be good for us?"

Oh you mean like Fox News!

"You do remember muslims knocked the Twin Towers down? And much more?"

Do you remember who killed millions at Nagasaki and Hiroshima?

That's right, and we live well together with our Japanese friends that held no grudge for acts of a few radical Americans! How soon we forget right?

Jack, is this a ploy to keep the Post Office in the black?

While I agree with you in concept, you have to remember that in 2010 midterm elections most state legislatures went Republican, allowing them to draw congressional district lines however they want.

The ratios of Congress will remain VERY stagnant for probably the next 5-6 years, and will only change as urban centers expand and change demographics for suburban districts.

Beyond that, you're going to need to get on a bandwagon and pick one of several "third" parties out there to support on its own.

“His completely failed network has just been sold to the Emir of Qatar's funded Arab news network Al Jazeera for $100 million.”

Hang on just a minute, I thought that was the mantra of the Right? Sell to the highest bidder no matter what! And if it was a “completely failed network” how did he manage to profit from its sale? And on what do you base the “completely failed” comment?”

Where was your concern as that hero of the right Willard bankrupted (and still does) American companies, put American workers out on the streets, stole their pensions and shipped those American jobs to COMMUNIST CHINA? What about his investing in COMMUNIST CHINESE sweatshops while hiding his money off-shore to avoid paying taxes? Oh, wait, I get it ANYTHING done by a Right Winger is okay.

Term limits! Two four year terms for house and senate. Get the lobbyists OUT of politics. No more corporate welfare. Limit the Supreme Court to ten years not life.

So did you hear the one about the Vice President of a once great country, at the mock swearing in for Senator Heidi Heitkamps.

So the VP says "spread your legs, you're going to be frisked". Everyone laughs. He is such a funny guy. Yes, he is a Democrat because Republicans first, don't speak like that in front of ladies nor would they put down the office of the VP in such a coarse, crass way and secondly, if they did, liberals would be screaming until hell freezes over.

This is as crass as Kim Kardashian, knocked up by her rap boyfriend making the rounds to brag about it. Says Kim, it's hard being pregnant. What is she, in her 42nd day? Her and the VP would make good partners. Both bring down the quality of America.

No wonder:

Your post explains exactly what I have been saying about the Low Information Voters electing obama again. You made the case for me. Thank you!

You obviously have no clue what all has run on Al Jazeera. This will give them 40 million households in our country to spread their hatred and lies. Think that will be good for us?

You do remember muslims knocked the Twin Towers down? And much more?

And it obviously has escaped you that Algore was VP of the United States. One would think he would be a little more pro-American rather than align himself with a world that pushes violence, abusing and killing women and more.

He is also a real wacko concerning global warming that doesn't exist. I read his book - what parts you could read with any understanding at all it was such gobbledy gook. So he is against....guess what? BIG OIL COMPANIES. Guess where Qatar gets the money to buy the station. BIG OIL.

"Glenn Beck was interested in buying the network and Algore stated Al Jazeera was closer to his thinking basically then Beck is. ???? "

Wow, I couldn't imagine what it would be like with another radical right wing News Network out there competing with Fox. I would of sold it to anyone other than Beck dang self. Pretty bad when they have to sell something to the UAE before they let an off sided, out of control nut job!

Jack: It's time for the Second American revolution. Do you still have those traps I sold you? Hahaha!

Congratulations to Algore. His completely failed network has just been sold to the Emir of Qatar's funded Arab news network Al Jazeera for $100 million. Crazy Al just sold his soul to the devil.

First, they hate our guts, will now have access to 40 million American viewers to push all things islamic as they only bought the access to Americans, not the current shows which will be dumped.

Glenn Beck was interested in buying the network and Algore stated Al Jazeera was closer to his thinking basically then Beck is. ???? Really, and this man was a heart beat from the Presidency? Well, he and obama do have things in common obviously.

It's just that all those women being beaten and beheadings that go on if they do not comply (or even if they do) bothers me. Thank God Tipper escaped this nut job.

Welcome to America islam.

“I'm very active and support a son in law who is a State Senator. I have gone door to door for him and we have been successful in getting him re-elected three times....”

And therein lies the problem. Dump all incumbents and term limit them all to no more than two terms. Remember, no matter how much you point the finger of blame no liberal or Democrat has been responsible for many, many years for the mess this state is in.

So is your solution the Americsan Third Position Party? It would explain why you don't want comments. Too afraid to go public just yet? Good luck with that. I'm sure you will be able to get a few like-minded clowns to join you.

LOL

You are right about "we the people" are the problem and should get more active in doing something about it.
I think the two party system would work if the Republicans would stand behind their beliefs and vote accordingly and if the Democrats would become a little smarter and realize what they are doing, because our country is on track to becoming another Mexifornia.
It is easy to sit behind your computer and hit the "prove it" button over and over, but it sure does not accomplish anything.
I'm very active and support a son in law who is a State Senator. I have gone door to door for him and we have been successful in getting him re-elected three times....
I wonder if these so called know it all's that write in do anything other than flap their lips, I kinda doubt it as they are home waiting for their next obama pay check.
This country is in a sad state of affairs and until we get honest, intellegent people who are patriotic and care more for their country than getting rich off the tax payers, we will continue to go down hill.
