To all of the … (cyclists) using the Aboite Trails and/or River Greenway, please learn proper trail etiquette. When approaching walkers or runners from behind, give a warning prior to passing such as, “On your left” or “Passing on your left.”

If you vote based on a title or commercial, you show your hatred for everyone who fought for America's independence.

After watching the debates, I have a new name for the president, Pinocchiobama.

After the Maplecrest Road extension opens, who is going to keep heavy truck and trailer traffic from invading the narrow residential area north to I-469?

So the Tea Party is poisoning the Republican party? It seems to me that the GOP party has been hijacked by RINO's (Republican In Name Only). They can't win without our vote so, if the Tea Party starts its own party, the Republican party will collapse under its own weight … .

If President Obama is re-elected, he should hire Mitt Romney to show him how to get the jobs. I know how. Quit giving tax breaks to companies that do business overseas.

If anyone needs any medical attention, go rob any business — get jail time (maybe) — and get all the help you need. No wonder so many want to come to America. Free ride all the way around.

Wouldn't it be nice that, when you go to buy anything, the label says, “Made in the U.S.A.?”

Do politicians really pay attention to the voters? No!

Get real, people! Millionaires cannot relate to the middle and poor classes. The old saying, “The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.”

On Nov. 6, vote to preserve keeping the government from interfering with religious convictions. Separation of church and state should work both ways. They are very good at keeping any trace of religion out of public places but should be equally strict in staying out of religion's spaces.

If the city police department is so shorthanded and can't afford to hire, why don't they increase the reserve force like the county has? It is free labor by trained people with an interest in police work and helping their community.

In reality, government programs that help provide for the poor subsidize the rich because these self-proclaimed “job creators” haven't created enough jobs, and refuse to pay a living wage for the ones they have.

A new golden rule for sane and rational adults in the 21st century: If it doesn't hurt others, do whatever you want. Why? Because it's nobody's business, and how dare they think it is.

President Clinton gave a yearly surplus to President George W. Bush, so he cut taxes and quickly ran yearly deficits. Since we are still running yearly deficits, how will Mitt Romney's promise to cut taxes again miraculously balance the budget?

I can't believe how quickly people forget what a disastrous situation President George W. Bush left this country in, and I can't believe that those same people think that, if Mitt Romney becomes president, we won't go down the same road.

The more money one person takes and hoards, the less there is for others in need.

To those who claim that the Obama administration is trying to deflect any responsibility for preventing the killings of four U.S. diplomats in Libya less than two months ago, please answer this: For nearly eight years, who in the Bush administration took any responsibility for not preventing the deaths of nearly 3,000 U.S. citizens on Sept. 11, 2001?

Overwhelming sadness is the only way to describe how Jesus must feel when he thinks about the way humanity treats animals and the earth.

Mitt Romney is basing his campaign run on his job-creating expertise. If he knows how to create jobs, why was Massachusetts 47th out of the 50 states in job creation during his term as its governor?

Mitt Romney is hiding his money in foreign countries, hiding his tax returns, hiding who his campaign bundlers are, and hiding the details of what he will really do this nation. I bet he won every game of Hide & Seek as a child!

Wake up, America. Who would vote for this administration now in the White House after the debacle in Libya? Four brave young lives taken over the incompetent leadership. Enough deception the last four years. End the untruthfulness. Vote to stop very poor leadership!

If you are a Republican and you vote for Richard “If a woman is impregnated by rape it's something God intended” Mourdock or Todd “Legitimate rape” Akin, you have a problem. These people aren't Republicans, not even close. They are radical evangelicals who are afraid to stand on their own.
