Those who will elect the new pope will not be allowed to use Twitter. In other words, there will be no tweeting Cardinals.

I just joined the NRA. I heard Democrats saying the NRA is made up of gun nuts. I decided my friends who are members are regular Americans and could use my support. I don't even own a gun. Twenty-five dollars is a cheap price to do some small thing to keep my rights safe from this president.

The Democrats are counting on winning back Congress in 2014 to push through all their hopes and dreams. If that is their idea of fair government for our people, I hope they don't gripe when Republicans do the same. It's no wonder there is a growing number of people of neither party.

Some teacher in Indiana shows her intolerance by wanting a dance for straights only. So gays protest her intolerance with their own with hate emails and pornographic pictures. In our old America, you could think what you wanted and had freedom to disagree with others. That will soon be legislated away.

The workers for the highway county department don't know how to grade roads or put gravel on them.

Some neighbors are so dumb. They put out mice and rat poison and kill their cat, plus their neighbors'. American voters, don't be fooled again by one who promises the moon but offers no real ideas or solutions.

Can't watch the telly without seeing catheters for men or women, men's “performance pills” or women's hygienic products. … Nothing is sacred and everything is fair in this decadent zeitgeist of love, war and marketing.

If that Russian meteor had happened in the U.S., Wayne LaPierre (NRA executive vice president and chief executive officer) and his NRA could have shot it down.

Answer this: Mom, how come Boy Scouts teach us to respect everyone, but they don't?

Went to the Math Counts competition Feb. 16 at IPFW and saw plenty of private/parochial and a few SACS (Southwest Allen County Schools) school teams, but no FWCS (Fort Wayne Community Schools) or EACS (East Allen County Schools) teams participating. Why is that?

In view of NBC's “SNL” (“Saturday Nigh Live”) depiction of Jesus in their comedy video, we would encourage any Christian to find other networks to support and view — including our local channel.

Someday soon, those Europeans complaining about horsemeat will wish they had a little of it to supplement their diet. The collapse of fiat paper money is going to be the cure for obesity all over the world. Just keep demanding more spending by the government. Your future is going to be brutal.

I wonder if Jesus considers being rich moral?

I have a few questions for all of the people submitting homophobic rants. What are you afraid of? Why do you fill your heart with hate? What are you hiding?

I am tired of hearing about how the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer, and that the rich need to share the wealth, or pie, as one ranter mentioned. Why? … They earned it, you did not.

Every Fort Wayne teacher should watch the movie “Won't Back Down” and be inspired to do a better job.

Mayor: Forget moving that statue. We do not want our city to look like a city in Europe or on the East Coast either. Let's make our city look clean and healthy. Concentrate on empty houses and buildings, run-down neighborhoods and crime. Tourists are not going to drive here to see a statue. … Also, remember grass lawns are more healthy than concrete.

If this sequester does happen, I would like to see congressional Republicans come to work on March 1 wearing hard hats. If the sky falls in, as President Obama claims, they need protection. Our president, who theatrically cries wolf constantly, is getting tiring. He is on TV so much he should own his own station.
