We can't trust Obama, his words
We just had another promise from President Obama that he will create more jobs if he can just spend more money we don't have.
I have heard some say his words made sense to them and the Republicans should go along with his plan.
My problem is that this is the same man who said his past plans would create jobs. Those plans are just like this plan; there is no plan.
Just like his health care plan, we have to pass it to find out what is in it. There is no plan.
Why trust him when all he has is words, not facts.
He has spent trillions of money we don't have and we have massive unemployment. We need to reduce the regulations and government to allow our capitalist system to work creating jobs and security for more people.
Republicans were correct to laugh at his words because they know it will not work and there is not a bill.
He wants more taxes and no cuts in spending or regulations. We cannot trust this man and must reject his words, which are hollow and will lead to ruin.

Red Bank does good cleanup job
To Mr. Chris Dorsey, city manager, City of Red Bank:
We want to thank you and your wonderful staff for the outstanding job they have done sine the April tornado. As I have said before, the Public Works Department is the very best and your entire staff is an asset to the residents of Red Bank as well.
The amount of debris has been overwhelming and it is hard to believe the amount of work that has been accomplished.
I know we are proud of all of the employees and are grateful for all you have done.

Media agenda limits knowledge
It never ceases to amaze me how we as Americans can keep putting people in the White House who don't seem to have our best interests at heart. But then again we are surrounded by news and media outlets that seem to have a hidden agenda as to what we, the ignorant masses, are allowed to know.
We must ask ourselves why the media in general ignores someone like Ron Paul. He appears to be honest. Has professed the same ideas about small government and freedom and liberty for three decades in the House of Representatives, wants to bring our troops home, end the Federal Reserve, has had no scandals to speak of, seems to understand what America is supposed to represent.
Oh well, I guess they know better than we do. We'll just vote for Perry or Romney and then go back to sleep.
Goodnight, America, wherever you used to be.
