To The Daily Sun,
Isn't it great how gas prices are falling? Even heating oil has come down some and in a cold mid-winter this can be a help to many of us. President Obama is taking bows for his policies which have achieved this. Only problem is he has had nothing to do with it. Facts are that oil production on private lands has increased by 61 percent but on government (Obama controlled) land it is down 6 percent. Only thing he did was he didn't interfere with private land production as he has with lands and sea that he controls.
Mr. President could actually help lower the price even more if he lifted his administration long bans on drilling. Also, if he approved the Keystone pipeline that could save billions in transport costs. Right now oil from western Canada is shipped by rail to our refineries in the South. BNSF (Burlington Northern-Santa Fe), the railroad that own all the lines from there, charges $30 a barrel. The Keystone would cost only $10 barrel. An interesting fact is that big bucks Obama/Democratic supporter Warren Buffett owns the BNSF. Not hard to connect these dots folks, unless some don't want to.
Lefty writers here are telling us how well the economy is doing. Wall Street is booming, banks are making all kinds of money, unemployment is down under something or other. Great. And only after six years of Obama policies. The other side of that coin is we have the lowest job participation rate since 1978, the middle class has been hit like a hammer driving so many down under the poverty line and reports say wages have been stagnant now for years while prices rise.
So what does our fearless leader say he'll do to fix things? Veto the Keystone. Borrow more billions and spend, spend, spend. Of course those on the left support this and just deny that other people's money will ever run out, even if they have to mortgage our great-grandchildren s futures. And for those on that side of reality let's wait and see what the president does with all those bills Harry Reid blocked in the Senate for years after they finally get passed and sent to the president's desk. Bet we won't hear anything about the President of "No" from them.

To The Daily Sun,
If Obama's State of the Union speech had a purpose, it wasn't to signal he was going to compromise, as Bill Clinton did 20 years ago, when he faced the same situation of opponents holding Congress. Clinton used his speech to trumpet "the era of big government was over" suggesting he would work with Republicans to reform welfare and dramatically cut spending to improve the effectiveness of government.
Mr. "Incompetent " used the occasion to once again denigrate and deride the people that just handed Democrats their second major defeat in four years. Clinton produced a highly accomplished presidency, while Obama has produced continual, divided, delusional and dysfunctional government. He owns a lousy job approval rating to prove that failure. His own party even refuses to be seen with him because the majority of voters now see Obama for what he always was, a political light weight, arrogant, incompetent ideologue. Obama sent 20 million Americans packing from the middle class as he produced continuous income declines for main street and unprecedented wealth for the already-rich.
No Obama policy has been more destructive to the center and constructive to Wall Street than zero percent interest rates. Zero interest rates allow the rich and big business to borrow trillions for free. Zero interest rates is the jet fuel that fills the pockets of the rich while they propel profits to the moon for large corporations. Zero interest rates are to the stock market and the rich what cocaine is to an addict. Obama is the head drug dealer in DC town for that shell game, all the while suggesting Republicans are the cause of inequality. This is a donkey joke worthy of Johnny Carson's old monologue.
Barack Obama has aimed the zero interest fire hose of gasoline on the stock market causing it to explode to record highs, taking inequality to even greater heights. Record inequality today can be laid only in one place. The policies of Barack Obama.
Obama used the State of the Union for one purpose. To ring the 2016 presidential election bell. Democrats are not going to have a black man running next year for president. They are going to have a filthy rich, white woman, a member of the Americas privileged aristocracy. In 2012 Democrats screamed such a background disqualified Mitt Romney. I bet enormous wealth and sleeping with Wall Street won't be reasons to eliminate anyone next year. This all echoes what Obama consultant Jonathan Gruber so hilariously pointed out last month. Democrats simply think all the rest of us are idiots. You can confirm Gruber's thinking by simply reading the whack-o rants of the Sun's equivalent of the three stooges, Loesch, Veverka, and Hoyt.
Hillary Clinton has ties to the biggest companies and banks on Wall Street, investment wealth that mysteriously appeared, murky real estate deals, including close connections to Walmart where she spent eight years on their board of directors. I do not think such a résumé will impress blacks. Blacks will not be voting 96 percent for Democrats next year.
Democrats need a new "sting." That "sting " is you. It means handout promises to some new slice of America to replace millions of lost black votes. That new target, the middle class. The people whose lives and living standards Obama has castrated for six straight years with lowered living standards and lower incomes while sticking them with a trillion dollar Obamacare tab he forgot to mention was higher taxes. It took the U.S. Supreme court to properly label that little Obama sleight of hand. Now he wants to throw you a bone. Don't "bend over" for it.
Jonathan Gruber was right. Obama does think we are all idiots, just like the three stooges do.

Wow! Deflategate has arrived at The Daily Sun.
Roger Simpson from Moultonborough had a short letter regarding this. I have to agree with his thoughts on the matter and if he or other fans are interested there is a great site (nepatriotsdraft.com) where many of us talk football, the drafts, players and everything football. All are welcome and many knowledgeable reporters and fans exchange ideas and news. Come join us.
So Roger, another thinking might be that footballs inflated inside a warm building, say 68 degrees and then taken outside where the temp may be 20 or 30 degrees colder, well anyone with a little basic science knows the psi will decrease. How much, would have to do testing, but some at least. Another consideration fans are pointing to is that every ball from both teams is inspected by the officials, and that game was no exception, and every ball passed inspection.
Seems to me to be a non-story because all the balls were checked and corrected at half time and it didn't help the Colts one bit. Big bunch of sour grapes it seems to me.

To The Daily Sun,
In response to James Veverka's letter concerning President Obama's State of the Union speech (Ba, ba, black sheep have you any wool). In other words, I steal from working people to support bums. America, it's time to wake up, our country is in a mess, we need a president who trusts in God to lead our nation, that's for sure, Obama is not that man.
A president who stands up for abortion (the murder of unborn Americans) and gay marriage, a man married to a man, a woman married to a woman is a sin against God, and the whole human race. Listen America, homosexual marriage produces nothing but shame, and no children (our next generation), God said it, I agree, he said "Don't you know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Don't be deceived, nether fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God (Cor 6:9-10).
Before we the people elect a president, pray and ask got who you put in office, another Obama will be the end of our nation, wake up folks you know I speak the truth.
I am not a Christian Taliban, Mr.Veverka, we love the lord, the Taliban murder and destroy people. Don't you remember 9/11 New York, twin towers, ect.
A closing word, I believe every child who evil people has aborted (murdered) are in Gods heaven and Jesus is playing with them, their savior, Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not forbid them, for such is the kingdom of God (Luke 18:16). America, we don't murder unborn children, and uphold ungodly marriage of homosexuals, our souls cry out, "In God we trust" and obey His law, not man's.

To The Daily Sun,
Once again, in his most recent letter, Steve Earle validates my opinion that he is not so much interested in facts and the truth as he is in perpetuating a lie.
In keeping with the traditions of Joseph Goebbels, he and the right-wing hope that by keeping the lie alive more people will come to believe it. He would rather see President Obama maligned by lies rather than be represented by truth because, as Goebbels states, "Truth is the mortal enemy of the lie."
Earle is predisposed to trust the worst and believe that the administration would do horrible things and then conspire to cover them up. So anything that provides evidence, including the lengthy Republican-led House Intelligence Committee Benghazi report, after all the build-up, hype, and squandering millions of taxpayer dollars, is going to be rejected by Earle, who will resist any facts that complicate his view of reality and the right-wing agenda.
Despite reaffirming the findings of numerous previous investigations, conservatives won't accept the findings and want more investigations. Earle proclaims, "We the people want answers." While I'm not sure who these "people" are. I'm sure they won't be satisfied until they get the "right" answers.
In the past, I've mentioned Earle's statement, "I don't have to prove anything." In his letter, he fabricates a story about President Obama and lies, when in actuality he was responding to my questioning his sources and integrity. He furthers his lie by attributing to me a statement that "Obama didn't lie", a statement I never made, but "the world already knows." It must be the "world" according to Earle.
Earle is now offering up Bill Maher, a political satirist, as a source for his "facts". The comedian, responding to the deadly attack on a French satirical magazine, stated, "I know most Muslim people would not have carried out an attack like this," but "hundreds of millions of Muslims applaud these terrorist attacks." While Maher is a step up from Fox News, I would still question his sources — or maybe he doesn't have to prove anything. Maher has also stated that caring for minorities, women, the oppressed and downtrodden are "liberal principles". If we are to believe, as Earle does, that Maher is a source of "facts", we then can assume that liberals have cornered the market on caring for others and that conservatives are apparently incapable of doing so.
