|Let them moan, I'm talking back.|
“I’m a letter carrier for the post office. Most of us would like to skip lunch and go home a half-hour early, but management won’t let us do it. So, instead we sit in our trucks with the engines running for half an hour to run the heat and keep warm. So now you know where your rate increases come from.” — Brook Park
I doubt this person is a letter carrier at all. This person is someone who observes a letter carrier sit in his truck every day for half an hour with the engine running and gets mad about it, and wants to tie it to the price of stamps. The letter carriers have a union if they really want to fight for optional lunch.
“My face always lights up when I hear my grandchildren sing the popular nursery rhyme, ‘The itsy bitsy spider,’ especially since I have taught my children and grandchildren to respect all life forms, to be gentle and kind, and to remember that all living beings, including us, are sharing the same web of life and that when one being is hurt, other beings are affected. When there is so much destruction and cruelty in the world, Regina Brett discusses gory versions of how to kill spiders in graphic detail, not only in a past article, but again in one published on Nov. 15, 2007. Very sad!” — Cleveland
You think what she does to spiders is bad, you should see what she does to cell phones. The woman is ruthless. We can look forward to a whole series of columns about the things that Regina Brett smashes to pass her days.
“My moan is in regards to the ‘Patch Mobiles.’ Does anyone remember them? They were the street repair machines that made temporary repairs that were better, and stronger than the original material. We, of the city of Cleveland, paid for them, yet, our cars are being ruined by the horrible streets. I wish someone would use their brains and get things going in the direction we need.” — Cleveland
I hear "Patch Mobile" and I picture an ice cream truck that rides around the neighborhoods passing out transdermal patches.
“I am tired of health care. It puts a burden on family and employer. Everyone should boycott the industry. Health care is responsible for the problems with Social Security; keeping people alive longer than ever expected just for profit. Why is everyone so afraid of dying? If we are primarily Christians, then we should have no issue with dying. Would you rather go to heaven when God pulls your number or sit in a nursing home soiling yourself while doctors get richer? ‘What would Jesus do?’” — No city
Executive summary: let's boycott the system and die.
As for what Jesus would do, what relevance does that have here? But since you asked, he'd hang from his cross, die, then rise again. Kinda like Dennis Kucinich. But that isn't the basis for a health care plan.
“Since OPEC likes to gouge us for oil, the next time one of those sheiks comes over to the Cleveland Clinic for surgery, tell them the bill just got jacked up by 1,000 percent.” — Streetsboro
Maybe that already happened and the higher oil prices are the result? Whatev. The sheik can go elsewhere for his surgery -- are you going to stop using oil?
Let’s give advertisers a real running shot at Christmas and move Thanksgiving to the 5th of July and see how long it will really, really last.” — Strongsville
HEY, I ALREADY THOUGHT OF THAT. Well, something like that.
“For those who can’t afford cable, being a Cavs’ fan is tough, since three quarters of the games are on cable. Give us a break.” — North Royalton
The Cavs are in it for the money. If you can't even afford cable, they have no use for you.
