Written on Romney releases 2011 tax returns; paid $1.9 million, 14.1% rate:

Paradise,

Please balance your comments regarding what we do not know about Romney to what we do not know about the Obamas. There is a great deal more to dig up, that is being hidden, by the Obamas, that we should all be aware of:

1. Who paid for his tuitions to very expensive universities?
2. What was written by him during his college career?
3. What was written by Michelle, who sleeps beside him at night?
4. Who and why was he able to buy an expensive house on a community organizers meager earnings. How did he manage the loan for that house, what was to be the payback for that loan?

The reason you can pick on Romney and comment about his history is because it is known and for the most part open to discussion.

We know very little about Obama except for the characters he hung with for many years. Why has that all been taboo for the media to talk about?

Written on Polls show Obama moving ahead of Romney in most competitive states:

In the White House I would like the candidate who is best for America first, and for me and my family, personally, second. Republican or Democrat.

#1 Huntsman would have been fine.
#2 The problem is that there is nobody out there that I would, actually choose as perfect, but as far as what we have to select from, I think that Romney is a better candidate than our current, can't say his name in order to respect your wishes, commander in chief.

To be honest, I have a brain and are able to think for myself. I never vote strictly party line no matter what party unless I feel those candidates warrant my vote.

BTW you asked me 4 questions not 2. :-)

Written on Polls show Obama moving ahead of Romney in most competitive states:

And as also posted earlier if Obama is elected we will all be losers, especially our grandchildren who will have to pay the trillions of dollars this present administration has built up in spite of their promises.

Maybe we should have all of our children sing the praises of our great Obama in school rather than pledging the U.S. flag. You know the one that Michelle said "all this for a blasted flag" (Michelle's comment was taped several months ago and the singing was shortly after Obama was elected.)

I never said that Obama would not win the next election so you telling me the contrary means nothing. Time will tell if this will happen.

I have only said that the results of the vast majority of his promises have been unfulfilled.

I will always pick a leader who shows respect for this country from day one and not just to convince the "Insane" ones that it will be better next time.

Written on Letter to the Editor: I refuse to believe that we are beyond hope:

Rolo,

I am sure you see that the load of Democrat we receive is constant and relentless. If they really felt positive about his actions they would not have to put others down for questioning what we, absolutely, have a right to question and comment about.

Yet we rarely hear about anything positive which their Savior has accomplished that is positive other than that Bin Laden is dead and GM lives. Two events in a forest of failure makes not a true leader. Oh I forgot Obama never rode with a dog securely caged to the top of his car!

Would any of these supporters go to a doctor who has had such a terrible cure rate then why do they believe it should be any different for the leader of the free world. Most of the women supporters would not even go to a hairdresser who did not give them the properly coloring/hair styling that they asked for. Just give him a second chance to do what? Just fail again.

Doctors bury their failures, Obama is burying this country under a mountain of debt, disrespect from other nations, and unfulfilled promises.

Written on Letter to the Editor: Marco Island waterfront homeowners to bear increased costs for Seawall replacement:

There is no doubt in my that we on Marco are being taken for a ride when it comes to what we have to pay for sea walls.

There are numerous other areas around Florida that pay far less than what the rip off artists charge us here. I have heard that in some areas the costs is about 40% of what our lack of true competition contractors are getting away with here.

I heard someone say to me that he was quoted $30,000 to replace an 80 foot sea wall. In other areas of Florida the quote is less than $15,000 for the same length wall.

Are our contractors using silver coated rebar or just coating their pockets with the highest amount they can charge and get away with?

We need to open this up to true competition and allow other sea wall contractors access this honey hole that local contractors presently have.

Can you please come up with something original though, I have already declared my happiness of living in such a beautiful place as Marco where there are fewer than 17% Democratic voters. It seems to me that YOU are the one that is out of touch and out of place.

1Paradise, I tell you facts and you show me a fantasy video. Is that all you have to come up with?

So far you have called me a liar, mostly dead during the next presidential term and show me a children's fantasy video.

Thank your for the personal attacks. I do appreciate you showing your true self.

Written on Romney releases 2011 tax returns; paid $1.9 million, 14.1% rate:

Paradise, you wish to know the truth about Romney and you know nothing about the Obama. Who checked him out before he so quickly came on the scene with his wife who "for the first time in her adult life she respected America" when her unknown husband was nominated for the office he now is making a mess of.

That alone was enough to see the writing on the wall that those idiots in the video above missed or could not care about.

No, let apologize to the Islamics for what some fool film maker made and not be totally bothered by them killing our ambassador and three others. That is what we should be worried about not what Romney may do with his properly presented, by law, tax returns.

Maybe when the Brotherhood chops off the head or publically sodomizes someone you know you will get your priorities in order.

Written on Romney releases 2011 tax returns; paid $1.9 million, 14.1% rate:

Paradise, I can not get over how smart you are regarding what Romney may do in the future. Usually when people are so sure what some else will do they themselves have done it themselves.

Since you know so much about the future why are you not so stinking rich that you do not have to worry about your 91 year old mother who is on welfare and take care of her yourself?

You must also be an accountant who seems to "know" all of the tricks on avoiding taxes under the law.

You ademently requested Romney's returns in other posts. Look at his returns again. He gave 30% to charity which he can not get back, not like our V.P. who gave less than 1%.

Where are the OBAMA's college transcripts, their writings, who they associated themselves with at that time. I am more worried about that then what someone else may do in the future. That is far more important to America than what Romney may do with his tax returns later on.

We know Obama is a Socialist, has been a Socialist and MAY, notice I say MAY, be a Socialist for the rest of his life.

Written on Romney: Nearly half 'believe they are victims' :

in response to 26yearsonmarco:

The problem is, the people on this video are becoming a majority in our Country, and have no clue what another 4 years of Obama will do.

Obama and his socialist sidekicks are playing these people, and if reelected, will do nothing for them.

s----- is as s----- does.

Notice the constant reference to FOX, but, recently, I have been noticing quite a few former Obama supporters on MSNBC being presented who are also saying that Obama is just plain not what this country needs and just does not have what it takes to be a successful president. I find this to be very interesting, especially from MSNBC.

Yes, I know it was my fault! Thanks for the Liberal Democratic blame someone else excuse.

"Insanity.... doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome" Like in it will be better next time. Food Stamps Anyone?

What happened to the reported $150,000 to keep Rev. Wrights mouth shut. You know the same guy that Obama never heard speaking about his hate/disgust of America, Whites and Jews during twenty years of attending his services?

Yes my dear 1Paradise, you are one of those people and as the article above says you fall into Einstein's catagory of INSANITY.

Written on Romney: Nearly half 'believe they are victims' :

1PARADISELOST,

What does anything you say or imagine have to do with all of Obama's failures? HE IS A FAILURE! Why give him another chance. Keep on hoping for better from him.

BTW what does my life expetency or anybody else's have to do with any of these comments?

Your persistancy on bringing in family relations tells me that yours is most likely miserable and trying to project that on to others.

So sad that you have accepted failure as something good for this country.

Written on Romney: Nearly half 'believe they are victims' :

1Paradiselost,

You asked the question I will give you the answer: According to Obamas 2008 campaign he called for Change: Change to what? More debt, more food stamps, more people actually out of work, more people looking for work, more denial that there are Islamic terrorists in the world, less respect for America etc.

When you voted for Obama in 2008 you knew NOTHING about him, for the most part you still know NOTHING about him except for his failures above. What was he a Community Organizer in a corrupt City? His wife did not respect America, in her adult life until he was nominated for president. He stood with his hands on his privates when other pledged the American flag and refused to wear a flag until he was forced to.

You are proud of that well I am not and will never be.

Make all the comebacks that you wish: Obama has been a complete failure and it is TIME FOR CHANGE. Change to a man who has more experience in his left index finger than all of Obama's cronies.

You got your tax returns you so demanded, you are not happy, now where are Obama's College Documents. Those are far more telling of a man's psyche then the tax return which showed that Romney in fact paid more in taxes then he legally had to, along with 30% to charity and those are now available to all to see. Obama is the WORST president this country has had in the last 50 years and that includes the two faced Jimmy Carter.

Yes Change is now necessary more than ever!

Written on Romney: Nearly half 'believe they are victims' :

For those who were concerned about Romney's Tax Returns, well I guess he was able to produce them a lot faster than Obama was his birth-certificate, college records, thesis etc.

http://firstread.nbcnews.com/_news/20....

And to top it off he contributed 3 million to charity as compared to what was contributed by either Obama or Biden's miniscule $1500.00

Written on Letter to the Editor: The making of a good candidate - Part II:

Another issue: Why is it that we have councilors who have not or have recently not paid their fair share of city taxes still being allowed to continue to sit on council?

My first thought is that there should be a clause in our City Charter to somehow disallow such behavior OR if this should be the case than that councilor should NOT receive their stipend from the city until that councilor's taxes are properly paid up. Thoughts?

Written on Letter to the Editor: The making of a good candidate - Part II:

"As I said before, we should be concerned when candidates make statements without due diligence. We should be even more concerned when they do research and completely misunderstand or misinform what they find."

The above being said by J. Arceri. Where were you when your earlier puppets outright lied to the city while sitting at council meetings or running for the council seat? How disingenuous can you be and have to nerve to call someone who is campaigning against your puppets as being misinformed when questioning previous lies.

Written on Letter to the Editor: The making of a good candidate - Part II:

Very well said MarcoIslandflea,

The honest citizens of Marco have to know truth to what has been going on behind their backs and vote in people of integrity, honesty and those who listen to the wants of the citizens.

Tucker's name on city hall was done in a sneaky way and must be re-thought with citizen input. It is repulsive to many because it honors a man who lied to the citizens regarding a dangerouse health issue and who showed contempt to citizens who questioned him regarding it. City Hall is not a place to honor such a person.

You are right, we are great parents, which, once again, has nothing to do with the topic at hand.

Yes, 26years, I do agree Welfare should be those who truly need it not the generation producing freeloaders who will vote democratic in order to perpetuate their handouts.

Thank you for substantiating what I posted above. Maybe 1Paradiselost could learn something from it.

Please accept my sincere apology for correcting the above. What you are describing above serves the purpose of getting rid of waste......The individual, presently, in the White House only creates additional waste.

Oh, I also forgot, where are the fathers of these out of wedlock moms who collect welfare. They too are collecting welfare for themselves and OF COURSE voting for OBAMA! How nice that is. Bringing up another generation of free loaders to vote Democratic.

Mahiman,

Somehow the Dumpocratic platform has made it a sin to be productive and successful and at the same time honoring punks, welfare cheats and socialists. What a bunch of losers.

Written on Romney: Nearly half 'believe they are victims' :

Since you said so I am happy that you think you are correct in your own mind.

The 47% you asked for me to show had nothing to do with Romney's statement they had to do with the Trillion Dollar Welfare situation. Once again, typical Democrat rotort change the subject and justify in your own words.

I suggest you check and verify your statement regarding the $60,000 for a family of 5. It is much higher in several Notheastern states. $1400 per month per child in at least one.

Nothing more to say, since your mind is made up.

Written on Romney: Nearly half 'believe they are victims' :

Social Security is not like Welfare, it was paid for thru our own taxes so lets stop the manuipulating the facts and admit you were wrong by say my figures came from OZ.

What Romney paid is far more than you, me or the majority of the 47% paid in total.

And I will not vote on the same side as those who see America as a free handout to make more babies in order to collect more than $60,000 a year in Welfare payments for a family of 5 when they can not decide who the father was for their offspring.

1Paradiselost,

Maybe before you comment try this site on for size. I may in fact be short on my numbers when all that is included in our Welfare State is added up.

Written on Romney: Nearly half 'believe they are victims' :

For food and education is what the welfare system is about, but not to keep people on it from generation to generation. Come on, there is no logical reason for that. Nearly One Trillion Dollars a year for today's welfare. How much of that is going for 2nd or 3rd generation welfare recipients. The point is that these are the people who are voting for Obama not the ones who are trying hard to make something out of themselves.

Written on Romney: Nearly half 'believe they are victims' :

Since when was it written that the American way of life is collect 7 to 8 thousand dollars a month for several babies had out of wedlock, from different fathers, live in a paid for apartment, receive food stamps, which to buy beer and cigarettes with etc. These are many of the people Romney is talking about.

There are also many people who have fallen on hard times and I feel horrible for them, but many of those who will vote for Obama have made the above their way of life. Very sad but true.

Written on Romney: Nearly half 'believe they are victims' :

The whole sentence was "Romney said his role "is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

The fact is that there are 47% of the population that pay LITTLE TO NO TAXES and
these are the people he is talking about.

Lauralbi1,
Do you know what the name Ed Issler means to people on these blogs? It means nothing more than "Charlie McCarthy" for John Arceri the Master Puppeteer.

Written on Letter to the Editor: The making of a good candidate - Part II:

John Arceri are you now fearing that the present candidates and public have got your number? What about the lies connected to the STRP, the divide and conquer tactics used by both your puppets and Moss when it came to pushing the STRP, the unethical bullet voting used by one of your puppets? Does none of this matter? Think again, your days are numbered as Master Puppeteer and it about time for true transparency when it come to our city council.

Written on Guest Commentary: The making of a good candidate :

To the Puppeteer John Arceri,

It is common knowledge on this island that you have been pulling strings for the last several years regarding many council members.

It appears now that there is a candidate or more whose strings can not be pulled by your personal likings, that candidate is not up to your "standards". It would be nice if our councilors were able to "think for themselves", LISTEN TO tHE WANTS OF THE CITIZENS and not be part of a group who have lied, cost tax payers unnecessary additonal money, placed the citizen's of this island health in jeopardy by ignoring health related asbestos issues and jeopardizing the waterways with sewer construction etc.

It would also be nice to have all our councilors pay their city taxes in full, like the rest of us.

Need I say more?

Maybe we can have an election that is fair without the contrived voting methods your candidates have used in the past. Bullet voting may be legal but it is, in my opinion, unethical.

It is "we the people" of Marco Island not those whose strings are pulled by and ex-city councilor who wants to be be Marco's Master Puppeteer for Life.

Ocram,

Correct and well stated.

The makers will, handily, defeat the takers in this next election and the polls are showing just that.

Romney will be making up for all the misteps of Obama but will be man enough not to use the "blame the other guy" excuse that our president has persistantly done.

I have lived on Marco Island for 12 years. Never have I considered it a place of unfriendly people.

Marco826, you are correct. Some people never have something nice to say about others because their own lives are in some sort of disaray. It makes them feel good when they put down others that are more than likely better off or happier than they are. That is what some call the darker side of human nature, I suppose.

Ocram, Why don't you give up on talking logic to Klaus. He does not have the desire to listen and learn by it. I too, thought that about that slogan in the same way. It is something that would appear on bus stop bathroom wall written by a 15 year old and definitly not the Vice President of the U.S. Maybe someone could convince Klaus to place it on a sign which he could proudly dislplay on the streets of Afghanistan.

Just feel sorry for him, and don't waste your time.

Written on History lesson: MICMS 8th graders tour Holocaust Museum’s Nazi boxcar:

Let me get another fact straight. Those poor souls, but honorable men, did not fight in WWII to give the "innocent" Germans their freedom. They fought in WWII to kill as many of those followers of Hitler as they could and help protect the rest of the world from Naziism. You may try to re-write history but those are the facts. "Fought for German's Freedom" what a joke. Tell that to the 50 million people who died because of what Germany was attempting to do. They wanted to take over the world or did you miss that bit of historical fact.

Klaus, Klabautermann or whatever you wish to call yourself this month.
