I want to thank all of you who have helped get 'Big Mouth' Santa Klaus down to his one word vocabulary. Gone are the days of needless incomprehensible posts and psycotic Obamma ramblings.

Obama has lied to us so much and so often he has zero credibility left with reasonable Americans. . .

Obama broke his promise to cut spending. (instead he has added over $5 trillion to our debt in just 3.5 years, which is much more than Bush added in 8 years)

Obama broke his promise to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term.

Obama broke his promise to "Uphold the Laws of This Land”.

Obama broke his promise that obamacare would not be a tax.

Obama broke his promise to lessen our dependency on Middle East oil by getting more oil from our neighbors.

Obama broke his promise for a new era of bipartisan cooperation in all matters.

Obama broke his promise to not force Americans to buy health insurance.

Obama broke his promise that Obamacare will reduce healthcare costs.

Obama broke his promise that 90% of the stimulus jobs created would be in the private sector.

Obama broke his promise that that if you like their current health plan you can keep it.

Obama broke his promise to put all bills on the White House web site for five days before signing them.

Obama broke his promise to have the congressional health care negotiations broadcast live on C-SPAN.

Obama broke his promise to end earmarks.

Obama broke his promise to keep unemployment from rising above 8 percent.

Obama broke his promise to close the detention center at Guantanamo in the first year.

Obama broke his promise to make peace with direct, no precondition talks with America 's most hate-filled enemies during his first year in office, ushering in a new era of global cooperation.

Obama broke his promise to never allow Iran the ability to create nuclear weapons.

Obama broke his promise to end the hiring of former lobbyists into high White House jobs.

Obama broke his promise to end no-compete contracts with the government.

Obama broke his promise to disclose the names of all attendees at closed White House meetings.

Panola60 you are spot on.

Obama has not lived up to any of his promises. His campaign promises reminded me of when I was in 5th grade and one of the guys running for school president promised to put coke in the drinking fountains. We fell for it and he won by a landslide. Unfortunately, most of Obamas supporters are too much like us 5th graders were - only difference we learned.

Obama supports do not think for themselves or listen to facts. They want to be steered - they regurgitate the same rhetoric that has been spoon fed to them by mainstream media and never state facts that really mean anything. Instead they focus on how much Palin spent on an outfit or Romney's taxes because that is all they are capable of talking about. They don't know about anything else nor do they seem to have the capability to understand anything else.

If they really want to open their minds and think for themselves, they would listen to both sides and watch fox news once in a while. But they can't - they are too scared to hear about whats really going on in the world. Instead they keep their ears covered and their heads in the sand. Its very scary.

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

in response to panola60:

Obama's time as president has been the longest period of high unemployment since the great depression

6 million Americans added to Fed SS Disability Benefits under Obama

Far more Americans have signed on to SS Disability than have founds jobs under Obama

Median incomes have fallen 7.3% under Obama

The poverty rate climbed to 15.7% last year, highest since the 1960's

The Misery Index (combo of unemployment and inflation) has risen from 7.83 to 9.71 under Obama

Obama has added more than $5 trillion to the National Debt in just 3.5 years, which is much more than Bush added in 8 years

Food stamp spending is up 100% under Obama

Gas prices have gone up 100% under Obama

Food prices have gone up 25% under Obama

The recession was a result of the Mortgage Meltdown which was caused by democrats like Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, ACORN and their attorney Barack Obama that forced financial institutions to pass out mortgages like candy to folks without the means to pay back the loans.

Now we have elected a president that not only helped cause the original mess, but has made that mess much, much worse.

Sorry meant to respond to Panola60 not 1Paradiselost.
Panola60 speaks facts - 1paradiselost is truly lost.

Unfortunately, The problems we face today are there because...the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

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

in response to 1Paradiselost:

Romney produced only ONE year of tax returns today, 2011. According to his return, he could have taken another 3 million in deductions.

Romney and his accounts chose not to take those outstanding deductions. The current return shows a 14% tax rate.

But under federal law the Romney's have 3 years to amend those (2011) returns and take the extra deductions.

Buy doing so (And you know they will) The Romney's would have an effective rate well below the 14% he says he pays.

After he loses this election and then files the amended return, to get the other 2 million in deductions. The government will write him a $300,000.00 check from the IRS, Which is our money.

This is the reason why the PAST returns are so important.

Those returns can't be amended according to federal tax law because the 3 year rule has expired.

Is he one of the 47% he talks about? As Americans we ALL have the right to know the truth!

As employers check the backgrounds of potential employees. Don't we as Americans have the right to check out someone who is running for the job of president of the United States?

1Paradiselost: I second your points. You obviously are well read, you state factual points but the liberals do not want to hear that. Instead they focus on useless information and try to make something of it.

Unfortunately, The problems we face today are there because...the people who work
for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

Written on Water system violation notices in the mail – Monitoring lapse necessitates notification of Marco water consumers :

I dont trust our drinking water and never have. The system is so old and thats what needed to be fixed not the waste water system. Instead our drinking water treatment plant is old and produces water so bad that it eats through our water pipes in our homes - just think of what its doing to our bodies. I hate even using it to shower with and I never ever drink it, feed it to my pets or cook with it. And now that they have drained everyone dry to pay for the un necessary waste water treatment plant they can't now ask for money to fix what really needs to be fixed - our drinking water treatment plant. Small town politicians making really bad decisions for the community.

in response to Ocram:

Very interesting you deny knowing who Klabautermann is or was but yet you spelled his name with 2 ns when I used only one n. Sounds very much like "I did not have sex, with that woman" quoted by a Democratic President.

I guess personal denial and blaming others for your/their own screw ups is just part of the "real democratic" strategy and way of life.

Written on Judge: Florida worker drug testing unconstitutional POLL:

in response to Mayor_McCheese:

Oh, and I forgot one more thing genius, your use of her name with 3 question marks and associating it with Justice Sotomayor (whom you obviously don't like) suggests that you are not only ignorant of the precepts of the Constitution, but that you are also a bigot. I guess since she has a Hispanic name, she must be a liberal (which in your world must be a terrible thing). I wonder if Marco Rubio would approve . . .

There you liberals go again labeling anyone who disagrees with you a bigot or a racist or ..the newest one..a 'woman hater'. You people are so transparent, I said she may as well be Sotomeyer for her liberal stance to protect government union workers. Private companies can screen their employees as much as they want but yet again the coveted government employee get yet another 'free pass'. America is sick of carrying the tab of these over paid over protected govt' employees and frankly we're sick of idiot name calling liberals like yourself.

Written on Letter to the Editor: Watch for disinformation:

Mr. Aceri did you or did you not, fund, promote, produce, coordinate, choreograph, ... or have anything to do with the misinformation campaign that was waged last election against the Marco homeowners? Did you not divide the condo owner from the homeowner to successfully get your "slate of candidates" elected to ensure that the corrupt STRP project would succeed? Mr. Aceri do you deny dividing this island for your own political and financial gains?

Written on State sues three Marco Island property owners, alleges docks illegally built :

Someone should inform the state that the Marco homeowner has been bled dry by the city, we have no more dough.

Written on Letter to the Editor: Seeking info on attack:

I am so sorry to hear that the sun times did that. What is wrong with them. Why was the attacker so protected in the media and not your daughter. Its just unacceptable. I hope Nacho Mamas when informed fired the man immediately. And I also hope the police looked at him as a possible suspect with the other case.

I no longer feel this island is the safe place it used to be when our city officials are not informing its residents and when attackers get away with just a slap on the hand.

Again, so sorry for what your daughter and your family had to endure. I am sure it has changed your lives forever.

Written on Letter to the Editor: Seeking info on attack:

The suntimes reported on it. I think i will use them for my real Marco Island news from now on.

It is scary to learn this is the 2nd time this has happened. It probably has happened more and it is not be reported and the crimes seem to go unpunished. 6 weeks is a joke and I wish you would say which restaurant because the silence hurts all of us and gives the criminal more power. And his picture should be posted in the paper.

Written on Letter to the Editor: Seeking info on attack:

I guess I an not on the citys email alert system. Maybe they should send out letters to let residents know that there is one.

Written on Letter to the Editor: Seeking info on attack:

How is it we did not hear this in the paper or on the news? Maybe there were witness's that would come forth and islanders should be told about this so we can be on the alert. Shame on the Eagle and the city for not informing its citizens.
