Certainly everyone’s heart has to go out to the people suffering from last week’s floods in Louisiana.

The devastation is truly stunning, and I hope you’ll join my family and other people of good will in sending donations to any one of the many worthy charities providing relief to the unfortunate folks in the area. After all, this is the sort of occasion which should bring all Americans together, right?

300 rounds of golf in 8 years not to mention more vacations to Hawaii than you can count. When does Obama ever work?

Summary-Obama good. GWB still bad. Dishonorable mention to Mitt Romney. In other words, different issue, same old carp.

skylinefirepest simply makes up stuff to support her inarticulate rage at anything that makes good sense despite the mountain of facts proving over and over that everything skylinefirepest writes is laughably wrong.

What are the facts that you allude to?

Frank Staples

Where's your mountain of facts old man?? And when are you going to take me up on my offer...or are you going to state the truth and admit that you lied???

Frank Staples

Dusty road...is there any Republican that you could like? It's attitudes like yours that keep us from compromising on anything. It's carp like the liar in chief putting forth a man for the Supreme Court that is an avowed 2nd Amendment hater and should therefore have never been submitted as a Supreme!! It's stuff like this, where trump went and the liar in chief went golfing, that keeps the liberals in something to write about...you know, on those days when hillary is still not being charged and there's only the hatred of trump that excites you. You're a pitiful man, dustie road, even for a rabid liberal.
