For five years the Republicans have done everything in their power to make this country and this administration fail even though most of the Republicans that caused this mess are still in Congress.
It seems that George Zimmerman does what he does because he loves the publicity that he gets. Unfortunately the media plays his game. He is one sick dude and deserves to be locked up for a couple of years!
Far more money is thrown away on corporate welfare and tax breaks for corporations than used for SNAP, welfare and other programs for the poor. And don't call these corporations "job creators." Are they creating many, many jobs in the Cayman Islands?

As we watch the news in the evenings, it becomes more evident to adults that the real threat for our children will not come from Iran, but from within. The division in color, wealth, religion and beliefs has grown immensely under this government, and there's no effort on their part to curtail it and no enforcement of existing laws to stop it.
Regarding the headline in the Friday, Nov. 15 paper that "Obama is going to let the insurance companies," I didn't think the president of this country had the right to mess with laws that have already been voted in.
