"Come on you "farout right folks" admitted, "it's Obama's fault"! You guys are slipping,isn't this the norm for you to say?"

At least you didn't say it was Bush's fault. Who said there was no such thing as miracles?

"The politicians who make thousands and could pay for it and not even miss it coming out of their income."

If you took half of the payoff every state legislator, it would not be enough to pave a mile of highway.

Dottie worked at C.A. Reed when I did. I'll be nice and just say ignor her nonsense.

My only comment here, because I don't know everything I probably need to know to say more, is this; We already pay enough*****taxes and it's already crippling the middle class and poverty class citizens. At what point are we going to see relief? (The answer is never)

They are obviously part of the plot to destroy this country.-Farmer

Farmer, that is one very interesting sentence. IMO, thinking along these lines is being used by certain people on the extreme fringes of political "ideology". It would appear that pandering to peoples "lower base instincts"-hate, fear, prejudices, conspiracies, etc., is a very effective method. I guess that certain things never change. What a shame- Have a Safe & Happy night!!-Scott

eriklatranyi: " just look at the liberals in Oregon and Washington..due to the large number of hybrids and fuel efficient cars, they now want to mileage tax on top of the fuel taxes"

No I can't exactly find a "quote", but I'm very certain in the past you have criticized people who drive those silly Green cars ( in particular electric) for not paying their fair share of gas tax. Now you don't like Oregon when they do tax them for using the roads. Maybe we should ban all hybrid or alliterative fuel cars. They are obviously part of the plot to destroy this country.

. Why should my taxes be used to feed welfare when all they need to do is stop these people from breeding and breathing?-Garben78

Seems to be this area in a nutshell. You, and others of your political thinking actually wonder why level headed people view your thinking/screeching as hateful??? Really???-Scott

Zippie - My guess would be none because if we are using nearly 3 million gallons of gas a year to mow our lawns either our mowers or very inefficient or we are wasting an awful lot of gas mowing our lawns.

Zippie:

Not just lawn mowers, lawn tractors, weed eaters, tillers, generators, etc., etc. etc.

But, just look at the liberals in Oregon and Washington..due to the large number of hybrids and fuel efficient cars, they now want to mileage tax on top of the fuel taxes.

It is never enough money for them.

Liberals encourage us to increase fuel economy, save money, etc...then, liberals turn around and demand more taxes to make up for the savings people earned.

Proof, that liberals will never stop until they control all your money..but will give you back just what they approve as enough for what you "need".

How many MILLIONS of gas tax each year is gotten by the way of those buying gas to mow one's lawn?

CMReeder - Thanks for admitting you make stupid statements but I saw my statement as universal to both sides and not specifically directed at you. IMHO if we all had the chance to preview our comments, I would hope that many of us would realize how stupid the comment we are about to make really is. I know I would. So sorry you took it as "venom".

There now we should be friends because we both have admitted to posting some stupid things and I am certain we both will continue to in the future as well.

Well, Mr. Reeder did not deny that liberals are repeating their group hate that led to the holocaust.

Last time it was the Jews, this time it is anyone wealthy, conservative or Christian.

Way to go ScottyDogg showing your support for the crass stupid comments from your fellow right wingers about liberals and instead focus your venom for me and my stupid comment. Maybe the S-G should place a filter on your comments as well.

Sorry I meant well enough alone. Boy the Sun-Gazette ought to let you preview before you post like other site do. It would cut down on 1) The number of mistyped comments and 2) Some of the stupid comments.

Okay, number 2 would work only if those making the comments realized how stupid they were to begin with.

CMReeder I agreed with your first post on this subject but you could not let well enough only and had to go make yet another stupid statement:

"I have an idea why not have the anti government group grab a shovel and go fix all the roads. They only trust themselves and no one else."

Better idea would be to let those abled body folks living on the welfare dime go and do this work.

We point to specific people, like Soros, while liberals point at the 1%.

Just like liberals in the 1930s blamed all Jews for the bad economy, liberals today blame all the wealthy.

Liberal group hate on display!!!

"Why do the people (average, low, middle and fixed income) have to pay it?"

It might be because they are the ones who use the roads. Who else is going to pay for it? But the problem isn't who is paying, it is how much they're paying. There's also the problem that too much government money is wasted. I don't think the government needs more money, I believe they need better management of the money they already have.
