Speak Out for Sept. 18, 2014

Explain to me why Democrats were in love with and found the wealth of the Roosevelts and Kennedys a nonissue but are outraged regarding the wealth of Romney and Rauner. The latter two earned their fortunes, not inherited them, and have provided thousands of jobs …

Speak Out for Sept. 17, 2014

Thank you, C from Tinley Park: Being an active CPD, I’ve discovered “pulling over to the ‘right’ for sirens and lights” is a lesson of the past. I’ve had my sirens and emergency blue lights activated, headlights flashing, spotlights in car mirrors, and the motorists, …

Speak Out for Sept. 16, 2014

To the people of Burbank: If you really care about the flooding and power outage situation, I strongly urge you to take the time to vote. Don’t forget about the damage that has been done over and over again and what has not been done …

The Cubs are raising ticket prices next year. Amazing how people are willing to support a perennial loser. But a lot of visitors want to see Wrigley Field. Tourists have always been fascinated by ancient ruins. Ron in Orland Park To the writer who commented …

Speak Out for Sept. 14, 2014

President Obama still won’t do anything to secure our border. I don’t think he cares. Washington’s press releases tell of all the children entering. What they don’t tell us is that more than 85 percent of the males are between the ages of 13 and …

Speak Out for Sept. 12, 2014

Tom from Evergreen Park said students are sure to have “slanted liberal ‘clap trap’ ” beaten into their heads just by going to college. Why are we so afraid of people whose worldview differs from ours? That thought scares me more than college students being …

Speak Out for Sept. 11, 2014

Tom from Mokena wrote that some guy named Rauner gave millions of dollars to charity. Besides Rauner, his wife and his tax attorney, the guy from Mokena is the only other person alive who has seen governor-wannabe’s tax returns. Bruce will not let the voters …

Speak Out for Sept. 10, 2014

To Joe in Tinley who thinks it’s a bad thing Rauner is in a $140,000 wine club: Bruce Rauner is rich, and this is how rich people spend their money. You choose to live in Tinley Park and pay more in taxes as opposed to …

Speak Out for Sept. 9, 2014

I am of the opinion that former Bears coach Mike Ditka will do or say anything for some money. Rick from Evergreen Park I had a lot of enthusiasm for the arrival of Marc Trestman as the Bears new head coach. Since he arrived (in …

Speak Out for Sept. 8, 2014

Regarding how people send nudes (photos) through electrical devices thinking that no one else will see it: Well, I say that everyone can see it. There is at least one person other than the person you send it to that can see all the things …

Speak Out for Sept. 7, 2014

Before you put Thursday’s Southtown into the recycling bin, tear out Phil Kadner’s story about governor-wannabe Bruce Rauner’s $140,000 initiation fee to a wine club and Rich Miller’s equally brilliant piece on Rauner’s ludicrous campaign commercials. $500,000 spent this week alone to sell us his …

Speak Out for Sept. 5, 2014

To all those complaining about a Little League player being called a hero: The word hero has been both misused and overused for years. It is used to describe both sports teams and players (professional and amateur), regular acts of kindness and also people  doing …

Speak Out for Sept. 4, 2014

How dumb can anyone be to put nude photos of themselves into the electronic world these days and not expect the world to know? If anyone does not understand, all of these electronic toys you use are free to the world to monitor. In this …

Speak Out for Sept. 3, 2014

To the comment from Oak Lawn: Parades for losers? These young men won the United States Little League Championship. They are winners, not losers. I take exception with last week’s headline regarding the JRW team’s “hero” player being homeless. Hero? He didn’t play or win …

Speak Out for Sept. 2, 2014

Let’s have a big hand for our president, (Barack) Obama. He has finally drawn a line in the sand and we’re going to back it up for him. The entire U.S. No more messing around with us. We’re going to be just like Israel. John …
