Panga Boat Bust 9/6

Weekly Poll
Should police be allowed to use surplus military equipment?

Cheap or free gear for local police? Sounds good to me.
No. Police are meant to serve the people, not to threaten them.
If they use it properly I don’t see any reason why not, but I don’t feel comfortable seeing cops with assault rifles.
Nothing says democracy like a bayonet to the butt.

By his own words, Obama is a failure of a president

Richard Neufeld - Grover Beach

As a senator, Obama voted no on raising the debt ceiling stating raising the debt ceiling is a failure of leadership by the president. As president, Obama wants exclusive rights to raise the debt ceiling.

As a presidential candidate, Obama stated the $400 billion deficit and $4 trillion increase in the debt by Bush was not only “irresponsible” but “un-American” as well. As president, Obama has had four years of $1.2 trillion deficits and has increased the debt by about $6 trillion.

Never have we had a more hypocritical and divisive president. In his own words, Obama has proven he is a failure as a president to lead and is irresponsible and un-American.
