Jerry Aripez's comment here

Jerry Aripez's comment here is what intolerance looks like people! Now be sure to read his other negative comments below. It's full of guessing and references to the Washington Post. The same "newspaper" that changed two articles after they were posted online when someone discovered the articles weren't favorable to President Obama. I review my facts with the original Washington Post article, before they revised it.

White House is to Blame

Once again the news is slanted to the left. The Obama white house is the one who created the sequester hoping the right would cave and pass a bill to his liking. They didn't, so now Obama is saying this is the right's fault. Do your research people and stop listening to the far left radicals.

And then think about this: How much money was spent on Obama's pet projects such as Solyndra? What happened to all that taxpayer money they received? Why is the IRS head still collecting her salary? Why is Obama going to Africa when it's going to cost us taxpayers $100,000,000.00? Why is the Obama administration spending billions collecting data from each and every American Citizen? Why are we still sending billions to countries who hate America? The list goes on and will continue as long as Obama is in office.

I know someone is going to call me a right-wing nut, but they would be wrong. I am a middle of the road independent. I vote for the one who proves to me they are the best choice regardless of party affiliation. When I hear one side bashing the other, I take the time to find out more before making my decision. More people should do the same.

I moved away from Lewiston

I moved away from Lewiston for economic reasons years ago, but have never stopped loving my home town! I visit home as often as I can, and keep up with everything by reading the Lewiston Sun Journal every day.

What many people don't see is the amazing architecture all around the city. Very few places I have been have so many Victorian styled homes and buildings. People want new and exciting, but when that's all there is, it soon becomes boring and mundane.

Take pride in the many wonderful things in Lewiston and enjoy them for us unfortunate people who moved away but never really left...



Leaning Left

The story would be better suited to the American people if the reporter didn't slant the story in Obama's favor. This story would fit in much better along with the slanted stories in the Huffington Post.

People of Maine used to believe in standing on their own two feet, but voting for Obama shows that the culture has definitely changed.

Obama will continue to bring more government dependence, Romney will bring more prosperity. You decided.

Marriage isn't a contest,

Marriage isn't a contest, it's a commitment. So when the majority of straight people in our lives divorce, it takes away from the argument that gays shouldn't marry. My partner and I celebrated 17 years on September 8th. I can't say the rest for our closest relatives.

All three of my siblings divorced. 2 years, 14 years, and 16 years. My parents divorced at 14 years. Three out of four of my partner Kevin's siblings divorced. 4 years & 10 years, 3 years, and 11 years. His parents divorced at 4 years.

PS: Jesus was all about love, but the HATE spewed by people calling themselves Christians is beyond belief. Thank you...

Getting more than they deserve

These prisoners do not need air conditioning, three meals a day, television, cigarettes, etc... They need to spend their time contemplating how they will straighten out their lives so they don't return.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio has the right idea. He is saving Maricopa County money and has lowered the number of returns back to his jail!!!

Paying attention

The story is connected to Lewiston because "Ryan’s son Jesse, 10, of Lewiston".

WOW Jimi!!!

WOW Jimi... So simple, but yet so profound! It seems the sheep have lost their shepherd. Maybe that would account for the loss of parishioners over the years?

I believe in God, but I do not believe in organized religion misinterpreting the Bible for their own agenda.

All sins are equal in God's eyes, but some seem to believe that homosexual sin is so much worse than the other "abominations" that so many people commit daily. I love it when an obese person tells me I am going to hell for being gay, yet completely overlooks what the Bible says about obesity.
