Viewpoint: No surprises expected during second term

Obama has been re-elected. And, now the price of gasoline is headed back up to $4 per gallon (and beyond). Obama has been re-elected. And every time I go to the grocery store, it costs me at least $100, even if I can carry them into the house in one trip.

Obama has been re-elected. And now all those evil, rich people are paying higher taxes. I guess if you have a job, you must be rich because every working man and woman in the USA had their tax rate raised by 2 percent on Jan. 1.

Obama has been re-elected. Now, every woman can have a choice. They can have a choice if they want an abortion, or not, after being raped. They just won’t have a choice if they want to be able to protect themselves from rape with a gun, or not. (But, then, they do have a choice; Uncle Joe tells them that a doubled-barreled 12-guage shotgun at home is all the protection they will ever need.)

Obama has been re-elected. Expect a crisis every six to 12 months. That’s Chicago politics. As Chicago mayor (and former Obama adviser) Rahm Emanuel has said, “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” That’s the way Obama’s first term was run, so expect four more years of the same.

Obama has been re-elected. Now, look for us to find our proper place in the international scene; not as a world leader, but as an equal; as just one of the group. We may lose a few more embassies and another ambassador or two, as we work out the rough spots, but I guess that’s the price of progress.

Obama has been re-elected. So, for all you people who didn’t really agree with him, but just couldn’t see yourselves voting for a rich, successful business man, because you didn’t think he could connect with you or understand your problems, at least now you know what you’re going to be getting for the next four years.

  • Viewpoint: Pray for an end to abortion pandemic There are few, if any, conditions of our day that have more impact on our lives than the shameful practice of abortion – a legalized form of murder. There are many who say that should not be spoken in polite society. There are others who buy into the fabrication that since abortion is legal, it must be a non-issue.

  • Viewpoint: Politicians creating instability in public schools

    I will begin this correspondence by stating I have known hundreds of educators from across the state of Indiana. There are a couple of fibers that commonly run through the character of most of these great people, educators truly care about kids, and they do not fear a fair and equitable evaluation.

  • Viewpoint: Resources are available to prevent child abuse The word "courage" is often associated with the fight against child abuse. Front line victim advocates have long recognized the need for courage in order to protect victims. Behind the scene advocates need courage to fight for funding and attention to the cause.

  • Viewpoint: Tree City USA distinction laughable I thoroughly enjoyed your April Fools' editorial announcing that the city of Anderson had received the Tree City USA distinction. Had I not realized it was a joke, I would have choked on my coffee. I was a little concerned that you did not announce to some of the less enlightened readers that it was an April Fools' joke.
