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.

  • Letter: President's trade being swept under rug My question to all, why do we keep hearing after a number of months about the shootings in Colorado, Sandy Hook, etc., but yet the president illegally deals with terrorists, trades five for a believed deserter and now it is being swept under the rug?

  • Letter: New glass ceiling is $12 an hour All those libertarians, tea party, conservatives (dupes of the rich) are leading America's middle class and poor into poverty and depression.

  • Letter: Constitution, laws being trampled Nancy Pelosi said, "When it comes to protecting the children I'm a lioness!" Too bad that doesn't include the babies who are ripped from the womb. How ironic to hear the progressive liberals talk of compassion for illegals while killing our own.

  • Letter: Liberal says 'illegal' should be taboo Did you see where a well-known liberal wants to do away with the "I" word? 'I' as in "illegal."

  • NWS - HB0728 - World War 1 Local Bob Quinn 2 Editorial: WWI commemorated at 100th anniversary On April 2, 1917, President Woodrow Wilson asked Congress for a declaration of war against Germany. There was overwhelming support. Neutrality was no longer an option. The sinking by Germany of the British ocean liner, the Lusitania, further committed Americans to the cause. Madison County answered the call, too.

  • Viewpoint: Panhandlers give wrong impression of our city First of all, let me start off by saying that I have as much empathy and compassion for those less fortunate as the next person.

  • Editorial: City overzealous in calling for Chamberlain probe In the aftermath of The Herald Bulletin's recent news report that City Councilman Rodney Chamberlain had been cleared of criminal wrongdoing in relation to basketball league funds, one question stands out.

  • OPN - Mootry column mug [Duplicate] [Duplicate] Primus Mootry: The African-American community toward a new narrative African Americans are entirely unique in the annals of American history and, perhaps, the whole history of mankind. This uniqueness demands an African American agenda and, with it, a new narrative, or way of articulating that agenda.
