    It is not surprising that Ms. Bobin cannot make an accurate statement about my comments. Except fot the very occasional use of vulgarites my posts are civil.
    Contrary to Ms. Bobin, I strive to get along with everyone here. In other words, she has no room to talk.[censored][beam]

    Ms. Bobin,

    You aren't any different than the rest of us. You are clearly biased. However, I would never say Ms. Neely is always wrong. Because that is unfair on her part.
    Evidently you don't think it's unfair on Joe's part to say he is always wrong.

    Clinton's Speech Was Meant to Undermine Obama!!

    9/10/12

    Democrats are praising Bill Clinton's speech as if it was the best thing for Obama. It was NOT.

    He talked about the need to work with Republicans. Bill Clinton worked with Republicans. Obama did not. Americans will make that distinction.

    He talked about how there were more jobs created by Democratic presidents since the 1960s than Republican presidents. Umm. Jimmy Carter was a failure and so is Obama. He can't praise Obama for the past three years so he includes himself in a 50 year time window, LOL. That is silly on its face.

    Paul Ryan:

    “What’s happened over the past four years was not a Bill Clinton Democrat.”

    “Bill Clinton gave us welfare reform, Bill Clinton worked with Republicans to cut spending and to get a good budget agreement in place. Bill Clinton’s commission gave us Medicare reform that we are proposing right now. We don’t have a Bill Clinton Democrat. We have someone who went far to the left so it’s a different kind of approach or philosophy of the role and goal of government.”

    Ms Bobin stated...What? I thought Obama had already turned this country socialist...

    Thanks for treating us to you Tina Fey impression... liberal humor that is not funny.

    Obama"not"care was a large jump forward and is a step to a national single payer system. Obama needs four more years as he already gave himself a grade of incomplete... he understands that he needs more time to seal the deal... so of course you pretend stupidity... just like Tina Fey.

    Clearly, Ms Bobin treats this issue as a joke. Actually expected considering her childish behavior.

    That exchange rate change would suggest that the American economy is strengthening relative to Thailand. How could that be possible with a Obama in the White House?

    "If Obama is elected and our society evolves in a way socialist enjoy, I hope everyone has plans."

    What? I thought Obama had already turned this country socialist. "Fundamentally transformed" I believe is the common expression used.

    Well, If Obama wins and especially if we get the House and retain the Senate what will happen is Democrats will complete the job of fixing this Conservative republican induced financial disaster. If enough of people with your insane economic and political beliefs leave so much the better.

    Darrell, the exchange rates on the baht look good.

    Mr Chang finally makes a point of reality... welcome to the real world...

    and yes, I make many plans that give me options to improve my situation. Does'nt everyone! If Obama is elected and our society evolves in a way socialist enjoy, I hope everyone has plans.

    Mr Kinderman stated...I applaud the Lodi News-Sentinel for taking advantage of whatever it takes to keep this newspaper alive...

    Well said and so true... LNS even goes as far as providing this forum for Twilight Zone thinkers such as Mr Chang and Schmidt all the way to the ultra bizarre delusions and conclusions of Ms Bobin. Imagine anyone thinking Obama's fate is in the bag with so much time in such a close election.

    You would think if these people are acceptable that surely middle of the road moderates like Mr Joe Guzzardi would be welcome.

    Jerome, the easily predicted outcome of this fall’s election…

    Is it surprising that Mr. Docktor cannot make a comment without using vulgarities - nevermind that he has had the presence of mind to self-censor.

    As for "all opinions should be welcomed," I have no problem with that. But when a columnist deliberately twists the FACTS and outright LIES to his audience in order to inflame with regard to a particular topic, comments should be made.

    I have fact-checked Guzzardi and found his "opinion" to be faulty too many times to count.

    I can see why you need to take a dose of Prilosec when you read Ms. Neely's columns. Apparently, you cannot stomach the truth - especially when it is in direct contradiction to your preconceived "opinions."

     
  • Joanne Bobin posted at 10:56 am on Mon, Sep 10, 2012.

    No need. Guzzardi reads the comments in this forum. Email him yourself if you don't believe me.

    Ms. Bobin,

    Please spare us you're constant drama and forward your grievances directly to Joe's email.

    John stated...Still others just see the "steamer" left by a passing canine.

    Actually, more appropriate considering who the target of the comment is, would be feline, not canine....

    Kind of like a drunk telling someone not to drink too much. Irony at its finest.

    Pittsburgh Pennsylvania or Lodi, California - what difference does it make? With the advances in technology that have seemingly reduced the miles between us to just a few keystrokes on a computer, pad, or phone, as long as someone has something to write about that is of interest to its readers, I applaud the Lodi News-Sentinel for taking advantage of whatever it takes to keep this newspaper alive. While I don’t always agree with Mr. Guzzardi, I will always welcome his insight; just as I don’t complain about Ms. Neely’s overtly skewed view of the political world, the latter being more responsible for my intake of Prilosec than the former. In short, this is an Op/Ed page – ALL opinions should be welcomed.

    Mr. Kindseth: I see many beautiful roses - none, however, are contained within Joe Guzzardi's columns that are filled with twisted facts and efforts to inflame readers such as yourself who are only concerned with "someone" taking "something" away from you. I understand from your buddy that you are a deeply religious Christian person.

    Start acting like one.

    Some people look at a beautiful rose bush and see the flowers, others only see the thorns. Still others just see the "steamer" left by a passing canine.

    "But executives who remain committed to publishing a quality newspaper like the News-Sentinel survive by becoming more inventive which, in turn, benefits its readers."

    This has to be one of the few honest statements Joe Guzzardi has ever made. The LNS "survives" in part due to Guzzardi's columns in which he "invents" the facts that he believes will promote the furtherance of his ideology, which in turn "benefit the readers" by filling their heads with misleading and nonfactual information.

    Three cheers to the LNS for printing this "local" columnist.

    Ooooh- my mistake - that's actually Pittsburgh, PENNSYLVANIA, not Pittsburg, California.
