Sound Off: Your comments 3/27/09

Editor's Note: After Friday night’s AC360° from El Paso, there was a wide variety of comments. Many of you brought up the issue of legalizing marijuana; some wanted Anderson to remind everyone that not all Mexico is bad and many of you felt that President Obama is spending too much without securing jobs in the US. What do you have to say?

President Obama and our government are spending too much money. Massive spending for war; Massive spending for bailouts to Wall St., banks and car industries. We have massive greed and fraud. We have massive job loss. The economy may look better now but, what happens when the unemployment runs out? Americans need secure jobs. We are losing jobs every day. All of this is going to affect our economy in a bad way.

You and your friends would say anything to try to convince the viewers that Nobama is doing a Great Job, while the truth is he is running our country into the ground. We have had 1500 plus people lose their jobs in the last week in central Illinois alone, more business taking bankruptcy, gas prices going back up. But you still try to paint this rosy picture of Nobama performing miracles already. You might be fooling some of the stupid people in this country who voted for him, but it will be just a matter of time before the majority of the people in this country see him for the inexperienced person he is running our great country.

My husband and I just spend the past two months in Mexico, despite the pleading of our mothers. What we found, outside of the border states, which we kept clear of, was amazing and safe. I felt safer in most Mexican towns than I felt in Lansing, Mi. We understand the border is VERY dangerous but the majority of Mexico is safe.

    I just wanted to say hello to everyone at CNN. I know you've slipped to third in the ratings behind your two competitors. It just shows the divide we have in this country. I'm pro Obama and do believe he's doing his best to keep our heads above water. Yahoo this morning had articles about Bill O'Reilly, and the race to see who's number one. Some of the comments about CNN were pretty bad. I just wanted to let you know you have loyal listeners out there who believe you're telling the story in a more impartial way than your competitors. A couple of people had real problems with Rich Sanchez (sp). I for one think his use of the internet and his telling the stories no one else would is refreshing. I'm also a Bill O'Reilly fan (sorry if I'm misspelling these). Once again here is a man that believes what he says and get on everyone Dem. or Rep. and watches out for our rights. Now I'm disabled and I've watched all three. I'm also a liberal. But I like to be told straight ahead what's happening. CNN does that better than anyone. So stay the steady course. Watch out for the coming revolution. You may think I'm nuts but have you been listening to the radio talk shows. Somebody should read Grapes of Wrath. Be well you all and keep the faith. Leo

    There were places in Vietnam that were safe also--it is all in how one precieves "safe." The chance of being struck by lighting is one in 6 million--but try to convince the individual who got struck that the odds were against it--nothing in life is "totally safe."

    What the last comment says, makes sense. Violence and drugs have in all big city in any urban center.

    We have that take care not to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
