On the Right Side: Liberals, leftist media spoon-feed convenient info


All I'm asking is to please not let the mainstream media and liberals spoon-feed you only the information they want you to read or hear. Make your own opinion after you have given both sides a fair chance.

There are two important Tea Party rallies coming up that I hope you can attend. The first one is in Norwich on Thursday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. It will be at the East Side Park across from the Chenango County Courthouse. Call Gilda Ward at 764-8303 or 244-5528 if you need more details.

Another good one will be held Saturday, April 24, from 1 to 4 p.m. at River Valley Ford, which is located halfway between Oneonta and Otego on Route 7. Contact Tim Shorer at 435-1623 if you need additional information. There will be some good speakers at each event.

Also, please remember that the costs to hold these events are pretty substantial and are being borne by only a few people. If at all possible, try to kick in $4, $10 or more to help these individuals.

  • Romney focuses on self; Obama emphasizes unity

    Mitt Romney criticizes President Obama for saying a person's success is rooted in his community, and is not all his alone. Romney belittles this with his belief in individual initiative. He is better at the put-down than the push-up.

  • Romney shows little regard for common man

    The Republicans in Congress have voted over and over, 33 times, redundantly and uselessly, to rescind what they call Obamacare.

  • Scouts' gay ban creates problem where none exists

    The Boy Scouts of America's "emphatic reaffirmation" of its vow to exclude any and all homosexuals from its hallowed ranks is ill-considered and pathetic, especially in view of its having reviewed the matter for two years.
