Daily Times (Primos, PA) - - WEATHER - A FAN JUST WON­DER­ING THERE’S A REA­SON BLAST FROM THE PAST CYN­I­CAL VOTER

GO TO PRIMOS

To the call­ers look­ing for IRS forms, the Primos/Se­cane branch of the Up­per Darby li­brary has them. They just got them in last Fri­day.

LOVE MY TIMES

I love the cov­er­age that the Daily Times gave to the Ea­gles. I’m not even a sports fan and I don’t un­der­stand every­thing about foot­ball, but I watched the whole game and saw all the cov­er­age of the pa­rade. What a fab­u­lous job you did, and the mem­o­ries will last for­ever.

PRINT ‘EM

To the call­ers look­ing for hard­copy 1040 forms: Have you asked a rel­a­tive to print them from the IRS web­site for you, or called a li­brary to ask to if a ref­er­ence li­brary can help you print them out there?

NOW THAT’S AN IN­SULT

Hey, “Booth­wyn,” when speak­ing about Gov. Wolf, you said “I ain’t seen him.” Wow, where did you go to school? Ei­ther you didn’t pass English, or you’re ac­tu­ally from South Philly and prob­a­bly a Trump sup­porter.

COUGH IT UP, TRUM­PETS

I have a novel idea: How about the Trump sup­port­ers pay for his ego-stroking mil­i­tary pa­rade? Af­ter all, they’ve al­lowed them­selves to be ma­nip­u­lated and molded like Play-Doh by Trump and the rest of his rich con­ser­va­tive bud­dies.

SI­LENCE IS BREATH­TAK­ING

I haven’t heard any­thing from those call­ers who said that Howie Rose­man was a com­plete fool – mort­gag­ing the fu­ture on Car­son Wentz, who ev­ery rep­utable sports­writer na­tion­wide said didn’t have what it takes for the pros. Re­mem­ber them from a cou­ple years ago? I thought they would have graced us with their al­l­know­ing wis­dom again by now.

WHY US?

For once I agreed with Jo­dine May­berry on some­thing – that Trump’s mil­i­tary pa­rade idea isn’t a good one – but of course she brings up the “we spend 25 times for on the mil­i­tary than the next 10 coun­tries com­bined” thing. And why is that? We’re bankrolling the pro­tec­tion the en­tire free world. The “demo­cratic so­cial­ist” Nordic coun­tries would not be liv­ing in their soon-to-im­plode fan­tasy world if they had to pull their own weight in de­fense spend­ing.

THANKS, JIM

Ev­ery time I hear the mayor of Philadel­phia talk, I say to my­self, “Thank God I no longer live in that city.” And also, to KYW: Ken­ney is not funny. Thank you.

LEFTISTS ARE TOPS

I agree with “No Joy There.” I’ve read some stupid right-wing calls in Sound Off over the years, but noth­ing tops the an­gry leftists with bizarre, brain­less com­plaints over the hid­den po­lit­i­cal mean­ings they find in any­thing and every­thing. I re­mem­ber not that long ago some­body saw kids do­ing char­ity work on the TV news and went off about how those kids ob­vi­ously aren’t Repub­li­cans be­cause Repub­li­cans only steal from the poor or some ridicu­lous di­a­tribe like that.

TAKE THAT

Re­mem­ber one thing: If a Cadil­lac doesn’t have fins, it’s noth­ing but a big, ugly Honda.

WENTZ THE WIN­NER

This is for the Mon­day morn­ing quar­ter­back “Wentz The Loser:” You’re an id­iot. That’s all I can say. Wentz was great and Foles was great, but you’re an id­iot.

A WORLD OF NON­SENSE

I think I can get down with a Trump vs. Oprah 2020 pres­i­den­tial election. We elected twice Obama – a far-left hack who no busi­ness be­ing in the Se­nate, never mind the White House – while vil­i­fy­ing a war hero in John McCain and the nicest per­son to ever run for pres­i­dent in Mitt Rom­ney. Then we had the two worst hu­man be­ings in the his­tory of ma­jor party nom­i­nees in Trump and Hil­lary. So why Trump and Oprah? Two hard­work­ing, in­tel­li­gent busi­ness peo­ple who built their em­pires on com­plete non­sense. That’s Amer­ica seems to be to­day – a lot of peo­ple with a lot of po­ten­tial tread­ing wa­ter in a sea of medi­ocrity and non­sense.
