“Thumbs up to my granddaughter, Gabrielle Gardiner. Last July I was diagnosed with lung cancer. After explaining some of the effects of treatment, Gabby decided to grow her hair for locks of love, telling me that we could make a wig out of it, and she’d always be on my mind and she’d always be on my mind. On Tuesday, her hair had grown the required length of 12 inches, and she donated her hair to locks of love. For all the love and happiness she brings, I want to give Gabby a total thumbs up! Love, Grammy.”

“Thumbs down to the silent majority for keeping your tail between your legs. Speak up! If not, your lives, your communities, and your souls will belong to the liberal agenda.”

“Thumbs down to Bob Campbell, Planning Board Member. I was watching a rerun of the old paper factory and I couldn’t believe how you acted on that case. That was terrible. I wish there was more people like Ron Belanger to help this town instead of you knocking everybody out. I’m glad that Ron put you down. You should step down, Bob. I think you’re too old for this 2012. You probably got your education in 1900 or something. I’ve seen smart people go to college and they come out blooming idiots. I think that’s what has happened to you.”

“Thumbs down to the Salem Market Baskets for using ‘Pink Slime’ in all their ground beef products. I asked one of their butchers and he said ‘they ad it to all their ground beef products.’ Pink Slime are scraps that is treated with ammonia that were previously only used for dog food until they figured out they could make more money selling it to us suckers and serving it to our kids in school. Let them know you will shop elsewhere until they change this outrageous policy.”

“Thumbs up to Rod Class of North Carolina and AIB radio for determining that police officers are indeed private contractors. What does that say for Salem? Are the Salem Police private contractors? Are personally liable for improper stops and arrests? If so, are they really public servants, or policy officers for a corporation? What about our town officials? Who do they really work for?”

“Thumbs down to every driver who speeds through my Grove Ave neighborhood. The mere moments you save driving that fast is nothing compared to the life you could take of a child, neighbor or beloved family pet. Slow down.... please. Remember to mention this to your guests as well.”

“Thumbs down to our officers who swear an oath to support the Constitution, yet cannot tell you what Article 13 says. They can’t recite Article 14, or even the 10th Amendment! Would you continue to pay your car mechanic if he couldn’t point out the alternator or the carburetor? Isn’t that fraud? The most important requirement to hold their position is that ‘Oath of Office,’ yet they don’t know any of it. Isn’t that a contract to us under fraudulent conditions? Are the town officers in the same pickle?”

“Thumbs up to licensing! If carrying a ‘gun’ is a crime, why is the state handing out licenses for criminal activity? Is fishing a crime? Then why do I need a license if it’s not a crime? May

I have a license to take the Federal Reserve Notes from that bank please?”

“Thumbs up on the license comment. They

can’t issue licenses for illegal activity. So if it’s not illegal, why do we need a license? We’re on to something here. We need a license for a privilege? How can the state issue a privilege? We the People created government, so our creation is now charging us for legal activity? Something smells here!”

on March 23, 2012, attacking women’s issues writers’ ‘total nonsense and gross exaggeration of the truth.’ The thumbs down was very kind and upstanding, it refrained from pointing out the ‘total nonsense and gross exaggeration of the truth.’ Talk about exaggeration: Obama was then blamed by the thumbs down for every ill in this country, the world economy and the international oil market, a US president with such power! This superb exaggeration could not be made better by Josef Goebbels or Rupert Murdoch’s news crowd.”

“Thumbs down to the Salem Patch and it’s Editor Jake. I can’t believe you allowed so many ignorant comments to be posted about the House failing to repeal same sex marriage. Regardless of which side of the issue you are on, those comments were very offensive. And to Mr. McDougall, you make Archie Bunker look like a Saint! How deplorable your

words were coming from someone who sits on an elected board in our town. Such bigotry, you should be removed immediately!”

“Thumbs down. How did Pat H. get to be Chairman of the BOS? How long will this go on? He does not know how to run it and has no clue (with his ‘ok – ok – ok’). Look at the well-dressed, well mannered Tim Keller. We know he’s new on BOS, but he certainly has the ‘know-how’! E. McBride also has the background, the intelligence and integrity. Pleas, Pat, you’re a

nice man, but not the person to head the board. Of course, we all love Steven Campbell – why not him? We’re all happy Mike Lyons isn’t chairman. Study hard, Pat, and show us you can do it. Don’t just let each person talk – give them permission and get to know the rules and regulations, please, of a chairman.”
