You Said It, Nov. 1, 2009

Many thanks to REI for the government school donation. (Because of) the insurmountable debt being passed on to future generations, they’ll be living in those tents.

Whether legal or illegal, most of the Hispanics I have encountered have been hard-working and very courteous. In sharp contrast, we have the mobs of sanctified natural-born citizens spewing disrespectful, often treasonable diatribe. Me thinks, perhaps, we are deporting from the wrong group.

The time has come for our community to face reality concerning the need for a new public safety facility. Grand Junction council members and their staff can “listen” forever. That is no solution. Let’s see some proactive action to get this travesty on Ute (Avenue) fixed.

I would like to know why the St. Mary’s helicopter pilots continually fly east down Bookcliff Avenue over our homes and apartments when they turn and go south, turn and go due west and turn and go north at all hours of the day and night, flying low enough to rattle our windows, scaring our sleeping children and waking everyone up on that Bookcliff pattern.

Anita Dunn, the communications director for the Obama administration, considers her primary political philosopher Mao. She was defended in this position by Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod. All this following their attack on Fox News, the only news organization willing to ask the hard questions and question administration positions. Is freedom of speech at risk? Only if the public lets it happen. It is a choice.

Interesting. The National Academy of Sciences has just discovered that providing the necessities of life has consequences. The next thing that they will suggest is that we sit in a corner sucking our thumb, next to a campfire to stay warm. Alas, wood smoke also has consequences, too. My my, what are we to do?

If atheists believe that there is no God, why then do they get so excited when someone prays in public? If there is no God, who are they praying to? They cannot protest a prayer to God, because they do not believe in God. It would seem that in these times people would have more important things to worry about than a prayer before a meeting. Please stop waving the Constitution around and just take a minute to read it. The framers of the Constitution did not want a state religion; it is as simple as that.

So now we know change and it is: More debt, more taxes, more welfare, more regulation, more government, more wasteful spending and more corruption. Well, at least, we got more. Thanks, Mr. President.

I thought Obama was just going to make us relive the worst of the Clinton presidency with another health care reform fiasco. But it looks like he also wants to relive the worst of Jimmy Carter with feckless foreign relations and the return of the misery index, plus the worst of Richard Nixon with a paranoid enemies list.
