This is for you, Trump supporters. I learned just now that the United States voted against a United Nations resolution condemning Nazism. Now, if you’re happy that your glorious leader is voting against Nazism, shame on you. If you’re for him, then you’re for fascism, and that’s just the way it is.
Editor’s note: The U.S. voted in the United Nations against a Russian-backed resolution condemning the glorification of Nazism, because of concerns about free speech and Russia using it as a wedge issue to attack its neighbors. The U.S. voted against the resolution, which tends to come up every year, during the presidencies of Barack Obama and George W. Bush.
I think men under the age of 35 should not be allowed to purchase these war games. I watched my elderly husband play some of these games and they are horrific. He finally had to quit because his blood pressure got agitated so bad, but they are horrible. And these young people, they don’t know how to separate reality from fiction, I guess.
Where were the City Council members when they had the ribbon-cutting for the new animal shelter? Those volunteers for Friends of the Shelter have brought it this far with years of sweat and tears, and they deserve better support than that.
Editor’s note: City officials at the ceremony included Mayor Bill McMurray, City Manager Bruce Woody, Health Director Debra Bradley and Police Chief Chris Connally.
Lot of thanks
Thank you for the city crew that repaired the enclosed garages at the city lot where the Joyce Raye Patterson Senior Citizens Center is located. I know the lot is used by many Downtown. It has greatly improved the look, and is a good shelter for our cars in the rain and snow. Thanks to all who signed the petition for bringing it to the city’s attention.
Time to play
The new playground at Hochman Park is very nice. Thank you, St. Joseph.
At last, God is listening to me. He almost never does. Rain at night, sunshine during the day — perfect combination.
Isn’t it a great feeling when the president of the United States stands up for its citizens? Unfortunately, under this president, we will never know that feeling.
Right to dissent
I agree with the caller that said he’s not a tree-hugger or a flag-hugger. I do love our flag, but I do agree we have all earned the right, if we are here legally, to disagree. I am tired of people saying, just because I’m a Trump supporter, I am a deplorable, racist, awful person. We have a right to disagree, and we have a right to be heard. Just because we agree with him does not mean we need to be banned from anywhere or that we need to be talked against.
Proud to farm
I overheard one time, “All these farmers are never satisfied. It is either too hot or too cold, or too wet or too dry.” Being a farmer, that bristled a little. Later, I realized she was absolutely, totally right. But I am still proud to be an American farmer.
