A good run
Everybody has been saying nobody is above the law for over 200 years. We can’t say that anymore.
It’s official now. Donald Trump is above the law.
Cover it up
It appears that Republican U.S. members of the House and Senate forgot about the oath of office they took when elected which reads they “will support and defend the Constitution of the U.S. against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same. I will take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion. And I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office of which I am about to enter, so help me God.” Does covering up for all of Trump’s wrongdoings and behavior mean more to them than their oath of office?
Look to Krug
I was just wondering why they’re having all these concerts down at Coleman Hawkins Park when they don’t have any of those nice long concerts up at Krug Park Amphitheater like we used to. I think that would be a wonderful thing to have.
Who needs it?
I would like people’s opinion on the issue about people donating items to churches at different places. The people volunteering in these places have the pick of all of these things free before the public. People don’t realize they are donating to the volunteers instead of the public. Is that what they had in mind before they donated these items, thinking that people in need are really going to get it?
One reason I hesitate to vote for a Democrat is that I want the government monkey off my back. And the Democrat Party wants to turn that monkey into a gorilla.
I see we are now waiting for the governor to possibly sign that law to repeal motorcycle helmet laws, which I think is a good deal because everybody should make your own decision for themselves. As for me, as a survivor of a motorcycle wreck who if I hadn’t had the helmet on I would have died, I will always wear mine and I would encourage anyone to wear one, too, because it’s just not a good decision whether it’s a law or not. Your health and welfare is more precious than wind blowing through your hair.
More on laptops
I just recently read about the school board approving all these laptops. Wow. We could save a lot of money on air conditioning, repair school repairs. Let’s just eliminate the schools all together, have a tech support system. Let the little kiddies go to school at home and have a virtual classroom and likely maybe have some kind of meals support system to send their food home. We will save a whole lot of money by golly.
