To all the amnesiacs complaining about President Donald Trump playing golf, it was a rare event when former President Barack Obama wasn’t on the golf course.
Lots of smoke
It does not matter if people are warned that tobacco is harmful. Yes, tobacco kills people in various ways, but leave people alone to make their own foolish decisions. They know the risks they are taking when they eat too much, drink too much, drive too fast, bungee jump, buy and carry guns and so on. Life is full of decisions. It is our own personal choice; don’t blame just tobacco or guns.
Keep it away
I see the News-Press has let the Associated Press back on the headlines of the front page. And why? To tell us how many of our women want to kill their babies. Get this trash from the Associated Press back off the first page. Our local reporters have been doing a good job with it for the last several months. Let’s keep it that way.
The St. Joe City Council needs to admit there’s a vandalism problem in the Downtown area. I recently attended a wedding downtown, in the middle of the afternoon, and three pairs of licenses were stolen off vehicles parked in the Civic Arena parking lot. Plus, trash and litter is all over the place. … St. Joe will never make the list of places you must visit.
Pay it back
I hope the Democratic candidates dropping out of the presidential race put their money where their mouths were with the millions of dollars of leftover campaign donations. By law, they cannot keep it for personal use. They can donate it to charity, or keep it to run for office later. How about paying off some students’ college debt with it, since they were all promising to make college free and pay off all the debt with taxpayers’ money if elected?
Value of life
Yes, it is a shame when you are expecting a deformed baby, but that is only a small reason for abortions. My granddaughter was expecting a baby boy with a bad heart, but she chose to have him and hold him for a few minutes instead of just throwing him away. And it gave her memories that she will never forget. He lived for just 10 minutes, and would have been 11 years old now.
I have a question about the Founding Fathers of this country. How could they sit there and claim that all men are created equal when they owned slaves themselves? When they had people in bonds and chains, and they allowed slavery to come to this country, but yet they put down on a piece of paper that all men are created equal. Very good question, isn’t it?
