Too liberal

Way to go, Singapore! Five stars. There are very few drug drug dealers there! In our country, there are too many liberals. There are too many needless deaths.

Babies at risk

It is so disturbing to hear of yet another baby being viciously attacked by the mother’s boyfriend, usually not the baby’s father. What’s wrong with these women who trust their boyfriends with their babies? And what are these boyfriends doing at home, while the mother is working? What is that all about? I know times have changed. But when babies are victims of out of control boyfriends, these babies’ mothers need to pay more attention. These sad stories are happening too often.

Slipping away

The American people were so hungry for change they did not do their homework. As we speak the Second Amendment is being abused by the government, the IRS is giving our personal information to the government. Why are we giving $5 billion to Libya and Egypt each year but can’t give wounded veterans and retired veterans what they were promised? You can bet the soldiers who sacrificed their lives and bodies never wanted this type of country. It was liberty they went for. So sad. It’s a sad day when politicians sign a major health law then read it. What worries me is that America is so quiet. I think we are so politically tired. A blind man can see in the near future that freedom will be gone.

EBT cards

I was in the checkout line at the grocery store behind two women. While the cashier was scanning their groceries, they were both typing away on their iPhones. Their groceries rang up at almost $500. What did they whip out? Their taxpayer-funded EBT card! Shocking! This is not the first time I have seen this. Is an iPhone issued with an EBT card? I thought the EBT program was for folks in need. If you can afford an iPhone then why are the taypayers paying for your groceries? We need accountability for this program, please!
