---- — Better world

That was quite a sight to see in Boston this past unforgettable week and certainly was heart warming to see how everyone came together. People were helping people and the ones with the worst injuries were evacuated right away in the steady streams of ambulances that were there. Boston showed the whole world what people can do to help others. It is too bad people can’t be like this all the time instead of just during disasters. What a better world this would be. But this is only a thought, not reality.

Birthday card

Recently, I received a birthday card from Lawrence Mayor William Lantigua and I get one each year. What a waste of taxpayers’ money. Just think of all the money that the City of Lawrence would save if he would not send these birthday cards to all Lawrencians. Every year I get them and I just get madder and madder. Just think, he uses the Lawrence permit to mail them and he must use a clerk to get them ready and send them out and we as taxpayers are paying for this. If there is a way Mr. Lantigua can waste money, he does and it’s a disgrace to the City of Lawrence.

Sequester cuts

This is how Obama and his administration treats the people of America. Instead of Obama demanding cuts impacted forced his sequester to be in programs with no impacts to the people he politicizes them and deliberately and unnecessarily furloughs the air traffic controllers just to make his point. We have numerous programs that could be trimmed that would not cause any impacts at all to the people. But, Obama throws another temper tantrum because he didn’t get his way and now the traveling public is being punished. I don’t want to hear again how much Obama feels for the people of America, obviously he could care less and proves it every day. It’s all about Obama.

Blaming others

Why is it every time the survivor of a deadly crime always blames his or her deceased accomplice? That 19-year-old terrorist is old enough to know precisely what he was doing and its aftermath. Just like that dirtbag to blame his brother.

Hopes dashed

Poor, poor Democrats! You were so sure the marathon bomber was a tea partyer. After all, CNN and the New York Times told you it was! And it was April 15, a day all us tax-hating right-wingers try to kill people. But cheer up, the year is still young. There’s plenty of time for one of us homophobic, Bible-thumping knuckle-draggers to set off a bomb and make you happy. Keep hope alive!

Dreams shattered

Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow and David Axelrod had their hopes and dreams shattered when they found out the terrorists who caused the massacre in Boston were definitely not tea party members or white middle-aged Americans holding a grudge. They were so intent on politicizing this atrocity to be in line with the Obama agenda for America and now are extremely disappointed these terrorists are affiliated with an international radical Muslim group. Obama’s first priority is to keep America safe and totally protected but obviously he has other not-so-important priorities. Please pray for all the victims and their families for this preventable terrorist attack.
