I was just wondering if they’re going to furlough more people or civilians in the military bases, or are they talking about them having to take time off. How about the people in the White House, in the Capitol and everything, are they going to have to take time off just like everybody else? And how about the military people that are having to stand by the doors and open the doors for these politicians that could open the doors themselves? They ain’t in that bad of shape.

I was wondering has anybody thought since we took prayer out of school, took the Ten Commandants off our walls and just did away with Jesus altogether, with all the shootings in the schools happening, all the crime rate in schools went up. It’s just something to think about. We’ve pulled another boo-boo.

To the curmudgeon whining about stop signs on Lawson Road: there were over 15 people talked to about stop signs. If you have a better idea, bring it up. Otherwise, keep complaining.
