Petty, small man does not deserve anyone’s vote

With an angry old Socialist narrowly losing to the crooked coronated one and an unfiltered, loudmouthed businessman who’s never even held public office toppling his double-digit establishment rivals, this is proving to be one of the weirdest elections ever.

Especially considering that angry old Socialist is technically still in the race and although he hasn’t endorsed the crooked coronated one, he’s said he’ll probably vote for her.

Nor any drop to drink …

We’re in a huge drought. There’s a massive water crisis.

Or not.

Maybe we’re just in the middle of a small water event. But I don’t buy it. I think that our state leaders are afraid that if they come out and say how big a problem this is then nobody will move to the state, not families, not manufacturers, not businesses of any kind.

Stricter gun control would have opposite effect of intention

Stricter gun control is not the answer.

The president’s knee-jerk reaction to the worst mass shooting in our country’s history is to make it harder for all law-abiding citizens to exercise their Second Amendment rights, but he’s wrong.

Stricter gun control wouldn’t make us more safe, it would do the opposite.


Drowning: a preventable tragedy

The worst thing a parent can go through is the loss of a child. The child is supposed to outlive the parent.

But leukemia doesn’t know that.

A heart defect doesn’t know that.

SIDS doesn’t know that.

Bathroom choice puts women, girls in danger

The real problem with allowing transgender people to use the bathroom of their choice is that it makes it impossible to differentiate between who should be using the women’s room and who should not.

Proponents argue that being transgender is not a choice. I agree.

That transgender people shouldn’t be forced to use a bathroom of the sex they don’t identify with. I concur.

Democratic Party lets Hillary down

Poor Hillary.

Her party just keeps letting her down.

She was supposed to be crowned president of the United States in 2008 but she couldn’t even win the Democratic nod during the primaries. Her party went with some black dude nobody had ever heard of instead.

No lives matter, but they should

Black lives don’t matter, white lives don’t matter, cop’s lives don’t matter, nor do children’s lives. All of the recent shootings in this country prove that lives don’t matter.

What matters is that this country has a huge problem with guns in the hands of the wrong people. And gun advocates are protecting them.

1 looking for nod; 5 hoping to secure cabinet positions

That wasn’t a debate, it was a job interview.

I thought I was going to see how the Democrat candidates differed, but instead suffered through two hours of watching five sycophants posturing for Hillary Clinton’s future cabinet positions.

No wonder it didn’t go into overtime, two hours of brownnosing was exhausting enough for the audience, I can’t imagine how her five lackeys felt.

White House is no place for Clinton’s hatred

Even if you agree with Hillary Clinton’s philosophies, would you really want someone that angry in the White House?

It takes a certain level of hatred to spew the sort of vitriolic rhetoric she’s been casting lately.

As if comparing Republicans to terrorists weren’t hate-filled enough, her pot boiled over the next day when she compared them to Nazis.

1 solution to 2 problems

Here’s a solution to the problem of illegal immigrants entering the United States. It partly comes from some of the Republican presidential contenders’ solutions mixed in with some economic solutions to our largest national corporations’ manufacturing products overseas.

Many of these companies have gone offshore to cut costs. Almost nowhere in the world do labor costs come close to those of U.S. union workers, though I won’t argue whether the wages paid are anywhere close to being legitimate based on productivity.
