ONLY IN AMERICA would people here illegally get away with protesting our immigration policy. Our leaders stink.
IT USED TO BE if you broke the law you would get punished and then could pay your debt to society and move on. Not anymore. We might as well just pass a law that if you commit any crime you’re incarcerated for life. Even when we release people we punish them by sticking them with a record that makes them pretty much unemployable. And then people wonder why they wind up re-offending.
MARTHA KING DOES an excellent job at Augusta Cares. She responded well whenever I called. Now that there are seven service representatives, I hope that it does not end up a bureaucratic organization failing to serve the customers well. If they listen to Martha while being trained, we will be all right. Thanks, Martha, for all you have done over the years.
I DO MOST OF MY purchases online – not to save on sales tax as lawmakers would ask you to believe, but to keep from dealing with uncaring sales clerks. Retail stores don’t get it! They spend millions of dollars to get you into their store, and 10 cents to have you served in a professional manner. I traveled 40 miles today to purchase an advertised item from a well-known “any kind of tool-cheap” store only to be told, “Sorry, we’re out of those” without a bit of responsibility taken. Sooner or later, your worst employee will wait on your best customer.
VIOLENCE, GORE AND gunplay persisted on prime-time TV shows right after the Newtown school shooting, according to the Parents Television Council. It looks like the media executives are not willing to change and accept responsibility for their part in the gun violence. Banning guns is not the only answer.
THE MAYOR OF Blythe is trying to build a library when Blythe doesn’t need a library. All she needs to do is turn the park into a Wi-Fi hot spot. All research and info someone would need is on the Internet. This mayor is out of date, and it’s time for change come November.
PRESIDENT OBAMA had FBI training manuals “altered to remove references to radical jihad.” What other insanity has he done that we’ve not been told about?
IF YOU WANT TO curb alcohol abuse in teenagers, when you arrest the teen, you arrest the parents. I guarantee it will work.
