With Obama, adults no longer in charge
Now that Election Day is over, I have a few thoughts to share. The outcome wasn’t what I hoped for, but the people have spoken, and now we all have to live with their choice.
McCain was a lousy candidate, but at least he was a man of honor and experience. Obama will be disastrous for our nation. The adults are no longer in charge. Those who voted for “change” will get it, but it won’t be the kind they wanted.
Obama is two months away from taking office, but we are already seeing what’s in store for him when he does. China intends to capture Taiwan, Putin in Russia seeks to restore the Soviet Union, and terrorists worldwide are emboldened.
The sharks smell weakness and are circling. To borrow a phrase: Elections have consequences.
Obama is a naive fool who thinks he can sit down with our adversaries and make nice with them, and everybody is going to love us again after eight years of you-know-who. Frankly, I’d rather we be feared than loved.
And Iraq? Earlier this year, Obama said the American lives lost in Iraq were “wasted.” His policies will ensure it. Barack’s going to make Jimmy Carter look positively brilliant.
It isn’t much prettier on the domestic front. Too bad the American people fell for the empty suit’s fluffy rhetoric and catchy phrases.
“Tax cuts” for those who don’t pay income taxes (more welfare), wealth distribution, amnesty and driver’s licenses for 20-30 million illegals, free college, free everything, trillions of taxpayer dollars in new government programs, and on and on: That’s “change we can believe in,” all right.
Also, what exactly does he mean by a “national civilian security force” and what color shirts will they wear?
Story needs information from both sides
I was wondering if Clovis News Journal reporter Sharna Johnson is working on a future career in political writing. This is the sort of thing we have come to expect in biased political reporting where there is more fiction than fact.
The “Children missing mother” story in Sunday’s CNJ should have been titled “Criminal doesn’t like the way jail is run.”
The reporter totally left out some things readers should be informed about, including the parents’ interesting and varied criminal backgrounds.
I am sure she never considered how many inmates would use contact with boyfriends, husbands, and children to smuggle drugs and weapons into the jail.
I would suggest CNJ give us both sides of the story and let readers make up their minds.
Animal laws taking far too long to approve
Why are veterinarians so remiss in working to establish a law to see that all animals are spayed and neutered in our area?
They should not give shots unless animals are spayed or neutered.
Our mayor and others went out of town to observe a humane way to put homeless animals to sleep — that wouldn’t be necessary with fewer animals and a law.
How long does it take to write a law and approve it?
