Speakout: June 9, 2013

Fundraising

Gay basketball player comes out and the White House has big-time fundraiser. How about starving kids, medical research, senior citizens who can’t afford medicine? There are a lot more important areas for fundraising than this political lobby group.

Child support

I would love to know what is the point of giving someone a year in jail for not paying child support. Now the state has to support them and still support the children.

Laws

It must be a basic prerequisite for citizenship to respect the rule of law. Those who violated the laws cannot be allowed to obtain the cherished fruits of citizenship. We can’t make illegal immigration an easier path to citizenship than legal immigration.

Friendships

A friendship consists of getting together and spending time together, not just texting. It doesn’t seem right that people let texting take the place of having fun together.

Monitors

Schools should have monitors on buses to help the little ones and help the driver. The first week my granddaughter started school, her parents were notified about a kid on the bus with a knife. Since then, there have several other incidents.

Lies

Bill Clinton lied about an affair and was impeached. Obama lies about everything and is praised.

Attire

I recently visited a loved one at a local nursing home. I went to ask a question and was directed to a male R.N. He was wearing Bermuda shorts and sneakers. I thought he was going to the beach. I think employees should be dressed in proper attire.

Grateful

Guns worries, blaming Obama, picking on our civil servants. Can’t we speak out about anything positive? I just got back from a beautiful vacation, and I want to remind everyone to stop, take a look around and be grateful for their life and loved ones.
