---- — Retirement

To the person who says seniors are bankrupting our youth, might I remind you that you will be a senior someday. Maybe you should start saving for your retirement now instead of blaming us.

Guns

Some of the gun-control advocates in Congress are proposing to put gun-control measures on the ballot. I would propose they put term-limit measures for themselves on the ballot.

Grandkids

I have no money to give my grandkids. They have to just love me the way I am. Loving grandpa because he bought you is a shame.

Tests

Our nation’s best students are choosing to refuse in efforts to save education. 25-30 percent of our children’s school time is spent on testing. Kids are being used as test rats, and their personal information is being sold to private corporations for profit.

Languages

If I won a trip around the world to France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, etc., I would have to learn many languages and it would take years, if I go with your “learn the language before you go to a country” philosophy.

Library

Kudos to Mooers on getting your new library. Been a long time coming.

Wallet

My son lost his wallet at Harrigan’s and didn’t realize it until he was home. He went back, and someone had turned it in. Thank you so much. There is still good in this world.

Bilingual

Do you know how much money and time it takes to learn a language well enough to be bilingual? Yet you want a person who coming down to visit or a day once every few months to be bilingual.

Neighbors

Neighbor needs to mind their own business, check their own properties and get a life.
