Speakout: Feb. 23, 2014

Marijuana

Marijuana is a drug, and it changed my loved one drastically. I see my loved one looking sick and drained, gaining weight, on edge and almost to the point of not living life. Staying in a bedroom and smoking it all the time.

Outrage

Every time a tea party person says “Benghazi,” ask him where his outrage was from 2002 to 2008 when 13 U.S. embassies were attacked, with scores killed, including 10 Americans. Ask him about his outrage with 241 Marines killed in Beirut in 1983.

Education

Rumor has our governer wants convicts to get a college education. I wonder if the state taxpayers will have to pay convicts to go to school. Why not help our kids with their college loans, tuitions, etc.? I think our tax money would be better spent helping our kids get a good-paying job in our society today rather than taking a chance on a convict staying in society.

War

To the Person who stated that war solves nothing. Call up Marty McFly, fire up the Deloran and go back to 1941 and stop the U.S. from entering World War II.

Kiosks

Bet our city taxpayers and local businesses with advertising on those kiosks are happy to see them surrounded by feet of snow. Seems like they’re a huge waste of $100,000-plus that’s not accomplishing the goals we were told they would.
