Speakout: March 7, 2014

Beer

Beer can increase fat content, destroy livers, impair driving, start fights, cease smart decision making and poison the bloodstream. Pot can decrease the spread of many cancers, increase the body’s feel-good chemicals (naturally), increase brain activity and drain taxpayers from money they do not have. Which one is legal?

Restrooms

Here’s a summer project for businesses. Install heat and hot water in your restrooms. Raise toilet-tissue holders so you don’t have to stand on your head to get any. How can you wash your hands properly when the water is ice cold and automatic soap and water don’t work?

Benghazi

Neither vilifying the tea party nor citing past embassy attacks can justify the Benghazi debacle. The outrage is not that the attack occurred but that the current administration failed to protect the diplomats in spite of requests for additional security and lied about it for political gain.

Safety

To the person complaining about the Border Patrol helicopter: I think it is the sound of safety, security and the freedom we enjoy. I miss the sound from PAFB jets heading out to protect us from the evil in the world. Keep flying and make us safe.

Helicopter

As a Viet vet who lives on Rand Hill, I love the sound of the helicopter. When I was in the bush, that meant we were going to a base where a shower, clean clothes and hot food was waiting. Keep flying over; it makes me smile.

Marijuana

Hey Rand Hill, if your neighbors would stop growing marijuana, maybe the police wouldn’t fly over looking for it.

Raceway

It is legal to park on the city street if there is not a no-parking sign. People need to treat North Catherine Street as a street not a raceway. Slow down.....what’s the big rush anyway?
