---- — Disarm

Those who want to end violence often seek to disarm their fellow citizens. This does not actually end violence. It merely gives the state a monopoly on violence.

Dogs

The law is pick up your dog’s droppings when you walk it. And let the dog do its business and do not pull the leash to try to stop it; that is cruel.

Sharing

Two local schools to fund a study for shared services. We know this has been looked into before without positive results. If there is money to fund such a study, then the taxpayers are still being overtaxed. Shared services is a non-issue.

Employees

There are now 2,748,000 federal employees working for the government that our taxes pay for. That’s more than enough to listen to every phone call we make and read every email we send. Freedom is not free; it costs $3.67 trillion.

F-35s

Vermont, if you don’t want those F35s, send them to Plattsburgh. I live near the south end of the runway and would love to have them.

Homeless

I think the state should use their money to build a shelter for the homeless instead of redoing things that don’t need to be redone. I just saw a homeless Vietnam vet in Walmart parking lot. Some people fought for us and we can’t give them a home.

Sticker

I’m sorry, but if you park your car in my apartment complex with an atheist bumper sticker, it will be removed. It’s disrespectful to other people.

Barking

There is a dog in Rouses Pointthat is outside barking early in the morning and late at night. I woke up to barking at 3:50 a.m.
