Speakout: Sept. 27, 2012


---- — Animals

Anybody abusing any animal should be charged with felony, and it should carry the maximum allowed by law, and then some, understanding that animals have no voice and are truly innocent victims that cannot speak for themselves.


Abolish all political parties and let the country become united. Hold elections for the best person to win by popular vote. Then this country could fix its problems. George Washington did not want political parties. He was right.


Freedom of speech is for everyone. Even the gay community. You don’t like is, move to St. Petersburg, Russia. You’ll fit right in.


I love my life. I love who I am. If you don’t like gay people, then find another neighborhood. I’m not going anywhere.


To the person with the yard full of televisions, clean yourself up. The small quaint town is looking bad enough with the junkyard across the street and the old school buses up the road.


To the person who wrote in Speakout about the young child that is having a temper tantrum at the checkout. Never mind how the child’s parents are handling the situation. You cannot slap a child or you could be arrested for child abuse.


Why is it that some folks have no problem sending a graduation, birthday or wedding invitation but have a problem sending thank-you notes to those who gave gifts? How ungrateful. Show your appreciation. Send a thank you. Believe it or not, it is expected.


Whoa ... the national news reports that today’s average gas price hit 3.72. However, the price of gas along Route 3 in Plattsburgh reads 3.99.9 today. What’s going on in the North Country?


I was on chemo. I washed dishes and then had to sleep for two hours. I washed clothes and then had to sleep for two hours. I made supper and had to sleep afterward for two hours. Because I can do a litte housework, you think I can be employed.


I try to not drive anymore than I have to. I try to conserve energy. But then everyone around me is running vehicles all the time and even lawnmowers all the time.


I work at a dollar store. I never realized how much teachers spend of their own money for their classrooms. Parents don’t buy 25 rulers, scissors or calculators. When I ask, most say they are teachers. Thank to my teachers, even if it is late.


Do people really need to drive under the speed limit on Route 3 between Plattsburgh and Saranac Lake every day? If you really have to drive that slow, just pull over and let everyone else go. Some of us are trying to get to out destinations on time.
