But then also there is this:
I really do not care if folks making over $250K have to pay more
taxes! 400 K would be fairer, I think! As far as I know very few, if
any, of my pals make anything like that! I really would not be a bit
offended if Unemployment was reduced to 26 weeks as it was at one
time! Some folk might have to work for a lot less, maybe I could
afford a teen-ager to tend my yard!
I could stand not getting a COLA
on my Retirement and/or my Social Security this year! It's not
enough, but probably couldn't be!
It would not upset me if every government agency had to get by with
1% less money plus 1% less employees! I frankly, would love to see
some changes in the Massive Entitlement Programs that are rising
each year and stifling our economy!
I would be able to stand the pain if we were to cut our Foreign Aid,
let's say 10% across the board! I would not mind paying a little
more at the gas pump if the money was going to the Government
instead of the oil/gas producers! I would be happy as hell if the
nationwide speed limit was reduced to 55 MPH. My goodness, think how
much better gas mileage, wear and tear on our autos, and how many
fewer deaths. Enforce it and heck with what the Trucking Industry
I can tolerate it, frankly, if "Assault Weapons" and high capacity
clips are taken off the market, we already have enough to last us
for a long-long time. I think they are ugly anyway! A longer waiting
period say ten (10) days wouldn't upset me nor does a Mental
Health/Criminal Record background inquiry!
I recognize how much money Hollywood contributes to the politicians
and that they, Democrats and Republicans and Hollywood alike, are
very loathe to do any thing at all about violence in movies and TV
and gaming devices, or allowing the music industry to desecrate
women, children or anything else they desire, under the "Freedom of
Speech" Amendment. It needs done!
You should know that I am a hunter, a shooter, I reload ammo, and if
my wallet allowed me to buy some more that I would like to own I
would! It doesn't, I can't, and it really does not trouble me. If
someone is a threat to my family, I can defend them and will always
be able to do so.
Unlike some I do not believe that black-booted government thugs or
military will someday knock on our doors and say, "Gimme yer guns".
If anything like that ever occurs it will be because gradually, a
little bit at a time we have allowed the Constitution to be ignored
and altered by the political parties in power.
