On Christmas greetings: I remember 50 years ago people would say ‘happy holidays’ as a way to include all days of Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day—all in one phrase for happy holidays. So there’s no war on Christmas. Some people tell you that, so you will be willing to vote for someone who is willing to cut your Social Security and Medicare benefits.
On Thursday editorial, “Less access in the name of the ADA”: It’s hard not to be suspicious why Milton jumped so quickly to stop the live streaming of meetings considering there’s many ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) noncompliance issues in their facilities, but the school district moves at a snail’s pace on those issues, even though there is money readily available in the budget to pay for the improvements needed.
- It amazes me that they’re trying to be forward thinking on this ADA thing for something that might happen from somebody in another state when all these years they’ve ignored all the ADA things in their schools. Now they want to throw it all together in a big referendum and take care of it instead of doing it right all along.
On FCC ending net neutrality: All we’re doing is going back to how the internet always was as opposed to having government control your internet for you. You know what happens after government starts controlling your internet? That’s right, you’re going to get a big new tax slapped on your internet, so it’s going to be way more expensive, and you’re not going to see this innovation that you’ve been seeing. So keep the government out of your internet.
On lower corporate tax rate: Corporations had a 35 percent tax rate. After taking all the deductions and loopholes, their tax rate dropped down to the low 20s or high teens. What do you think it will drop to with a starting 25 percent tax rate? Remember, Trump said he didn’t pay taxes. Who do you think is going to be shafted with this new tax reform?
On Wednesday story, “Tax bill expected to boost some US industries” (Page 6B): I almost spit out my orange juice when I read this. All you have to do is remove one word, and you actually have an honest headline from the Associated Press. Remove the word ‘some,’ and it says, ‘Tax bill expected to boost US industries,’ a completely true and honest headline. Amazing.
On term limits: This is in regards to all the people complaining about people in government. How about we make sure that Congress and other government offices have a limitation of how long they can serve? Maybe that would give us a chance to every four years get someone new in there instead of having the same people in there year after year and listening to all the complaining.
On Hillary Clinton: This is about Hillary Clinton making a statement she wants to help Democrats in the 2018 elections. I’m sure there’s a lot of Democrats that are saying, ‘Please, Hillary, stay away from me. After all, you went up against Obama and lost, and you went up against Donald Trump and lost. They were two very beatable candidates and you couldn’t even pull that off. Please stay away.’
- Some of you might be wondering why General Mike Flynn had to plead guilty and may well go to jail for telling one lie to the FBI when Hillary Clinton told at least six lies to the FBI and faced absolutely no consequences. It’s because the FBI did not put Hillary Clinton under oath when they were questioning her. Is it normal for the FBI to not put the target of a criminal investigation under oath when questioning them? No, it’s so abnormal it’s probably the first time in the history of the FBI its ever been done.
On an unfortunate bus ride: I’m calling about people riding on the city bus. When you have people that are handicapped getting on there with walkers and people don’t get up and move so they can get their walker in, I think that’s pretty bad.
