I had the need for some input so I began scrolling through the news after simply doing an engine search on "news"...mmmmmmmmmmmm "Knit your Own Royal Wedding", ""Love you body like Neve Campbell, "How about Federal Debt Ceiling to be Hit by May 15th. Ceiling....what ceiling. Do you mean that our elected officials have maxed out their credit cards (sorry) our credit cards, and now they are discussing raising their limits? My daughter did that with my credit card when she went to college, and I cancelled it. No raising the limit, no giving her another one. If you can't manage a budget, especially when my money is involved then you're done.
Now what this is all leading to is that our local officials are so busy with smoke and mirrors, and mismanagement that the budget coming out in the next five months hasn't been addressed. They're so busy cancelling meetings, then calling special sessions (I counted seven since January), that they can't get their act together. Hell, they can't even schedule a picture day. It's April; the County book won't be ready until June.
The resolution writing, committed legislators are being shut down by the old-timer pack if it doesn't fit into their agenda. What a shame. This alone is a reason for term limits. The initial reason for voting in our politicians is because we believed that they would make changes, help quality of life issues, and give us back the ability to live on what we make. Yes we can make our own decisions, Yes we do know what's best for us, and right now we are looking for legislative action before you max out our credit cards and we see more people walking with backpacks than driving cars. Just check out the vote on the Freeman's front page today. Would shutting the federal goverment down impact you.........no. Why? Because they are doing anything either except misplacing 2 billion dollars in the mid east.
