One vote per voter

Regarding the Electoral College, it does not make sense to me why the vote of a person who happens to live in an urban area should have less value than the vote of a person who lives in a rural area. I do not understand the logic of the system. Our elections should be based on popular votes.

Trump’s plan

To the person who commented on canceling the Boeing order for Air Force One: Canceling it does not necessarily throw people out of work. It can send Boeing back to the drawing board and accounting office to come up with a better price. To the person concerned about lobbyists: I feel certain they are in Trump’s plan to drain the swamp. Lobbyists have put more water into the swamp than anyone.

What happened?

What happened to the beautiful light display on Penny Lane in Long Beach? A beautiful drive through the light show. This was a family tradition every year since opening.

It’s a crime

When are our cities and state going to make animal neglect or abuse a major crime?

Happy holidays!

Send a “holiday” card, not a Merry Christmas card. You never know what holiday each house you deliver to celebrates. Happy holidays!

Lest we forget

Let’s not forget in 1991, Whitney Houston brought down the house with the national anthem. It still is the most memorable moment by anyone singing the national anthem.

Kennel them

I hope you intend on supervising your kids this next vacation from school. They were way too loud and unruly during the last one. When were kids allowed to scream at the top of their lungs all day long? Might I suggest a kennel?

Please explain

When we have the lowest unemployment rate, the Dow is at 16,000. In 2008, it was at 6,000. Our country is stable with using our own oil and not depending on foreign oil. Why is every Republican-led state minus Florida and Texas struggling to stay afloat? Mississippi is cutting everything to the bare bone.
