Where are all the sane, moderate Republicans? The two leading candidates are downright scary. I am very worried.

Censure, indeed

Steven Palazzo said in Wednesday's newspaper that Congress should censure president Obama. I thought they were already doing that. Anytime you vote to repeal The Affordable Healthcare Act 62 times, what do he think the Republicans are trying to do. Every time they vote against all his policies, what does he think they are doing? Every time they disrespect the President of The United States, what does he think they are doing, besides showing their true color? Shame on Palazzo!

Get to work

On the local editorial page today we heard from our congressman, Steven Palazzo. He was given a half page to tell us that he'd offered legislation to censure the president, and why that needed to happen. Wasted breath. Wasted ink and paper space. Meaningless effort. Transparent pandering. I suggest to congressman Palazzo, that he spend our money getting something substantive done.


If Donald Trump loses, he's going to sue us all.

Support the veterans

I was pleased to participate in the distribution and collection of wreaths at the Biloxi National Cemetery. The ceremony prior to the distribution was a fitting tribute. Of concern is not every veteran receives a wreath. Approximately 8,500 -- or about one half -- did not. A local civic club or employer could remedy this. Let's get behind the effort and provide a wreath for every veteran next year.

Put a muzzle on it

Would you folks who have dogs that just bark to be barking when you let them out please have some consideration for your neighbors and please muzzle your dogs or train them not to bark when you let them out? Thank you for your kind consideration.

Lest we forget

To our representatives, present and future, the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776. Remember the preamble: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, in that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it and to institute, new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness."
