John Williams: People should be upset
To the editor:
I would like to offer my condolences to the American people; it seems that Americans have been diagnosed as being stupid and incapable of thinking for themselves. This, according to the IRS and the Obama administration, comes from the fact that the IRS thinks people are dumb enough to believe that not only did fired IRS chief Lois Lerner’s computer crash, but six more of her colleagues’ computers did, as well. Adding to the insult of the American people comes the statement from the IRS now claiming the company used for backup of important information was fired just before all of the crashes took place. This, they say is the reason they cannot provide any proof of wrongdoing by the IRS in targeting conservative groups such as the tea party. For anyone who is willing to believe all of these coincidences and take them as fact, you have just proven the IRS and the Obama administration correct.
It would seem that condolences are due, as well, for the families of many of the members of Congress. Most, it seems, have been neutered and lost their spine, their guts are missing and a good part of their brains has been scrambled. They are a pitiful lot; please wish them a speedy recovery. Please remember to vote accordingly when the time comes.
Some may not be too concerned about the happenings in our great country throughout past years, but please consider this: If you don’t agree with the tea party or other conservative groups who would like only to see the loss of our liberties stopped and the government act in accordance with the constitution the way it was originally intended, you should reconsider. You may not think this affects you, but it affects every man, woman and child in this country and all those born in the future. If you won’t wake up and act for yourself, then do it for your children and grandchildren. You owe them that much.
This administration has provided a constant supply of scandals and cover-ups; when one scandal gets too hot for them to handle, they don’t have long to wait for another scandal to come out and cloud the issues. There are so many cover-ups going on at this time, it is difficult to keep track of them all. Sadly, this appears to be what Team Obama prefers. There is so much smoke, it is statistically impossible for there not be fire, and the constant refusal to provide information to investigators on all of these cover-ups points to guilt beyond any reasonable doubt.
There is an election coming up this year. It is time for America to wake up. Apathy is not an option, and an educated voter is required. You must do your homework, get the facts and research the actions, the record and the integrity of those you are considering. Integrity is something missing in government, and it must be replaced. Sound bites and talking points don’t count, only facts and actions.
Some students are choosing to chart their own course after graduation, bucking the conventional path of college or trade school, but with no less ambition than their degree-seeking peers. Moffat County High School senior Tyler Gonzales is one such student, who has chosen to dive into a full-time job at Chaos Ink after graduating and feed his passion for design and entrepreneurialism.
