The secular progressive liberal press and media (formerly the Democratic Party’s press and media) continues its outrageous assault on the GOP, which of course fits their agenda.
I agree with the comment that the GOP is fractured. It’s because we have different groups looking for better ways to “save our republic.”
Democrats are not fractured because they believe in only one thing, “big government,” central control doing away with individual’s rights and states’ rights. Don’t believe it, or don’t want to believe it.
I have commented before about the GOP and it’s position on unions. I, for one, do not oppose the “older unions” working with individual companies to gain fair wages, benefits and safe working conditions. I oppose government unions. They were formed by liberals and are now used by secular progressives to serve their agenda.
Now, I would like to express my appreciation of the Chicago mayor’s viewpoint on gun control. He does have a right to complain about the large number of murders in Chicago. But, note the state of Illinois has the strongest gun laws on the books in the country. How well has this worked for Chicago?
It does appear to be working in other parts of our state, where the majority of legal gun owners live. Could it be that owning a gun legally and following your Constitutional rights have made it safer for you?
Don’t use self-checkouts
Apparently, everyone in our government was asleep at the wheel as company after company left this country and put whole towns out of work, shifting those jobs to Third-World nations for more profit. They should have been told, “Fine, but when your product re-enters this country you will be charged a entry fee, to compensate for all the unemployment your government now has to pay out.”
But, we are still asleep at the wheel, and I mean every citizen. Unemployment is a huge problem. Yet, what do we do? We daily put more people out of work in our own town.
Every time you go into a self-checkout lane you are putting people out of work. Yet, like lemmings going over a cliff, I see more and more people do just that.
Do you get even 10 percent off for checking yourself out and bagging your own items? No, you get nothing, but you do give more profit to that company.
At the post office, I was asked if I wanted to learn to use the self-mailing station, I said “no thanks.”
Maybe you don’t care until it is your job a kiosk takes. If this keeps up we will be a nation of unemployed citizens, with computers doing all our jobs and rich fat cats enjoying all the profits off our stupidity.
