I had hoped we were better than that. But I have to admit I enjoyed the “Letter to the Editor” this week in which the lady writes that she has decided to vote FOR the people whose CCMD signs were being vandalized. Seems like Bill Ellis and Bob Cook have an enemy or two and if the one letter to the editor is correct it may work to their advantage. Wouldn’t that be justice!
I hesitate to say something again this week because when you read this the election will be over. I am sure there are people out there who have decided I was endorsing Ellis and Cook. I was not. Who I vote for is private but my desire for a nice, clean election is what I hoped for. In fact a friend of mine called and asked me if I wanted the golf course to close. Short answer? Absolutely not! In fact NOTHING any of the five candidates have said indicates they want the golf course to close. I think if any of them did, I probably wouldn’t be so neutral. That would not be good for the community.
What ticks me off about politics is that because of freedom of speech laws (which I love), people can say anything they want. For instance, the sign insinuating that Ellis and Cook want the golf course to close. I guess they might but they have never said anything of the sort. So don’t let facts get in the way.
I stopped and asked the gentleman who has the sign in his yard why he felt that way. He said that someone else asked if they could put the sign there and he said they could. He wouldn’t name the people who asked him. The gentleman was very nice, polite and truly seemed like an active citizen. I liked him. When I met him he was pulling weeds and jokingly offered to let me help. I remember wondering why he would put such an unattractive sign in such a nice yard. Wouldn’t it have been just as effective to promote the people you want elected?
Enough about signs. I still love being in this country, worrying about why elections can get so ugly and knowing we are still the best country to live in. Contrast the things I just talked about with a news release I saw today.
I guess the government in South Korea revealed Monday that it seized thousands of capsules filled with the powdered flesh of dead babies. The capsules are supposed to be a stamina boosting pill and are smuggled in from China.
The babies are chopped into pieces, dried in ovens, and turned into a powder. China has forced abortion. So far our government is just trying to make taxpayers pay for abortions. I guess selling dead baby pills makes a misleading or vandalized sign seem pretty insignificant. Unless next election someone puts up a sign saying one of the candidates sells dead baby pills. That would make it true wouldn’t it?
