thank you during storm

Those who don’t really care about the vulnerable populations (seniors and poor people) in this nation don’t want our thanks. Those horribly over-paid “elected public servants” in the US Congress don’t need our thanks. They don’t want it either.

They’re being thanked and $pon$ored by their wealthier constituents, those who benefit so much more than the 18 to 20 million people who’ll lose health insurance under the weasel’s American Health Care Act.

broken system

  • Wonder how many scheduled meetings and event will be canceled this week?  We just received out first cancellation in an email.
  • But it’s another full page of letters with comments about changing the property tax system, climate change, the left-wing Democratic party and … noticeably …  a few more letters condemning the current POTUS.
