What’s next for us from our government?

To the editor:

We got a half-baked apology from our President for the mess we are in now. Let’s see how we get out of this one (Olley!). It should prove to be interesting.

It just goes to show how much he really knows about what is going on with these bills.

Now the FDA is trying to say that we should have zero transfat. I guess the grocery stores are really going to be busy. I think they need to be more involved with the bad medication out on the shelves and less on the foods. We can do diets and pick healthy foods ourselves, thank you Mr. FDA.

You know it is bad enough we have to say “Happy Holidays” instead of what we want. And it is bad enough we can’t say the “Pledge” in some schools. Now the government  wants our kids to read books that detail other religions in our classrooms instead of what our Nation fought for.

I don’t see anything wrong with this but it has nothing of Christian religion. Now, if we can’t say the Pledge or wish someone a “Merry Christmas,” is this a little hypocritical?

What is wrong with us all? Have we lost our spine? Are we too gutless? Or too nice and understanding?

Well, it’s time to stand up and say enough is enough! We need to take our United States back. Pray in school, say our Pledge, do what I did as a kid growing up.

If we offend people, do as we have to do now. Leave the room or just keep quiet!
