I spend a lot of time with people who, like me are older than dirt.
Most of the old folks think blowing up airplanes is so awful, they say they cannot do anything to stop it so they will not fly again.
Well, said I what happens if the plane over your house, or over your town when it blows!
That makes it your affair.
Do you know who is in charge of stopping illegal entry into this country?
Well you better find out. You need to care.
The people you put in office, the folks in charge of your safety are asleep at the switch.
The nice thing about being old and retired, we have a lot of time to think and most of all, to vote someone in who will do what needs to be done to ensure the safety of all of us.
There is not a lot of things good about growing old, but having time to think, and going out to vote is one of them.
Why worry about voting this time of year? Well, how about the people who run your city?
Are you happy with all of them?
Remember the president started working for his city.
Don’t I wish someone had voted against him then.
Think about this you and other "ol" friends can change the fate of this country by stopping some of these scoundrels before they rise to the high office, or have the power to wreck the whole country.
Do you go to city council meetings?
Does the city council suit you?
Did you think there is a chance your vote will change things, and if nothing else, run for city council yourself?
My cousin ran for office, and won by six votes. It just happens there were six registered voters in our family!!
You never know how many friends you have until you need them..
Well, little bird, I am doing the best I can, voting and encouraging you to do more than me!
Obominable, like Hitler, could have been stopped at the city level, of course someone else would be running the country, it might be the anti-Christ.
I once had my favorite editor, (I pray for her health and hope she sometimes remembers me) say "Jon, it seems you are looking for the anti-Christ."
Well, I told her, my lord will be close behind him. I would like to be here for that.
Remember, you can sometimes express an opinion that will change the slant or method of governing you, maybe your vote will change our nation for the better.
Each time I write this little column, I hope someone reads it and enjoys JON’S VU!!!
