from April 2016, Culture
On Tuesday April 26th at 9:00 A.M. there will be a brief presentation of the “In God We Trust” plaque from the people to the County Commissioners. This event is open to the public. In February the Klamath County Commissioners approved the sign on a vote of 3-0 after overwhelming support by local residents.
There are now 616 city and county offices all over the U.S. displaying the National Motto — that is 100 more than when residents in Klamath County began this project last year.
On our ballots this May you will find Measure 18-105, which will make the production, access and distribution of marijuana/cannabis far more readily available to the general public in Klamath County.
All of the anonymous blog writers at KlamathNews.net urge a strong No vote on 18-105. If passed, there is nothing this ballot measure will do but make a few people a little richer while sending more of our citizens into a downward spiral of despair. Is that what we have now become? A people who are willing to profit and prey on the weakest among us in order to make a few bucks?
In addition, ask any of the three Sheriff’s candidates if they are in favor of this measure. See if they think crime will go up or down with the passage of 18-105. If you think the Sheriff’s budget is stretched thin now, just wait!
The left has done a magnificent job of twisting our English language to work in their favor. Instead of being taxed for education, we now “invest” in education — in Oregon that “investment” has led to a 68% graduation rate. Public “servants” compensation is often significantly more than an equivalent job in the private sector — you know, the people who pay the public servants salaries + benefits. Public safety no longer means watching out for yourself or your neighbor but instead arming and funding your local police like a mini-military.
One other term that the left has co-opted for their benefit is the idea of “compromise”.
The left has turned this word into a virtue, in and of itself. It doesn’t matter what the compromise is, it doesn’t matter where it leads, if you compromise, then you are person of virtue. To that I say horse-hockey!
