Onions to …

• anyone that thinks we should stand for a country that is trying its best to reach us with a bomb.

• rude people that snap and pop gum in an office setting.

• Columbus for not having a noise ordinance with any consequence, because a new neighbor’s heavy bass music disturbs the peace despite calls to police.

• the woman who is going from parking lot to parking lot all over town scamming for gas money.

• motorists who cannot tell the difference between the roadside and a trash can.

• any person aspiring to be a politician/lawmaker who can’t decide if the right thing to do is the rule of law or lawlessness.

• politicians who think rewarding criminals for breaking our laws is OK, because amnesty is rewarding crime.

• people who don’t understand there are three sides to a story: my side, your side and the truth.

• those who fight for their interpretation of the Second Amendment versus working for common-sense changes to help prevent the slaughter of innocent school children.

• the politicians who take NRA money and make hollow promises about gun control and do nothing about the killing of children and adults.
