the city for the lights and courthouse downtown, it’s beautiful to drive down through town.

Onions to

the county snow plows for damaging countless mailboxes.

not realizing a $15 dollar federal minimum wage will very likely increase unemployment because many employers can’t afford it.

the speeding mufflerless car racing down North Marr Road at 5:45 every morning waking up the entire neighborhood and no law enforcement to ever stop it.

not realizing it’s better to hear an honest “I don’t know” than guess after guess after guess just to make thousands off your insurance company.

the barely-elected congressional leader for his shameful revenge campaign.

the continued legislative efforts to defund public education.

the recent introduction of laws that continue to criminalize decisions that belong with an individual, with families and/or with their health care provider.

laws that are being introduced that try to own someone’s body.

the former congressional leader who denied and refused two people assigned to the Jan. 6 committee for spite.

Happy Birthday to
