Read the

Mueller report

In view of comments I either hear or read from different sources, it’s apparent that there is a very wide gap between people on both sides of the political spectrum.

The one thing I think we all have in common is preserving our democracy, so no matter what side you take I strongly suggest you read the Mueller report. It might take you a few days like it did me, but it is well worth it.

The way I see it is that obstruction and conspiracy were intertwined. Mueller placed them in two volumes, but he was also clear about the fact that people lied or hid evidence (obstruction) about which he made no conclusion, intending to punt it to Congress.

It also makes conspiracy beyond a reasonable doubt difficult to prove. Mueller explicitly states that he was handcuffed by Office of Legal Council policy.

But he provided a road map for high crimes and impeachment, for which one needs only the preponderance of evidence. Mueller supplies us with both conspiracy and obstruction in a devastating report.

To all his supporters, read it and then compare it with Attorney General Barr’s misinformation. Notice how Trump has switched from declaring victory and praising Mueller to witch hunt and nonsense. That’s why he vowed to block Congress at every turn.

I just hope in the long run we elect leaders who can bring us together, not drive us apart. Take care and God Bless.

County deserves

better leadership

Let’s think about this. We’ve had a Sheriff blowing, on average, about a quarter of the county budget for nigh on to 20 years. I’ve publicly asked him, on multiple occasions, what he’s doing to be more efficient and his patent answer has consistently been “Nothing. Whatever they give me, I’m going to spend.”

Fast forward: The sheriff that has watched his charge, his facility, his responsibility, his jail, fall to rack and ruin, on his watch, now wants more money. That begs the question: What dotard, what imbecile, would not have saved against a rainy day or the inevitability that the facility he watched decay would need to be replaced?

We rely on the oversight of commissioners that have habitually failed us, since Mr. Moroski retired. I’ve dealt with two of them, personally, and would tell you they are junior politicians, not your representatives. You deserve better.

That said, I am weary. Being the last voice in the wilderness is tiring. Don’t ask me to write another article against the machine, write your own. Help me. We are legion, for we are many.

Join me, or watch what you love perish. For every one you write, I’ll write two. Together we can make change happen.
