Danger in complacency
Complacency and greed of some Americans are allowing our freedoms to disappear one by one. Why don’t we just open our country, let our guns be taken away, be killed because of our religious belief let our country be in turmoil and us be brutalized because we have different religious beliefs. We will be like Third World countries.
Be a voice to keep your freedom. Be different. Tweet, text, Facebook and shout out loud for your freedom of what you believe. My God is creator of all the earth and everything in it and he still sustains everything to this day. I believe Jesus is the son of God and God says when we believe Jesus died on the cross to take our sins away we will have eternal life with him. I have a complete Bible with 66 proven books written by Godly inspired men who leave nothing out of what God wants us to know. It tells about our relationships with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. When the Bible is read, God inspires us to know what he reveals to us through his word.
Judas betrayed Jesus with a kiss. Did Al Gore betray his country by selling a television network to al Jazeera? Are we going to be like China, Germany and the Soviet Union and let gun control take our right to bear arms away?
From what I can tell, the shootings in schools, theaters and other incidents of mass murder is the lack of helping and recognizing those with severe mental illness who put us at risk more than us having guns. If these types of shootings are influencing your decision to have gun control, think again and see that our medical system’s inadequacy has contributed to the gun violence, not the guns.
Don’t let complacency allow our country to invite those who want one religious belief for us all to take over.
Black Branch Road
I’m writing concerning North Black Branch Road. It’s been closed for well over a year because of the new Flex Films plant.
When first closed, it was to be re-opened around April of last year. There are many, like myself, who used that road regularly to save gas when going to and from town, or to work at other plants on that road, etc. The closing has been an inconvenience for many. There have been many rumors as to for why it’s taking so long.
Finally, we reached an official who said it’s now in the hands of the railroad, which is waiting put crossing lights or whatever by the tracks that go to Flex. I don’t really know when that will be.
Right now they have concrete barriers keeping traffic from traveling on North Black Branch Road. Maybe they should block the train tracks, instead, and let us have right of way. I think things would get done faster if they did.
