Talk of the County: The Amish, Hobby Lobby and Obama’s library

The road less traveled

I think Peter Baker could teach a few lessons on road construction to Curran Construction. Peter Baker has been working in Wadsworth doing a very fast efficient job on Chicago Avenue. Now Curran is in its third year of construction on Delany Road in Wadsworth and it’s been a nightmare.

What’s up with Amish?

The Amish somehow have complete religious freedoms and go by their own laws within their own properties. They don’t have to contend with Obamacare, legal schooling or women and children’s rights. They reap the harvest of safety and protection but won’t take part in our government. Why do they have a pass from the U.S. government while the rest of us pay the price?

A Link to Success

This is concerning entitlements in this country and how they are getting out of hand. I saw a kid with the $400 cell phone, buying junk food with his Link card, and his mom was driving a Mercedes. Ask them how they feel about welfare entitlement. They would scream bloody murder if you tried to take a nickel from them.

Try being color-blind

In response to all the negative comments about our president. Why don’t we ever read comments about white presidents of the past. Hoover was gay, the Kennedys were womanizers, Nixon resigned over the Watergate scandal and Clinton was impeached for adultery. Stop disrespecting our president, equal means equal. Don’t forget a white president sent us into war.

Great Wall of USA

This comment is in regard to the children coming across our borders from Mexico and other places. I don’t know who’s in charge of this country anymore but the solution is to build a wall. Please, build the wall. They could fix this problem if every state sent some unemployed bricklayers down to the border to begin building a double wall around the entire country. The National Guard from each state should be sent down to the border for security purposes while they’re building this wall. When the first bricklayers gets to the border the word will travel fast and more and more bricklayers from each state will come to get it done. This is the only way to solve the problem of immigration at the border.

Lobby against Hobby

I haven’t bought anything from Hobby Lobby for years because of their attitude about recycling. They will give out millions of plastic bags but they will not pay to have them recycled.

Obama’s library

It’s true that every president gets a presidential library and, for the majority, private donors have paid for these libraries. Evidently, the person who made the comment in the TOTC failed to read the small print regarding the Obama Library. President Obama wanted the “folks,” as he likes to refer to all of us, to pay for his library and wasn’t going for private donors. Rahm Emanuel even said that he wanted taxpayers to pay for this library. His reasoning is that the taxpayers will get so much back from all the visitors that will come to Chicago to buy hot dogs, popcorn and sodas while they visit the library. Get your facts straight pal. They want the people, the “folks,” to pay for this and I’m not having it.
