A very big, dark, political cloud closed in around me, while I was busy “getting by.” The daily chores of financial survival kept me too busy to notice the following.
I was talking to my pop this morning and he said,” did you see today’s headline in the little local paper.”
I had not so he summarized the story that followed this local head line:
Go ahead and click that I dare ya.
While I understand their concerns, I am still reeling from their decision. So, please forgive my lack of words. I’m stunned.
This decision has nothing to do with our “girls”. It is, however, just a hop skip and jump away. What thoughtless things are going on in my township? Very scary.
Obviously, the councilmen that voted against have had the luxury of full, comfortable employment.
That’s right I say luxury. A job is a privilege and not a right. Obviously, they have not gone to bed hungry so their child did not. Obviously, my brain is going to explode.
It is apparent that their eyes are wide shut to the world events around them. I am deeply saddened and shamed by them.
I want to shake them and yell,” engage your brain!”
Why not offer town courses in chicken keeping. You county extension agricultural agent was extensively trained, by your own tax dollars for just this sort of teaching. A clean, well maintained chicken coop has very little odor. Education, folks, not ignorance will get us through tough times.
Aw, they don’t like how the chicken coop looks? Then teach people, help them create a structure you can tolerate. Hold a covered dish chicken coop building party, where everyone helps according to their skill.
I would rather see a neighbor’s truly hideous coop built from scrap than try to fall asleep at night knowing they might be going to bed hungry.
Shame on you, councilmen. I was always proud of my little town. Now, I am truly ashamed.
Again, forgive the poor writing. I’m just too angry to even be able to collect my thoughts in a clear, concise manner.
I’m sorry that tonight waiting-for-payday recipe may be a little late. I need to settle down first. Check for others in the category at the right.
Has this happened in your town?
