We hated Obama,’ but never resorted to attacks

Since major networks use such vitriol against President Trump, while ignoring Democrat red flags, no wonder Democrats hate him!

Democrats only goal is impeachment from Day One.

Ironically the very things Democrats accuse him of are the very things they are doing, but media parrots their condemnations. If President Trump had a ham sandwich named after him, Democrats would impeach it!

President Trump accomplished many campaign promises but how would you know with his 90% negative coverage? The economy is thriving. September jobs report again showed the economy is strong. Hispanic and African-American unemployment remains at record lows. Unemployment dropped to 3.5%, the lowest in 50 years.

We hated Obama too, but we never resorted to attacking them, as they have with Trump supporters even at restaurants. Conservative speakers invited to speak at universities are shouted down by liberal students and deny their free speech. Huge Trump crowds in Minneapolis were met with Antifa protesters. Who’s going low?

The brouhaha over President Trump talking to the Ukraine president about Vice President Joe Biden’s involvement has been made into an impeachable offense, but if you read the text, it isn’t. They ignore the video of Biden bragging how he succeeded having the Ukraine prosecutor fired.

All 20 presidential candidates want socialism, promising everything will be free. Socialism promises prosperity but delivers poverty, while capitalism brings more people out of poverty. An example is Venezuela.

Boat Parade needs community support

The Venice Christmas Boat Parade is rapidly approaching.

I am not on the Parade Board but I have been in the parade now for seven years. It is my opinion that we have one of the best parades and viewing areas in the state. It is exciting when the folks lined up on both sides of the Intracoastal cheer as we pass. A feeling I will never forget!

Viewing the parade is a wonderful night with your family that costs nothing.

This brings me to my point. I am asking for more support from the crowds, the Boat Parade needs donations. As far as I know, other than donations from the corporate sponsors, there have not been any contributions by the public to support this parade. The boaters that put the parade on do so at their own expense.

Other than a few small prizes and an awards dinner, the boaters receive nothing. Venice Boat Parade does not profit a single red cent from the donations given.

Parade costs include permits, insurance, porta potties, etc. Money left over goes to community organizations such as All Faith Food Bank, Venice Boy Scouts, Venice Youth Boating and scholarships to Venice High School.

Anything helps. For the price of a cup of coffee at a Starbucks, you can support this parade.

The webpage is: www.venicechristmasboatparade.com.

Help us continue to make this the wonderful event that it has become! If you have a boat participate, it is addicting!

An opinion on college, education

One originally went to college to get an education. College athletics were to be extracurricular activities for students pursuing a degree.

Just look where greed, selfishness, love of money and near insanity has taken “attending college” in so many cases.

What has happened to should-shouldn’t, right-wrong, rational-irrational, honestly-dishonesty in this country anymore?
