I recall back in the late 1940s to early 1950s, a so-called expert warned us that the planet was about to tip upside down. His studies revealed the ice cap on the south pole was growing at such an alarming rate that Earth was going to go out of balance and go topsy-turvy. He suggested we use the atomic bomb to melt the ice. Of course we didn't, and nothing happened. I think he was only selling books.
Now we have global warming - an invention of sneaky politicians. Its agenda is to shut down our standard of living. I read the front page story from April 12 on Professor McPherson's presentation at the Fredonia Grange. I gathered from it that we should all return to the Stone Age. This seems to be what a lot of our politicians in Washington are telling us. Some of our states are getting in the act, also.
Our President has already taken action. He has stopped drilling for oil in this country, shut down power plants, and shut down our coal mines. He and his kind are trying to convince us that solar panels and wind mills can take their place. Only a very stupid person would believe that. There are college professors who don't live in the real world who brain wash our children into thinking their parents are stupid, stuck in religion, and are money hungry. I don't care how McPherson chooses to live. He can have his goats, his plot of ground, garden, and whatever else he lives in. As for me, I'll keep my standard of living as long as I can.
I am so sick of Obama's lies. What American would go to countries where our young men and women gave their lives and blood to save us and then bad mouth America? He should be impeached on that alone and his racist Attorney General with him as he hates white people. I love my country as it was and not as Obama wants it and is making it.
Good people from Forestville
Within the month of March someone decided to defend the honor of the village of Forestville with reports of good things happening in the village in a commentary.
It goes without saying that people, in general, do things to contribute to their communities, but many times the accolades wait until these honorable persons leave the earth. Noticing the defense of some municipal workers, the complaints by others need not be diminished since improvement on the job would be an expectation (salary increases would be justified). On numerous occasions, I have stated that and have put in writing without anything being done. As I continue my "Occupy" Forestville effort, it is absolutely necessary for accountability, transparency and a willingness to improve via public comment despite the uneasiness of certain "inner circle movers and shakers."
As for excellence in Forestville, you can look to the past and praise the exceptional service of Grace Abbey (fundraiser for the municipal building along with teaching and an adroit business woman), Belle Campbell (Honor Society named after her) and Dr. Eleanor Burnside (check with the town of Hanover historian for details). Mentioning these three women brings to mind this month of Women's History Month.
Finally, the village of Forestville is included in the Forestville School District (3,500 people) and the unparalleled effort by a woman who has contributed her services for 20 years goes without saying. Being a modest person, her name is known for service and this 20th year when $20,000 was raised gives plenty of kudos for the school district people. Bravo and job well done to all who contributed! As you can see, doing good needs no name.
