Going political on my birthday

June 28, 2014
By MARGARET VALONE , Observer Today

As you read this column, I will be celebrating my birthday. I'm going to do myself a favor and get out all the frustration I have over the political situation as it is today. When political parties call me up for support, I tell them, "you're lucky that I'm as old as I am or I'd start a third party!" I mean it! The Republicans support the greedy rich and the Democrats are giving away the store! Their immigration policy (or the lack of one - a real policy) is unreal. Then the welfare program is ridiculous! They can't expect to have everything working people have! They need help, yes, but we lived on bread and peaches during the Depression and look how long I've lived and I didn't sit on my hands. Don't get me wrong. I don't expect them to live on bread and peaches. We did that because we didn't want to go on welfare!
