‘Do not call’ losing its effectiveness
For years, I have received myriad unsolicited telephone calls, but the funniest is “Bridget” informing me she has a very important message about my credit card interest rates. The funny thing is, I don’t have any credit card debt, and I have not over the course of my life ever paid interest because I pay them off as they come in. There are many other callers with helpful information — all scammers, of course. I have reported them to the “Do Not Call” program, but nothing happens. I am crippled, and getting to the phone is not that easy most of the time. Sometimes, I wonder why we even have a government, if it is powerless.

Guns hold America hostage
Until we decide all lives matter and really do something to stop the proliferation of guns, we will continue to suffer from the malady of the Second Amendment. Laws exist, but unfortunately, too many are not enforced or adhered to. No one wants to buck the NRA, so we continue to have slaughters almost on a weekly basis. Fearless leaders have to come forward and lead us to a place where the mentally impaired and the terrorist are not able to so easily acquire and use guns. We are in grave danger of being the leader in the world of too many deaths due to the easy accessibility of guns by so many people.
