Election Day is just around the corner. Political advertising has reached a fever pitch. Nothing is off-limits or deemed a low blow. Who do you believe? What is truth and what is campaign trail scat? What is the candidates’ platform and history? Just the facts please so an educated decision can be made.
To help, I have given each candidate a half page, 800 words or so, to tell us in “their words” why we should elect or reelect them. No negativity or mudslinging, just what they have done, what they stand for and what they hope to accomplish if elected. I made the offer to everyone running from the state level up. Sorry, just not enough pages to cover each local election although I would like to.
The candidates have been very easy to work with and the offer was well received. I made sure they knew no negativity and no one submitted anything requiring editing or my scrutiny. Thank you to all the candidates.
So please take the time to read and educate yourself for the upcoming election. Your vote matters more now than at any other point in American history. Please don't just plan on pulling the party lever. Our future is not about the Rs and Ds; it's about electing the best American for the job, who will do the best job for America.
Your vote is your way of exercising democracy. Value your vote and what it stands for. Remember all that has been sacrificed by so many American servicemen and women to first gain the right to vote and throughout our history to preserve this right.
A vote should never be cast for what is best for an individual, a political party, a union, organization or business. Your vote should be cast for the person that will provide the best leadership to guarantee freedom, democracy and betterment of Country.
A larger government, more government involvement and the largest number of Americans dependent on state and federal assistance. This is what has been created by voting for self over Country.
This is not the democracy our forefathers had in mind.
“Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve either one.” - Ben Franklin.
Mr. Franklin and our American forefathers realized that freedom and democracy must be kept pure. Individuals seeking a larger government, a government for personal gain, or seeking financial security from the government, would be the greatest threat to our Country. Amazing they had it right almost 250 years ago. Get out and vote and God Bless America.
I Forgot the Bullets
I received several calls wondering how to take me up on my offer for ladies to learn to shoot or improve their shooting skills.
Sorry about that ladies. I want every one of you to empower yourself. I want you to be able to defend yourself, family and property. To understand the safe handling and operation of a firearm.
So, as I have offered before, I will pay $50 toward the beginner’s course or for the furthering of your shooting skills. You must start with the beginner’s course however. No gimmicks, no question. I want you to learn to shoot or become a better shot!
Tripoli's Triggers is my partner in what I like to call “Guns and Roses.” Mr. Tripoli and his staff have done a great job. He is proud of the ladies we put through his course the first time and is quick to tell me how accurate they can shoot after completing just three hours of training with the staff.
Ladies if you are over 60 years young this offer does not apply. I will pay the full amount for you to learn safe handling and shooting skills. Gentleman, as always, ladies first. I will have another offer for you after the New Year.
So, here is all you need to do, give Mr. Tripoli a call 570–326-4181. He will take care of the rest. So gather up the girls, have a ladies night out and learn a skill for a lifetime.
A Wonderful Lady
Rosemary Neidig left us this past week to be with the Lord. You will never meet a nicer, kinder lady then Rosemary. She faced more tragedy and adversity than any of us should have to face. Her spirit, compassion and love of others was obvious to everyone. She truly loved and cared about people.
Rosemary enjoying writing her column and we were blessed to have her in the pages of Webb Weekly. She had a special bond with her readers. A bond built out of her sharing of tragedy, troubles and adversity of life. Things everyone could relate to and understand.
Rosemary also pointed out all the good in God's world; the small things we overlook, the milestones of life’s journey, the importance of today and to not take anything for granted. Thank you, Rosemary, we will miss you. God Bless and my sympathy to the family, friends and loved ones of this special lady.
