Milestones – Questions Worth Asking! – Opinion

The following is not my work or original and there are many questions being asked that deserve a read and your thoughtful answers. – MB

Ronald Reagan once said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

Why is it that so many people were more outraged about Britney Griner stuck in Russia than they were about Americans stranded in Afghanistan?

How is it that the government can’t control gasoline prices, but the weather is something they can fix? The most powerful governments on earth can’t stop a virus from spreading…but they say they can change the earth’s temperature if you pay more taxes.

Why were we told to lower our AC usage on hot days to prevent overwhelming the electric grid while simultaneously being told to trade in our gas cars for electric vehicles?

Why is canceling student debt a good idea? Does it make sense to reward people who do not honor their financial commitment by taxing the people who do?

Are we living in a time where intelligent people are silenced so that stupid people won’t be offended?

If your electric car runs out of power on the interstate, do you walk to a charging station to get a bucket of electricity?

Does it make sense to cut off oil, domestic or from allies, and buy it from an enemy who calls for your death?

Eliminating the production of 500,000 American barrels of oil a day to buy 500,000 barrels a day from Venezuela is simply…well…stupid.

I just got a full tank of gas for $22.  Granted, it was for my lawn mower, but I’m trying to stay positive.

If you don’t want to stand for the national anthem, perhaps you should give your legs to a veteran who lost his.

    Miles,
    .
    Thank you for showing your true colors for everyone to plainly see.
    .
    Now we all know that you still look fondly back upon Ronald Reagan despite what he did to our state and country. And that you think one must somehow choose between sympathy for an American suffering unjustly in a Russian prison and Americans in need of evacuation from Afghanistan.
    .
    And that you seem to not believe the scientific consensus that climate change is real or at least think that fighting climate change is “controlling the weather.” And that you seem to resent the inevitable and necessary shift to electric cars and shift from use of fossil fuels to renewably sourced electricity.
    .
    And that you think that relieving people of crippling student debt is only rewarding people who have not been paying off their debt.
    .
    And that you seem to not understand that tow trucks and other roadside assistance exist to help motorists who have stranded themselves without fuel.
    .
    And that you have a problem with American sourcing of oil from Venezuela because and that you think Venezuela has called for the death of America. Yet you seem to have no problem with America importing oil from Saudi Arabia despite Saudi support for Al Qaeda and the fact that almost all the 9/11 hijackers who massacred three thousand Americans came from Saudi Arabia.
    .
    And that you apparently believe adopting one specific body position during a specific song must be done in order to not disrespect anyone who has ever suffered while serving in our armed forces.
    .
    It is useful to have this primer on your national and international political views when evaluating how you and your publication write about local politics.
    .
    But I will be clear that I do not presume that the editors and writers on your publication’s staff share the above political views with you.

      I see you’re still living in your leftist, hate driven, dream world. All this turmoil you fondly desire is democrat propaganda. Gas is back to over $5.00 a gallon and you gleefully pay it. The only “positive” antics from the the current cartel in DC I see is housing prices are going up, but nobody can afford them. It’s all about control of the masses, and you just enjoy your brown suit and black armband.

      Buchser Alum-hole,
      Miles is simply just going to accuse you again of carry water for Lisa Gillmor.

      Buchser Alum-hole,
      Time to get off your soap box. You realize all your ranting and raving isn’t going to change a single person’s mind. Also, you forgot to place a major part of the blame on the 49ers.

    White privileged whitewash. The IPSV pamphlet was meant to be read and not smoked, pendejo!
