Letter to the Editor: Opinions on Obamacare, the jail, July 4
I have heard so many negative things about Obamacare. I hope this offends no one, but if it makes the insurance premiums cheaper for people with pre-existing conditions, know what I say? Bring it on! If not this, what do you readers prescribe?
Another subject I want to comment on is the regional jail. I feel the protesters should accept the fact it is going to be built, and put their energies elsewhere. I do, however, think it was wrong for them to try to be "barred" from speaking, no pun intended.
I have a fantastic idea! I propose that the Fourth of July be celebrated permanently on a Monday. I realize to literally have the Fourth on a Monday would be impossible, because it falls on different days of the week. However, we could call it Independence Day, and celebrate it on the first Monday of July. This is the way a lot of the holidays are celebrated. This way, for those people who like to travel, they could have another three-day weekend, like Memorial Day and Labor Day. I am so surprised no one has brought this idea to people's attention.
In closing, I would like to say that when I become the first Shenandoah County resident to become president of these great 50 states and get my Diet Soda Party movement established, this will be one of my first pieces of legislation signed into law.
God bless America!
