We all need something to forget tough times

I read Wally’s May 8 column and had to agree about his assertion that things are so bad that it causes people to drink.

I definitely agree about government deficit and debt. It was bad in 2008 after President Bush spent too much money. Then, Obama came riding in decrying the amount of money that Bush spent and vowed to cut the debt in half. Well, he has proceeded to spend billions of dollars more than George Bush and pushing the debt over $16 trillion. This spending like a drunken Democrat that Obama has done was very predictable so I am guessing Wally voted for McCain in 2008 and Romney in 2012?

I also agree with Wally about population migration. This country cannot absorb 12 million or more illegal immigrants that will now become citizens that collect welfare and use our resources. Since Obama has advocated for amnesty to illegal immigrants, I am guessing that he did not vote for Obama in 2008 and 2012 because he would not want a president that advocated for making millions of illegal immigrants automatic citizens overnight.

Let me add a couple more things to the list of things that cause people to drink. A president and secretary of state named Hillary Clinton that lied and covered up a very predictable terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya. This terrorists attack occurred on 9/11/2012, on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and just weeks before a presidential election. President Obama and Secretary Clinton lied and covered up about this attack in order to be re-elected. But I know this type of presidential conduct would leave a bad taste in Wally’s mouth and he would never vote for a president that would lie about a horrific event like this where Americans lost their lives unnecessarily.

Then, the last thing that I would like to add to Wally’s list of things that would cause people to drink is the Dr. Gosnell trial in Philadelphia. Dr. Gosnell was an abortion doctor that would murder a baby in the operating room that survived an abortion. I am guessing there are no doctors in the Enumclaw-Buckley area that would condone that type of “medical practice.” And I am guessing Wally is a genuinely nice guy that has a soul and would not condone that type of “medical practice.” However, our President Obama voted “yes” to a law in Illinois which would make it legal for abortion doctors in Illinois to murder a baby that survived an abortion.

As far as global warming and deforestation, I really don’t know what he is talking about. Trees are renewable and the Chicken Littles of this world have sounded a false alarm about the end of the world due to global cooling, global warming and global climate change.

On the other issues, Wally is right. It is time for a beer or two to help me forget the tough times we are living in. At least me and Wally didn’t vote for it.
