Why is it do you think that the GOP is so silent when the "Trumpster" insults immigrants, disparages John McCain, insults the female gender in toto, but is outraged when he goes after a Fox anchor who is a media darling of the right? Seems as if the insults are directed to those they care little about, they are tolerated, but when it happens to one of their own? Well, that's something else again.
Now as to texting and driving. Our Mayor says that is something that the state should take up. Which when you think about it is kind of contrary to wanting less government involvement, or wanting smaller government. The facts are that the state did try to do something about it but Gov. Goodhair vetoed it, as did his successor. however, if it is wanting smaller government, well Mr Mayor, it doesn't get any smaller than you. You have no direct say in how the city is run, that is Mr. Willard's job. You are one of only 6 voice in a policy board that is supposed to set the tone for the city. As someone who championed city health, apparently the health of our children in cars, as well as our loved ones of all ages, is not of concern to you to take a stand. How sad. Please stop hiding behind some political philosophy and actually do something for the citizens of Longview. Please.
