With the extremely high personal property taxes, high fuel taxes, doubled registration fees, and the ridiculous MVI fees there is no good reason for this state to have such deplorable roadways.

When the students have more common sense than the educators, it might be time to rethink the education system.

The president accomplished his goal by proposing the citizenship question. He drew out the people who actually hate the US and what it stands for. He knows that non-citizens either would have lied, or not sent in the census form. He didn’t “lose” anything.

As an 86-year-old Recovering Republican with an Engineering Degree, and an Executive MBA, one who had major corporate clients making strategic global decisions, and one when dealt with major issues of climate change and equally fair economic environmental policies, and caring for our children’s healthcare and future, I have never imagined or seen anyone so incompetent, a blatant racist a dangerous and ignorant bigot as the current occupant of the White House.
