    Where are the GOP jobs?
    The GOP proudly proclaims that “free markets, free enterprise, and entrepreneurship are the foundations for economic growth and job creation in America.” (Source: majorityleader.gov/jobs/hrp_jobs.pdf.)
    The GOP complains that “more taxation, regulations and litigation will not create jobs.” Therefore, they blame Washington (not the Democats) for the feeble economy. Well, Mr. Majority Leader, where are those jobs?

    Just the facts “Ma’am”
    Do you remember Sgt. Joe Friday from Dragnet and his tagline “Just the facts ma’am?”
    President Obama and his cohorts keep telling us that we need to raise taxes on only some of the American people in order to reduce the deficit. Remember, Democrats never suggest we balanced the budget, they only suggest we reduce the deficit. Let’s see what happens when we apply Joe Friday’s investigative approach to the rhetoric being put forth by the Obama Administration and Congressional Democrats.

    Road congestion
    Congestion on our roads costs the U.S. an estimated $145 billion annually in wasted time, repairs and operating expenses. That’s an unnecessary burden that our economy is in no shape to carry.
    Yet, Washington seems to be toying with short-term transportation plans and cuts to transportation funding. That’s no way to remedy America’s gridlock. Instead, Congress should pass a long-term (at least six years), well-funded surface transportation bill that allows for real road, bridge, rail and transit improvements.

    Volunteers to help out with pre-school?
    In these times of not enough money to fund all the pre-school programs and services that are necessary to help the less fortunate children in our society, it is important that parents and grandparents step up and volunteer their help.

    Killer of four motorcyclists going to prison
    On March 13, 2010 Paul Sermons got drunk, got into his truck, and decided to drive down County Road 476 in Sumter County. The traffic in front of him going slower than Sermons wanted, he began passing other vehicles. The two motorcycles coming in the other direction had no chance. Sermons hit both bikes ejecting all four riders; with one rider being launched into the windshield of the truck Sermons was passing. All the motorcyclists were killed.

    Thank you Terry Yoder and family
    The skies of Lake Panasoffkee were once again sparkling with the most beautiful display of fireworks for our country’s birthday.
    Thank you to the Yoder family for the wonderful celebration of patriotism you have shown our community. It was a stellar performance of entertainment for miles of viewers.
    I am also proud to say I have witnessed more homes displaying our flag during the July 4 weekend than ever before, even an entire row of homes in Tracy’s Point had flags all along their whole road.
