Missing eagle statue recovered
Job 1 with congressmen is to get re-elected. To accomplish this, they need to know what we want them to do. Things in Washington, D.C., are hectic right now, so this is a good time to write or call our congressman with suggestions. Forsyth County is fortunate to have two young congressmen who seem willing to listen.
Make a list. My list is 1. Balance the federal budget. Tax everyone as needed. Pay the bills. Get it done. 2. Get out of Afghanistan. 3. Get manufacturing of consumer goods back to our state and shores. 4. Bring defense spending under control. 5. Do something about the medical industry, they are eating us alive.
If everyone gets additional tax to balance the budget, they might be mad as heck and that will be a good thing. We certainly need more passion and local participation in these big issues.
