We're living in a crazy world where good is bad & bad is good

To The Daily Sun,

I want to know why Obama and his administration does not arm the military? They should all be able to arm themselves against these so called nut jobs. Also, responsible people need to be armed to protect themselves against the radicals.

We are living in a crazy world where good is bad and bad is good. It makes no sense. We have the do-nothing Congress — the Senate and the House all doing the same thing. This is the new world order Obama has been put there to do what is happening today: destroying our country.

We got change all right. How do you like it so far? He was put in office for this purpose. We the people have no say. It seems only the older generation knows what is going on in the world. They are stopping free speech, religion, and just about anything else we can think of. The government is in our face on everything.

Now they want to put a tax on all your savings, IRA, and anything else we can do to save money. It will be a 15 percent tax on all of that. In other words, they are taking your money.

We need to start praying to God to heal us and our nation. Bring religion back again. Until then it will only get worse and not better. I know God is mad at his people. He is right. Look at everything today. Did you think you would ever see the likes of everything that is wrong today? I do not think so. God please bless us and America. I hope you will do the same.

The more engagement we have in our community, the more active coalition members we are in need of! There are so many ways to be involved, and we are grateful for whatever time your schedule allows. With each of us doing a little something it will, and already has been making a positive difference in our community! Each event we attend allows us to increase awareness about the very complex and often misunderstood issue of substance misuse. It allows us to share with our community the resources that are currently available, it helps us to mobilize and be a voice for changes that need to take place. And it shows our community WE CARE we value the need for prevention, intervention treatment and recovery.
