It’s Sept. 11 at 8:46 a.m., when the first plane hit the first tower. I’m driving around the City of Tonawanda and I’m wondering why the flags at McDonald’s are at half-staff but the flags at the schools are all still flying high. It’s kind of a disgrace.

Has anyone ever seen a resume for any of these elected or running to be elected Republicans in North Tonawanda? What qualifications do they have besides the ability to be fast talkers, dress up pretty for the camera for never-ending news announcements, and most important to cow tow to the county party leaders?

In 1935, Franklin D. Roosevelt introduced Social Security. Congress and the Senate were controlled by the Democrats and it passed. Republicans voted this bill down in the House and Senate. In 1965, Lyndon B. Johnson introduced Medicare. Congress and the Senate were controlled by the Democrats and it passed. Republicans voted this bill down in the House and Senate. In 2009 Barack Obama introduced a bill called the Affordable Health Care Act or “Obamacare.” The Republicans voted against it. Think about this, no Social Security, no Medicare. I ask our seniors, can you live without them?
