District boundries should not consider anything but the number of people in it. People are all equal, race, (other than human) country of origin (we are all US citizens) have nothing to do with it. Any opinion other than that, is in my opinion a racist one.

I agree, I love beef. The problem is that the cost of it has increased 12% from last year. I also, don't see it leveling off. So, beef is going to be off the table or at least reduced in my home. Now, I don't blame the ranchers. Their costs have increased, as has the cost to transport and…

As to Countries that we send our military to assure our and the worlds interest, that sir is not sending illegal immigrants with diseases to violate their borders. It is to get rid of those that are killing others, stopping trade, or other both world interests. And, yes, there have been t…

We do welcome, legal immigrants. Those people follow our laws. They don't invade another Country, break their laws. Now, you also say that we are all immigrants, but, my ancestors came here about 100 years before there was a United States. So, we are pretty much native to the nation. We f…

Figuring out that what they say about anything is a flat out lie is not difficult. "We won't leave a single US Citizen in Afghanistan." "Our border isn't open." "There is no border crisis." "We don't check for COVID or require vaccine because they (the illegal aliens invading) aren't inte…

The courts and the Federal LEO's should note, that if redress is denied through the courts, then the only redress available to any victim, or their families is through the use of the 2nd amendment right. Not the best way to handle it, but the abuser would never be able to do that again. S…

You want it lower calorie? Substitute sugar used with either a banana, or unsweetened applesauce. To get the taste of the brown sugar a teaspoon of molasses will do the trick. Also, sugar free maple syrup.

You mention take alternate routes for the back ups on 46. I haven't found any. That is the problem. There needs to be a completion of a loop, or parallel route to I35, that crosses the rivers. Construction on I35, is necessary, but should have been done after the other options were made a…

I like the 22 student limit, but it is making a law that does not allow flexibility thus has the unintended consequence of making it more expensive to teach students. The law should be stating that there needs to be an adult to student ratio of 12 to 22. One credentialed teacher, and clas…
