Poetic observation

Ode to Trump:

Round like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel,

Never ending or beginning on an ever-spinning reel,

Like a snowball down a mountain, or a carnival buffoon,

Like a video that is showing a very sick cartoon,

The lies they just keep growing with collusion intertwined

Like the circles that you find in the windmills of his mind!

Plagiarized from a song by Dusty Springfield.

Look at big picture

Those of you who read this page know my stand on gun control and the Second Amendment. The disaster in Sutherland Springs was horrible. Before reading this piece I want you to pull up Breitbart.com. It will show you how many opportunities there were that would have kept Kelley away from the Sutherland Springs Baptist church.

Many of you want there to be more easy gun controls up to those who want total confiscation of all firearms and ammunition, with the exception of police and military.

If the IRS can control our money, why can't the FBI control our criminals, especially the insane ones like Kelley. We can build a huge prison for the criminally insane. I think U.S. taxpayers will be happy to pay to get mass murderers off the streets.

Better communications between all police and mental institutions is a beginning.

Then there needs to be a way for the public to contact the FBI when they become afraid and are suspicious about someone's activities.

I understand that Kelly was after his in-laws he thought were in the church. When he saw they weren't there, I think his rage made him take it out on anyone in the church. The anti-gunners need to look at the big picture and realize that the criminally insane are pulling the trigger, not you and me.

No common ground

I am not OK with mass killings. Leonard Pitts, one of your columnists, says I and other like me are OK with it! He says he has written about every mass killing that has happened and he will not stop bloviating about the latest church killing in Texas.

Needless to say, I find no common ground between Mr. Pitts and myself ... especially on the subject of current events. He is consistent in his racial biases and his liberal feelings.

He would do better to write about Florida news, which is his base of operations. I am continually affronted by his op-ed know-it-all offerings.
