Speakout 6/21

This is about Memorial Park Cemetery. I would just like to add my comment about the upkeep of these cemeteries around here. My sister passed away in December 2002. Her husband passed away in March 2003. This is almost two-and-a-half years but the death dates have not been put on their markers. We have talked to the manager time-after-time-after-time and we get promises, but no death date. The grass is not mowed regularly and the markers are covered by grass. We were just wondering if there was any chance of the cemeteries taking over and making sure these cemeteries are something we could be proud of and not ashamed of.

The Michael Jackson case proves one thing and that is that if you are black and rich in the United States, you can do anything you want.

Ronald Reagan and George Sr. had the largest deficit known at that time. Clinton, despite his faults, left office with a surplus after overcoming a large deficit. Then what happens? George W. gets elected and within a short period we have a deficit even larger than the one before and just keeps getting bigger. He apparently was not satisfied with the billions the war is costing. By the end of his term it is doubtful our children, grandchildren or even our great grandchildren will ever be able to pay it off. What if one person had the ability to spend millions of our dollars? Why do we need to have senators and representatives. George Jr. needs to be stopped before we have to take out bankruptcy.

I would like to speak out on the lady on the corner of McDougal that has all of the cats. Last year she had at least 15 cats. The police came out, I guess because everybody was complaining, and she said the cats were just strays and there wasn't anything she could do about it. But she does put out food in the morning and in the afternoon also. So of course that keeps them coming. One of the neighbors went to the Humane Society to see what could be done about it. They said they would furnish the neighbor a cage to collect these cats. The neighbor did, she caught cats everyday and caught them all but one girl cat. The lady said she wanted to keep that girl cat and that she would have it fixed. Well, guess what, she didn't and now she probably has another 10 or 15 cats out there. If one of them is not in heat, they're having kittens. Is there anything that can be done about this? We need help.

Future criminals

I'm calling in about the bad example, the lady at JC Penney that had two boys that killed the bird. That is an example right there of two boys who will probably end up in prison when they grow up. because of the way they are treating animals. They say the way they treat animals they will probably treat people when they grow up. So her boys will probably be in prison.
