Why didn’t bridge have more clearance
Regarding the commercial trucks striking the Glenville Road railroad bridge, I seem to recall this bridge being rebuilt a couple of years ago. To my amazement, trucks are still hitting this bridge.
Why didn’t they resolve this issue when they built the new bridge? I would think they could either raise the bridge above the road below or lower the road below the bridge to give greater clearance and solve this problem.
Impeachment was about hating Trump
U.S. Congress members swear an oath when they assume the duties of the office. That oath includes the words, “I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States…I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; …I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion.”
Relative to impeachment, the Constitution states: “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” This does not address private citizens.
How, then, can we account for all Democrat senators and seven of the Republicans voting in favor of an “impeachment” against Donald Trump, a private citizen?
The Senate Democrats, including New York’s Charles Schumer, Kirsten Gillibrand and seven Republicans, lack integrity, having violated the oath of their office.
That they held the “impeachment” knowing they couldn’t get a conviction demonstrates their hatred of Trump and his supporters, contempt for the Constitution and disregard for your tax dollars.
If you’re curious why President Trump spoke at the Jan. 6 rally in D.C. (which he did not organize) or why some Republican senators opposed outright acceptance of the Electoral College results, watch the video “Absolute Proof” at michaeljlindell.com.
Also, why is the U.S. Capitol still surrounded by thousands of National Guard troops and a permanent fence topped with razor wire? Because the leftists intend to take everything they want.

Need perseverance on covid vaccines
Along with many space enthusiasts, I watched anxiously as the Perseverance explorer executed a precarious, yet precise landing on Mars Feb. 18.
The talent and ingenuity on display by so many dedicated folks made me wonder. How can a country able to navigate a spacecraft almost 300 million miles to a pinpoint controlled landing be so stymied trying to set up a universal, priority-based covid vaccine appointment schedule?
Like thousands of others, I have been thoroughly frustrated while repeatedly navigating myriad questions on various websites, trying unsuccessfully to secure an appointment. Apparently, we’ll all need much more perseverance here on Earth as well.
GOP does best to avoid accountability
In essence, 43 senators voted to avoid, in the most cowardly manner, the domestic terrorists’ intent to hang Mike Pence and if possible, shoot Nancy Pelosi. If the mob took out Sen. Grassley, where would we be this morning?
We would be watching a triumphant “not former guy” wielding his newfound power with reckless abandon.
They stuck together. Willingly they hid behind their knowingly incorrect interpretation of the Constitution, ultimately fearing to hold their sociopath leader to any sense of accountability.
They have set the tone for a future demagogue to come along that actually has a brain and has learned he/she can accomplish what the other guy could not.
Nor do any of the 43 senators seem to want to assign any accountability to Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley, who blatantly led the charge with several others to refuse to certify a free, fair and honest vote.
The 43 scream for the First Amendment rights while GOP leaders at home work overtime to censor the magnificent seven senators who had the courage and vision to vote to impeach.
Mike Ball in Pennsylvania said, “We did not send him (Sen. Toomey) there to vote with his conscience. We did not send him there to do the right thing.” Huh?
Next up: The GOP in some states will try to suppress the vote. Obviously, they only correctly interpret the Constitution when it meets their momentary need. Accountability is not always easy; the road to hell is.
