The average person

EDITOR:

Remember when Americans’ upbringing was “I can do it?” Then after the hippies decided to drop out and caused much of the violence we see today, then this crowd became the view, “We deserve everything.” I am a tea party person. “Here I am Obama.”

We stand for the average person, not afraid to work or try to keep our government out of our business. Do you recall shortly before the elections Obama sent money to the IRS. Why, to spy on us?

As only a suggestion, people in El Dorado County are mad when they buy land only to find there are restrictions by Home Owner Associations or ancient CC&Rs. It must be a mess when tiny communities have conflicting rules. I’m short of belonging to a forced Home Owner Association so my guidelines come from the County Building Department. I suggest, if you want to, join together so you have unity, and legally get rid of the CC&Rs but keep your property grandfathered in. Just a thought.

    OMG you are blaming the hippies for the violence in today's world? That is hilarious! Yes, you definitely need meds. I'm sure your doctor can prescribe something legal. Make sure he's under age 50 though. Otherwise he might have a violent streak!
