Panga Boat Bust 9/6

Weekly Poll
Are you comfortable with prayer in public meetings?

Yes, atheists have too much control over what's allowed.
No, keep church and state separate.
Let anyone from any religion pray in public and that will make it fair.
I'm more uncomfortable with the fact that local politicians think they need divine assistance.

Keep presidents to two terms

Scott C. Presnal - Morro Bay

There is a proposed new law that has not been passed by our Congress (U.S. House of Representatives, Senate) called H. J. RES 15 that will allow a future president of the United States to serve more than two terms by doing away with the 22nd Amendment.

I am against repealing that amendment, because it will give our president more power to control and devastate our lives as a nation. Even if we have Christian people, this little reminder of this bill being proposed should be voted no by our own Congresswoman, Lois Capps (D).

In the long term, we are losing our freedom like we haven’t in a long time. Does it make any sense to vote on something that will have ultimate consequences in the near future?
