Reduce carbon emissions now
President Obama is putting forward his program to reduce carbon emissions by 2050. But they have to be reduced now. By 2050 this planet will be a giant dust bowl, as depicted in Road Warrior and Resident Evil. The auto industry had its chance and did nothing but push gas-guzzling autos, and look where it is now.

Obama needs our input to run country
Re Will we tune out Obama? June 18: We spend too much time covering what the president is doing, what fly he is swatting, where he takes his wife for dinner. This is not his fault but ours. When elected, he urged us all to stay involved, to help him govern. We should all be writing to him to let him know our ideas for what needs to be done in this country, in our neighborhoods. He is not around real people and needs our input. This is how Obama will reach his potential to solve our problems. If we dont do our part, Obama will become nothing more than another celebrity.

Tell Congress to stop aid to N. Korea
We ought to be asking our congressmen why we still give foreign aid to North Korea. Citizens should hold their congresspersons feet to the fire for these outrageous (and unconstitutional) giveaways while we struggle to pay our bills. A letter to our congressperson demanding a halt to foreign aid, especially to North Korea, would go a long way in solving this problem.
