Private sector creates jobs when not taxed to death

The bombing in Boston a few weeks ago is tragic, and I hope we never have another one again.

The news media seem to turn every tragedy into a political tool for the Democratic Party’s agenda. Yes, I said it, and the RINO Republicans! It seems Congress wants to use terrible situations to create laws and regulations to take more of our freedoms and liberties away.

We don’t need more cameras and drones to make our life more secure. That is not the problem. Boston’s tragedy never would have happened if our government agencies were communicating and doing their jobs correctly. Did it happen because this administration cut the domestic terrorism budget in half? Maybe Congress should focus on those problems before taking more of our Freedoms away.

Wake up, people. We need to focus on the economy and jobs, and this administration doesn’t understand the private sector does that when they are not being taxed to death.
