I would like to take a second to give recognition to someone that has impacted and changed my life.
I am talking about a wonderful and caring woman who works at PHCC on the Spring Hill campus. Her name is Wendy Williams; she works in the financial aid department.
Ms. Williams works endlessly every day to help students achieve their goal. She does this by helping students like me who are at low income be able to go to school and make something of themselves. I cannot tell you how helpful she has been to me in earning my AA degree. I will be graduating this December along with many students because of Ms. Williams.
Sometimes people get left out when they are doing such a good job and I think that it would be nice to be in the spotlight even if it is just in the form of a letter to the editor. Ms. Williams along with all the staff in administration have been so wonderful to me and many other I imagine.
I do want to say thank you personally Wendy for being there for me and I appreciate everything you are doing not just for me but for everyone.
Where are our rights?
This is regarding the recent column titled "Why isn't organ donation mandatory?" by Ted Rall. I have a better idea for Mr. Rall. Perhaps the only organ taking that should be mandatory is the ones from those of us who think government should just go ahead and take everybody's when they die. I for one am sick of progressives. They think they should be allowed to dictate how everything is run under the sun.
Well, they won't have to wait much longer. When Obamacare kicks in, it will do the trick in one fell swoop. Between health insurance companies and employers, they will have total complete control of every aspect of our lives. Insurance companies will fine you for whatever and employers just simply won't hire you for the same reason.
Forget about opting out of Obamacare. You won't have the right. So what if it was passed in the middle of the night behind closed doors with the consensus of no one? People get elected into office by not preaching what they know they don't have to practice once they get there.
You know Mr. Rall? You should go back and reread the Constitution. This time with your eyes open. But, I know, you progressives think everyone else owes them their body and soul. The only thing is, one day it's going to come back to bite you and you will realize you only meant for everyone else's rights to be taken away except your own.
On that day, sir, I will say I told you so.
