Any person who favors revolution needs to have his/her head examine. This attitude reminds of a punk kid picking up his ball and run home. I had asked a question months ago, so I feel like I need to ask it again. If this nation is in a dire situation, then why hadn’t you put pen to paper and “petition the government to redress grievances”. I bet I will not get an answer because that would prove my point.
It is a ashamed that some men in their 50’s, 60’s and 70’s on the Vic AD site didn’t have the wisdom to offer solutions or guidance, only to make cat calls. Where is the wisdom? Where is the GOD GIVEN WISDOM?????
Someone also mention the “sins” in Victoria politics and governance. Victoria, like other surrounding towns, is based on community’s passiveness, laziness, and on the Preps of the community’s powerful families. Being a member of a said family takes favor over merit, hard work, etc. Which is why there are too many problems in this area. Problems like the high drop out rate, education increase, local economics, crime, and the lack of jobs. A college drop out shouldn’t have the power to ruin Higher Education.
The failure of a community, a state, and a nation is based on the sins of the people, not one man, one party, or one class. This is the government of the people, by the people, and for the people. President John Kennedy said in his Inaugural address, “that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans." I have to wonder “what happen to the torch”? Where is the torch? WHAT HAPPEN TO THE LEADERSHIP !?!?!?!? And What happen to the wisdom??? What is wrong in a nation, can be corrected at a home!!!!
This is why I have respect for people like Matt Ocker, Mayoral Candidate Chelle Nickerson, the late Yorktown City Manager Marcus Puente, and other young leaders in this area. Because they put their money where their mouths are. They have the torch, but it is the unwise, the corrupt, and the foolish who made attempts to splash water on it.
As to the person who is not bellyaching revolution and other foolishness on another blog. Here is a quote for you.
“It is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things.”
-Henry David Thoreau.
