Lubbock County Clowns
Here's the problems I have with the County proclaiming today "a day of fasting and prayer".
#1. It's smoke and mirrors. It take's your mind and their time off real issues. Let the churches set aside the day.
#2. It's pandering to religious groups and people of faith. They want you to think "well ole councilman______ is a good churchgoing man". They don't want you to think "well old councilman ________did nothing to ensure our drinking water for the future".
#3. Ugh, today is Valentines Day. Couples tend to go out to dinner on this date-so there goes the fasting.
#4. If it's so important, why didn't we approve the date in advance so it could be publicized and recognized?
#5. Anybody else notice it's item "13" on the agenda. Not exactly 666 but enough of a coincidence to creep you out a bit.
