It never ceases to amaze me that folks that don't even LIVE here are spinning this out of control. There is another thread about this whole issue in
which I cleared this up already.
First of all, there are a LOT of liberals in these parts....no matter what "we" do, they will find fault, period....good, bad, or indifferent, makes
no difference. This is one of those instances, and the fact that there was a report about it in the media, shows me just how little folks respect the
very people who bring business to their cities. So let me clear it up AGAIN....
A new General came aboard not too long ago. In the change-over, he was angered by how many deaths occur on Highway 62, which is the VERY long,
straight, stretch of road that goes through several cities down to Palm Springs. Marines are constantly driving this road. It is a VERY DEADLY
ROAD!!! I personally have witnessed several fatalities since living here, and have even lost a friend on this road. The numbers are staggering. So,
the General and base officials have been meeting with city officials of Yucca Valley, to team up with a plan to crack down on drunk and reckless
driving. I cannot find an MP3 clip of what I heard just last week, but in the words of the General to the city council:
"You police your dummies, and I'll take care of mine."
Very simply put, the General is being a darn good "father" to a bunch of irresponsible military personnel, in order to save their lives and the
lives of others. HOWEVER, innocent military personnel are also losing their lives because of reckless civilians. This is a joint effort to pump up
awareness on a road which these cities have pretty much let go to hell. I for one, am GLAD to see this!!! THERE IS NO CONSPIRACY HERE!!
I have never seen a more whiny, lazy, uninformed group of individuals as I have seen living here. I am disgusted over the local radio stations
spinning this and everything else out of proportion, without ever bothering to get the facts....isn't it just like the media to do so? Z-107.7 is
known for this, and most military members have their own nick-name for a certain DJ there who ALSO sits on the 29 Palms city council...a little bit of
a conflict of interest, wouldn't you say? He's nothing short of an ignorant jack-*ss who creates discord every chance he gets, and If I were a
betting person, I'd say this bit of info most likely came directly from him.
When the military arrests a civilian and hauls them off, THEN we'll have problems!!! But let's not forget that our men and women also know the law,
and I would bet that NONE of them would go against it to accomplish what's being implied here. All of you who sit comfortably at your computers,
without the faintest idea of what is going on less than a mile away from my home, are enjoying the right to join the ranks of complete idiots who do
nothing but complain and make trouble every time they turn around. It's a free country, do as you will....but at least use common sense and get your
facts first. Try looking up how many deaths have occurred on this road over the years. I might actually start to make sense.
I'm part of the military family, and I'm HERE...what does that tell you? We're not stupid, and we're not the enemy....please keep that in mind!
It's so easy to stereotype people you don't know as being the "big, bad, enemy" out to take your rights away from you....they are OUR rights as
well. We protect them, remember?? Not everything is bad, but if you choose to find bad in everything, then you probably will, and there will be
enough fools around to join you.
