Like Pilgrims

Last evening at the Whatcom County Council’s public meeting they voted to continue their moratorium which prevents the issuance of a building permit for homes residing in the Nooksack watershed which would require a private-well for their potable water. Early in the evening, before the Council voted, they took public comments from the audience. Overwhelmingly the audience communicated their desire to have this moratorium lifted. One of those commentary’s was given by Mary Beth Teigrob. Mary Beth served on the Whatcom County Planning Commission and has given a lot of her personal time to public service. Mary Beth gave her permission for Liberty Road to share the poem she wrote and read to the Whatcom County Council on last night. ~ LR Like Pilgrims Like pilgrims before us, we dreamt of our land, Where children and livestock could flourish we planned. This dream came to be, In the previous century. Sandy loam soil with some dark rich peat, A place for country kids! Oh how sweet! Over the years we toiled and sweat, A house and a barn to keep out the wet. Fencing, cross fencing to protect the land, Carefully cared for by our own hand. But while we were …

https://dchealthlink.com/

Local financial expert and charitable organization manager, Dr. Bob Patton shares his frustration with the state of private health insurance (Obamacare). Bob tells it like it is and everyone who is in the same boat understands exactly what he means. This post was password protected until the author gave final approval for it’s publication. ~ LR Congratulations! Senators Murray, Cantwell and Representative Larsen!!!  You have helped to save Obamacare, the most damaging health law ever forced on the American working class. We still have 46 full-time working families without our once great EMPLOYER PAID HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN, because you Democrats made it illegal under Obamacare. You brag about now insuring a few million people; the many healthy, young people who did not want to buy insurance.  However, you forget to recognize the tens-of-million working Americans who once had great insurance through EMPLOYER PAID HEALTH INSURANCE PLANS that you have now made illegal.  In the meantime you have arranged through a special District of Corruption Health Insurance Exchange, to have you and your staff covered under the same EMPLOYER PAID HEALTH INSURANCE PLANS that you made illegal for everyone except Congress.  You guys are just a bunch of parasites living off working …

A Nation Stands By While American History is Erased….

Top news of the day is Mayor Kelli Linville and the Bellingham City Council moving to the trend that we must remove any historical reminders to those who fought as soldiers in the south during the American Civil War. So, today Mayor Linville has ordered the removal of the Pickett Bridge sign. As the nation wrestles with a tragedy the solution seems to be to erase history. Is this the way we heal as a nation? Can we ever unite as a nation if we erase all physical commemoration from our public spaces? Perhaps the most attuned President of our beloved Nation said it best when he united a nation after a horrific civil war by claiming that every soldier was entitled to be treated with equality. Where is our Abraham Lincoln at a time when so many work to divide this nation? Fact #9: Lincoln desired a forgiving Reconstruction. After a long war there were many who felt that Southerners should be severely punished for their insurrection.  Some wanted to hold rebels criminally accountable, exact huge financial penalties, and relegate the Southern states to second-class status.  Lincoln, on the other hand, advocated amnesty and a swift return to an …
