In my previous post I expected one question up front and to my great dismay, I did not get it. What does high gas prices have to do with the everyday woodworker? What is the tie-in?, or just what does this have to do with woodworking. Well it looks like I will have to volunteer the reasoning behind my dismay. I, for one, would like to see formed a Common Sense Advisory board to the President of the United States, made up of woodworkers such as yourself from all walks of life. Doctors, Lawyers, Electricians, Plumbers, Laborers, Truck drivers, Factory workers, Retiree’s etc. Why? Ask yourself this question. Doesn’t it seem like our government has completely lost touch with it’s people and no one there seem to process the least bit of common sense? Well, most of the woodworkers that I know and from the ones here on LJ’s do have one thing in common, “Common Sense” I feel that it is high time the people of this country have a little more control or at least have a way of showing their agreement or their disagreement with how things are going. One other thing, I must have to admit that I knew that you would agree with or disagree with me on my last post. But, out of about 200 or so views, There were only about 4 replies for which I also am most grateful . I guess , I had expected just a few more. Could it be, not as many of us care about what it is costing each of us, each time we fill up at the pump as I had previously thought. I will continue to contact our government and our representatives , even becoming a pain in their side, if that is needed to get something done about our energy problems and cost. May God bless each of you and your family’s, the United States , the rest of the World and may he also grant peace on earth.
