Enough; time to play nice

October 9, 2013 

I would like to ask some questions, but our lawmakers have shut down my government.

I was taught in civics that two jobs of the federal government were to promote the general welfare and to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our prosperity.

I don't care whose fault it was bringing down the government, but for the sake of country and countryman, play nice and work things out.

Let the government work toward a more perfect union.
