Do you believe in coincidences? Some do, but most don’t. Eventually most coincidences turn out to be carefully crafted deceptions with the idea of a “coincidence” as a ploy to cover an act of treachery.
Take the NGA project. Nowhere in the proposal was there emphasis put on some kind of “promise plan” President Obama had or made to bring growth to high crime areas. Even then, it would never work as long as we continue to give our “free fish” instead of fishing lessons. The idea of growth and change seems to be based upon public outcries for more and more. This is all inner city leaders teach their followers to do, but in St. Louis, even they don’t want the Corps of Engineers plan enacted. That is not a coincidence. But that appears to be the excuse anyway. Why?
Well look at the recent decision to provide aid to Missouri over the winter flooding but not to Illinois. Same flood, same disaster, but different outcomes. Why is this?
Well, look at Illinois. We have a Republican governor and around here we currently have a Republican congressman. Hmm? Missouri has a Democratic governor, Democratic mayor of St. Louis and several Democratic congressmen. A coincidence? I don’t think so. A carefully contrived, poorly mangled, illogical idea to punish us for electing a Republican in offices they didn’t want us to have. Coincidence? Nope. Revenge.
Never miss a local story.
