Suburban Life Sound Off: Sept. 25-Oct. 1

Hypocrisy of sugar tax ads

I’m just wondering, all these political ads you see supporting the sugar tax and how bad all those sugary beverages are for our children and grandchildren, making them obese and causing childhood diabetes – are they keeping their children and grandchildren home on Halloween so we don’t have to give them all those sugary treats?

Is juice next?

I guess [Cook County Board Chairwoman] Toni Preckwinkle will be starting to tax our juices now. According to an article in the Sun-Times by a pediatric study that juice is not good for children; they should only be drinking milk or actually eating crushed fruit. So I guess we can expect a tax on juice, whether from concentrate or not.

Disgusted by state’s
handling of abortion

Now that Gov. [Bruce] Rauner has signed the bill legalizing public funding of abortion on demand, our state government has officially sanctioned wholesale baby-killing, regardless of the motive. Human life is now officially no different than that of a bug on the sidewalk. No more phony sentimental garbage about how children are precious and so special or how babies are sacred. The state government has now officially determined that we are all nothing but numbers on a piece of paper. Politicians are disgusting pigs with calculators. God save us.

Proud of DGN football players

I was so proud of our Downers Grove North football team on Friday, Sept. 29, when they played Oak Park-River Forest High School. Before the game, the teams were asked to stand to show respect for our flag and a moment of silence for these racial issues. After the moment of silence, our anthem began to play. Our players and coaches stood respectfully while the Oak Park-River Forest ... players and coach knelt. Too bad these individuals don’t understand the history of our flag as exemplified by Francis Scott Key and a former slave William Carney. Our flag does not endorse or cause these current racial issues. Those players and coach’s action are disrespectful to all Americans, especially those who had served in our military.
