Vandalism in Marysville

We need to talk. What are we going to do about the terrorists/vandals/thugs that are taking over the little town of Marysville? What bothers me the most is to see the businesses on Third Street that try so hard to make it a special place in this town.
I realize this is not the only town in the world that has this problem. Id like to think this town is smart enough to solve the problem. If these TVTs are local grown (born and raised here), weve got to find these kids and lock them up in reform school with the parents (if we can find both of them). Most people never think about the parents being responsible for the actions of their brats until their kids are 18 years old. We hear about kids in diapers running loose and getting into trouble. We need to stop them at that point before they become big time criminals. Its like a forest fire, stopping it when it is the size of a match, before it spreads. If these TVTs are foreigners (so-called legal or illegal immigrants), I want them bundled up, packaged up and stamped return to sender and do not return. That also includes the whole family. Any crime committed by any immigrant, legal or illegal, should immediately be shipped out of the country. We dont need any more people or trouble.
Weve got decent American kids dying in foreign countries to bring freedom and democracy to other countries. Here at home, weve lost our freedom and peace. Bring the troops home and put them on our borders and in our towns. Weve got to clean this country up and clear out these TVTs at home.
According to the American Conservative magazine, from an article on page 18 (Jan. 15 issue), we have a very serious, dangerous problem in all of our big cities, including one of my favorite towns, Anchorage, Alaska. The article is titled Meet MS13. Most of the worst gangs are from south of the U.S. border. I think this article by Paul Moreland is a must read. I understand the experts can tell where these TVTs are from just by reading the graffiti.
Our homegrown TVTs are caused by a lack of gangs. What do I mean? Im talking about a gang called the family: father, mother and kids. The problem is that mothers do not want to be in the house, they want to be speaker of the House (in Congress). This is fine, except that all women have lost interest in being a conscientious mother and want to be out of the home and be into their own business policemen, pilots, attorneys, etc. Women love to bring kids into the world but they dont want to take care of them. They turn them out into the street and then wonder what happened to their innocent, little kid that was in diapers. We cannot blame most of the young kids entirely for the trouble they are in. We train and care for pets and farm animals better than we do our own kids. One of the most intelligent statements on this subject was by Jacqueline Kennedy. She said the most important responsibility I have to do as wife of the President of the United States is to bring up my children properly. It is time that we do something about this problem, because it is not only a graffiti problem that we have; its other crimes car theft, robbery and murder that these kids are getting into. The place to start is right here in Marysville, Wash. Will someone tell me of a time and place where the citizens of Marysville can meet weekly to talk about this subject and other problems. Now that we have talked lets act.
