Many just talk; a few act
AZ Senator Ron Gould is among the few
By “Ben Franklin”, A m e r i c a n P o s t – G a z e t t e
In the inexorable march of time past the vernal equinox, the desert sun takes its toll on all of us, as it pushes temperatures toward and over the 100 degree mark. Yes, it is a dry heat, but 5% humidity perform all too well as a desiccant, that drains the energy, and sometimes life, out of man, beast and plant alike as our bright sun rises higher and higher. Were it not for mechanical air conditioning, we humans would be hard pressed to live here in the Valley of the Sun during the warm months.
As with all things man made, sometimes air conditioners need repairs, and it seems, these breakdowns usually occur when our coffers are the most empty. Our state GOP has been running lean lately, and as luck would have it, the AC broke down at party headquarters not too long ago leaving the people who work there at the mercy of the weather.
Enter Senator Ron Gould, stage right. As soon as Ron found out there was a problem with the AC, he immediately went to see what he could do. Ron Gould, you see, is an HVAC contractor in Lake Havasu City. He did not have to volunteer. The man has more than enough to do considering his position at the legislature as well as his business, but like good conservatives everywhere, Gould stepped up to the plate without a second thought. This is the do-yourself attitude that built this nation and brought it to preeminence. How lucky we are that years of the entitlement mentality have not yet stamped out the can do spirit that made America great.
We at A m e r i c a n P o s t – G a z e t t e salute Senator Ron Gould. Thanks to him, the good volunteers of the GOP can get back to what they do best, no longer in danger of resembling burgers on the “barbie”, medium-rare to medium-well. With more folks like Ron Gould, perhaps all of us Americans can get back to what we do best, and revive this country as the beacon of the free world.
