I am sick and tired of the constant crybabying about Gov. Paul LePage.

For once, we have elected a real businessman who is trying to bring this state back from bankruptcy and having to fight every step of the way.

Most businesses have a six-month to a year probation policy. LePage has been in office for three months, and the union won’t let him do his job.

I wonder just how many citizens of Maine ever saw that mural in the Department of Labor. Let me narrow that down to the citizens of Augusta. Come on, be honest.

There are much larger problems to solve than what is being stated in the editorial section of the paper. I might suggest that we wake up and realize that we have a real chance to turn this state around. Let’s all add to the solution, not be the problem.
