Letters to the Editor, Feb. 3, 2008

(Continued)



Every effort should be made to prevent voter fraud that occurred in New Hampshire’s presidential primary. “Paul and Obama cheated out of third and first place by voting machines and hand count fraud,” (Jan. 9 article by Paul Joseph Watson).

Lou Dobbs at CNN wrote: “Across the nation, eight out of every 10 voters will be casting their ballots this November on electronic voting machines. And these machines time and again have been demonstrated to be extremely vulnerable to tampering and error, and many of them have no voter-verified paper trail.”

My recent Internet search using “vote fraud 2008” yielded a computer estimated 181,000 entries — wow!

Last year I voted in Precinct 410 using an electronic voting machine. When I pressed the button, my vote vanished into the ether — no paper trail, no recoverable record that I know of. This is not good.

When I vote I want to be confident my vote was properly counted. I trust Mr. Parten will earn his $50 per hour by devising a system that prevents voter fraud in Parker County.

Basil Garrett,

Willow Park



Vote Marjorie King

Dear editor,

On March 4, the voters of Parker County will elect the officials that will be running the county for the next four years. One office in particular is the tax assessor-collector.

The current elected official, Larry Lippincott, has a law suit filed against the county. It could eventually cost Parker County over a million dollars. His opponent, Marjorie King, had always maintained a great office, with qualified and courteous employees, and she never brought Parker County into a lawsuit.

I encourage all citizens of Parker County to get out and vote on March 4. Vote Marjorie King.

George Hester,

Weatherford



Get priorities right

Dear editor,

Mr. Riff Wright’s letter in the Jan. 27 edition begs for a brief rebuttal. If this gentleman neither owns property nor owns or operates a business on the square, then his cheap shot at Mrs. Cotten-Scott was uncalled for.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Concern for your pocketbooks

    Dear Editor: My message today is to Democrats out in Parker County and the middle class and moderate-income Republicans in towns and rural areas.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Now is the time for all good men...

    When man’s greed, desire for riches, power and control of our nation become greater than their love of humanity and our country, by constantly fomenting discord and hate among the citizens, warmongering and constantly talking of wars against other nations - it is putting political ideology before the welfare of citizens and country. It is time for We the People to take a good look at these men involved - no matter their status in our nation, we call the United States of America and decide whether or not they deserve the privilege and sanctuary of our nation.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Good company, better service

    We would like to thank Devin’s Handyman Service, Gary Boase, David Schramm and James Reed for the wonderful job they did repainting our front fence, front porch, back porch, patio and deck. Everything looks new and makes such a difference in our home.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Don't judge a book...

    Dear Editor: Thursday night, July 17, I was present for a surprisingly interesting experience when state representative candidate Matthew Britt addressed a small group of supporters, followed by a question and answer session.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Response to 'Blame game'

    Dear Editor: It’s not drug cartels telling Central Americans their children won’t be turned away at the border, it is the actions of this administration with its refusal to secure the border and its unilateral rewriting of immigration law. As has been shown, this president and his administration have for some time lied about the security of the border and immigration enforcement.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Sick and tired

    Do you remember hearing Hillary Clinton screaming, “I am sick and tired of people who say if you debate or disagree with this administration somehow you are not patriotic. We should stand up and say, we are Americans and we have a right to disagree with any administration.” Nancy Pelosi said that the swamp needed to be drained and I agree, but I see she and Senator Reid are still splashing around in the slime.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Our officials care

    I take serious exception to Mr. Jay Cloward’s letter, “Big city, no care” (7/8/14) in which he states that it almost looks like the city wants to become a for-profit company and Weatherford has “become a city too big to care.”

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: What’s so good about President Obama?

    I’m proud to live in an America where our great president has passed a health care bill, after five presidents (Republican and Democratic) over the last 50 years tried and failed. I want my America to be a place where not only the rich can receive affordable health care by all citizens alike. Here’s to you, President Obama. It saddens me to hear disrespectful and pernicious comments about the man who holds the highest office of our great country. I hope that good people all across Parker County will join me in prayer for our elected leadership.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Big city, no care

    The City of Weatherford officials have deemed it necessary to increase costs of utilities and taxes so more pet projects can be paid for. This comes from a city that collects money each month for storm runoff during an extended drought.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Hobby Lobby ruling

    “It’s a free country!” How many times have you heard that statement?
