LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Had enough yet?

WEATHERFORD —

Dear Editor:

The Obama administration has come under heavy fire recently over the Gitmo Five terrorist prisoner release; not only from conservatives, but even some liberal supporters have had a voice over this issue. Add to that all of the past and ongoing scandals, mistruths and lies over his healthcare program. 

Now, as you read this the Southwest United States is being inundated by hordes of illegal immigrant children. So many in fact that military bases are being opened up to house and care for them; the border doors are open and only swing one way. In addition to this disastrous immigration action, there is no comprehensive foreign policy, our military is being gutted at a time when the world has become much more dangerous…due to Obama’s lack of foreign policy acumen, re: his recent schooling from Russian President Vladmir Putin. 

If this is not enough to change the views of those who blindly support this failed socialist presidency maybe the next wave of idiotic decisions will when their own economic standing is affected. You see the jack-booted thugs at the EPA just came out with more wrong-headed emissions standards for the power generation industry in the United States. Now bear in mind they have no congressional oversight thanks to the black robe wearing senior citizens called the Supreme court. 

This all stems from the global warming hoax perpetuated by Obama and all the Chicken Little environmental zealots in this country. No other country is running to sign up to this nonsense; the worst polluters are the Chinese communists and India, and they have no intention of ruining their economies. So it’s not global warming thanks to the Socialist Party it’s only the United States supposedly causing “global warming.” 

In fact the Prime Minister of Australia just announced the formation of like-minded countries to collaborate on stopping Obama from pushing the so called carbon tax which will destroy or severely impact industry, jobs, and economies. Our EPA standards were levied primarily on coal-fired electrical generation plants which cannot be met; the technology does not exist and we have nothing, I repeat nothing, to replace coal at the moment.

  • 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: Supreme Court decision

    Regardless of what the US Supreme Court proclaims,  corporations are not persons. They have special laws by which they must abide and laws that benefit only them.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Immigration

    Why are tens of thousands of children suddenly entering the country from Central America? If it is due to the president and Democrats in Congress’s attempt to give immigration status to the children who were brought into this country illegally by their parents years ago, why isn’t there a flood of Mexican children crossing our southern border? Why just kids from three Central American countries?

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Humans responsible for global warming

    The earth’s climate is getting warmer, and humans are responsible.
