LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Opening voters’ eyes

WEATHERFORD —

Dear Editor:

I applaud Aaron Renaud for his persistent attempts outlined in his June 10 letter to the editor to open voters’ eyes to the misdeeds of Phil King. I would encourage all who care about ethics in politics to do their homework. There is so much access in our electronic age to information that can educate voters regarding candidates. Taking advantage of this information is vital in making one’s selection on election day. Candidate Matthew Britt, from Decatur, is the Democratic candidate running in the 61st State Congressional District against Phil King. Matthew is a young go-getter with a brain crammed full of knowledge that he will use in protecting rights of Texans. Why not check out his credentials? It seems Parker County needs a change and Matthew Britt is who I’m counting on.    

Respectfully,

Judy B. Beeman

Weatherford

 

It Will Happen

 

Dear Editor:

Illegal immigrants are pouring over the borders, hoping for a fast tract to citizenship. America looks like paradise to them, compared to the circumstances that they fled from. They see all the peanuts, popcorn and candy: come and get it while it is free. The Democratic party will convince them that if they vote for Democrats it will continue.

One bright morning in the not too distant future they will wake up to find themselves wondering why they left one miserable existence and traveled great distances for more of the same. Contrary to liberal belief, there is no free lunch. Instead of sealing the borders to prevent more future disillusionment, you will be shocked to learn that the children that will be going to school most likely do not have a record of their vaccinations.

The president is pushing climate control. I hate to tell the liberals that if they can’t control the borders, what makes them think they can control the earth’s climate. The president promised to raise your electric bill and that will certainly happen when the coal fired power plants are forced to close or make expensive upgrades. There will be people in the coal mining industry that will be unemployed. Is that the reason that we need more illegal workers? The well-meaning environmentalist will be the first to squeal like a pig caught under a gate. We need to be building more power plants instead of closing them. Have you noticed that there are more people that use electricity? When the air conditioner stops and the veggie burgers spoil in the refrigerator then reality will set in. Solar and wind is not going to generate enough power to keep every thing humming along.

  • 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?

  • 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.
