Dr. Kevorkian will see you now

Dear Editor,

Dr. Kevorkian rigged up a device that would end the life of a person that wanted to end their life. The patient requested the procedure, and was the one who pulled the trigger. Sarah Palin was criticized severely for saying that there were death panels in Obamacare. There are many who are saying that Obamacare will not work without death panels. The difference between Dr. Obama and Dr. Kevorkian is Dr. Obama will pull the trigger for you, ready or not. You say that is ridiculous, that can’t happen in America. 

What about 10-year-old Sarah Murnaghan, who needed a lung transplant. The law said that she must be 12 years old to get an adult lung. Will you need an attorney and a judge and a doctor to get health care? There is no doubt that a know-all-see-all bureaucrat in their exalted position will make the ultimate decision. Sen. Reid said in an interview, “What we’ve done with Obamacare is have a step in the right direction, but we’re far from having something that’s going to work forever.” When then asked by panelist Steve Sebelius whether he meant ultimately the country would have to have a health care system that abandoned insurance as a means of accessing it, Reid said, “Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.” 

I have said that the Democrat game plan is to have a single payer system. If you think that health care is expensive now, just hide and watch. Remember that the IRS is in charge, and if you like dealing with those folks, then you will be in paradise. Have you noticed that bureaucrats rarely accept responsibility for anything? President Truman said the buck stops here. The crowd that we have in Washington now keeps the buck floating until they get pinned down, then they run to the constitution. They hate the constitution, saying that it is flawed and out of date, but seem to love the fifth amendment, when they paint themselves into a corner. Have you ever known so many folks that are supposedly graduates of prestigious colleges, that are either lying, or are incompetent?

Dr. Thomas Sowell: “It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication somehow think we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication and a government bureaucracy to administer it. It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong.”

Richard Feuilly,

Weatherford

  • 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.

    “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.

  • 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.
