Letters to the Editor: Happy days again

Dear Editor,

To make a liberal happy is very easy to do. All you need to do is to tell them a lie. For example, you can keep your doctor, you can keep your insurance, raising the debt limit is unpatriotic, the Republicans shut down the government, or the veteran memorials must be protected from the 90-year-old World War II veterans. The memorials were barricaded, but the closed mall was opened to the illegal crowd. The families of the soldiers that were killed in defense of our country were denied their compensation. The president finally used his executive order pen after Fisher House stepped up to help the families. The House sent a bill to the Senate to fund such. The Senate approved the bill and President Obama signed the bill. The secretary of defense dropped the ball. Lawyers at the Pentagon held up the funds. Why did it take so long for the president to find his executive order signing pen? In 2006, Senator Obama said raising the debt limit was incompetent leadership. Now the debt limit has been raised $986 billion more. Interest rates will being to rise in the future and will take more and more of our resources to pay the interest on the debt.

There are approximately 314 million people in America. At the rate that people are signing up, it will take about 50 years to get everyone signed up on Obamacare.

The poor, ignorant souls have fallen for the lie about affordable health care. The Democrats say that Obamacare is the law of the land, so get used to it. I hate to upset folks, but if I understand this correctly, the law that was signed by the president is quite different from the one that was just funded. The president does not have the right to pick and choose which parts of a law that he likes or dislikes. We are fast losing our freedoms. The constitution has served this nation well, but President Obama deems it a nuisance. When people come to the realization that government is the most inefficient entity on the planet, they will come to the conclusion that he is a nuisance.

  • 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: 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.
