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: Showing respect

    Dear Editor, My sister Robbie Benton’s funeral was Friday afternoon at White’s Funeral Home. The gravesite was outside of Mineral Wells. The respect shown by the good folks of Parker County and the surrounding area was overwhelming. I would say at least 90 percent of drivers pulled over in respect of the loss of life.

  • Letters to the Editor: Protecting Medicare Advantage

    As one of over 14 million Americans who rely on a Medicare Advantage policy for my medical needs, I know it is crucial for Washington to protect the Advantage program’s budget. The Affordable Care Act already slashed $200 billion from the program. It would be a mistake to dismantle a program that produces better healthcare results than regular Medicare, while often costing seniors much less in the process.

  • Letters To The Editor: Kelly response

    In a recent column, William Kelly stated his opposition to abortion and asked the question, “What do you think?” Well, I think we should all publically express our gratitude to CVS for their announced plan to stop selling tobacco products.

  • Letters To The Editor: Entitlement mentality

    Traffic law violations seem to be changing. During the 25 years I spent driving in Parker and Tarrant counties, it was usually the young men and women in small sporty cars that ran the red lights, stop and yield signs and regularly grossly exceeded the posted speed limits.

  • Letters to the Editor: Stop the bailout

    Dear Editor, The administration and congress knew that ObamaCare would fail but have had a plan all along to bail out the private insurance companies that supported the law with taxpayer money. Of course, this plan was kept hidden from American citizens that are already burdened by taxes. Congress should do everything it can to stop this disastrous bill.
