Letter to the editor: Time changes everything

Dear Editor,

On July 3, 2008, Sen. Obama said in a speech to folks in Fargo, N.D., the way Bush has done it over the last eight years was take out a credit card on the Bank of China in the name of our children, raising our debt from $5 trillion to $9 trillion. He added $4 trillion by his lonesome, that we will have to pay back – $30,000 for every man woman and child. That is irresponsible, it is unpatriotic.

Does that sound like the man was telling a whopper just to get elected? President Bush added $4 trillion in eight years. President Obama has added $7 trillion, $955 billion, and $768 million all by his lonesome since January 2009. If what President Bush did was unpatriotic, what would you call nearly $8 trillion added to the debt?

Mr. Tilly asked the question. What are Republicans scared of? The answer to his question is Detroit and a whole host of cities that are bankrupt, or on the brink of disaster. President Obama is accusing the Republicans of not wanting to pay the bills that have been racked up. I just keep wondering who the Republicans were that dug the hole that Detroit finds itself in? Detroit is getting $100 million more dollars of your tax money. It appears to me that you can thank the Democrats for the majority of bankruptcies. What is so difficult to understand about promising more than you can deliver will end in disaster?

The economy would be in much better shape if the Democrats would allow private enterprise to flourish. President thinks that if it is not a job that drains the public treasury, it is not a job. Obama care is the main reason that the economy has been slow to recover. Who is going to hire more workers, or start a new business, when very few know what is in the bill even after it was passed. From what I am hearing, the young people that voted for the president and his affordable health care are going to wish they had never heard of it. I think that people will just roll over and die, when they see how many hoops they have to jump through just to see a doctor, if there are any doctors that will put up with the hassle.

We need to have a class for the Democrats on English comprehension. What is the problem with understanding that the government is fully funded, but Obama care is not funded?

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: I have been corrected

    I was complaining about President Obama making promises that he has not kept, such as taxes will not go up one dime or health care will go down about $2,500 per year for a family of four. He said he would cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. He said he would have an immigration plan in place. What he really meant was that if Congress would allow it, we would have open borders.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Concern for your pocketbooks

    Dear Editor: My message today is to Democrats out in Parker County and the middle class and moderate-income Republicans in towns and rural areas.

  • 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.
