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.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Anti-fossil fuels
Mr. William’s Letter to the Editor, which was printed in the Democrat on Friday, June 13, 2014, accuses President Obama of being a socialist and anti-fossil fuels.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: It takes time
When the first automobile rolled off the assembly line, the people cried, “we will lose our jobs, thousands will be unemployed.” After years of torture and killing, women were finally allowed the right to vote and the people cried, “the sky will fall, our way of life is over.” It took 200 years for our country to pass a civil rights law after slavery ended to give equal rights to every citizen. It takes time to change.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Unsupported by evidence
The Veterans Health Administration patient case load across all healthcare enrollment priority group categories went from 3.7 million patients in 2000 to 5.9 million patients in 2012 (www.va.gov/vetdata/docs/Utilization/PriorityGroup_FINAL2.xlsx), an increase of approximately 57 percent, a far cry from Mr. Tilly’s claim of an increase of 300 percent.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: VA still underfunded
My recent letter to the editor concerning the backlog of servicemen awaiting VA medical care stated the VA is hugely underfunded. This statement was disputed in Mr. Picou’s letter because the VA has received about a 93 percent increase in funding since 2001. But what Mr. Picou omitted is that the VA case load has more than tripled since 2001. The VA would need a three hundred percent increase in funding to meet new demands. Wars are very expensive.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Evidently altitude makes a difference
The president said that the world is less violent, more tolerant, healthier, better educated and better fed.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Helpful and prevalent service
I want to thank Greg Ducato of Phoenix Transmission for always being helpful and now, despite my car not being very prevalent in Parker County, investing in tools to flush and replace the fluid.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: The debate on E-cigarettes
What part of no danger don’t you understand?
