— Obama should not be reelected

Dear editor,

Obama shouldn’t be elected again as president. He has already plunged our economy.

He says he would bring the troops back to America from Guantanamo Bay and he did not.

He said he would help military families and he did not. Being in a military family for about six years, I know what it’s like. My father was deployed to Germany when I was born.

If we would have just stuck to the Constitution our forefathers wrote, our beautiful country wouldn’t be where it is today.

He said he would take away all gun rights from American citizens. If he did take all our guns, how would farmers defend cattle from wolves and coyotes’ jaws, how would suburban families protect themselves from thieves, kidnappers, hostage takers and robbers, how would gas station clerks and owners protect themselves from robbers? I know you could use a bat or knives or fists, but remember that old saying, “Never bring a knife to a gunfight,” well it is true and you cannot deny it.

As I have said before, don’t elect Obama, otherwise, you will be the one bringing a knife to a gunfight for America.

Thank you.

Paycen Martin, age 11,


Don’t pick Obama

Dear editor,

President Obama shouldn’t be our president. He doesn’t treat the people that work to keep YOUR family and friends safe and plus those people risk their lives for all of us and still don’t get treated right. You know who they are. The Army!

I think that people should be treated the right way. Do you know how many people are low on money cause of how pricey everything is? If my family got treated bad then I would be sad, wouldn’t you?

He has our economy messed up even though I don’t deal with that stuff, I know it is hard for the people like my parents and all the people that work for money but have a family to take care of and they don’t even get enough pay to take care of them cause they don’t get ENOUGH PAY. They should have enough for their family. That’s all. And, don’t pick Obama.

Sierra Martin, age 9,

  • 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.

  • tiscione, lou.jpg TISCIONE: Finding a church

    God commands His people to “keep holy the Sabbath Day.” The “Sabbath Day” was changed by the apostolic church to the first day, Sunday. The church refers to every Sunday as the Lord’s Day. Each Lord’s Day is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Therefore, a professing Christian will seek to find a local church in which to invest in the kingdom and worship the King!

  • John Paul Carter-color.jpg NOTES FROM THE JOURNEY: What’s your current address?

    Shortly after we moved to Weatherford 19 years ago, the old post office (today’s Court Building) that was literally bursting at the seams was replaced by a new, larger facility – our present mail center that sometimes seems outgrown as we stand in line to buy stamps or mail a package.

    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.

  • PASTOR POPHIN: The joy of unity in church

    Do you enjoy going to church? I mean, do you really enjoy going to church? No matter how you answer, there are some common reasons — or perhaps we would call them conditions — that would cause all of us to truly enjoy going to church.

  • 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.

  • larry jones cropped:color NOW HEAR THIS: The blessing of memories

    Many years ago, shortly after I retired from the navy, I was sitting around shooting the breeze with my brother David, when he remarked that he regretted never serving in the military and experiencing the things I had seen. Like most of our farmer ancestors, he spent his entire life within five miles of where he grew up. Not unlike our parents, he could also count on the fingers of one hand the number of times he had even been out of the state of Texas and probably have digits to spare.

    Immigration: Wow! Where are all these illegal boys and girls coming from, and why? The “why” is a big question! I’m sure 5-year-olds are not coming for a better life and income.

  • tiscione, lou.jpg TISCIONE: Signs and seals

    God gave the church signs and seals. These are called sacraments or holy ordinances. They are both holy and commanded. There are two sacraments instituted by Jesus Christ. They are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. These sacraments are often referred to as “secondary doctrine.” They are secondary not because they are unimportant. They are secondary because they are not necessary for salvation.

  • 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.
