Letters to the editor, Sunday, July 1

— Obama's past, associations don't comply with democracy

Dear editor

“All men having power ought to be distrusted,” according to James Madison, who was known as the “Father of the United States Constitution.”

He was the fourth president of the United States and served during the War of 1812. I can’t prove this, but I’ll bet Madison would agree with me that it is foolhardy to put someone in a position of power, such as president of the U.S., that we know nothing about! Blame in large amounts fall on the traditional media, both broadcast and print. Never before have we elected a chief executive that we know nothing about.

Let’s not forget the ridiculous strategy of the GOP leadership. They thought it would be a mistake to talk about Mr. Obama’s past, including his past and present associations. Did not Mom and Dad always say “Birds of a feather, flock together”?

Obama’s mother divorced his father and she married another Marxist. His mentors as a child were communists. He has spent his entire life surrounded by communists. Having trouble thinking of some names? Ever hear of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, also known as the “unrepentant terrorist”? Professor Ayers and his wife, also a professor, have been working for the overthrow of the government of the U.S. since the 1960s. Dohrn and Bill Ayers founded the far left “Weather Underground.” This organization was committed to the violent overthrow of the U.S. government.

One bombing resulted in murder charges against Ms. Dohrn. She also spent several years on the FBIs Most Wanted list. Among her other accomplishments, Ms. Dohrn was/is an officer of the “Students for a Democratic Society.” The name obviously is to confuse you into believing this isn’t a communist organization. Once asked if she was a leftist, Bernadine Dohrn replied, “I am a revolutionary communist.”

Why bother to speak of these two?

They happen to be best friends with Barack Hussein Obama. Mr. Obama announced his intention to run for office from the Ayers/Dohrn home!! More recently Ayers is helping to keep the “occupy” movement well organized and funded with money from George Soros, a billionaire “monetary terrorist” who also happens to own a lot of our information sources in the U.S. His money goes to ACORN, MoveOn.org, Modern Matters and many others. Mr. Soros is also a big supporter of B. Obama, having contributed millions of dollars to his campaign.

In spite of his radical associations, the traditional media calls Mr, Obama a “middle of the road” Democrat. He has most recently been referred to as a “European socialist,” Rush Limbaugh and others are finally openly referring to the president as a Marxist!! Those who did not grow up in post-World War II America might ask “What is wrong with a Marxist/communist?”

Hayward S. Bellah,

  • larry jones cropped:color NOW HEAR THIS: Taking care of your tools

    For much of my life I’ve heard the saying, “Take care of your tools, and your tools will take care of you.”  In our modern “throw away world” this has become much less important than it used to be, but down on the “pore farm,” tools still enjoy a prominent position in my daily life.

  • PASTOR POPHIN: The greatest joy of all: Jesus

    The first part of this week was a joyous one for me. I took 10 youth to Lake Mineral Wells State Park for three days of day camping. Camp Adventure was the name of the camp. We discovered the joy of the One who created us: Jesus. I am sitting at my desk on the day after the camp writing this article. I am overjoyed by the events of the week, and yet I am physically exhausted. The Lord moved powerfully among our youth.

  • 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.

  • 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.
