Vote ‘buy’ vote

Dear Editor,

America is being destroyed by voter fraud and the buying of votes by the followers of Karl Marx.

There is voter fraud on both sides of the political spectrum, but the Republicans are slow learners. They don’t seem to be able to hold the light for Democrats to lie and steal votes by. Did you ever hear of box 13 in Alice, Texas? Lyndon Johnson was losing the senate race. But manna from heaven came to the rescue, in the form of 200 votes, that appeared six days after the election. One hundred ninety-eight votes for Mr. Johnson, and two for his opponent, which gave him an 87-vote margin to win the election.

Have you ever heard of the Chicago motto “vote early and often?” There is a poll watcher in Ohio that voted absentee and at the polling place, sent in an absentee ballot for her granddaughter, who went to the polling place and voted again. The lady also sent in two more absentee ballots for people living at her address. She doesn’t think that there is any thing wrong with voting for other folks or voting multiple times.

Did you ever hear of an election board being sued to cut short the voting time for military personnel? You might want to check out what the Obama campaign did in Ohio. Ordinarily the military is allowed to vote absentee up until the day before the election.

America has always made special concessions for the military to have an opportunity to vote, going back to the Revolutionary War. I dare say, had the military votes been counted in Florida in the 2000 election, it would not have been necessary to count hanging chads.

The green horns who raised large sums of money for the Obama campaign, were recipients of millions of tax payer money that went to play solar panels and windmills, and electric cars that were basically a total waste of money. Did you ever hear of Acorn, now that organization is a real vote getter by any method that can be contrived

    Almost without exception, most farms are protected to some degree by guard animals. Dogs and cats are most commonly used to defend against intruders and nuisance pests around the farmstead. In recent years with the proliferation of coyotes, many folks are using guard donkeys or llamas to protect their livestock.

    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.

    In recent years I’ve written quite a bit about the introduction and negative consequences of non-native or invasive species. Fire ants, killer bees, English sparrows, Asian carp, feral hogs and others too numerous to list have forever changed our local ecosystem.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: TV offers

    Have you seen those TV offers where they give a price for one product and then offer a second like items for-free? All you have to do is pay a separate shipping and handling charge for the “free” items.

  • John Paul Carter-color.jpg NOTES FROM THE JOURNEY: What’s in a name?

    Names are important. When my son, Rush, (who’s named after my father) and his wife, Vanessa, were expecting their third daughter, I gave up on having a male namesake and suggested, in jest, they call her “Johnnie Pauline.”

    The church in the Old Testament lived under a theocracy. That is, both the church and state were one. God anointed kings. Civil laws and religious laws were one and the same.

    Anyone who is my age or older has heard the famous quote, “A chicken in every pot.” It is normally attributed to Herbert Hoover during his 1928 presidential bid.
