COLUMN: Santa came early for Obama voters

— When Santa Obama arrived, the children and adults jumped and shouted for joy.

What a wonderful four more years of truth and prosperity. Food stamps, free cell phones — and who knows what else Santa has in his bag. The rich will pay for all these wonderful gifts.

Has anyone noticed that Santa loads his sleigh with so many goodies that Rudolph and the other reindeer just can’t pull the load?

Santa has promised too many goodies to the people of Argentina, and now he can’t deliver. Inflation is still running high and unemployment is rampant and there are only 700,000 demonstrators in the streets of Buenos Aires.

Has anyone paid any attention to what is happening in Europe? The people are terribly upset because the benefits that were promised are not being delivered.

A reporter asked a lady why she voted for President Obama, and she said that he needs four more years to complete what he started in his first term.

Let me see if I understand correctly. He rammed through a health care bill that, according to the latest polls, 60 percent of Americans don’t like. It is going to cost millions of jobs, which has already begun. The whole game plan from the very beginning was to have a single payer health plan. When the whole country is on Obamacare, paid for with tax money, you will discover that the rich, middle class and the poor won’t have enough money to pay for the monstrosity.

That will be the day that you will see thousands marching in the streets of America, because Santa won’t be able to deliver.

He said that his top priority was to keep Americans safe. There has not been a terrorist attack on American soil since he took office. I was under the impression that Fort Hood, Texas, was part of American soil and when we have an ambassador in Benghazi, that is considered American soil. I suppose that the Fort Hood murders were just a radical Muslim social event, or as the president called it, work place violence. It appears to me that it is almost impossible for the president to say terrorist.

President Clinton was making a campaign speech for President Obama, in which he asked this question, “Do you want a president that will lie to you?” It appears to me that question was answered when Clinton was elected to two terms, and now President Obama. In my opinion, Mr. Ross Perot owes America an apology for screwing up the election that gave us the Clintons. I think things would have been much better if we had never heard of the Clintons.

Why does President Obama blame President Bush for the mess he inherited? It would be more in line with the truth if he blamed President Clinton for pressuring banks to make loans to the unqualified. For those that doubt what actually happened, read a New York Times article by Steven A. Holmes dated Sept. 30, 1999. You can find it on the Internet if you want to know the truth.

For those that think government meddling in health care will have a better outcome than meddling in the banking and housing market, I recommend that you go to a private school that does not teach government propaganda.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.
