Why attack Iran and consider Israel an ally?
I can’t figure out why everyone is so “gun ho” about attacking Iran. And, I can’t figure out why everyone considers Israel to be an ally and an asset.
On the first issue, the Iranian dictators enjoy being dictators. They will not upset the gravy train by trying to lob a nuke into Tel Aviv. Their belligerence is for domestic consumption. One merely has to note the level of corruption in that country and the notion that they can’t wait for martyrdom is beyond belief.
On the second issue, I don’t think America gets any benefit from Israel. In fact, I think Israel is a huge liability. Billions of dollars are spent propping up a country that is as racist as Alabama under George Wallace. I think that the real reason politicians don’t reflect this reality is that they are too busy accepting campaign donations from Israel’s supporters. I think our country would be much better off strategically and economically if Israel did not receive such favored attention from our country. Absolutely, the last thing we need is for Israel to goad America into spilling our soldier’s blood and our country’s resources for their benefit only.

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.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Concern for your pocketbooks
Dear Editor: My message today is to Democrats out in Parker County and the middle class and moderate-income Republicans in towns and rural areas.
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: 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!
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.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Good company, better service
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.
