Letters to the Editor – May 19, 2013

A rare opportunity

Dear Editor,

Do you remember the “MISSION ACCOMPLISHED” sign that the personnel on the USS Abraham Lincoln displayed to greet President Bush when he went out to greet them?

The sign was made by the sailors and airmen, but from the fire storm that it caused, you would think that the president constructed the sign and climbed up and placed it all by himself.

President Obama says that Osama Bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive. He thinks that he has completely eradicated Al Qaeda when he killed Bin Laden. In my opinion that is the reason that he failed to provide security for the people in Benghazi. In his mind the terrorists will leave us alone if we show them what nice people we are, we don’t even display weapons.

I don’t have a lot of respect for a commander and chief that tells his underlings to take care of the attack on Benghazi. He leaves the room and is not to be found until the next day. He has got to go to a fundraising event in Nevada.

Have you noticed that he is never present when there is a serious decision to be made? The man does not want his name connected to any thing, that might be detrimental to his constant campaigning.

Campaigning is the only thing that he does well. In a speech to the graduating class at Ohio State University he said that there will be those who will warn you against big government, but don’t pay any attention to them. He mentioned getting your children in school sooner. In my opinion that is the reason that we have so many liberal educators. The sooner you start the better chance that you have of creating more little socialist voters. Instead of listening to that hare brain nonsense, it would be wise to teach your children what happens to those that follow the teaching of Karl Marx.

    We seem to be constantly bombarded with complicated situations that call for making an informed decision. Of course, generally, all would want to do the right thing.

    American Profile Magazine pictured Big Tex in its feature about state fairs with the appropriate caption: “Big Tex towers over visitors to the Texas State Fair.” The article also wrote about the many famous wooden roller coasters including the “Classic” wood roller coaster.

  • 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.
