LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Reader tired of letter writer

Reader tired of letter writer

Dear Editor,

Every week in the Letters to the Editor, Mr. Feuilly has something to say negative about President Obama and the Democrats.

He as much as called President Obama a communist (Letters, Aug. 20). As I have said before I am sure Mr. Feuilly cashes his Social Security check each month. However, if he doesn’t need it he could give it back to the government.

If he is so fed up with how the country is being run he should be writing to the Republican House speaker. Oh, I forgot, he’s the one who can’t find his way to the White House. If the speaker would get over his hatred of the president, maybe the government could get back to doing what they should be doing.

Mr. Feuilly can always get a passport and move to some other country of his choosing. I am tired of reading his rambling letters. I can remember when the Democrats saved this country back in the 1930s and ‘40s.

Ken Hamilton, Weatherford

Burgers gone wild

Dear Editor,

How and when did my mother’s hamburgers evolve from a healthy combination of bread, meat and vegetables into a heart attack in a wrapper?

Hamburgers once came with one-quarter-inch-thick meat patty. Now burgers have two or even three patties. To make it even higher in unhealthy fat, cheese and bacon are layered between those patties. And if it’s still not unhealthy enough, you can get a nice greasy layer of mayo added, and have the vegetables held.

Many restaurants serve a burger with a patty so thick, no human mouth could possibly bite a piece off, unless all the other ingredients have been reduced or removed.

Also, when did ordering a burger become an involved social process of questions and answers? Even fast food establishments routinely ask if I want fries, tater tots, onion rings, white or yellow cheese, peppers, mustard, mayo, barbecue sauce and whole grain buns, as if that could make their monster somehow healthy. And just before they tell me the cost, they ask if I would like to super size my order.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Immigration: Wow! Where are all these illegal boys and girls coming from, and why? The “why” is a big question! I’m sure 5-year-olds are not coming for a better life and income.

  • tiscione, lou.jpg TISCIONE: Signs and seals

    God gave the church signs and seals. These are called sacraments or holy ordinances. They are both holy and commanded. There are two sacraments instituted by Jesus Christ. They are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. These sacraments are often referred to as “secondary doctrine.” They are secondary not because they are unimportant. They are secondary because they are not necessary for salvation.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Response to 'Blame game'

    Dear Editor: It’s not drug cartels telling Central Americans their children won’t be turned away at the border, it is the actions of this administration with its refusal to secure the border and its unilateral rewriting of immigration law. As has been shown, this president and his administration have for some time lied about the security of the border and immigration enforcement.
