LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Sick and tired
Do you remember hearing Hillary Clinton screaming, “I am sick and tired of people who say if you debate or disagree with this administration somehow you are not patriotic. We should stand up and say, we are Americans and we have a right to disagree with any administration.” Nancy Pelosi said that the swamp needed to be drained and I agree, but I see she and Senator Reid are still splashing around in the slime.
NOW HEAR THIS: Paradise Lost
During this past Fourth of July weekend, I did what I frequently do. I sat in my workshop enjoying a cool breeze, doing absolutely nothing except for trying to stay awake. As I looked to the south toward my shiny aluminum flagpole with Old Glory fluttering in that breeze, I did not feel the great patriotic sense of pride I normally have on this anniversary of the birth of our nation. Instead, I came very close to going out to the pole and lowering our national standard to half-mast to mourn the passing of our once great nation.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Our officials care
I take serious exception to Mr. Jay Cloward’s letter, “Big city, no care” (7/8/14) in which he states that it almost looks like the city wants to become a for-profit company and Weatherford has “become a city too big to care.”
PASTOR POPHIN: Joy in external conflict
Do you get the sense that Christians today face increasing opposition from our government concerning our faith and practice? Such issues include: 1) Prayer in school and at other public gatherings are being banned and looked down on; 2) the removal of the 10 Commandments from courthouses throughout our country; and 3) the challenges to the words “one nation under God” appearing in our Pledge of Allegiance. Therefore, we are seeing increased conflict between churches and our government.
KELLY: What do you think?
Reading, ‘riting and ‘rithmetic:
NOTES FROM THE JOURNEY: Worth fixin'
We call ourselves the “ROMEOS” – far from being skilled with the ladies, we are just “Retired Old Men Eating Out.” On Tuesdays over our favorite barbecue, the topics of our conversation are wide ranging. But one subject that often reoccurs is our frustration with computers that frequently breakdown and have to be taken to the shop for repair.
TISCIONE: Who are we?
I pray that you had a blessed celebration of our independence. We all have the Lord God to thank for the freedom we enjoy.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: What’s so good about President Obama?
I’m proud to live in an America where our great president has passed a health care bill, after five presidents (Republican and Democratic) over the last 50 years tried and failed. I want my America to be a place where not only the rich can receive affordable health care by all citizens alike. Here’s to you, President Obama. It saddens me to hear disrespectful and pernicious comments about the man who holds the highest office of our great country. I hope that good people all across Parker County will join me in prayer for our elected leadership.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Big city, no care
The City of Weatherford officials have deemed it necessary to increase costs of utilities and taxes so more pet projects can be paid for. This comes from a city that collects money each month for storm runoff during an extended drought.
TISCIONE: The top 10
Number one on the “Top Ten” list of the worst questions to ask in church is “Do we have free will?”
