LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Here we go again


I think it’s time for people to stand up and say enough is enough. NO MORE TAXES. Maybe it’s time for a Tea Party.


Donald Pengelly, Aledo

Reader again takes issue with other’s opinion

Dear Editor,

I cannot believe the Democrat printed Richard Feuilly’s outrageous column in the Tuesday, Aug. 14, edition. He uses other people’s words to claim the President of the United States, a majority of both houses of Congress and the Supreme Court colluded to place “death panels” in the Affordable Healthcare Act. He has taken the words of good men and the prattle of fools and combined them into a vile conspiracy that does not exist.

He also imagines that a single payer national health care plan, like Medicare, involves some kind of plot to deny the rest of us good health care. He would apparently have the selection of the recipients for organ transplants based on media attention and popularity instead of medical science and fair play.

He cannot seem to understand that a constitution that does not evolve and adapt to the present and future needs of a country will soon go the way of the dinosaurs.

Each sentence of Mr. Feuilly’s column attempts to have a lie accepted as truth and truth limited to his slanderous statements. If his world was the real world he would have already been arrested by one of his evil government agencies for treason. Instead, it is those agencies that protect his right to defame the men and women who serve us all. Mr. Feuilly uses fear in an attempt to create the carnage that destroys loyalty to a common cause and principles. He would have hate and distrust rule the minds of Americans, to what goal, I cannot fathom.

I beg people of conscious to speak up and reject these perversions of free speech and truth. If we allow perversions of truth to replace history, those perversions may become history for our children and grandchildren. It has happened before.


Dennis Tilly, Weatherford
