KELLY: What do you think XVlll

By WILLIAM J. KELLY

Did you miss this?

The last time Thanksgiving Day and Hanukkah came at the same time was in 1888. This time it was on Nov. 28, 2013. Get this! The next time this will occur will be 79,043 years from now. The Jewish Talmud describes Hanukkah as a “Holiday of Thanksgiving.” One Jewish man bought a loaf of Jewish challah bread in the shape of a turkey. These facts are from an article by Jeff Karoub. Who will be around in 79,043 years to celebrate? What do you think?

Population Research Institute

I received a bulletin on Nov. 29 from Steven W. Musher stating that before Obama became president it was illegal for the federal government to fund abortion. PRI proved by documentation that Planned Parenthood illegally used federal funds to kill babies.

Congress then dropped a $195 million grant to Planned Parenthood.

The institute also proved that U.S. abortionists were illegally using federal funds to bankroll abortion in China and many other countries. Congress then yanked all support of the UN Population Fund for seven years running. That amounts to $800 million of taxpayers’ dollars saved. I applaud the PRI! What do you think?

Guns in schools

I am against guns in schools. A school is not an armed camp of some kind. I believe they will do more harm than good. It also sets the wrong idea in motion that a single armed guard will deter a nut case who wants to shoot up the place — not possible. Just take a look at the size of most schools today and also the fact that many campuses have multiple buildings in their complex, and you can see the problem.

I think a police car of the local police department should include, in making its rounds, a trip through and around the school complex at varying times during school hours. That would be a satisfactory and better solution to the problem. Permitting teachers to be armed is a very, very bad idea. What do you think?
