Republicans grumble over
U.S. debt, but they created it
Republicans complain about the national debt, but did they complain when Ronald Reagan tripled it, then when George Bush doubled it again? No!
But now they complain about the debt created by them years ago, blame it on Barack Obama, and want senior citizens, the disabled, the poor and veterans to pay for their previous uncontrolled spending.
Now they want to cut the budget, but not where it should be cut because that would hurt the corporate welfare they promote and perpetuate. Nothing but more malarkey from the Republicans to justify their obstructionist conduct.
David D. Casson
Grateful that letter writer has condensed arguments
I am please to see that David D. Casson has his idiotic ranting down to just two lines now. Is it too much to hope that his next letter will be just one line?
I’m amazed that he knew how to spell malarkey. Perhaps he has a dictionary!
Ten Commandments needed to teach our children right
The tragedies occurring in public schools are the result of political correctness, which makes no judgment of right or wrong because it has no moral standards.
The Bible does have moral standards of right and wrong, good and evil, obedient and disobedient, stated in the Ten Commandments for people to obey. Disobedience is sin, and sin must be punished.
Humanism is the worship of man as god. Without a standard to live by when tragedies occur, humanists must think of some reason to blame someone else, like poor relationship with a parent, being bullied or not being accepted or understood by others, or guns caused it.
The Ten Commandments were written by God on two tablets of stone and given to Moses to teach the children of Israel. America taught them in their early schools, until public schools were established, when atheists removed God’s Ten Commandments from being seen by schoolchildren. This action was directed by the father of lies himself, Satan.
Political correctness started in liberal, atheist colleges, then spread to public schools and some churches. Since public schools rejected the loving, merciful, forgiving God, the infinite God of all knowledge and power in the universe, God lifted his protection and blessings from public schools, resulting in these tragedies.
How many more tragedies need to occur before the public will demand the return of God and the Ten Commandments into our public schools?
It’s common sense that the understanding of the Ten Commandments by our children in public schools will cause them to think twice when they know there really is a severe punishment waiting for them in the lake of fire and brimstone (hell).
