6/27 Letters to the Editor

Don’t miss out on your opportunity

Dear Editor:

I just went and voted again at early voting. That is one of the benefits of being a citizen. You get to vote for the people you want in governmental offices.

Why join marches if you cannot vote? Sure, you are making a statement. Yes, on the initial level your voice is being heard, at least by those standing close to you. Only thing is, where are you when the votes are counted. No where.

Do you complain about what this guy or that guy is doing in public office? Did you allow your voice to be heard at the polls? No? Then you shouldn’t complain, because you didn’t participate in the voting process.

That is why it is so important to do what you have to do to become a citizen. That is also why it is so important that as a citizen of the U.S. you go vote. You participate in the process. Nothing gets changed unless you do what you are supposed to do. Nothing gets changed unless you cast your ballot. It is your chance to vote your conscience. It is a time when they actually ask our opinion and we can give it.

So, even if you didn’t get out and vote this time? Vote the next time you are given the opportunity. It won’t be much longer until you are able to vote for our next president. You don’t want to miss out on that one, do you?

Time for a change in 2012

Dear Editor:

I watched the anointed one speak the other night about the oil spill. That man can certainly give a fine speech especially if there is no truth in it. While he was running around, after the spill, looking for someone’s a _ _ to kick (his words). He could have instead, accepted the Dutch’s government’s offer five days after the blowout to send their fleet of experienced oil recovery vessels with 10 times the capacity of what we are now using two months later to try to keep the oil from reaching our shores.

See the Houston Chronicle June 8, 2010. Later he blamed BP for the delay in getting ships busy skimming oil, etc., neglecting to mention the White House’s earlier refusal.

 But no, the Hussein White House blew them off saying we didn’t need “no stinking” foreign help. Some will say that the Jones Act prevented foreign ships from entering the Gulf, but Barack hasn’t let the law stop any other of his actions. Had you or I been one of several of his tax cheat appointees, we would be in prison instead of becoming his assistants in ruining America.

Remember the old saying, “Birds of a feather flock together?” The president’s arrogance and ignorance will be the downfall of America if we don’t get him and his progressive liberal allies out of office, starting this November. The election in 2012 of a Republican president and additional conservative congressmen will enable us to repeal Obamacare and other power grabbing policies on Obama’s agenda.  

Those old enough to remember the Black Panthers and the Weathermen Underground movements from the middle of the last century should recognize Barack’s friend, radical terrorist Bill Ayers, as a member. You might even have seen several of the old members in the latest iteration of these Black Flag Revolutionaries the other day with Van Jones (remember him?) addressing a meeting on “the taking over of America” (they haven’t given up their goals).

He no longer feels it will be necessary to kill 10 percent of our American population (primarily old veterans who need re-education) to gain control of America now that they have their man in the White House. The great Omnipotent Wonderful Fantastic Glorious All Knowing Generous Loving Leader (that’s how socialistic countries refer to their dictators you know) Barack Hussein Obama will deliver America into their hands without any violent conflicts necessary.
