Opinion Letters

The Friends of the Scottish Museum wish to thank the Main Street businesses for their support of "Burns Night," held on Saturday, Jan. 19. We also greatly appreciate, as always, the use of Tartan Hall for this event. The Presbyterian Church congregation has added quite a few new banners along the hall. No other site in Western North Carolina could enhance the occasion better.

We thank Boy Scout Troop #298 (Rick Moninghoff and Bill Edwards, leaders) for serving the meal and to the Troop Committee for cleanup. We appreciate Martha Peek, the chef from Angel hospital for the elaborate Scottish menu she prepares, and to Sue Ann McMaster for making scones for everyone.


A month or so ago, I saw a interview of a young man that was going to sell or put up for bid the rights of his last name. I didn't catch all of his reasoning for all of this, but he did state that he came from a dissolved family of a dad and several step-dads and as far as he could see, his family name had no value or purpose for him. Although this seems strange, I believe this is the sentiment of many in today's modern society, especially our younger generation. They may see value in life because their age group is the largest growing age group against abortion, largely due to science showing it’s not a glob of tissue but an actual form of a human being within weeks after conception. But the finding of their own value and purpose in life seems far reaching and difficult.


In the Jan. 2 edition of The Franklin Press, a person sent in a rant concerning the use of musical instruments in church.

Their rant read: “Whatever happened to just an organ and piano in church? Some of the music in churches nowadays is inappropriate. The Bible says make a joyful noise but not an inappropriate one.”

The Bible says make a joyful noise unto the Lord. It does not say anything about appropriate or inappropriate.


Don't let anyone tell you there's no conspiracy or that conspirators are not busily at work here in our "exceptional" country full of "superior" people.

It's not written anywhere. There's no "agenda" to read or way to order your very own printed copy. You won't find it on a site like Google, where you can select from an assortment of opinion written by various authors (many offer valid research based on facts but, sadly, others promote flawed opinion).

But, yes, there is definitely a conspiracy out there working against you and me. It's organized by those multi-billionaires often called Plutocrats or Oligarchs. It's advanced by well-paid minions and media shills, leaders and members of groups like "ALEC". Most names are readily available and have been publically reported. They've spent billions on past elections to influence your thinking so you'll slavishly allow them to control you, your children, and the future of our country.
