Opinion Letters

This is what Barack Obama said this week: "Where I can act on my own without Congress, I’m going to do so.”

"I've got a pen, and I've got a phone. And I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions ... and I've got a phone that allows me to convene Americans from every walk of life."

What in your face remarks those are. Imagine that. Barack Obama will act to make or change laws without Congress. Maybe he thinks we like that? Not so, Mr. President. These are arrogant, disgraceful statements made by a president of the United States. Barack Obama is saying he will do what is not allowed by the U.S. Constitution to further his own agenda. He is saying that the officials we the people elected to represent us in the United States Congress are of no matter to him. He is disdainful and demeaning to each and every member of Congress and therefore to we the people.


Mr. Ken Bowden's rebuttal to Mr. Odom's letter concerning global warming ended with the comment "Welcome to Al Gore's world folks!"

Let me remind Mr. Bowden that this is not Al Gore's world, it is God's world. He created it and He controls the climate.

Al Gore and the global warming scientists may speculate about what may happen in the future but they are usually wrong. Witness the ships trapped in the "melting Antarctic sea ice" in the middle of summer.


The mid-18th century philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau stated, “Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains.” He looked at man’s problems as though they where caused from social institutions and its rules.

Then in Ralph Waldo Emerson’s thinking, that the “self” could find truth and goodness to make a society moral, he stated, “Everyone for himself; driven to find all his resources, hopes, rewards, society, and deity, within himself.”


Are you concerned if you are in your 50s or late 40s that the Social Security fund could be running out of money a lot sooner than you think? In December, only 74,000 people found jobs and some of those may have been part time jobs.

The USA is going into the sixth year of high unemployment. Millions have left the work force which means they have not been putting money into the fund. Employers only pay into the fund when people are employed. Yet thousands of people could have been working building the Keystone Pipe Line and drilling for oil and natural gas.
