    to atheists

    This is in response to the headline, “Atheists urge court to uphold ruling.” The American Humanist Association claims their constitutional rights were violated by city officials holding a day of prayer in the town square. They cite the 1st Amendment being violated, which is not true.

    Yes, the president lies

    In response to the editorial posted by Mr. Davis titled “has the President ever lied to us;” The story was interesting and topical; however, I was quite taken aback by the concluding sentence. It alluded to the notion that the present holder of office was like his predecessors. This is not a reflection of what we know.

    Wish Obama would go away quietly

    As I was considering to become a subscriber to Netflix I was dismayed to learn that Netflix signed a contract with the Obamas. Since leaving the White House, Obama has traveled around the world discrediting President Trump. It has reached a point where it borders on treason. Then, when I heard that Susan Rice was going to become a board member because of her outstanding integrity, I changed my mind.

    It’s very apparent that a “gun free” America is the ultimate goal of many in the far left who admittedly want to do away with our Secon Amendment. 

    Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens wrote that anti-gun activists should demand repeal of our Second Amendment.

    Hospital at TimberRidge
    A new hospital by Munroe Regional Medical Center (MRMC) is a bad idea. First it’s just a 64 bed hospital, and would be limited by it’s size. I’ve not read anywhere, that the Florida Hospital Association, or the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Hospitals (JCAH), has come out to support the hospital. The Llaw Judge has it right.

    The Sunshine State
    Florida is known as the Sunshine State, but the governor and the state Legislature do not believe in solar power. Florida has more than 600 miles of beaches and doesn't believe in hydro power.

    Freedom and responsibility
    Recently I sat thinking about the changes that have taken place in our culture over the past 50 years. I was reminded of something I wrote as a teacher when I began noticing the change in school classroom discipline: “When people possess self-discipline, there is freedom. When self-discipline is no longer present, government steps in and takes control.” That principle seems to apply from the smallest unit of society, the family, up through our classrooms, our communities, and our country.
