Ted, white and blue
I fully support Ted Nugent’s right to have made the comments he made to the National Rifleman’s Association and do not feel they in any way support the cancellation of his appearance at the Moral Welfare and Recreation concert in June. My view, as a retired U.S. Army veteran, a retired Army sergeant major, is one that the commander(s) who made the decision felt that because Nugent made these comments with foresight and malice toward their commander-in-chief that intent implied.
Nugent said there was no threat implied by his comments. The comments he made were related to him and not Obama. The commander(s) who made the decision probably are selling their decision by saying it was for the good of the service, that Obama is the commander-in-chief and has to be defended. He sure in the heck can’t do it himself. I am insulted by the decision the commander(s) made.
Our soldiers who have and do fight so diligently for the defense of America are worth the lauds and accolades they receive. Nugent is a true patriot and loyal American who truly loves, fights for and defends the Constitution of the United States, and he hasn’t taken the oath. Yet the president took the oath, as outlined in Article II of the Constitution, to support and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies foreign and domestic, but rather invites them into the White House for tours and conferences, and does whatever he can to bypass the Constitution to get his way. How do we cancel his performance?
I know. First Tuesday in November, vote him out.
Hardin County voters have a major decision to make May 22. Who will be the next state representative?
I graduated from Central Hardin High School with Kendrick Bryan, and I support his candidacy. He is a political newcomer and he has the best platform of those running.
It is a fact that the area would benefit from job fairs and open town hall meetings. If elected, Bryan plans to hold these events as well as art contests, essay competitions and spelling bees.
The area needs an elected official who is free to lead. Bryan can be that individual because he is not accepting contributions from political action committees or special interest groups.
Education is commonly one of the biggest issues discussed by the Kentucky General Assembly, and Bryan has experience in the field. He is a graduate of Hardin County Schools and he is completing a master’s degree in school counseling. If the general assembly is going to continue altering our high-stakes testing model, the group would benefit if a local teacher is elected.
Our legislature needs bold leadership. Kentucky can’t afford more complacency and special sessions. Bryan helped turn WKU’s student government into one of the best associations in the country, and I have faith he will lead in our legislature by emphasizing civility and common ground.
Hardin County voters want honest government and Bryan recognizes this. He is willing to create a website for constituents to hold him accountable. The public site would feature his voting record as well as logs displaying his office expenditures and visitors.
Bryan is an advocate of responsible budgets and fiscal restraint. We have a debt crisis at the state and national levels. It is time to elect new officials to solve the issues. The current cast is not getting the job done in Frankfort.
I also support Bryan’s campaign because he is willing to travel to schools to listen to students and teachers. Bryan understands the value of a listening tour.
On May 22, I encourage voters to enhance the Heartland by electing Kendrick Bryan as the district’s state representative.
