    Taking jobs of legal residents

    The U.S. Chamber and Kentucky Chamber of Commerce have begun a hard push to legalize immigrants who will take the job of American citizens. What few there are available, anyway. With so many Americans unable to find work or after many giving up looking after not finding work, why would the chambers be involved in this?

    The Kentucky Chambers site states, “Allowing (illegals) to emerge from the shadows, creating a stable workforce.” Stable for who?

    Understand how to read polls

    In response to a recent letter regarding polls by The Courier-Journal and Lexington Herald-Leader concerning the McConnell-Grimes Senatorial election, the following should be considered.

    These polls are conducted by the two most liberal-progressive entities in the state.

    You should know how and why the questions in the polls are worded. If the pollsters wish to skew the results, the questions will be written to produce the desired result.

    Defending changes being made by IRS

    This is in regards to those warning of the IRS trying to restrict our freedom of speech. Congress passed a law creating tax-exempt social welfare organizations. By law, these organizations had to devote the majority of their activity, meaning money expenditures, to, believe it or not, social welfare issues, not politics.

    Polling information not good for Mitch
    I am not shocked after learning of the results of the recent Lexington Herald-Leader/WKYT Bluegrass Poll. According to the poll, Alison Lundergan Grimes holds a four-point advantage over U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. The two are expected to compete for the U.S. Senate seat in November if McConnell can defeat Tea Party candidate Matt Bevin in May.
    Grimes leads the poll 46 percent to 42 percent and that margin could increase if McConnell continues to be a champion of gridlock.

    Delay immigration reform

    Did ever a nation surrender its sovereignty to another without firing a shot or protesting? The illegals are taking our children’s jobs and our bread by getting welfare benefits. The Republicans are giving in with a proposal to grant illegals legal status, but not citizenship.

    If that passes, the ACLU and Democrats immediately will sue for citizenship for them and win.

    Nonprofits must focus energy

    Catching up on my reading, I saw the piece on Via Colori from Jan. 29.  I agree the event is wonderful; however, as a nonprofit agency that assists sexual assault victims and their families, I believe it should focus efforts on maximizing fundraising. If the event is not producing significant funding for its much-needed programs, then they should explore other avenues and allow the Via Colori festival to be organized by another organization or local resident, as suggested in the article.

    Congressmen put on notice

    House Republicans met last week to plan the demise of the Republican Party under the guise of “immigration reform.” This inappropriate and destructive action on the part of GOP leadership illustrates just how far out of touch the Republican Party is with mainstream Americans.
