    A good problem?

    “Schools like to have a full house,” Mark Thomas said in an Aug. 15 article in The News Enterprise (HCS enrollment up, teachers needed).

    “Large classes create some problems, but they are good problems to have,” he said. 

    These comments were made after an unexpected growth spurt in Hardin County Schools.

    The increase in students forced classes to begin with an absurd student/teacher ratio, over-crowded classrooms, shifting and moving students, and combining classrooms.

    Progressives must go

    If you want to believe in something, then believe in it. Just because something isn’t true, that’s no reason you can’t believe in it. Just don’t expect me to believe in it, too. What you should not believe in is things that have been proven not to work. Things like Marxism, collectivism, socialism, communism, Leninism, Maoism or liberalism. These all are birds of a feather and all are by definition progressive forms of government. A form of government that history teaches has never worked.

    Let’s pick our own fights
    As a black man, I feel too many prominent blacks in the liberal machine obviously haven’t experienced real racism. How can they feel racism and discrimination against homosexuals are the same if the mechanics of each situation are different? Racism and sexism are both driven by immediate visual acquisition. Potential victims of either don’t have to say or do anything.

    Not the time to change fuel standard

    Kentucky has been hit hard by the drought, and corn supplies will be tight in the commonwealth, but now is not the time to ask for changes to the Renewable Fuel Standard, which has led to 400,000 jobs in rural America, reduced dependence on foreign oil, and lowered the price of fuel at the pump for all consumers, not to mention improving our air quality at the same time.

    Honoring promises

    “A deal is a deal.” “A man’s word is his bond.” How many times have you heard these? While it is pleasantly refreshing to meet people who try to live up to those ideals, it is equally telling when you run across those who don’t.

    Where is the investigation?

    On July 20 it was reported that a telephone bomb threat was made on the Detroit Tigers where 33,000 people were in attendance at a game with the L.A. Angels in Comerica Park. The ball park incident followed two separate bomb threats made on the Detroit’s Windsor Tunnel and the Ambassador Bridge. Both connect the U.S. to Canada and are very busy international commerce crossings. On July 10, the IRS offices were evacuated because of a suspect delivery, and a similar thing occurred at the Cobo Hall Convention Center.

    In response to previous letter

    The writer of the Aug. 7 letter who opposes Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy’s stance on same-sex marriage felt the need to reference the Bible to support her argument. I have to reply to the biblical misconceptions in her letter. She  repeats the tired, old, liberal secularist argument the homosexual lifestyle should not be forbidden in Christianity because, to use her words, “Jesus never said anything about gays.”

    Be compelled to do more

    Kudos to Jody Ingalls for her clear and compelling letter defending Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy’s support of “the Biblical definition of a family” (Support Chick-fil-A, July 29). It has been encouraging and impressive to see what a powerful response his remarks have received.
