    Cooperation trumps polarization

    It was disheartening for me to read a letter in Thursday’s edition of The News-Enterprise, titled “No white flags.”

    When President George W. Bush won re-election in 2004, with a bit smaller popular vote than President Barack Obama’s, he let it be known that his victory gave him political capital. In that spirit I would remind the writer that Obama has been freely re-elected by a majority.

    Enough opposition

    Never in the history of the United States has the opposition held a meeting and decided that no matter what the policy, even if it were good for the country, they are going to object and block the policy. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich informed us of that.

    Bell ringers needed

    It is that time of the year again when the Salvation Army needs volunteer bell ringers.

    All it takes is to give them a call or drop by at the Salvation Thrift Store on North Mulberry Street (U.S. 62) to sign up.

    When I dropped by on Election Day and signed up, they still had plenty of openings for more signatures.

    You probably already know it, but all money donated through the program stays right here in the Hardin County area to assist the folks here who need help.

    Doctor, patient have hearing problems

    I went for my first visit to my new doctor. Everything was going fine until my phone rang. I didn’t want it to keep ringing because it would have rang three more times loudly. So I answered the phone. He was busy typing on his little computer anyway. I tried to hurriedly get off and he got up and said as he went out the door that he would be back when I got off the phone.

    I know it is considered rude when you answer your phone while you are with a doctor, but what do you do if it keeps ringing?

    Be careful what you ask for

    In October 2009, then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told Congress the Affordable Health Care Act, aka Obamacare, would be voted on the day after the 2,500-plus page bill was given to members of Congress. The vote went along party lines with the majority Democrats passing the bill.

    If ever there was a great example of oxymoron, calling this bill “affordable” is it. There is nothing affordable about it.
