    On civil rights

    After reading a letter in Sept. 7’s edition of The News-Enterprise, I feel compelled to write this letter. The Sept. 7 letter promulgates the preposterous notion that the Democratic Party was and is against the civil rights movement. This letter is an insult to my intelligence, my memory, my moral convictions and my life’s experience.

    District drops the ball

    In response to Chuck Jones’ column in the Sports section Thursday, Sept. 6, I want to respond to the Facebook picture of the outrageous conduct of 10 Central Hardin football players with three guns and a bat pretending to shoot an Elizabethtown football player, and the lack of appropriate response by the coach, principal and the apparent non response by Hardin County Schools Superintendent Nannette Johnston.

    Republicans want to break chains
    I heard the comments from Vice President Joseph Biden in which he told a group of Americans that Mitt Romney and the Republican Party “wants to put y’all back in chains.” This was made in Virginia which was part of the Confederacy in which generations of black Americans lived and died in chains.

    Appreciation from CASA

    On behalf of the Board of Directors of CASA of the Heartland, I want to thank you for your support and generosity as a contributing sponsor for this year’s Casablanca event.

    Between ticket sales, sponsorships and a silent auction, CASA of the Heartland hosted the most successful Casablanca event to date. This tremendous success would not have been possible without your help.

    Communities’ giving nature appreciated

    A few weeks ago, on Aug. 10, our family had the pleasure of witnessing an outpouring of love and support from our friends, family and community. At the Big Clifty Community Center, more than 100 people gathered to share food and fellowship at a benefit for my wife, Garnett, and myself.

    Democrats, check out the tea party
    It is not a well-kept secret that the elite of the Democratic Party look down on the working class they depend on to stay in power. A review of the leftist blogs will show that.

    Marijuana vs. flouride

    I noticed the article printed in The News-Enterprise Tuesday, Aug. 28, titled “Study: Teenagers who routinely use marijuana before age 18 may see long-term declines in IQ.” To me, this is a good reason to discourage pot use among young people.

    Deal with the facts

    Are facts relevant any more when it comes to political discussions?

    Republicans don’t want big government running everything; are against regulations for businesses; want the government out of our personal lives; want people to take responsibility for their own decisions in life.

    Yet they contradict themselves when it comes to the abortion debate. They tell the woman she can’t have one. Is this a new form of slavery created by the Republicans and the religious institutions of this country?

    Yes, they did

    In his recent news conference, President Barack Obama said, “Nobody accused Mr. Romney of being a felon.”

    In July, Stephanie Cutter, the president's deputy campaign spokeswoman, said “Either Mitt Romney, through his own words and signature, was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the Securities Exchange Commission, which is a felony, or he was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the American people.”

    Laughable idea

    The idea that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will fix Medicare is inaccurate, to put it mildly.

    President Barack Obama has not taken any money from Medicare for new Obamacare programs. The $716 billion he proposes are in savings taken from the supply side, ie., from health care providers, fraud and waste, over the next 10 years. The same study that backs the president’s plan also says seniors will be strapped with another $6,000-plus expense every year by the so-called Romney plan. Some fix.
