    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.

    Romney and Ryan will fix Medicare

    Recently, several cartoonists have joined the “Mediscare” efforts attempting to misrepresent if not out right lie about Congressman (now GOP vice president choice) Paul Ryan’s budget plan. Like many years prior, the liberals are attempting to scare senior citizens. Truth is the Ryan plan made no changes to Medicare for people 55 years or older but did offer changes to Medicare for future generations.

    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.
