    Ducking debt debate

    The administration focusing so much on the gun control debate takes people’s minds off of the major problems we face — the staggering debt, the debt ceiling, the Benghazi murders and the deficit that will affect every taxpayer and every consumer in the country. Whatever gun control plan they come up with will do nothing to lessen the problem and only will affect lawful gun owners.

    Sensible gun control needed

    I still believe the “love of money is the root of all evil.” Directly and indirectly, greed plays a big role in how and why so much deadly gun violence occurs in our country, possibly one of the most violent nations in history. Weapons of mass destruction made in America have been sold and distributed all over the world.

    Don’t feed the addiction

    Addiction usually is initiated when something occurs that causes the “addicted” to feel good. This “feeling good” becomes a self-fulfilling desire to repeat the process. This occurs even if the “feel good” turns out to be destructive or very counter-productive.

    Our federal government is addicted to doing things that make politicians “feel good” as a unit. They do this without addressing the full ramifications; therefore we have an unsustainable debt.

    No new debt limit

    We are in a situation which is few short years away from a complete financial collapse.

    This nation has been running annual deficits of more than $1 trillion for the past four years and our national debt is $16 trillion. What is our president’s solution? Tax increases for the job creators and four more years of deficit spending with a projected national debt of $20 trillion by 2017.

    This doesn’t touch the trillions in unfunded liabilities in Social Security, Medicare and state pension funds.

    Toddlers and tantrums

    As newborn children begin to move about, most parents employ strategies that protect the youngsters, those nearby and property. A simple and effective way to ward off trouble is removing objects that could be broken, thrown, eaten, etc., from the reach of curious hands.

    Vote no Tuesday

    On Tuesday, voters in Elizabethtown will make an important decision regarding the future of the city. They can vote no in opposition of expansion of alcohol sales, or yes in favor of bars.

    God has been lost

    Because of the massacre in Connecticut, we will be reeling with grief for a very long time. Twenty children and six adults snuffed out in seconds. Unspeakable.

    However, we’ve killed 1 million babies this year; babies who never will get to the first grade in school. We have laws that say that’s our right. Laws that are an abomination to God.

    Cure the disease

    Again we are faced with the senseless killing of innocent people, and for what reason?

    Immediately in times like these, people start making rash statements about how such horrendous acts of violence can be stopped. Will gun control stop such violence? Will banning the sale of fertilizer prevent another Timothy McVeigh from building a bomb and blowing up a building and killing hundreds? Or will banning airplanes prevent another terrorist attack that could kill thousands?
