    Bogus governing
    “Bogus” is defined as simulated/counterfeit/sham/synthetic. Kentucky’s governor should be known as Gov. “Bogus” Beshear.
    Why? His leadership (or lack thereof) is bogus. In January 2010, he proposed such a poor budget that his version tanked in the Democratic House and the Republican Senate because both parties realized expanded gambling as proposed by Beshear was wrong for Kentucky.

    No comparison
    It sickens me to read the national media comparing the Wall Street demonstrators with the tea parties across America. Such gross ignorance is beyond belief. Let me explain.

    Jobs Act not serious
    President Barack Obama was in Ohio recently to promote his American Jobs Act using the Brent Spence Bridge. The bridge is just one of 15 such bridges in the U.S. that need reworking. Why didn’t Obama use the American citizen’s stimulus money two years ago for bridges that are in need of repair instead of giving the money to bankrupt Solyndra “green” company?

    Concerning Jobs Act
    There’s a lot to support in the American Jobs Act — President Barack Obama’s plan to create jobs and help the economy right now.
    The act includes new tax cuts to help our small businesses hire staff, invest and grow.
    It includes tax credits to support businesses that hire veterans and invests $35 billion to prevent the layoffs of up to 280,000 teachers, support the hiring of tens of thousands more, and keep cops and firefighters on the job.

    What kind of country do we want?
    The debates leading up to the 2012 presidential election should be structured in such a way to help voters see the contrasting views of the candidates on the issues. America needs to decide in the next 14 months what kind of nation we want to be.

    One-term Obama
    A recent writer accused Jay Ambrose of cheap shots but fired some at George W. Bush. From 2006 until this past midterm election, Democrats controlled both the Congress and the Senate. Don’t place all of the blame on “W.”

    Governor without grit?
    Thanks to Marilyn Parker of Louisville for her letter to the editor titled “The Absentee Beshear” published in the Sept. 27 edition of The News-Enterprise. She firmly stated what I’m sure many thousands of Kentucky taxpayers are concerned about in regard to the governor and his very poor fiscal management of the state, his shifting of taxpayer money to balance the budget and his failure to address the state’s enormous debt caused by unfunded mandates promised to unions.

    Morality can’t be redefined
    First of all, it amazes me that many folks say expanded alcohol sales is strictly an economic issue. These same folks, I’m sure, would agree the laws we have against perjury, public nudity, murder, drugs, etc. are good laws, yet these are moral issues as well. You can’t redefine what is moral and what is not. We must choose to live by morals and not convenience. By the way, they used to put beer in a brown bag when you purchased it. Now you can carry a 12 pack right out the front door in plain sight.

    Economics 101 proof
    Have you ever been in a Hardin County convenience store when an out-of-town patron comes in and asks where the beer is? Have you seen that look of incredulousness, disappointment and frustration on that non-local’s face, when all they wanted after a hard day of driving was to get their favorite cold beer, go back to their hotel room and relax?

    Alcohol sales an economic issue
    On Oct. 4, the residents of Vine Grove, Radcliff and Elizabethtown have a choice to make on expanded alcohol sales — yes or no. Before you vote, know the facts.
    97 percent of the United States allows the legal sale of alcohol in their communities. That makes our community, with only limited sales, a pretty unique place to live. But, the truth of the matter is, this is not a great selling point in attracting new business.
