    Trim from the top

    Recently published letters about reducing entitlement programs are being directed at Social Security. One writer identified himself as “civil service, retired on social security.”  There isn’t any such thing. People retired under the Civil Service Retirement System cannot receive social security benefits. I am retired civil service, not on Social Security.

    Republican voters should support Daniels/Rubio
    This month, Republican Party officials will select the next chairman of the Republican National Committee.
    However, it is not the election on the minds of most party members considering how the party fared in last year’s historic contests.
    The 2012 Republican presidential primaries will likely feature a number of personalities including Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, John Thune, Newt Gingrich and Tim Pawlenty.

    Where’s the protest
    Health? A 29-year-old English lady late in her pregnancy begins to bleed. Her husband rushes her to the emergency room. There she sits crying and bleeding for three hours wondering if the baby, herself or both will be lost before being attended.
    It’s coming near you if we don’t repeal Obama-non-care because many doctors will quit rather than participate and some won’t start that would have previously.

    Repetition in Kentucky’s voting habits
    Our country should be especially thankful that Sen. Mitch McConnell failed to become Senate Majority Leader following the midterm elections. He is all about money, power, partisan politics and serving the rich.
    McConnell has been one of our senators for 26 years. The fact we keep sending him back for six more years sure doesn’t say much for our state. It also doesn’t say much for Senate Republicans who made him their leader.

    Dream or nightmare
    Obama’s media wing, led by the three major networks, MSNBC and the Associated Press, continue to tell lies, half-truths and untruths concerning the so-called DREAM Act or, as most Americans call it, the Nightmare Act.

    The year in review
    As we approach the final few days of 2010 and anticipate the media’s annual year in review, I can’t help but to recall news coverage of two individuals whose short lives touched an entire community. The loss of life brought world events close to home.

    Unification alternative

    Much has been written, and even more has been said than written about chamber unification. In all of this there has been no discussion of alternatives allowed.
