    Politics and thugery defined

    Quite a few years ago I wrote a letter to the editor explaining what politics is. After listening to national and local newscasts over the past few weeks, I have come to the conclusion that many of the anchors/reporters have no concept of what politics is. I am certain they do not teach it in journalism school.

    Top 10 folly

    I read with great interest that Elizabethtown has surpassed Henderson in population. With the city now in the top 10, why are the city fathers still perpetuating the fiction of a fourth-class city and levying an illegal restaurant tax?

    Congress needs to investigate IRS

    On May 10, America learned the IRS – perhaps the most frightening of all government agencies – has been singling out and targeting conservative groups, including tea party groups. The IRS has waged a three-year war against the tea party, harassing our groups and even auditing our individual members. This abuse of power is unacceptable and unconstitutional, and it must stop.

    McConnell wrong on background checks

    In a recent survey, 82 percent of Kentucky voters supported background checks on gun purchases.

    The loopholes must be closed to provide greater security to Kentucky and the rest of our great nation. The gun industry has spent over $198,000 in helping to get Mitch McConnell elected to office. Elected officials should not be bought.

    May: A celebration of service

    Over the years, the month of May has become a time for honoring and remembering men and women who served our nation. The month of May includes Military Spouse Appreciation Day on May 10, Armed Forces Day on May18, Memorial Day on May 27; and, in 1999, Congress designated the entire month of May as Military Appreciation Month.
