Letter: Disturbing trends lead to questions

Why has the federal government purchased over 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition since last spring? The Department of Homeland Security, FEMA, the National Weather Service, and Social Security Administration all have stockpiled ammunition. The question is why? Why haven't the people heard an explanation?Here's something else — 450 million of those rounds are hollow point bullets. These bullets are designed to expand when they hit their targets, to slow down so that they do not penetrate the target completely, and to achieve maximum tissue damage and blood loss.Please consider that it's not the military acquiring or stockpiling these rounds. It's the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies. They operate within the United States. Why won't the media cover things like this? The answer is much clearer than many want to acknowledge or perceive. That said, people will definitively know the answer to that question in due time.There was an interesting book written by Cleon Skousen in 1958 titled "The Naked Communist." In his book, Skousen cited 45 declared goals of the Communist Party to destroy the United States from within. Much has come to pass with amazing accuracy since that time. It's clear that our nation has taken an ungodly and much more socialist direction. Unfortunately, these developments will, in time, rob the United States of its sovereignty.Turn from God and you'll reap destruction. May we, as citizens, repent before God, and intercede for our government. God is the only one who can right this ship.Michael ImhofAnderson

  • Letter: President's trade being swept under rug My question to all, why do we keep hearing after a number of months about the shootings in Colorado, Sandy Hook, etc., but yet the president illegally deals with terrorists, trades five for a believed deserter and now it is being swept under the rug?

  • Letter: New glass ceiling is $12 an hour All those libertarians, tea party, conservatives (dupes of the rich) are leading America's middle class and poor into poverty and depression.

  • Letter: Constitution, laws being trampled Nancy Pelosi said, "When it comes to protecting the children I'm a lioness!" Too bad that doesn't include the babies who are ripped from the womb. How ironic to hear the progressive liberals talk of compassion for illegals while killing our own.

  • Letter: Liberal says 'illegal' should be taboo Did you see where a well-known liberal wants to do away with the "I" word? 'I' as in "illegal."

  • Viewpoint: Panhandlers give wrong impression of our city First of all, let me start off by saying that I have as much empathy and compassion for those less fortunate as the next person.

  • Viewpoint: Voters, especially seniors, should ask questions It’s that time of year again. Kids are getting ready for school, corporations are reviewing their semi annual reports and — yes — many seniors are filling out their absentee ballots. Some are voting because they are fed up with the status quo, some out of habit and some because they feel it is their civic duty.

  • Viewpoint: Adding such a robust water resource with Mounds Lake would set us apart I have lived in Madison County most of my life, and for the past 14 years, I served on the Town Council in Pendleton, recently retiring as president. I have watched with great interest the happenings around the proposed Mounds Mall for a few reasons.

  • Letter: Dr. David and Kay Mares are local treasures Throughout history we have had treasures that were not appreciated until years or centuries after their time. The lost art of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. The terra cotta men of China. Vincent Van Gogh was a failing, starving artist in his time. Now his works are some of the world’s most valued. Madison County has a prize of its own that should be recognized in its time.

  • Letter: Reservoir promotion has circus approach P.T. Barnum is starting his tour to promote the reservoir by going to all the towns surrounding the dream. Rob Sparks is this town's P.T. Barnum.

  • Letter: Repentance is key to surviving times What happens to a nation that refuses to repent before God? What happens to a nation that had strong Christian beginnings, but now more closely resembles Sodom and Gomorrah?
