Letter: Government free from penalties of scandals

Did someone mention the word scandal? Let's just list a few as we remember that Richard Nixon faced impeachment proceedings for only Watergate. Consider the following:- Fast and furious — The government sold 2,500 high-powered weapons to the Mexican drug cartel. They used these guns to kill hundreds of Mexican citizens, and at least one U.S. border patrol agent.- Benghazi — Four Embassy Americans were murdered. This scandal was re-ignited by two whistle blowers who testified before a congressional panel. What really happened?- IRS — It was revealed that the IRS was targeting conservatives, Christians, tea party members, and those who teach the Constitution. At least 500 American groups are persecuted, a list that grows in time.- News media persecution — The government seized phone records of The Associated Press and did the same to a Fox news reporter, threatening him with espionage and treason on something of common knowledge. Freedom of press oppression is blatant.- National Security Agency -- Telephone records of Americans are seized and stored in a massive computer system built in Utah. This includes cellphone calls, land line calls, Internet communications, Facebook communication, and probably more. This is a massive intrusion into the privacy of Americans and violates the Constitution.- State Department corruption — It's learned that State Department employees are misusing State Department credit cards to buy drugs and pay for illicit sex (prostitution).It appears that this administration does what it wants with impunity. How can this be?

  • 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: 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: 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: 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?
