Letter: America’s original sin should be fought

David Hooper warns that readers should “expect a crisis every six to 12 months (now that Obama has been re-elected). That’s Chicago politics.” But John Boehner told ABC’s “This Week” the truth. That is, he agreed with Obama that we do not have a debt crisis at this time. That’s Republican crisis politics.

James W. Clark gave readers “the formula for absolute control.” “Destroy all religious belief in God, the Bible and the Commandments,” as if the Commandments are not a part of the Bible. Since Americans — 90 percent plus — believe in God, there is no reason to Clark’s crazy fear. And even with only 20 percent of Christians attending religious services weekly and about 50 percent who attend for Christmas, Easter, a wedding or a death, we still have a Christian culture so-to-speak to combat barbarism at the gates. But wouldn’t it be great if Christians across America would fight off America’s original sin: Racism, aka hatred for Obama?

The battering Republicans suffered in 2012 — particularly among women, blacks and Latinos — seems finally to have worked its way into Reince Priebus’ cerebral cortex. But have no fear; they will simply get rid of Priebus as party leader. They just can’t give up their divisive policies, and defending Bush’s war of choice with Iraq that should have never happened. What a cadre of liars.

Even the Fed’s chief, Ben Bernanke, a Republican, says that further stimulus is necessary. Yet, some Republicans believe Obama is “Satan.”

  • 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: Anderson's annexed areas still lack business On July 10, 2014, at the Anderson City Council meeting, the executor of the estate was shut off from speaking, because she did not live in Adams Township, and the person from Adams Township tried to get up and speak was not allowed to. The council rushed the vote for zoning the land for business.

  • Letter: Birth control, abortion should be woman's choice Why are Republicans so gung-ho on restricting birth control and abortion? That's easy. Republican legislators are so unpopular because they don't legislate and literally block all bills that would help the middle and lower income classes.

  • Bannon, Tom Viewpoint: Paramount is an investment that is paying dividends About 25 years ago the citizens of Anderson made a decision that would have a long lasting impact on the community. Instead of saving the old Paramount Theatre, which had fallen into serious disrepair, it was decided that the easy and prudent decision was to get rid of the building to create additional downtown parking. Shortly after the Paramount came down, the community got rid of another abandoned structure when the old Carnegie Building, which was the former home of the Anderson Public Library, was torn down.

  • Letter: Wall Street should not be in politics Talk about corruption, ponzi schemes, we're looking at you, Wall Street, controlling the prices of our food, gasoline and clothing we must buy and about every company in America — while trashing President Obama, the Affordable Health Care Plan, along with every Democrat, to influence our elections, at the same time.
