Letter: Democrats should check Snowden's leaks

Running away is not best advice

Americans, you now have a “duty” to turn tail and run when you are confronted with danger; so says United States Attorney Eric Holder. This is the most absurd thing I think I’ve ever heard from a government official. They are telling you to chicken out when you are threatened. I don’t think it’s in the American makeup to run away.

Certainly, there was a miscarriage of justice in the George Zimmerman trial. But, Castle Doctrine was not the cause of it. Remember the jury? It was they who found Zimmerman not guilty. There is nothing wrong with Castle Doctrine laws. Every American citizen has the right to defend themselves and what is theirs. Not so, says the attorney general. You have a “duty” to retreat from danger. Thank God this bunch wasn’t in office when the Japanese clobbered Pearl Harbor. Otherwise, Japanese would be the official language in America today.

Every American, whether they be a NRA member or just an honest law-abiding gun owner, or a plain lover of freedom, should make a commitment right now, to “stand your ground” against these attacks on your freedom.

Al Sharpton, Hillary Clinton and all the liberal stalwarts are leading the charge to eliminate the Castle Doctrine laws. They are speechless (almost) with outrage. What I would like to know is, where was all this outrage when O.J. Simpson got off the hook when two people were killed? Where were the marches, the speeches, the sign toters? Need I tell you? They were all busy celebrating.

Wake up, America, or you may one day wake to a country that is no longer free.

Democrats should check Snowden’s leaks

The Democrats in Congress should look into Edward Snowden’s leaks, to see if any of this highly classified information went to the Republican Party. They are now investigating Democrats and President Obama about similar matters that could have come from this possible traitor.

To keep Snowden protected, it seems the South American Ecuadorians are willing to forfeit millions of U.S. trade benefits. I have one thing to say about this. Can you welcome the 101st Airborne and a few cruise missiles? Let’s pull the trigger and give Ecuador an attitude adjustment.

  • 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: 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.
