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: Pray for an end to abortion pandemic There are few, if any, conditions of our day that have more impact on our lives than the shameful practice of abortion – a legalized form of murder. There are many who say that should not be spoken in polite society. There are others who buy into the fabrication that since abortion is legal, it must be a non-issue.

  • Viewpoint: Politicians creating instability in public schools

    I will begin this correspondence by stating I have known hundreds of educators from across the state of Indiana. There are a couple of fibers that commonly run through the character of most of these great people, educators truly care about kids, and they do not fear a fair and equitable evaluation.

  • Viewpoint: Resources are available to prevent child abuse The word "courage" is often associated with the fight against child abuse. Front line victim advocates have long recognized the need for courage in order to protect victims. Behind the scene advocates need courage to fight for funding and attention to the cause.

  • Viewpoint: Tree City USA distinction laughable I thoroughly enjoyed your April Fools' editorial announcing that the city of Anderson had received the Tree City USA distinction. Had I not realized it was a joke, I would have choked on my coffee. I was a little concerned that you did not announce to some of the less enlightened readers that it was an April Fools' joke.
