Letter: Stand and fight, don't run away

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.

  • 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.

  • Viewpoint: Law trumps compassion on immigration problem As I was watching a debate on the immigration problem, the "build a fence" participant appeared to lose considerable moral ground when his liberal counterpart said, "There is a high moral ground … I would like to have an open border situation. It would be good for this country …. " She summarized by saying we ought to be a "compassionate nation."

  • Viewpoint: Damming river will affect entire state One proponent of the White River reservoir construction says that if you are opposed to damming the White river then you are one of the few and are loud and irresponsible. His support of the reservoir offers no facts or referenced success stories, only rosy predictions of what he wants you to believe that it could be.
