How does our government hurt us? How about $18T in debt?

To The Daily Sun

Oh dear, Bernadette Loesch wrote another uninformed letter heavy on spin and short on reason. This time she asks, what has government done to harm people?

Where do I start? How about that it just became official that the national debt has just topped $18 trillions. That debt must be either passed on to our children or government programs and services must be shut down. That will hurt people. The government has printed billions in paper money with nothing backing it, thus reducing the value of the dollar, raising prices. That hurts people. The cooperate income tax is 35 percent — the highest in the world. Corporations do not pay that tax, they pass it along to consumers. That's you and I, we pay that tax. That hurts people.

Remember the ACA (Obamacare) was supposed to save everyone money? It doesn't. It won't, and that hurts people.

Then there is all the foolhardy, wasteful and corrupt programs our taxes have been spent on. That hurts people by raising our taxes.

Do I really have to go on and on with examples going back several decades because I think everyone knows of at least a few examples where government has harmed citizens.

Perhaps Bernadette should put a little more thought into her letters and a lot less political spin?

Cops not cruising black neighborhoods looking for men to shoot

To The Daily Sun,

Hands up, don't shoot! Demonstrations in cities all over America are echoing to the chants. Another case of the far-left telling the "big lie." Brown never put his hands up, never said "don't shoot" that was the story of Brown's accomplice in the strong arm robbery of a convenience store just shortly before. It was backed up by a few in the community with axes to grind. In the end forensic evidence and counter testimony proved the lie of it. But never let facts stand in the way of a good riot, the left just loves to loot and burn then tell everyone how dangerous the Tea Party is.

Do readers understand what Brown's greatest crime was? It was gross stupidity. I don't care how big and tough you think you are you don't try to attack someone, anyone with a gun, and especially a cop. And make no mistake Brown was big and tough. 6 foot 4 and 292 pounds. (That's NFL football player size folks.) But Brown was no football player, Brown was a thug, bully and thief, so when the left tries to make him a victim of police injustice, I laugh.

And then we have Al Sharpton swooping in like the vulture he is, all ready to feed on the gullibility of fools. We see the poison fruits of his racist activism and not for the first time. Remember the Crown Heights riots some years back, when at least one young Jewish man was murdered by Sharpton's mob. This vulture has made himself rich at his own people's expense and the blood of real innocent victims.

Anyone who actually cares to look at the facts surrounding the left's narrative can see for themselves it's all BS. Cops are not cruising black neighborhoods looking for young black men to shoot. Young black men are doing that themselves. Ninety-one percent of black murders are black on black. So what do those on the left have to say about that? What's their plan? What? What? Can't hear them, can you?

We have an illicit president who has zero accomplishments

To The Daily Sun,

On April 30, 1973, the White House announced the resignation of Haldeman and Ehlichman and Attorney General Richard G. Kleindienst. During a national broadcast that night, President Nixon denied any involvement in the Watergate break-in or cover-up. Nixon said " justice will be pursued, fairly, fully and impartially, no matter who is involved." This must be a script. We are still hearing similar rhetoric.

Chief counsel of the permanent staff of the House Judiciary Committee was Jerry Zeifman with the staff of the impeachment inquiry. They consisted of Richard Cates, John Doar, Samuel Garrison, Albert Jenner, Bernard Nussbaum and Hillary Rodham.

Nixon considered the media an enemy since he played a significant role, in the 1950s, during the Alger Hiss spy case. Always somewhat shy and private, he took his vacations in almost seclusion fashion at Camp David, San Clemente, or Key Biscayne. Fla.

The Watergate storm intensified as president Nixon almost disappeared from public view. The Judiciary Committee's report and Articles of Impeachment were on its way to the House of Representatives. The articles drawn up could easily be relevant to the crisis facing America today. These are but a few applicable to today's crises.

Article 1: Making or causing to be made false or misleading statements to lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States.

Article 9: Endeavoring to cause prospective defendants, and individuals duly tried and convicted, to expect favored treatment and consideration in return for their silence or false testimony, or rewarding individuals for their silence or false testimony.

In all of this Richard M. Nixon has acted in a manner contrary to his trust as president and subversive of constitutional government, to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice and to the manifest injury of the people of the united states. Whereas Richard M. Nixon, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office.

Chronology of Watergate: Jan. 20, 1969, Richard Nixon inaugurated President. May 12, New York Times discloses bombing of Cambodia. Wire taps installed on reporters and White House aides. April 22, 1970,House Majority Leader Hale Boggs becomes furious over the FBI and other agencies wiretaps and surveillance of members of Congress. July 23, President Nixon approves illegal Huston plan for political intelligence gathering. June 13, 1971, "Pentagon Papers" published by Daniel Ellsberg in New York Times. Sept. 3, E. Howard Hunt and Gordon Liddy and others burglarize the office of Ellsberg's psychiatrist. June 17, 1972, Hunt, Liddy and others burglarize Watergate office of Democratic National Committee. June 23 Following a discussion of Watergate arrests, Nixon directs Halderman to urge CIA Director Jesse Helms to impede Watergate-related investigations. Oct. 22, Hale Boggs disappears in a small plane over Alaska. Nov. 7, Nixon re-elected in a landslide. Jan. 8, 1973, trial of Watergate burglars. Found guilty by Jan. 30. Jan. 20, 93rd Congress convenes. Charles Morgon begins " Impeach Nixon" movement. Feb.y 6 Sen. Sam Ervin chairs a Committee to investigate Watergate. July 13, Attorney General Elliott Richardson appoints Archibald Cox as Watergate special prosecutor. White House tapes discovered by Ervin committee. June 25-29, John Dean accuses Nixon of participation in Watergate coverup. July 23 Ervin committee discovers White House tapes. Oct. 10, under indictment, Vice President Agnew resigns. Oct. 13, House Judiciary Committee begins hearings to confirm Gerald Ford as vice president. A young graduate by the name of Hillary Rodham was fired due to her unethical approach to the investigation. Richard Nixon resigned from the presidency on Aug. 9, 1974.

Isn't it time to remove the current resident in the White House? We have an illicit president with zero accomplishments and no known history. A tyrant always surrounds himself with like-minded rascals who know in order to protect themselves they must  protect him. When they see their world closing in on them they may abandon ship or claim the Fifth. A typical communist tactic.

The main grievance directed toward the Republican Party might well be their lack of backbone. And, of course, their lack of organizational skills, and their inability to identify the enemy to our way of life. Reaching across the aisle is not always a good thing. Lenin coined the phrase "two steps forward, one step back." It doesn't take a genius to understand its meaning.

I can't repeat her exact words but bet she loves the Baby Jesus

To The Daily Sun,

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Fabulous Festivus and a Super Satanic Solstice to all of you! And to all of you who watch every Die-Hard on Christmas Day.

Welcome to another edition of Tea Party Potty Tricks. Well, we have some catching up to do, don't we? We here at the Center for the Study of Absurdity are proud to announce the winners of the 2014 Nobel Prize in Lakes Region Tomfoolery. It goes to The Sun's very own Conservative Clown Car, with Don Ewing, Steve Earle, Bob Mead, Russ Wiles, and John Demakowski. This prize is awarded to those who present hyperbole, distortion, fanaticism, paranoia, tall tales and the zaniest fandango possible at the highest levels. Benghazi! Jesus! Benghazi! Jesus!

But let's get down to those wonderful people who love the Baby Jesus and of course, the infinite love they have for everyone else. Stephen Anderson, pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Ariz., is on a roll. He recently declared that we could have an AIDS-free New Years if only we just kill all the gays. "It was right there in the Bible all along" he said.

But Pastor Stan Solomon doesn't like second fiddle, so in an interview with Phyllis Schlafly he stated, "Michael Brown was shot because he's a thug. I'm glad he's dead. He deserves to be dead. He was a thug." He also warned, "Liberal government is going to take our children and give them to the homosexuals."

In law and disorder, Former police chief Donald Solomon was sentenced to 11 years in prison for corruption a while back. But Solomon has found God so he insists he should be let out. Isn't that special! In an FBI sting in which he thought the agents were drug dealers, he quipped, "I'm the best cop money can buy."

Empty headed GOP staffer Elizabeth Lauten is out of a job. It seems everyone but the Tea Party Cuckoo's Nest was aghast at her attack on the First Daughters. When the nation slapped her, she prayed and prayed for guidance. Nobody was at the office so she got fired. Another classy conservative lady of distinguished merit. In more matters of justice, a Tennessee police officer was recently caught on tape choking a white college student unconscious and was fired immediately. However, NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo who choked Eric Garner to death and is currently on paid leave. The coroner ruled it a homicide, but he is on paid vacation. Justice, white guy-style! Hey, Darren Wilson made a million dollars killing Michael Brown. Not kidding.

In serial government lunacy, the latest from the Hill is that the House Tea-Billies and Slingbladers want the State of the Union speech canceled. It must be that love thy neighbor and forgiveness stuff the Baby Jesus taught. As you know, the Deep South is in the Middle Ages when it comes to equality and justice. They never disappoint with their level of intellectual ferocity. The Kennesaw City Council voted 4-1 to deny the Suffa Dawat congregation a permit for a storefront worship space, but the Pentecostal Redeemed Christian Fellowship Church got approved their storefront space under the same traffic circumstances. Well, that's the Christian Sharia for you. And what about that foreign language stuff from the Pentecostals? Speak English! This is Murica! Kennesaw is Freedom, equality and the Baby Jesus' love just shining forth from a city on a dunghill.

In Texas they don't even have good teachers to complement their medieval quality textbooks. There, we can find Obama Derangement Syndrome as a mental illness owned with pride. Angela Box, a third-grade teacher in west Houston has stirred up the nest when the cesspool inside her skull leaked, joking, "Can't Ebola just take one for the team and take out Obama?"

Furthermore, witnessing the Baby Jesus' love, she quipped "Every normal human being in the world knows that "...having sex with goats and boys is a bacon-hating Muslim thing. I can't repeat her exact words. You can be sure she loves the Baby Jesus, who obviously didn't listen to her prayers either because she was fired immediately.

From the ammosexual world, Fresno Firearms was robbed by masked gunman minutes after it opened. See? It's those damn gun-free zones.

Star Pitcher Curt Shilling is a world class athlete but he, like John Demakowski, couldn't pass a sixth-grade science test. Recently he tweeted, "if humans evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?" Creationists think that is an intelligent question which brings into question the claimant's intelligence. Speaking of sixth-graders, watch this sixth grader train wreck a creationist at http://deadstate.org/watch-the-incredible-moment-when-a-creationist-got-outwitted-by-a-sixth-grader/

Poor pitiful Glen Beck is upset — again. The Beck man claims that the satanic display at the Florida state capital's holiday display is a sign of the coming destruction. Again! Are you camped out on your roof, yet?

I seems to be the non-religious who protest the longest & loudest

To The Daily Sun,

Mr. Siden finding it ludicrous that I consider the Founding Fathers to be conservatives isn't surprising, that he might have thought about what I'd wrote and found himself agreeable to it would have been quite surprising.

Stanford.edu has an article on liberalism; one may assign to it as they wish. The liberals, or more correctly, libertarians, of 1776 were for limited government, especially of the national government; it is why the U.S. Constitution, and especially the Bill of Rights, is seen as limiting the federal government. I am quite aware of the torturous path over the last 100-plus years taken to re-left history to apply the modern liberal ideology. Mr. Siden says that they were extremely liberal as if to say they were liberal isn't accurate enough, then lumps in progressive to cinch the accuracy of his claim. As if needing additional foundation added 'that it is pretty well settled history'.

Liberals today are not the "liberals" of 1787, who founded a limited republican government; not even Mr. Siden can claim we have a limited government today.

As to Mr. Siden saying, ". . . why must we disenfranchise other faiths by falsely claiming to be a "Christian nation?" It was (and still may be to some extent) that people of other nations come here for the freedom we have. I believe they have well enjoyed just that. It has seemed to be the non-religious who have protested the loudest and longest, stripping religious reference from everything (the money must burn in their hands). Those of Christian faith seeking to retain and preserve their rights are also aiding those of other religions, religions even more stringent and those such as the ACLU will one day be arguing against, that is if they remain honest to their agenda.

James Madison also wrote (http://press-pubs.uchicago.edu/founders/documents/v1ch16s23.html) "...Conscience is the most sacred of all property; other property depending in part on positive law, the exercise of that, being a natural and unalienable right." Perhaps the liberals of the 21st century might promote the citizen's right of conscience (Article 4 – NH Constitution) rather than coddle to those who live for the moment's whim and hold others responsible and deny their right of conscience. Should I live to see the day — doubt it!
