Who needs the Comedy Channel when we’ve got Washington?

America is the best country on the earth to live in. But if we as decent people allow Obama and his people to make and enforce laws that are made to destroy life as we are used to, we are doomed.

New York City won’t let a person smoke unless they are 21, but at age 18 they can get killed or blown to pieces, then come home and are forced to buy health insurance that will not cover anything.

Nikita Khrushchev said many years ago the Communist Party would rule America and never fire a shot. This has come true. The U.S. government has taken prayer and discipline out of schools and parental control from homes.

If America’s people don’t stand up for their rights before 2016, Obama will have total control over America. Obama has lied to the American people from the first. The Democratic Party is just as dirty and low down as Obama and the Republican party is no better.

The American people need to get some backbone and heart about ourselves, go to the White House and Capitol Hill and get Obama and our politicians by the shirt collar and get some law and order back in this country. This also goes for state and local government.

We can’t stand more taxes, higher fuel prices and more governmental control. America has elected a dictator, and if we don’t wake up and take our rights back, we should pull Russia’s flag up the pole now.

Foreign countries don’t need to watch the Comedy Channel. All they need to do is tune in Washington and look at what they are doing to America.

  • Where to look Where to look

    Drive anywhere in Maryland and it seems there is one highway construction project after another. While it is good to see our roads and bridges being upgraded, it can be nerve-wracking for anyone traveling a long distance.

  • Library week

    Public libraries remain one of the best uses of taxpayer dollars. They are open to all. Young or old, poor or wealthy, residents can use computers and read current magazines and newspapers. Compact discs featuring a wide variety of music and
    movies on DVD may be checked out in addition to novels and other books.

  • One cannot compromise on God’s word

    A recent letter asked, “What is it about compromises that seem so undesirable?” Most of us are familiar with John 3:16, which says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” The next verse goes on to say, “For God did not send his son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him”

  • Ballpark project a partnership, not a government handout

    To the Editor:
    Regarding Mark Nelson’s recent objection to county government assistance to exploring the placement of a minor league baseball team in the Cumberland region, I would answer that the project should be considered a partnership between private enterprise and government. The private support would come by way of donations collected from local citizens, currently banked through the Dapper Dan Club.

  • Speed cameras Speed cameras

    We’ve never been big fans of speed cameras, primarily for two reasons. First, because the cameras are not always accurate, and secondly because many jurisdictions seem to create revenue by installing cameras and issuing high numbers of speeding tickets.
