They keep trying to fool us, but some people know the truth

After reading the newspaper and watching the news this past week, I felt the need to express myself about a couple subjects that I had seen.

First of all, I find it interesting that President Obama can assure health care for everyone by taking more money from those who have worked for it and re-distributing it to those who haven’t.

He cannot, however, assure our safety by keeping Muslim terrorists out of our country, even though our government was warned about these particular terrorists by Russia — a country that at one time was bent on our destruction.

I’m not exactly sure where our dear President stands on every issue, but I am certain of two things. He is a socialist and a Muslim sympathizer. Let him prove me wrong on either count.

Secondly, I find it interesting that Gov. Martin O’Malley seems intent on taking guns from the hands of law abiding citizens in Maryland and raising taxes to the point where the middle class must now scrape to survive.

He cannot, however, prevent an incarcerated Baltimore gang leader from fathering children with the very women who are in charge of guarding this man (“Jail contraband plot brings 25 indictments,” April 24 Times-News, Page 1B). One of the female correctional officers was impregnated by said gang leader not once, but twice.

Mr. Governor, there is an old saying that goes something like this: “Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.” I believe we all know who should be ashamed in this situation.

  • Remember, we’re not immune to extinction

    I’d like to pose a theoretical scenario to Cal Thomas.
