Late-term abortions

Editor:

To all members of Congress and the Senate who support late-term abortions, I propose you sit and watch a video of Infanticide and thank God you were not included.

It’s all about values

Editor:

I agree wholeheartedly with Chris Graziani‘s letter of February 12 on your editorial page. I especially agree with her point about dumbing down our educational system. We have a system now that produces college graduates who advocate socialism. They have no idea of the ramifications of this form of government. They only think they are getting “free stuff.”

These radical-thinking teachers are destroying our history and replacing it with their hatred of our country.  They are equating the past with the present. Because of their teachings, our sons and daughters are tearing down statues of our heroes of the past, spewing hateful rhetoric of our forefathers and promoting socialism.  I agree that we certainly had a period in time that was shameful, but we have evolved and are evolving to overcome and repair our past transgressions. The good we have done have far outnumbered the bad. Let’s teach in school the great progress we have made in all areas of our lives, plus the aid and comfort we have contributed to countries in need around the world.

I fear for the United States of America if these indoctrinated college graduates are to be our future leaders, we will no longer live in a free country.  

Lastly, I am old enough to remember when my generation pledged allegiance to the flag, sang “America the Beautiful” and said the “Lord’s Prayer” every morning as our opening exercise before classes began. I assume that would be against the law today. Back then, the majority ruled, not the far-left minority.
