I would like to respond to your article on the city council meeting in last week’s paper, specifically the last paragraph. I quote, “He voted no on the issue of the city offering coverage by Air Evac for all city employees, firefighters and council members. The other members were for the service.”

The founding fathers of America divised the finest document the world has ever known, the Constitution of the United States of America. It provides more freedom and liberty for the individual states and our people than any official document ever written!
The tenth amendment of our Constitution has an important legal provision that was almost forgotten as the years passed by. This provision grants the power of nullification of unconstitutional laws and executive orders drafted by the federal government or the president. Some states have recently exercised this right, especially concerning Obama Care and second amendment violations.
Our founding fathers were highly intelligent, well-educated men who had studied ancient civilizations where the people were oppressed and looked upon as servants and slaves.
For example, the Roman Republic was greatly admired for many years until they gradually allowed themselves to regress from a republic into an empire of democracy, which is the next step toward socialism and communism.
The American founders didn’t want this to happen to our citizens. This is why they crafted the tenth amendment, which ensures states rights. There is no time in American history that “Nullification” could be more important than the present.
“Whensoever the general government assumes undelagated powers... a nullification of the act is the rightful remedy.”
- Thomas Jefferson
God bless the Republic of the United States of America.

RE: Sequestration threatens vulnerable children
Head Start and Early Head Start programs are facing devastating budget cuts that will eliminate vital services for nearly 70,000 at-risk children. By failing to avert the budget sequester, our elected officials have missed the opportunity to lead by example and place the most vulnerable among us on a pathway to lifelong success.
As the Child Development Director of the KCEOC’s Head Start/Early Head Start Program, I can tell you that these cuts will be particularly catastrophic to the children and families we serve. For nearly fifty years Head Start has been getting results in preparing our neediest children for school, and leading the early childhood field in innovation and quality through both high standards and relentless insistence on excellence. Here in Kentucky, sequester means 1,100 fewer children can be served by Head Start and Early Head Start.
Head Start and other non-defense discretionary programs – at 3.4% of the budget – are not the cause of our growing dept. Congress and the Administration need to act quickly to restore fiscal stability and maintain funding for Kentucky’s at-risk children. Our nation’s budget simply cannot be balanced at the expense of America’s most vulnerable children and their families.
Child Development Director.

We’re not gonna take it
God’s children too long have been silent,
But we will not remain any longer.
We have awakened from our sleep,
When you put down my precious Lord
You’re walking on the fighting side of me.
Obama may believe Homosexuals have a right to every privilege of Christians. You sir, are wrong. You think you are in control of the world, God is still on his throne. He did not die and vacate the premises.
If this is your lifestyle, I ask you to change in the name of Jesus, Satan has to flee. If you are a sinner, God does not hear your prayer. People say they don’t believe that because they prayed and got theirs answered. What you don’t understand, there was a saint of God praying too.
The prayers of a righteous man availeth much. God is love, we must worship in deed, not in words. The Bible is a two edged sword. We should not use it to slice each other up. If the church would get on fire for God, sinners would come to watch it burn.
We invite you to Whitehall Baptist Church – Pastor Earnest Smith. God’s word will be preached. If only hypocrites go there, we always have room for one more.
Jesus and Judy Smallwood Smith

The evolution of politicians to public liars is the only real threat to America. Al-Qaeda and the other manufactured threats that keep our tax dollars flowing to the “military industrial complex” are strictly kindergarten compared to our politicians. Nowadays, they even dramatize their lies with props.
President Obama recently decorated his background with poor souls who would, according to him, be devastated by sequestration, which he knew would not cut one dime out of any federal budget. The ‘cuts’ that spawned his lies would simply require federal agencies to make do with the same budgets they had the previous year. Where were the 700,000 layoffs, long boarding lines at airports, kids kicked out of preschool, and burned-down houses in 2012?
Our founding fathers viewed the press as essential to our democratic republic. They expected reporters to keep the citizenry factually informed. Like our politicians, the press has also evolved to something less than their envisioned role in our democracy.
For example, after Obama and his supporters failed to convince the citizenry that sequestration would produce floods, famine, and a defenseless America, they changed their tact and launched the so-called “charm offensive.” The press reported that they had “changed their tune.” Instead of reporting they had stopped lying, they had “changed their tune.” Calling a spade a spade used to have merit. Has that also evolved to something less?
Both political parties are equally and obviously guilty of the most harmful public lie of all, gridlock, and it is a sworn lie to boot. Politicians raise their right hands to swear to serve America “well and good.” They do neither. Their allegiance is to themselves and their cash cows. Their 12% job approval rating confirms their allegiance.
When it comes to lying, there is no significant difference between Republicans and Democrats, especially among the long-sitting incumbents. They constantly lie about their ideological differences. Yet, their few legislative outcomes yield the same results. They get wealthier and middle class citizens get poorer and fewer.
Our lying politicians are indeed the only real threat to America. Abraham Lincoln once said: “No foreign troops would ever walk along the Mississippi or stomp the Blue Ridge. An enemy within will be our undoing.” By doggies, he was right. The “enemy within” is deeply entrenched and well fortified on Capitol Hill.
An informed, responsible electorate is the only power on Earth that can eliminate the corruption and cash-cow influence in Washing. Current voters have two choices. They can fumigate Congress and the White House or they can continue the status quo and wind up a brief footnote in history, which will simply state they were the voters who stood by and let their corrupt politicians kill America right out in broad daylight and didn’t lift a finger to help her.
