THE MONTANA man got 30 days for raping a 14 year old, who later committed suicide. Scott Dean got 20 years for allegedly touching his stepdaughter, who later recanted her story. Let Scott come home.

 

I ALWAYS FIND it amusing the way Lowell Greenbaum takes jabs at the Republicans and the Tea Party. This time Greenbaum criticized Sen. Ted Cruz and referred to him as the “new McCarthy.” Greenbaum also warned us that Cruz uses scare tactics to bully and we should be aware of his policies. How hypocritical for Greenbaum to make such accusations against Cruz when Greenbaum’s hero Obama is a prime example of an arrogant, greedy and corrupt bully. When it comes to policies, Obama’s are downright frightening plus damaging to America. Once again Lowell Greenbaum sticks his foot in his mouth.

 

TRACY E. WILLIAMS certainly lauded a lot of praise on the Affordable Care Act/ObamaCare and made sure that he put the emphasis on all the so-called beneficial pros. Seems Mr. Williams omitted some very negative cons. A few examples: $1.1 trillion cost of ObamaCare. All the new taxes, rules, regulations, mandates, penalties. Damage to businesses. Many doctors closing their practices, no longer taking new patients or accepting Medicare. Premiums and deductibles higher. In addition the ACA/ObamaCare consists of thousands of pages that are very complex and difficult to comprehend. Personally I’d be leary of the “fine print” and “what’s between the lines.” Since Lowell Greenbaum is a Ph.D., maybe he could explain in detail the thousands of pages this health care bill contains.

 

AFTER READING the article about the possible new regulations for tattoos for Army personnel, I am appalled that Sgt. Robertson would make such an immature statement. He is a member of the United States Armed Forces and a NCO, which means he is supposed to a leader. I am a retired NCO who served in Vietnam during the draft era, my first sergeant in Vietnam would have taken him in his office and had a “wall to wall” counseling session with the young Sergeant. If he doesn’t like the regulations, he should get out, and become a civilian. We always knew we were under Uniformed Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) and as a result we were to follow orders. I took pride in being an Army NCO and not a civilian.
