Problem or not, government will waste money ‘fixing’ it

Did I read that correctly, that they want to spend nearly $700,000 to make the death chamber compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act? Is it any wonder we have over $16 trillion in debt?

But then the Feds spend $3 million for research on video games; $2.6 million to train Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly; a whopping $500 million on a program that would, among other things, try to figure out why five-year-olds “can’t sit still” in a kindergarten classroom; and grants such as $1.8 million on a “museum of neon signs” in Las Vegas. And why does the federal government own 80 percent of land in Nevada and Alaska? I know that the $700,000 is state money, but it is driven by federal law.

Liberals Democrats’ beliefs fly in face of Bible’s teachings

I read with interest and laughter the letter from Robin Christy stating that “Liberals do God’s will.” I must have a different Bible.

The one I read states that abortion (killing a baby) is wrong (Exodus 20 and Psalm 139); gay rights are against God’s word (Leviticus 18:18 and Romans 1); capital punishment was put into effect by God (Genesis 9); that we are to read the Bible daily (Psalm 1:2); and marriage is between one man and one woman (Genesis 2:24).

The Liberal Democrats have thrown the Bible out of our society. This started with Lyndon Johnson in 1955 with his amendment to forbid pastors talking about politics from the pulpit because he didn’t want anyone speaking against him and his fellow Democrats. This has continued with Christmas and Easter being forbidden in the “Liberal” states. Call the American Civil Liberties Union, i.e. Liberal Democrats, if even a scent of a nativity scene shows up in the town square.

Robin, you also need to study American history. The Southern Democrats went to war to keep slavery. The Democrats of the South also started that organization called the Ku Klux Klan. You want to discuss the motives of Margaret Sanger who founded Planned Parenthood?

Sorry, Liberal Democrats are dead set against God and the Bible. When the final trumpet sounds, you are either with God or His enemy. There’s no middle of the road (Romans 5). Democrats are on the wrong side of that fence.
