Bush is a hero and other letters to the editors

Bush is a hero

Regarding a letter of June 1: As far as I’m concerned, (George W.) Bush will always be a hero. I feel no guilt. I’m in my 80s. I remember Pearl Harbor, etc. We better watch out; it might happen again.

KATHLEEN DOHERTY, Hixson


High-paying jobs are elsewhere

Mike Pare’s article titled “Made in America, Does it Matter?” totally missed the point. The really high-paying jobs are the engineers and designers in the country that owns the company, not the manual labor. The real profits go back to Germany, Japan or Korea.

Chattanooga is little more than a German colony — an assembly point. The top-paying jobs are in Germany, (held by) Germans and (are) never going to be otherwise. The most ridiculous thing is the state paid $288,500 for each position and the privilege to be a colony. You sold America out and paid money to do it. Gov. Bill Haslam is trying to do it again with another $300 million.

Obama should be impeached

Until this latest Bergdahl debacle, President Obama was in a position to, if not help, at least not do any more harm involving fellow Democrats in this year’s congressional elections. But once a narcissist, always a narcissist: Now he has completely discarded any pretext of adherence to congressional laws and our Constitution by brashly releasing five of the world’s most vicious terrorists in exchange for a traitor who wants to join those terrorists!

Every day we are given another reason to begin impeachment proceedings. President Nixon was driven from office because he took some bad advice.

Clinton was impeached for lying to a federal grand jury. But in both instances, no one died.

Obama failed to protect our Benghazi consulate, and four people died, including our ambassador.

Now we learn that many Americans abroad are in mortal danger of being kidnapped and bartered for, like cattle at an auction. This is in strict violation of all United States laws and not approved by Congress. Obama’s removal from office, and dozens of others, should be imminent.

JOHN BERGEN, Ringgold, Ga.

John Bergen bleats:Obama failed to protect our Benghazi consulate, and four people died, including our ambassador.

Bush failed to protect our own country, you remember the twin towers in NY where we lost over 3,000 of our citizens then proceeded to an illegal, unfunded war on a country that had nothing to do with 9/11. We lost over 4,000 troops and thousands of innocent civilians. Not to mention the TRILLIONS $$$$ of taxpayer money. Bush/Cheney should have been hung at "ground zero", not impeached.

John Bergen bleats:"Obama failed to protect our Benghazi consulate, and four people died, including our ambassador."

That statement is patently false. The investigations into the Benghazi incident revealed that President Obama gave the military a free hand to do whatever they thought was necessary and that could be done during the Benghazi attack.

Former Sec. of Defense Robert Gates (a Bush appointee) remarked that had he been in the administration at the time he would have done nothing differently.

The Right's continued attempt to use this incident for political gain is shameful and IMO will eventually blow back on them.

"Bush is a hero"

to coffin makers, prosthetic manufacturers, defense contractors, officers who sit on corporate boards after retiring, funeral homes, Halliburton, ammo makers, and the list goes on.

The word "hero" means nothing anymore.

ayb,

You forgot headstone makers, those people that make those yellow ribbons, the people that make American flags for military funerals, Dick Cheney's robot heart, Michael Brown, the Saudi Group, etc.

"Bush is a hero?"

WE PREACH CHRIST JESUS CRUCIFIED

Only those who 'study to show themselves approved of God, workmen who need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth' know the 'WHY' of the following fact:

Actually President Obomah is doing a very good job regarding what he is mandated to do.

Leaders are placed in their positions by The Lord God of Hosts. Certain Leaders are in place as instruments of YHWH to deliver punishment to the people over whom they preside. The United States of America is now under harsh discipline/chastisement, especially for ABORTION and HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOR and SEXUAL IMMORALITY in general. There are, of course, many other reasons, although, these, in my belief are the main SINS of cause. At least, this is my understanding of what The Holy Bible has declared regarding these SINS.

It will, like the plagues of ancient Egypt in Moses' time, get worse and worse unless we, as individuals, and, as a nation REPENT and turn back to Jesus Christ of Nazareth!

So, I say, do not be so harsh on President Obamah, my President, because he is doing a good job regarding his purpose, mandated by YHWH, of being in leadership over this United States.

Another post from the Fundy-NutZ. According to him, everything is God's fault.

Abortion - God's will.

Homosexuality - God's will

Sexual Immorality - God's Will

Evolution - God's will though he denies it on Sunday.

Dog crapped on lawn - God's Will

ABC News Analyst - George Will

Jerry Falwell's Heart Attack from obesity -God's will

Orr's pathological lying and ignorance - God's Will

What's funnier than a Fundy-NutZ? God's Willy (or is God like a Ken doll. But then how did God knock-up Mary?)

Join us next time for another episode of "Leave It to Fundy-NutZ" brought to you by the makers of Christ-on-a-Cracker Breath Mints for a kissing fresh breath even Judas couldn't deny. Available at faith-healings, snake-handlings, tongue snappings, and liquor stores. Now in special NyQuil taste for Baptists.

WE PREACH CHRIST JESUS CRUCIFIED AND HE DID THE HOLY MACARENA WITH PETER AT THE LAST SUPPER BEFORE BEING ARRESTED BY THE MORALS POLICE. PETER DENIED DANCING WITH JESUS BUT LATER ADMITTED JC COULD BUST-A-MOVE AFTER A GRAIL OR TWO OF MOGEN DAVID!

Still no evidence of Jesus, Jehovah, and the Bible as real?

Re: The Above Poem:

'Fair Use' is not recognized by me {kwo} if someone wants to use my work. On the other hand, 'Fair Use, is, indeed recognized by me if i choose to use their work {kwo}; In that case "Any use that 'seems fair' is fair use".wikipedia.org 'The distinction between what is fair use and what is infringement in a particular case will not always be clear or easily defined.' title 17, U. S. Code, section 107 (U.S. Copyright Office).

Just kidding...regarding the 'copyright' stuff. +(:>

I can not imagine anything more painful than spending an eternity with you and your fellow Fundy-NutZ.

There is no heaven up there; there is no hell down there. There is no Jehovah, no savior, no factual, literal Bible. The dead do not return nor reap rewards for slavishly believing in eternal life.

Death returns us to the same place we were before we were born.

This life is it. Heaven or hell, figuratively speaking, is what we make of it.

Ken Orr, if indeed there is a heaven, then you and your brothers and sisters in Jesus can have it all to yourselves. Please do not waste your silly prayers on the likes of me and other atheists and non-believers. Even if your imaginary hell really did await us, as you arrogant self-righteous knuckle draggers claim, we would much rather spend eternity there, free of you and your fundamentalist crap. Lordy, we have had to endure too much of your regressive thinking and attitude already. I couldn't imagine having to put up with you and con-man and your ilk for an eternity. Now THAT would be hell indeed!
