To the Editor:

I want to thank President Obama for his many achievements — and especially his compassion for all.

Thank you for Obamacare — it has been a blessing for me. I want the Republicans to stop their assault on my health.

Thank you for being concerned about women’s rights. Our country was founded on freedom of religion — and separation of church and state.

No one has the right to tell me what to do with my body. Kind of like saying all men must get a vasectomy.

Thank you for protecting gay rights — prejudice in any form is despicable.

Thank you for wanting stricter gun laws. Seeing a person walking down the street with an AR-15 is unbelievable as well as extremely frightening. I feel like I am living in the Old West.

Thank you for caring about our environment.

Some people still don’t believe in climate change. NASA scientists did (many years ago). And yet the Bush administration squelched that knowledge.

Thank you for bringing our troops home.

And much, much more.

President Obama has done much for our country — even with the Republicans against him at every step.

And please fact check what you hear on Fox News, and from the Koch brothers’ PACs. Lots of incorrect information is out there.

We need to work together. United we stand — divided we fall.

    "Condoleezza Rice: But I don’t remember the al‐Qaida cells as being something that we were told we needed to do something about.
    Richard Ben-Veniste: Isn't it a fact, Dr. Rice, that the August 6 PDB [Presidential Daily Briefing] warned against possible attacks in this country? And I ask you whether you recall the title of that PDB?
    Condoleezza Rice: I believe the title was, Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States."

    Bubba, you can thank my father for your freedom to be an ackjass. And I have read-- and heard-- that your savior (G W Bush) knew on 6 August that Bin Laden was planning an attack on the U S. Guess where I heard that? From none other than Condi Rice-- she was being questioned by a committee and finally got that out of her mouth. Like a good politician, she hemmed and hawed but finally answered it. It killed her to have to admit that her boss (G W Bush) knew about it and didn't do a flipping thing. I guess there were not any 4,000 dead service personnel and thousands of disabled service personnel as a result of the war in Iraq. You are just a flunky of Bush's in a green suit.

    rest your own case, dirtbag. You are the namecaller here, and frankly, you're embarrassing yourself. I have disproven all of your nonsense, and all you can comeback with is this weak, pathetic drivel. I seriously doubt that you are a combat veteran or have ever been responsible for lives-you're just not smart enough. Being a Life Member of the NRA has made me knowledgeable-far more so than you. You would do well to post less and read more, and get an education-I am providing it to you for free. And you are stalking me, mostly because you need professional help for your overblown ego and great sense of self-entitlement that liberalism feeds. Seek medical attention today. And get a hobby that doesn't include posting to me, jerk.

    Stop it. You're an anti-American liberal terrorist lover. You're breathing today because Americans greater, smarter, and braver than your sorry excuse for a human being did what was necessary to protect our freedom. This was necessary because liberal clowns like you failed to protect us from 1992-2001, and set the conditions for the 9-11 attacks. More recently, the worst president ever oversaw the murder of our ambassador in Libya, a murder perpetrated because of the incompetence of obama and his staff, who are FAILURES; failures of intellect, judgment, and leadership, and Americans are dead because of it. It seems to me that YOU'RE the one with a memory problem, not to mention your obvious mental defects. Seek help today.

    Hello, Mamma Griz, I feel the need to quote Reagan, "There you go, again!" Not meant in a mean way, but it makes my point when I said while we argue over the individual things we are getting sheared by our government.

    I get it! I get it because I hear it daily by the mainstream news media outlets… Everything that happened on Bush's watch was his fault. Everything from the self destruction of the space shuttle to the housing crisis that was the result of legislation passed when Clinton was in office. What I don't get is why Obama is not being held accountable for any of the failures during his reign.

    With the country growing deeper in debt by the day and government growing bigger by the hour (which requires more money) it's not just the Post Office that is failing. It's the whole country.

    History shows us when the UN peacekeepers come they don’t leave!

    "At the behest of the Republican-controlled Congress of the Bush-Cheney era, the USPS has been forced since 2006 to pre-fund future retiree health benefits. As the American Postal Workers Union notes, “This mandate is the primary cause of the agency’s financial crisis. No other government agency or private company bears this burden, which costs the USPS approximately $5.5 billion annually.”

    And people say the post office is failing? Now we know why.

    It's okay. Harp! But, not addressing bills, dodging legislation and overstepping boundaries is commonplace in Washington whether Republican or Democrat.

    It seems as people are waking up to the mess we are in and dare to speak out about it, the response is "Well, so-and-so did such-and-such!" sounding like children on a playground. And while we argue over the individual things the big picture is we are getting sheared like sheep!

    This president has created the biggest division I have ever seen in politics and otherwise! Think about it. If you had a boss who blamed everything wrong on the working staff then publicly announced to the firm at a company convention "Those darn people down in Department C just aren't cooperating. They don't see the big picture and they are holding us back. If we fail, it will be all their fault!" I really don't think that will boost department C's moral or improve cooperation.

    I worked as a supervisor of over 250 personnel. When I interviewed for the job, I told them I had the experience and the knowledge to make the changes they were expecting. The department was in complete disarray. (The worst I had seen in 25 years) I was successful in following through with my promises and turned the department around. It didn't happen overnight but my boss saw small positive changes immediately and they continued throughout my duration with the company.

    The buck stopped with me! I can't imagine spending my first four years making excuses, blaming workers or so-and-so before me. Then responding to my boss about my insufficient job with things like "You are aware, this is the worst mess I have ever seen! So-and-so left everything in horrible shape."? With that, I would have expected to be fired.

    I guess that's the difference between the real world and the world of politics!

    Great debate, Tomintexas! Thank you.

    Roody: Don't want to harp on it, but read up on how the current House Repub majority is non-addressing a transportation bill. When coupled with the Texas house majority of Repubs that is in its third special session dodging transportation legislation, they seem to have forgotton their party's historic objectives that I pointed out. For some reason they have chosen to make it a contest to see how frugal they can be, but it seems they have stepped well over the line.

    Rest my case just look at his posts and how childish they are. He insults people then reports that he’s being abused. So let me get this straight you pay money to the NRA and that makes you knowledgeable? Bronze Star are they still handing them out like candy—I’ve got a few myself; I’m not impressed.

    Oh BTW you’ve never told me anything you’ve just insulted me with other comments. I have every right to post on KDH articles as much as you. I don’t do them near you—you are being stalked in your own mind.

    When the Democrats were pushing obamacare, they kept telling the nation that it would only cost about $900 billion over the next ten years.

    They discovered that the shortfall between all of the new obamacare tax revenue and spending is approximately $17 trillion dollars. This is five times the current federal annual budget and over three times the amount that the obama regime has already borrowed in just three years.

    When the GOP staffers extended the shortfall out over the next 75 years, it totaled up to a whopping $82 trillion.

    Seen and heard hundreds of them like him, but in contrast, I have also had the opportunity to visit with a lot of GIs, including officers, who can and will carry on a civilized and intelligent conversation about matters political. I continue to be impressed by their dedication and willing sacrifice. The real shame is that, like the aftermath of Viet Nam, I fear that a lot of them will be dumped just prior to receiving their retirement for no reason other than economics. They deserve better.

    You have to excuse Bubba he’s one of those LIFER nCOs don’t care about Soldiers just himself. He can quote numbers but doesn’t know Army Regs never been on line in charge of soldiers—one of those office types. Also by his postings doesn’t know anything about assault weapons either. I was so happy as a young Trooper when the United States went to an all-volunteer force and got rid of those professional PFC’s like Bubba that couldn’t get a real job on the outside and had to stay in the military and not get kicked out. Our military successes have proven it.

    Sorry, Tomintexas. I guess I misunderstood you were blaming Republicans when you said "Today after many years of Republican leadership, state and national, mail service is failing, infrastructure is falling apart and the military has been spent into poverty." Thus my comparison to Detroit.
    I should have clarified the rest of my rant was in response to the original letter to the editor where they said "President Obama has done much for our country - even with the Republicans against him at every step." Thus my comment about the bad economy and this administration blaming Republicans for the 5th year running.

    Sorry, Bubba, but I don't get MSNBC - or Fox "News" for that matter. I don't listen to Rush - my neighbor has five donkeys, so if I want to hear a braying "jack-onkey", all I have to do is step out back.

    Yes, the U.S. has a long standing relationship with the Saudis - primarily on an economic basis. It also has a long standing relationship with Iraq and the Afghans, including supporting the latter against Russia. Look where that got us. Maybe Iran was behind 9-11 as you say; the Middle East is a puzzle; but I do recall that the last "big deal" cut with Iran was by Reagan.

    Like your alleged "Real Americans and Real Scientists", I have a difficult time defining liberals and conservatives. These appear to be purely catch phrases that defy description. It has been my observation that everyone is a liberal when the money is flowing to their interests and a conservative when it is going to the other guy. Despite all the diversionary side issues, money is the driver for political positions. The issues are simply "who will pay for government" and "who will benefit from government."

    There are some things that only an entity such as government can address: Big building projects like the interstate system, warfare, national and international economic issues, and on and on. Much of the time I have to look at government actions as adversarial to my interests, and I don' have to like them, but that doesn't mean that I don't understand the reasons for those actions. All of us have been affected positively and negatively by government regardless of the party in power. The intent of framers of the constitution is hard to interpret in the modern world, and it is subject to opinion, which like Dirty Harry said, "...everyone has one."

    I don't recall my making such an accusation re: "Republicans being responsible for dilapidated infrastructure, etc. and Obama's blaming them for his failures" or how my restatement of an historic Republican mantra could be so interpreted, but since Roody2 brought it up...

    First, Detroit has problems that go well beyond any political party's ability to cause or fix - globalization affected the rust belt much greater than more diversified areas. However, in addressing local or regional infrastructure "problems", look toward Austin, where even Perry has now had to call a third special session for transportation issues in Texas - and Republicans dominate there.

    While the Bush II administration's failures are legend and factual, because of their timing and world events, it is probable that the U.S. will never fully recover to its previous state - regardless of which party is in power. Globalization compounded by his two senseless wars and regulatory failures such as those by his administration's SEC, FDIC, and FDA to name a few led to national, and even worldwide, downturns and costs that will haunt us for decades. While economies can be destroyed relatively fast, they recover much more slowly, and even seemingly less important administrative actions/failures of any sort have far reaching implications. For instance, Nixon's vacating the Breton Woods agreement and separating the dollar's basis from gold began a dramatic and continuing inflationary trend. The effect today is obvious: In 1971 gold was 35 dollars an ounce - look at it now. Even less direct, the Nixon FAA's buckling under to the airline industry's fight against secure pilot cabins could be considered contributory to 9-11. The terrorists would have had a lot of trouble breaking into secure cabins with box cutters. And then, an off hand reply by Bush I to an inquiry about Middle East boundaries was interpreted as a "go ahead" to Hussein to invade Kuwait, and the resulting Desert Storm stimulated Bin Laden to punish the U.S. for stepping on "Holy Ground", and I guess he did.

    I don't endorse many of Obama's efforts, but I do understand that his is a difficult situation most of which is not of his creation - and I don't anticipate that he will succeed in many of his efforts. However, I applaud some of those efforts, including, but not limited to the improvements along IH-35, which bidders told me was paid for with "Obama stimulus money". It's way to early to predict the upshot of his healthcare legislation - it will be changed, modified, reshaped, and hopefully improved for decades to come -as was Medicare - but the effort was and is needed.

    Many times I have voted for the earlier Republicans, but as a friend would say, some of these today have "jumped nekkid". They talk the talk about staying out of peoples' lives, but they do just the opposite, and one has only to look at some of their comments - especially about women - to wonder what kind of people put them in office.

    In response to tomintexas's comment about Republicans being responsible for failing infrastructure, mail service, etc. Detroit has been under the rule of Democrates since 1962. How did that work out?
    The current administration has been blaming Bush/Republicans for all their failures for over 5 years, now.
    I hear what a great job Obama is doing creating jobs, improving the economy, etc. If that were true, poverty would not be growing at such an astronomical rate. The numbers show people depending on government assistance programs nearly doubled under Obama. (from 22.5 million to 39 million) During the years Bush years, poverty jumped from 22 million to 22.5 million. (That's less than 3%)
    How can you say the economy is improving when more people are living in poverty? You can't have it both ways!

    What is interesting to note is that the United States has a long standing relationship with Saudi Arabia, including training their national guard. What is also interesting is that osama bin laden had been banished from Saudi Arabia in 1992 for terror activity and threatening the royal family, among other things. So at the time of the terror attacks on 9-11, bin laden had no ties to the Saudi nation. Real Americans base their views on actual facts, not cheap political pseudo-intellectual talking points issued by MSNBC. What is well-established to Real Americans who have actually done research is that Iran is the enemy behind the 9-11 attacks.

    As for Obama, he has a long-standing, personal, friendly relationship with bill ayers and his wife, bernadine dohrn-established murderers and unrepentant terrorists. he also had a long relationship with the known communist frank marshall davis as a child, forming his Marxist views. More recently, Obama has established ties through huma abedin with the Muslim Brotherhood terrorists in Egypt, and is sending them guns and planes. These same guns were used to murder our ambassador in Libya last year. Real Americans know these facts as well.

    Since President Bush (both of them) spent a good deal of their time hunting down and killing terrorists, while obama and his friends have spent a vast amount of their time sending them money, guns, and planes, as well as trying to grant them Constitutional rights, it's pretty clear to Real Americans who the terrorist lover is here.

    Real Americans are those who believe in and follow the Constitution. Not many liberals meet this description.

    The entire belief system being sponsored by pseudo-intellectuals that mankind can have any effect on the planet is absolute hogwash. The planet is self-cleaning and Real Scientists have discovered that the Earth's climate is driven by the Sun, for the most part, and that's that. Real Americans know this, too, having done their research with actual credible sources.

    Whether or not the health care system in our land requires an invasion is not relevant; what is relevant is that it is not government's place to do it, and government does not have the power to direct that I purchase health insurance or anything else for that matter, and the entire program is absolutely Unconstitutional and a power grab by an out-of-control federal government. Real Americans don't justify the illegal actions of their government because of a personal desire to make more money from the system being invaded.

    As for political parties, the democrats have hitched their star to a Marxist, and have embraced the Marxist views. They are imposing Marxist programs, many o them distilled right out the Soviet state circa 1975. Real Americans fought actual wars to prevent this from happening; and now the enemy has been invited in by the weakminded and uninformed. Real Americans continue to work to rid ourselves of these influences and restore Constitutional government. We put our country first, and believe in our exceptionalism, and the ability of the American people to achieve great things if we can get our government out of the way and get them obey the laws they themselves swore to uphold.

    Oftentimes the responses to these articles generate more questions than the articles themselves, and at the least they make one wonder what may be the sources of the responders' statements and/or their bases for support. For instance, I cannot forget that immediately after the events of 9-11, the only plane allowed in U.S. airways was one that was carrying the Saudi family home even though a prime suspect, Osama, was a member of that family, and the terrorists were from their country. Then there is the picture of Bush II holding hands with a high-ranking member of that family although it has been long believed that his country is a sponsor/supporter of terrorist entities. This can make one wonder who the "terrorist lover" might really be.

    Then there is the definition of what constitutes a "Real American". American is a term that has been usurped by many in the U.S. In fact, geographically, anyone who is a citizen of any country on this continent from the southern tip of South America to the northernmost point in Canada and Alaska - and possibly contiguous portions of the North Pole are "Real Americans". Philosophically, one must believe that those who claim such uniquely elevated status are defining themselves as such by their own standards and opinions, making anyone outside that narrow perception "Not Real Americans". I don't see how this can be justified in the U.S that I know.

    While the causes of climate change can be argued, there is little doubt that it is occurring, and impact caused by the desertification of the earth by man's hand is undeniable, especially in Africa and parts of South America. Even if man is not a primary cause for universal warming, it is only logical that limited and finite resources should be used more wisely and efficiently.

    I won't even address the positions taken on religion, abortion, etc. Those are so often "off the wall" that they don't even merit a glance. However, on healthcare, one must wonder if any of the critics have read the legal tome. Yes, what is called Obama care is and will be a mess for a long time, but for those of us who were here at its inception will remember that so was Medicare - a program that most of the citizenry now gives high marks. In the alternative, compared to the relative cost effectiveness of the medicare drug benefit that was rammed through in the Bush administration, Obama care will likely be a model of economy. Based on my long term experience in the health care industry, including insurance, this is a field that is in sore need of regulatory "invasion".

    Then, there are the routine political accusations as to party, positions, etc. To be truthful, today's parties defy definition. It is, however, as if the tendency for once extreme positions has evolved from the Democrats and now resides with many Republicans. I recall when the Democratic Party was linked with so called "bra burners", homosexuals, other minorities and liberals. Yet today, women's and minority rights including homosexuality - and some other levels of liberalization - are now mainstream. But what has happened to the Republican party that I once could respect and often support - when its mantra to government was, "Build my roads, deliver my mail, defend my shores, and stay the h--- out of my business?" Now its extremes - and increasingly more powerful elements - are made up of what were once known as skin heads and neo Nazis, de facto peeping Toms looking up female skirts, and hijackers of religion for political advancement. Today after years of Republican leadership, state and national, mail service is failing, the infrastructure is falling apart
    and the military has been spent into poverty. If one backs away and looks at our political manipulators, it seems as if "the inmates are running the institution."

    I feel in my opinion that Mr. Obama has done more for racially dividing the country with his "race baiters" Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson! I exactly cant see what Mr. Obama has done for this country that is positive, oh yeas I remember one good thing he did. Made "Pre-Existing medical conditions " not an denial for health insurance.

    The writer of this original opinion talked about the "Wild West" [scared] you have to be kidding! Have they been to Chicago home of the toughest gun laws!

    The Constitution provides freedom of religion; not freedom from religion.

    Global warming is not the result of man's activities. Nor should we rearrange our entire economic structure or culture because of phony baloney pseudo-science. Such pseudo-science driven by political agenda, not science.

    obamacare has nothing to do with health care, and everything to do with expansive government power and invading the health insurance industry. It is blatant coercion by the state you railed about in your previous paragraph. So apparently your affection for tyranny is conditional.

    Not sure what point you are trying to make about firearms, but without them, you become a subject, not a citizen.

    US constitution, amendment 1: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;... This means the US government cannot make me a Baptist, a Catholic, a Jew, a Moslem, a Witch, an Atheist or ancestor worshiper. They can't tax me and give the money to a National denomination. I have the freedom to believe whatever I choose without interference or coercion from the "State". Outside the US constitution, George Washington, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson have written on the separation of church and state.

    There is also global warming on Venus. It doesn't lessen the fact that global warming is happening on Earth.

    Obamacare is slavery? Then so is Social Security and Medicare. Trying to make health care affordable is slavery? I've read about American slavery. It included a lot of maiming, killing (you can't murder property) rape, whipping, torture and starvation. I really don't believe Obamacare will do that.

    A couple of months ago a man in Temple and his boy were walking/hiking on a road with a AR 15. Since then there has been 2 private parades of rifle owners.

    Worst president ever. A terrorist-loving Marxist who has done more damage to Real America and Real Americans than our stated enemies-he is the enemy within. So are his followers in his cult of personality. The time has come to repeal obamacare and impeach Obama, and send him and his ilk packing to North Korea where they belong. Then we Real Americans can restore the Constitution and control over the government, who are our EMPLOYEES-not our RULERS.

    Anyone who states that "climate change" is somehow a concern for mankind, now knowing that the whole hoo-be-doo of "climate change" or "global warming" has been proven a deliberate HOAX by actual scientists, really warrants no further attention from serious intellectuals.

    It is not your body we are concerned about, it is the baby you are going to kill. Why can't you all take birth control? Also where have you been walking down the street and someone had an AR-15? Were you in a war zone? Me I'm to old to run and try to escape so I prefer to have a form of protection if someone breaks in and tries to harm me. Women do clutch their purses closer and lock car doors if they think they are in danger and it doesn't matter if they are black, white or purple, it is a form of protection. Obama needs to shut his mouth and govern everyone, black, white or purple, and quit dividing our country.

    Fact is Obama Care is a form of slavery as it gives the government control of our heath and not we the people which has worked for about 100 years of the best care in the world until Obama and he Democrats wanted to control our health for the benefit of Unions and other lobbyist.

    And and unseen evil spin off is it is changing and screwing the US worker including you fool blacks / Now most workers instead of the old full time work are finding them selves working part time and paying ( via the dam IRS for their own health care ) so reducing the amount of money flowing in the US making the USA a much poorer Nation than before Obama came into office. ( I don't see Hillary changing that bad situation so Obama has cursed the USA just as he and his friend Holder used to lay on the church floor and kick their heels in joy as the Rev Wright said G** America . and Obama has just done that to the USA.

    THe GOP has missed the main point about Obama Care as it make us total slaves of the IRS..So the GOP to save us from the IRS trap needs to impeach both Obama and the Supreme Court that cursed us with Obama care . And those us whom use TRI CARE will soon find that Obama has plans to destroy that and put us all on Obama Care.

    All the whining by Obama about stealing from the rich to give to the poor does not apply to him self and his staff of Chicago thugs .They are the greedy one making huge amounts of money off the climate change scam ( climate change is not a earth event but a world event yes on even worlds with out humans - and to think the government do a better job than GOD is very stupid look at Obama Care spin)

    And Obama defending that punk who jumped on a Latino because he though he was a white honkey gay and got shot . as his son is more reason to shoot that punk .as the Zimmerman trail has shown that most of you black folks DNA prevents you from understanding how a civilized world works and that is the main reason that Blacks in Africa has failed to produce a civilized nation.

    And Obama will go down in history as the President whom destroyed the once great USA.
    Fact is Obama is a enemy of the USA just look at the Ft Hood massacre by a radical Muslim that has the full support of Obama. The Ft Hood massacre is why we need to Impeach and Impale Obama and staff in the rose garden.
    Then their is the price of gas going up causing more misery for we the people by a radical evil enemy of a civilized people..

    Oh please another diehard Democrat getting facts from MSNBC! Obamacare there is no such thing please do some research and get the name right.

    The Affordable Care Act will cost the average working family of two; $5000.00 a year.

    This President has no compassion for the unborn. I don’t care about your body I care about the human life that you want to flush down a sink. Why are the majority of abortion mills in minority neighborhoods? Look up Margaret Sanger founder of Planned Parenthood and her compassion for people of color.

    NASA has proven global warming on Mars—last I checked not too many SUVs or cow on Mars.

    Please show were in the Constitution and Bill of Rights where it says a SEPRATION of Church and State?

    The Texas Constitution
    Article 1 – Section 23
    Every citizen shall have the right to keep and bear arms in the lawful defense of himself or the State; but the legislature shall have the power by law, to regulate the wearing of arms, with a view to prevent crime.

    Last I checked it’s a free country so please move to Chicago that has strict gun control laws you will FEEL safe in that murder capital. Law abiding citizens are not the problem.

    More children are killed in bathtub accidents in the United States than gun accidents.

    Stop drinking the Kool-Aide and get some real hard facts.

    I’m Dr. Strangelove and I approve this comment.
