Cuts To Meals On Wheels Are Outrageous

March 24, 2013

To the Readers’ Forum: I hung my head in disbelief. In our local Post-Journal paper, the headlines read ‘‘Cuts Could Impact Progra....

Conservatives don't want the government to take their money and decide who needs financial help and that the churches should handle "charity" locally. Here is an excellent opportunity for a couple of local ministers to step up and put their good works where their mouths are. I guess Mel is too busy posting on this website.

Yoo Hoo, Rev Mel! I am still waiting for an answer. What services does your church provide to women who you do not want to have abortions? Why can't your church and Pastor Short's church take up the slack and provide those 40 Meals-on-Wheels. Does you church provide ANY services to the community? With the divorce rate almost 60% and 47% of US children being raised in single parent households, why aren't you writing scolding letters-to-the-editor about infidelity, adultery and the sanctity of marriage among heterosexuals? These problems are brought to us courtesy of traditional marriage yet you try to blame it on same-sex marriage. Try answering these questions instead of posting more questions because you are ashamed of how you would have to answer.

Back to the original subject. The cuts are here and some people don't like them. It shows that we (as a people) have become so numb to creeping socialism that we revolt when asked to SLOW the pace and actually do something for ourselves. "What do you mean I have to be responsible for my own life? Why doesn't Uncle Sugar love me anymore? Waaaa. Waaaa. Waaaaaaaa!" It is a VERY rare day when I don't have at least one of my staff call in "sick". The reality of it is, Uncle Sugar makes it much more lucrative to just sit at home. Whatever you don't EARN, the gov't will gladly hand you on a silver platter. Public service announcements literally BEG you to sign up for "benefits" (entitlements). Every gas bill comes with an insert advocating LIHEAP. WAKE UP PEOPLE. SOMEBODY HAS TO PAY! Those for big gov't are happy to let SOMEONE ELSE pay. It's going to end, soon. I promise you it is not going to be pretty.

FedUpL8ly, you can talk about the thirty-some countries and the UN resolutions all you want. The fact remains that the invasion of Iraq would not have happened if it were not for two people - Bush and Cheney. Period. So many times I have been asked how to prove a negative. Please tell me. Please tell me how Hussein was supposed to prove the destruction of WMDs that were not there? Plenty of UN inspectors went there numerous times and found nothing. You are still trying to convince yourself and others that one of worst mistakes this country has ever made was invading Iraq. My whim remark was referring to how the world felt about us after the fact - that we could not be relied on to use caution with international affairs. It was not that long ago when most countries did not want U.S. tourists and it was advised that we not travel abroad - all because of that insane war. Does this jog any of your memory or are you conveniently forgetting. History will prevail.

And my questions to Pastor Short and Rev Mel still go unanswered. I guess they are too embarrassed to answer.

On a whim,Howard? You certainly are consistent in proving your ignorance of recent history. Thirty-some countries went into Iraq with the U.S. and the UN vote was unanimous in condemning Hussein for violating 18 UN resolutions. You also seem to conveniently forget that the onus wasn't on Bush but that all of the UN resolutions demanded Hussein PROVE that he had destroyed the WMD's. The biggest mistake Bush made was not going on TV everyday, like Obama, and reminding America of those facts. And let's face it, the mainstream media is all to happy to not report any facts that make GW or any other non-liberal look good unless they're forced to do it.

OMG Seadog, pay attention. Bush and Cheney knew the information was false! That is the whole point! The "back alley" meeting that they convinced everyone of WMDs never took place! Besides, the Iraq government was on our side concerning Al Qaeda - they hated them as much as we do. Now the country is an Al Qaeda breeding ground. And America is now known as a country that will invade another on a whim. This war will go down as one of its blackest times in history.

"yes W had false info that he used to convince the democrats to vote for the war! Proven fact"

So according to Howie, W had false information. BUT, even though he had the information he gave to Dems., not knowing it was false, it was his war. What a moron.

Where did Rev Mel disappear to? Is he ever going to answer my question about why his and Pastor Short's churches cannot step up and provide the 40 meals-on-wheels that have been cut? If they have time to write letters to the editor, post on this site, and involve themselves in political activities, certainly they must have a lot of free time so where are those meals? Where are the services they could provide to mothers who cannot care for another child? You know, the ones they don't want to have abortions.

Nice to be able to forget Bill Clinton and Al Gore also claimed Iraq had WMD's before W ever was in the running. But, that's what dems do.

"khulumzurug Mar-24-13 6:30 AM time for the churches to step up, not the taxpayers. if the idiots that run the catholic church can afford 100's of millions in lawsuits, they afford a few meals." Sorry Khul, can't do it. There's this little thing called "separation of church and state". Remember? Long ago America decided to make the gov't their god, to have it supply all their needs. Now it (socialism) is failing, as we knew it would. So what now? Return to the one, TRUE God for help. Sorry, you can't serve two masters. Pick one and live with the blessings, or the misery.

Seadog, you spin spin spin - aren't you getting dizzy? One more time - yes W had false info that he used to convince the democrats to vote for the war! Proven fact. How have I been proven wrong? Because democrats voted for the war? Show me where I said they didn't. What a farce you can be - you just can't stand it that your beloved W was a bad president and should have been impeached for war crimes. Ever hear of the Geneva Convention? Apparently W hasn't. Any more wild accusations?

To one and all who trumpet poll results. Polls are often manipulated and unscientific. A much better indicator is the fact Harry Reid and other Democrats wouldn't support Dianne Feinstein's efforts for stricter gun controls. Now to Howard who sadly clings to his incorrect version of history. Just weeks before the March 2003 Iraq invasion, the French said that they had proof positive of Iraq having WMD's. Shortly before that, the German Intelligence said the same thing. Several Iraqi generals said that WMD's were truck convoyed to Syria shortly before March 2003. Since Obama is convinced that Syria has WMD's, it will be interesting, in the future, if Howard thinks Obama lied if they're never discovered. And if they are real, their origin should prove interesting, as long as someone other than the Obama administration does the verifying.
