Missing something?

Am I missing something or did the subsidies for the Museum of Arts and Sciences and Tubman Museum that serve viable needs and education in our community just get axed? How can commissioners continue to subsidize Bowden Golf Course for far more than either museum used to get? Maybe someone can explain to me just what is wrong with that picture.

Frank Gadbois would have done everybody a favor if he would have thrown himself in the dumpster. The reason we are a free people is because we don’t have the stupid laws countries in Europe have. I guess he forgot what happened when Hitler took away guns.

Typical progressive

I was outraged, but not surprised, by Frank Gadbois recent letter published on June 5. Gadbois stated that he recently threw “two donated cases of a book, “Cuba in Revolution-Escape from a Lost Paradise” into a dumpster. A typical progressive action. He disagreed with the book’s contents and made the decision to make the books unavailable to more open-minded readers. I soon expect him to host a book burning.

Yellow journalism

The cartoon Sunday portends a false assumption concerning Fox News and its coverage of the Bowe Bergdahl case. I don’t understand your attitude as many news outlets have ignored so many misdeeds of this administration. This is most likely one of the most important cases in recent times

Thank goodness for Fox News and its reporting of news other outlets choose to ignore. Fox News always has both sides of issues. Yellow journalism is supposed to have ended with Hearst Newspapers. Apparently the left-leaning Telegraph is still in that mode.

Prayer for Today

Jesus, this is your helper. Glorify me so I can give glory back to our Father and you. My prayer is not for the whole world but for the ones you gave me. I will pass on to them the message you gave me. They accepted it and know that you have prepared a place for them in heaven. They know I’m from you and believe you sent me to convict the world of its sin. Lord, you told me that the false preachers were going to put me out of their churches and poison me. Thank you Lord, for telling me the devil’s poison is not going to hurt me. Now, the ones that you gave me believed and see your word is true. Jesus, bring me into the glory we shared before the world began. Amen.
