Other worries

To the editor:

Dorothy Martin’s fond memories of the fair (Public Forum, Aug. 9) are wonderful but, from the flip side of things, not everyone is involved in 4-H but just enjoys the fun and carefree adolescence that the fair brings once a year.

None of the children pictured are mine, but they could have been. I personally know one of the children in the photo and know his parents quite well, and I can assure you that this young man would make any parent proud. Would it surprise you to know he is an honor student? Perhaps the behavior in the photo was not to your liking and perhaps you don’t relate or understand enjoying the local fair if you were so busy preparing, planning and showing your exhibit. But from my perspective, this young man has displayed much more respect for others than you have.

It is quite presumptuous of you to assume that any of these teenagers or any other teenagers living in Lawrence will be contacting the local SRS office for anything based on a photo printed in the Journal-World. If you need a bandwagon to get on, let’s work on the priests that love to fondle our children, or the Christians that don’t act very Christian-like, or better yet, our corrupt government officials. Let me guess; are you from the same generation as Gov. Brownback? We should all be worried for the future — of Kansas.

The GOP party is dead. Republicans do not think like Brownback.


Quit Voting RINO

These RINO's care about money and power. Yes Koch Bros are nut jobs just like the Wal-Mart family and both are billionaires through no fault of their own. Yet both are funding think tanks and other PAC"s that represent lower wages for most all americans blue and white collar.

STOP electing RINO’s ! My My father in law left the RINO party because he is a fiscal conservative republican with at least 50 years under his belt. Evermore stunning he is working with the democrat party in Pennsylvania.

RINO's focus is privatization of as much government as possible. Not because private industry can do anything better or more efficient. It is because these private industry nut jobs want OUR trillions of tax dollars in their bank accounts.

Then OUR trillions of tax dollars can be spent evermore recklessly after all the most reliable source of fraud against consumers and taxpayers is private industry. Case in point: remember Sen Bill Frist? He and his family own a few HMO's that which ripped Medicare for billions. These white collar criminals should be in jail and never allowed to have access to medicare dollars again.

Privatization = expansion of government by way of YOUR tax dollars

Do you want MORE of your tax dollars spent on:

  1. CEO's
  2. Stock options
  3. Shareholders
  4. golden parachutes
  5. special interest campaign contributions
  6. corp jets
  7. 3 martini dinners
  8. lawyers defending against fraud charges
  9. dishonest campaign commercials
  10. homes in Aspen,Colorado

Republicans should quit voting for RINO's!

How many times today will you post this same tripe, merrill?

Flag it as SPAM.... I wonder how many people it takes to do this before a post is removed.

The republicans probably love merrill, he has probably caused many a democrat to leave the party with his incessant copy and pasting of the drivel nobody reads. They figure the rest of the democrats will become like him and want nothing to do with a party like that. The republicans thank you merrill.

Debbie, Ignoring the last few boring repetitive posts, I thought your letter was fine.

Very nasty personal attacks, Ms. Harker. Ms. Martin and I didn't care for the LJ World's photograph choice for their article about the county fair. You're okay with it. Why not leave it at that?
