Letters to the editor

Disabled veterans

An open letter to all members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. We, the membership of the VFW, must demand that the corrupt kangaroo court system of dealing with our disabled veterans be stopped. The denial of millions of disabled claims is criminal and should be investigated and due process should be afforded to our disabled veterans.

I have made Florida's governor, California's governor and a Texas Senator aware, and made charges in the news media against the Veterans Administration, the VFW on charges that they stole trillions of dollars out of the pockets of our disabled veterans.

"Silence in the face of evil, is evil."

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."

A complete list of VFW-accredited service officers, one for every state, are noted in our VFW magazine, page 28, who act as both judge and jury, no due process. It should be investigated by the federal government and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for theft of both tax dollars and co-pays out of the pockets of disabled veterans.

Feeding bears

The wild bear feeding situation should be recognized objectively rather than emotionally. Feeding a wild bear results in a mandatory death sentence for the bear, plus potential injury or death to people within at least a 10-mile radius. Animal lovers, use some common sense.

Many years ago a friend of mine was mauled by a bear and would have been killed had it not been for a man close by who was armed with a shotgun.

Feed for birds or other animals should be elevated in such a way that bears could not reach it.

Legalizing pot

Men, women, boys and girls who attempt to stupefy themselves will find they are indeed stupid. We have a world with an abundant supply of stupid people and the more stupid they become, the more likely they are to vote for people who are stupid themselves.

The Democratic Party is already owned by stupefactions. Now the party wants to legalize more stupefaction by legalizing the stupefacient called marijuana (pot.) There is a reason sober people call them "potheads."

If we are not careful, the stupecants will be in control of both parties. To quote a great philosopher: "Stupid is as stupid does." Our only hope is to turn back to God.

Pay requests

I was listening to the debate on Bill HR 3193 and stopped when I heard Sean Duffy/Wisc ask "Where does an employee tell their employer how much he is to be paid?"

Well, Congress, of course.
