Response to Shipp

Posted April 21, 2016 at 10:00 am

Editor:

In response to Angela Rachel Heather Shipp’s letter last week, I have been encouraged to make a response. I disagree that most people think that Planned Parenthood does not provide other services than abortion. I think most people do know that they provide other services, but do believe that they provide more abortions than any other clinic in the United States. I also believe that women, the elderly, the working poor, single moms, and children can get the same (or even better) services with the same insurance in many other clinics in the state of California and throughout the United States.

I do believe that, when a company resorts to crimes (in this situation, selling body parts) to make profits, they should be punished, even if it means defunding

    Tourism – invaders ain’t tourists, leave

    Greece is over run. Turkey is over run. Same for others. All Countries like visitors/tourists. Most nations have compassion for desperate people. No nation shows this more than America; 1800s Irish Potato famine and Europeans after WWII. America welcomes tourists. Problem is tourist metamorphoses into “J-Bird eggs” in the nests of the national economy that must fund those not wanting to become Americans. They want to take what belongs to Americans, and remain mid-east Muslims, Africans or Latins. It is not our taxpayer’s job to feed outsider “J-Birds” at the expense of their culture,

    Contested Convention

    Editor:

    It is very likely that we might have a contested convention in the GOP this year. Just what does that mean? If a candidate does not beat the 1,237 delegates needed in order to win the candidacy outright, there may be a contested convention, also known as a “brokered” convention, under the presumption that powerbrokers will negotiate backroom deals in order to determine the ultimate nominee.

    If this should happen, both Donald Trump and Ted Cruz could be tossed

    Planned Parenthood – Not just abortions

    Editor:

    Planned Parenthood seems to be under attack by quite a few people around the country who have not done their research to see what a fine organization it is.

    Most people think Planned Parenthood is an abortion clinic only. Wrong.

    All over the US, Planned Parenthood offers medical services to a wide variety of people, including the elderly, the working poor, single moms, children, and others who might not otherwise have access

    Weak-kneed in Georgia

    Editor:

    Georgia’s House Bill 757 was designed to protect ministers from having to perform same-sex marriages against their religious beliefs, religious institutions from having to rent their building for the same purpose, and allowing business owners to close down on Saturdays/Sundays to keep Holy the Sabbath Day. This bill, after some changes, passed in the State Senate by a margin of 38-14 and in the State House of Representatives by a margin of 161-0. This bill was vetoed by Governor Nathan Deal, a Republican, on March 28th,

    Value-Not always in the voter’s eyes

    Editor:

    Do ya want to grow up to be president? It is not important if ya know nothing. Not relevant if ya have never owned nothing or paid the costs of a successful business. Ya don’t even need a college degree (although I have 330 semester hours: 10 years and three degrees). I would not take the ethical pay cut, so I would not be interested in the job. If anyone needs to see my transcripts: trust me-I can dig’em up. They are buried behind my teepee

    Logic

    Editor:

    Planned Parenthood has been filmed participating in unsafe and criminal activities, including the sale of body parts. Hillary Clinton strongly supports and defends Planned Parenthood. Hillary represents the people who vote for her. This goes to show that it must be OK to participate in unsafe and criminal activities. Hmmm, I don’t think I like that kind of leadership for our country.

    Use your head

    Editor:

    At the present time the American people are engaged in the most chaotic Presidential campaign we have ever faced and the outcome of this election is the most important this nation has ever faced.

    We have a President who has done more harm to this nation after his first term than any foreign power could ever do and the voters were stupid enough to elect him to a second term. It is like Pogo the possum once said, ”We

    Note from Arizona prison

    Editor:

    I want to thank you for sending me the newspaper like you guys have. It has been such a blessing. I really wish I could get a subscription until January 2017. But again, I am indigent in prison and there are no jobs available to me currently.

    Disenchanted

    Editor:

    Just last December, Congress passed a $1.8 trillion tax and spending bill. I really do not feel that this was the will of the people. I sometimes feel that after we elect these people to office, they turn deaf ears on us. Therefore, many people have become disenchanted with the government.

    I was appalled to see the likes of our own Roy Blunt and Vicky Hartzler vote in favor of this omnibus bill, especially knowing that money would still
