Opinion Letters

Don't let anyone tell you there's no conspiracy or that conspirators are not busily at work here in our "exceptional" country full of "superior" people.

It's not written anywhere. There's no "agenda" to read or way to order your very own printed copy. You won't find it on a site like Google, where you can select from an assortment of opinion written by various authors (many offer valid research based on facts but, sadly, others promote flawed opinion).

But, yes, there is definitely a conspiracy out there working against you and me. It's organized by those multi-billionaires often called Plutocrats or Oligarchs. It's advanced by well-paid minions and media shills, leaders and members of groups like "ALEC". Most names are readily available and have been publically reported. They've spent billions on past elections to influence your thinking so you'll slavishly allow them to control you, your children, and the future of our country.


I am opposed to a ban on "assault" weapons and high-capacity magazines.

Military-style weapons in the hands of the people carry more benefit for civilization than harm to civilization.

It is true that they can be used for barbaric acts, such as the slaughter of children at Sandy Hook. However that may be, in the old days this slaughter could not have happened. In the old days, among so many adults as there were at Sandy Hook, more than one would have had a gun of his own and one of them would have put bullets into the barbarian at Sandy Hook before he killed 20 children, or probably even five. Nor in the old days would a school have been advertised as a gun-free zone.


David Snell’s letter of 1-10-13 ( National forests site of illegal actvity) proves that people can fail to see the forest for the trees. He laments the fact that the prohibition of marijuana has caused illegal growing in national forests, some by illegal aliens, but seems to be unable to make the connection: When alcohol was prohibited by law, illegal distilleries and smuggling were rampant, but that virtually disappeared when prohibition was lifted. If marijuana was available legally and growing was regulated and taxed, our forests would once again cease to be a viable alternative for criminal cartels.


DSS issues special thanks to community members

The Macon County Department of Social Services would like to extend our appreciation to the following sponsors for their generous contributions, which helped to brighten Christmas for our children in foster care.

We would like to give a special “Thank You” to Jane Long for her time and hard work in coordinating this partnership between our agency and the community. Again, we would like to express our gratitude to all that were involved. You have made many kids’ Christmas truly memorable.
