Corrupting our country

This is a response about the rant "Get over it" about our president.

Well, I am not going to get over it, because he is hell-bent on ruining this country; and you need to take those rose-colored glasses off your face and start looking around and see what he is really doing.

He is corrupting our country.

People, like you, who are ignorant and don't want to pay attention, that's why our country is going down a rat hole, because of you people.

You need to start paying attention to what he is really doing.

Forget how wonderful they are

I have a little rant here, after reading your paper last week. It is in response to "Get over it. He is our President."

I look forward to Hometown News each Friday, where everyone can express their opinions.

Your rant shows me that you don't keep up with what is happening to our country, and what our next generation will have to face.

Forget how wonderful the president and his wife are, as most all of the past presidents and their wives were wonderful, too.

So, you get a life, and start concentrating on important things, like getting our country back on track.

Comparing cars to people

You jumped to conclusion too fast. We've been created different from each other, so we can identify each other by certain characteristics; and that's exactly what I meant by comparing the cars to people of that country - just like American cars were famous of being big and long, just like most Americans are big and long, I don't think anyone can deny that.

I respect every country on this globe and it's people, no matter who they are and where they live; but you can't deny the special characteristics that have been given to them by the creator. And if someone mentions their God-given features, you count it as an insult. I hope you understand that much.

In short, my opinion is that Henry Ford, an American, invented the automobiles, and as Americans, we should honor his invention and support him and be proud of him, to made life easier for all of us. We should support American car companies.

That's just my opinion. Thank you and God.

Read the Florida Driver's Handbook

You might want to read it or have someone read it for you: the Florida Driver's Handbook, Chapter 3, Your Driving.

It says something about driving requiring your full attention.

Of course, if you don't have time to read it at home or at work, you could text your friends about it or go online with your phone and read it while you are driving.

Moving the free clinic?

When I read an article in the newspaper citing that the free clinic was looking to relocate to a more central location in Brevard County, I was disheartened.

I am moving to Palm Bay, have no insurance and was going to one day use their facilities if, God forbid, I get sick. Now, there will be nowhere to go.

I don't have a car, which brings me to another health concern. I can't enjoy my balcony because of the unemployed chain smoker. He has been out of work for more than a year now. All day long, he stands on his patio smoking generic cigarettes while his wife, a sports fan, works days and nights. He graduated from college. You would think he would get a career. English is his first language, and he isn't handicapped.

All the cigarette smoke makes it very hard to breathe.

In addition, we have another one next door to them but smokes a cigar, but that one, at least, goes out for 10 hours at a time; whereas, the cigarette smoker puffs all day long,

Pray for me. Hopefully, Brevard County will ban cigarette smoking in apartments.

Children shot

A speaker at the NRA convention in Houston said that a family should keep a second gun in their child's bedroom in the event the child is screaming and they can't get to the other gun.

In Central Florida, we've had three small children shot by small guns.

Treason disguised as terrorism

What these men did was an act of terrorism; of that, there is no doubt. However, as the younger of the pair had several months earlier on Sept. 11, no less, taken an oath that those of us who were born here aren't asked to take. So, when he did this terrible, dishonorable, un-American thing, he committed treason.

Make no mistake. He attacked the heart of the Constitution, which he swore to defend - an act punishable by death.

To the author of 'Wanting'

Do you, yourself, actually know anybody, who relies solely on government public assistance to exist; not live, just exist?

For what we get is simply not enough to be considered a living at all.

You talk as if I haven't actually earned my meager disability check; as if, during my entire working life, I didn't pay for it either.

Do everyone a favor and open your eyes and close your mouth.

Thank you. Have a nice day.

It is a great newspaper

Thank you again for your beautiful paper that I can read and have pleasant news to make you feel better and think that everything is right with the world.

Also, I would like to thank you for putting the article in about my cat that was free to a good home. Thank you very much for that. That has been taken care of. I really appreciate it, and I appreciate everything in your paper.

And, if people don't care what is written about (in Rants & Raves/Letters) and find themselves insulted by something that is said, it is their problem, not the other person's.

Thank you, and have a good day.

Jesus has the answers

We live in the greatest country, the United States of America.

Are we perfect? Not by any means, but what do we have to do to get our country back?

The one and only answer is our Lord, Jesus Christ.

All you have to do is study his words, the holy Bible.

In his words are the answers to every problem that we have.
