Letter to the Editor: We’re ready for an Article V Convention of the States

The Founders of our Constitution empowered state legislators to be guardians of liberty against abuses of power by the federal government. The abuse is on our economy and the trajectory must come to an end. So, it must be understood, this process starts at your State Representative and District Senator officials. Your state legislators must be urged to support this process, if not, support a candidate that will. I know Rep. Haggerty and Sen. John Blake do not support this process.

Letter to the Editor: Horse racing exposed: drugs, deception, and death

Horse racing is best described as institutionalized exploitation of baby horses. Imagine being pushed beyond the point of exhaustion: the bones in your legs straining to hold up the weight of your body, your bleeding lungs incapable of taking in enough air, and you’re forced to keep running despite it all. This is what life is like for racehorses who are chronically drugged by trainers in order to mask their pain and enhance their performance.

Letter to the Editor: 1968 PA law defined “weather modification”

The rest of the bill is law and regulation. After reading it you realize no one is following the law. Does any one inform you when they are modifying the weather? They are supposed to put it in the newspaper and the county they are doing it in. Does anyone know what the planes are spraying and why they are blocking our sun. Lack of sun causes many health problem for every living thing on this planet. What chemicals are coming out of those planes? How many people are compensated after they flood you? What they do is make you buy FEMA flood insurance. They are not safeguarding our life or property.

Letter to the Editor: Get the yellow fringe off my flag

Martial Law Flag “Pursuant to 4 U.S.C. Chapter 1, §§ 1,2,& 3; Executive Order 10834, August 21, 1959; 24 F.R. 6865; a military flag is a flag that resembles the regular flag of the United States, except that it has a YELLOW FRINGE border on three sides. The President of the United States designates this deviation from the regular flag, by executive order, and in his capacity as Commander-in-Chief of the military. The placing of a fringe on the national flag, the dimensions of the flag and the arrangement of the stars in the union are matters of detail not controlled by statute, but are within the discretion of the President as Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy.” 34 Ops. Atty. Gen. 83.

Rationing and taxes lurk in Obamacare — and the worst is yet to come

The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) was an early voice exposing how the law would cause rationing of healthcare. Obamacare supporters mocked the claim saying the legislation’s aim was to expand coverage, not reduce it. Carol Tobias, president of NRLC, says that Americans don’t yet realize that Obamacare will prevent them from spending their own money to pursue treatments deemed “ineffective” by the unelected, largely unaccountable Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB).

True Stories: Hospital magazine offers

Once I was in the hospital for a routine surgery, and was there for a week or so. On about my second day, a young man pushing a cart full of magazines and toiletries came into my room and stood by my bed with perfect posture, his hands folded neatly in front of him. He asked, “Would you like a magazine?” “Sure,” I answered. He started listing magazines in alphabetical order. “We have Allure, Better Homes and Gardens, Consumer Reports . . .” “I’ll take an Allure,” I said. “Okay, would you like the September or October edition?” I noted that I would like the October edition. He handed it to me, then walked out of the room and down the hall pushing his cart.

Alternate methods of applying for Obamacare that may be more effective than using HealthCare.gov

Told that we all need to finish applying for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act by a certain date, many of us are in a panic. Our main instruction has been “Apply online. Visit HealthCare.gov to get started.” But we all know firsthand — or have heard about — the nightmares people have been encountering attempting to sign up by this method.

State Representative Cox’s letter sheds light on school property tax legislative maneuvering

House Bill 1189 (H.B. 1189) was voted out of committee and brought to the full House for a vote. . . . I and some of my colleagues did not feel that this was the best method to use in addressing a very serious school property tax issue. For that reason, I placed the language of House Bill 76 (H.B. 76) into amendment form and attached it to H.B. 1189. My goal was to get a vote on H.B. 76 in that manner since the Finance Committee has refused to bring it up for a vote. Unfortunately, the amendment failed by a vote of 138–59 and ultimately, H.B. 1189 passed and has been sent to the Senate.
