Courthouse clock needs fixing

To the Editor:

Can't handle it anymore. Get the courthouse clock working. No face light on clock tower at night and no bells. What's up? Need answers.

Boxer statements analyzed

To the Editor:

On Oct. 14 Senator Barbara Boxer compared conservative House GOP members to those who commit domestic abuse. She is referring to the action by those conservatives to warn America that implementing Obamacare will massively increase our public debt.

What Boxer is hiding from us is that an increase in debt load creates an erosion of confidence in the United States treasury bills. This has a negative impact on the long term solvency of the United States of America.

People in positions of power in China and Japan are now questioning why our government leadership refuses to reduced our out-of-control spending. We cannot kick the can down the road any longer.

On this 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Boxer doesn't mention the 54 million abortions conducted in this country nor show remorse for this disrespect for human life. Murder of the unborn is the ultimate act of domestic abuse. Speeches at every Democratic National Convention reference abortion of a pro-choice platform to huge cheers from the rabid convention hall audience.

Senator Boxer and her cohorts must realize that labeling conservatives as domestic abusers will not create a stronger dollar.

Instead the dollar will continue to lost value resulting in a financial panic that will severely impact our youth, middle class and retirees.
