To the editor:
One of our presidential candidates believes our Constitution needs to be changed. In other words, they got it all wrong. “Needs to be softer and gentler and distribute more.” He said he could make a difference in the troubled Middle East.
Oops… Forty countries have now burned American flags and they say “Death to America.”
Oops… Then they burned our Embassy and killed four Americans.
Oops… They also didn’t know they were pleading for help to be sent… None came — denied.
He had many documents sealed from his past. He has many questionable friends in Washington positions. He lost track of hundreds of AK47 guns that were let go across the border … hundreds now killed by them.
Hugo Chavez thanks him for millions he gave them to drill for oil.
Fidel Castro thinks he is great and doing a good job.
Russia’s Putin is waiting and hoping he will win so “he can be more flexible.,” and he’s changing the face of America to a culture of his liking.
You might want to hug your grandchildren … again.

Applaud Court’s return to interpretive sanity
I applaud the Supreme Court’s return to Constitutional interpretive sanity in its recent finding in favor of Hobby Lobby and other closely held companies, to decline to pay for certain medications that they believe violate their religious beliefs.
Take care of children crossing over border
The beautiful little Hispanic children coming across the border from Mexico and South America…
Not too late to stop proposed YMCA center

Perkins should abstain from YMCA vote
What if you were a judge? What if you were also Board President of a non profit organization?
Say no to YMCA on Tuesday
An April 28, 2013 ad in the Herald Banner stated that the YMCA/Event Center bond would only add an additional 2.5 cents to the Greenville property tax rate.
When I moved back to Greenville after living 17 years in South Texas, I took the advice of my friend, Dr. Bill Thorn, who advised me to become an expert in some field. It didn’t matter what.
Freedom of religion
Texas Constitution and the YMCA
