No donkeys allowed?

To the editor:

Re Donkey lover

In reply to R.W.’s letter lambasting the Romney-Ryan Republican presidential ticket, poor ole R.W. was apparently injured by an elephant many years ago, and holds a fierce resentment for all elected pachyderms.

The American electorate has poor choices for our next president. Obama is owned and controlled by the Chicago mob and the Wall Street mob. Romney is owned by the Wall Street gang and the Israeli lobby.

Obama is left of Marx and Lenin.

Romney is to the right of Attila the Hun and Genghis Khan. Neither candidate is good for our once great Republic. Both political parties have become a joke. Obama, so far, has refrained from going to war with Iran.

Shortly after the November election, we will be at war with Iran, regardless of who is elected.

Our county government has become a majority of elephants. A donkey can’t get elected in our county government.

Our Republicans  are not perfect, but they are better than the Demos they replaced. Chicago would welcome you as a resident. R.W. Rahm Emanuel would probably present you the key to the city.

You Demos are just about extinct in Hunt County. You wild liberals fear the T Party and rightly so. Cruz will trample Sadler. Texas voters elect the lesser of the two evils.

If Obama would embrace the second amendment and pledge not to get involved in a no-win war with Iran, I and many other Republicans would vote for him.

Our welfare and constant warfare and 40 percent of the workforce employed by government entities assure us we are close behind Greece and Europe, and probably near the implementation of martial law.

  • Kill the YMCA project

    In addressing the city council on July 8th, YMCA board president Andy Bench made a bold and highly questionable claim that raised a red flag in my mind. He referenced the alleged financial commitment made by The Greenville Independent School District to help pay for his proposed $15 million taxpayer funded YMCA.

  • Already missed

    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.
