Falling Bricks reaction
(Editor’s note: This was a “Soundoff” to the story this week about brick falling from the top of a downtown building)
To the Editor: If this had happened during Derrick Days, people could have been killed ...
In a recent conversation with the Mayor, I was told that there is not much the City can do about derelict buildings like the one owned by D.W. Vanderslice.
I think we can do one thing: put huge signs on these buildings identifying the owners and posting a warning that "if you walk near these buildings you could be hurt or killed, or if you park your car near these eyesores, it may be damaged or destroyed."
Mr. Mayor, this would be a start. But in the long run you and the City Council have to take some action to save our downtown with an effort to take strong action against these pathetic owners.
And does anyone actually believe that a 25mph wind gust blew these bricks off the building?
Proud Downtown Building Owner
To the Editor: Let's forget about skin color and ethnicity for a moment – please! Have you asked yourself why it seems that our current administration in Washington thinks they can spend the country out of debt? Does that make any sense? Could you spend yourself out of debt? It never made sense until recently.
President Obama is doing exactly what has been mapped out by others to bring about a financial crisis. There will not be enough room here except to list the different people and organizations he has aligned himself with over the years – even before 2008. If you care about America, check these people and organizations out for yourself. They are: ACORN, New Party of Chicago, Bill Ayers, Democratic Socialist of America, Saul Alinsky, and professors Cloward and Piven.
By the way, President Obama is not alone in these relationships – Secretary of State Clinton is too to an extent. Why these things were not brought out during the election of 2008 we will probably never know.
The “change” candidate Obama was promising was a change to a Socialistic State. He won't say this to the public but just research some of the people he has chosen to associate with.
We have an election coming up this November. I urge every reader to be color blind and to vote for the candidate that will bring us back to the America our founding fathers envisioned and fought for. The change President Obama promised might just lead to our demise – more government control and freedom from religion.
To the Editor: The Constitution, which is the Rule of Law designed to protect us from the Rule of Dictators, is being abandoned.
Just this week Leon Panetta, Sec. of Defense, told a Senate Committee that Obama, under the guise of national security, need only consult with the UN, NATO, and world leaders to fight a war against Syria without Congressional approval. Congressman Walter B. Jones is calling for impeachment. Tell your congressman to support him.
The first Ten Amendments are being systematically abandoned by Obama. They include our right to religious freedom
(Obamacare vs. Catholics), the right to assemble and protest peacefully (HR 347), and our right to a speedy trial after an arrest (NDAA). Soon, guns will be declared a health risk, and anyone possessing one will be an enemy of the state. Citizens deemed enemies can now be killed or detained indefinitely without a trial at Obama's insistence. (National Defense Authorization Act by McCain and Levin)
Sheriff Joe is under death threats since his task force concluded that the birth certificate Obama claimed publicly to be authentic is likely a forgery. Obama is using someone else's social security number. His draft card also is suspect. He committed a felony by failing to list AKA on his application for a lawyer's license. He has paid over $2 million to the Perkins Coie Law Firm to keep his records secret.
Is Obama a Marxist plant groomed to bankrupt us financially, morally and spiritually?

District Court, Court-At-Law Jury must report
