This Week's Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:

Every American should begin the day with prayer to God. Pray all day for protection from physical attack, car wrecks, disease, and loss of vital functions, etc.

Americans should not contemplate suicide, homicide, adultery, and pre-marital sex. Each of us has 300 plus million people to protect. Our countrymen deserve love from each of us even if we don't know them. We should lay down alcoholic drinks because of the number of people they are killing.

We should say goodbye forever to the evils we do that kill people. God, the Creator of mankind, can destroy us before we draw our next breath. God prefers to give us our next breath and many more. God who is our master prefers to be our servant. It is our duty to do right so He can serve us.We should ask for all good things such as healing us of alzheimers, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, etc. We should seek to free people from troubles of all kind just like the Thai Navy Seal that died trying to save young boys from a flooded cave.

Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.

That he strive for men he does not know and for a land whose fields he can not sow.

Greater love hath no man than Christ who in pain hung limply on the Cross.

The precursor of heaven's bliss. Greater love hath no man than this.

We should all be sealed in love for our countrymen and drop all of our evil acts for their sake and keep all evil thoughts from our minds.

Billy Joe Parker


Dear Editor:

Border Protection

A few years ago I read a very good history about the Comanche Indians of the southwest. They figured out early on how to breed really good horses that the Spanish explorers happened to leave laying around. Within a hundred years they became the best light cavalry in the world and probably the best that has ever been. They raided other Indians for thousands of miles in the west.

Every time the Spanish and subsequently the Mexicans tried to establish settlements further north into what is now the USA the Comanche raided them, burned their settlements, stole their stuff, including women and children, and they took great glee in inflicting hours of torture on those men they captured. The Apaches vacated the neighborhood when the Comanche showed up....
