Sex change

They say prisoners are eligible for medically necessary procedures. I can handle that. Since when is a sex change medically necessary? Let the prisoner or his family pay for it, not the taxpayers! How can a judge be so stupid?

We’re in trouble

In response to “not a fan of Duck Dynasty”: What a twisted world we’ve created where people who “stand up against” a show based on family, love of everyone, clean living and basic religion are considered “moral and upstanding.” And replying to a question by accurately quoting the Bible is “hate speech”? I guess we need more Kardashians and Honey Boo Boo. We’re in trouble.

Half-staff

It seems years ago the only time the U.S. flag was flown at half-staff was on Memorial Day and upon the death of a national figure such as a president or former president. Now it seem the flag is constantly at half-staff and no one seems to know why. It’s like we’re always in mourning. I understand the intent is to honor special people, but it’s really gotten out of hand and it diminishes the symbolism of the national flag.

Zealots

You folks at The Eagle-Tribune need to practice what you preach. You publish an editorial saying how far we still have to come in relation to Dr. Martin Luther King’s “Dream” speech, especially when it comes to the Internet, yet you condone the posting of unadulterated bigotry towards the president of the United States by the right-wing zealots in your opinion section daily.

Bush lies

Is that all you people can talk about, Benghazi? How about when Bushes killed millions of people and tripled the national debt and doubled the unemployment and much worse, stole the first election. Wake up, people. Oh, and Bush lied about WMD and there were many more lies from the Republicans.
