Dear Readers-

  As you know congress want to pass alone the Fairness Doctrine quickly  to curb or end viewpoints of those who disagree with the administration’s  opinion of the issues.  This idea is damaging at best and goes against our nation’s best interests.

  In this writer’s opinion, this is SOCIALIST at best and has to be stopped! Where in our constitution dose it say that people  do not have the freedom to opinions?  Why can’t I listen to conservative talk radio or watch it on television? The same goes for Catholic radio.  So, “if the administration can’t take the heat, stay out of the kitchen!” as Pres. Truman once said.

  What is next, the government telling you were to travel, what to eat, can’t own a gun to protect yourself in your own home or need a passport to go county to county? If the Fairness Doctrine passes, this will open the flood gates to other dangerous ideas by the administration. As a conservative Democrat, I feel we have a U.S. Constitution and we have to follow that. Not go with creeping Socialism that will wreak our nation!

           ” ONE STAR NURSING  HOMES.”

Dear readers-

  I like to read differant papers and keep up on current events. one newspaper I read, The Chicago Tribune had a story about “One Star Nursing Homes” (Sunday-02-07-09) The story contained gripping accounts of nursing home abuses, run down homes, and hiring of people who have criminal records to take care of the old. I am appalled!

  I know there are good homes out there that care about the people living there. I don’t agree on abuse of  old people and that bothers me. I  seen some home that were dirty and staff that didn’t care. Going back to my grandmother. I reported them.

  I feel the bad one should be regulated and those hired have a complete background checks and work check s also. Just as a school teacher would or anyone working in the public. As we know, there are strange people out there!

  I contacted my congresswoman and hope to hear from her. I will give a progress report on this because I feel this is serious and abuse must be known. Those homes have to brought to the full extent of the law!
