To the Editor:
This election year we have two Obamas running for president. Not many people realize it, thanks to the news media and President Obama.
The first Obama is the one who is seen on TV campaigning and at the many fundraisers. He is also the one who is busy providing an extra benefit to various minority or voting groups through executive orders, implementing regulations by cabinet members, and, as in Obama care, through the previously Democrat Congress. He is the one who is promoting class warfare in order to garner votes.
The second Obama is one that most of us do not hear about. He's the one who has signed about 923 executive orders since taking office. Many more than has been signed by previous presidents. Many of these give the president power to take over the operation of our government and private organizations. Some say this is an attempt to bypass congress and accomplish his goals without being inhibited by congress.
This is also the Obama whose plan is to implement several (five at last count) United Nations treaties. The treaties would relinquish power and control to such activities as the seas, our courts, our local governments, sale of small arms, and the rights of children.
It has been reported that, as a part of the Law of the Seas Treaty, President Obama gave away to Russia several thousand square miles of our sovereign territory including seven Alaskan Islands and hundreds of square miles of oil reserves. And, based on his "Open Mic" slip with Russian President Medvev, we really don't know what else he and Putin have planned.
The treaties Obama would implement during a second term are the UN Treaty to Regulate Arms Trade; the UN Law of the Seas Treaty; the UN Rights of the Child Treaty; Agenda 21 (control of local governments); and the UN International Criminal Court Treaty.
Whether you are a Republican or a Democrat you should be incensed at the very idea that all these changes could be made. It's really important that the voters learn what an Obama second term would be like. It would appear that a vote for Obama would be a vote for Obama and the United Nations to take over a large part of our government, as well as private enterprises.
Let's hope and pray that this does not happen and that this great country remains free and also that we can continue to enjoy our American way of life.

I’ve not kept it a secret that I find people who dress their dogs in clothes to be, to put it nicely, somewhat more than just eccentric. And many friendly, helpful readers out there have not kept it a secret that they really wish I would not express my views about dogs dressed as humans.

Distrust of government secrecy has been elevated to an exceptional level with the disclosure the Justice Department covertly examined two months of Associated Press phone records to determine who leaked details to the AP about a foiled terrorist plot.
The federal government recently announced new regulations for buying fast food.
It sounds like the plot from a dystopian libertarian novel. The word “patriot” and the phrase “educating on the Constitution and Bill of Rights” triggered heightened scrutiny from the most intrusive agency in the federal government.
The action at the bird feeder has been spectacular lately: Cardinals, finches, songbirds in impressive variety crowding around all day long in search of sustenance. It is truly gratifying …
For my neighbor.
That’s what it’s like at his feeder.

Everyone presumes that Sen. Chuck Schumer, the media-hungry Democrat from New York, wants to be the next Senate majority leader. His performance in the negotiations over the Gang of Eight immigration plan should bolster his case for an eventual promotion.
Someone had to take the fall for President Barack Obama thoughtlessly drawing a “red line” threatening serious consequences if Syria used chemical weapons. It turns out that it is the president himself.
There were other issues that had potentially greater financial impact or will leave a more resolute imprint on people’s lives, such as Medicaid expansion and Common Core.
It happens every year at this time; I make a little dandelion whine. So here goes.

It’s a bleak scenario. A massive earthquake along the New Madrid fault kills or injures 60,000 people in Tennessee. A quarter of a million people are homeless.
