Government has no right to manage every facet of life
Since Valerie Etter finds the conservative values of the Grand Valley so offensive, I suggest that she consider moving to the east or west coasts where her beloved progressive causes, i.e. socialism and fascism, are in full force.
I also find it interesting that she ridicules the phrase “shame on everyone,” since that seems to be Obama’s mantra when it comes to gun control.
I am offended by her supposition that just because we don’t believe that the government can raise our children better then we can or manage our lives without their control that we don’t care about the “kiddos.” We care just as much about the children, our country and our land as anyone else, we just don’t believe that the government has the right to tell us how to do everything and manage every facet of our lives. That is why we have the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the constitutional amendments.
Finally, we are not a democracy; we are a representative republic. I recommend that Etter read the history of Germany and Russia during the 1930s and 1940s, so we don’t make the same mistakes they did.
Allegations about Brainard are untrue, ridiculous
I have known Rick Brainard for more than four years on a business and personal level. These allegations are untrue and completely ridiculous.
Brainard is a 100 percent, all-around, upstanding good guy. Anyone who truly knows him knows this.
The truth will eventually come out that he is, in fact, innocent. He is the guy you call for nonjudgmental business and personal advice.
I stand behind Rick Brainard 100 percent.
Anonymous donors receive Silt family’s gratitude
I want to apologize for a late thank-you. I want to thank the couple that sent the anonymous money to our family. It came at the right time.
My husband is the Silt junk man, and we have a little girl. Thanks again. We are broke, if anyone can help.
Thanks again. Sorry it took so long to thank you
