Scott doesn't need saving

December 24, 2013 

A letter writer who was a career airman and said former congressman Jerry Costello would save Scott Air Force Base from closure. Sorry, he has made a career of scaring voters about that issue.

I was also a career airman and Scott has never been close to being closed and won't be in the near future, if ever. Has U.S. Rep. John Shimkus used that scare tactic? He won't. Can't cure stupid.

Churches will have to start having their own schools so that the liberals can't teach their children that wrong is right and right is wrong. They don't want their children being taught that a perverted behavior is normal, that marriage is not just between a man and a woman.

Even now they are trying to start normalizing plural marriage.

It has become the norm to have children without the benefit of marriage and that is why children are failing in school. Duh.

It has been accepted to kill our children. How many world leaders and great minds have been expunged because the "right" of a pregnant woman trumps the right of the child to life. How disgusting is that?
