Flinchum thanks Stone Soup Committee
To the editor:
Well, well, well. Although this letter is written during the Christmas Season, I would like to say thank you to so many people for the Thanksgiving Dinner that was prepared for our friends and loved ones through the Stone Soup Community Outreach. I truly don’t know who had the best day; those that prepared food, those that brought/sent food or donated money to the meal, or those lovely people that ate from our table. The memory of laughter, smiles, thankfulness, and good will that went out that week will remain forever in all our hearts. Again, thanks be to God the Father for allowing this community to come together for the Great Commandment: “Love one another.” Oh, how we have been blessed. And thanks to you for your contribution. Turkey and pie; a few dollars. Serving others; time well spent. Being able to praise God the Father and Thank You to Jesus in prayer before the meal; totally priceless! May your Christmas Season be blessed, as well as your new year. As Zoe Abney would say,”Love you infinity!”.
Much endured for Ben’s convenience
To the Editor:
Ben Chandler wants Kentucky’s 6th redistricted his way. His career endangered, Chandler’s been ingratiating himself with Kentucky legislators. No more talk of standing against his party. He’s become the consummate Democrat, for “A Ben in need is a friend indeed!”
We’ve endured much for Ben’s convenience. He’s held zero town hall meetings, declaring voters too uncivil to address en masse. Instead, he delivered a condescending lecture urging improvement of attitudes. Chandler’s own attitude, however, changes with the wind. When he wants something, he’s all smiles. When challenged, he goes “scorched earth.” His 2010 ads blared “criminal” accusations. Coal miners were threatened with death-by-employer; images of maltreatment assaulted seniors. This onslaught worked, but barely, so Ben wants new constituents to replace troublesome ones.
To whom does our district belong? There’s lately been much ado about percents. Chandler belongs to the .000016 percent – the ruling class in DC. Tiny, yet wielding great power, dictating terms of daily life. Ben votes as paid to or ordered to, while hiding from constituents, denying public discourse with him; preventing opportunities to evaluate his depth of knowledge or lack thereof. Chandler’s backhanded approach reveals an attitude of ownership; entitlement.
Chandler recently bragged that he has his foot on our necks and plans to keep it there.
If that’s your desired relationship with government, then stand aside as politicians implement Chandler’s redistricting plan. If not, call state GOP Senators, our only line of defense. We are the 99.999984 percent. We do hold power…unless we abdicate.
