Mail: Can't feel right about this presidentTell North Platte what you think

From the beginning I didn’t feel right about Barack Obama being President of the United States.

He displayed a disdain for his elective country in, maybe considered by some as little ways, like refusing to salute our flag, or wearing a flag lapel pin. I remember his tell-all campaign speech, “We live in the greatest Nation, now help me change it.”

That should have been an ample warning of his transform America agenda that he is determined to continue. Just pay attention to how he is trying to turn American sovereignty over to the despicable United Nations.

I am angry. I watch the twice-elected president tearing down my country, maybe beyond repair, and there doesn’t seem to be anything I can do about it.

I am more angry that the administration was so adamant to declare they had ended the war in Iraq that they insisted all American troops be removed from there. Now the black insurgent flag is flying in Iraq.

The United States has always left peacekeeping forces in countries we were victorious over in war. I was with the occupation Army in Germany and that was a dozen years after the end of the second World War.

I figure I have a license to write this. As folks may know, my grandson Josiah was killed in an ambush while on patrol in Iraq in 2007. Joe would have told you he needed to be there, that he and his fellow soldiers were doing some good by being there, which they were, a great deal of good. What a waste.

I know we certainly have to respect the office of the presidency of the United States. We absolutely aren’t required to respect who occupies that office.

His race or skin color has nothing to do with that.
