The Word Transcendence and its Place in World Government One definition of the word transcendence is “The state of excelling, surpassing, or going beyond usual limits”. In human behavior we think of transcendence as progressing from the infant state where the infant thinks only of its individual needs, and demands immediate attention from parents for […]

Dear Editor, I am responding to an article that appeared in your newspaper on January 5 submitted by Dr J.B. Hardgroder. I very much enjoy reading Dr. Hargroders articles. I would agree with him politically and philosophically about 98 percent of the time. But, I must take exception to this particular article. The two objections […]

Dear Editor, Christmas, Christians, and other Religions; or those with no Religion: Some describe a fine line principle as the small difference that sometimes separates what is good from what is evil, or what is right from what is wrong. A word such as “Pogrom” sounds much like Program, and could easily be confused when […]

Shutdown was Pointless

Dear Editor, I’m sure that I’m not the only one who sees the irony in this. We saw a partial government shutdown a few months ago and for what? Nothing but an effort by Republicans to delay the implementation of Obamacare, which is profoundly unpopular with the American public and becoming more so. Polls indicate […]

Dear Editor, Perhaps the greatest temptation towards idolatry is to worship and serve self. Though few will admit idolizing self. We find that the evidence shows otherwise. As far back as Adam and Eve, we see that the human tendency is to desire to be our own god. And Satan’s tactics have not changed; he […]

Resident Discusses Military

To the editor, A recent headline of the Town Talk newspaper, 29 Nov. 2013. “Cuts could close commissaries”. The proclamation is the first shot over the bow, but only one of many affecting our U.S. Military. I wonder how this will affect Fort Polk, which is in the process of constructing a new multi-million dollar […]

Dear Editor, America became the “Miracle Country” because it offered its citizens complete freedom, and the ability to realize dreams they could only dream of in other countries. In other countries, leaders looked out for leaders, not their citizens. This Miracle Country was made possible by our constitution, and the fabulous amount of thought put […]

Obamacare is a Disaster

Dear Editor, Obamacare is NOT just a stinking website problem! That issue is a nit. An expensive nit for the taxpayer to be sure, an embarrassment, a disgrace, but something that can and will eventually work acceptably if not perfectly. The real problem with Obamacare is not the website, it’s Obamacare itself. It is destroying […]

Kerry is no Hero

Dear Editor, Wasn’t John Kerry considered a turncoat when he threw his ID tags over the White House fence during the Vietnam war? Now he is trying to appease Iran and enter into an agreement about nuclear arms manufacture while we sit and wonder what terms are being made. Veterans of the Vietnam War do […]

Letter Commended

Dear Editor, I would like to commend Mrs. Alice Roy’s article (published Sunday, Dec. 1, in the Jennings Daily News) on Houssiere’s Park. It certainly brings back many memories for those who can remember that far back. The park was a common place for families to picnic and ‘go fishing’ for a long time. At […]
