MERIDIAN — Thanks for your support

    I would like to thank Phi Delta Kappa fraternity for their community service.  On the 13 of September 2013 they had a benefit for Mr. Larry Ulmer (Larry D) a retired captain of the Meridian Fire Department who was injured in an accident.  Raising needed money to pay for some of his medical bills, that very same weekend they also donated money to the Dylan Mabry memorial fund to help the family with medical and burial expenses.  Seeing everyone coming together for a common good, Making Meridian a better place to live.

The debt  ceiling and Obamacare

    In 2006, Senator Barack  Hussein Obama stated that raising the debt ceiling would be irresponsible and un-patriotic and would have a detrimental effect on our future generations. The debt ceiling at that time was $8 trillion.Now in 2013, he is wanting to increase the debt ceiling upwards of $17 trillion. He says this is necessary and it is the right thing to do. Was he lying when he made his statement in 2006 or is he lying now? You be the judge ...

    The House of Representatives voted recently to continue funding the government through Dec. 15: but also voted to defund the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) due to the fact that businesses are now hiring people to work less than 40 hours a week and a lot of businesses are simply cutting down their work force. Insurance rates have skyrocketed and that more than 50 percent of the American citizens do not want this legislation at all. Having said this: President Barack Hussein Obama has already said he will veto this House of Representative's Resolution and as a consequence, the government will be shut down. There is no doubt that he will not accept the responsibility for his veto shutting the government down but will place all the blame on the Republicans.  (George Bush will not work anymore!) When your welfare checks stop and your disability checks stop next month; remember it was President Barack Hussein Obama who really caused you not to get a check next month.

    Respectively submitted,

    Jim Knowles
