Urge them to do what's right

| Monday, Sept. 29, 2003

Dear Editor:

Having become extremely frustrated at the seemingly mindless descent into oblivion our country is taking under the present administration, I'm submitting this letter in the form of a four-part petition to be sent to our congressmen to urge them to do what's right.

Of immediate concern is the national scandal of President George Bush and his stooges at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) refusing to allow the airline pilots to carry guns on the airliners, even in the face of imminent terrorist threat of hijacking. Of course the president and his FAA cronies have no legal standing in view of the second amendment to our Constitution, conveniently ignored by them as usual. The only explanation for this is that we are deliberately being left open for another 9-11 type attack for inhumanly callous political reasons to facilitate the expansion of federal police-state powers, (constituting high treason, of course, by the officials involved).

At the present rate of so-called pilot gun training, it is projected that less than half the commercial pilots will be armed after 15 years at a cost of over $700 million! This is, of course, a delay amounting to criminal conspiracy as all it takes to arm our pilots is to simply tell them to bring their own guns to work and they will be armed immediately at no cost at all as professional pilots don't need formal gun training.

The deliberate disarming of the pilots since 9-11 and before (putting us at further risk for over two years) indicates a conspiracy deep in our government that congress should investigate and root out. Send this petition to your congressman:

= Arm the pilots now -- with their own guns -- they don't need training beyond inter-office memos, and it won't cost a

dime! -- Tell 'em if they got guns-- bring 'em (of course we know every swingin' pilot in the country has a gun). signed:

= Get US out of the U.N. (for obvious reasons) -- call 1-800-JBS-USA-1, (for free information packet) or see: www.getusout.org -- signed:

= Stop all foreign aid and intervention -- Fortress America is the answer. -- signed:

= Seal our borders (the terrorists are coming in!) -- signed:

Ed Nemechek,

Adelanto, Calif.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
