'Terrorists' in Congress

I have figured out how foreign "terrorists" have managed to finally bring down the United States of America. Super-PACs have spent millions to elect so-called conservatives to Congress. These "terrorists" will vote against anything that makes our country a better place. By using their votes, they will manage to do what terrorists have always hoped to do. Namely, bring down our country from within.

Losing kids to abortion

Your article on Jan. 14 about "State losing children" commented that "Changing behaviors and economic shifts are driving down the number of babies, but no one cause easily explains the trend." Duh! Could it be abortion? Because if it's the least bit inconvenient to have a child, no matter what the reason, the mother simply aborts him or her. Our young have been taught well. (Not!) They are completely nonchalant about it -- get pregnant, get an abortion. When are we going to see the truth? These are God's little loved ones, and he has a plan for all of them. And that plan does not include being snuffed out before they even see the light of day.
