Subject: Prayer Rally At Porterville City Hall
Dear Editor, I am Steve Walker, pastor at Valley Oak Community Church and chaplain for the Porterville Police and Fire Departments. As you are all aware of the events that have taken place in our communities locally as well as across the nation we are a people in need of Gods heart infusing the hearts of people all around. So with that in mind I would like to ask you, your staff, your congregations, your friends and anyone else who has a heart to see peace and order to gather tonight in front of City Hall for a Prayer Rally at 6:00 pm. This will be a time of showing support for our First Responders, City Leaders and our community through praying together.
Respectfully ... Pastor Steve Walker : From Valley Oak Community Church, Porterville, CA.

Subject: Porterville City Council M.I.A.
Dear Editor, Tuesday May 19th, hundreds of people showed up in front of City Hall to protest the Governors stay-at-home order as well as the Porterville City Councils lack of support for suffering small businesses within the City limits. The City was notified in advance about the protest and the Porterville Recorder ran a front-page story about the protest several days in advance. Protestors were in front of City Hall for nearly 2 hours. How many current City Council members came out to speak with the protestors about their concerns? That number was exactly ZERO !!!

Subject: Planned Protest at Porterville City Hall
Dear Editor, There is a planned protest in front of Portervilles City Hall on Tuesday May 19th @ noon. The issue is Porterville City Halls lack of support for local business. You are starting to see many cities in California (Visalia as an example) start to pass ordinances saying that ALL BUSINESS IS ESSENTIAL !!! We expect Porterville to do the same. The Governors order is not only Unconstitutional but unfair. He is basically saying who gets to eat and who starves.

Dear Editor, As I was in prayer this week an old hymn came to mind and my heart was stirred as I realized the profound message is still so relevant today during these unprecedented and challenging times. The hymn is entitled, In Times Like These. It was written in 1944 during perils times during World War II by Kye Fleming and Dennis Morgan. Today, we are waging yet another world war with a contagious disease, COVID-19. Yet as we experience what is happening around the world, we need to pause and take time each day to embrace the powerful and reassuring message of this hymn and many others like it.

Dear Editor, A few days ago, my wife and I stopped into Burger King for lunch. We ordered and enjoyed our combo meal. When I went back for a Coke refill, I happened to look at the cup itself. After a few moments of looking at the entire black with red cup, it was easy to see that there was a red flaming hand that occupied at least half of one side. Then, printed at the bottom of one side, was this: BKURSED. I love anagrams and puzzles but couldn't arrive to any conclusion other than "Burger King...something somthing". So ...

Dear Editor, No one can deny that after a human being is conceived it will develop into the very same being as those debating this issue. What astounds me is that those who favor abortion went through an identical development stage as the being they are condemning to death. Would these very same people agree that a similar choice should have been made about their own existence? How many human lives have been lost that could have added to our society in so many ways?

Dear Editor, This is an interesting "Farewell to England" list of Islamic accomplishments in that country that I thought might give you a better understanding of the insidiousness of Hijrah; that's the takeover of a nation without going to war. Don't think for a moment that America is not a target or that there are no American cities where Islamic and Sharia victories and takeovers have already occurred. It's time for border control, or start planning for a very big goodbye America party ! Here's what has already happened to England within a few years of opening their borders without entry control.

Subject: Seats Stolen by Illegally Voting
Dear Editor, Since many Americans keep saying that many voters voted illegally during the 2018 midterm elections, I decided to do some research on my own states new laws that were allegedly created to help more US citizens vote in my home state of California. The two laws I decided to research and study were written and passed in 2013 and 2015 during the Obama Administrations era and current Democrat controlled California legislature and Governor Browns era. Although these law were allegedly written to make it easier for US citizens to vote in California, I found that these two laws were written to purposely work in tandem to basically, from what I gathered during my research, evidently ignore and circumvent Federal guidelines and laws that control the issuing of United States drivers licenses and protect the integrity of American elections.

Dear Editor, As a life-long registered voter it is my hope that the citizens of the United States will make the effort to vote in what many consider to be perhaps the most important election in the history of this country. Just as with my fellow countrypersons I am not satisfied with the direction our nation is going specifically when it comes to healthcare {pre-existing conditions}, the economy {stagnant wages}, immigration {bias}. education {teacher pensions} and gun regulation {AR-15 and bump stocks}. We as a society have also seen a rise in sexual harassment and abuse as well as hate of African Americans, Hispanics and Jews. Thanks ... Joe Bialek : From Cleveland, OH.

Subject: President Trump's Authority Over Immigration
Dear Editor, One of the main reasons Donald Trump was elected as POTUS was his promise to solve our immigration problem. His biggest test is coming with the herd of illegal immigrants that is on the way to our Southern border. Few people are aware that prior to WWll the primary duty of the US Army was to guard our Southern border. Today we have 1,094,456 troops stationed in the contiguous USA and 20,000 in Alaska with none of them assigned to our border.

Dear Editor, This letter is in response to the articles covering the sexual harassment allegations made against men in the media and government throughout the United States. To all males living in this country I issue a collective statement: enough already! Who are you to impose your sexual desires on someone because they did not give you their consent? Once again we are witnessing those in authority positions taking advantage of the situation. Resignation is the least you can do. Prosecution is the best we can do...and we will. Thanks ...

I say build a pipeline from Alaska to Texas but not for oil for water. One more thing everybody is talking about is global warming caused by people or nature it doesn't matter the glaciers are melting. All this clean fresh water is just running into the seas or oceans.

You will see why when you read it. This has been around before but it appears to be something that we should review again. McCarran-Walter Act Of 1952 Oh, By the Way ...

Subject: Electoral College
Dear Editor, The framers of the US Constitution created the Electoral College as a result of a compromise for the presidential election process. During the debate, some delegates felt that a direct popular election would lead to the election of each states favorite son and none would emerge with sufficient popular majority to govern the country. Other delegates felt that giving Congress the power to select the president would deny the people their right to choose. After all, the people voted for their representatives to the federal legislature. The compromise was to set up an Electoral College system that allowed voters to vote for electors, who would then cast their votes for candidates, a system described in Article II, section 1 of the Constitution.

Dear Editor, Generally, I am a quiet, rarely out-spoken individual but this national election is truly significant. I seriously doubt that I have clout to persuade any other voter but it is worth a try. Early on, in the last presidential election, I decided that I wanted Newt Gingrich for my candidate, for he had already had experience, twice, in balancing the budget. He had served in Washington; therefore, knew what the pressures, private-interest groups might be, and still was willing to carry the responsibility. With his background in American history, he could have well-served these past four years. Thanks ... Glenda S. Mead : From Porterville, CA.

Dear Editor, I decided to write this legal type post because I am tired of seeing women accusers and the Left Wing Media passing off Gossip as facts to sway America's voters by telling tall tales about sexual in counters where allegedly Mr. Trump sexually attacked these women, or walked in on them while they were dressing. To prove these stories have no legitimacy and are mere gossip pieces that belong on puff shows like Wendy and the View, I am going to fill you in on the legal conduct needed to determine a controversy of this sort, or any case in a US COURT. First of all, if these gossip pieces had any merit, Mr. Trump would have been arrested by now, and have been disqualified by law from his candidacy by America's suffrage Laws. Thanks ...

Dear Editor, Senate Bill 1146 is designed to force all "Christian" Universities in the State of California into changing their education standards, so that no student will be required to take any courses that require them to read the Bible or go to the school's Chapel. This Bill also hinders the schools ability to make decisions on admission. The schools would have to adhere to a politically correct admission policy. They could no longer consider the morality (or lack there of) of a student when deciding upon admittance. Thanks ... Rev. Benjamin V. F. Brown : From outside of Porterville, CA.

Dear Editor, The FBI wants Apple to open a truck sized door into their Apple systems so that the FBI (and by proxy anyone else) can go in and snoop into anybodys encrypted - private communications. Encryption is for privacy. Encryption used to be the exclusive purview of government agencies to keep secrets from people. Increasingly, people are fearful of a government who goes snooping into their private affairs and violating their Fourth Amendment rights without a court order or a court hearing, just for shits and giggles, a violation of the First Amendment. Ignoring a judges order, Apple has told the FBI to shove it. I stand with Apple. Thanks ... Jim Horn : From outside of Porterville, CA.

They aren't God. That's why Presidents have advisors. A Cabinet. Intelligence agencies. Briefings. Oh yeah, Obama opts out of these. Presidents consult people, unlike Obama who mistakenly thinks he's omniscient. Like you said, he racks up plenty of experience on the golf course, but has no knowledge of how to unify America.

Millions of Mexicans had worked under the program which provided laborers, primarily in the agricultural sector. When the program ended, there was nothing to replace it, and chaos began.

Dear Editor, I like to let your readers in on an interesting debate concerning Measure B and whether general funds can be used for building repairs as opposed to asking for another $67 million dollar bond. First I am told by PUSD board member Dave DePaoli that PUSD can absolutely use general funds for repairs the district claims they need. Mr. DePaoli says that putting 5% of the general budget towards building projects is completely attainable and can be done without asking tax payers for any additional money.

Dear Editor, An open letter to the US Supreme Court, RE: proposed legal rights for those that practice homosexual sex. Honorable US Supreme Court Justices, "Homosexual civil rights" is an oxymoron. Popular support and practice of homosexuality puts humans on the endangered species list. Homosexuality is the ultimate anti-civil behavior since homo + homo = 0 +/- HIV AIDS! Those that practice homosexuality already have the right to be civil just as they have the right to choose homosexual sex, which is non-compulsory in that one can choose to abstain from sexual relations just as one can choose what kind of sex to engage in and with whom or what within the law; (children never an option).

Dear Editor, Today, a Corporatist Supreme Court joined a Corporatist President and Congress in transferring an enormous power that would appall the likes of Washington, Jefferson and Franklin. With the Supreme Courts codification that the Central Government plutocracy in Washington can compel citizens to purchase anything it deems appropriate, which benefits its corporate benefactors, our so called "Republic" today officially exceeded its intent. The great question is do "Americans" have the character of the likes of Washington, Jefferson and Franklin to do something real about the tyranny that rules us today in 2012, that is far worse than that of George III in 1776.

Dear Editor, I wish to take the opportunity to answer the questions you "wish you could have asked" this week's candidate forum. First let me correct you, Monday's Forum was the second Forum, the first being hosted by the Porterville Area Republican Assembly. A forum, ignored by the Recorder. A major disappointment with the joint Recorder-KTIP-Chamber forum was the lack of dynamic questions that reflect real issues. Many of the questions asked were the same questions asked in 2010.

You are quick to try and dismiss a potential win as some sort of fluke, or owing to Independents registering to vote for him.

Further, it appears to me, that "certain conditions/circumstances" has been created in our Country.; and it also appears to me that these are manifesting themselves as scare tactics that would serve as a precursor to accomplish predisposed Government sanctions to be ultimately imposed on the American people.

Dear Editor -- The events of 2009 are a chapter in our history. What is of greater importance is what the chapter we write in 2010 will contain. The pending elections might be the most important in the history of this republic. This is how I see it. If the people of this country, through our election process, do not elect people who honor the Constitution and are committed to govern by it our days are numbered. The current administration is openly opposed to the form of government our Founders' intended. The founders believed government should be limited, balanced, and with carefully delegated powers.

Subject: The Citizens Power Campaign
Dear Editor -- The purpose of this letter is to provide your readers with some information about the "Citizens Power Campaign" that is sweeping across California. This campaign is aimed at stopping the corrupt political machine made up of Public Employee Unions and Sacramento politicians. The Public Employee Unions are the strongest and most active special interest group in Sacramento. These unions and our elected representatives in Sacramento are bankrupting the state. The game is rigged and the taxpayers are footing the bill. Al Watts -- trebla@pvilleca.com from Porterville Area

Dear Editor -- I appreciate the opportunity to submit a letter to the editor to clarify to readers the information about events and votes on water legislation that has major economic repercussions for the entire Central Valley. I have attached a copy of a recent guest editorial that Congressman Costa has distributed in the Central Valley questioning my public comments concerning his voting record that he continues to distort. I live in an area that has waited for some positive news the five times came up last year in a Roll Call Vote to Turn On the Pumps, hoping it would pass to restore our water deliveries. Instead it was discouraging and disappointing to learn that our own Congressman, Jim Costa repeatedly voted against turning the pumps on.

Dear Editor -- Recently a Ms. Giddings wrote a letter which focused on her dislike of the Tea Party movement and the people involved in it. As I read the letter I could not help thinking how angry she seemed. She sounded like one of " those" people Nancy Palosi was talking about. Then I realized , it's probably just the coffee. Many of the facts in her letter were wrong, and she misrepresented what the Tea Party mission is. Being involved in this movement I feel compelled to respond.

Dear Sir, I am e-mailing you from Barcelona, Spain because I want Americans to know that ... many women have abortions induced by harassment and threats from their partners. However, to have their babies is less harmful for their conscience and their daily lives. According to the publication Public Health and the Semergen-06 consultation, the first cause of death in women between 30 and 34 years old is suicide caused by having had an abortion and this figure triplicates their rate of suicide. At the same time, female sexual dysfunctions may increase to 182% when compared with women who have never had an abortion and also suffer abuse from their partners.

Dear Editor, I am writing you today because I am concerned with the Governors proposal of Summary Parole. This should be called No parole. This is because Summary Parole is a sham. In the proposal, it states that a person who is on Summary Parole can only be violated if they are convicted of a new felony. This makes no sense. You are not going to violate a parolee if they receive a new prison term. Why would you, they are already going to prison. This means you can't violate an individual on Summary Parolee for gang association, possession of a knife with a blade over two inches, contacting their crime victims, for drinking alcohol if they have been convicted for multiple DUI's and other technical violations which control a parolees conduct while in the community.

I saw him built the whole car from scratch i would tell you what the brand is but he has never told me. But we call it frankie short for frankenstein. Well if you need more info about the making of the car i will tell you more. Hope to hear from you soon. If you need to give me a call please call this number (661) ***-**** -Ramiro
