ACA will save lives and another letter to the editors

ACA will save lives

March 31 was the last day to sign up for health care coverage on The website was part of a greater program under the Affordable Care Act, which was meant to provide health care to people. The main concern of this is people's pocketbooks. They fear their money will go to pay for the health care of citizens who cannot afford health care services. My question to those people is: Do they believe in the sanctity of life? It is true this will bring health care to people who could not afford it on their own, but as a good Christian, Muslim, Jew, or even an atheist, it is our duty to help others and make their lives better, no matter the detriment to our finances or any other concern. The fact that this will save lives outshines any other argument presented.

Crying out against sin

For you who would like for us to be silent, may I say that we will always cry out against sin. Don't read our letters if they offend you. I am offended by columnists who think it is cute to write about their family chronicles and publish them in our newspaper. Wasted space. But I don't read the newspaper anymore. I used to read it from cover to cover though.

PLEASE! LibDem, do not do that to Yourself. What's that universal interpretation of ASSUME? As much as I treasure The Chattanooga Times Free Press, I must say, there are myriads of other methods to become 'informed'. Must You make a 'Google-Enshrined' spectacle of Yourself by presuming there is no other avenue of becoming informed. For the sake of reputation, please initiate a 'suggest removal' for Your above comment. I happen to strongly believe You are much more astutely intelligent that what I see of You above.

'Someone' said, regarding the Chattanooga Times Free Press, " I used to read it from cover to cover though." Then, someone else stated the person who no longer reads the TFP has chosen to be 'uninformed'.

Perhaps it's Mr. Orr's religious gibberish that the reader finds uniformed.

When a supposedly grown man, with claims of knowledge, finds it necessary to spell Satan as sATAN in fear of a made-up enity, there is something seriously wrong, both in his reasoning and system of thoughts.

What demands such childish, immature behavior? Is that what your god teaches, fear of words? Who can you be taken seriously by anyone over six years old?

Ken Orr, the Rapture can't come soon enough for you and your self-righteous, arrogant ilk. I'm not a praying man but if I were I would pray to sweet Jeezus to hurry up and come on down and whisk you and your obnoxious holy-rolling brethren away ASAP ("suggest removal" in other words). I'll take may chances in hell with the heathens, thank you.

"Choose heaven for the climate, hell for the company." - Mark Twain

Just wondering....once you get to that eternal paradise, with all those other angelic spirits as righteous as you, what are you going to do with all that time on your hands and nobody to point out their sins to? Bummer, huh?
