Shame on our government


COVINGTON, Ind. — Editor:

The federal government has brought us Fast and Furious, Benghazi, investigations of our press (AP & Rosen) National Labor Relation Board appointees that were ruled un-constitutional, a health care system that is going to lower premiums and if you like your doctor we keep our doctor. (While premiums have soared and one out three doctors are retiring because of it.)

Also, we’ve seen a refusal to prosecute Black Panthers for voter intimidation, whispers to Russian premiers, bowing to Saudi Kings, enormous handouts to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, an attorney general who openly states his desire to brainwash children but doesn’t know a thing about anything when asked by the oversight committee, a State Department that covers up ambassadors hiring of prostitutes, an IRS that targets people based on their political beliefs and a director of national intelligence that tells us he lies to Congress in the “least untruthful manner.”

The president, Mike Rogers, Peter King, Diane Feinstein and others have the audacity to ask America to trust them? Why?
