Disheartened by David Price, Gun Control, and Syrian Refugees

It is disheartening to hear our Congressman “For Life” David Price preach to us about gun control, about accepting Syrian refugees, and about the futility of prayer.

To add insult to injury, our new Attorney General Loretta Lynch warns us to watch what we say or else.

Excuse me, just a minute, can we wait until the bodies are buried in California before you start barking orders?

Leftists like David Price and Loretta Lynch have an uncanny talent for making Americans feel like foreigners in their own country.  I guess the plan is to have Syrians and Mexicans compete for livable wage jobs and affordable housing here in Chapel Hill.

Listen to Alan Culton’s Commentary

I was born here.  How come I get the feeling I am the one who is supposed to get in line for a temporary work visa?

David Price was a religion major.  He should know that this idea of compassion for Syrians is not based on any universally accepted ethos.

We live in a post-Christian America.  Planned Parenthood takes my tax dollars and men marry men.

Be careful here, I’m not making a judgement.  It’s only an observation.  But, if the Pilgrims could see us today, they would likely say, “Hey folks, you’re on your own.  At least we had a book.”

Besides, Chapel Hill is a secular municipality in a secular republic.  It is not a church.

Compassion for the world is not in our charter.  Immigration policy is far too important to be left in the hands of an egotistical, secular humanist like David Price, who has no authority to tell us what is and what is not compassionate.

Carrboro BoA To Petition US Action In Syria

CARRBORO – Led by Mayor Mark Chilton, the Carrboro Board of Aldermen approved a letter to Congress taking a stance against U.S. military action in Syria.

Chilton explained that the letter will be directed to North Carolina’s federal elected officials, including Congressman David Price (D-NC 4th District), as well as President Barack Obama.

Price said over the weekend that a “targeted, limited response” was merited, but he was not advocating entering into a war. Senator Kay Hagan said that the U.S. should find ways to prevent “atrocities” from happening again without putting Americans into ground combat.

“Different people on the Board have perhaps slightly different views on the situation in Syria and how to respond, but I think all of us are feeling that missile strikes or bombings would definitely be premature and not a good way to respond to this situation,” Chilton said.

The motion was proposed by Alderman Sammy Slade at Tuesday’s board meeting. Similar resolutions have been made by the Board of Alderman before, including a letter petitioning the U.S. entry into the Iraq War and another calling for U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.

On Saturday, about a dozen protesters gathered at the Carrboro Farmers’ Market, calling for the U.S. to avoid military action against Syria.

A Senate panel voted Wednesday to give Obama the authority to use military force against Syria in response to apparent use of chemical weapons. The full Senate is expected to vote on the measure next week.

The resolution would permit Obama to order a limited, 90 day maximum military mission against Syria, prohibiting the use of American troops on the ground for combat operations.
