To George W. Bush Commander in Chief of the United States of America and  his Republican followers:

I, George W. Bush, Commander in Chief, I make all the decisions and take full responsibility of action taken by the United States.

And to think that this war George W. Bush dreamed up is going into the fifth year.

Some of our bright media brags how well our forces are doing in Iraq.

If people would realize the Iraqis had nothing to fight with. United States went into Iraq with heavy artillery, tanks, armored vehicles and aircraft.

I get a kick out of the news media, Paul Harvey and Jack Kelly. Paul Harvey made the statement on radio 10/3/07 we are not using many planes in Iraq like they did in World War II. How ignorant can you get?

World War II we were fighting all over the world, and for a real good reason.

Some of Jack Kelly’s statements are disgusting. He is a Bush follower to the core.

I notice TV Republican senators cry you’re running down our troops if you say anything against the war in Iraq. These same senators are in office today, they are helping Bush run the country deeper and deeper in debt.

Baghdad was a beautiful city until we began bombing it. We caused the deaths of many of Iraq’s citizens and American military personnel. And it does not seem to be ending.

It has been a poor run war. Our enlisted personnel have to follow orders from the officers in charge. If they don’t follow orders they are in deep trouble. I am for our troops, but not for the Bush administration. The Republicans have used all kinds of lies that don’t hold the truth. It is a real mess.

Hiring caterers to supply food to our military personnel. Hiring outside help to protect our visiting official personnel in Iraq. Costs billions of dollars.

If we don’t have enough military personnel to perform these duties, we should stay to home and keep our nose out of other nations’ problems.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
