Outraged over Deming proposal

Kudos to Margaret Jaeger for her recent letter concerning moving the Deming residents to the old Warren school. She hit the nail right on the head when she stated the Warren area has nothing to offer the residents as far as activities.

I can remember when the Deming was opened to the elderly and the big selling point was that it was right downtown and the people could walk the downtown and visit local stores and restaurants — which they do. My in-laws were one of the first to move there and they loved it.

She was also right as to transportation. How many are going to have to stand out in the cold just waiting for a ride?

Come on, Area Agency on Aging and senior population of Terre Haute. Are you not outraged?

If there was an article ever printed entertaining this thought, please print again, but this time I want to see every signature of the persons who voted for this.

These elderly have given their tax dollars to city, state and county for 50-plus years, many of which went to academia. This is how they are getting paid back?

Our elderly do not deserve getting warehoused in an out-of-the way place where there are no amenities for them.

Why Americans must fight Islam

In his book, “What Every American Needs to Know About the Quran: A History of Islam & the United States,” William J. Federer explains that Islam has a global conquest aspect to it. Federer writes:

“Americans love Arabs, Turks, Persians, Egyptians and Indonesians, but America has to resist the political/military system of Fundamental Islam. Why? Because it has a global conquest aspect to it and wherever Islam takes over, non-Muslims are not equal.”

Hence, America must fight Jihad and Sharia, which together constitute the political/military system of Fundamental Islam.
