OPINIONS (From Page 6)
Letters Bush was a
jokester, too Editor:
West Valley View, a couple of your readers wrote in to express dismay and anger about President Obama going around the country appear- ing on various television shows and, overall, making jokes while we have a bad economy and while our troops are in harm’s way. I can fully relate to their anguish and pain because I felt the very same way when watching then-President Bush at a Correspondents Dinner in Washington DC present a fake slide show in which he appeared wandering about the White House looking for weapons of mass destruction. His basic “joke” prem- ise was that there were no WMD’s under the sofa cushions or behind his desk. What should dismay and anger Americans the most is that there were also no WMD’s in Iraq. When President Bush left offi ce in 2009 he probably took with him his slide show but he certainly left President Obama with the Iraq War and Osama bin Laden on the loose. What is the current status of the Iraq War and the terrorist leader who planned the 9/11 attacks?

misleading facts Editor: It’s unbelievable that anyone
would think that 353 MIL- In the May 8, 2012 edition of the
LION loss of our tax dollars in the Soylndra fi asco is ok! AND THERE ARE MORE! Let’s not forget that the Department of E nergy brazenly approved 2 additional loans for more than $1 BILLION for solar energy projects in the Obama Adminis- tration’s green jobs program. The latest ill-fated ve ntures include a $737 million loan guarantee to Solar Reserve for a 110-mega- watt solar tower on federal land in Nevada (wink wink Harry Reid) and a $337 million guarantee for Mesquite Solar 1 to develop a 150-megawatt solar plant in Arizona. Another great example of the misleading fact from the LEFT; YES the Bush administration did look at the Soylndra loan. However during the latter days of the George W. Bush ’s administration, the Credit Committee voted UNANI- MOUSLY “NOT TO ENGAGE in further discussions with Solyndra.” Less than 3 months later, after Obama took offi ce, the loan guaran- tee was approved. This Administration is NOT about doing what is BEST for the nation but rather how to help THEMSELVES and those that play the game with them. WHERE IS THE BUDGET ?!
This Administration had control of the HILL for 2 FULL YEARS and still did not produce a budget and their policies have been a complete failure! Let’s hope that the NEXT adminis- tration can produce a budget, reduce the debt, rid the fraud and the abuse in our programs and lead us to real independence of oil and gas while seeking alternative fuels by putting their country fi rst before their own self-righteous egos.

by new law Editor: I was disappointed that Gov- ernor Brewer signed into law a bill that bans state funding from Planned Parenthood. This organization has saved lives and measurably reduced suffering of thousands of women, as well as providing affordable, responsible contraception to many more. I have known women who
have decided to have an abortion. Not one of them took the deci- sion lightly nor found it easy to do. I would like to see abortions become rare and not be done as routine birth control. The best way to accomplish this is to make contraceptive choices accessible. Planned Parenthood does that. The amount of their practice that involves abortions is miniscule compared to the contributions that
they make for women’s health and family planning. Women should have the right
to make health decisions pri- vately in consultation with their physicians. The state should not interfere with the ways in which these decisions are made indi-
vidually. We should, as a society, support organizations that foster health. Supporting Planned Parenthood, among other things, can have a positive effect on our country’s health care costs.
