After reading your inspiring article about Doctor David Hall, it carried me all the way back to August 13, 1977. You see, it was Dr. Hall who delivered my son with the same calmness, compassion and confidence that I noticed back then. My feelings and emotions were all over the delivery room, and with the reassurance of Dr. Hall, my wife had a very smooth delivery.
I don’t know if I blanked out or what; the next thing I remember Dr. Hall was asking me if I wanted to cut the umbilical cord. I thought that was the end of it, until someone on the staff said “smile.” I still have all of those cherished photos of Dr. Hall and the other great team of doctors who delivered my other two children.
Thank you Doctor Hall, you are the best.

Commenting on the “misconduct” of the VA scandals, Obama said he “would not stand for it, or tolerate it.” Oh, if the American public only felt the same way concerning Obama! Barack also said the VA scandals were “disgraceful and dishonorable.” That could well define his administration. The wait at our local VA has always been legendary.
Obama’s disregard for his oath of office and his disregard for our laws are indeed disgraceful and dishonorable enough, you might imagine him being from a foreign country. His autocratic dictatorial disregard for even his own laws have caused some to refer to him as “Osama Obama.”
His one accomplishment, if it could be called that, Obamacare, has been made up as it has gone along. It will be a worthless additional tax on the American people for nothing.
Another violation of U.S. law involves the trade of five dangerous terrorists for one “American” deserter. Obama has also released thousands of illegal aliens from prisons, failed to deport them, and refuses to secure our borders. He has done nothing for blacks or whites, preferring Hispanics instead for his favors.

I just watched a four-hour documentary on Hitler. I was amazed at his similarities with Obama. Hitler mesmerized his people, had them dancing in the street, having parades and eating lobster. Obama gives out free cellphones and piles on the food stamps. The only difference I can find is that Obama’s marbles aren’t big enough to take Canada and Mexico.
After six years, Obama’s agenda is clear. He likes people who hate this country while he hates people who like it. I guess he wants to destroy it, reinvent it, then have everybody singing Merle Haggard’s “Rainbow Stew.”
