Kim comparison laughable

April 23, 2013 

Wow! That is what came to mind after reading the letter, "Kim Jong-Un like our far right" (April 15). The Second Amendment reads, in part, "…the right of the people to keep and bear arms…." Nowhere does it mention the right of the state.

For 237 years the Bill of Rights has spelled out rights that were granted to the people and now this letter writer has reinterpreted the meaning of that document to say that it doesn't really mean the people at all.

I have just two questions: First, where in the Constitution does the "separation of church and state" occur? Second, what specific law was introduced, passed by both houses of Congress and signed by the president, that legalized abortion? For the record, I don't attend church and believe that abortion should be safe, legal and rare.

Comparing right-wing neo-cons to a North Korean dictator is pretty much all the liberals have in their bag of arguments. They don't offer cogent arguments to support their specious claims and oftentimes resort to name calling because that is all they know how to do. It's sad, really.
