Congress and President Bush often do not see eye to eye, but does Washington need to be paralyzed as a result? Two recent dramas - a face-off over appropriations measures and Congress' failure to override the president's veto of children's health insurance legislation - bring that question into prominence. In the first instance, the president vetoed a series of water projects passed by Congress, only to see his veto resoundingly overridden in both the House and the Senate. He then vetoed another appropriations bill, and threatens more such actions in the future.

Dear Editor: I am disappointed that state Sen. Alice Kerr's opponent feels he can use me in a campaign to promote himself. I feel that he will not be successful on Tuesday and will most definitely lose in November. I support the Republican candidate for Congress on Tuesday - state Sen. Alice Kerr. Tom Buford State senator Nicholasville

Dear Editor, To your readers who believe the doctrine seperation of church and state is a lie - please read the First Admendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion... " How much further do you have to read? Scott Gibson Danville

Dear Editor, In response to Bob Martin's article dated July 22, I want to thank him for his pedagogic explanation (Democrat Oil, Inc.) of how rich oil CEOs survey their vast holdings, but forgive me if I fail to shed a tear for their dwindling options. He writes in his diatribe how the Democrats in Congress are blocking legislation for offshore drilling, but he fails to address how the White House blocks legislation on alternative energies and sustainability every chance it gets.

Usury! Sounds as somber as its meaning. Biblically, lending and borrowing though acceptable practices demand accountability. That said, why is our nation nearly $5 trillion more in debt than just a few years ago? Americans who survived the Depression view usury as ANY debt beyond basic needs. Tragically, many today simply ignore that fundamental economic tenet; Congress tops the list of guilty parties. On one hand, Washington would seem to agree with prudence - at least when it's imposed on the lending side.

Dear Editor, As a parent, my highest priority is the well-being of my two children. My husband and I work hard to give them the best future possible, and I do everything I can to make that future safe and secure. If something tragic were to happen to either of us, we are comforted knowing that our financial situation would not cause any additional suffering. Our life insurance plans guarantee protection at the time it would be needed most. Recent talk of a looming recession makes me worry that the next Congress will immediately have to find ways to fund its many campaign promises.

Dear Editor, Last year, the "Pacifist Liberal Socialist Party" (a.k.a. Democratic) was elected the majority party in the Congress. They elected Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) as majority leader and Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) as speaker of the House. If these two are an example of the leadership they will provide if one of them is elected president, then may God have mercy on these United States of America. Gil Russell Hustonville

July 19, 1958 Billy Rushford of the Clark County Future Farmers of America Chapter recently attended special interest classes at the F.F.A. Leadership Training Center at Hardinsburg. WASHINGTON (AP) - President Eisenhower is reported to have dropped a hint he may call a special fall session of Congress if he doesn't get all the foreign aid funds he thinks are needed to meet the recent crisis.

Dear Editor, I see all across the country people are leaving both the two major parties to become Independents. These are the true conservatives left. A true conservative, which I am, has no place in either party. They are both committed to a centralized government at home and imperialism abroad. One's only choice is to try and choose the lesser of two evils. A true conservative believes that not only should the Supreme Court go by the Constitution, but so should the president and the Congress and everyone else.

Dear Editor: As I read some of the comments from some of the readers, I see that they have no idea how this country is run. First of all, the House and Senate make the rules and spend the money in this country, not the president. The president can't do anything without their permission and their vote, yet he gets all the blame when something has gone wrong. Before you pass judgment on our president, check Congress to see who voted for anything that you think the president has done wrong.
