America’s War On Children was never more starkly portrayed than in Saturday’s (March 22) article on the hunt and capture of our local children. Most of us citizens are unaware that each of our kids has a price on his/her head — money collectable from the federal government according to administrators’ head count each morning.

Many of us have or have had a member of our family in the military. Some fought and died, and are dying today, in an effort to protect our country and the freedoms we so carelessly take for granted, or so it seems at times.

Roughly 2,200 California National Guard technicians have been furloughed during the federal government’s partial shutdown. However, none of those furloughed employees operate out of Lodi’s National Guard armory, according to a National Guard spokesman.

This year’s high school freshmen were barely walking when the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers fell and a plane crashed into the Pentagon 12 years ago today. Some middle schoolers weren’t even born yet.

For those of us who grew up during the Vietnam years — and especially for those who fought in the 20-year-long war — the prospect of possible United States involvement in the Syrian civil war is chilling. In my lifetime, the U.S. has been part of at least 10 armed conflicts, some of which, like Vietnam and Somalia, were poorly thought out and even more poorly executed.

The American people should be outraged at the liberal media — CBS, NBC, MSNBC — for letting 11 months go by without insisting that President Barack Obama tell the nation where he was the night of Sept. 11, 2012, when armed terrorists attacked the American Consulate in Benghazi. Obama has the audacity to refer to Benghazi as a “phony scandal.”

Beyond terrorism’s life and limb costs are the cold, hard dollar sums.

The Pentagon is lifting its ban on women serving in combat, opening hundreds of thousands of front-line positions and potentially elite commando jobs after generations of limits on their service, defense officials said Wednesday.

For half a dozen years, Marine veterans of Lodi have gathered on Nov. 10 to celebrate the birthday of the organization that changed each of their lives in turn.

I'm 88 years old, active in my church, and a woman. I'm also an enthusiastic supporter of President Obama, whom I believe will go down in history as a wise and pragmatic decision-maker in this volatile interdependent world. Even Henry Kissenger and Colin Powell, former Republican Secretaries of State, have agreed with his foreign policy of diplomacy and working in collaboration with allies.

Something was missing at the Republican National Convention earlier this year. Something, or perhaps someone.

With their heads bowed, 70 people listened to the wail of police sirens fade in and out, the noise slicing through the silence. The sirens represented all of the firefighters, police officers and volunteers who drove toward the World Trade Center when the towers collapsed on Sept. 11, 2001.

Family and friends sat stoically in Lodi court Thursday as they learned bail would be doubled to $100,000 for the store owner who shot a Lodi man in the shoulder as he was walking out without paying for a case of beer.

As we observe the one-year anniversary of the eradication of Osama bin Laden, one of history's more notorious and insidious human beings (term loosely assigned), I'm once again curious as to why the American people have not demanded more proof of his demise other than just a picture of the president and his closest advisors gathered around a monitor looking on in horror.

I want to balance the federal budget as much as anyone, but it is not going to happen if we elect the same bunch to Congress. The Congress (House of Representatives) by law is in charge of our tax money. Does the current Congress want to cut the budget? You decide.

Recently, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates proclaimed that taking U.S. soldiers out of Afghanistan too quickly would jeopardize the coalition's achievements made during the last 18 months. What achievements is Gates talking about?

The nine-year, seemingly interminable Iraq War ended with barely
a whimper, though it started with a "shock and awe" beginning. We
should celebrate this moment and be thankful that we no longer will
be sending our troops into a war that for the last nine years was
not truly our war, but a civil war between Sunni and Shiite

We will soon be hearing about the budget cuts proposed by the
congressional supercommittee (super in name only). Hopefully, the
massive sacred-cow military budget will finally be cut.

The 9/11 attacks were an inside job. Foreigners are innocent.
I'm sure that no one was so naive as to believe that Osama bin
Laden story, right?

Lodi is thousands of miles from the Twin Towers and the
Pentagon, and yet in one sense has been at Ground Zero before,
during and since Sept. 11, 2001.
