To the Editor:

Per Chuck Nissley’s letter (TDT 8/4), his attempt to guilt-trip citizens into drinking the Kool-aide failed.

He stated, “America is about ideals and goals for a better future…”  I am not sure Chuck’s version of America’s ideals and goals for a better future are the same as moral Americans.

How can Nissley insinuate non-vaccinated Americans don’t care about others when projections reveal that 1.8 million illegal immigrants are expected to cross the U.S.-Mexico border this year – many who are infected - and bussed into U.S. interior?

I’m going to tell Nissley like DeSantis told Biden, “I don’t want to hear a blip about Covid from you.”

Nissley also stated, “ a part of the future, not a body in the ground.”  Too bad innocent, defenseless infants won’t grow up to be a part of the future he speaks of.  Many don’t even get the dignity of being a body in the ground either.

Now we read his government gave the University of Pittsburgh at least $2.7 million in federal tax dollars over the past five years to become a ‘tissue hub’ for aborted baby body parts for scientific research.  The more you investigate the details and the racial quota they sought for minority babies makes you want to vomit.

Nissley ends his manifesto with, “Be an American who cares about the country and all the people in it. Take the shot and save a life.”

If you want to watch good Americans dig in their heels, bully and insult them.

Per Chuck Nissley’s letter (KDH 8/8); his attempt to guilt-trip citizens into drinking the Kool-aide fails again.

He asserts to wrong crowd, “America should never represent man’s inhumanity to man.”

"Hello, Hello, anybody home? Hey, think, McFly, think!"

Nissley needs to get his head out of his aspirations of being The Great Inspirer for humanity and keep up with events of the inhumane conditions created by Joe Biden.

The inhumanity created by Biden is starting to resemble the internment camps of 1942 in America. There’s a huge difference in the purpose, but conditions of being caged are parallel. 

210,000 illegal immigrants at the U.S.-Mexico border in July (the second highest in history) has led to a human disaster at multiple crossing points.  Photos show thousands of migrants shoved under bridges in 100-degree heat, cages full of illegal immigrants, and disgusting bathroom facilities.  1.8 million illegal immigrants are expected to enter the U.S. this year – many who are infected and bussed into U.S. interior?

Nissley needs to take his bullhorn, go in front of the true Super-Spreaders who are responsible of endangering Americans and illegals lives and cry me a river.

Why doesn’t Biden go visit these inhumane disaster areas he created? Is he a racist? I believe so. I believe he is using the plight of Latinos and others as political pawns. He certainly is a master at using the race card to his advantage when his track record is chocked full of racial stupidity that has come out from within him.

Nissley ends his letter with, “Be an American who cares about the country and all the people in it. Take the shot and save a life.”

Like DeSantis recently told Biden, I say to Nissley, “I don’t want to hear a blip about Covid from you.”

Get ready to open up your wallets Belton. With recent articles hinting on Belton's budget shortfall, you can expect to hand over more due to poor finance-keeping by your local government.  You can bet they are concocting ways to make-up that shortfall too.

When homeowner's budgets don't add up, do they go and force their neighbors to hand over their money? Do they go further into debt by borrowing more?  Or do they start seeking areas where they could cut spending? Belton should be responsible and start cutting back, starting at the top with the city manager’s bonuses added his to six-figure salary. 

Sam Listi's friend, Brandon Bozon, may smile and say “We have an almost balanced budget,” but it is nothing to smile about and reflects poorly on his lack of intelligence. It may be funny to them, but it’s no laughing matter.

And then you have the same boring and tiring city council inviting citizens to discuss taxes. Ever wonder why the room is empty? Citizens know that any objection or idea is futile with those people. Had any staff gave them an earful, they'd probably been retaliated against and out of a job, so it’s best they sit quietly.

Since Sam Listi was run out of Temple and hired by Belton's city council, southwest annexed citizens have seen nothing in vast improvements and quality for their tax increases. The revenue generated is merely redistributed where city council members live and have vested economic interests. It’s legal theft.

Belton Texas Street Sweeper - letter to editor that KDH and TDT would not publish

To The Editor:

On 7/23 Temple Daily reporter, Mr. Sanchez wrote and article on Belton’s drainage fee increase for a street-sweeper.  The article read more like it was promoting or justifying costs.

The writer created a fictitious story about the street-sweeper named, "The Beast," however, it was more like The Wizard of Oz, complete with winged monkeys and OZ, who is eventually revealed as nothing but a conman.

When the drainage fee was first introduced, the mayor and career council members claimed the fees were an effort to keep rivers/creeks clean.  Evidence of that claim can be seen on signage beside Nolan Creek that is annually laden with the same bacteria that can be found in feces.

More evidence is that Belton officials in the past have blamed cities west of us for the dirty creek. I guess that means they need to raise their drainage fees and purchase street sweepers as well.

The council’s assertion that storm drainage would be clogged without a street sweeper is inaccurate.  Many areas the council greedily grabbed via annexation have never had problems the mayor would like you to believe.

Taxpayers in southwest Belton, like Village Hill, have only seen the nearly $150k street sweeper twice since annexation. The first time was in 2009 and this year after I complained about city again being out of compliance with their own grass ordinance and street maintenance needed.

I would like Mayor Marion Grayson to prove her comments that annexed area drainage is cleaner because of the street-sweeper. In fact, provide figures of how many times the sweeper has visited the areas. I bet we could count them on one hand.

This street-sweeper is just an excuse to get more. If they were serious about their primary goal, they would enforce the laws. Fine landscaping companies who blow debris into the street (i.e. as witnessed when Main Street FBC does its landscaping).

The drainage fund should be used to replace curbs made from a pile of tar that the city installed in south Belton areas with real curbs. They should stop squandering funds like they did by purchasing water drop costumes for Halloween.

Belton Police Chief Protects His Dirt Bag Officer Anthony Adame #224

Letter to Editor that KDH and TDT would not publish

To The Editor:

On 5-19-15, Belton cop, Anthony Adame #224 went overboard in his authority during a routine traffic stop. Statute of limitations expired last week after trying to hold him accountable for creating $3,810 in damages.

Video and photos can be seen here:

Anthony Adame began falsely accusing the driver who has no criminal record and is employed:

“The center console is where he usually – where the weed is normally stored;”

“I’m just seeing if there is a big bundle in there, but that’s where you keep it at;”

“That’s where it (weed) was at, sitting on top.”

After 40min and no weed found, Adame says, “I have the hinkering that you may be selling it;” “I didn’t find nothing – you probably sold it, that’s why you probably have that cash on you; ” “I bet if we looked at your cell phone you probably talk about fucking selling green and smoking and all that other shit.

Adame tells him, “You stick out like a sore thumb coming out of Bell Oaks.”

It sure wasn’t the 1995 Seville that needs a paint job that sticks out in that low-income neighborhood. Is it because the driver looks Caucasian in an area that is majority African American? We call that racial profiling, Adame.

Adame is then heard saying “I’m not accusing you…” then as the driver leaves, the video continues and Adame is heard saying, “That is dope money, all them fives and tens, and didn’t stop there, he had about two-hundred in twenties – he just dropped-off at Bell Oaks and now all that weed is over there now.”

Most disturbing of all is that Chief Gene Ellis invited the driver to come to department to discuss, but after Killeen LULAC, NAACP and media is CC’d, the chief no longer wanted to meet.
