Letters to the Editor

Blame the capitalists

To the editor: A recent letter is a fine example of the notion that sufficiently strong and sincere belief somehow can automatically turn any idea whatever into concrete truth! The writer spoke of “Democratic Cities;” sounds to me like a Socialistic proposal of some sort. The fact of ...

God and country

To the editor: I am very confused about how the education systems and political parties have been able to get God out of schools, prayers and so on! The Democrats have been responsible for these changes. Democracy is the greatest concept for a country; socialism and communism have not ...

Count your blessings

To the editor: All across this great country, this holiday season Americans have celebrated the dearly won gift of freedom with the family and friends we are blessed to share it with. This tradition of gratitude is woven into the very fabric of our nation. As many families grapple with the ...

One last word

To the editor: W. Edwards Deming, the world renowned management consultant, succently stated: “In God We Trust, all others must bring data.” To his point, the data are:  Electoral College totals for the 2020 Presidential Election: Joe Biden 306, Donald Trump 232.  Popular vote: ...

America’s greatest president

To the editor: Operation Warp Speed: Another spectacular accomplishment by President Trump. The development and distribution of the “covid”' destroyer, scheduled for delivery before the end of the year, ranks high on the list of President Trump’s amazing achievements. What before ...
