Economic systems aren’t that pure

May 28, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Mr. William Dawe’s letter to the editor (May 27) clearly illustrates the current political crisis in our country. That crisis is being precipitated by the inability of some to recognize and understand the nuances of power and how they influence our basic social institutions. Dawe’s polemic argument about what constitutes “socialism,” like all such...

Trump would get Mattie Ross’ vote

May 28, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

If you work for someone, you’ll eat crap sometimes. This is universally true, whether the job is in the private or public sector, but it used to be worse. If you were a slave, you were someone’s property and not a person who worked for wages. If you owed...

Columnist brave to speak of his addiction

May 27, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I applaud Tim Howsare for the courage to write his valorous article “Sobriety: My lifelong promise to God.” Mr. Howsare brilliantly reveals his depths of self-doubt and despair before and during his commitment to forgo his addiction to alcohol, and the...

Jews and others on the wrong side

May 27, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

In response to the letters from Rabbi David Fox (May 25) and Russell Scott (May 26), no one is advocating anti-semitism. It’s about presenting clear facts to determine truth and expose fraud. The Jews are most to be pitied not persecuted. They had the...

Many reasons for teacher shortage

May 27, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

So, Superintendent Tom Burris has no idea why there’s a teacher shortage? Allow me to enlighten you Mr. Burris: 1. Teacher education programs are lame. Pedagogy courses are ultra-liberal, ultra-politically correct discussion groups disguised as actual...

More happy stories needed in the RDR

May 26, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I am not part of this group but called them about a hoarding situation here in Hagerman. They rushed out and so far took about 16 puppies stuck in wire cages and crates. The pictures of the group bathing and dipping are heartwarming and amazing. Why don’t...

Socialists inept when running government

May 26, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

If I may enlighten some misguided writers to the editor, who continually promotes the concept of Socialism, the countries of Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Germany are NOT Socialist countries. They are all Parliamentary Democracies with a multitude of parties....

Modern Israel fulfills prophecy

May 25, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

A letter in the May 15 RDR (“Israel’s founding not based on God”) had some misunderstanding of the role of modern Israel. It is certainly true that today’s Israel was founded as a secular state, but it is a fulfillment of prophecy. Ezekiel 38:14...

Headline erroneous, ‘overload’ not true

May 25, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Who writes your headlines? In the May 25 paper, a guest editorial from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch was headlined “Voters face information overload.” The editorial was about the need to label food with genetically modified ingredients so that consumers,...

Rich have socialism, so why not everyone?

May 24, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I read with some interest Ralph Rivera’s and William Dawes’ letters to the editor and I must say I disagree. They denigrate socialism and use Venezuela as a punching bag. That nation has had deep political and economic problems for many years and is still...
