Trump least qualified to run our nation

In watching the first presidential debate I could not help but notice the contrast in the background and qualifications, the knowledge of current events and the issues facing our nation, and of the overall composure of the two candidates. Secretary Hillary...

Final word on gun violence debate

October 3, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Well, I’ve enjoyed this debate, and I’ve had my say, so this will be my final word on the subject, for a while at least. Mr. Boué is right, individuals do have a right to keep and “bear arms” (which is a military term, by the way) for the foreseeable...

I was pleased to see that Mr. Craig Abalos enjoyed my Second Amendment letter published in the RDR on Sept. 20. I would take this opportunity to further his enjoyment. In his RDR rebuttal letter to me of Sept. 28, Mr. Abalos remains insistent that the Second...

You’re a racist if you don’t believe policemen mistreat black people and aren’t upset when Trump says some illegal aliens are murderers and rapists. You’re sexist if you don’t want to pay for abortions and you fear homosexuals if you think it’s...

Questioning Hillary’s pneumonia diagnosis

September 24, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I’ve had pneumonia several times, so I’m questioning Hillary Clinton’s doctor’s diagnosis. I have never stumbled nor fallen. Mostly, I had a deep cough, fever, aches and pains, and congestion in my chest. Also, I was tired and weak. Usually I wound up...
