Letters

  • Proud of Airboat Parade participants
  • Best tax proposal ever

    Thank you, Clay Savage, for your letter supporting the “Fair Tax” (Nov. 29). The Fair Tax is the best tax proposal I have ever seen. It eliminates so many wasteful aspects of our income-based tax system.

  • Thank you to letterwriters

    Thank you to Donald Schweitzer, ‘He will govern using Orwellian insanity’  and Wayne Logsdon’s ‘Time for Democrats to step up their game’ for their Dec. 7 letters to the Chronicle which were very informative, logical and enlightened essays. 

  • We could not be deterred

     

    It’s election day millions of Americans got up and stood in front of a voting machine.

    They stood there even though the media told them it was useless. They were fathers who have had a hard time feeding their families, they were daughters afraid of being murdered or raped by the unaccompanied minors flooding into their town.

    The Democrat blue wall crumbled, the impossible states fell one by one, Ohio, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania. 

  • What happened to Democrats of yore?

    Whatever happened to Hubert Humphrey? Whatever happened to Bob Kennedy? Whatever happened to John Kennedy? Whatever happened to Harry Truman?

    When the Democratic Party throws around names like Liz Warren and Keith Ellison for leadership positions, I wonder if they know how far away they are from what they used to be.

  • Bergdahl is a traitor, deserter

    U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is usually referred to by the news media as a “former prisoner of war”. The truth is that Bergdahl is nothing more than an “army deserter,” who also misbehaved before the enemy, after leaving his post in Afghanistan in 2009, thus putting in danger the lives of his fellow soldiers.

  • Time for Democrats to step up their game

    If the GOP campaign is any indication, the Trump presidency will be an alternate reality of post-truth, innuendo, impulsive behavior, flagging integrity, misguided actions, and constitution bashing. 

    As uninformed or uncaring as many voters seem to be, it should prove more so in the next 4 years as tweets and the internet may well become the major source for their political news and entertainment. This is truly scary and dangerous for us as a country. 

  • He will govern using Orwellian insanity

    In response to his recent choices for cabinet and staff, the media are claiming that Donald Trump is not ‘draining the swamp’ but is adding more of the same brand of alligators. In a range of TV interviews with various members of his staff, the following explanations for his reversals and generic reneging of campaign promises were offered to the world.

    ‘The media took Trump literally but not seriously, while his supporters took him seriously but not literally.’

  • A lesson in democracy

    A democracy is (1) “a government in which supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them or their elected representatives”, and/or (2) “any government that ultimately responds and answers to the will of the people it governs.”

    There are two basic types of democracy.
