• I do not support Trump for president


    The place — University College Hospital in London. The year, 2006. Alkexander Litvinenko a 44-year-old former officer in the Russian FSB, or secret services, was dying after being poisoned with 

  • Volunteers are the lifeblood of shelter

    In the Chronicle article, the ever-biased reporter Mike Wright quotes Tobey Phillips’ sarcastic comments about the volunteers being “open minded” towards the new director.

    All volunteers that I know are looking forward to the new director and eager to work with him to improve conditions at the shelter. They have “hung in there” through a chaotic transition caused by Tobey Phillips’ management decisions.

  • Editorial plumbs depth of pettiness

    The pseudo-liberals have once again exhibited their true colors.

    Ostentatiously, they beat the drums heralding the principles of our Republican government. They publicly advocate majority rule, which is vested in our constitutional rights.

    However, the pseudo liberals’ hypocrisy comes to the fore when the majority differs with liberal dogma.

  • Special personal memories of Palmer


    I started my career as an airline pilot working on the flight line at the Raleigh Municipal Airport in Raleigh, N.C.’ in the mid to late 1950s. Part of my job was to marshal airplanes (direct them to parking), chock the wheels and tie them down. 

  • Media not shy in Clinton’s corner


    RE: AP Fact Check article.

    You have to understand that the mainstream media are completely in the tank for Hillary. As I read through the article, I was particularly struck by the narrative under “Trump: President Barrack Obama ‘has doubled (the national debt) in almost eight years. When we have $20 trillion in debt, and our country is a mess.’ Under “The Facts,” the article does not say, “correct.” 

  • Proud of my forebears


    I am so proud of my great-great-grandfather Charles Carroll of Carrollton, Maryland (born 1737, died 1832), who at the age of 39, along with 55 other men, conceived the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. Grandfather brought his family to this new land to escape the dictatorial leadership of an organized, established Church of England reigned by King George. Although he was Catholic he did not believe in the Pope either having the authority of a dictatorial government.

  • Trump shows he’s not up for the fight


    I listened to every word spoken during the recent presidential debate, as well as comments from the debaters and pundits afterward. Nothing was said that night about microphone problems by either debater, members of the audience, members of liberal and conservative news media, by TV or streaming audiences, by tweeters, or by anybody.

  • Are we all losing our minds?


    Just wondering, if voting changed anything, would Congress make it illegal?

    When I was a boy, I was told that anybody could become president. With the current president and the presidential candidates, I now I believe it.

  • Can't compare Trump to Hitler

    There was a letter to the editor in Sunday’s Chronicle headlined “Political landscape frightening” that seemed to be a rant in opposition to Trump’s candidacy, albeit he was not named. While it was generally very well written, the writer went far afield in trying to make the point and ticked me off on several issues, especially the implication that Trump supporters would be supporting Nazi-like actions.

  • Trump would gut bank-fraud laws

    Recently, Sen. Elizabeth Warren asked both the Department of Justice and Securities and Exchange Commission to criminally investigate the CEO of Wells Fargo, John Stumpf, for the long-term practice of pressuring low-level employees to create over 2 million unwanted checking and credit- card accounts without consumers’ knowledge or permission in order to grow the bank’s stock price. After the scandal was exposed by grassroots advocates, the media and government regulators, the bank blamed 5,300 low-level employees acting independently.
