Keep editorials, columnists coming

  • Follow Letters

I have never written a comment to the paper before. I'm 82 years old and a widow.

I just felt strongly to write and tell you how much I like your editorials, and to say "thank you" for the columns written by Walter Williams and Cal Thomas.

They seem to love our country like I do.

I hope they will be able to continue.

Walter Williams and Cal

Walter Williams and Cal Thomas? Honest, facts only, libertarians? You extremist, racist. How dare you write to the paper!

They "seem" to love our country, eh" Well, what seems and what actually IS, is two different things. That single flaw will doom the country, because sending men/women off to die SEEMS like a leader, killing tens of thousands of innocent people while moaning/groaning about 911 SEEMS like "we are getting revenge" and politicians saying almost anything SEEMS like a democracy, but the sad true is: it is not.

WhippingPost, Fish Out of Water, justus4: I doubt that the three of you together total ages equal 82 years. Experience versus Idiots get my vote.

JUSTUS, as usual, you ignore
Unpublished

JUSTUS, as usual, you ignore that fact that your man is in charge now and has the power to order men and women in harm's way out of harm's way. Instead, he's ordered 5000 more troops to Afghanistan and is considering ordering more there. I've been to Afghanistan. It's as close to Hell as anybody would want to be. As for politicians saying almost anything, again, your party, the Dems, own the White House and both houses of congress, including a fillibuster free senate. This administration has doubled our nation's debt in his first 6 months in office, and this congress went along with it like a bull with a ring through his nose. Given those facts, tell me JUSTUS, just how are Conservatives responsible for the current mess we're facing now?

Just wait until you are 82

Just wait until you are 82 years old and if you still have bit of your small brain you will understand why someone who has experienced WWII, Korean Conflict, Vietnam, Operation Desert Storm, Iraq and now Afghanistan feels about our great Country. Someone who has lost friends and relatives in all of the above, has gone through a real depression, had to use ration stamps to buy shoes, and more and still is true to the things that made our country so great is to be admired. By the way, I am 84. I also understood the sarcasm.

We can learn a lot from the

We can learn a lot from the WWII generation. We just lost a great one in Col. Ken Facey. We need to soak up what you know and stay teachable because we might have to deal with our own depression and World War.
