Anti-Trump statements ridiculous

To the editor,

You published a letter titled, “Trump is a Symptom” in your letters section.

The entire letter was based on the second paragraph, “we all know what Donald Trump is — a liar and bigot who ignores the law and the constitution.”

Unfortunately, we don’t all know this and this liberal-socialist, Democrat seems incapable of coming up with any logic or any facts to support this outrageous statement.

This writer has never met Donald Trump nor does he know anyone who knows Donald Trump. He has absolutely zero first — or second — hand information to support his ridiculous claim. He is simply asserting an outrageous insult on the President of the United States. For this writer, it is obvious that his “elevator does not quite go all the way up.”

Since his basic statement makes absolutely no sense whatsoever then his entire letter is nothing more than a vacuous diatribe. He should be deeply ashamed that he has insulted an American President based on false witness.

Are these liberal-socialist Donald Trump-haters incapable of even basic third-grade research? Has the limited-literate ever heard of “bearing false witness?” Surely he had someone with at least a second-grade education read his idiotic diatribe before he posted it?

This writer should be deeply ashamed of a moronic and mostly illiterate letter insulting the President of the United States.

Teacher protests detract from professionalism

When I think of a professional, I think of someone who invested their time and money for additional education to become a respected expert in their field of endeavor. Up until maybe 20 years ago teachers were considered professionals and respected as such.

However, if you are going to be considered a professional you must act like a professional. Teacher’s unions have destroyed the status of teachers while grouping them with all other contract workers.

I can’t remember the last time I saw huge groups of lawyers or doctors or dentists or architects or accountants marching through the streets carrying crude signs complaining about our government. If you have witnessed this, please let me know.

Put country over party

To the editor:

Over the past year or so, my commentary related to our criminal President has caused some of you to grit your teeth out of love for your “fuehrer” Trump. Fair enough.

My commentary was born of patriotism and love of country. My wife and I, over 30 years, have put our lives on the line ensuring the freedoms we all enjoy remain safe and secure. We have cheated death too many times. America and what it stands for is worth defending and even dying for.

For those of you who swear allegiance not to the constitution but to your dear leader, where do you draw the line? Country over party? Which alleged crime he is committing will make you pause. Freedom under law or blind faced loyalty to this President.

I have been reflecting on all this on the 75th anniversary of the D-day invasion and the thousands of Americans who died on the first day of the invasion. They would say to you, “shame!” This is not what we died for.

We died for all that is good in our country: freedom to speak freely, freedom from want and fear, freedom to worship as we see fit, a country made up of people from all over the world. The greatest generation believed in “from many one.” They demand it of you, as well.

Walk away from Trumps’s madness, embrace our country, the land of the free, the home of the brave! It’s up to you. To make America great is too love your neighbor as yourself, not hate them. America is great because we welcome everyone. Don’t forget what happened to Germany in the 1930s.
