Leave Trump Alone

I offer no apology for what I am posting for this is truly how I feel.

I have lived through the Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations. In my lifetime I have never seen or heard of a president being scrutinized over every word he speaks, humiliated by some American citizens and shown so much disrespect for him and his family! 

I am truly ashamed of the people of this country, who have such little regard for other people, as to do what they are doing to this man and his family, the President of the United States of America!  I am ashamed of the ruthless, hating, cruel haters who have no morals, no scruples, no ethics, no honesty, and no self-respect and news reporters, who feel they have the right to purposely lie and do the things they are doing.

Every other president, after they were elected and took the oath of office, were left alone, they weren’t on the news 24/7 being dissected by every word out of their mouth, to do this or that and never being given the support to do the important work that needs to be done.

I truly don't care if you are Democrat, Independent or Republican, this badgering by the media and whoever has go to stop!

Enough is enough!  Leave the man alone and let him do his job for the sake of this country!

Great Easter Column

First, thanks for the wonderful Easter column! You did a great job of telling what Easter is all about (not eggs, bunnies and candy).

Both I and my wife greatly enjoy your writing and the greatly improved Citizen under your leadership. Keep up the good work!

Mixing Privacy and Abortion Law

The one day privacy law is widely known as the abortion law. You have an abortion one day. And Roe vs. Wade applies then.

Why aren’t women in control of their bodies on the day of conception as well? Make it a two-day law? It seems feminists want it both ways.

Some women were in control of their bodies before anyone ever thought of this right to privacy. Women have always had the right and responsibility, and exercised it. We decided if we wanted three, or six, or 12 children.

Roe vs. Wade only supplants the right to responsibility. That is the crux of feminists, females wanting special dispensation from responsibility. Look at the mess they make of the things they touch.

Equal rights for all are fair. However, that is not what feminism is all about. It is about the supplantation by the macho broads for the macho dudes. Feminism is about power-lusting women. Feminists want power, money and sex just like the macho dudes The female of the species is always deadlier, the toxics.  Other perspectives are as legitimate as feminist views, and deserve a hearing.

Strong and smart women can make it on their own. Compete fairly. That is not at all what feminism is about. Suffragettes had little in common with feminists. Suffragettes wanted the vote, but there was no mention of qualifications to vote. All voters need to be informed. That should have been included in the right to vote petition. Some form of knowledge requirement. Uninformed voters are a detriment to society. Some of my friends rely on my research for a guide to vote, think they should invest the time and effort to acquaint themselves with candidates and issues, voting is too important.

Look at our current Congress. Laws, votes and responsibilities have consequences. We need to do research before we embrace issues and candidates. Freedom requires diligence against the power-lusting corrupters
