Time for a history lesson for all my Republican friends: Ford pardoned Nixon. Reagan sold arms to Iran and funded a secret war that Congress knew nothing about and then lied to the American people about it. George Bush Sr. told us “no new taxes,” and then we know what happened. His son lied about Iraq’s role in 9/11, and led us into the costliest war in U.S. history. Cheney outed a covert CIA agent as political payback. And Hillary, in your opinion, is the worst of the worst for using a private server? Time for a little perspective, I think.
Yes, I would encourage everybody in the community to go see the movie, “Hillary’s America.” Very informative. For one who would like to know about our candidates, I think this would be a good movie to see. Have a good day.
Recently a Last Word reader suggested we all stop submitting comments about the presidential campaign. Good idea, and I would like to stop that, too. But, we continue to have readers submit nasty and outright wrong comments that can only have come from biased sources like Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and their cohorts. Readers like me, who get news from many sources — liberal and conservative — know much of their stuff is wrong, and simply can’t resist setting the record straight. I propose that people stop using Last Word to spread this right-wing blather. Then, I’ll bet other folks like me will stop our comments as well.
The first time the American government experimented with trickle-down economics, aka supply-side economics, the Reagan Administration jumped the national debt 468 percent, from $880 billion dollars to $5 trillion in eight years. Now we have a candidate who is proposing doing it again. We can’t afford that.
With the Russian hack of the DNC, the specter of their hacking electronic voting machines and throwing the election in the favor of their favored candidate, there is a cheap and easy solution which cannot be hacked. Paper ballots and No. 2 pencils. And, there is no chance of “hanging chads” and other irregularities.
With apologies to the Bard: Drop out, Drop out brief Trump! You are but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and is heard no more. Yours is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
Dan Rather was quick to state that Trump’s comment on those who believe in the Second Amendment would resort to violence if Hillary was to be elected President. Where was Dan Rather when Black Lives Matter condoned violence against law enforcement? I expected nothing less from the liberal biased news.
Every time Trump gives a speech in public, the Democrats place hecklers in the audience. This is obviously well planned, as those hecklers do so in a spaced out manner. I think it’s about time that the Republicans do the same. I would also suggest, in response to protests from Black Lives Matter, that all off-duty law enforcement officers protest at Democratic events.
Trump can’t get a break. Last week he was hoping the economy would tank fast. Too bad for him the stock market hit new highs, the Obama economy created nearly 600,000 new jobs in two months and the unemployment rate is at 4.9 %. What kind of sick person would root for his fellow Americans to lose their job so they can find you another one?
