Have a heart
It is hateful to call migrants a free-for-all mass swarming of illegals storming our borders, as one letter writer did. The president and the alleged shooter in El Paso both used words much like that.
Killing them softly
In reference to a letter, “Guns do kill people,” guns are a weapon of choice. If it wasn’t a gun and a person wanted to kill someone, they would find another tool. A gun is just a tool.
To the person who wrote about Social Security for old people, we paid that in. We worked and we paid that in. Not like people today. People today want Social Security, they want all this free stuff, because they’re too lazy to get out and work. They want welfare, they want food stamps, they want shoes for their kids, they want free lunches, they want this, they want that — but they won’t to get out and work for it like we did. We worked and we paid into it, so we are entitled to it. Let them work like we did, because it didn’t hurt us. It made us better citizens because we didn’t want everything handed to us.
Editor’s note: Under existing regulations, someone who doesn’t accrue enough work hours might not be able to get Social Security benefits.
How dare President Donald Trump tell an American citizen to be quiet, and why aren’t Republicans standing up for our freedom of speech rights?
Blame the shooter
The blame game is on high volume now that there have been two more senseless mass shootings. I’m curious whether anyone thinks the blame rest squarely on the shoulders of the shooters. We have, for far too long, tried to shift responsibility from the person who commits the offense onto someone else. We are all responsible for our own actions, not somebody else.
Things change. They evolve, and people should do the same thing. So that person who called in and talked about the history of the Democratic Party, if you do not like those values, well, don’t be a Republican, because those are now Republican values. The policies have shifted. I wish people were better educated.
Clearing it up
Not everybody in this town with a backpack on is a meth addict.
