LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Call Trump’s bluff

In reference to “Short Memory on the Wall” by Paul Donnelly (Letter to the Editor, Aug. 5). Dear Sir, obviously you get your news from sound bytes. Trump regularly said everything is up for negotiations and Mexico will pay for it one way or another. Please Democratic congressional members, dare to do your job! Trump […]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Stupid is as stupid does

I am so happy to have Trump as our president, but some days I really wonder about that guy. Like the other day when he tweeted about how stupid Don Lemon and LeBron James were. LBJ is a beloved American NBA hero, who does a lot of good stuff for our kids and who is […]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Trump not even close

Mr. McHugh, I read your letter about our current POTUS [“Give Trump time,” DSN July 28]. I have to disagree with you on this subject, he is no where near the caliber of Teddy Roosevelt or Ronald Reagan. Even the presidential historians have said the only thing that marred the Regan administration was trickle down […]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Short memory on the wall

An article appeared in the July 30 State News, re: Trump willing to to shut government over border security. When you read this article you see that the real issue is that this man is not getting funding for his border wall. I know Trump’s followers have a short memory so I will remind them, […]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Trump in Helsinki – Whom do you trust?

The public is well aware of the recent meeting that occurred between President Trump and President Putin in Helsinki, Finland. Although neither side came away with any substantial agreements, there were some unintentional fireworks at the press conference, which followed especially the final question posed specifically to President Trump over the credibility of intelligence findings […]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Democrats’ playbook on Trump getting old

Drip, Drip, Drip. That’s what I was hearing when I read Rebecca Scarborough’s opinion piece in Tuesday’s State News. (“Defending our American democracy”) The same ole, same ole rhetoric from you folks on the left just continue to amaze me. Your playbook reminds me of a cartoon character that bets on a game and loses. […]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Congress just sent in the clowns

On July 12, the infamous FBI agent Peter Strzok appeared before congressional committees to defend his controversial text messages between himself and his then-FBI attorney/colleague/lover Lisa Page. His qualified statements included assorted offerings i.e., He didn’t recall sending certain verified texts; He would “love” to answer your question BUT the FBI directs me, due to […]


America’s president, Mr. Donald Trump, is somewhere between Teddy Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan. He certainly is not the polished, buttoned-down, diplomatic statesman president we have been used to over the past several decades, nor was he elected as such. Historically, national leaders should be allowed to mold in to their positions. A new-style president should […]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Republicans, now do you see a problem?

As a patriotic American, it is clear to me that our current president is neither a champion of the American people nor the United States of America itself. Beyond the rhetoric, and outright enabling, of some media outlets and too many members of Congress, the performance given by the president in Helsinki is more than […]
