Gazette lacked class in publishing vulgarity

I’m embarrassed by The Gazette’s coverage (and other papers, as well) of the president’s comments at his immigration policy meeting. I am offended at his stating we should not want more people from poor black African countries or from Haiti. I’m even more offended at the coarse, uncouth language he used to make his point. I wouldn’t use such language around my grandchildren or around my immediate family or my house or any of my polite friends.

Nor would I want any of them reading it or hearing it on radio, TV or any public media. In just today’s paper (Saturday), it is spelled out eight times in the first section. At least the cartoonist (Page 4A) had the good taste to use “s***”. A week ago, you would have had as much class as the cartoonist and nobody would have misunderstood what was said. As often as the media have complained about the deterioration of civil discourse, could you (and most of the current media) please try to give us some example?

Thanks to the cartoonist for showing some class!



Wanted: Congressman with backbone to stand up to Trump

I just read Rep. Paul Ryan’s response to Trump’s comments about countries with peoples of color. Ryan stated these comments were “unhelpful.” I get tired of our Wisconsin congressman voicing mild dissatisfaction with Trump’s obvious racial beliefs and then his going out and supporting Trump’s agenda, such as supporting a pedophile running for office.

Wisconsin needs a congressman who stands up for what Wisconsinites believe and stops supporting the evil Trump continues to spout. Ryan goes wherever the wind blows. I want someone with the backbone to say, “This is wrong, and Wisconsin does not support it.”



Democrats, not Trump, acting mentally unstable

Democrats accusing the president of being unstable and incompetent are “the pot calling the kettle black.” It’s like Al Capone calling the Justice Department corrupt. Their attempts to delegitimize this president grow more pathetic every day. It’s the left that can’t seem to get a grip on reality. I’ve never seen a political party so unhinged and delusional to this magnitude.

Donald Trump is the best president we’ve ever had, which is magnified by the fact that he repealed and replaced the worst one we ever had. He’s keeping his promise like no other, and his accomplishments are already resonating in big ways, such as our economy and immigration. More blacks are employed than ever, and the fact that he is defunding the United Nations is a monumental feat. The UN is nothing more than refuge for terrorists and a vehicle for world government.

He will not sell out his constituents like Rep. Paul Ryan and other establishment types. Unlike them, he shows no willingness to betray his country. That is why he is despised by the elite.

He won’t accept anything less than a constitutional form of immigration reform, and he puts climate change issues pretty much dead last on his priorities.

To question his mental stability is a lame attempt to get him out of office.

I believe he is divinely protected and the hand of God has been on him from the start. Christ knows what it’s like to be unjustly persecuted and what Trump is enduring and will help him stand firm.



Testosterone is going to get us all killed

Why can’t we all just get along? Well, we can, and we have in the past, but currently a few patriarchal authoritarians won’t sleep until they control everyone.

The world today isn’t divided into right and left; it’s divided into winners and losers.

Despite the consternation, I’ll bet most of us can agree on some key issues pegging our stress meter.

The following seem headed for the stratosphere along with our anger and frustration: the cost of housing, education, medical care, money in politics, the wages of multinational CEOs and carbon monoxide.

If you haven’t noticed, the one percenters have the rest of us on a slippery slope that’s greased with stagnant income. Think “tax reform” and “trickle down.”

I don’t look for things to change until America has a Bastille Day, or another Kent State, or Sterling Hall, or a few more Fergusons. I’m not advocating nastiness, just acquainting a few folks with human nature.

In place of an apocalypse, I’ll hope Harvey Weinstein is the catalyst for a matriarchal world.

Call me a dreamer, but testosterone is going to get us all killed.
