Letters to the editor
We are supposed believe that it is possible to guaranty that 200,000,000 votes are safe from hacking when the DNC isn’t confident about security 447 votes. Nope, they voted by paper ballot to make sure there
was a way to verify the voters ID (there’s a novel idea) and to insure there was no hacking (really). The take away here?
The American people are being deceived at every turn. Our elections are not secure as evidenced by the DNC’s own admission.
Voter ID is good enough for the Democratic party it is good enough for the American people. The same is true of verifiable paper ballots. I would recommend studying Dictatorship and Authoritarian form of government. They are beginning to look like our new reality, unless Pres. Trump can fix things.
All through this past presidential election, Hillary Clinton strutted up and down the public street with her little tin drum boasting how she would be ‘THE Woman’ who would break the big glass ceiling of politics by becoming the first female to sit in the Oval Office. She even went so far as to rent the massive, glass Jacob K. Javits Convention Center for that symbolic moment when she captured the electoral college. The ominous harbinger of defeat reared its ugly head when her campaign suddenly cancelled its purchase of a massive, celebratory fireworks display, (President-Elect Trump’s supporters later joked that the astute businessman scooped it up for ten cents on the dollar for his Inaugural Concert!). The election battle raged on into the night, but in the early hours of the morning of November 9th, it became apparent that her hopes were dashed. Hillary’s touted glass ceiling came crashing down around her, smashed by a woman who did not even run for president, but succeeded beyond all measure in her profession, and went mostly unreported by the liberally-biased mainstream media.
I see an awful lot of criticism about Education Secretary Betsey Devos, the most frequent is that she has not worked in the public education system. Right there I see a problem, an admission that public education is not the same as private education.
Isn’t that exactly the issue? With more demand for school choices I see the challenge being that we need to set our sights on improving public education so that it is on a par with private institutions. Who better to do that than someone who has been involved in offering a higher level of education?
While I am not unsympathetic to the challenges faced by the state run school system, I do think that our ranking in the world proves that we are missing the boat. And, I admit, I don’t know the answer but obviously, neither does the Federal government. If it did, we wouldn’t have a problem.
So, can’t we all, educators, parents, voters, agree that we are not doing the job (which in no way is the fault of the classroom teachers or even administration on a local level) and work toward making our education system at least as good as those countries who are leaving us in the dust?
A great leader doesn’t need to know all the details, they need to surround themselves with quality people who do have them.
A movement has to have a common enemy to coalesce around. Trump has chosen the fake news writers and publishers. Good choice? Yes, because they can’t, at least effectively, fight back.
Similar to the demonizing of smokers that led to all the smoking bans. Smokers couldn’t fight back, they were easy pickings.
Of the people who think Betsy Devos is not qualified to be Education Secretary, Ben Carson is not qualified to be Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, or that Scott Pruitt is not qualified to be head of the Environmental Protection Agency most probably thought Barack Obama was qualified to be President. Think about that for a minute.
We are really seeing what happens when a society becomes bound up with laws upon laws upon laws with none going away and hundreds being added every year. Pretty soon the laws are in direct conflict.
Marijuana has been outlawed on a federal level in this country since 1937. Prior to that 30 states had already outlawed it. Is the use of marijuana a state or federal issue? I would think that until the Supreme Court rules otherwise, the Federal law supersedes state law.
I think Islamists should be restrained from living in moderate or conservative demographic areas.
They should be restricted to live in predominately far left, anarchist, Marxist and progressive regions.
In just a few years the radical left will become moderates, the anarchists bible thumpers and progressives will convert to center right, Marxists will finally understand the difference between Groucho and Karl. The liberals will still read the Huffington Post.
How and why did John McCain’s temper not get press? Now I see and read that it is off the charts known, and I had zero idea about it…I gave this guy a lot of money for his election campaign. He clearly has PTSD! He needs to step down. Cursing like school boy at a female reporter on jet flight. My God. Rand is correct, thank God he is NOT in charge…There is a real problem here,
We don’t talk to each other anymore and we don’t respect the process that makes our country great.
