Letters to the Editor

You can vote out Trump without supporting Dems

To the editor: This is in response to two recent letters from Mr. Michael Spahr. The most recent, on Tuesday, Sept. 1, compares the government response to COVID-19 and car accidents. The two are in no way comparable. Car accidents, unless it is a chain reaction, are not contagious. If I ...

How is killing of naked, restrained man justifiable?

To the editor: Explain to me how it is that a naked, handcuffed man with a bag over his head is a threat. It seems to me that all you need to do to be safe is walk away. What could a naked, handcuffed man with a bag over his head do to you if you walk away… run in a circle chasing the ...

Sports ‘for the kids’ don’t happen without parents

To the editor: I would like to respond to the editorial in the Aug. 15 Sentinel. The saying “It’s for the kids,” I believe was not originated by parents, but by governmental agencies who try to benefit their agendas by using the slogan. Of course, parents appreciate all the people ...

Asking for foreign meddling in our elections is wrong

To the editor: In The Sentinel editorial on Aug. 25, the writer wants you to focus on an obvious misconduct by a former FBI lawyer and not on the mounting evidence of wrongdoing by President Donald Trump and his officials which is revealed in the Republican-led Senate report which mirrors the ...

Don’t live in fear just because you are told to

To the editor: Please think about not driving your car, truck or SUV. According to Wikipedia, in 2018 about 100 people per day in the U.S. were killed in automobile accidents. Think of the lives that could be saved by not driving. Think of the fossil fuel that would be saved and the positive ...

Is Trump the best we can do? Well, yes, actually

To the editor: I don’t hate President Trump but I don’t like him either. I voted for him because I felt Hillary Clinton would be bad for the country. I cannot emphasize enough how I dislike Trump. I turn the channel when he is on TV, no matter the issue. His manner of speaking repulses ...

Don’t fall into trap of ‘economic slavery’

To the editor: Bob Knable’s letter to the editor in the Aug. 17 paper is what I would call a little gem of a fact of life. It is the key to a happy and successful life for us all. That is one of the best ways to advance ourselves is to “aspire” and be willing to work for successes in ...

A little respect for authority would go a long way

To the editor: Almost everyone can read in America but some cannot comprehend what they read. If I say Black Lives Matter is bad (the organization’s quotes are in my prior letter to the editor) and I state that police reform is needed this equates to some that I didn’t get the point of ...

Life’s problems are addressed in the Bible

To the editor: I heard a young black woman who was using foolish reasoning say “So what if we loot stores as part of our protest? It is just reparations.” Using that type of reasoning, it should be just fine if I and some others who have Native American blood in our background to ...

The sin of holding a bible in the air

To the editor: So now holding a bible aloft makes one a liar. I would find favor with doing that instead of those who would, in front of thousands of fans, kneel in scorn of the flag and anthem. Mr. Rhodes, the whole of your hateful condemnation of President Trump is a perfect example of ...
