I read the comment from the Speak Up caller in the paper on Sept. 3 and just had to shake my head. What that caller suggested is one of the oldest political tricks in the books.

That person knows that to suggest voters write in a candidate means it would take votes from the other candidate in that…

It doesn't bother me that Donald Trump has changed his mind over the years on questions like abortion and the invasion of Iraq.

He was a private citizen at the time he had these erroneous views.

He wasn't voting on these issues.

There are only two types of people who never change their mind.

Most people are aware that Angela Bryant is a liberal Democrat but I have never seen this newspaper take it this far.

Such bias extremity.

Mrs. Bryant, what is so difficult about where and how to vote?

The sun is not getting hotter.

Actually this summer's temperatures were not all that high.

You have to let all the people in, and once here, you have to let them stay. Doing anything else is inhumane. Doing anything at all is too difficult.

Imagine actually enforcing the borders.…

This is straight and to the point. Had Hillary Clinton NOT shown up at the 9/11 ceremony, she would have been talked about for not attending. Had her campaign admitted on Sept. 9 she had pneumonia and could not attend the ceremony, people would have said she was weak.

Give me a break! It was 90-…

Are people ever going to stop trying to make Election Day politically racial?

I have known that we are holding an election on Nov. 8 for four years. It seems to me in that length of time, you would have figured out when you could vote.

Does this mean that if I am not ready for Christmas on Dec. 25,…

To provide tax breaks to his wealthy friends and campaign donors and to give his former employer free rein to pollute our land and…
