America is out of control

Letter to the Editor Right now America is in the worst shape it’s ever been in since the Civil War. We have a president who is clueless and out of control. America is like being in a car driven by a 7 year old brat who has never driven before while the parents are passed […]

Snowden “Gift” story is fake news!

Letter to the Editor Stories in the press say that Putin is going to give Snowden to Trump as a “gift”. It comes from “intelligence sources”, and it’s all fake news. Our intelligence community are not only liars, but they aren’t even good liars. And when you think things through it’s rather obvious. Snowden was […]

Gorsuch is bad choice for Supreme Court

Letter to the Editor Trump’s choice of Neil Gorsuch is a really bad decision and would be a terrible justice for those of us who believe in personal liberty and freedom. In my case I have terminal stage 4 lung cancer and because I live in California I have the ability to choose how and […]

Republicans break it, Republicans Own It

Letter to the Editor For the last 8 years Republicans did everything they could to make sure Obama failed, even when they agreed with what he wanted. Now the Republicans control the government and they are in charge of making America great rather than making America miserable. And in the last 8 year we went […]

How does Nancy Pelosi feel about NSA spying now?

Letter to the Editor When Bush was president then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was against NSA spying on Americans without a warrant. Then when Edward Snowden revealed that President Obama expanded NSA wiretapping of Americans she was for it, even though she was booed by Democrats at Netroots Nation. Right before Obama left […]

Time for Dems to own their failure

Letter to the Editor It’s one thing to lie, but it’s much worse if you start believing your own lies. That’s the problem of the Democratic Party these days. Trump didn’t get elected by the Russians and the whole Russian hacking story is 100% fiction. Democrats have to own it that they were so incompetent […]

Obama in denial and acting like a child

Letter to the Editor Democrats have this amazing ability that whenever Republicans do something stupid Democrats prove they can be even dumber. Case in point is Obama’s election denial insisting that Trump was elected by Russian hackers and expelling their diplomats. With the Republicans electing the big man baby Obama will not be outdone and […]

Wikileaks and the Election

Letter to the Editor I listened to Obama’s press conference where he accused the Russians of getting Trump elected by hacking email systems and giving the information to Wikileaks. But one thing no one has said is that the information leaked wasn’t true. So the real issue is whether or not the public should have […]

I guess no one told Trump that President is full time job?

Letter to the Editor I read with both amusement and horror that The Donald is going to continue to run his businesses and TV shows like “Celebrity Apprentice” while he is president. And Trump is disinterested in to get his daily national security briefings. I guess no one told Donald Trump that being President of […]

Little Donald cries about election recount

Letter to the Editor I think it’s amazing that our man baby president elect is complaining about a recount in an election where he lost the popular vote by 2 million. After all, he’s the one who was saying that the election was rigged, and I believe him. But it was rigged in his favor. […]

Democrats should help Trump be Successful

Letter to the Editor Like many people I voted for Hillary just to wake up in an alternate universe where Trump is president. Now what do we do? Since we are stuck with Trump and he has no experience we are by definition in trouble. But putting aside the shear shock of what’s happened we […]

Think before you Vote!

Letter to the Editor Tuesday is election day and it’s very important to vote because when you wake up in the morning on Nov. 9th do you want to be freaked out that either Trump or Clinton will become president and you didn’t vote? Especially in this election – who do you want to be […]

Does experience matter for a President?

Letter to the Editor There’s a question about this election that no one seems to be asking. Can someone like Trump who has never held public office become the most powerful person on the planet and not crash civilization? Is being president something that just anyone off the street can do? If you were getting […]

Dying Atheist vs. Pascal’s Wager – Reality or Jesus?

I’m Marc Perkel, founder of the Church of Reality – a religion based on believing what is actually objectively real. On August 1 2016 I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Adneocarsonoma of the lung. this is a fatal diagnosis and if you just Google that the answer is – I have 8 months to live […]

Donating money to Billionaires – are you kidding me?

Letter to the Editor I suppose the reason Trump is a billionaire is that he has ordinary people sending him money for his campaign. Trump claims he’s worth 10 billion dollars so he has plenty of money to fund it himself without asking poor people to donate. Trump has loaned – not donated – several […]

Clinton or Trump on the economy?

Letter to the Editor Who is more likely to fix the economy if elected president, Trump or Clinton? Last time the Clintons were in the White House we had a government surplus and we were paying down the national debt. Trump has never held public office and he’s been bankrupt 6 times.  6 times! Unbelievable! […]

I won’t accept election results if Trump wins

Letter to the Editor Trump says he won’t accept the election results unless he wins the election. Well, 2 can play that game. I won’t accept the election results if Trump wins. And if Trump wins, there’s plenty of room to support the claim that the election was rigged in Trump’s favor. It is well […]

Trump claims rigged election?

Letter to the Editor I find it amazing the Trump thinks the election is rigged against him. It’s laughable to hear any Republican claiming the election is rigged. I’m old enough to remember 2000 when the Supreme Court threw out the vote of the people and elected Bush 5 to 4. Trump is already making […]

Trump says, we should take a drug test

Letter to the Editor Donald Trump says, “We should take a drug test prior to the debate” saying that he thinks Hillary was on drugs. That’s kind of an interesting idea because a drug test would be something the voters would be interested in. There is a lot of speculation that Trump’s sniffles during the […]

Cruz sticking with Trump – why?

Letter to the Editor I’m somewhat surprised that Ted Cruz is sticking with Trump after all the horrible stuff that Trump did to Ted Cruz personally. Trump accused Ted Cruz father of being a conspirator in the assassination of President Kennedy and attacked his wife as being too ugly to be first lady.  Ted Cruz […]

Trump isn’t insane. We are!

Letter to the Editor People criticize Donald Trump for calling women “Ms. Piggy” and that they might be bleeding out of their whatever. They think Trumps a clown for believing Obama faked his own birth certificate or that Ted Cruz’s farther was a conspirator in the Kennedy Assassination. We think he’s nuts that he thinks […]

Trump has bigger hands than Hillary

Letter to the Editor Although the liberal media is declaring Hillary the debate winner, I’m not sure I can agree with that. When the two of them shook hands it was clear that Trump’s hands were way bigger than Clinton’s hands. And we all know that means “you know what” is bigger too! And we […]

Snowden should be pardoned

Letter to the Editor Whistle blower Edward Snowden who revealed information about the illegal Bush/Obama NSA spying program is a national hero and should be pardoned. Yes – what he did was illegal. But if he didn’t act that too would have been illegal. The NSA had been lying to Congress about what it was […]

Putin like Trump because he’s weak and stupid

Letter to the Editor I find it somewhat amusing that presidential candidate Donald Trump thinks that Russian president Putin likes him is a good thing. Putin is a power hungry dictator who wants to restore the former Soviet Union to power, and the best think that could happen for Putin is to have an incompetent […]

I have bad news. I have stage 4 lung cancer

I have some very bad news. For the last 25 years I have been one of the nations most prolific letter to the editor writers. Unfortunately that might come to and end soon as I have been diagnosed stage 4 lung cancer. As someone who understand probabilities far too well I understand this is a […]

Insurance Companies Aetna and Humana should not be allowed to merge

Letter to the Editor In a move to intimidate the Justice Department insurance giant Aetna threatened to pull out of Obamacare if government regulators interfered with its merger with Humana. The health insurance merger should not be allowed to continue. The reason that the government regulates the super corporation is to prevent one company from […]

John McCain does not deserve reelection

Letter to the Editor Senator John McCain, a former prisoner of war in Vietnam, has endorsed Donald Trump in spite of the fact that Trump has advocated the use of torture on prisoners. Trump has also disparaged prisoners of war like McCain calling him and all POWs losers because they were captured. And Trump jokes […]
