OPINION

JC Players play makes for very memorable evening
Dear Editor,

Kudos to the Jennings County Players for their outstanding production of "The Diary Of Anne Frank." Each person involved in the play did an unbelievable job.

The other side of silence and suffering

Cheating to win
Dear Editor,

The only reason Trump was acquitted is because the Republicans are scared of him.

After his party in essence agreed with him that he could do whatever he wanted, Trump fired everyone who testified the truth during the House hearings. The message from this White House is, if you don't do what Trump wants you are out. That's not good.

'Fools repeat their folly'
Dear Editor,
I didn't know the mainstream media would use Scripture in an editorial. (Re: "The infallible president," Jan. 30.)

The early Republicans
Dear Editor,

This is an open response to U.S. Sen. Todd Young as he justifies his vote for acquittal:

Is there a secret pact?
Dear Editor,

With so many grandparents raising their grandkids while their own kids fail to make a living for themselves, they seem to think the government owes the whole family free health care and food stamps.

Why gun permit fees?
Dear Editor,

I am getting ready to file for my handgun permit. I have had one, but it is getting ready to expire and I plan to renew it.

Don't forget value of compromise
Dear Editor,

The impeachment is over. Last week ended the political show of those who have the backing of the American people to impeach or acquit the freely elected leader of our nation.

I don't intend to step into the middle of this firestorm. I would, however, like to relate what I have observed sitting and watching from the sideline.

The truth about V.A. and health care for veterans
Dear Editor,

The letter to the editor in the Jan. 16 edition of the Plain Dealer with the headline "Attention Trump haters" was again written by the same person who has no facts in all of his letters. His continuous assault on the truth is becoming tiresome.

Let's start with the United States Depart­ment of Veterans Affairs, also simply known as the V.A.

Why are gas prices always higher here?
Dear Editor,

Will someone please explain to me why gasoline prices are so much higher in North Vernon than they are in Sey­mour?

Admit it, Trump haters
Dear Editor,

Why do we see most of the Hollywood and entertainment elite regularly slander President Trump? It's because they live in a fantasy world and reality never fazes them. Most of these so-called stars have never had a real job or struggled like an average America, yet think they are experts on everything.

Competent leadership
Dear Editor,

President Trump takes to leadership like a duck to water. Here are just some accomplishments in regard to the economy alone:

Tax cuts for all as we see jobs and factories pouring back into the United States.

'Everyone did everything they could'
Dear Editor,

My son-in-law was recently injured at work. I want to praise the crew at his workplace that acted so quickly. They saved his life.

I know that a few people in North Vernon don't have much confidence in the emergency room at St. Vincent Jennings Hospital, but if not for them and the ambulance workers doing what needed to be done quickly for Duane Gabbard, we would have lost him.

Responsibility for the future
Dear Editor,

In light of the political polarization that has grown rampant in our country, I am compelled to repeat this quote from John F. Kennedy:
"Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer. Let us not seek to fix blame for the past, lest us accept our own responsibility for the future."

Family: We are boycotting Jennings
Dear Editor,

This is an open letter to all Jennings County elected officials and residents.

Our family has a goal of visiting all the state parks, recreation areas, historic sites, etc. We have been to many.

Sadly, we will not be visiting any of the ones we have not been to in Jennings County.

Yet more gun hysteria
Dear Editor,

The resolution declaring Jennings County is now a Second Amend­ment sanctuary county literally makes my stomach turn. Here is my First Amendment right regarding this issue.

Generosity of NV donors helps deliver joy to many
Dear Editor,

I am writing to thank North Vernon residents for sharing the true meaning of Christmas with children around the world. The generosity of North Vernon and the Southeast Indiana Area Team enabled us to well exceed our goal by collecting 12,447 gift-filled shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.

Attention Trump haters
Dear Editor,

I have yet to meet even one Trump hater who can intelligently articulate why they hate him and/or how he has damaged their life and family thus far using metrics, data and trends versus name calling and punching people in the face just for wanting America to be great.

Appalled by VSO's firing
Dear Editor,

This is an open letter to all citizens of Jennings County.

I read about the firing of Nolan Stanley as the county's veterans service officer (Plain Dealer, Jan. 9). I am appalled at the way he was treated. It seems he is guilty until proven innocent. It is close to how the Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives are treating the president with the impeachment proceedings.

History records the truth
Dear Editor,

In the Dec. 19 Plain Dealer, the letter-to-the-editor writer proved he knows nothing about the truth. (Re: "Joe Biden is the one who should be impeached.")

He and the writer of the Dec. 12 letter to the editor (re: "Even 'far-left rags' agree on Ukrainian interference") always try to tell us what a great job Trump is doing both here and abroad. They continue to show us how illegitimate their knowledge really is.
