OPINION July 23, 2016


Trump is not good for USA
The presidential election campaign this year has gotten to the point where certain accusations make no sense.

Diversity is a strength
Your editorial "Healing a divided nation" (July 14) hit the nail squarely on the head.
Our freedoms in this great land allow us too many things that are restricted in other places around the world. Our presumptions and understanding change along with our maturity. We are each the product of our individual environment.

Child support and courts
It's nice to see the courts do something for these mothers. (Re: "Dead­beat dads sought," The Sun, July 12).

Clinton a member of governing elite
I hoped that after FBI Director James Comey testified before Congress last week, I would be able to say that he had sufficient grounds to say that Hillary Clinton should not be charged with a criminal indictment, but unfortunately, he proved to me that this is not the case. He chose to make a political decision.

Doesn't humor in political cartoons go both ways?
It appears our left-leaning local newspaper has taken up the art of using political cartoons to push their anti-Trump, anti-gun, anti-anything conservative liberal agenda.

Differences in girls, boys leagues?
Dear Editor,
I have a child in a softball league at the North Vernon City Park. We paid $60 to play softball in the 8-year-old division (C league) and my daughter received a shirt and pants.

CSL property owner: Where did tax money go?
Dear Editor,
This is an open letter to the people of Country Squire Lakes.

Beware of barbecued bugs
Dear Editor:
What ever happened to the good old days when our worst worries on the Fourth of July were traffic jams and wayward fireworks?

Stoplight would be change
Dear Editor,
Just as I expected, our opinions are welcome but, as the Plain Dealer editorial suggests, a roundabout is probably in our future, possibly two. (Re: "Traffic changes ahead?", June 23.)

'Bashing on emotions'
ordable Care Act? Using "Obamacare" can only be taken as an insult and insinuation when the tone of the article is critical of the situation.

Obamacare isn't perfect but it is an improvement
What I'm supposed to be following in the opening of this piece is not apparent.

Why do civilians need an AR-15?
In 1949, the Soviet Armed Forces put a new, deadly assault rifle into general use, the AK-47.

Blood donor laws too restrictive
In 1983, near the apex of the AIDS crisis, it made sense to ban gay men from donating blood to the nation's supply. HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, can be transmitted through blood.

Nice people and good bluegrass
Congratulations to Betty and Elmer Naylor of Holton on their 60th wedding anniversary.

Higher premiums coming?
An Indiana couple who wrote to me a few weeks ago has experienced the ups and downs of Obama­care, and they wanted me to know about one downside they now face - a monthly premium of $836.
"No one should have to pay those high premiums unless you're considered high class, and we aren't," the woman said.   
The couple-she is 59 and he is 62-are self-employed, and their income fluctuates. At first the Affordable Care Act was, a "godsend," the woman told me.
Before they signed up for Obamacare, they were paying almost $1,000 a month for insurance coverage. Then they bought an Obamacare policy, a Gold plan Anthem sold on the Indiana shopping exchange.

'Most corrupt courthouse'
I have read the stories about open government in Jennings County. Good luck with that in this county.

Freedom and the slippery slope toward totalitarianism
It is a very slippery slope between freedom and totalitarian. There is very little space to stand in between.

Roads may need work, but leave well enough alone
Dear Editor,
I read with interest your story about the family in Muscatatuck River Caverns. (Re: "Public safety issue with many private roads," The Sun, May 24.) I know the gentleman quoted in the article and he is right! The roads there are in very bad shape. They need fixed.

His love surrounds us
I have walked in hell in Korea and Vietnam. I cannot replace or compare my loss. It is my loss.
