For sake of nation's prosperity, elect a Democrat

Trump doesn’t seem to want to be president
Aug. 20, 2016

Trump may drop out of race
Aug. 16, 2016
I can just picture Donald Trump’s devious smile. Would there be mass political chaos, celebrations or both? Trump is now sure he has no chance to win the general election against Clinton. And there is also no doubt that Trump intends to punish both America and the Republican Party for, as he sees it, politically “stabbing him in the back.”
Get Trump a dictionary
Aug. 16, 2016
The Republican presidential nominee has claimed he can be the Secretary of Keeping All the Jobs in the U.S. He has a close friend who is building the eighth wonder of the world in Mexico.

In recent news, Khizr Khan, father of fallen Muslim American Capt. Humayun Khan, stated that Donald Trump “sacrificed nothing and no one.” In response, Trump stated that he sacrificed by creating “thousands” and “tens of thousands of jobs” — a theme similar to …
Workshops for those with disabilities can preserve dignity

Regarding the letter to the editor “Not all can have regular diploma” (Las Vegas Sun, Aug. 5): I admire the writer’s candor. Too often, opinions are set forth in print that lack depth in understanding the challenges …

Trump gives veterans obvious reasons to vote against him

I’m a retired master chief petty officer of the Navy who spent 30 years on continuous active duty. I’m a combat veteran of the Vietnam War, where I served in the Mekong Delta as a machine gunner aboard the gunboats of …
Loser Trump sets the stage to deny November defeat's legitimacy

Trump is an affront to the GOP's days of Reagan
Aug. 6, 2016
I had my problems with Ronald Reagan, the “patron saint” and “savior” of the modern Republican Party. Reagan’s cut-and-run strategy following the terrorist bombing of the Marine Corps barracks …
Concealed-carry permit holders can protect others at businesses
Aug. 6, 2016
