Check the facts of Baltimore case
May 19, 2015
The letter writer says, “The Baltimore indictments may have changed that. These white cops in Baltimore have been called on their lies and …
Security no reason not to protect lands
May 19, 2015
Despite claiming to be “appalled and deeply concerned” about the potential security implications of a proposed national monument backed by local tourism and conservation groups, Rep. Cresent Hardy didn’t …
Obama does much worthy of defending
May 18, 2015
When he was a presidential candidate, Barack Obama said he would bring our troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan, and as president he did. He said he would bring about health care reform; he did. He said he would save the auto industry, and he did. He said he would bring down unemployment rates, which he has.
Everyone has the right to marry
May 18, 2015
We live in a land founded in part on the concepts of religious freedom, separation of church and state, and equal protection under the law.
Hillary Clinton has proved herself
May 17, 2015
Hillary Clinton proved while she was first lady that she knows how to end wars (in the Balkans, she possibly prevented World War III), create jobs (227 million per Forbes and The Washington Post), conquer disease (cigarettes: We were processing 400 miles of bodies for burial every year; that volume is down 15 percent and getting lower every day) and raise a good kid (Chelsea, a beautiful, good-hearted lady).
Politicians carry blame for wrongs
May 17, 2015
The letter “Police misdeeds may finally bring changes” (Las Vegas Sun, May 11) is a little shy of truths. The letter writer states that white police officers in Baltimore killed a black man, Freddie Gray.
Item on efficiency of IRS right on mark
May 16, 2015
The article “Republicans love to hate the IRS, but it’s a model of efficiency” (Las Vegas Sun, April 4) was right on target. You would have to be an utterly stupid businessman or a deranged politician to rave about how effectively you were able to shut off the revenue stream that keeps you funded.
Islam disallows violent reactions
May 16, 2015
I am profoundly dismayed to hear about the attempted terrorist attack in Garland, Texas, at the occasion of a provocative anti-Islam cartoon contest.
Minorities commit most murders in New York City
May 16, 2015
I just finished reading Eugene Robinson’s article “We find trouble when we go looking for it.” Robinson seems to leave out some factual analysis.
Writer missed mark on Social Security
May 16, 2015
Megan McArdle — a writer on economics, business and public policy — wrote an article titled “Retirement Entitlement,” printed in the Review-Journal on April 19.
Minorities commit most NYC murders
May 15, 2015
Eugene Robinson also said Freddie Gray was no menace to society and that maybe some intervention would have gotten his life on track. What do you call being arrested 20 times, some for selling heroin, if it isn’t …
Writer missed mark on Social Security
May 15, 2015
Our government finds many ways to subsidize large and small corporations; it also has created a tax program that allows corporations to move their corporate office to a foreign country in order to avoid paying income tax to this country. If we can support corporations in this manner, then we should have no problem supporting …
Same-sex marriage needs new category
May 14, 2015
. Somewhere along the line I remembered hearing same-sex couples referring to their partners as “husband” or “wife.” By freely adopting these titles (currently defined as the male partner in a marriage and the female partner in a marriage), surely same-sex couples have …
Hutchison should focus only on his job
May 14, 2015
It is my understanding that Mark Hutchison, lieutenant governor of Nevada, announced he would be the Nevada campaign director for a presidential candidate. Hutchison was elected to be the …
Where’s the outrage about Mayweather?
May 14, 2015
Why is boxer Floyd Mayweather held up as some kind of hero when he is a wife beater? His children witnessed him …
