Racetrack death and the media
Aug. 14, 2014
We have been inundated by the news media about Tony Stewart hitting Kevin Ward Jr. The news media have worn the story out, as they usually do with stories. All of the news media seem to be mystified that anyone could be killed on a racetrack and say Stewart is responsible.
Hamas: What do you say?
Aug. 13, 2014
All these people getting killed, and they blame the people with the rockets raining down on them. This is sad.
Act on Tule Springs bill
Aug. 13, 2014
As the Las Vegas Sun reported, on July 30, the House Committee on Natural Resources passed a package of Northern Nevada lands bills, one of which is known as the Yerington Mining bill. We applaud Congressmen Horsford and Amodei for their ability to work out the differences with House leadership. Now it’s time to see that Southern Nevada lands legislation gets through this committee for passage during this Congress.
Take a stand, local law enforcement
Aug. 12, 2014
Federal agencies such as the BLM have considered themselves superior and nonresponsive to local law enforcement for the past 30 years or so. The superiority complex is a shared feeling enjoyed by all federal agencies because, well, hey, they represent the federal government!
Let’s kick soccer up to Reno
Aug. 12, 2014
I hear UNLV wants to build a stadium. Some say it would cost millions more for a covered stadium. I have an idea ...
Thoughts from a gun owner
Aug. 11, 2014
I am weary of gun violence in this country. As a gun owner, I endorse the expansion of background checks to deny abusers from obtaining guns as well as ammunition.
Confederate flag and our rights
Aug. 11, 2014
The Confederate flag and other such battle flags from the Civil War era have no place in American society.
Another bad move by GOP Congress
Aug. 11, 2014
Apparently, like the current GOP Congress, the writer of the July 28 letter “Understand the role of Congress” doesn’t understand its role, either.
Three issues for Congress to tackle
Aug. 10, 2014
Americans need Congress to take up the cause on three matters of great importance.
Most-read stories say a lot about us
Aug. 10, 2014
Every morning, I look forward to a cup of coffee and my Las Vegas Sun.
We need to keep the death penalty
Aug. 8, 2014
The whiners and bleeding hearts will never stop complaining about the death penalty and how it is carried out in this country. I’m referring to the column by David Love, “Death penalty is torture,” in the Aug. 4 Sun.
Israel has right to defend itself
Aug. 8, 2014
My congratulations to Brian Greenspun for saying it’s time to put heat on Palestinian Authority leaders for their alignment with the terrorist Hamas group, and that it should be Obama and the State Department doing it. Obama has called for Israel to show “restraint,” when it has a legitimate right to defend itself and to retaliate for continued rocket attacks, but we hear nothing about his admonitions to the Palestinian Authority.
GOP failing to discredit president
Aug. 8, 2014
In an interview in 2010, Mitch McConnell stated his No. 1 goal was to make Barack Obama a one-term president. The Republicans tried their best by obstructing nearly every idea he presented. Even though the plan did not work, the GOP has not given up. No president in history has been a victim of opposite-party obstructionism more than Obama. Attempting to repeal the Affordable Care Act dozens of times is a prime example. Far worse is the GOP’s lack of agreement with Obama on foreign issues. This is an area where there has always been bipartisan support.
Elect Trump? Is that a joke?
Aug. 7, 2014
I just read the Monday letter to the editor “Impeach Obama and elect Trump.” I am not sure if this is an attempt at humor or if the writer has missed some important information.
Divided camps, divided opinions
Aug. 7, 2014
I been following the letters and opinions regarding the people who are illegally entering the United States through our southern border. It’s striking the background differences in the opposing camps.
