Re: “Reader: Vote carefully

All of the stuff that Trump is actually doing, are exactly the same things that he falsely accused Dems of doing. All of the credulous whiners who swallowed these lies and claimed to be outraged by such behavior, are perfectly happy to watch Trump actually carry them out.

Re: “Reader: Vote carefully

This letter first appeared in the Independent on June 6th, but the comments do not appear until today, almost a full week later. I wonder if it took that long to think up all of these snappy responses, or maybe it took that long just to reach page five!

Re: “Reader: No good deed...

For my part, I would like to congratulate Mr. Panure. He has learned a valuable lesson the hard way, but it has not made him bitter or dissuaded him from pursuing his goals. Embarrassing as the incident was, he owned up to it. I say he is no longer a dewy-eyed novice, and well on his way to achieving something.

Re: “Reader: No good deed...

I have always found the term, "Judeo-Christian," to be problematic. Merriam-Webster defines it as, "relating to both Judaism *and* Christianity [emphasis added]." Too many believe it means relating to Judaism *or* Christianity.

For example, the Ten Commandments can be characterized as Judeo-Christian, but the Lord's Prayer cannot. Taking pleasure in the misfortune of others is indeed contrary to Judeo-Christian ethics, but whether or not Jesus was dirty or homeless is most definitely not a concern of Judaism.

Re: “El Paso County Sheriff's Office adopts program to identify mental health issues

I have suspected from the beginning that LIMA-CHARLIE is just another hacker stirring the pot, because his posts are so pointless and confusing. Now, as if to confirm my doubts, he writes, "ya all think so?" What kind of slang is that?

In the South, they say and write, "y'all," and, yes, it is written with an apostrophe! Yankees show their ignorance by saying, "you all," when they try to make fun of the Southern accent. But this is the first time (and hopefully the last) I have ever seen "ya all!"

Re: “Nazis booed out of Georgia, protected by police

I must also point out with regard to the headline that Georgia police protected counter protestors as well as Nazis. Let's remember in Charlottsville it was a counter protestor who died--not a Nazi--because police protected no one.

Re: “Nazis booed out of Georgia, protected by police

"Masks were the other big no-no (a 1950s Georgia law aimed at the KKK prohibits wearing them)."

And it has proven to be a very useful and effective law. Once upon a time, the Klan could burn a cross on the lawn of anyone they did not like, with impunity. Once upon upon a time local officials--mayors, councilmen, police--could be Klansmen secretly. Now that they cannot hide their faces behind their hoods they are not so bold. Now that we can see their faces they do not look so scary. And if we want such laws to continue to apply to the Klan, they must be applied equally to all.

The Antifa movement makes a great tactical error in masking their faces. To all the world they look like criminals and thugs seeking most of all to avoid arrest. They ought to look like ordinary people, like the sons and daughters and neighbors of all Americans, ready to face the consequences of their civil disobedience because they believe in the justness of their cause.
