Re: “Letters: Sen. Merrifield slams Gazette editorial board

Michael Merrifield continues to be a voice of intelligence, reason, and sanity in the wasteland of mumbled garbage and the never-ending chant of "Me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me...." My most heartfelt gratitude to this dedicated public servant!!

Re: “Reader: Yup ... it's us bad, old Bible-believing Christians...

My, my, my, Tom!! You do have a deep affection for loaded words, don't you? You know, those turns of the language that are intended to inflame the emotions of your desired audience? Words like "drama queen" and "over-exaggerated" and "religious boogeyman" and "claims" (you aren't familiar with the term "postulate"?) and "rant and rail" and "bad, old bibble believing christians" and "LGBTQ agenda" and "pushing progressive agenda (oh, my! so many agendas!! and all hers! not yours, of course) and 'supposed evangelical stronghold".... It's pretty clear that you have inflamed yourself, Tom! To what end? Do you feel strong now? Do you puff up with pride at your hateful letter? Do you think you have brought anyone over to your agenda? Do you feel superior, sinless, blameless? Did you put her in her place (the closet)? Are you fighting those feelings of attraction to guys inside yourself? It's okay, really. You were born whatever way your god intended. Just go with it.

Re: “The Trump presidency, deplorables, the media, and more

"Now that Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States of America, do you want to know why? It is simple: Hillary Clinton called me a 'deplorable....'" That's it, huh? You chose to be hurt or insulted or piqued or whateverthehell because you think she called you a name? Drumpf said Mexicans were murderers and rapists and must be kept out of our pristine white country with a impenetrable wall, and you were okay with that?? He called women "bitches" and "whores" and bragged that he could grab them by the private parts and they couldn't do anything about it--and that's alright with you? But god forbid Clinton call you something. He threatens to jail, deport, and otherwise harm people because of their choice of faith paths, dismembering families, separating parents and children, but that's no skin off your nose because you're not Muslim, right? You're not female, disabled, black, elderly, homeless, gay--so you're okay with all of the danger those "other" people are in. But, but, but--she called me a bad name!!! Sheesh....

Re: “A Federated States of America?

Dearest UCanSee--You are absolutely correct. I will demand that the editor immediately remove your hateful comment. Thanks for bringing that up!

Re: “Downtown envy, abortion rights, the modern GOP, and more

As a downtown-area resident for more than 45 years, I become more and more frustrated every time someone says that downtown needs to be a destination go-to for locals with live theatre and music venues. Hello? In the many years I have lived here, we have lost our grocery store, drug store, variety store, family clothing stores, family-friendly restaurants, and on and on. I don't want another bar with music. I want to be able to fill a prescription without driving miles. I want to be able to purchase groceries in my neighborhood. I would love more than one or two restaurants where I can dine alone and not feel out of place because I'm not drinking. I know, I know--old woman, the world has passed you by.
