Letters to the Editor

Frakes: One party rule here To the Editor: I can’t understand why everyone is running down China. Aren’t their politics the same as we have here? Don’t we also have one party rule?  What the top dog says is law? Doesn’t our government want to control all our energy sources, churches, businesses and...
Frakes: 'We're in teh money, and it's all free, and more is coming To the Editor: Halleluia! We’re in the money! We’re in the money! And it’s all free! And more coming! What do we get with this free money? The warm fuzzies! All of us, especially the upper crust ruling class in D.C., get the warm...
Meinerts: Stimulus not so stimulating To the Editor: Trillion — a figure we hear a lot from our Washington bureaucrats. Does anyone even understand how big that number is? A million seconds is 11.57 days, a billion seconds is 31 years and a trillion seconds is 31,688 years. The 1.9 trillion dollar...
Gust: Health care professionals need protest the vulnerable To the Editor: This morning (March 12) I was taking my dog Charley out and saw thebrightening in the east of the sunrise, announcing a new day. The night’s darkness was passing away. I was thinking that yesterday was the one-year...

To the Editor: We the People have had enough. We value our loved ones. If you choose to not see your loved ones in person, so be it. But don’t tell us we can’t. Go visit your grandparents, quit living in fear. You don’t know what tomorrow holds, embrace those you love now. We value the right to...
To the Editor: Things I find perplexing, perhaps even contradictory: Why would we shut down a pipeline and transport oil by truck and rail? Why would a gender who fought years for equality applaud confused men being on their sports team? How is it that people who claim to be Christians vote for a...
Kracht: 'We need to call out our government' officials To the Editor: After reading our local newspaper’s half page ad with out mayor praising our governor’s budget proposal, I decided to look into what it all entailed. I read through the proposed budget plan several times, only to find some things...
To the Editor: Our founding fathers came from monarchies in Europe where they foundthat absolute power corrupts absolutely. So they wrote theConstitution so that there would be checks and balances so no onecould rule absolutely. But since Minnesota has a law that we cannot prosecute the police,...
To the Editor: We all make mistakes in life. I have made many. A mistake is like a “teacher.” If we make the same mistake over and over and over again, we aren’t paying attention to our teacher. Do we think Washington has learned from its mistakes or are we going to continue down this same “God-...
