States working together at border
July 25, 2014
Great, it’s about time Texas Gov. Rick Perry put 1,000 National Guard troops on his border with Mexico. What is Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer waiting for? She’s been complaining about illegal immigrants in her state for a while.
Impeach Obama to put our nation first
July 25, 2014
First off, I would like to commend Brian Greenspun for the way he has run the Sun all these years. Since moving here the end of 2003, I have subscribed to the local papers. During that time, the Sun has published more than a dozen of my letters despite them being mostly in opposition to the left.
Immigrants must be sent home
July 24, 2014
If a citizen breaks the law and no law enforcement action is taken, what message does that send to everyone else? This is exactly what’s happening with our immigration laws in America. That’s why my deputies encounter many immigrants in the country illegally who admit to being deported as many as 15 times. The laws apply to American citizens, but if you’re in the country illegally, it appears the laws do not apply and there are few, if any, real consequences.
Congress acts as a check on president
July 24, 2014
The writer of the Saturday letter “John Boehner should be fired” doesn’t seem to understand the duty of Congress.
Desalination can be a water solution
July 23, 2014
Here is an idea for getting more water for Nevada: Pump seawater from the California coast and desalinate it here before distributing it as fresh water.
America’s energy independence
July 23, 2014
The criticism President Barack Obama is facing over the Ukraine situation is misplaced. Truth be told, at this point there isn’t much he can do.
Breaking up with a Limbaugh fan
July 23, 2014
Thank you for running the July 15 letter about shaming radio networks that air Rush Limbaugh.
Changes to gun laws are needed
July 21, 2014
We just witnessed another senseless mass shooting that took the lives of four children, two adults and injured a child.
Lawyers certainly aren’t asleep
July 21, 2014
It appears America has too many attorneys. Every time you open a newspaper, visit the Internet or turn on the TV, someone is suing someone for who knows what.
Offering thanks, and perspective
July 20, 2014
I have a blister on my finger. My wife had breast cancer. Two police officers and a civilian were murdered by psychopaths doing nothing wrong.
Washington won’t listen to us
July 20, 2014
I love my country, but fear it’s being destroyed. Just over the horizon you can hear the rumbling of discontent.
Investors shouldn’t get free water
July 19, 2014
Did the Southern Nevada Water District read the story in the July 8 Sun about an alfalfa business in Utah (“From exporters to owners: Thanks to more favorable growing conditions here, China’s hungry cattle feasting on alfalfa grown on Utah farm”)? Chinese investors are buying up farms to send alfalfa to their country.
John Boehner should be fired
July 19, 2014
Freedom of speech in our country has brought many downright rude and disrespectful people into the public light.
Until debt do us part
July 19, 2014
I found the article in Monday’s Sun, “Many over 50 are still saddled with student loans,” very sad personally.
Listen to Rush; you might like it
July 18, 2014
It is obvious to me that the letter writer who says “Shame on those who air Limbaugh” (July 15) has never or rarely listened to Rush Limbaugh, or has a very closed mind.
