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.
Teacher shortage hurts CCSD’s kids
Aug. 6, 2014
There are several consequences of the Clark County School District’s annual teacher drought. The shortage of applicants may lead to the hiring of more borderline teachers, who look a lot better than many of the alternatives. The powerful people in Las Vegas and in the Nevada Legislature are willing to gamble with the education of other people’s children.
Congress’ failure on immigration
Aug. 6, 2014
It is hard to understand the outrageous response to the youth migrants flowing through our southern border. Most are fleeing other countries for self-preservation.
Families are a child’s first teacher
Aug. 5, 2014
All the statistics indicate that we have an education crisis in this country.
Throwing support behind the Rebels
Aug. 5, 2014
I enjoyed reading Ray Brewer’s From the Press Box column, “Could this be UNLV’s Year?”
Impeach Obama and elect Trump
Aug. 4, 2014
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has sent emails stating that House Speaker John Boehner’s lawsuit against the president isn’t a political stunt and that impeachment proceedings are imminent.
Monorail marks 10 years of waste
Aug. 4, 2014
I read with interest that the Las Vegas Monorail was holding events to celebrate its 10th anniversary.
Don’t be boring as you grow old
Aug. 4, 2014
A big hurray for Gina Barreca’s July 25 column “I won’t take growing old sitting down.” I knew I was never going to be the “grandparent” my kids had growing up. I was going to embrace my spirit until the end.
Palestinians are pawns of Hamas
Aug. 3, 2014
In response to Brian Greenspun’s July 27 column “Seeing the facts in a world of death,” allow me to state that he is absolutely correct.
