Money will keep influencing politics
June 30, 2014
The front page of the June 20 Sun has Harry Reid rightfully quoted as opposing billionaires such as the Koch brothers’ ability to “buy America” with their billions of dollars contributing to Republican interests.
Some people don’t want democracy
June 30, 2014
At some time or other, the United States has backed a coup or an assassination, or used military force to set up a failed government, which always turned out to be corrupt.
Other problems Democrats cause
June 29, 2014
I commend Carmine D. in the online comments about the June 22 letter, “Democrats aren’t for the people now,” for giving us a single sentence that pinpoints one of the major societal problems being created by Democrats’ policies.
Public should get part of oil profits
June 29, 2014
To all Americans who have become so naive about oil in our country: We are the only country in which oil rights go to the private sector.
Get our Marine back from Mexico
June 29, 2014
Enough talk about a U.S. Army sergeant who deserted his post and possibly defected to the enemy. Enough talk about the release of five terrorists who could lead yet another attack on our country.
How solar can help us and NV Energy
June 28, 2014
A recent article said the Public Utilities Commission may be considering whether homes with solar power are paying their fair share (whatever that means).
The need to reduce water consumption
June 28, 2014
According to Monday’s story “Arizona could face cutbacks in water from Colorado River,” Phoenix and Tucson will soon face water supply shortages if the draw from Lake Mead continues to significantly exceed the amount of water flowing into it. But the problem extends to all users of Colorado River water, not just these two cities.
Talking can help someone grieve
June 27, 2014
When a person dies and the ones left behind are grieving, don’t evade the subject.
Too many beggars along the Strip
June 27, 2014
I have been visiting Las Vegas for the past 20 years, and I am getting very concerned about the number of beggars and vagrants on the bridges and walkways on the Strip.
Guns, criminals, defense and law
June 27, 2014
In reference to the Sunday letter “Guns have no place in modern society,” I agree with the statement saying semiautomatic weapons should be restricted and not given to just anyone; however, I do think guns have a place in our society today. They are a great tool of defense in the right hands.
Some lawmakers ignore constituents
June 26, 2014
Doyle McManus overlooked the obvious in his Monday column “A voters’ revolt, but against what?”
U.S. foreign policy lacks assertiveness
June 26, 2014
John Kerry seems like a fine gentleman. He speaks well and answers questions well, but his visits to countries in the Middle East hardly ever get results.
Get serious about bullying in CCSD
June 26, 2014
We send our children to school each day with the thought that they will be safe, and we put our trust as parents in the Clark County School District to do its best to protect our kids from bullying while they are at school to keep them from harm.
Science and homosexuality
June 25, 2014
Never in my life have I heard about or read of solid scientific evidence supporting the link between genes and homosexuality. In all my years of being a student and taking scientific courses, I learned of no connection between genetics and the choices we make in our everyday lives in determining who or what we become.
Proper etiquette for everyone
June 25, 2014
As an avid cyclist and regular rider of the Pittman Wash Trail, I’m compelled to reply to the Saturday letter “Proper etiquette for bicyclists.” I’m in full agreement that bicyclists should ride in control and always yield to pedestrians. I find the vast majority of users, regardless of travel mode, do practice great “share the trail” etiquette.
