GOP wasting time squabbling

After six years of President Obama's failed and destructive policies, including the early troop withdrawal in Iraq and years of plotting secret deals with Cuba and Iran, it is clear that Mr. Obama deserved neither the Nobel Peace Prize nor to be elected president -- twice.

Fallout of 'leading from behind'

The promised "fundamental transformation" by President Obama apparently means using the power of his office to punish the military and national security of America for alleged sins of over 200 years of 'imperialism' and enslavement. In the past six-plus years many such steps have been taken, including slashing the U.S. Navy to its 1917 size and the Army to 1940-level numbers.

Conservatives sick of wheeler dealers

If we had a Senate majority leader who provided real leadership, the Republicans could have used reconciliation in the Senate to defund President Obama's amnesty, health-care and Planned Parenthood endeavors, giving the Democrats a dose of their own bad medicine that has harmed the lives and health of many Americans.

Politics pushed USPS into red

In a commentary piece on the U.S. Postal Service's plans to upgrade its vehicle fleet, Ken Blackwell called the Postal Service "the poster child for government waste" ("How the Postal Service continues to burn money," Web, Aug. 27). He's wrong on the merits and the facts.

Martland's treatment unsurprising

The U.S. Army discharges decorated and brave Sgt. First Class Charles Martland for having the temerity to stand up for young children in Afghanistan who are regularly raped and sexually abused by perverted old scumbags on an American military base.

We're not alone

Water deposits have been found on Mars. Really, is this such a great revelation? For years, astronomers have focused on ice formations at Mars' poles. Given the recent photographs from Voyager, we know that Pluto contains water. Common sense tells us that water is not indigenous to Earth only.

Injustice wrong in all forms

Many people who fight for the ethical treatment of animals also work to protect people, including unborn babies. Why do some just assume otherwise? Surely no one would say, for example, that people who go to bars care more about beer than babies, or that movie-goers are wasting money on movies while unborn babies die.

Shariah, Constitution incompatible

When presidential contender Ben Carson stated recently that he would not approve of electing a Muslim as president of the United States, both Republican and Democrat politicians jumped on him. Challenger Ted Cruz reminded him that the U.S. Constitution itself says there shall be no religious test for public office.

Fund, update GMD now

These days, you can't open the newspaper without seeing stories about the Iranian nuclear program ("Iranians provided own samples for nuclear site inspection," Web, Sept. 21). But as we focus on Iran, let's remember that the greater threat to the U.S. homeland comes from North Korea.

Reinstate ethical Green Beret

In World War II, America sent its finest men and women to oppose Hitler's tyranny. Had we not responded to Winston Churchill's pleas for the United States' involvement, it is conceivable that Europe, and certainly many more of the Jewish people, would have perished under the Nazis.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Fox, CNN unfair in debates

Fox News is not a conservative news organization, though many of its commentators, including Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly, seem to be conservatives. Republican presidential contender Sen. Ted Cruz was on Steven Colbert's "Late Show" Monday night, but when watching "Fox and Friends" Tuesday morning, all the hosts mentioned was media darling Carly Fiorina being on Jimmy Fallon's show. Not once did they mention Mr. Cruz's appearance with Mr. Colbert. However, when Donald Trump was on "The Late Show," Fox News had a story on it.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Media-hound persona hurts Rand Paul

Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky is attracting a lot of attention as a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination. And when he sticks to a topic such as opposition to the Patriot Act, he sounds credible. But when he veers off-topic with ad-hominem charges against fellow Republicans and others, or when he downplays the dangers of drugs, he commands media attention more for outrageous assumptions and conclusions than for accuracy.
