Biden's destructive 'pilots'

The actions and policies of the Biden administration remind me of the Japanese kamikaze pilots who would drive their planes into the decks of our ships during World War II. This action caused inestimable destruction. Notwithstanding the damage to America and its image, the Biden kamikaze 'pilots' continue to bear down on their targets, whether they be climate change, the reckless abandonment of Afghanistan, the southern border crisis or the ill effects of inflation fueled by rampant spending.

Admit jury was right on Rittenhouse

As peope on both the left and right explode over Kyle Rittenhouse's acquittal on murder charges in Wisconsin (conservatives because he killed two people, and liberals because he used a gun and killed, well, liberals) we need to pause and take a reality check.

Milk was no hero

Recently, under President Biden, the U.S. Navy officially named a ship the USNS Harvey Milk ("Navy to christen ship in honor of assassinated S.F. politician and gay pioneer Harvey Milk," Web, Nov. 5). Why? The rationale was that Milk was some sort of heroic gay civil rights leader who was unjustly kicked out of the military for being gay.

Biden's carbon-dioxide goggles

Build Back Better is a catchy name that means nothing. Isn't everything subject to decay and demise? Are there better materials available for building? Maybe, but how about new concepts? How about national bullet trains for faster passenger travel? Or universal geothermal heating and cooling, even on a neighborhood-by-neighborhood basis?

Race not a factor in Rittenhouse verdict

The contention that Black people in circumstances similar to those in which Kyle Rittenhouse found himself would have been treated differently by the law is not supported by the statistics ("Jury finds Rittenhouse not guilty in Kenosha shootings," Web, Nov. 19). In fact, in this country over 70% of homicide defendants acquitted on claims of self-defense are Black, according to William Wilbanks in "The Myth of a Racist Criminal Justice System."

All eyes on Sinema, Manchin

President Joe Biden's Build Back Better bonanza, a palimpsest of his hero FDR's Great Depression rescue, has staggered to a narrow victory in the House. It now confronts a problematic obstacle course in the Senate, the world's greatest deliberative body.

Left's efforts will fail

Gun sales have been off the charts ever since Obama came on the scene. In fact, I haven't been in a gun store in the past decade that didn't have a picture of him and the caption "Gun Salesman of the Century" beneth it.

Rittenhouse jurors got it right

I have to commend the jurors in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial for their courage and integrity. They did the difficult job of finding not-guilty a young man who has been unfairly maligned not only by the far-left news media, but by the president of the United States.

NAACP has priorities backward

Here in Virginia, it appears that calling out the Chesterfield redistricting map is a higher priority to the NAACP than the Friday night quadruple shooting in Richmond that left two children dead.

Ignoring history dooms us to repeat it

It was refreshing to read Michael McKenna's recent Commentary piece on history, specifically World War I, as a reminder of where the world is now and how we got here ("What did we commemorate on Veterans Day?" Web, Nov. 14). The abuse of history by Americans has always been an intellectual problem, and it has never been more prevalent than it is today.

Don't leave abortion up to ballot

In her op-ed "Republicans must embrace pro-life issue to win in 2022" (Web, Nov. 16) Marjorie Dannenfelser presents some very interesting Virginia gubernatorial election statistics. She reports that the loser, pro-abortion Democrat Terry McAuliffe, thought abortion was a winning issue for him and exploited it over and over again. The winner, Republican Glenn Youngkin, ran as a pro-life candidate. Eight percent of the electorate voted with the abortion question as their primary issue and gave Youngkin a 17% plurality, a winning margin.

The Biden python never stops squeezing

The Social Security folks have announced a 5.9% cost-of-living increase for those who receive benefits. So those who have worked all of their lives, played by the rules and are ready to finally enjoy life are happy. Yay! But hold on -- at the same time, Joe Biden's Medicare flunkies have announced that in 2022 there will be increases in Medicare premiums, deductibles and co-pays, to the tune of over 14%. Medicare recipients get stabbed in the back.
