Shutdowns hurt more than help

The lockdowns are not working. In fact, they are hurting the economy more than they are preventing the spread of the virus. The lockdowns only delay the spread of the virus; they don't actually prevent it. The same number of people will eventually get infected. We don't know that breakthrough vaccines are safe, and there is evidence that people can get infected even after antibodies are present.

We know there was fraud

Is Joe Biden really president-elect? The answer is clearly no. No media outlet or presidential candidate can declare victory. It's up to states to certify the results. And the courts and state legislatures have a say in who becomes president.

Mothers' last attempts not in vain

Never in the recorded history of humankind has there been anything that compares to the atrocities committed by the Nazis from 1940 through 1944. Germany operated 23 concentration camps with up to 1,000 satellite camps that saw more than 6 million Jews (including 1.5 million children) and thousands of Roma exterminated.

Democracy can't afford voter fraud

There are many, including some of President Trump's supporters, who think investigating and litigating voting fraud is a waste of time and money because even if all fraudulent votes, voters and abettors were identified and prosecuted, the outcome wouldn't change. In other words, it is the result, not the preservation of election integrity, that is important to these people.

Socialist 'utopia' will disappoint

China, North Korea, Russia, Iran, Venezuela and soon the United States of America — the common denominator is communism. Welcome to the success story of socialism, where one size fits all and you will be told what size you get.

Boeing put cost savings before lives

"FAA clears Boeing 737 Max after flight-control system fixed" (Web, Nov. 18) provides an excellent overview of Boeing's problem with the 737 Max, but missing from the article are the lack of qualifications of the pilots involved in the two fatal crashes and the high probability (not possibility) that if the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System failures had occurred in the United States the aircraft would not have crashed.

Resist 'useful idiots'

As a libertarian, I admire personal freedom within our raucous and free-wheeling society more than anything else, while respecting that we must observe the rules of the American road. But those rules represent the rub, for my ideal of as much freedom within a strong and coherent society as possible is very different from the top-down autocracy the progressive wing of the Democratic Party — the very loud cohort of liberals gaining traction as Joe Biden gets his footing — wants to impose on the rest of us.

Boeing will regret decisions

In what was later described as a "culture of concealment," Boeing's decision to keep its ill-fated 737 Max planes flying — regardless of indicators, including employee warnings, that they should be grounded and serious software glitches corrected — resulted in 346 ticket buyers suffering a most horrific death ("FAA clears Boeing 737 Max after flight-control system fixed," Web, Nov. 18). Yet, couldn't those same Boeing decision-makers and/or their young families also potentially be flying on one of this aircraft's ill-fated flights?

'Harmony' means Dems must listen

Joe Biden is now calling for harmony. This follows a long career of criticizing, insulting and demonizing Republicans. Perhaps the most memorable quotation was he told Black Americans, of the GOP: "They're gonna put y'all back in chains." Clearly comments like this do not engender harmony or amity.

Trump's case no lost cause

In the Nov. 19 edition of The Washington Times, a front-page news article described the problems and pitfalls facing and being encountered by Rudolph W. Giuliani, 'America's mayor,' in leading President Trump's election challenge in court ("Giuliani takes up Trump's cause, but doesn't help in court").

Justice must be done for vote fraud

We get up every morning, go to work, pay our taxes and every four years vote for president — but now that isn't enough. Voter fraud on a scale unheard of in modern times has cast doubt on every political race in the country.

Pause the confetti, mainstream media

The mainstream media Pinocchio of the year is that Joe Biden is our president-elect. OK; if that fires them up, they can go for it. But there's a fly in their ointment. A fire hose of evidence is piling up showing that Joe didn't win the election. The Democrats' worst nightmares -- Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, a laptop, a 5-4 (sometimes a 6-3) conservative U.S. Supreme Court majority — are all in play. Then, of course, will come the inevitable Trump victory.

Stop demonizing wealthy

It appears that once again Joe Biden and the Democratic ideal of tax-and-spend plans lack understanding of how to stimulate the economy ("Divided Dems agree: Repeal Trump tax cuts for Biden's big-spending agenda," Nov. 16). They are ignoring the fact that the Republican 2017 cuts were converted into capital investing dollars for small, minority-owned businesses such as mine. It also included tax credits to bring businesses back into this country.
