    Thoughts on graffiti

    When I opened up my Sunday edition of The News-Enterprise, I saw the color pictures taken of the graffiti that had been sprayed on railroad cars that had passed through the area and read the short side story.

    Maybe it’s just me, but I was shocked to see it appears The News-Enterprise considers vandalism of private property as “art” and the vandals who committed the destruction of the private property as “artists.”

    Living up to the calling
    It is disheartening to read and listen to all the hateful and disparaging things being said about the Church these past few weeks. It’s expected from the secular world of course, but perhaps the most heartbreaking comments are those of my own brothers and sisters in the faith who have long ago excommunicated themselves from her teachings.

    Time for GOP to unite
    If there is one thing most Republicans, many Democrats and independents can agree on is they want a change in the White House. The question now remains whether all members of the GOP will face reality, end divisiveness and bring an end to the race for 1,144 delegates. Mitt Romney has amassed more delegates than all of his opponents totals combined, more than twice the delegates of his closest opponent, and won more than twice the number of states and territories of his closest opponent.

    Voter identification required
    In reference to the letter about “voter suppression” in the March 15 edition of The News-Enterprise, I think the writer has a distorted view.
    How many photo identification cards do you have in your wallet? I have my driver’s license, retired military ID and my Veterans Administration treatment ID. On a lanyard, I have my employer’s ID. I’m pretty certain any of those would be adequate proof to get a ballot on Election Day.

    Make ID part of ‘get-out-the-vote’ effort
    It is a hame that politics are so nasty and appalling now.
    It is not a voter-suppression bill that is making a lot of news on the airwaves and in the newspapers. The bills will not stop people from voting, but will try to keep the right people voting.
    When the Democrats wanted people to vote in the 2008 election, they got them out to vote. They could use the same type of turnout to get more people to do the right thing and get a proper identification with a picture to stop voter fraud.

    It’s a spending problem
    I recently read “Not in Our Best Interests,” a March 9 letter to the editor. Being able to debate and voice one’s opinion is uniquely American and I appreciate the writer’s views. However, I disagree with his assessment.
    Washington does not have a tax problem. It has a spending problem.
