Don’t judge all by despicable acts of few
I consider a recent column in The News-Enterprise by a local reporter to be so egregious, it begs a challenge. There’s no denying the Capitol attack was despicable, but in her myopic viewpoint, horrible Trump supporters are destroying the nation’s character.
Quick-to-judge people rarely wait for all the facts such as the presence of Antifa and BLM agitators. She can’t appreciate their justifiable outrage over a stolen election. There’s plenty of evidence supporting that claim, but in a fallen nation, Republicans weren’t allowed to make their case.
Trump’s the most honest, transparent, productive leader of my 75-year lifetime – yet he loses to a mentally challenged Swamp Pariah. C’mon, man!
Trump’s followers are the most patriotic, law-abiding citizens ever. One unfortunate incident and they’ve destroyed our image.
Let’s look at the Democrats’ “character.” Nancy’s Pelosi put us through hell with contrived, baseless hoaxes. Collusion, impeachment, “systemic” racism, then another impeachment with Trump halfway out the door. If that isn’t pure hate, what is?
Horrific destruction by BLM and Antifa mobs were labeled “peaceful protests.” Their media stooges assisted them with lies 24/7, completely unsubstantiated – each segment starting “Trump’s a racist” ad nauseum, totally without validation.
Pelosi tore her copy of Trump’s State of the Union address in front of 30 million viewers; Adam Schiff made a mockery of sacred impeachment procedures; Jerry Nadler claims Antifa imaginary; and Maxine Waters “incites” Democrats to harass Trump supporters. Valid corruption and sexual harassment claims against Joe Biden were swept under the rug by complicit media, while a false sexual claim against now Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh almost destroys that honorable man’s career.
Democratic legislators cheered when infanticide was approved – allowing a baby surviving an abortion to die on the delivery table (but kept comfortable).
I question how much this writer really knows about Trump’s achievements. I hope she, and other misguided millenials, are prepared for serious voter remorse.
Jan. 20, 2021, is a dark day in our history. We’ll transition from “one nation under God” to “one Godless nation.”
Maybe now McConnell can focus on USPS
It was disappointing to see that Sen. Mitch McConnell could not find it within himself to support more than $600 to Americans in need but was quite happy to send millions upon millions to other nations as well as sheer American nonsense. I have not been a supporter of the government doling out money we don’t actually have but since they were doing it anyway it might as well have gone to people who, for the most part, work for their money.
Now that he will have almost no influence on important issues, maybe he could begin with something easy like getting the U.S. Postal Service organization to send mail directly from Radcliff to Elizabethtown or vice versa without it having to go to Louisville first. My son who lived in Illinois for ten years told me for mail to go 20 miles to the next closest town it had to go two hours to St. Louis first. Perfect example of government incompetence.
While Sen. McConnell has the last four years been accomplishing important stuff thanks to President Donald Trump, who he stabbed in the back, he in 30 years has not been able to fix out government-run postal service while Amazon and Fed Ex run circles around them. That is just one example of the difference between him and someone who wanted to make America great again.
Yes, I have voted for Sen. McConnell every election he ran always knowing then, as well as now, he’s better than a Democrat, but I also always knew not by much.
