Thumbs down to trying to get rid of post office

What is with Trump trying to get rid of the U.S. post office? He wants to get rid of vote by mail, it is easier to steal another election without it. Our stable genius. Don’t listen to Dr. Trump about injecting Clorox.

Thumbs up to Lou Andrew’s letter

Thumbs Up to Lou Andrew’s letter to the editor in Saturday’s paper, “There are needed socialist functions of government.” This list is longer than that and would include Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare. Without these retirement supports, many in our country would live in poverty as they grow old. All of us as workers have paid into these “socialist” retirement programs all our working lives. Government is necessary and exists to ensure the society and people it represents are served.

Thumbs up to Pat Fischer’s letters

Thumbs up to recent letters by Pat Fischer! She also does a great facebook job in defense of her positions. I get a kick when she smokes out the pessimists that are too fake, nutty and timid to write their own letters. You Go Girl! Very refreshing to hear many more other conservative voices recently also. Good to know the silent majority is still out there!

Thumbs down to people camping in mountains

Thumbs down to all the people camping in the mountains. It’s against the law. Totally inconsiderate of the people working in healthcare that are working overtime to help all the sick people. Stay home. Stay safe.
