Mrs. Neyenhuis

By Dan Terbeest

Once again Mrs. Nyenhuis has shown us her blind loyalty to the current president has rendered her oblivious to the facts. She exhibits loyalty to a leader that you only see in followers of Nazism or ISIS. How someone can be so loyal to a president who has failed on so many levels is beyond comprehension, but that kind of loyalty requires little thought or intelligence. Is Mrs. Nyenhuis miss-informed or deliberately lying? There were no sources or statistics cited to back up her claims, she just pulled them out of thin air. No uber-liberal is in any position to wag their finger at anyone about Republicans dismissing laws they don’t like. I’m not saying Republicans don’t do it, but her implication that it is only Republicans that do it is a blatant lie. What about “sanctuary” cities? What about executive orders designed to side-step congress? What about using personal email for government business? What about Rahm Emmanuelle hiding evidence of crooked cops for over a year? All glaring examples of Democrats dismissing laws they don’t like.

As far as gun manufacturers being responsible for gun violence, why not knife manufacturers? Rope manufacturers? How about baseball bats? Cars have been used to run down people, let’s make GM responsible! Hammers have been used as murder weapons, make Stanley pay up! Where do you draw the line? Suppose somebody died of a heart attack in Lanesboro, obesity was a factor in this person’s death, and they were a regular customer of the White Front Café. Using the logic (or lack of) making the gun manufacturer liable, that would make the owners of the White Front responsible in part for this man’s death. Makes perfect sense doesn’t it! If you are angry about guns it would be wise to put your energy, as far as punishment goes, into the person pulling the trigger, not making the trigger. Most reasonable people will understand that. You cannot pick and choose industries you don’t like to apply additional liability to. Just because you don’t like an industry doesn’t mean it’s bad. Maybe her judgment is bad?

Mrs. Neyenhuis, you have talked before about the voters not giving Obama a Democratic congress to work with on many occasions. You have even opined about what the world would be like if Al Gore had been President. You need to deal with reality. The all lost! You make up excuses about the Democrats not showing up to vote as if it somehow de-legit .....

Response to Mr. Erding

Chatfield, MN I never cease to be amazed at the conservative rights’ nearly total detachment from reality. Jeff Erding’s response to Ms. Nyenhuis is a good example of that. He makes three unsupportable, inaccurate claims, but space will only .....

Posted in All Commentary

When the history of this year’s presidential campaign is written, one of its more remarkable features will be that candidates of both parties feel it necessary to talk about income inequality. Surely that makes this a watershed moment. The issue .....

Does anyone else feel really tired? I don’t necessarily mean sleepy tired, although there’s something to that. I find myself craving sleep more and more as this winter has finally settled in to actually being, um, winter. It’s hard to get in .....
