Letter about response to Jeff Erding’s commentary...


Mon, Jun 22nd, 2015
Posted in Harmony Letter to the Editor



To the Editor,

Sirs: I rarely read right wing extremist Jeff Erding’s diatribes, but his op-ed paean exalting the NRA as some noble patriotic organization was beyond belief. This far right organization is nothing more than a front for the billion dollar gun industry and Neo-Republican party. Woe unto anyone, right or left, that deviates from their strict orthodoxy! They regard the slaughter of innocent babies in Conn. as “collateral damage” in support of their twisted interpretation of the 2nd Amendment. They use fear as a means of collecting dues from millions of poor saps. Any sensible regulation is called a “slippery slope” towards confiscation, even when their membership agrees with things like background checks. Both I and President G. Herbert Walker Bush were members of the NRA. We turned in our membership cards when in 1993 then executive V.P. Wayne LaPierre (funny, the staying power of these guys) called the four ATF agents “Jack Booted government thugs” who were killed in the line of duty putting down the Branch Dravidian cult in Waco, Tex. You don’t call men who died for our country “thugs”, pal: got it!?

Posted in Harmony Letter to the Editor

To the Editor, To answer the Sage of Lanesboro Stan Gudmundson’s far right revisionist view of World War Two would be an exercise in futility. The lies, innuendo, leaves one breathless. I suppose the good Colonel would have us allied with Der Fue .....

Posted in Harmony Letter to the Editor

To the Editor, I’m puzzled by Rep. Greg David’s scorching condemnation of The Affordable Care Act, aka “ObamaCare.” He keeps referring to some chimerical, long suffering 16,000. His opposition flies in the face of the success of the ACA, in .....

To the Editor, I read the letter Greg Davids had in the Journal May 26 and I thought to myself, ‘good grief, Greg, isn’t there something you can be positive about?’ It appeared that you cherry-picked whatever negative you could find in th .....
