LETTER: Democrats have nothing to do with soaring U.S. debt

In response to Ray Kolander’s Saturday letter:

Who caused most of that $31.4 trillion debt? It was not the Democrats. It was two unfunded tax cuts for the wealthy by Presidents George W. Bush and Donald Trump. It was a 2008 financial crisis under the Bush administration. It was a 2018 pandemic under the Trump administration. It was two unfunded wars in Iraq and Afghanistan created by the Bush administration.

Mr. Kolander, please list for us exactly what moves made by Democrats caused you to think otherwise? Tell, us Mr. Kolander, just exactly why you think “putting spending back to 2020 levels” is the responsible thing to do? What makes that so responsible? Why wouldn’t putting spending back to a 2016 level be even more responsible? Or even a 1930 level?

LETTER: No conspiracy involving Hunter’s laptop

The R-J should acknowledge that Mr. Trump’s lies, frauds, defamations, criminal indictments and convictions are exponentially worse than Hunter’s laptop being evidence or any of the other alleged Biden missteps.

LETTER: Trump tries to win Nevada

Mr. Trump advocating for tax-free tip income is definitely one approach to winning Nevada. But my tip to Mr. Trump is to pick Marco Rubio and show the diversity of the GOP.

LETTER: Red Rock development ‘compromise’ is depressing

Red Rock Canyon is a fragile natural wonder. To claim that 3,500 homes and the traffic that goes with them, and changing the nature of the watershed, will not negatively impact the area is absurd.

LETTER: Russian warships off the Florida coast

It’s strange that the mainstream media are treating Russian combat ships miles off the Florida coast as nothing to see here.

LETTER: Columnist gaslights about Donald Trump

Mr. Trump would have not won if his affair with Stormy Daniels had been made public after the “Access Hollywood” tapes in which Mr. Trump brags that he grabs women by the genitals.

LETTER: A balanced approach on the energy transition

We will never be free of fossil fuels. A balanced approach is needed. Politically doctrinaire positions on both sides won’t help us resolve the current problems.
