George Will helps balance liberal slant

It seems certain Trump loyalists have taken a cue from college campus crybabies, who seek and often find administrative support shielding them from ideologies that might challenge the liberal world views that dominate higher education.
In their narrow view, it’s unpatriotic to criticize President Trump; allegiance to him is the litmus test of conservatism. The blistering criticism he receives on The Daily Gazette’s Opinion page is proof of this paper’s liberal bias.
I would say that any real or imagined tilt to the left in the platform provided in Section C is more than counterbalanced by conservative heavyweight George Will.
Your Opinion page’s on-going mix-up is interesting, entertaining, enlightening and when George weighs in, educational.
His columns can be likened to mini tutorials in history, math, economics and political science, forged with the skills of a master wordsmith.
Throwing George Will into this verbal slugfest compares to recruiting a Sumo wrestler to help settle a score in a school yard rumble.

True Christians will vote for Trump

Democrats support a clean environment but not the life in the womb. I voted for Trump because he’s not for abortion, I respect him for this.
As a Christian, I won’t vote for a party who believes in abortion. I vote with my morals. God comes first. Abortion is killing.
All I have heard is abortion is a choice for women. Where are my rights? I’m not given a choice. My taxes pay for something I’m against.
The Democratic Party has given the president a hard time since he became president. Why? He’s not a politician. There’s hatred among our leaders. Having a two party system isn’t working. We need another strong party. Let’s call it Reliable.
Our children have no role models to look up to like I did.
Parents, you have to be the role models for your children. Give them spirituality, morals, and love.
This will make them productive and successful citizens when they grow up. You cannot trust this world. We are becoming a world who is abandoning God, becoming materialistic, greedy, and selfish. There are so many lost souls walking around today.
Vote for life in November. If you don’t, you’re not a Christian.

Virginia you may feel abortion is wrong… but that only applies to YOU. Your feelings are emotionally based.
If killing is so wrong then why does society:

1. Killing of its free citizens of color with near impunity!

2. Continue Killing its inmates when DNA evidence has freed many.

3. Killing of foreign soldiers in war.

4. Killing in self defense

5. Killing animals to eat

6. Killing animals for trophies.

7. Killing for the fun of it.

So Virginia society and its laws sanction
“Needed” or “neccesary” killing.

Virginia there are many reasons to control our reproductive proclivities. Abortion is a personal decision between a woman and her God. Like all personal medical decisions ITS NOT DEBATABLE!!!
Look at this world of misery and woe due to OVERPOPULATION!! Look at the squalid poverty forced on woman and children due to unwanted pregnancies…No government can legislate its view of morality.
All loss of life is tragic. More tragic however is a life lived in poverty, ignorance and want!

William Marincic

Virginia DelGallo Thank you for a well written letter. My whole family were democrats. I voted for Bill Clinton twice then came the internet and I was able to see the truth, not the truth as told by the National News, ABC, NBC, CBS. I saw that the news was slanted and I switched parties. The democrats no longer hold my values, just the opposite. You will be attacked by people like Jewell, ignore them, they are the epitome of the democrat party. God Bless.

Robert F. Jewell

….”I used to be a democrat”…. same words Benedict Arnold uttered to his new found financiers the Crown
History exposes people who forsake their honor, oaths and countrymen for money to be considered traitors to all three.
Democrats love people not money.

William Marincic

Democrats love people so much they burn down their businesses, drag them out of their cars and attack them at restaurants for having a different opinion.

Terry Ryczek

Virginia what a greatly thought out and truthful letter. Just as William said pay no attention to people like Jewell. The things you speak of are holy Spirit driven and beyong his understanding. George Washington said it best this country will survive if it remains moral. We have lost much of that morality. The democrats have come put and said they don’t need or want God. This weekend there’s a great rally in D.C. many will be gathering to seek God and pray for this nation. We need a lot of that. Jewell will insult and demean but he just doesn’t matter. Keep the faith.

Robert F. Jewell

Btw Terrance….Your remarks were removed.
No more names Terry or I’ll have to bother poor Mark. Let’s be imaginative in protraying the flaws in each other’s philosophies…no posts from fox…

Terry Ryczek

Calling names again. Read the passage in Mathhew concerning the Lords prayer. It was in front of many.

Robert F. Jewell

Yes…🥺 it’s that heathen in me…

Matt 6/ 1-6 especially for you Terrance #6…his words…

Terry Ryczek

Again you are in an area where you are clueless. If you knew the word and more importantly the author you would not act the way you do or say the things you do. You would also understand the constitution and bill of rights.

Robert F. Jewell

YOU CANNOT CODIFY MORALITY ONLY LAW…
THE CODIFIED LAW OF THIS LAND RECOGNIZES A WOMAN RIGHT TO SELF DETERMINATION.
THE RELIGIOUS CHRISTIAN MULLAHS WOULD TURN AMERICAN WOMEN INTO THEIR HUSBANDS PROPERTY…just like in ARABIA…
AND MANY OTHER SUB CIVILIZED COUNTRIES!!

Terry Ryczek

Correct morality comes from having a knowledge of right and wrong. An absolute truth which comes from the Bible. The founding fathers knew this and that’s where our great constitution and Bill of rights came from. It’s what make people inherently free. America won the war, a war that never should have been won, against totalitarian England. Why on earth would you ever want to go back to something (socialism) like that. Live Free or Die. Something far above your understanding
.

Robert F. Jewell

YOUR ABSOLUTE TRUTH SHAMAN…
Your kind burned women at the stake and imprisoned Galileo….
instituted the inquisition,
encouraged and participated in 900 suicides with Righteousness Jimmy Jones
Accepts Falwell jr. pilfering his flock while his pool boy plunders his wife while he’s watching…

So much for your tribe of “Moral Leaders”!!🤮

Terry Ryczek

Again you are in an area where you are clueless. If you knew the word and more importantly the author you would not act the way you do or say the things you do. You would also understand the constitution and bill of rights.
That passage is only one instance of many about prayer. One example in 2 chapter of Acts when there were 120 in the upper room praying together. That’s when they were filled with the Holy Spirit. That’s something you should seek.

Terry Ryczek

BTW not my king. Your kind burn down buildings, riot, loot, harras people out to eating dinner, pull people out of vehicles beat them and send them to hospitals, try to assasinate police, rape their own, turn on their own (mayor Wheeler in Portland)…
Need more?

Robert F. Jewell

Who cares?? Trump was impeached. Obama was elected…ohhh TWICE!!
Trump will be jailed!!

Terry Ryczek

The impeachment will be rescinded when the congress gets flipped.
Obama was totally involved with the russia hoax as was Biden. More to come stay tuned.

Martha Bencic

“materialistic, greedy, and selfish” is exactly what Trump is. If you’re a Christian with a brain, you realize that rich people will ALWAYS have access to abortion and they will use it as they always have. That man is a monster, a rapist and has arranged many an abortion.

And if you’re an American, you value separation of church and state and freedom of religion. Christianity isn’t the only religion and white isn’t the only skin color.

Robert F. Jewell

The spot on your floor was the black goo from your venomous words…

Robert F. Jewell

Obviously you don’t even know your own American history nor the separation of church and state…it’s there if you’ve been to school…

Terry Ryczek

Oh my, I learned American history when it was actually taught in schools.
It’s you and Martha that need to read ORIGINAL documents. Start with John Adams. Read what DeTochville had to say you’ll learn a lot there….maybe.

Terry Ryczek

Don’t forget the Mayflower compact. Please look up the letter Jefferson wrote to the Dansbury Baptist church you will find once and for all you have the “separation of church and state” BACKWARDS! Now learn accurate history not rewritten history.

Robert F. Jewell

Like your white supremacy theory’s…
Funny how people with your bent minds attempt to rewrite history to fit your personal narratives.
Like the national socialists of 1930s Germany you seek an alternative historical narrative to give legitimacy to your twisted views of race and religion. You and your followers will be dealt with next year.🌊🗣

Robert F. Jewell

GO to schools other than creationism and immoral majority Christian leaders..
🙄 dead from the neck up…

Robert F. Jewell

How about your savior following the laws of the constitution… looks like he’s lining up for a second impeachment…doesn’t matter though…he’ll be in jail or pushing daises before long…then who you gonna pray to…Demonic Stephanik??

Terry Ryczek

You truly are clueless you call people names and then you whine when someone hints at calling you a name typical Democrat accuse people of what they’re doing you make assumptions about people you know nothing about coming across like some know-it-all which you are not

Robert F. Jewell

Older…more experienced, more traveled, more educated, more worldly, more empathetic, more sorrowful , more generous, more…INTROSPECTIVE…more willing to reason, more likely to have little patience with evil self serving organizations!!
Go Joe!!🌊🌊

Terry Ryczek

Just because you’re in a parking lot doesn’t make you a car.
TRUMP 2020 in a landslide.

Even fan duel is taking bets on the debate (if Biden even shows) on who will win. It could get real ugly for sleepy Joe. Will he even know where he is/ You can bet the yes/no over under.

Terry Ryczek

The DOJ has opened an investigation of Hunter Biden. One of the things is using Air Force 2 for personal business. Also more declassified documents to be released today concerning the russia hoax investigation. I read the Clintons need to get a good lawyer.
