Education must include critical race
Regarding Shirley Guidarelli’s April 19 letter (“Let’s do something about what’s wrong”) in The Daily Gazette, I will fight to the death in support of everything you hate!
Every reading, writing and arithmetic lesson from pre-K through high school senior year must include critical race theory as its content.

Bishops lack moral status to criticize
Regarding The Gazette April 29 article, “Catholic bishops threaten Biden’s Communion:” Are you kidding me?
With the disaster of a track record in covering up their pedophile priest culture that resulted in the closure of countless churches, the CCB should worry more about attracting new parishioners rather than trying to take a higher moral ground. Quite frankly, they can’t pass the smell test.
The CCB should build on the fact that President Biden continues to practice the faith rather than trying to make a political statement. Let’s see, “Separation of Church and State.”
Having been brought up Catholic and understanding the hypocrisy the hierarchy continues to dish out makes me have less faith in the leadership than the little I already have.
Free will is one of the cornerstones of the religion. What we believe and act upon are personal choices, not to be criticized or commented on by those that preach it’s OK unless they disagree with it. If President Biden or any other Catholic elected official wants to receive communion, that’s between them and their own conscience, not from a bunch of church leaders that don’t like their politics.
Maybe the CCB should use the old adage of KISS (keep it simple stupid) by modernizing the “Ten Commandments” and try to redeem what goodness can come from the Catholic Church.
Threatening to deny communion because of what a politician believes has nothing to do with religion. It’s an attempt at exerting their power based upon a moral ground they already lost.
Give us all a greater voice in decisions
Americans are tired of the rich getting richer, hiding their money offshore and paying no taxes.
It falls on the little guy, and we have to beg Washington for help.
It’s time for the people to have a “real” say in where the money comes from and where it goes.
Lawmakers should have 90 days to bring a bill up for a vote. If they can’t get it done, it goes on the ballot in November for the voters to decide.
Like the infrastructure bill, bridges in this country are literally falling down, countless miles of antiquated pipes are failing on a daily basis, the water in Flint, Mich., is poisoning people, the power grid in California has caused fires and death.
Voters should decide where to spend money. The people who run our lives have liberal compensation packages that they”gave themselves. Let people decide when and if county, state and federal employees get a raise. I would love to raise my Social Security check.
Jan. 6 shows how divided this country is. “A house divided will fall.” Putin’s dream is coming true. Republicans are crying that Democrats are going to pack the Supreme Court, yet they wouldn’t give President Obama’s choice a hearing because it was an election year.
They rammed through a third justice just before the election.
The current Republican Party is in critical condition and yet they still idolize the man who inflicted what could end up being a fatal wound to the GOP.
Stefanik can lose, have her own Big Lie
It is my understanding Elise Stefanik is considering running for governor in the next election.
I think she should, so after she gets defeated, she can say that the election is rigged, and she can have her very own Big Lie and dress it up in pretty little Republican clothes.
