Cosby, O.J. should celebrate together
Well I see Bill Cosby got out of prison on June 30.
Perhaps he should get a hold of O.J. Simpson and they can go out for dinner and drinks.
GOP puts American democracy at stake
I’m glad The Daily Gazette prints letters to the editor representing a wide range of political views.
It gives readers the opportunity to see the absurd claims and conspiracy theories put forth by the radical right.
All too often the writer makes nebulous statements such as “…everyone knows…” or “…history proves…” or “…it’s in the record…” without ever backing what they say with facts.
All too often their source of information is Fox News or some other radical right outlet.
Unfortunately, if they are not willing to listen to facts as presented by mainstream news outlets or to agree with courtroom decisions or to accept the results of scientiﬁc studies, then they will ignorantly blather on.
Failure to recognize the seriousness of the Jan. 6 insurrection, to determine its causes and who was involved, is an example of their blind stupidity.
The GOP spent millions unsuccessfully trying to blame Hillary for Benghazi but voted down a similar investigation of Jan. 6.
GOP opposition to anything the Democrats propose does not represent doing what’s best for our country.
It clearly represents their overwhelming desire to regain power.
Voter suppression laws in GOP controlled states do not strengthen democracy.
They encourage a dictatorship, an autocratic form of government.
We must all recognize that actions have consequences, that what we do today affects what happens tomorrow.
As the Bible says, be wary of false prophets. Our democracy is at stake.
