America must focus on the real enemy
So, let me get this straight. Republicans are against vaccines, masks, indoor crowd limits, lockdowns, vaccine passports, etc. I guess it’s pretty clear — they are pro-pandemic. All hail sickness, death, and disruption.
Seriously, with some common sense, cooperation, and a “we’re all in this together attitude,” we could end this nightmare. That’s what it means right now to be a true American patriot.
PLEASE. Let’s all (me included) stop the blame game and demonizing the other side (whomever they might be). Let’s go after the true enemy — that damn virus.
Strict laws needed for voice cloning
Your July 18 article (“Why the Anthony Bourdain voice cloning creeps people out”) on a documentary that used a cloned version of Anthony Bourdain’s voice raises several much more serious questions than simple permission from relatives.
The implications of this technology are horrifying.
What is there to prevent a sexual predator from setting up a rendezvous with a young girl using her fake Mom or Gramma’s voice?
What is there to prevent a political rival from faking the voice of his opponent to create complete chaos and mistrust?
We’ve already seen some of these schemes in use, yet now they could be elevated to a much more sophisticated and potentially devastating level.
Governments all across the globe could become vulnerable if a strenuous denial is not enough to stop the fear mongering.
The time to pass strict laws on the application and identification of voice cloning is now, not after a single innocent child becomes a victim or another Hitler uses it to promote his lust for power and personally racist agenda.
America needs to wake up, get facts
Nearly every day in this paper’s opinion section there are letters and opinion columns bashing conservatives, Republicans, President Trump and his supporters.
Another one on July 16 (“GOP offers nothing but lies, resistance”) by Robert Karandy, a frequent letter writer.
To Mr. Karandy and his ilk, you, actually all of us are being lied to by the Democrats and the mainstream news (Democrats’ propaganda arm).
I would love to go into all of the details, but my space here is limited. Let me just say do some research. Listen to the other side. Do you know about the Arizona election audit, the Georgia election irregularities and so many other states? In fact, in all 50 states. Do you know about the Cuban protests? Why is our government not backing them? We always backed Cuban’s freedom from Communist tyranny except the last two Democrat presidents.
Check out all the protests in other countries.
Get your heads out of the sand before it is too late. Before America as we knew it is just another country ruled by tyrannical authoritarians and oligarchs. Wake up!

Tired of cartoonist’s racism and hatred
I have seen the almost daily “cartoons” by Gary Varvel that are universally unfunny slams against our current president.
On July 17, you printed a prime example of this man’s racist, hateful views.
I do not understand how your editors can think this obvious racism is appropriate for The Gazette.
