Democrats to blame for inflation and job losses
Well I hope all voters might just realize what a mistake it was to allow the Democrats to get control of the presidency and the House of Representatives.
We are now facing inflation at 5.4% in 2021 instead of the 2.3% under President Trump; gas prices that are 90 cents/gallon higher than under President Trump; Biden has shut down the Canadian pipeline, costing thousands of jobs both Canadian and American as well as signing executive orders that make us more dependent on foreign oil, when we were oil independent under President Trump. Biden has made a horrible mistake leaving Afghanistan without any plan and without discussions with our allies and he has made a disaster of the southern border. His policies promoting sentiment against police have created a platform for violence in many cities such as Portland, Seattle, Chicago, and New York.
Enough! If we, as Americans, allow this kind of leadership to continue we are signing our death warrant. Please vote against these incompetent people in 2022 and 2024. We must vote out Biden, Harris, Pelosi and Schumer and elect strong American leadership with true American values and not these socialistic views that are destroying our country.

Biden, Harris distrusted Trump, not vaccine
This is in response to Mr. Zanger’s Sept. 15 letter to the editor (“Biden and Harris sowed vaccine doubt.”) Mr. Zanger should have done some fact checking before he wrote his letter. According to Snopes, Politifacts, AP News and Reuters:
In a Sept. 6, 2020, interview Harris did not refuse to take the vaccine, nor did she discourage others from taking it, but she said she did not trust then-U.S. President Donald Trump’s vaccine roll-out policy or his statements about COVID-19. She said she would listen to medical experts such as Dr. Anthony Fauci but would not take Trump’s word for it.
Biden stated: “Americans have had to endure President Trump’s incompetence and dishonesty, when it comes to testing and personal protective equipment. We can’t afford to repeat those fiascos when it comes to a vaccine. … Let me be clear: I trust vaccines, I trust scientists, but I don’t trust Donald Trump, and at this moment, the American people can’t either. Last week, Senator Harris and I laid out three questions this administration’s going to have to answer to assure the American people that politics will not play a role whatsoever in the vaccine process. If Donald Trump can’t give answers and the administration can’t give answers to these three questions, the American people should not have confidence.”
Basically, they stated they didn’t trust Trump. A little fact-checking goes a long way from spreading fake news and fake facts.
Hey, President Biden: Give peace a chance
Sept. 21 is International Day of Peace, established by the United Nations in 1981 and unanimously declared a day of non-violence and cease fire by the U.N. General Assembly 20 years ago. Even the United States voted for it.
I’m hoping that President Biden follows protocol and declares a day of cease fire and non-violence. It would probably save us a couple of billion dollars and might make the world a safer place. Some corporations like Raytheon might say it’s a slippery slope and that other Days Of Peace might follow, leading to a loss in excessive greedy military-industrial corporate profits and CEO bonuses.
I’m willing to take that chance.
Locally we can try a day of non-violence and peace. It will probably be nice, happy and peaceful.
There is also a minute of silence at noon around the world for those who would like to join in.
Hey, President Biden: Give it a try, at least for one day. International Day of Peace.
Then, if it works, try another day, then another.
