Trump shouldn’t be GOP candidate
On May 10, former President Trump had what he called a town meeting, which ended up being a Trump rally.
What scares me more is not the former president lying about just everything, it is the crowd there cheering for every lie, every piece of misinformation.
They clapped and laughed when he referenced the results of a fair and legal trial accusing him of sexual abuse and defamation of character. He referenced the Jan. 6th insurrection and claims he will pardon those convicted; he still maintains the election was rigged. He did not think Pence was in any danger that day. Each time, they applauded and cheered.
This man should not be the Republican choice for re-election. Why he has never been accused of causing the insurrection, I will never understand. When seeing the video of Jan. 6, I, along with many, could not believe this was happening in our country. How he can even be thought of as a candidate for the president is beyond me.
Hopefully, history will prove that his election was our biggest mistake. Hopefully, now, his own words will continue to incriminate him, and prove he is not fit to run for president.
Hopefully, the Republican Party will endorse a more positive influenced candidate and return to my father’s Republican Party. Only then will we return to a more unified country.

Dems want to take hard-earned money
Biden is setting up the ‘greatest wealth transfer in history’ — a warning of the ugliness to come. “The greatest wealth transfer in history is here, with familiar (rich) winners.”
That’s the New York Times, the Bible of the left, laying the groundwork for the seizure of your money.
They don’t think it’s fair that older people are rich. Baby Boomers, 60-80 years old, have accumulated $78 trillion, mostly in real estate and stocks. Don’t kid yourself. You didn’t make it by hard work, drive, brains and good judgment.
No, as the Times says, you made it in part because of “years of housing discrimination and a lack of access to financial tools and advice for people of color.
“Since the vast majority of Baby Boomers with money are white, their white children and white grandchildren will inherit the money, thus continuing racial inequality.
It’s a setup for a wealth tax. The socialist wing of the Democrat Party demands that you add up the value of all your stocks, bonds, houses, businesses and even artwork. Then, you will have to fork over a portion of that wealth every year to the government. It doesn’t matter whether your investments are up or down. Just having money is the excuse to take it off you. They don’t respect success.
Think about this. You’ve saved and invested. Done the right thing. Worked hard and plan to pass along what you’ve made. You’re a successful American. Stand up and demand the respect you deserve.
Why note gender of Twitter CEO?
The title of the article, “Musk says he’s found a woman to lead Twitter as new CEO,” in the May 12 Gazette caught my eye.
I am not a fan of Elon Musk, and this misogyny is just one more reason to support my disdain. In 2023, should it be noteworthy that a woman is a CEO?
If the person selected was a man, I guarantee that the title would simply have been “Musk finds new CEO for Twitter” and not, “Musk says he’s found a man to lead Twitter as new CEO.”
Why? Because in his mind, CEOs are men, and this is a novel situation. Further into the article is a tweet from Musk in December saying, “I will resign as CEO as soon as I find someone foolish enough to take the job.” So I guess the takeaway here is that Musk, in announcing a woman, thinks a man isn’t foolish enough to take the job.
