Cowards in Congress are enabling a charlatan

Trump One Year Fact Check

A while back, the Standard-Examiner published a satirical letter from me about a little old lady,...

Trump needs to be judged by words and actions

Trump Inauguration

The Jan. 17 letter to the editor from Susan Foss of Mountain Green states that we should judge President Trump for his accomplishments and not his words (“Judge Trump by his accomplishments, not his words”). My wife and I take an opposite view. Let us count the ways: 1. He mocks...

President Trump is not stupid or mentally unstable

Trump

Some liberal Democrats have latched onto the idea that President Trump is not only evil and shouldn’t have been elected, he’s not smart enough to be president nor is he mentally stable. They have been beating this drum for over a year, hoping desperately and working feverishly to prove...

Where will older people find $1 a day to eliminate the federal debt?

Yellen Congress

Congratulations, Robert E. Nelson, that you are able to contribute an extra $100 a month to reduce the federal debt. You suggested everyone contribute a $1 a day to eliminate the federal debt (”If everyone contributed $1 a day, we could eliminate the federal debt,” Jan. 14). However,...

Cowards in Congress are enabling a charlatan

Trump One Year Fact Check

A while back, the Standard-Examiner published a satirical letter from me about a little old lady, secretary of the homeowners association, who was outvoted for HOA president by a newcomer, rich celebrity (“A story about a little old lady, a celebrity and a homeowners association,” March...

Judge Trump by his accomplishments, not his words

Trump speaks

I am getting the idea that many people are judging Donald Trump by his less-than-presidential language and tweets. Well, all I can say is "By their fruits ye shall know them." Neil Gorsuch. Tax reform. Obama individual mandate repeal. Deregulation. Cutting government waste. Border security. Defeat...

Register as a member of the Constitution Party

US Constitution

Earlier this month, a letter to the editor suggested that voters show their displeasure with the Democratic and Republican parties by changing their political affiliation to "non-affiliated" (“Register as an unaffiliated voter this year,” Jan. 2, Calene Van Noy). Of course, when voting...

Romney needs to run as an independent

Campaign 2016 Romney

It was kind of fun to be mentioned by another reader, Bob Burns, in his Jan. 4 letter to the editor encouraging folks to get involved with one of the two main parties. We agree on getting involved, but I maintain that the Republican and Democratic parties are fueling the toxic tribalism that is...

If everyone contributed $1 a day, we could eliminate the federal debt

Trump-3

A year or two ago, a lady wrote you a letter expressing her concern about the federal debt. I was also thinking about that and wondering why no one was doing anything about it. The United States is said to be the richest nation in the world, and we can't clear up a debt that has to be affecting the...

Trump's rhetoric, actions recall Benito Mussolini

Trump prisons

I'm no history professor, but President Donald Trump's rhetoric, actions, and especially mannerisms remind me a lot of what I have seen and read about Benito Mussolini, Il Duce. For those buffs of science fiction, how about Khan of Star Trek fame with his self-proclaimed superior intellect? Raymond...

Vote for "Big John" Lewis as America's Favorite Crossing Guard

Crossing guard

It has been a pleasure for my wife and me to get to know John "Big John" Lewis, the crossing guard at Wasatch Elementary School, over the last few years as we go for daily walks. He is a delightful and caring individual and does this job only because he cares about the kids. We are voting for him...
