Are You Certain of Your Political Party Allegiance?

Dear Editor, Are you aware of consequences of too much allegiance? I was born into the most Democratic family that ever existed. Anyone running as a democrat was sure to get my family’s votes if the opponent was republican. The explanation given to me as a child seemed logical. Democrats were all good people, and […]

Dear Editor, The Washington Post reports that Common Core was originally promoted and presented as a way of raising academic standards for all children around the country. But is it? Now being implemented in 45 of 50 states, Common Core standards are already in use – and in at least one state, those results are […]

Dear Editor, Our local political expert, analyst, critic continues to submit his weekly Fox News-like letters complaining about President Obama and Democrats blaming them for everything wrong with our government. He provides percentages, statistics, and other information, hopefully to substantiate his allegations. One glaring purposeful omission is America’s job approval rating of Congress. It’s the […]
