Letter to the editor: Both Democrats, Republicans need to get to work

How many places employ people at full pay that do not do their job? Well, I don’t know the answer myself, but the U.S. government is one of them. Isn’t it time the politicians, Republican and Democrat, get on with running the country and quit running their mouths?

I love President Trump and I don’t really care what you say about me or him. Just quit showing your own ignorance by stating what all Americans want, think, say, etc. Where exactly would you possibly get that information?

You see, birds of a feather usually do flock together; therefore, according to my acquaintances, everyone loves Trump. But that is a small sampling of “all Americans.” So let’s just use our common sense (that is, if you have any) and insist they do their job and let the next election speak for “all Americans.”

As for these mass murders, I suggest the punishment fit the crime. They invoke the death penalty; let the police do the same. No need for gun control and it saves tax money, too.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
