Letter to the editor: ‘No wall’ is no deal

Such a deal, as the Jewish sometimes sarcastically say, and such a deal the border deal isn’t that President Trump and those who stand with him don’t like and think a lousy deal.

Of course, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, with her poisoned apples of impeachment and “no wall” for Trump, and her appeasing progressive Democrats and RINO cohorts are again pleased with themselves for not giving in to the president, and are confident he won’t counter with a government shutdown this time around.

But to the smug victors of this “no border” deal go the spoils for immigration and the ground being laid for socialism, sounding a death knoll for the grand republic established in the days of Ben Franklin, who challenged, “if you can keep it.”

It is my undying hope that more of the persistent liberals will wake up to reality and quit turning off their alarm clocks. Ahoy, liberals, awaken to reality, and we conservative patriots will welcome you aboard.

This was written as it should be from an old sailor and conservative patriot who stands for a great America.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
