Letter to the editor: Tunnel vision

Regarding Carl Mochak’s letter “Disagreeing with Trump supporters” (Aug. 1, TribLIVE): Mr. Mochak, if you just learned the meaning of the word “inept,” you must have slept in your English classes.

You are probably like the cheering and chanting Democrats as well — liberals, socialists and abortion-loving . If you support abortion, then you are not a Christian. Your ancestors as well brought slaves to this country, and you judge from a 21st-century perspective, not a 16th- or 27th-century one.

Check your favorite Democratic presidents. Obama never served in the military, and Clinton used every trick in the book to escape the draft.

Your arguments are weak. Perhaps you should make an appointment with an ophthalmologist to cure your tunnel vision.

And by the way, I think most people in America feel the way I do.

Rene A. Marquis


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.
