Weather, guns & Kennedy

| Thursday, Nov. 9, 2017, 8:55 p.m.

Misguided as some people appear to be, I believe letter writer Gene Watson is way out there ( “What Republicans tell us” ).

First, I don't believe any one person or party can control weather. There is only one God and he controls our weather.

Second, maybe Watson should research all the gun laws that have been passed since 1940 and see how many duplicate laws there are and how many he may deem necessary in today's world before crying for more gun regulations.

Third, maybe he should look at his standard-bearer in 1960, President Kennedy, whose tax cuts moved the country into a boom era. I know he doesn't want to give President Reagan credit for doing the same thing, so I will. Tax cuts for the rich? Did he ever get a job from a poor person? Are there incentives to create jobs or expand or even start a business if all you do is feed a corrupt, money-hungry government?

What do you think?

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.
