Letter author affords retraction
Re: “The election of Donald Trump,” Nov. 13, 2016, letter to the editor
The week after the 2016 presidential election, I wrote a letter to the editor wherein I attempted to reassure those that, like me, have been upset with the election outcomes that we’d be OK even with Donald Trump as President. I used to be improper.
My mistake was twofold. First, I had confidence that extra reasonable or affordable Republicans would mood President Trump’s rhetoric and impulses. This has not solely confirmed to be a false confidence, however it appears many Republicans are reinforcing his world view. Second, I vastly underestimated the injury this man may do.
As a Democrat, after all I don’t agree with most of his insurance policies. Nevertheless, his immigration coverage is so excessive as to be merciless, inhumane and utterly towards United States values. His international coverage appears to be aligned with Russian aims extra carefully than what I assumed have been pretty non-partisan established priorities.
As I write this, I’m listening to an interview that CBS Information did with President Trump within the final day. When requested who he thought was our greatest foe, his first response was the European Union. Yesterday, he known as a recorded interview he did “faux information.”
The place are the voices from the affordable proper? The place are my buddies who’re Republican and are good folks?
Anybody, no matter their political opinions, can see that this President is unfit intellectually, morally, and emotionally.
I urge everybody to vote in November. The stakes have by no means been increased.

Implement the present legal guidelines
Re: “Uber, Lyft enact firearms guidelines,” July 15 enterprise story
When is the general public going to acknowledge and understand that criminals don’t obey guidelines or legal guidelines? Is it towards the legislation to drive whereas drunk, rob banks, hack computer systems? After all it’s. Nevertheless, it nonetheless occurs and can proceed to occur so long as there’s a legal aspect in society.
Making extra legal guidelines is just not the reply. Extra stringent enforcement of present legal guidelines and fewer leniency in our courts nevertheless could be.
