Letter to the Editor: Fubar

Editor:To all you Trump haters you got what you wanted Joe Biden is President, Kamala Harris is Vice President - Now What? Error after error after error! Four previous administrations cannot be blamed; this happened on Biden's watch. FUBAR! I am referring to the debacle in Afghanistan. We have thousands of troops in Korea - shooting ended in 1953, thousands in Japan - shooting ended in 1945, and thousands in Germany - shooting ended in 1945.

Reading my mind: Trillions

You know you might be a politician when you say, "I know Trillions of dollars SOUNDS like a lot of money." That was an excerpt from a brief conversation I had with a staff member that works for our Senator, Chuck Grassley.I get news releases from most of the elected officials every time they need to brag about what they did. Or whenever they need to cover their behind because they something that they know the people back home won't be happy with, so they need to spin it.

Letter to the Editor: Immigration/refugees and Communism

Editor:Historically the United States Government has stood tall for freedom and against totalitarian Communism. We are not helping the people of Cuba with their latest street demonstrations and rebellion? No further sanctions by our government or any help to the demonstrators. Now we know that the Biden Administration has ordered the U. S. Coast Guard to turn back any Cubans boating to Florida---- Hmmm! But the Southern U.

Reading my Thoughts: Runaways

I've watched with a bit of a chuckle, the state representatives from Texas. The group decided that it would be a good idea to take off to Washington D.C. so that they could protest a bill in the Texas Statehouse. You know, like the spouse does who DOESN'T want to talk about "it," whatever "it" is. They'd rather run away and hide rather than come up with a good debate on the topic.

Letter to the Editor: Sexual Harassment and the Border

Dear Editor:To those in the "so-called" news business -- being in New York is a long way from Iowa and its politics. What we see here is what the powerful are capable of. This travesty - harassment and abuse of women fits Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, others and now Andrew Cuomo. Where is the outrage of Democrat Women? Some have come forward. The question is will he be held accountable or be like Bill, hold on, deny, deny, deny until it goes away.

Letter to the Editor: Germ Warfare

Dear Editor, It has been common knowledge for years that all major developing countries have possessed the ability to conduct germ warfare. The Wuhan crisis is no exception. Was a virus created in the lab and deliberately leaked into the local wet markets for experimentation on the people of Wuhan? This is totally consistent with China's poor record on civil rights and its complete lack of concern for all of the Chinese people.

Reading my mind: Leadership

While local news is the focus of Vinton Today, I also keep an eye on what's happening around the nation, especially in politics. I don't know why it fascinates me as it does but it does. And usually, it disgusts me.When Andrew Cumo was accused this week of sexual harassment by several women, it's sad to say that I didn't even have a reaction. Why? Because it's normal to hear about it all the time with politicians.

Letter to the Editor: Property Rights

Dear Editor,I see the City once again entered private property and destroyed personal property. I also noticed that a trampoline and a kayak were left and later a boat that was removed during the abatement, that was full of "stuff" was returned minus the "stuff".Does anyone see this as a problem?Nosing around, because it is easy in "V town", people love to talk.
