Letter to the Editor: Democrats have to fix what the GOP breaks


John Kass doesn’t have the sense he was born with. Hillary Clinton was first lady, senator and secretary of state. The peace treaty she negotiated between Israel and the Palestinians would be a great achievement if only the people who pledged financial support would pay up.

A survey of American history reveals that the Republicans always ruin the economy and the Democrats always have to fix the economy. Coal mining is a dirty, dangerous business, bad for the workers and the environment, and should go the way of the horse and buggy.

Kass writes, “That private email account of Hillary Clinton…may have been hacked by foreign intelligence services.” That’s a tempest in a teapot compared to the hacking by China and the espionage done by Russia.

And “troll wars?” Machine politics has been around since the Civil War. Kass has simply hopped on the current bandwagon that current technology is heaven sent. The Republicans are like the communists in more than one way. I’m not the first to say that.
