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

May 24, 2016

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.

Letter to the Editor: How can anyone support Trump?

May 19, 2016

As a reasoning, compassionate octogenarian, I’ve been pondering the current political nonsense regarding the race to the White House and I’m willing to listen to the answers to three questions:

Letter to the Editor: Don’t count on Clinton to rescue us from storm

April 30, 2016

America is starting to remind me of a ship lost at sea after a major storm. There seems to be no sense of direction, no moral compass and no worthy leader willing or able to reestablish our heading and our status as leader of the free world. A regrettable combination of clueless leadership, politically correct hooey and progressive blather created a storm of moral lunacy that poisoned our culture and lowered our guard as we drifted away.

Letter to the Editor: Kudos to governor for vetoing bill

April 27, 2016

I see that our governor has spared Virginia the loss of jobs and economy being suffered by states like North Carolina and Mississippi when he just vetoed Todd Gilbert’s hateful “religious liberty” bill that would have sanctioned state sponsored discrimination against legally married gay and lesbian couples.

Letter to the Editor: Strasburg needs strong leadership

April 26, 2016

Strasburg is no longer the small, quiet, peaceful, little town it was many, many years ago (Once Upon a Time) where everyone knew one another, trusted their neighbor and often lived out their entire life in one area. Small town life is not as simple anymore.

Letter to the Editor: Pray for America

April 25, 2016

I was reading in the book of Judges and came to this verse, “Another generation grew up who did not acknowledge the Lord or remember the mightythings he had done for Israel.”

Letter to the Editor: Let’s not forget the Hastert Rule

April 22, 2016

Like other recent articles about Dennis Hastert’s behavior, Diane Dimond’s column in Tuesday’s Northern Virginia Daily doesn’t even mention his prior claim to fame: the Hastert Rule, a perverse approach to governing our country.

Letter to the Editor: Blocking of health care by GOP morally wrong

April 11, 2016

I enjoyed Michael Cash’s letter in on April 6 in The Northern Virginia Daily. The Republicans who are blocking health care for many thousands of the poorest people in Virginia are not only morally wrong, they are economically stupid. First of all, the expansion of Medicaid will cost Virginia nothing because the federal government will pay for it, and if (or when) the federal government should stop paying for it the program will end. End of story.
