Since I was born in 1944. I have lived under 14 presidents — seven Democrats and seven Republicans. Most of them lied, cheated, made bad decisions and promises they could never keep.
During these 75 years, I served in the military, built my own home, worked, made a good living, retired from one job, married a wonderful woman, raised a great family, believed in whom I wanted and bought what I needed and could afford, including guns.
All this and it didn’t make a tinker’s damn who was president of the United States.
Angry, bitter, biased diatribes continuously regurgitated from regular letter writers need to be directed to their pets who will love them unconditionally.
Tonight is National Night Out and I thank God I don’t have neighbors like the two letter writers or their supports like you. And also to the editor, I think you and your reader advisory board should adopt one of Russell Hamman’s rules for membership — “Nothing Political” — in your letters to the editor section.
Instead, print something worthwhile that won’t anger half your readership like Baytown’s daily, monthly and annual rainfall.
