Letters to the Editors

Dear editor, Pointman Ministries of The Dalles would like to thank The Dalles Chronicle, the people of The Dalles and Wasco County residents for the generosity and their support in raising funds for the people of Paradise, Calif., victims of the devastating Camp Fire.

Letter to the Editor: Shutdown unfair

To the editor: I thought I could wait out the shutdown and not speak out, but with today’s campaign being announced to “send a brick to Nancy and Chuck” by [President Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign], I cannot keep quiet any longer. I am directly affected by the government shutdown as a furloughed government employee. It is a humiliating and demeaning experience to be treated this way by any employer.

Letter to the Editor: Feel good bill

To the editor: SB 501 will make criminals out of hundreds of thousands of law abiding Oregonians. This “feel good” legislation originating with Portland students and introduced by Portland Democrats will do nothing to prevent people bent on violence from committing violence. Limiting ammunition purchases to 20 rounds per month is ridiculous.

Letter to the Editor: Political prognosis

To the editor: Since Democrats have won the House I have some predictions for the near future with no apology to anyone. Hang on to your hat—taxes will increase, social programs will expand and military spending will decrease. One constant harangue will be gun control; if successful, read loss of constitutional rights.

Letter to the Editor: Explanations due

To the editor, In case you missed it, Congressman Greg Walden has announced he will hold 16 town hall meetings around Oregon Congressional District 2, the first such events since April of 2017. In 2017 his press release said that he is “proud to hold regular town hall meetings in all 20 counties in our vast district. They are another great way for me to update my ‘to-do’ list to take back to the nation’s capital.” But after these meetings, where Walden expressed he was there to listen, Walden went into hiding.

Letter to the Editor: Workshop unhelpful

To the editor: To fulfill a federal requirement, the Mid-Columbia Housing Authority is offering a homebuyers’ workshop for thirty dollars. I took the homebuyers’ workshop last spring. In my experience the instructor did not have accurate information about the real estate market in Wasco County.

Letter to the Editor: Bully approach

To the editor: Finding common ground and compromise are very different. Compromise connotes partial surrender. More about finding common ground in another letter. Compromise is the bully approach. What belongs to the bully is his! What is yours is debatable.

Letter to the Editor: Celibacy at fault

To the editor: Revelations that some 500 Roman Catholic clergy sexually assaulted thousands of children in Minnesota and Pennsylvania is devastating news. Why does this occur? The church goer and the casual evolutionist are drunk.

Letter to the Editor: Kudos to The Dalles Disposal

To the editor: It was the day after Christmas and I was driving through town noticing the overflowing cans and dumpsters with Christmas remains. I laughingly said to myself, “I am not the only one who forgot you had a much deserved holiday, but tomorrow your efforts will make the town shine again.” Do you know how much we appreciate you?

Letter to the Editor: Stand your ground

Dear editor, How would you like to be president and wake up every morning being trashed by the D.C. Deep State media, the Democrats and even many backboneless Republicans?

Letter to the Editor: Resignation chilling

Dear Editor, In 2003, as US forces were gearing up for the invasion of Iraq, my Army unit was attached to the Marine Corps 1st Division. As the company’s 1st Sergeant I took my place among the division’s Command Operations Center where I first met General James Mattis, the division’s commander, and John Kelly, the deputy commander.

Letter to the Editor: No magic pill

To the editor: After dozens of attempts to repeal Obamacare and two trips to the Supreme Court, Republicans finally found a friendly Texas judge to declare the ACA unconstitutional. While that ruling may be overturned, Republicans should worry that they risk being held to their repeated promises to “repeal and replace” the ACA with something “better, cheaper and covers everyone”.
