Letter: Trump’s silence only encourages violence

After waking from my long nap that Jim Barber observed I took, I awoke to find, in my amazement, that Congress did not allow Barack Obama to run for a third term! Had he done so, we would not be in this twittertornado so bad that I look forward to the commercials on TV now.

Letter: Reps. need to get behind get behind Audit the Pentagon Act of 2017

While I’m no fan of Ann Coulter I agree with one point she made in her essay Contract with Republicans, published in the Verde Independent on Friday, August 4, 2017, namely that the United States should stop wasting money and precious lives on pointless wars.

Letter: Congress only needs to supply the rope: Trump will hang himself

Wow! I had no idea that Trump supporters were so touchy. We all know that Trump is thin skinned – any perceived slight will unleash a torrent of adjectives aimed at the offender, but I thought his supporters might be more restrained.

Letter: New presidential expectations

We watch, aghast, as the republican congress (sic) grovels in abject subservience to trump’s probably unconstitutional, potentially criminal, possibly treasonous, daily misdeed.

Letter: Make up your mind

In the Verde Independent Newspaper July 28, 2017 is a what I classify as a Letter of “Conflicting Opinions” within itself; when recently past years events are taken into account.

Letter: Democrats pointing finger of blame need to take a look in mirror

I’m replying to Bob Burke’s letter of July 28, 2017. My husband and I watched all channels on TV for many years and are both avid readers. After happening upon FOX, we soon realized that it is the only channel which has liberals on as much as conservatives. Therefore, intelligent people can make their own decisions about current events.

Letter: Right-wing hypocrisy is growing like weeds in summer

Just like the weeds that follow a summer monsoon storm, Jim Barber’s hypocrisy is in full bloom. After much thought, reflection, and a good dose of Fox News, Barber wrote that the current political toxicity is the fault of – you won’t believe it - Democrats.

Letter: And what happens when the ‘Deep Well’ runs dry?

In a time of drought, why allow even more draining of our precious aquifer! Where is the Environmental Study? Whose wells will run dry? And yes, it is happening now! Many people are facing dry wells already.

Letter: Thanks to all for a successful Cornfest 2017

After nine years the weather decided to be nice to me and Cornfest went on with just a few big gust of wind and a little rain.

Letter: Government leaders need to put the citizens first

Thank you for publishing the salaries of the public “Servants” in Yavapai County. My first initial reaction was anger, but then it turned to great sadness.

Letter: Bob Dylan had it right more than 50 years ago

Decades ago, Bob Dylan wrote a challenge -- and warning -- to today’s members of the House and Senate. Seems timely that we revisit his prescient words:

Did you know that it was only in the 2000 presidential election that the color Red for Republicans and the color Blue for Democrats actually “stuck” as identifying the two parties?
