Commenting on comments

Consider who benefits from legislative and executive actions

Women’s march critics missed message

To the editor: One phrase from a recent letter about the Jan. 21 Women’s March stands out to me: “Although all people have a right to demonstrate, it turned out to be more a Pro-abortion rally than anything else. It was a rally in favor of being allowed to kill and murder unborn ...

Prayer will be needed over next four years

To the editor: I agree with a recent letter to the editor that the next four years will be very difficult. It will be difficult to get things done considering the obstruction politics of the Democrats. It will be difficult to read and watch the biased coverage from newspaper and television ...

Bad behavior all around

To the editor: Recent letters and columns have described liberals and Democrats as without a moral core, uncivilized, having low standards, and fallen brethren. Proof of this mass depravity was the language and behavior of a few among millions at rallies and marches. Besides the unfairness of ...

Thanks for running relevant news

To the editor: I write this letter in response to the gentleman who is concerned that The Journal may be showing bias by printing a front-page story about the Women’s March on Washington and only including articles about the March for Life and Vice President Pence’s speech at that march ...

My View vs. Our (Journal’s) View

To the editor: After reading your view (Opposition, not obstructionism) in last Sunday’s paper I couldn’t help but think back to 2012. I very clearly remember when Senator Mitch McConnell stated numerous times, NO ONE in any way should cooperate with President Obama in his next term. ...

Getting through the next four years

To the editor: Some notes to myself on surviving the next four years: Continue trusting logic, common sense, when using such is disparaged, ignored, skipped over by holders of power at this juncture; Stay steady, calm, when bullied (humor is helpful); Pray, pray for ...

Oak Hills is a ‘gem’ for New Ulm community

To the editor: This letter is way overdue, but we would like to tell you about a “gem” in our community that many people take for granted, until you need it. We are speaking about Oak Hills Assisted Living and Nursing Home. Where does one begin? For almost two years, our parents, Stan ...

The journey of an immigrant – from New Delhi to New Ulm

Judges should not be picking winners

To the editor: As a Minnesotan I am embarrassed by our Senator Franken suggesting he will not vote to support Judge Gorsuch for the Supreme Court because Gorsuch “often sided with business over employees.” Judges are not charged with picking winners and losers.  Their charge is to ...

Correction

To the editor: I accidentally submitted the wrong number in paragraph four of my “Pro Abortion vs. Pro-Life” letter on Saturday. It should have read: “This was the 44th consecutive March For Life since Roe vs Wade made abortions legal, with an estimated loss of 58 million lives since ...

Pro-Abortion vs. Pro-Life

To the editor: Over the past two weeks, there were two very different marches that took place in Washington D.C. The Left-leaning Women’s March on 1/21, insisted that the administration was hurting women. But, as most Americans agree, abortion hurts women more. Family Research Council ...

Immigrant discrimination

There’s a new sheriff in town

To the editor: A little response to the Letter to the Editor which appeared in the Wednesday, Feb. 1 edition of The Journal entitled “Opposition to Trump Policies.” When Obama won eight years ago he told McCain “We won, you lost.” Now it’s Republicans turn, they could say, “We ...

Media bias

To the editor: After picking up my newspapers from the mailbox Saturday, Jan. 28 after the Pro-Life March on Friday Jan. 27 I looked at the front page and I was expecting a headline to read, “Vice-President Mike Pence speaks at Pro-Life rally” and there was nothing on the front page about ...
