What I learned so far

To the editor: I have shared with the readers of The Journal some of my thoughts on what I have learned since the COVID-19 virus invaded our great country. Things that have happened that I added to my list are that some people in our country haven’t learned anything at all. The shootings ...

Blind, complete loyalty

To the editor: In the first few days after the election I was perplexed by the people who were my friends, classmates, family, and shipmates who continued to spread lies and disinformation about the election results, parroting the lies and disinformation of Donald Trump. Not since pre-World ...

Iran deal

To the editor: We should write to President Biden that if he concludes a nuclear agreement with Iran or North Korea, he must not repeat the fatal flaw of the first Iran deal: It imposed a waiting period for the inspection of suspected sites. This would have allowed them to move the materials ...

Refreshing headline

To the editor: What a refreshing headline in The Journal on January 14 —- MLC Athletic Center . . .! I looked back and this was the first time since December 26-27 (18 days) that The Journal and AP featured something besides a Trump bashing in their headliner article. This, in addition to ...

A silent protest no more

To the editor: I feel I need to speak out about the Covid 19 Pandemic and the Government mandates we are being made to follow. By the numbers from the CDC website dated: 1/2/2021 for the 10 months of the Pandemic: Redwood County Population -15,170 Known cases of Covid 19 - 1,308 ...

Regarding “Lack of Trust”

To the editor: A virus that kills almost 2 million people worldwide, almost 400,000 in USA and 5,528 in Minnesota is NOT a flu-ike virus. It is a health emergency. This is why some states, for safety of citizens, rightfully changed some of election rules/laws. There is no reason to spend ...

Response to ‘Our View’

To the editor: After reading “Our View” from Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in The Journal, I had to respond! First, let me say, what happened at the capitol was terrible! “Peaceful” protests are legal, RIOTS ARE NOT! Once lives and property are threatened, it’s called a riot. ...

Day In Court

To the editor: In a recent letter to the editor in The Journal, the writer outright “shamed” 75 (plus) million people who voted for President Trump in the Nov. 3, 2020 presidential election. To the American people, he said, “Shame on you.” To the military troops who serve our country, ...

History

To the editor: History and math were my favorite subjects in school. You can learn so much from history. History shows us that when America was strong (or great), veterans were in elected positions of power. Look it up. Veterans know the true meaning of sacrifice and teamwork. I vote for ...

Hypocrisy!

To the editor: Where was the outrage by the Democrats, liberals, and mainstream media over the rioting by BLM, Antifa, etc. last spring and summer? Now that high-ranking politicians actually felt personally endangered, they seem alarmed. But only because they can blame Trump supporters, or ...

Shame!

To the editor: After the events of Jan.6 in the National Capital I cannot and will not remain silent. Make no mistake about it, the President of the United States, in an act of insurrection, incited his followers to carry out the seditious acts that occurred. All of those involved must be ...

Lack of trust

To the editor: A few quick thoughts on the events in Washington DC on Jan. 6. This whole mess started because Government was able to instill enough fear of a flu-like virus in our people that we would accept drastic changes in our election process. Changes never before seen, or even tested, ...

Treason!

To the editor: I respect freedom of what people believe. I may not agree with it, but I accept that. However, this is treason! It is time for all of us, whether you voted for Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, independent, or others to wake up, come to our knees to pray, and rebuke and ...

Thoughts, questions and comments

To the editor: Thanks to The Journal for printing the commentaries of Walter Williams. Liberty and I will miss his wisdom, insight and common sense. May I suggest Bob Woodson as his replacement. From, The Journal’s “History” column August 29, 2020: One Year ago: Authorities in ...

Supporting the military in the time of COVID

To the editor, Growing up I was taught how Important It Is to support the men and women who serve in the armed forces. I was taught to recognize and respect the sacrifice made to uphold the freedoms we enjoy as a country. Throughout the history of our great nation we have called upon these ...

Peace, prosperity and freedom already lost

To the editor: The 12-31-2020 letter ‘The election: A Christian perspective’ lamented that Trump lost, and that: “…America’s days of peace, prosperity and freedom may be a thing of the past.” I submit that those attributes would still have been lost even if Trump won. Pat ...

Another Christian perspective

To the editor: In response to, “The election: A Christian perspective:” Dear fellow Christian, a gentle reminder that Christ does not choose leaders or vote in elections. In fact, there is no campaign that Jesus endorses, ever. There has been no evidence of election fraud during this ...

Hard to read all that anti-Trump propaganda

To the editor: It was extremely hard to read The Journal of Dec. 26-27, with all of its anti-Trump false rhetoric and propaganda. When is someone going to start fact-checking the Associated Press and syndicated editorials’ biased stories and remarks? Even the comic on the editorial page was ...

Time for campaign signs to come down

To the editor: My name is Dave Borchert. I am the Chief of Police for the City of New Ulm. This year's election cycle has really gotten people excited and engaged in the political process. The voter turnout was outstanding and this is certainly a positive reflection on society. Also, it was ...

The election – A Christian perspective

To the editor: As the days and weeks go by, and as President Trump’s options for contesting the results of the 2020 election dwindle down to practically nothing, it becomes more and more evident that the Democrats and their allies in the courts and in the media may have successfully carried ...
