Letters

Two things on sources

To the editor: 1. The following appeared in comments reacting to my letter of Nov. 12, 2020. Overall, we rate Conservapedia Questionable based on extreme right-wing bias, promotion of propaganda and conspiracies as well as outright false information. This is not a credible source on any ...

Sports gambling should be legalized

To the editor: The recent editorial questioning the need for legalizing sports gambling is off the mark. The fighting over legalized gambling was decided by constitutional amendment back in 1988. In the over 30 years since then Minnesota has seen a massive expansion in the ways and places ...

Immaculate deception

To the editor: The Democrats are calling for unity, but the party that boasts of being tolerant, open-minded and inclusive doesn’t live up to its billing. When Trump was inaugurated nearly 70 Democrats boycotted the event. They also disputed certification of electoral votes in 2001, 2005 ...

Inciting insurrection?

To the editor: The Democrats are determined once again to impeach and convict now-former President Trump. This time the charges are that he incited an insurrection and attempted to overthrow the U.S. government. They have initiated these proceedings, not in an attempt to protect the ...

Love your enemies

To the editor: Jesus tells us in the Gospel of Matthew (5:44-45) to “love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. That you may be children of your heavenly Father, for he makes his sun rise on the bad and the good, and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust.” Hate is ...

Good news from 100 years ago

To the editor: John Stossel’s refreshing column, “Naughty vs. Nice” (Dec. 24th Journal), about politicians and media vs. free Americans, prompts this brief comparison of two depressions. Government leaders, operating on the assumption that improvement could come only if they ...

Let’s support our local businesses

To the editor: I wanted to say that we should be supporting our local economy, like the Red Dragon Gaming Store and Inspired and Lola’s and McDonald’s. It might help if you post on Facebook a review about the things you love and tell people where to get it. We got a game called Echidna ...

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 ...
