Subversion ruining U.S.

Subversion means to undermine. When applied to the ruinous effects of this administration's policies, near useless Republican Congress, and recent Supreme Court decisions, logically, the federal government is undermining (subverting) this nation.

Nation failing veterans on care

Today we celebrate Memorial Day to honor those who have given their all and those who have served recently and those who are serving now. They have done this for the love of this country and the freedom that we take for granted.

Thanks to help after fall

On Friday, May 6, I had a very bad fall at the Ellenton Post Office, striking my head on a parking block. Immediately, the good Samaritans appeared. One called the EMS and another took my blood pressure. They stayed with me until help arrived.

Fee for water hook-up too high

The other day my pump went out in my irrigation system. Living in Village Green and having reclaimed county water running under the street in front of me, I thought I would cost it out to hook up. After numerous phone calls (site is bad) and emails to the county, I got the information I needed to cost out the reclaimed water hook-up.

Anti-Trump TV ad just trash

Most Americans have learned a lot of new things about how primaries/caucuses really work, and then there is the "super delegate" issue. We all thought we each have a vote that is important and counts. Well, we have learned that is not necessarily so.

Schools not tied to socialism

James Troxler wrote “Failures of public education, media are a boost to Hillary” (Letters, May 14). He said that America’s youth are kept from knowing the critical importance of voting because socialists are “seizing the public education system.”

Now expose Clinton history

I read the New York Times’ interesting and informative article on Donald Trump and his treatment of women on Sunday. While the article certainly raised some valid questions, may I suggest you review your Journalism 101 notes regarding sources and motivation, as well as the term "innuendo"?

Only voters can stop ‘Trumpism’

Isolationism in the late ’30s promoted a neutral United States to keep us out of the European conflict. Some Americans even flirted with Nazism around the same time. Communism has had followers here, and socialism seems to be recycled periodically. Now there’s a new and dangerous philosophy raising it’s ugly head, Trumpism.

Beruff will be judged, too

I would like to welcome U.S. Senate candidate Carlos Beruff to join us in the Animal Kingdom, along with our "animal" president, all politicians, lobbyists, saints, sinners, baboons and manatees. Donald Trump may suggest that some of us (e.g. Jeb Bush) are inanimate vegetables or minerals, but really we are all animals. God will decide which of us have souls, and which of us will be saved when the time comes.

Trump critics cite nonsense

I have been sick and tired of “the (political) establishment” for a long time. Now we have to listen to more trash about Donald Trump. I really don't care what his past 20, 30 and 40 years have been like in his personal life. There is not one person reading this paper who does not have a past.

Don’t build Tara Bridge

At the May 24 Manatee Board of County Commissioners (BCC) meeting, the discussion of the Tara Bridge (connecting Tara Boulevard and Honore Avenue over the Braden River) will be reopened. I encourage the residents of University Park and Tara to advise Chairman Vanessa Baugh (District 5, vanessa.baugh@mymanatee.org) of their concerns. The bridge has been in the planning stage for more than 25 years and, rightfully so, BCC has shelved the idea more than once.
