Letter: Vote them out

Iowa's Republican rulers made guns easier to get and votes harder to cast. Only the 2nd Amendment matters to them. Gun rights are the only rights they maintain. It's time to vote them out. Give them spare time to read the rest of the Constitution.

I was born in Moline, educated in Moline and had the privilege to teach and coach in Moline. This year’s mayoral election is beyond anything I’ve ever seen. When do we as Moliners stoop to the level of the negative ads that are being sent to our homes about Sangeetha Rayapati? They are disgusting and very untrue.

Well it is now official. Republicans have made it easier to buy and carry guns than it is to vote. Their obsession with guns escapes me. There is no evidence that more guns make us safer, just more likely to get shot. I have no problem with the 2nd Amendment, just the misinterpretation of it.

At election time last year Ray LaHood wrote an outrageously deceptive article about Justice Tom Kilbride, accusing him of not being ethical in an effort to prevent him from retaining his seat on the Illinois Supreme Court. Well, now Ray LaHood is in the paper for an ethics violations. Shame on you Ray LaHood and those who believed what has become an all-too-familiar Republican propaganda party.

For the second time in three years, Democrats in the U.S. House have passed House Resolution 1 (HR1), dubbed the "For the People Act". HR1, along with the Voting Rights Advancement Act (HR4), strengthens our democracy by implementing a comprehensive set of federal reforms, affecting elections, campaigns, ethics and voting rights.

"Whatsoever you do" to the least of my brothers, that you do unto me. These words came from a familiar hymn about the corporal works of mercy, which words actually came from Jesus. How beautiful is that! Think about it. What we do to others we are doing for God — but wait a minute. The reverse may be true. What evil we do to others, such as killing of innocent babies, we do unto God.

This will be a fairly short letter. I was watching the news on Friday, March 26, and, of course, there was an update on the Covid numbers from Scott County, reporting 146 cases and Rock Island County reporting 41 cases. Here is my point: People, we've been in this mess over a year and there seems to be quite a few knuckleheads who refuse to acknowledge that we are still not out of the proverbial woods yet, even though we have knowledgeable scientists and infectious disease doctors telling us that we are still having to keep our guard against this deadly disease.

This newspaper frequently gives "thumbs up" and "thumbs down." Newspapers are supposed to be unbiased in reporting the news, right? Why doesn't this newspaper report "thumbs down" on the crisis on the border that the Biden administration created. It's shameful the way the children are packed like sardines in caged rooms. Three days this past week the newspaper reported nothing on this. Just be journalists and report all the news.

In a recent letter, John Dixell said that people who have watched PBS programs on the history of the earth will understand that climate change has been continuous since the earth was formed. Therefore, since climate change happens naturally, we should accept the inevitability of currently occurring global warming and concentrate on controlling immigration and refugees.
