Yes, we've gone overboard with the higher education industry. Four years on the job would teach a person a lot more than four years in a classroom listening to somebody who never actually worked in that field.
I have heard and operated "lawn care machines" on Sundays during both Republican and Democratic administrations. Am I to believe, had Romney been elected, Sunday lawn machine operation would have been outlawed?
In your Aug. 30 editorial, you seem to imply that you've seen some sort of "evidence" that it was Assad who used chemical weapons in Syria. If so, please share it with your readers. Obama hasn't provided any.
It appears that Washington, D.C., and Hollywood are the two most corrupt cities in the country. Every politician, regardless of party, who goes to Washington immediately falls into line with the rest of the servants of rich, and every young person who goes to Hollywood immediately becomes a fool.
I do believe political opposition to the ACA (affectionately known as Obamacare) comes from fear -- fear that if people accept it and it improves lives that it will provide proof that government done right can be helpful and that "socialism" is not evil. Let's give it a chance, for the sake of the millions of underinsured and uninsured.
In response to the Aug. 30 story: Daniel Turner murdered Terry Clark in 1999. The judge said his current sentence could run at the same time as his federal charges. I did not know Terry or the Clark family. Her father apparently grieved himself to death. Turner's sentence should be a life sentence, but not concurrent with federal charges.
The article in Friday's paper describing how a loving but distraught man ended his wife's cancer-stricken life is so very sad, but it points to serious problems this country is failing to address. That he and his wife filed for bankruptcy due to medical costs is a moral outrage. Sixty-five of personal bankruptcies in the United States are due to health-care costs. That percentage in all other Western countries is zero.
Raising the minimum wage won't help anyone and will actually hurt the economy? You've got to be kidding me! I suppose if we all worked for nothing, the economy would be booming.
