Government has no place assisting people in poverty

Mississippi Poverty RFK

Maintenance of a moral republic depends on you and me. We will either be virtuous and free or corrupt and ruled. The Founding Fathers' writings show as individuals, they would not care completely for the needy but help them to help themselves. The poor need earned achievement satisfaction, not...

Trump's mere existence is an embarrassment to the nation

Trump departs

In her letter regarding Don Porter’s “ravings,” Lorna Jorgensen seems to be of the opinion that everybody has a right to her opinion (“Left-wing ravings of columnist Don Porter have become irritating,” July 18). Those of us who share Porter’s...

Mueller, FBI need to get the lead out

Trump Russia Probe Mueller

"Urgent!" ought to be the most-used rubber stamp in Washington today. Why? Because the White House seems to have lost its "Top Secret" stamp. If, as it now appears, the election of Donald Trump was a covert Russian operation, surely the Kremlin knew that even if it were wildly successful, its shelf...

Liberals don't hate Trump. They're embarrassed by him

Trump-2

In his July 11 letter, John W. Reynolds asked, “Why all this fuss about the dignity of the presidency?” Because we have worked hard (since Adam and Eve) to become a dignified, civilized and cultured people! Agree to a so-called new normal? No! You say health care is broken? Go back and...

North Ogden police chief, animal control officer helped a sick kitten

Tabby kitten

In this day and age, good, helpful people are hard to find in a pinch. My friend and I found a stray cat that was sick and needrf help. Neither one of us had the means or money to care for the stray. We took the cat to the animal shelter only to find out that due to city boundaries, we would have...

Israel continues to violate international law, steal land in the West Bank

Israel Palestinians clash

While the attention of most Americans is diverted daily by the inept machinations of the least fit person ever to occupy the White House, on the other side of the world the Israelis continue, in violation of international law and taking advantage of our distraction, to steal land from Palestinian...

Christmas movies in July are a little too much

it's a wonderful life

I’m old, and maybe that’s my problem. But lately, watching one of my favorite television stations, they’ve jumped seasons and all the little movies they’re playing are based on Christmas stories — snow, living rooms decorated for Christmas, houses decorated with bulbs...

Lagoon needs to donate its caged animals to sanctuaries, zoos

BN 071815 Lagoon Zoo Protest 04-3

If you've ever taken a ride on the train at Lagoon, then you've seen the cruel and brutal lives the caged animals are forced to lead there. They are trapped in small enclosures with nothing to enhance their miserable daily existence. They must just sit there alone and idle in insane boredom in the...

America's founding documents were divinely inspired

Trump-4 Day of Prayer

In his July 5 letter (”Founders made it clear America wasn’t founded on Judeo-Christian principles”), Harold Young refutes my claim that our nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, as stated in my June 1 letter (”America must return to God in order to become great...

You can't trust anything President Trump says or tweets

Trump-7 points

It's pathetic when you can't believe any of the words that come out of your president's mouth, or from his thumbs. The source of much of the "fake news" in this nation is the White House. Beware of anyone who condones or encourages this type of behavior. This goes beyond party. Hold our...
