Letters

Letter: Stupidity and arrogance a dangerous combination

The two most common elements are hydrogen and helium. The two most common elements in our American political system are Stupidity and Arrogance. They appeared early in our history. James Madison thought he could steal Canada from the British. After all they were concentrating on Napoleon. So we ...

Letter: Evolution doesn’t care what you believe

Five years before everyone knew what a ventilator was, I became a professional patient with a blood cancer. The treatment and complications left me with physical and mental problems I’ll struggle with for the second half of my life. Not one of my doctors ever suggested a poultice of eye of ...

Letter: On the ground, not 800 miles away

Why do some in this administration like to start new investigations into what they perceive from a distance? It aggravates me that a leader, who spoke 800 miles away from the problem at the border, then said a person on a horse needs to be investigated? — a person who was maybe 8 inches away ...

Letter: E-Verify the solution to our immigration problem

We need to do something about the perpetual immigration crisis at our southern border, and Senator Mitt Romney's proposal of mandatory e-verify is spot on. E-verify is a computer app that allows employers to verify that someone applying for a job can legally work within the U.S. If Congress ...

Letter: Weeds on Washington a sorry sight

What's the problem with the three long weed patches down the middle of Washington Blvd. in downtown Ogden? It makes Ogden look like it's being abandoned. A beautiful display of colorful petunias would have lasted from spring until first frost. Yes, there are some flowers in there, but the ...

My wife and I and probably millions of other people including Donald Trump’s niece, Mary, would certainly disagree with Mary A. Carter’s letter to the editor that ran in the September 16th edition of the Standard Examiner. We strongly believe that Donald Trump should and hopefully will face ...

Letter: What does the American flag mean to you?

It has become common for some people to disrespect the flag, burn it, stomp on and disgrace it in any way possible, to use it as an excuse to commit violent acts. A former leader of the Black Lives Matter movement in Utah said it was a symbol of racism and hate. On this 11th day of September I ...

Letter: Australians are not foolhardy and wrong

Regarding national columnist, Rich Lowry’s piece titled, “When Western society goes insane,” I agree with his title, but for the opposite reason outlined in his commentary. He goes into detail about Australia’s “COVID-19 lockdown mania,” which has “lurched into a bizarre and ...

Letter: Government can do more to solve water needs in the west

We have pipelines that move vast amounts of oil and natural gas all over the country. The east has way too much water while we in the west don’t have near enough. Why not bring some of that water from the east west? We also have three states with coastlines on the Pacific Ocean. Israel and ...

Letter: Thank God we are living in the USA

I watch the children dance and sing, innocently they play; I only hope and wonder if tomorrow's future holds the same freedoms and liberties as these children enjoy today. Behind the laughter, play and the fun there exist forces that threaten our peace to destroy everything America has stood ...
