Mr. Weiss (Your Views, 8 January 2021) is correct. You can’t justify this insanity. We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind! Something evil has invaded our nation, and our lives are never going to be the same.

We see other countries going socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.

Somehow, it’s unAmerican for the census to count how many Americans are in America.

Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good.

People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.

Universities that advocate equality discriminate against Asian-Americans in favor of African Americans.

Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.

Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people but stopping them is bad because it’s a violation of THEIR rights.

People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.

If a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.

It was cool for Joe Biden to “blackmail” the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquires about it.

People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.

Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the U.S. must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gangbangers who jump the southern fence are welcome.

$5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.

If you cheat to get into college, you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.

People are dying of a Chinese virus, but it’s racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China.

Pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us “racists”?!

We are clearly living in an upside-down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong, but killing innocent babies is right.

Sadly, this IS who we are!

Wake up America, the great unsinkable ship Titanic America has hit an iceberg, is taking on water, and is sinking fast. Our Republic is being replaced by an Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc’-ra-cy), a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

The amazing thing is that so called Christians are on both sides of the issues! Some are for abortions and some are not! Some are for racism while some are not! Some support Trump while others don’t! What is truly happening in The USA is that reality is no longer hidden! Trump exposed the fact that racism is strong as ever (though most black people already knew that)! And I suppose most whites already knew (even though they pretend not to know (unconscious bias..yeah right I have sun to sell you) that they are prejudiced! Now the world can truly see America for what it truly stands for! [innocent][offtopic] Can’t hide anymore! No wonder our children are screwed up in the brain while some sit and others stand behind pulpits across this land preaching what they themselves do not believe in but teaching their children hypocrisy😒

BREAKING: @jsolomonreports says DC police rejected his FOIA request for records pertaining to their investigation of the siege of the U.S. Capitol. Reply says release of the records would be 'personally embarrassing' 

Solomon says @FBI, @NYPD, and @USCP had prior knowledge of plans for violence at U.S. Capitol, including intel threatening murder of police officers. If this was a planned attack, you can’t accuse the President of inciting a spontaneous attack. This was planned days before.

@jsolomonreports says that inside sources leaked maps, internal documents helping to assist rioters enter and navigate the Capitol building.  Cites U.S. Attorney’s decision to bring a conspiracy case.

“I’ve been in fast food lines that went slower than this impeachment.”What Pelosi & McConnell knew & when is still a gap in our knowledge. Says team at @JustTheNews will continue to investigate. 

Rush to judgement? Three crucial questions remain unanswered about Capitol siegeWhat did Nancy Pelosi know? A prior plot or spontaneous riot? Were there inside facilitators?

Mr. Melvin did not write this. On Facebook it was attributed to Dave Ramsey, but I’m not sure that is even correct.

I am a firm believer in showing is better than telling someone. In seven days the liberals will have control but like most things in life it just depends. The Dems won't have Trump to blame and after they get over trying to impeach maybe they can actually concentrate on doing something for the country and its citizens. They could be working on positive ideas but that is much harder. We can all argue and call each other names but I can agree to disagree because time will tell all. The liberals have two years to convince the rest of us they are going to a good job so far it is not so good. Biden speaks out of both side of his mouth with unity on one side and bad mouthing Trump supporters on the other. Given the impeachment try again and disparaging talk I doubt Biden can spell UNITY. He is an old man teetering on the brink on senility so that should bother everyone. Bottom line if at the end of two years of extreme liberalism we are better off than I will be the first one to admit it. Some folks on here make good points both liberal and conservative but unless we find some common ground nothing good is going to happen. The liberal team only has two years and if they don't do well than they will lose their majority. They lost house seats in this election and there will be much more scrutiny and less mail in voting next time. I used the mail this time due to COVID and my age but never again. I have never used the voting machines because I know too much about computers to ever trust them.

Well said. We don't live in America anymore. Progressives have taken over and they want one party rule. Like in their models - North Korea and China. Dissent is not allowed.

Mr. Melvin’s list of shall we call it “a stretching of the truth” is too long to deal with. So we’ll pick one. The Chinese virus. Mr. Melvin seems to love to say that and so did Trump. Over and over and over and over. What happened? The bigoted Trump Trash who for the life of them could’ve locate the only half a brain cell they own, used this as a battle cry to turn on their Asian American neighbors. Asian Americans who are equally citizens of this great country despite the howls of lilly white Anglo Saxons. There is not a single soul dead or alive in this country who is not an immigrant or descended from immigrants. The so called “Chinese” virus is coronavirus 19 which is a virus found through out the world including other countries in Asia and Africa. So, Mr. Melvin, in your bigotry you are wrong. While we were infected with this virus that came from people arriving from China as well as Europe, the Chinese did not invent it, purposely spread it, engineer it out of a lab. Did they handle it badly? Yes, but dictatorships are like that. At least they had an excuse. We had a selfish incompetent dolt who thought only of himself and his election. I’m not sure which is worse.

Rick Hill

And you think plugs could do it better? We are a Republic if you don't like the way our state handled China Virus, MOVE!

NSA has confirmed it came from Wuhan China Lab, We have PP Obama to thank for that!

"plugs"?

Bryan.the.Nuri

and what is "PP" Obama?

Blackhorsegirl

You are misinformed.

Conservative

No, you are. The virus originated in china.

Blackhorsegirl

Thi virus Did come from China but came from bats and other strange animals they eat. They are monitoring bats in the rain forests of the Congo for coronavirus, Ebola, and possibly other diseases we know nothing about. While they were studying this virus in a lab, it was not created or engineered in the lab. Researchers believe there are diseases in the jungles, in the rain forests, passed among strange wildlife and we have absolutely no knowledge yet of these diseases. However, these diseases are coming for us. China is one of many places in the world coronavirus exists.

Please enlighten me, Democrats, what is not factual in Mr. Melvins letter? Dont stoop to name calling just discuss what he wrote that is not true. Maybe then you will understand why this country is so divided.

wwriverrafter

It's going to get far, far worse before it gets better. Sadly, no calls for unity will be heeded and the divisions will deepen. And the fat shaming, name calling, gender shaming.... Yep, Unity--just not any time soon....

Blackhorsegirl

Oh, boy 🙄 where to start. Mr. Melvin lives in the alternate and dishonest universe of Trump. I would think 🤔 that these Republicans will eventually run out of Alice’s rabbit holes. What will they do? They’ll start digging their own.

Shortly Trump will be gone and impeached and unable to hold office again after the Senate trial (thank you Jesus). He should just slither down to Florida and play golf like the millions of old fat men playing golf in Florida. And he’ll soon feel the economic pain as major corporations are moving against him and the over 145 elected persons who tried to overturn an election and attack our democracy.

Wow! Great letter! You are absolutely correct.....Get ready for the local socialist attacks. Truth really pisses them off!

The fact that you have now lost the civil war, the house, senate, and white house does not irritate me at all.

I seriously had to purposefully misspell the title of a classic work of literature in order for my comment to be accepted. Apologies in advance to these people: Duck Tracey, Duck Durbin, Duck Cavett and who could forget forget Donald “the biggest duck to ever be President” Trump.

I’m sorry but that’s a whale of a letter full of bluster and blubber (and false equivalencies)

Which brings this to mind...

What in that letter is false? Please point out anything in that letter that isn't happening right now.

ShruggingAtlas

That's easy -- it's "false" because they don't agree with it. They live in denial of any reality that goes against their opinions, regardless of evidence. Pure delusion!

Blackhorsegirl

Mr. Spock is right: Democrats have won it all. Please, stop your lies, stop believing them, as they are proven to be lies stop moving to a new lie, move on, find a hobby, talk to a mental health professional. It’s over. You’re unhappy with election results because your candidate lost. Golly, that’s how a democracy works. Instead of wallowing in an alternate reality of lies, join your local Republican committee and work harder for the next election. Listen Carefully. That’s. How. A. Democracy Works.

Bernie Mac

A hollow victory. The Democrats, with their lies and hypocrisy, have destroyed any chance of a unified country for the foreseeable future. Congratulations!

Blackhorsegirl

Thanks, Bernie. A dangerous, mentally ill, tantrum throwing 7 year old has been kicked out of the White House by over 80 million voters. The Democrats are in charge and there’s a new sheriff in town. Maybe something will get done that doesn’t revolve around Trump’s ego.

Bernie Mac

Venezuela here we come!! Yahoo!!!

Blackhorsegirl

Excuse me: what evidence? If it’s the so called evidence of election fraud please excuse me while I go roar with laughter😹. Trump’s bafoonish, incompetent clowns of his so called legal team had no evidence. If they had they would have presented it. Personally, I think it would take aliens 👽 to be able to manipulate 7 million votes.

ShruggingAtlas

Thank you for proving my point. You went off the rails about something I never mentioned and you STILL can't provide any evidence to counter Mr. Melvin's letter. All you have are personal attacks and name-calling. Talking about acting like a 7 year old.....

Lots of comments, but not one answering my simple question. What in that letter is false? Please point it out. Pretty simple request, imho.

We do not see anything not true in this letter. It is a little scary to think about what may come next for the country of our grandchildren!!!!

Blackhorsegirl

Illegals voting. Not true or we can say it ranks up there with Trump’s hundreds and hundreds of underage voters and there was actually what(?) maybe 2? Normal elections produce glitches, human error, occasional mistakes, and individuals trying to register their dead mother like the Trump supporter in Pennsylvania. When that didn’t work, he tried his dead mother on law. He was arrested. Then there is Trump’s maybe a thousand prisoners who voted. There was one. Mr. Melvin is reading too many conspiracy websites.

Mr. Melvin is reciting off Fox News or conspiracy websites and it also shows him to be a racist bigot. Why would anyone think his information is correct. And, yes, it was Mr. Trump who threatened Ukraine not Biden. He should learn to get his actors straight.

Conservative

Supporting Trump does not make someone a racist or a bigot. And Biden did threaten Ukraine, and he openly bragged about it.
