Legislature trying to take away powers
What the Wisconsin Legislature in its lame duck session has done is attempted to nullify the November election. Specifically, Tony Evers and Josh Kaul campaigned with the promise that they would save the Obamacare "pre-existing conditions" legislation. The Republican Legislature is...

Adding election in March extraordinarily unwise
Republican lawmakers are floating the idea of adding an election in 2020 between the February primary election and the April election during a lame-duck session in the coming weeks. They will be extremely hard-pressed to find a county clerk, Republican and Democratic alike, or a nonpartisan...

Single-issue voting 'irresponsible'
Dear editor, I suggest to anyone who claims to belong to the "Christian right" do some research into its origins. Contrary to popular belief, abortion was not the issue that ignited this political movement. Jerry Falwell's "Moral Majority" began when Liberty University was not granted...

Hate groups use Confederate flag for its symbolism
J. Craig Scherf's remarks ("A southern view of symbols," Nov. 6 Telegram) about my letter about symbols ("What visible symbols mean," Oct. 30 Telegram), in particular the Confederate flag and the Nazi swastika, completely missed the point I was trying to make about how symbols hurt....

A southern view of symbols
Marge Kaptonak makes remarks about the Confederate battle flag to which I take strong exception ("What visible symbols mean," Oct. 30 Telegram). First, probably unknown to her is the fact that it is the battle flag, not the national flag of the Confederacy, and therein is part of...

Reject candidates who divide
During the most violent divide in our nation’s history, President Lincoln appealed to “the better angels of our nature.” Today, the worst of our nature has been unleashed, and the violence and divisions among us threatens the necessary civility for a democratic society. Last...

What I fear
I do not fear new immigrants or mobs of liberals protesting. I fear white-collar criminals who profit on the backs of ordinary citizens. I fear the loopholes in our laws that allow the most fortunate among us to get away without paying income taxes. I fear the deterioration of moral...

Vote to make a difference
I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize to my wife, my two daughters, my granddaughter and any and all women who would happen to read this. I happen to be a member of the current ruling class in America: old white men. Somehow, under our watch, we have handed you a country...

Could it happen here?
Dear editor, The swift, shocking political events of the past two years got me thinking about a time shortly after World War II when our elders emphatically warned us about the dangers to our democracy posed by the political left. The looming specter of worldwide communism was obvious....

A tip for plastic bottles
Here's an idea that might help everyone. Buy 100 percent fruit juice. Put it in a plastic bottle that can be frozen. Keep all your plastic bottles that you wash out. Buy plastic bottles for babies, children, another bigger bottle for toddlers, a bottle for 3- to 6-year-olds, a bottle...

Vote to help shape America
This November, each American will have an opportunity to shape America by voting. Do you want an America that believes citizens have no value unless they have a college education, that demeans successful people and believes the government has a right to confiscate some of their wealth?...
