Jack Weeks (5-5) 169 RUSSIA

To The Daily Sun,

I was surprised — and pleased — to read Pat Buchanan' s column in Thursday's Sun about U.S./Russia relations. The headline read "Why Russia resents us". I think Buchanan's explanation is "right on." What would be the U.S. reaction be if there were Russian troops in Mexico or Canada, or anywhere else in the Western Hemisphere? We learned from the so-called Cuban Missile Crisis many years ago. So in my mind, it's not hard to figure out why Putin's Russia is so super defensive about U.S. military activity in their historic sphere of influence — Eastern Europe and the Mid-East.
Yet I don't know the alternative, or the "answer." Our government, especially our military establishment, are suspicious of Russia's potential expansionist behavior, based on the decades of Soviet expansionist behavior during the decades of the Cold War. It seems like the detente era of Reagan and Gorbachev has "gone up in smoke," and we're stuck in mutual distrust similar to that of the Cold War.

This is what the left considers free speech & respectful dialogue

To The Daily Sun,

Fascists are on the march again. At a Trump rally in California, the Democratic Party of Orange County and The Orange County Young Democrats urged their supporters to demonstrate. Well they did and, in their typical fashion, they smashed a police car and threw objects at passing traffic. This is what liberals consider free speech and respectful dialogue these days.

If you can't get your way throw a tantrum, break the law, destroy property and endanger innocent people. Guess they never hear or read the, I may not agree with what someone says buy I will fight to the death their right to say it.

Then we have a bunch of anti-Israeli students at San Diego State University who trapped the collage president in his car for nearly two hours because he wouldn't condemn those who disagreed with them in strong enough terms. Are you kidding me? Well this is what this namby-pamby liberal president gets for being him. This was a criminal act of false imprisonment by a bunch of weak-minded, fascist hate mongers. They should have all been expelled and had restraining orders put on them, their grades deleted and told to go home to mommy. This is not free speech, people.

Liberal-run San Francisco is having what it richly deserves, a major increase in crime, homelessness and drug abuse. Burglaries of homes, car break-ins, public urination/defecation and all the things that go with it are increasing exponentially. Well I said it was deserved, it's what you get with liberal socialism until the police state of socialism is implemented.

That reminds me liberals, I still have not heard from any of you "critical thinkers" just what values do you share with Muslims? Is it the kidnapping and sexual slavery of young girls? How about throwing gays off tall buildings or lynching them from lamp posts? What about cutting the heads off Jews, Christians, or any one that doesn't bow down to allah? (no capital "A", allah was a pagan moon god, not the creator).

Perhaps it is the disdain for human rights or democracy how about treating women like chattel? Okay, I give up, so tell me what it is? I really would like to hear your thinking, provided you have ever had a thought on the matter, which I strongly doubt.

Where is Bernadette Loesche and James Veverka? And how about Scott Cracraft, Ph.D.? This brain trust should be able to come up with something intelligible, wouldn't you think? They seem to have all the answers any self-respecting liberal could want. Let's see if they dare answer this question?
