  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: It takes time

    When the first automobile rolled off the assembly line, the people cried, “we will lose our jobs, thousands will be unemployed.” After years of torture and killing, women were finally allowed the right to vote and the people cried, “the sky will fall, our way of life is over.” It took 200 years for our country to pass a civil rights law after slavery ended to give equal rights to every citizen. It takes time to change.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Unsupported by evidence

    The Veterans Health Administration patient case load across all healthcare enrollment priority group categories went from 3.7 million patients in 2000 to 5.9 million patients in 2012 (, an increase of approximately 57 percent, a far cry from Mr. Tilly’s claim of an increase of 300 percent.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: VA still underfunded

    My recent letter to the editor concerning the backlog of servicemen awaiting VA medical care stated the VA is hugely underfunded. This statement was disputed in Mr. Picou’s letter because the VA has received about a 93 percent increase in funding since 2001. But what Mr. Picou omitted is that the VA case load has more than tripled since 2001. The VA would need a three hundred percent increase in funding to meet new demands. Wars are very expensive.

    What part of no danger don’t you understand?

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Had enough yet?

    The Obama administration has come under heavy fire recently over the Gitmo Five terrorist prisoner release; not only from conservatives, but even some liberal supporters have had a voice over this issue. Add to that all of the past and ongoing scandals, mistruths and lies over his healthcare program.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Opening voters’ eyes

    I applaud Aaron Renaud for his persistent attempts outlined in his June 10 letter to the editor to open voters’ eyes to the misdeeds of Phil King. I would encourage all who care about ethics in politics to do their homework.
