Trump right about serious vetting

President Trump is right: every country defends their borders simply to make sure enemies who have threatened to destroy them are properly vetted.

He also asked Democrats to join him in protecting our citizens from those who migrate here for the sole purpose of going on welfare — something that puts an economic burden on all our citizens. We now need our news media to join in helping President Trump do what seems perfectly logical and sensible, to make this country great again.

Letter about Trump must be a joke

Frankly, I cannot tell whether the letter “Liberal journalists can’t stop stirring pot,” Readers Write, Feb. 27, is serious or a pathetic exercise in satire. She speaks of a man with a quick mind who has a functional vocabulary for a fourth-grader at best. She speaks of his business successes, but then as Hillary has said “He’s written a lot of books about business. They all seem to end at Chapter 11.” He has bankrupted six companies. That is not quite what you call running a business successfully. He has also been charged many times, with lawsuits presently in the system, for not paying his workers. If I had not paid my workers, I would be chopping tall cotton today. Of course, he has no backroom dictators, they all sit right next to him. As for illegal immigrants being lawbreakers, Georgia farmers will find out this year how much labor costs without them, as will all of the states that grow crops, as their crops ripen, perhaps rotting in the fields. The price of produce will either double, triple, or even go higher than that due to his actions. If I was Mexico, I would not allow any Mexicans to come into the United States to be slaves for a season, nor would I sell my crops to the United States for a pittance. I pity those who use lawn services and they will find out that their help, often being intimidated by those who enforce immigration laws, will cease to work.

The fact that Volvo — now owned by a Chinese company — is soon to open a $500 million car plant in Berkeley County, South Carolina, must be a “slap in the face” for Georgia’s economic development community.

The Wall epitomizes the Trump approach to politics

At some level, at a basic gut level, this Trump thing was always about The Wall: The Wall as an imposing physical entity, The Wall as a symbol. The Wall as the emotional centerpiece of every rally. Donald Trump knows it. He knows it better than anyone. He knows that The Wall represents his covenant, his mutual pledge of faith to the people with the...
Misguided faith in government is unlearned lesson of LA riots

This weekend marks 100 days of the Trump administration. This milestone also coincides with a very important anniversary. Twenty-five years ago, riots exploded in Los Angeles after four policemen were acquitted in the violent beating of Rodney King. Sixty-three lives were lost in the riots, with the estimated total economic cost pegged at $1 billion...
Opinion: HPV vaccine is vote against kids’ cancers

According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), every year nearly 39,000 people in the US will develop cancer associated with the human papilloma virus (HPV).
