On Donald Trump

On Donald Trump

To the Editor, Donald Trump loves everybody.….until someone criticizes or disagrees with him. Then he is not one to reflect on criticism. Instead, as we have seen, he becomes extremely vindictive and, with great relish, sets out to destroy that person. This would be a frightening tendency if possessed by a person able to exercise the powers of the U.S. presidency. I believe it would be irresponsible to give Donald Trump those powers.

Loveland Sales Tax on Food

Loveland Sales Tax on Food

  Should Loveland eliminate its sales tax on food? I say no for three reasons; Elimination would cost the city $6.2 million per year. Elimination would remove the city's most stable revenue source; the only one that will be there for us in good times and bad. Its negative effects can be mitigated. First, how I rate a tax: Is it progressive or regressive, stable or volatile, painful or barely noticeable? Four examples: Income tax:   Progressive and barely noticeable, but volatile. In ...

Women vote: 2014

Women vote: 2014

Dear Editors: Have you noticed that all the while opposite-world conservative republicans are demeaning and patronizing women voters with insulting ads connecting their candidates' names to wedding dresses, or instructing young women not to vote, that they're also hiring women to do all the mud-slinging and fear-mongering in their political ads. But then conservatives have always made women do their dirty work - literally. And obviously want them to continue to do so. Maybe they think they're ... Full Story
