LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Let’s stop watching Fox news shall we?

Let’s stop watching Fox news shall we?

This is in response to Jim Ferrells article on July 23, 2014 regarding Fox News and Republicans misguided.

Jim, Jim, Jim … we get it. All Republicans are bad and all Democrats are good. You have been saying that for years … okay so move on to something else.

I will admit you did state something we “all” can agree on and I quote you. “Despite the fact that Issa has wasted millions of our tax dollars on investigations and hearings he has thus failed to produce one shred of evidence that shows Lerner acted legally.” Rather odd don’t you agree Jim?

So here the deal … If it is proved Lerner acted “illegally” you have to stop your silly articles and agree to watch Fox news for one year. If she is proved innocent, I promise to stop watching Fox News for one year. I think the odds are in my favor.

Even better, you could stop by their office and see them face to face and have an opportunity to discuss issues directly with them.

Thomas Knapp: Impeachment: The Problem with Biden Whataboutism

The main Democratic impeachment charge against president Donald Trump is simple: Trump attempted to pressure and/or bribe the president of Ukraine to investigate a political opponent (Joe Biden), House impeachment managers say, both for corrupt motives (to win re-election) and in violation of the law (by withholding congressionally appropriated aid).

Thomas Knapp: Afghanistan, Oh, when will we ever learn?

“U.S. officials failed to tell the truth about the war in Afghanistan throughout the 18-year campaign,” the Washington Post’s Craig Whitlock reports. “Making rosy pronouncements they knew to be false and hiding unmistakable evidence the war had become unwinnable.”

Tim Burke: Stargazing makes most things seem insignificant

Stargazing is popular here in the Mojave Desert away from the bright lights of Las Vegas. Death Valley National Park holds its Dark Sky Festival this February 21-23, 2020.
