James Comey’s new book, “A Higher Loyalty,” should not cause any concern for Trump. Reportedly, Trump has not read a book in decades. Current aides say that Trump does not ever read more than a page of anything presented to him.
Just goes to prove the old adage: Ignorance is bliss.

For awhile now, I’ve been pondering as to why more and more cars appear to have those blue handicap placards as permanent fixtures hanging from their rear-view mirrors.
Are the drivers oblivious to the danger that this presents? Haven’t they read the instructions on it to remove it when it’s not in use? Or, are they just too lazy to do so?
Whatever their reason, I’m concerned because their vision is compromised and I just might be a victim of their neglect.

The new book, “A Higher Loyalty,” by James Comey, the former FBI director, may be considered treason, but if not, at the least it is inappropriate. How can the lead investigator in a case release a book which not only details aspects of the main subject but expresses strong bias against the main subject of the investigation?
Additionally, there are federal regulations regarding releasing information obtained during investigations. One must receive special approval to release this kind of information, which is almost never granted.
Comey took an oath to protect our county. He lacks ethics and any sense of patriotism!

It seems that a major reason our country is so divided is that many people blame whoever they disagree with for everything, regardless of facts.
The author of the April 12 letter, “Mueller’s probe,” for example, states, “Democrats are desperate, using government resources for political purposes to find anything to discredit...Trump...” The problem with this vacuous statement is that Republicans rightfully authorized the probe because of known Russian interference in our election.
As the minority in both houses, the Democrats don’t have the power to do what the author stated even if they wanted to.
It is sad that we have come to this point as a nation. America has been made much weaker of late.

President Trump should recognize Ryan’s wisdom and announce his early retirement. “More time with family,” is the only card he has left.

The NRA should take a more active role nationwide in collaborating to prevent the unfortunate shootings that have occurred. Big ad campaigns should appear to raise more awareness of the dangers of having weapons falling into the wrong hands.
Tobacco companies have warnings on their packages. Ads have appeared in the media about smoking as the cause of cancer, heart damage, etc. Campaigns against drunk driving and the consequences are everywhere. Ads for seat belt requirements are also seen everywhere. And campaigns ad related to mobile phone use while driving are beginning. All these ad campaigns, and others, have been helpful in preventing death and injuries.
The same may be accomplished with ads preventing tragedies from guns.
People should bombard the NRA with letters, emails, etc. to put the pressure on them. I am not against the NRA, but I would like to see their participation in helping out with the current situation. Most of all, it will show that they care.

Where’s the party?
Can anyone explain what happened to the Tea Party? They overwhelmed the U.S. House of Representatives during the Obama presidency in 2010, sweeping Democrats out of office and ushering in True Believers.
Weren’t they all about fiscal discipline, and getting rid of “tax and spend” liberals? Now which is the party of fiscal responsibility and which is the tax and spend party that has infected our country with the massive borrowed debt?
Or is it possible that it really was white backlash to the nation’s first black president after all?
