Re: “California’s Brownout Summer: The Sequel

“I live in the High Desert about 70 miles north of Los Angeles. The wind blows at speeds of 25+ MPH pretty reliably and the sun shines daily with very few cloudy and/or rainy days. We are prime candidates for the (mis)use of solar and wind generators for electrical energy. In fact, the desert floor is being paved from one end to the other with solar farms and wind turbines. You might think electricity would be free because there is so much of it being generated. Think again. As we gaze out on seas of solar panels and wind turbines, we are doing so occasionally without power of our own due to rolling blackouts. This is a desert. It gets hot. We know that, but there will never be enough green energy to make it work.” —California

Re: “The Pandemic Moratorium on Private Property

“Virtually none of this money flowing out of the federal government in the form of one COVID-19 assistance program or another is backed by the value of labor. This money is being handed out for free. It will become worthless as we rob Peter to pay Paul and sit at home, rotting and senselessly afraid in a collapsed economy. And the socialist Democrats will wait for the collapse so they can save us by putting us back to work for their new government. That is their end game.” —Illinois

Re: “The Left’s Covert War on the Suburbs

“Term limits! The problem is our legislators have no fear of any real adverse consequences of laws they dictate. They enact laws the rest of us must endure while they enjoy the exclusions of the power elite. If our legislators were prohibited from perpetual reelection as a reward for insidiously deceitful campaigns and were forced to face living with us under their laws after their term expired, they would prohibit such onerous laws. Instead, they enjoy 24/7 security paid for by tax dollars and homes excluded from compliance with these laws while they expect us to be happy living in the projects.” —Missouri

Re: “The Democrat Architects of White Supremacy

“This is spot on! If honest history was still be taught in the schools, 99% of the graduates would understand that the Democrats fought for slavery and tried earnestly to retain it. They are not friends of the blacks or the underclasses. But alas, such is no longer taught because the liberal coup in government runs the unconstitutional Department of Education, and parents do not teach their children the historical truth but leave it up to the liberal babysitters (liberal teachers) of their children in what is called public education but is really public indoctrination.” —Iowa

Re: “Is the Fight for Freedom Really Worth It?

“The GI had to admire the Vietnamese people for their efforts made to support the military. I worked at a port in Da Nang and the workers were dedicated to the war effort.  The women worked as checkers and fork lift workers. At the hooch the women were maids. I also admire how they have worked hard here in the USA. They prefer to have their own business and work hard to provide income so that their children can have a college education. Because we talk about our shared history with their country, I have found them to be loyal friends of like mind regarding capitalism.” —Kansas
