Letter to the Editor


I enjoy reading quotes. They are short, thought provoking and often prophetic. As I watch my America being played out on TV today, I think about so many quotes that were written by intelligent people of past generations. A good example is Mainstream Media…better described as Fake News by President Trump. I think about these quotes by Mark Twain:

“Get your facts first then you can distort them as you please.”
“A lie gets halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”
“Its easier to fool people than to convince them they have been fooled.”

Remember these frequently used answers: I do not recall, I cannot recall, I do not recollect, the way I remember it, I cannot recall as I sit here, I do not remember, my memory fails me, that is not how I remember it….etc. from Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Jim Comey….here are more Mark Twain quotes for this group.

“If you tell the truth you don’t have to remember anything.”
“One of the most striking differences between a cat and a lie is that a cat only has nine lives.”

In retrospect, either before or after President Trump’s tweet, we have yet to clear that up, James Comey, decided to ask his friend to LEAK some maybe or maybe not facts to the press……here are two appropriate quotes for James Comey.

“It is always wise to look ahead, but difficult to look further than you can see.” -Winston Churchill-
“We are masters of the unsaid words but slaves of those we let slip out.” -Winston Churchill-

Neither I, nor America…. will forget the 2700 page passage of Obamacare.

“This report, by its very length, defends itself against the risk of being read.” -Winston Churchill-

Maybe George Soros and other groups and organizations… who contribute to the destruction and hatred in some of our colleges and towns around our country ….can save a little money if they consider this quote from John Kennedy after the truth had been leaked about the upcoming election.

“I just received this wire from my generous Daddy:

Dear Jack, Don’t buy a single vote more than is necessary. I’ll be damned if I am going to pay for a landslide.”

Remember when conversation was simple? I really miss the TV news people who used simple sentences. For example: If they found a dead unicorn in the road, they would report. “Today it was reported that a dead unicorn was found on Possum Trot Road.”

Today they would say: “Today an anonymous source reported that a dead unicorn was found on Possum Trot Road. It is our belief that, at the end of the day, this may be just a Nothingburger. Of coarse, we cannot say for sure, perhaps it is a dead unicorn. We have tried, without response to contact this anonymous source but we cannot reach them because they are anonymous. We do not want you to assume that we agree that it is a unicorn because we may have to correct it in the future.” (Thank God for commercials.)

“The short words are best, and the old short words are best of all.” -Winston Churchill-

I always like to exit the stage with a positive exchange. I am so grateful that President Trump eliminated many regulations that may help revive American companies.

“If you have ten thousand regulations you destroy all respect for the law.” -Winston Churchill-
