Let me think:
1. If we are at war with ISIS, then we should raise taxes to pay for it and not borrow like we did with the Iraq war?
2. Those people who want “boots on the ground” in the Middle East, should they not get their sons, daughters, grandsons and granddaughters to enlist so that our wars are fought by a cross-section of society?
3. Should not everyone do one of the above because when at war we all need to sacrifice like I did not — nor many of the people reading this — for the Iraq war?
4. Why are there people like Al Tikker (letter, Nov. 7) who accuse Hillary Clinton of misdeeds with Benghazi when seven committees, going on eight and spending $4 million, cannot find her responsible for any of those accusations he labeled her with? Does he apparently know something the committees don’t?
5. Why does Rep. Raul Labrador “fixing” of the sentencing procedures labeled by him to “conservatives ideals” when it was the conservatives in the early 1990s that led the legislation on mandatory sentences? Does this mean that conservative Republicans changed their minds?
Does anyone else wonder about this stuff?
