TOWN HALL: Neighbor citizens

Print Article

In regard to Mr. Kinne’s accusations about the recent town hall meeting with our absent representatives. It wasn’t an anti-Trump rally, but an open town hall for all to ask questions and express their concerns to the Idaho elected officials who dodge any critical questions from the people who elected them and simply reply with standard form letters, summarizing any issue why they oppose it. Really!

Bringing up Benghazi again after it has been proven false?

Taxes? Every open president for 40 years has shared their taxes to show they are upfront and honest? Trump? NOPE! What is he hiding, along with no public visitor logs now? Why the secrecy? Russia on his mind?

I agree with you about focus on ethics, morality, (Government?), economy for the working people, societal successes? Do you mean non-discrimination, love all your fellow citizens, accepting legally immigrating families, practicing God’s 10 Commandments, and working together in Congress for all the people’s best welfare and practicing true democracy in government?

Taxes? Remember how great America was in the ’50s when the rich paid very high tax rates around 70-80 percent?

Getting back to those awful San Francisco troublemakers, sir. That isn’t us. We are all around you as your neighbors.

Our open town hall meeting was open to you and all others to come and say whatever in a civil fashion. We embrace free speech.

Religious freedom? Does that mean all religions or just yours?

The U.S. Constitution? We love it.

CIVILITY: An unlikely example

June 21, 2017 at 5:00 am | Coeur d'Alene Press There is a lot of this “We hate Trump or We Love Trump” that I read in The Press. How about printing what Ted Nugent said? He backed off, and said that he regretted asking Mr. Obama to “Suck on my ma...
