LETTER: GOP should follow principle on Supreme Court nomination
I consider myself a conservative Republican but I also try to put principles above politics. I find it necessary at times to speak against my own party when I feel it is wrong. The controversy over naming a new U.S. Supreme Court justice to replace the late, great Antonin Scalia is...

Letter: Sympathy for Mr. Lagoon
Poor Steve Lagoon. He tried to be honest about his party's problems, and look what happened -- he was rudely creamed by a pair of "proud Republicans" (Stanton/ Marum letter, June 10). As they themselves said, "[W]e do need leaders but with this kind of negativity, who would want...

Viewpoint: Reasons for a low opinion of Bush
In a recent letter, ("Republicans need new leaders," Bulletin, June 3), I was very critical of the leadership of George W. Bush during his presidency. With this editorial I hope, at least in part, to explain the reason why I have such a low opinion of Bush. Bush will be forever...

Letter: Bush bungled everything? That's not true
Hey Steve Lagoon: You say "George W. Bush was one of the worst presidents he bungled practically everything he touched." We say: Would you have rather had eight years of Al Gore and John F. Kerry? Do you think they would have kept us free from attacks by Islamofacists? Would...

Letter: Republicans need new leaders
This is hard for me to say, but I will just say it anyway. I am a Rep... a Republican. There, I said it. Am I embarrassed to admit it? Yes, given the current state of the Republican Party. It feels more like a funeral than a party! The Republican Party is like a ship adrift on...

Viewpoint: A response to a rubuttal to a response
I would ask Steve Lagoon (Feb. 18 Viewpoint, Bulletin) to read a bit more carefully before he dashes off rebuttals, as I'm certainly not naive enough to claim that "there aren't millions of illegal immigrants working in America." And with regard to your labeling me as an "ostrich,"...

Viewpoint: Rebuttals to two readers' responses

Viewpoint: Writers - Remember the facts
In last week's Bulletin, there was a Viewpoint by Steve Lagoon and a letter from the prolific Thomas St. Martin that I would like to comment on. Mr. Lagoon is probably right about the trade agreements needing some tweaking or termination. Far too many jobs have been lost by companies...

Letter: 'Tired refrain' trotted out again
In his Jan. 28 Viewpoint article, Steve Lagoon trots out the tired refrain that "Millions of American workers are unemployed because illegal immigrants have taken their jobs." Studies, of course, have shown that this is untrue --and although I know a number of persons who have...

Viewpoint: One-armed economic advice to fix the economic downturn
There can be little doubt that America is experiencing one of the greatest economic downturns in generations. I want to offer my humble advice on how to fix the current situation. If you are parking a car in a parking lot, and you pull too far ahead and bump into another car, the...

Steve Lagoon (Viewpoint, Dec. 10) challenges me to show evidence that the Illinois bill Barack Obama opposed would have required resuscitative medical treatment for pre-viable fetuses, as opposed to simple palliative care.

Viewpoint: Lagoon responds to critics of abortion Viewpoint
