Letter: Ideology concept clarified
Recently, I wrote a "Viewpoint" article ("Ideology: A changing, elusive concept," Bulletin, April 22) in which I claimed, among other things, that the term "ideology" is often used by politicians, special interest groups and others to discredit or dismiss the arguments of their o...

Viewpoint: Ideology - A changing, elusive concept
Be warned. What follows is a discussion of ideology, a complex and difficult subject indeed. So if you are not up to a hard read, stop now and try a lighter fare, like maybe the latest breaking news from the Woodbury tiddlywinks tournament. But hard read or not, you may be puzzled:...

Viewpoint: Fed. gov't. Rx: 'Cookie cutter' medicine?
That unwelcome clunking sound comes from your washer. Moreover, you find water on the floor. The repair service tells you that the price of fixing the thing is not worthwhile. You decide to buy a new washer. You get into an accident that leaves some ugly dents on your car. The body...

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...

Viewpoint: Be wary of ever-increasing regulation
Now that the political left is firmly in control of the federal government -- and verging on control of the state government -- we are being told that a strong dose of government regulation is needed if we are to cure our economic and social ills. We are told, for example, that...

Letter: Don't condone what makes the world worse
Carol Turnbull (Bulletin, Dec. 10) thinks that I was not nice when I stated that a well-known Bulletin correspondent is "one of Woodbury's most vocal abortion advocates." My response? I was merely pointing out what is demonstrably true. If Turnbull has doubts in this regard,...

Letter: Tired of the name-calling
As I said previously, I'm really tired of the "abortion debate." But I'm also tired of name-calling, which Mr. St. Martin engages in (again) when he refers to Ms. Denn as "one of Woodbury's most vocal abortion advocates" (Viewpoint, Dec. 3). "Pro-life" is such a warm fuzzy term...

Viewpoint: Writer's response was 'flat out wrong'
In a recent letter to the Bulletin, one of Woodbury's most vocal abortion advocates, Joyce Denn, dogmatically stated that a previous writer, Steve Lagoon, was "flat out wrong" in saying that Barack Obama, as an Illinois state senator, "voted to deny medical care for babies who survive...

Viewpoint: At odds with ' voter's guide for the faithful'
In a recent letter titled "A Voter's Guide For the Faithful" (Bulletin, Letters, Oct. 22), the writer, like so many ill-informed people today, indicted the Catholic church for a number of sins, including the now widely accepted but jejune version of the Galileo affair. He then went...

Letter: Bachmann is not a 'Bush lackey'
It seems that George W. is not too popular these days, being blamed for everything from global warming to bank failures. Bush bashing, then, is definitely "in." So why not tie every Republican candidate to George's tarnished coat tails, telling the voters that a vote for anyone on...

Letter: Don't reflexively bash 'extremism'
A fatuous letter in a recent Woodbury Bulletin asserted that Sixth Congressional district Rep. Michele Bachmann does not represent "all" of the residents of her district. As if any politician has ever represented everyone's views and needs, no exceptions.

If you doubt that we are in the midst of very silly, nasty, political season, listen to a few of the political advertisements that, among other things, now regularly interrupt our television programs. (For our part, we make liberal use of the mute button.) Specifically, consider the...

Global warming aficionados typically claim that an overwhelming number of scientists think that climate change is human induced, raising the specter of rising sea levels, widespread droughts and other assorted disasters. Those who hold such views might be surprised, then, to learn...
