Letters to the Editor

Setting the record straight

BND letter writer Frankie Seaberry’s latest harangue shows her complete ignorance of this country’s problems and of the dangers we face. She is so enthralled with President Obama simply because he is black; she cannot see the ocean for the waves.

Seaberry’s letters are full of errors, but I will only address the most grievous. She says I stopped writing to this forum for a while because I was “pouting” over Obama’s election. This is pure mendacity. I stopped writing because my letters were so censored that I hardly recognized them as I so stated.

She writes that Obama did not send young Americans into harm’s way. Thousands of U.S. troops have been killed or wounded in Afghanistan since Obama became president. If he didn’t send them there, who did?

Seaberry seems to believe it is OK for Iran to have nuclear weapons. If ignorance were bliss, Seaberry would be the happiest person on earth.

As far as Hillary Clinton is concerned, she has become the poster child for all sleazy politicians. She uses her social and political positions to engage in shady deals with foreign governments in exchange for appalling speaking fees and millions of dollars to the Clinton foundation. She has destroyed evidence and has obvious conflicts of interest.

Clinton cannot become president based on her being a woman alone. She doesn’t have much else.
