You don't only attack a business, you attack its clients as well

To The Daily Sun,

I am writing in regards to the attacks on the Mayhew Funeral Home by Mrs. Pillsbury.

Her choice of writing to your local newspaper instead of her local officials was clearly to get attention and not to seek results. If she were looking for answers to her concerns, her choice of attack would have been on those whom set regulations and inspect facilities such as Mayhew Funeral home and others like it in our state. Instead she aimed her attack not only on a business, but more importantly (on) that business's clients.

How would Mrs. Pillsbury feel if one of those bodies wasn't just a body but a family member of hers? Would she choose her words differently? Would her feelings change?

Mrs. Pillsbury needs to remember when she attacks a business such as Mayhew Funeral Home, she isn't only attacking that business, she is attacking that business's clients. Maybe she needs to change her tune and outlook on this hornets' nest that she has created within her community because one day it will be her on the other end.

Professor & student political views have become indistinguishable

To The Daily Sun,

If your "elitism meter" is reading low, don't fret, you can always fill your tank absorbing professor Scott Cracraft's Daily Sun column. It is abundantly clear after years of reading the writing of professors Leo Sandy and Scott Cracraft, elitism, and arrogance are the two primary character traits taught at all colleges and universities. Students are being trained by Scott and his peers to be "CRY BABIES" needing to be sheltered on campus in a "safe place" from opposing thought on every contentious issue. Divergent ideas on campus are as welcome as Hillary Clinton is at an honesty convention. Every opposing thought on campus becomes an excuse for a traumatizing, meltdown simply because the speaker might hold an opposing view. Many of the most renowned, successful people on earth working in business, science and politics are being "disinvited" to speak on college campuses because their thinking is highly unpopular with far left, professor ELITES ( like Leo and Scott) who hold "the academy" by its short hairs.
Student protests are always joined by faculty in solidarity because student views and professor views are indistinguishable. Lunatic, liberal professors JACK HAMMER far left RELIGION into students no different than a SUNDAY SCHOOL teacher does to their impressionable audience. Professors like Scott have anointed themselves the only "truth tellers" able to discern fact from fiction, truth from lies and HONEST IGNORANCE from intentional. Ask Scott to produce his BS-detecting Geiger counter truth machine, he will run, screaming for a "safe space," assailing his intellectual superiority is being challenged. This is the height of ELITISM as STINKING and ROTTEN as it gets. The students brain-washed mind becomes a miniature Scott Cracraft mind, hog tied and hot branded with all the same stifling, smothering, biases to opposing logic he demonstrates (and Leo Before him), including the great, granddaddy of them all both men's intense, contempt and aversion to capitalism. When others demand to be the FINAL ARBITER on any issue Scotts mind goes beserk.
Don't suggest to me, Scott, that your higher-ed degree provides foolproof, superman-like powers. If you do you will surely be laughed out of town on the ELITIST EXPRESS. Come on Scott, I challenge you to debate the most important issues of our times right here in The Daily Sun. We can indeed discuss those death panels, the ongoing disaster Obamacare is to taxpayers. We can debate climate predictions backed with tens of thousands of EDUCATED GUESSES that underlie every model. We can debate the snail's pace economy that Obama has produced. We can debate our deplorable tax system in need of desperate reform that is driving our best corporations to leave. We can debate every far-left, liberal backed, bankrupt, busted, trillion dollar, boondoggle program government runs. We can debate why it is with all your intelligence you have yet to figure out how to control the cost of a college education while ruining the finances of millions of main street families in the process. We can debate income and economic inequality that Obama has driven to new heights during the last 7 years. We can even discuss the 20 million people Democrats have vaporized from the middle class following Obama's HIGHER ED, PhD thinking that mirrors your own. You lack the COURAGE to discuss the UNINTENDED, negative consequences of every position you hold. Time for you to run for a "safe place". If you DON'T, it will be a great learning experience for students. We can start with those pesky death panels.
