Bob Giuda has quietly helped many of us & people should know it

To The Daily Sun,

I am home-bound with terminal emphysema and confined to a wheelchair. But I do have several bright spots in my life, and one of them is Bob Giuda.

Bob regularly comes to our home to bring communion and visit me and my husband. He has quietly helped other people behind the scenes too, and I think that people should know it. He cares deeply about his neighbor and about our country and our state, and he would make a great state senator.

Bob Giuda is a kind, caring man with amazing life story, and I hope you"ll join me in voting for Bob for state Senate.

The factors of fear & anger in Germany, circa the 1980s, are here now

To The Daily Sun,

What eras are Donald Trump thinking of when he says, "Make America great again"? Was he thinking of our response to World War II? The Reagan years? Some things were better then, some now. How would he make us great again? By making better deals? By building a wall on the Mexican border? I remember when Ronald Reagan said, "Tear down this wall," referring to the Berlin wall.

He thinks that global warming is a hoax. What if all those scientists are right? Maybe we should stop using fossil fuels.

Mike Pence is Trump's running mate. Mike Pence's role model is Dick Cheney. Remember the war in Iraq?

Donald Trump has accused Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton of lying. But he lies more than they do. In the final debate, he accused the State Department of losing $6 billion. He said to Hillary, "Just like when you ran the State Department, $6 billion was missing. How do you miss $6 billion? You ran the State Department, $6 billion was either stolen. (Sic) They don't know. It's gone, $6 billion." One of many examples, a fact check by the Washington Post revealed:

"Trump misunderstands a $6 billion figure that appeared in a 2014 management alert from the State Department Inspector General. The alert summarized a variety of recent audits that indicated paperwork deficiencies in closing out contracts that were issued in Iraq, Afghanistan and Africa. But no money is missing or lost, a point that the IG emphasized in a letter to The Washington Post in 2014. Instead, the alert highlighted missing paperwork, not dollars."

The factors of fear and anger in Germany in the 1930s are present here now, although to a lesser degree. I hope the result is different.
