I don't know who called Obama our 'imperial president' but it was certainly apt description

To The Daily Sun,

Fox News, the company the left loves to hate. Someone must have sent out a notice to all the "progressives" telling them to write derogatory letters to the editor slamming Fox.

Peter Davis wrote one stating that he turned on a "newscast" on Fox and the first words he heard "Our imperial president". Apparently he immediately changed the channel as he stopped with that comment. I doubt that Mr. Davis knows the difference between reporting and commentary and opinion. He didn't say which "reporter" made this statement as then someone could check the veracity of his statement.

Fox News is definitely a conservative-leaning channel with many conservative commentators, but it also has many liberal commentators on its various programs. Most of the programs on Fox are discussion sessions with various emcees and guests and not news programs, although the topics discussed are many and timely. The programs that are news programs are titled as such and you won't hear any opinion on those programs just the news. Thankfully we have Fox as all of the network channels are leftist and omit anything from their broadcasts that might in any way prove harmful to the Democratic Party.

I wonder if we'll be reading any letters from the lefties about NBC's Brian Williams being caught in a lie and then when apologizing for it compounded it with another lie. He claimed he was on an aircraft in Iraq that got hit by enemy fire. That's lie one. And then during his trying to weasel out of the lie he stated that he had to suffer two harrowing nights on the aircraft in the desert which also was proven to be untrue. This is the No. 1 newsman on NBC, who the left fawns over.

In closing let me say that I don't know who called Obama "our imperial president", but I think it's an apt description that I totally agree with.

All followers of Islam are not terrorists and all terrorists are not true followers of Islam

To The Daily Sun,

Mr. Young, you guys just never give up, do you? Always trying to connect the president to some sort of controversy that would make him anti-American. Are you really trying to deny that those who practiced slavery in the South didn't hide behind religion, or the Crusades were connected to Christianity? The objective of the Crusades was to take back previously conquered Christian territory. I'm sure some of the slave owners would have called themselves religious people or Christians. They did live in the Bible Belt.

So, does that mean all religious people or Christians were slave owners or believed in slavery? I doubt it, and I never heard any sort of justification in the name of Christ for slavery or the actions of slave owners. As a matter of fact, slavery was almost outlawed before we even became a country on some of the earlier drafts of the Declaration of Independence because we were a religious country. So using that as a basis, I feel, that is the reason President Obama will not use the two words together.

All those who practice Islam are not terrorists and all terrorists are not true followers of Islam. But those that promote jihad are the ones we have to worry about those are the real terrorists, no matter what religion they practice be it Christianity or Islam.
