To The Daily Sun,
The Aug. 21 issue has several letters deserving comment.
To Bernadette Loesch: We get it; you don't like Donald Trump or Republicans. But where's your useful comment related to the drug or the illegal immigration problems? Drug kingpins already are major targets in the war on drugs. You start getting evidence against the kingpins by arresting users and pushers. You must deal with the users because they harm innocent people to get money for drugs, and, of course, without users there would be no illegal drug problem.
If you open immigration to everyone wanting to escape "horrendous living conditions", billions of people will come here; all of them will consider you part of the 1 percent.
No one claimed a border wall/fence solves the illegal immigration problem. Yet a wall/fence, promised by Congress, would help address about 60 percent of the problem. About 40 percent of the problem is from visa violators.
A good wall/fence coupled with good interior enforcement of our immigration laws would discourage illegal immigration which would reduce the number of families separated by illegal immigration, deaths and sexual assaults during illegal border crossings, and the number of Americans harmed by illegal aliens.
To James Veverka: Just because you said there is a consensus on man-made-global-warming doesn't make it true or relevant since facts aren't determined by consensus. Michael Crichton wondered why so many critics of man-made global warming were retired scientists and professors. Following that thought, I will concede: There appears to be a consensus among "scientists" who want future government funding that their "research" needs to support the "solutions" to the man-made-global-warming hoax that benefits the politicians and bureaucrats.
For Mike Dowal: Since the 1950s America has been driving jobs out of our country due to excessive government policies, taxes, requirements (e.g., Obamacare), bureaucratic delays and costs (adding 15 percent to average business costs); hostile union practices; increasing energy costs; and bad management.
Adding threats and more government controls won't encourage employers to keep or grow jobs here, investors to create new jobs here, or for good jobs to return here. If we stop driving jobs away and make the U.S. the best place to conduct business, then businesses will invest and create good jobs here.
Unfortunately President Obama either doesn't know how to, or doesn't care to make the U.S. the best place to create and grow businesses. Hopefully our next president has the knowledge and cares enough about the American people to create a strongly growing economy so that every American can get a good job.
