Actions of anonymous rescuers changed our lives for the better

To The Daily Sun,

I would like to take a moment to express deepest gratitude to the anonymous men and women who assisted in the rescue of our son and his two friends from their capsized canoe on Lake Opechee on the evening of Tuesday, July 21.

These extraordinarily lucky young men now have the rest of their lives to look forward to simply due to their rescuers generosity and care for other human beings. The outcome of the other evening could have been so much worse.

We have made sure our young adults have learned from their mistake and, rest assured, they will take safety more seriously. We only hope they have the opportunity to assist someone else in the future in the same way you, anonymous rescuers, have done for them. Your actions have truly changed our lives for the better.

Politicians had better note growing dissatisfaction in heartland

To The Daily Sun,

Monday morning I read an interesting article in the middle of the paper (not The Sun), below the fold. According to this story a sheriff, David Clark Jr., used Twitter to say the reason President Obama responded to the killings of our military people in Tennessee "with what amounted to a shrug" was because none of the victims looked like Trayvon Martin. I wonder how many other people have come to that conclusion, but have refrained from voicing the thought publicly?

Well I can't blame those who think that, after all the president rushed to judgment to defend black "victims", but he just doesn't seem to care when a young white woman is gunned down by an illegal immigrant, felon back after five deportations. Nor does he have care to call the massacre of four unarmed Marines and a sailor what it was, an act of terrorism by a Muslim terrorist. Clearly that is because both of these murderous attacks can be traced right back to Obama's policy decisions.

He refuses to allow the enforcement of our immigration laws as he swore to do when taking the oath of office, not once but twice. He refuses to admit that radical Islam is at war with our nation and our people and decides to follow the political correct mantra rather then being the leader this nation so desperately needs.

Liberal Democrats are confused and astounded that their efforts to destroy Donald Trump's candidacy have failed and in fact "the Donald" is garnering much unexpected support just baffles them. I confess I to was surprised, but have come to understand that Trump is giving voice to the millions of just regular folks who sick and tired of the liberal elites violation of our laws and common sense. The Marxist socialists like Obama and Hillary lie, cheat and do and say anything to get power and with power are determined to transform our Republic into a communist, socialist state with them and their kind installed as perpetual rulers with all the wealth and privilege that comes with it. The rest of the people be damned as useful idiots or serfs necessary to serve the ruling elites.

But resentment is building, the more people experience of failures and folly, lies and deceit the less they trust these "progressives" and support continues to grow for Trump. Whether or not the movement will grow into a game-changing force or not, politicians had better take account of the growing dissatisfaction and anger in our heart lands. Failure to understand and respond appropriately may spell disaster for many seeking election for one position or another.
