Do your own research instead of letting MSNBC tell you what to say

To The Daily Sun,

I'm so thankful Bernadette Loesch isn't going to "hate me back". The very thought has kept me up at night.

Really though Bernadette, I don't hate you, though I think your political views are silly, narrow-minded and without merit.

I remember well when you first started writing your letters a few years back. In one of the first ones, you accused every conservative who didn't vote for Obama of being a racist. Our reasons for rejecting Obama were clearly stated, had nothing to do with race and they have been proven out just as clearly as can be. Still you took the low road, the road of slander and personal attack. But never mind that's what liberals have been doing since the 1960s.

Also you told, insisted even, that everyone stop watching Fox News and you gave a whole list of acceptable left-leaning news sources for us to read or watch headed up by MSNBC. MSNBC has the lowest trust rating and audience of any cable news network, and for good reason. How many of their program anchors is it now who have been forced out, off the air for their foul-mouthed, unprofessional smear attacks on conservatives? As for Fox, all your accusations of lies are empty as you are unable to identify a single one. Instead you choose to label any opinion you don't like as a lie. You and L.J. Siden are just alike in that.

Now it's true I hate what Obama has done to the American people and do not separate him from his actions, and I have listed out those grievances many times and you have yet to challenge or debate a single point of my contentions except by dismissing them all as lies. Why is that, or are you unable to dispute the truth of my points? So in case you have forgotten I'll give you just a few for you to respond to if you dare.

Obama had no foreign policy experience before being elected. The results of this are being seen all over the Middle East right now today. Obama has lied over and over to the American people: He promised the most open and transparent administration ever. It is not. He promised to bring people together and be inclusive. He did not. He lied about the ACA — "If you like your Dr. you can keep your Dr." He knew that was not true. Same for the health insurance part of the ACA. And why are all his collage transcripts, admission records and travel passports still sealed until this day?

Start with these if you want, if you dare, do some homework, a little research instead of letting MSNBC tell you what to think and say for a change. I'll be waiting, but not holding my breath.

Gee I must be hitting some sore points. All the lefties are paying attention.

Obama’s decision to allow Shell to drill in the Arctic is ‘indefensible’

To The Daily Sun,

Now betrayer-of-the-environment President Obama has given Shell permission to drill for oil in the Arctic. Here's what Greenpeace released: "It's an indefensible decision," said Greenpeace Arctic campaigner Ian Duff. "The Arctic is melting rapidly because of climate change. But instead of seeing it as a warning, Shell sees profit. It wants to drill for more of the stuff that caused the melting in the first place. And all the evidence shows Shell can't drill safely in the Arctic. The extreme conditions means it's when, not if, a spill will happen."

Put blame on Obama, basketball-court guy, manicured-golf-course guy. Sell-out guy.

It ties in, too, with opening our treasure, Atlantic coast and waters to the oil industry. That's coming next. From Florida to Delaware we will see tragic oil pollution. In whale nurseries, in sea turtle habitat. Where people earn their livings with fisheries and tourism. President Obama is owned by business.

Related: April 29 is the deadline for you Sierra Club members to send in your ballots for our national board of directors. I'm voting for: Steve Ma, Joseph Manning, Allison Chin, Cliff Cockerham, Lawson Legate. I used e-mail and phone calls to discuss ocean oil-drilling with them. They are for keeping carbon-based fuels in the ground. This new permission given to Shell will appall them, activists that they are. I have more confidence in voting for Sierra Club board than in voting for politicians and presidents, that sham voting we get.

RFRA outrage is a partisan attack on a successful GOP governor

To The Daily Sun,

On his show last Sunday, George Stephanopoulos tried to deceive the American people into believing that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) supports homophobia, bigotry, and discrimination against gays. If that were true, then obviously only homophobic, bigoted people who support discrimination against gays would vote for such a law.

Apparently President Obama who voted for Illinois' RFRA is a homophobic bigot who believes it's okay to discriminate against gays.

Apparently Senators Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Kennedy (D-Mass.), 95 other Senators, all the Congressmen in 1993, and President Clinton (advised by George Stephanopoulos) are homophobic bigots who believe it's okay to discriminate against gays.

Apparently Connecticut, Illinois, 18 other states and our federal government are also homophobic, bigoted, and okay discrimination against gays, all have RFRA laws.

The first Religious Freedom Restoration Act was sponsored by Senators Kennedy and (Congressman at the time) Schumer in response to the Supreme Court decision in Employment Division v. Smith (1990), which President Clinton and nearly every senator and congressman agreed infringed on Americans' religious rights

Twenty-two years of experience with the federal and many years of experience with the 19 state Religious Freedom Restoration Acts show no support for homophobia, bigotry, or support of discrimination against gays. Nevertheless Stephanopoulos "discovered" homophobia, bigotry, and approval of discrimination against gays with the passage of the twentieth state's Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

What was actually on display on Stephanopoulos's fake news show last Sunday was simply a blatant partisan attack on Mike Pence, who is a successful Republican governor considered a possible presidential candidate.

The Religious Freedom Restoration Acts, which have been upheld in the courts as constitutional, says nothing about and has nothing to do with gays. As President Clinton said, its purpose is "to protect perhaps the most precious of all American liberties, religious freedom."

Stephanopoulos's partisan attack on Mike Pence was shameful. Unfortunately Stephanopoulos's attack is just one example of the more sinister radical leftists' widespread attacks on the religious freedoms of the American people.

Please accept my apologies, Mr. Eddy, I used your name by mistake

To The Daily Sun,

I ask that Dale Channing Eddy please accept my apologizes. Mr Eddy the correct author of the letter was a D.M. Williamson and was dated Feb. 11, 2015. While trying to print it out to re­send to The Sun for clarification it slipped and was lost. So, the date I think is February, but might be either January or March.

The only reason I sent it to The Sun was I am in a similar situation in my life with my Social Security payments due to my inconsistent job history. Might want to keep your kids aware of this, too. But anyway I am extremely sorry about using your name by mistake.

I have never written anything about 'my' Social Security

To The Daily Sun,

This is in response to Jon Hoyt's letter in Thursday's Sun:

Mr. Hoyt, on April 2 you wrote, "So Dale, one of the reason your Social Security payments are low, remember you were complaining about them in a recent letter, and the reason is that you have to work a certain number of quarters and hours to make more than you are making now."

I'm sorry, but you must have me confused with someone else as I have never written anything about "my" or anyone else's Social Security payments for the simple reason that I do not collect Social Security and won't for a few more years. It is possible my father, who has the same first name, may have done so. If he did, it would have been over six months ago as he passed away last October. If he did not, then you are misremembering who wrote about the subject.

Also, I did not brag about all my travel. I merely stated fact. Travel was required for some of my work and little of it was pleasurable. I went where my employer told me I was needed, did my job, and then moved on to my next destination. I was not sightseeing or visiting the latest trendy tourist destinations or staying at five-star hotels. I was working, period. If that's bragging, then so be it.

Dale Channing Eddy
