To The Daily Sun,
The only message I see from Steve Earle’s predictable response to my May 30 column is his inability to comprehend what he reads. Why continue to point out the losers? You think it doesn’t exist on the Democratic side? If that is what you think, I believe, Steve, then you are as foolish as you are hate-filled. I only have 1,000 words to make a point, and I tend to concentrate on what I see locally. I’m not writing for people in Nashua or Boston ... or those poor Kentucky and West Virginia coal miners who actually think they’ll get jobs back but — like Steve — cannot discern rhetoric from truth.
The shame here, Steve, is that you won’t see the kids that will be born into this country now achieve maturity. This is not about losing — it is about the future of our children, our environment, and our country, and it is crystal clear that you (and President Trump) don’t give a fat rat’s patootie about any of them or those of us already here.
Poor Steve — I blasted Hillary regularly at the beginning of the campaign, but you either didn’t listen, didn’t read, or were too busy playing “Pin The A-Bomb On The Muslim.” It is time for you to grow up and look out for someone other than yourself. You know, it took eight years of Bill Clinton to undo the economic damage of eight years of Ronald Reagan. Left unchecked, it will take far longer to undo the damage that President Trump is inflicting on America and the world — economically and ecologically. But as I said, by then you’ll be 6-feet under, enjoying the grass growing above you.
