Republicans resurrect The Know Nothings
I believe we should always now name the Republican Get together “The Know Nothings,” as one political social gathering was recognized within the late 1840s and 1850s.
Many Republicans nonetheless don’t imagine that “local weather change” is occurring, regardless that the planet is on hearth, horrible storms with main flooding. The glaciers are melting at report tempo internationally.
There are greater than 650,000 useless People from the COVID-19 virus and counting. We are able to blame many deaths on Trump Republicans who apparently nonetheless assume the virus is a hoax and received’t get the confirmed vaccine. They’d moderately imagine some quack physician or Fox Information and take a horse dewormer remedy. Or possibly imagine a confirmed serial liar in Trump, than the actual reality. You possibly can go to any political web site to confirm that Trump exaggerated, misstated or flat out lied some 30,000 occasions throughout his 4 years in workplace. Must be a world report.
These are the identical individuals who imagine the “Large Lie” that the election was stolen from Trump, and a few of the identical individuals have been on the riot on Jan. 6.

Come collectively to beat pandemic
Isn’t it ironic that Florida colleges require youngsters to have sure immunizations earlier than beginning faculty but the point out of obligatory COVID vaccines sends some individuals screaming about civil liberties? I’m positive these identical individuals have been taken by their dad and mom to obtain measles, mumps, and many others. vaccines with out problem.
COVID was made a political pawn from the start. In regard to masks, you aren’t being requested to chop off a finger. Merely put a bit of material over your face in public areas. For those who refuse to put on a masks round your family and friends be happy to take action however if you enter a public house, you at the moment are stepping on my private freedom by probably infecting me and others and that could be a drawback. For individuals who contend masks don’t work, subsequent time you or a member of the family want surgical procedure, ought to all these within the working room overlook about masks and robes?
This nation wants to come back collectively to beat this pandemic and cease making this a political chess recreation. Reside as much as the identify United States.

Letter not supported by details
I am appalled by your option to print a letter that makes statements based mostly on lies and rumour. A latest letter author made accusations that have been completely unsupported by truth. On this letter, the author claimed, “Appears like we’ve bought a Letter-to-the-Editor marketing campaign on the left to put in writing letters pretending to be dissatisfied Republicans.” The author additionally claimed that, “many mail-in poll guidelines have been illegally carried out on the final minute within the 2020 election by Democrats.” Neither of those statements are factual.
The primary accusation is simple to disprove just by checking voter registration — public info obtainable legally from quite a lot of sources. The second accusation is pure fiction, and a part of the “Large Lie” that nearly took down our democracy.

I want to than all of these concerned with hearth response together with however not restricted to: the nameless passerby, the Cape Coral Hearth Division, the Cape Coral Police Division, EMS, Lee County Sheriff’s Division, the native American Crimson Cross who gave us a debit card to make use of for emergency funds, the three TV information crews and our quite a few neighbors. It’s estimated that it’s going to take three to 4 months to make repairs.

Voters to guage pandemic response
Nearly daily there are extra opinions voiced and extra information gadgets printed that tackle the pandemic. And virtually daily the main focus seems to be on people who find themselves making an attempt to do every part of their energy to belittle people who’re making an attempt to do their half to place the pandemic behind us — whether or not it is individuals who attempt to amuse their viewers by refusing to masks up on airplanes, individuals who criticize those that get vaccinated, individuals and elected “leaders” who criticize training officers who’re making an attempt to maintain colleges open whereas protecting them secure for college students and workers.
Opinions rely however votes rely extra. If I perceive the present polls accurately, the 2022 elections may see present elected officers who stand in the best way and politicize a well being problem being faraway from their positions.
