Stranger things

Yes, to the Sound Off comment about weird plant behavior. Two groups of my spring-flowering bulbs have sprouted. These are established bulbs that sprout every year in early March. Will I have Easter lilies for Halloween?

Ruining things

When the draft was in full swing during Vietnam, I enlisted, knowing full well that I might not come home alive. That is a consideration we all had to make. Now, as always, the liberals are throwing trash at Trump for saying something that I would probably have said, making a big deal of it. I have been a Democrat since 1965, used to vote for them, and have quit, seeing how they are ruining this country. I voted for Trump, and will vote for him again if he runs.

Real heroes

I was touched by the honesty of a cashier at our neighborhood Walmart store. A young mother accidentally gave her two $20 bills stuck together as payment for the purchase. The cashier quickly gave her back the $20 along with her change and a friendly reminder to be careful with new bills. This served as a reminder to me that we live among everyday heroes.

My Trump tweet

If I were President Trump I would Tweet: I am tired of all this bantering back and forth with Sen. Corker. He has his opinions and I have mine. He is entitled to his opinion and I am entitled to mine. We should work together to move America forward.

Sad state

I am staring in disbelief at today’s opinion column title: “Trump tax cuts would be a win for the GOP, a disaster for the rest of us.” In what world does this happen? That what hurts the voters is good for the politicians elected to represent them? Our American ideals are under assault. Disgusting!

Good riddance

Republican U.S. Sen. Flake and Corker are declining to run for re-election because they cannot win. On their way out, however, they are trying to smear President Trump in every conceivable way. They represent the resentful GOP pool of the swamp. Angry that they cannot control the president. Exactly. Leave.

Please explain

What’s up with the ball-field lights being on until 10 p.m. at Hiller Park when no one is there?

Human nature

Many people are all excited about this little cool spell. Soon they will be complaining about how cold it is. Reminds me of a poem: As a rule, man is a fool; When it’s hot, he wants it cool; When it’s cool, he wants it hot; Always wanting what is not.
