Impeach Trump? OK
I consider myself neither Republican or Democrat but independent.
I voted for President Barack Obama in 2008 simply because I considered U.S. Sen. John McCain to be past his time.
I voted for Donald Trump in 2016, but he has served his purpose by keeping Hillary Clinton away from the White House and appointing the right person to the Supreme Court.
Never miss a local story.
I couldn’t care less if he were impeached, preferably sooner than later.

Quit bugging Trump
I am not a fan of Donald Trump, but has anyone else noticed the constant barrage of media coverage on every aspect of his daily life?
No one is off-limits, including his wife and children.
Whether you are a Democrat or Republican, please remember that he was elected fair and square.
What Melania wore to an event or what Donald ate for lunch — I don’t care.

Healthcare for all
The shooting that took place on the Virginia baseball field was a tragic event, carried out by a seemingly disturbed individual.
Only God knows why he did this.
Speaker Paul Ryan said something truly special happened because of it -- Republicans and Democrats came together, not just for a baseball game but to show gratitude to law enforcement. He refers to the victims as brothers and sisters.
I would like to use some of his eloquent words to describe another tragic event. It would be just as tragic, with perhaps far greater consequences if 23 million brothers and sisters lose their health care.
If this happens to one of us it affects all of us. And I would like to ask him to join in and show the country and the world that we are one nation united in our humanity by providing affordable healthcare for everyone.
Maybe Republicans and Democrats can come together and accomplish this.

Planet’s just fine?
Richard Greene concludes his recent opinion piece (“The irrelevancy of the Paris Accord,” June 11) by stating that according to NASA’s findings of significant increases in polar ice in the past 25 years, “the planet seems to be doing just fine on its own.”
In fact, the NASA study discussed shows increases in a portion of the Antarctic ice cap, not in both polar regions. While annual ice accumulations in the eastern part of the continent were static during the study period, losses in the western part accelerated.
Even if that were the total story, then we might have expected average sea levels to have fallen during that same 25-year period (since more of the world’s water would have been bound up as ice).
Instead it is well documented that average global sea levels rose by nearly 3 inches between 1993 and 2014.
As the study’s lead author observed, if the sea level rise is not coming from East Antarctica it is coming from somewhere. He noted that “it [the study] should not take away from concern about climate warming.”
Greene does a disservice to readers of this newspaper when he misstates scientific results to support his narrative.
