Clinton’s email woes
I continue to be amazed at the softball treatment of Hillary Clinton. (See: “Clinton agrees to turn over server, thumb drive,” Aug. 11)
It appears that she may have jeopardized the security of this nation and perhaps the lives of information sources in order to protect herself from any embarrassing revelations. When did emails concerning official State Department business become her personal property for her to determine what she would release and what she would delete?
She turned the thumb drive containing the emails over to her attorney. Did he have a security clearance? Didn’t the Obama administration prosecute Gen. David Petraeus for failure to properly handle classified information?
Never miss a local story.

Wasn’t it Secretary Clinton who braved the run at the Sarajevo airport with bullets flying everywhere?
Turned out no bullets! Nothing happened!
Brian Williams reports he was in mortal danger, gets canned for untruthful reporting and banished from the Nightly News.
Now we have the email scandal, which really is not about the content but her truthfulness, integrity and believability.
She has the ultimate chutzpah for staying in the race for president of the United States!

Those who choose to be offended seem to be increasing to the point that political correctness has reached the point of absurdity.
In every walk of life, we have those who seem to delight in inflicting harm or humiliation.
That this is true even in the police department should come as no surprise.
We must not forget, however, that most people who have an encounter with the police are suspected of some sort of unlawful activity.
As Rodney King, himself a victim of assault, said: “Can we all get along?”

Serving our vets
I was recently informed by a U.S. congressional representative that those walking the marble halls of our government buildings in Washington, D.C., do not feel a plea for medical benefits for my armed forces comrades is important.
Despite taking an oath to make the ultimate sacrifice for this nation and accomplishing our dictated duties, we are being ignored.
Vietnam-era veterans were disrespected. Now, the voices of Enewetak Atoll Cleanup Veterans go unheard (read the story at atomiccleanupvets.com).
Many, without appropriate radiological protection, picked up debris from more than 40 nuclear testing events and suffer from “invisible bullets.” Despite this, those who sent us just don’t care!

Majority should decide
I get so tired of people whining about something and it is immediately changed.
For example, “girls” signs in toy departments. Why wouldn’t a store take a survey of customers to see how many oppose the signs?
This happens all the time: prayer in schools, the Ten Commandments or a Nativity scene on display. Why can’t the majority have a voice? Why can a single person’s decision affect all of us?
Why can a group of people change the meaning of the word gay? Why has the rainbow, a sign of God’s promise, been hijacked?
Why are the colleges removing statues of Confederate soldiers who were racist? This is part of our history, and removing the statues will not change it. We should learn what happened so it will not be repeated.
I think the majority should make decisions, not a select few.
