Frankly, I think that The Sun News is a fine newspaper. However, as of late, it appears that Donald Trump bashing has taken a quantum leap into space. Cartoons of Trump holding an AR-15 with dead people with holes in them around him after the Florida massacre are just one example.
I’m starting this letter as an old World War II veteran who took part of four major battles: North Africa, Sicily Italy, Iwa Jima and Okinawa. I know what war is. It’s from nations hating each other, but now it seems the American people are beginning to be at war among ourselves. The people seem to have a hate for the policeman and other lawmakers. This is wrong, horribly wrong.
Too often we look past deeds that deserve recognition and say nothing. We in Myrtle Beach have witnessed the very successful promotion of our home as an extremely desirable vacation destination. We have spent millions of dollars in an effort to entice visitors to come and take advantage of all that we have to offer, and we have vigorously presented our beaches as the jewel of our offerings.
Thanks and hats off to Jim Ruth for his column, “I Hate Donald Trump, but I might vote for him,” giving voice to many of us would-be, or wannabe, or maybe, Trump supporters. And also for pointing out the key question - yet to be decided – which is just how long can we stomach Trump’s personal and political foibles in order to stop Hillary Clinton and her Leninist roadies from sinking the country with their brand of narcissistic, self-dealing incompetence?
Your recent story entitled “J-What? Foreign students work their way into Carolina culture” seems intent on maligning a very important cultural exchange program despite the positive views of the participants quoted in the article and recent improvements to the program.
I live in the Arcadia Ridge subdivision located right off of the “Restaurant Row” section of Myrtle Beach. Since we live directly off Chestnut Road, we must drive by the dilapidated “Thee Doll House” structure with it's offensive “Girls Girls Girls” sign multiple times a day.
Assault weapons have one purpose and one purpose only - to kill as many people as possible in as short a time as possible. The United States is the only country in Western Europe or North America where a citizen can purchase such a weapon, and an overwhelming percentage of Americans support a ban on their sale (we are not allowed to purchase things like hand grenades, bazookas or mortars). Also, the banning of the sale of assault weapons does not effect the Second Amendment rights of citizens to purchase handguns or most types of rifles.
The theme of the Republican National Convention's second night was "Make America Work Again." As Tuesday came to an end, we knew no more about what Donald Trump and the party that officially nominated him would do to make America work again.
“Thank you” seems inadequate, but it’s the only thing I can do. On our drive to Myrtle Beach, we had some car trouble right in front of Olyphic Baptist Church. We accidentally set off the alarm. Therefore, help would soon arrive – either the police or a church employee.
Hooray for the reader in Myrtle Beach who recently wrote about your biased reporting of Donald Trump. This has not gone unnoticed by our family, either. Everything you ever publish about Trump, whether it's a reprint from another pro-Democrat paper or written by your own “reporters,” it is always negative.
With the Democratic and Republican conventions taking place, let us pray for the peace of Jehovah Shalom to reign supreme over these cities and other cities across our nation this summer and through the rest of the year.
