Letters to the editor

Voice of the people
A lot of high-ranking elected government officials
are being “asked” to resign over something they
did years ago, when they were teenagers in college.
Something stupid, but everybody else was doing it,
too. Apparently it doesn’t matter what or how much
good they’ve done since they matured, or entered
public life. Oh no! Somebody put on black-face or
wore a Confederate Army uniform to a fraternity
party. Hang the culprits! We can’t allow such degener-
ates to hold public office!!
I urge everybody, especially those of us who call
ourselves “Christian” to pause and remember two
things. First, let he who is without sin cast the first
stone. If everybody had their college, or high school
days exposed for public fare, I really doubt any of
us would be very happy. I know I made some huge
“mistakes” in my youth, and I sure as hell don’t want
them publicized.
Second, forgive us our trespasses as we forgive
those who trespass against us... Forgiving somebody
who wronged you isn’t easy. I know. But if we expect
God to forgive our sins we commit against Him, we
should be man (or woman) enough to forgive those
who hurt us.
If we’re going to condemn someone for doing
something foolish when they were 18, or 22, why do
we allow people in that age range to vote? Science
says that the human brain doesn’t mature until
around age 25, or so I’ve read. Really, we need to raise
the voting age so fewer immature people will be gum-
ming up the works with stupid votes. If they’re not
responsible for pranks at that age, what makes their
votes responsible?
Don’t misunderstand my position. I do not condone
anybody doing a black-face as a joke or frat hazing or
anything else. I do think that way too many people
are way too thin-skinned and look for opportunities to
play offended when there was no intent to offend, and
most sane people wouldn’t think of being offended.
We were all kids once, immature young people
with no thought to the future, nor what it holds. If
people cannot look at what a person/candidate/public
official has done recently, as in his/her careers, then
I submit there isn’t a person alive worthy of public
One more Biblical quote to get people thinking,
judge not, lest ye be judged by the same merit.
Cameron Triplett

Owns label
It puzzles me why Mr. Triplett feels it necessary to
point out that I must be or certainly am a liberal in his
recent letters. I’ll wear that badge proudly if it means
I am for equal pay for women, national healthcare for
all citizens, equal rights for people of the LGBT com-
munity, sensible gun control, sensible immigration
policies, having the rich pay their fair share (elimi-
nating the cap on social security tax, etc), increasing
the minimum wage so that people who work full time
hours don’t have to access the welfare system just to
be able to eat, looking into the justice system to make
sure the minorities are not being treated differently,
affordable college tuition, etc. In other words taking
care of people — all people and not just the 1 percent.
I have my opinions and he has his. I’ll just leave it
at that.
