Barron Trump cartoon inappropriate


Tuesday, September 25, 2018

I can't believe the Reflector would print the cartoon of Barron Trump writing the anonymous New York Times op ed ostensibly written by someone who hates his dad.

Are you folks not aware of the mass murders and suicides due to bullying going on in our schools?

Young people are very impressionable. They believe just about everything they see and hear from adults who are in positions of authority. In fact these issues have been written about, shown on TV and discussed on Facebook and everywhere else all the time lately.

Freedom of the press does not mean editors and publishers can print any thing that sells even if they happen to have a monopoly in the area where their paper is printed

When freedom of the press goes or is tampered with, as it was in this case, it is on its way out the door and along with it all our freedoms as well. History has demonstrated that is how just about how every dictatorship takes over.

I know you are aware of what I have just written. And I'm sure many adults found the cartoon rather funny. That's no excuse. Apologies are unnecessary as well.

Maybe its high time you wrote an editorial about the unequivocal amazing negotiations Baron's dad has accomplished in order to bring about lasting peace to the entire world. It didn't surprise me, his ex-wives or anyone else when they see what wonderful children he has raised.

When I was pregnant with my youngest son, Elias, I was told at 16 weeks that if I continued my pregnancy, I was risking my own death and leaving my sons and husband without me. “If it comes down to it,” my care team asked, “Do you want us to save you or your unborn child?…

Good health is a requirement for all of us. When someone is sick, they can’t work, learn or be a fully engaged in the community.

What is that old saying? Turnabout is fair play? I also like that saying about karma, and what you sow that also shall you reap. Before this is over, Republicans will wish Hillary was elected so they could have done to her what they are about to go through.

They are locked into an untenable…

“My body My choice” is the rally cry for pro-abortion supporters. However, it is not a woman’s body that will be killed during an abortion, it is the small defenseless babies’ who I would bet wished they had the right to demand “my body, my choice.”
