Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor,

Hey, I finally figured it out: John Kerry, the way far-left, ultraliberal candidate for the Democratic Party, is actually a ’60s remake of Jane “Hanoi” Fonda … in drag. Would you vote for old “Hanoi” Jane if she were running for president in the upcoming election? I don’t think so …

According to Newt Gingrich, interviewed on Sean Hannity’s show after the Republican National Convention, Kerry met with North Vietnamese leaders in Paris when our troops were still in combat at the time. He had no authorization from the U.S. government.

Dear Editor,

I read Time magazine’s article about living to 100 years old. How pessimistic! In other cultures, people live to be120, 130 or older.

And they’re in great health throughout those years, feeling vibrant. They are not being hooked to machines and pumped with pills to keep them alive past their century mark.

It’s sad to see so many Americans living in poor health. So many folks are getting diseases that are completely preventable. So many people feel powerless over their health.

I want to assure every person who is not feeling fantastic about their bodies: There are many options. Health is a lifelong journey. We should all be feeling fantastic every day, for well over a century. It is simple to be in great health. But in order to discover your own great health, you must acknowledge that your body is amazing and has the power to heal itself, given a few tools.

Please join me on Monday, Sept. 13, in Basalt, for a free seminar to learn more about some of these simple skills. “Secrets of our Healthcare System: Dying to Know More about Disease Prevention and Weight Control,” will be offered in the River View Plaza, on the corner of Elk Run Drive and Two Rivers Road, from 6-7:15 p.m. To reserve your free spot, please contact me at 948-0179.

Dear Editor,

Anyone still in doubt re: whether to get rid of the blight that is in the White House and on this nation need look no further than the tone of the letter by Mr. Moolick on Sept. 2 where he accuses Mr. Sundin of “terroristic” something or other.

This is the sort of claptrap that precedes neighbors denouncing one another with accusations wrapped in buzzwords, i.e.: “suspected terroristic” whatever. And, instead of a train ride to the “camps” it will be a boat ride to Guantanamo or Abu Ghraib. After all, anyone who dares speak facts against our glorious leader must be a terrorist. Did you sign your loyalty oath yet? “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary,” H.L. Mencken said.

And no, I am not overlooking 9-11, I refuse to accept it as a political tool to be used by this poisonous group and their followers.
