Letter: Warped mind

Not sure what Patrick Hunter was smoking when he fantasized the story in his July 26 letter. Perhaps he dreamed the scenario of a news story that his warped liberal mind would like to read. However, he should get his facts straight: The Dallas cop killer was ex-Army Reserve, the Baton Rouge murderer was ex-Marine.

The thing he failed to mention is they were both black and both expressed a desire to kill cops, preferably white cops, not because of their military background but because they felt that might make amends for the imagined mistreatment of their race, but that is a discussion for another time. And I would be willing to bet that if he researched their political affiliation he would find they were Democrats.

Back to Mr. Hunter, he seems to share his opinion of the military with such Democratic miscreants as Nancy Pelosi and ex-DHS chief Janet Napolitano. Pelosi, whom I call peloser, thinks all veterans are mentally damaged and Napolitano, whom I call incompatano, thinks we are right-wing extremists (she might be right).

Unfortunately for Mr. Hunter, I was allowed to come home about 49 years ago, much to his chagrin and that of the rest of the Aspen hippies. I must embody everything Mr. Hunter loves to hate in this country: ex-Marine, Vietnam vet, NRA member and gun owner. I frankly don’t know how he sleeps at night just knowing that I live in such close proximity.
