The unsigned letter from the Los Alamos GOP and Dr. Reilly's letter
about Hillary Clinton are not up to the standards I expect in this
community. Just a few comments.
Under the U.S. Supreme Court case Communications Workers of America v. Beck (1988) non-union members in a union shop do not have to pay for
union political activity but only that part of the dues that go to
representation with the employer. Union members vote on what political
activity their union will become involved with through their own
representatives such as union board members. I was once a union board
The Second Amendment will not fall if open carry is not allowed. In the
landmark Heller vs. D.C. et al decision, the Court stated "...Like most
rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right
to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for
whatever purpose..."; the court let stand many state laws regulating
the personal possession of arms.
So we don't need the disastrous candidate Donald Trump to protect us
from encroachments on the Second Amendment or to keep union workers from
being fleeced by union leadership.
As far as Hillary Clinton and Servergate, FBI Director Comey's crystal
clear statements indicated Clinton's mishandling of classified material.
Comey's statement was reviewed in these words by the New York Times:
"...Of 30,000 emails Mrs. Clinton handed over to the State Department,
110 contained information that was classified at the time she sent or
received them. Of those, Mr. Comey said, “a very small number” bore
markings that identified them as classified. This finding is at odds
with Mrs. Clinton’s repeated assertions that none of the emails were
classified at the time she sent or received them. The F.B.I. did not
disclose the topics of the classified emails..."
In an election where most of us will be holding our nose as we vote for
president, the least we can do is clearly understand the issues. Both
parties need to do better.
