Community View | ‘We the People’ need to take the blame

This is in response to the Community View column published Nov. 7, “Everything Wrong in the U.S. is the Fault of the Democrats.” The writer places the blame on today’s turmoil on the Democrats, but it is truly on the shoulders of “We the People.” We are the ones electing our representatives in our government and expect them to govern responsibly.

Column | What have you done for us lately?

I don’t think the average American military veteran has the time or the temperament to spend 51 weeks a year asking such a question, but a reasonable person could hardly blame him if he did.

Community View | ‘No’ on 413: Let’s stop talking and do something

Doug Angle, of Angle Homes, Inc., has run an open letter stating I have attacked him personally. I have not attacked Doug personally, and if he took it that way, I’m sorry.

Community View | Keep Kingman moving in the right direction

There have recently been a lot of negative comments on The Daily Miner Opinion page about Sunbelt, a Las Vegas developer who has come to Kingman with “evil intentions” to invest in Kingman and possibly make a profit from his investments. Just to set the record straight, how about some facts?

Community View | Vote ‘yes’ on 412, ‘no’ on 413

I have lived in Kingman for almost 45 years and continue to enjoy the small town feel it has and appreciate its limited growth. However, our town is growing rapidly, and we need to provide support for the increased growth in population, business, and tourism.

Column | When we broaden the definition of incitement, freedom suffers

Over the past week, we’ve heard the media pitching one particular narrative nonstop: the story that President Donald Trump’s rhetoric has resulted in increased violence. We heard it in the aftermath of a spate of attempted bombing attacks against Democratic targets by a Floridian nut job, and we heard it in the aftermath of a shooting attack on a Pittsburgh synagogue by an outspokenly anti-Trump white supremacist.
