Letter to the editor: Young people trump Trump

Letter-writer Maury Fey ( “Saccone vs. Lamb” ) notes that Rick Saccone was in the Air Force, for which I thank him for his service, and that Conor Lamb spent a short time in the Marine Corps. What’s his point?

How much time did Saccone’s hero, President Trump, spend in the service? Not a second, thanks to five deferments and bad feet. His feet don’t seem to hurt when he plays golf all the time, costing taxpayers thousands of dollars.

Saccone and Fey should forget about Saccone speaking Korean. Maybe he should learn to speak Russian, since our president can’t praise Vladimir Putin enough, a man whom most of the world knows is a thug. Heaven only knows how many people he has had murdered or made disappear.

If I could, I would put those young people who survived the Parkland shooting in Congress right now. They make more sense and have more guts than our so-called leaders. Listen to them speak, then listen to Trump speak. The young people win by a mile.

I’ve seen professional athletes stay too long in their sport, and it was sad to see, but it didn’t affect me and the rest of America. But when a politician stays too long, people’s lives can be affected.

Good luck, young people, from an old man who thinks young.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
