Wrong target, man

As a Republican who is so left wing that I’m practically a Democrat, I find this column (“Mean Girls running GOP”) ridiculous and offensive. It is sexist, among other things. I have been welcomed into the Eagle County GOP with welcome arms, despite the fact that I support abortion, am against global warming, and also very much in opposition to the war in Iraq. Ex-Dem, Neo-Republican, Not-Mean GOP Girl

Someone gets it

I stopped by the Vail Valley Medical Center today. I was pleased to see that the pharmacy gets it. Yes, they are the Eagle Valley Pharmacy, smack in the middle of Vail. T. Cochrane, Eagle Valley Chamber

What about legal immigrants?

How about the millions of people who want to enter this country legally and have been trying for years to find a way to get here without breaking the law? Will they have a path to legal status and citizenship? Do they have to break the law first as an illegal and then get the deal that these illegals want? Tom Clancy

Hogwash, you say?

Greg, do you understand the mortgage-paying difference between shelling out $100,000 for land and $500,000? How about paying eight staff members $15 per hour as opposed to $7? Economics 101, man.

It’s an investment

Regardless of a child’s ethnicity, religion, or race, we as responsible adults should not squander this opportunity to invest in our future, by investing in the early brain/educational development of our children. Yes, “our” children.

Mr. Hassan makes many valid points, but certainly the fact that we are all on the same team, all Americans, should resonate with all reasonable readers. These children are our fellow citizens. They don’t have a voice.

If you want to vent your anger about illegal aliens and immigration do it in a more appropriate forum. Or better yet, write your elected official. The Senate is taking up immigration reform ” vent away! dcnoble
