I read Kevin Doby’s letter (Press & Dakotan, July 23) about someone leaving tire tracks in his yard. Don’t have a clue, but we all should buy Kevin coffee. He writes very reasonable letters that are much appreciated. Maybe CSI Yankton can figure this out by checking satellite footage which is even clear enough at times to read plate numbers. The perpetrator does not represent the people of our town.
As far as criticism of Donald Trump, who doesn’t have reason to dislike this man, even for conservative South Dakotans? Who can forget the government shutdown that accomplished nothing causing workers to miss paychecks? What has the trade war done for farm grain prices? Who can forget awful statements Trump made about Senator John McCain, even after he was dead? Real conservatives like Ronald Reagan, Barry Goldwater and John McCain are nothing like Trump and must be rolling in their graves. How can anyone with a moral compass have anything good to say about Trump’s womanizing and payoffs that are well documented? We all pay our taxes, and who can respect a man who brags about not paying taxes while sitting on a golden toilet in his penthouse? What about all his inner staff that have resigned due to illegal behavior? No other administration has been this bad. What about all the terrible things Trump says on Twitter — every day? Is this someone we want to be our president? I don’t care what color ball cap you wear, Donald Trump is causing problems, and he doesn’t seem to really know what he is doing.
We live in a free country and we have the right to speak up and be critical of our government. We needn’t be saying the same things and reading newspapers expressing the same exact viewpoints, because if that happened, we are being controlled. It is un-American to be intimidated for who we are or what we believe. Hooliganism is un-American and unpatriotic.
