Confederate statues never should've been allowed

CORRECTION APTOPIX Confedrate Statues New Orleans-4

To attempt to equate the bomb damage in London left by the Nazis during the Second World War and the Civil War statues honoring a failed attempt to overthrow the government of the United States of America is insanity (”America shouldn't be in the business of taking down statues,” D....

Celebrate Constitution Week

MH 062516 Air Show 29-11

Ten years after signing the Declaration of Independence, our Founding Fathers created the Constitution of the United States, which historians have called the greatest single document written by man. The framers of the Constitution combined the best political ideas of the past with an improved...

Trump was wrong to rescind DACA

Immigration California DACA

Evidently, President Trump’s agenda is to eliminate everything that President Obama did. Therefore, it was no surprise to many people when Trump announced he was rescinding DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) that protects young immigrants who were brought here illegally by their...

Questioning a monument doesn't deny the history that led to it

Confederate Monument Protest Divided Virginia-1

Ogden Standard Examiner contributor D. Louise Brown (“America Shouldn’t Be in the Business of Taking Down Statues,” Aug. 31) compares monuments honoring those who led the fight to uphold slavery with preserved sections of Parliament that were bombed and blackened during prolonged...

America shouldn't be in the business of preserving Confederate statues

Confederate Statues New Orleans-1 Davis

With the recent violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, I have had cause to ponder the way bigots act today versus the clarity we had back in the 60's. Liberals use the term "dog whistle," which refers not to a whistle only dogs can hear but rather to code racists use when they try to express...

U.S. should take down statues if they glorify a dark part of history

AP Explains Robert E Lee

I could not agree less with D. Louise Brown (”America shouldn't be in the business of taking down statues,” Aug. 31). Would she care to see a statue in downtown Salt Lake City of Missouri Gov. Lilburn Boggs, the author of the extermination order against the Missouri Mormons? He is a...

There may be a plan behind Trump's reckless behavior

Democrats Culture War Trump

Donald Trump is no Adolf Hitler, at least not yet. But I would be alarmed by any American president who would do what he is doing. He attacked our judicial branch for refusing to approve his unconstitutional immigration ban and, as a further insult to our judiciary, he pardoned the racist forme...

Columnist D. Louise Brown is wrong about Confederate statues

Confederate Monuments Baltimore-6

All right, let's see if I've got this straight. Statues of leaders in some parts of the United States, who fought for the dissolution of this country and for slavery, represent the same values as the scorched bricks and bullet-pocked walls preserved in a country attacked by a menace threatening to...

Social Security isn't the government's money — it's our money

BZ 082417 Bishop Town Hall 06

I am writing in response to David Spackman’s letter of Sept. 5, “Medicare, Social Security promote laziness and dependency.” First, I would like to know his age. He said, “This country was founded on limited government to protect basic rights, relying on individualist...

England didn't erect statues of Hitler, Hess or Goebbels

Confederate Monuments Photo Gallery-4

I share some of the thoughts put forward by D. Louise Brown, as published in the Standard-Examiner on Thursday, Aug. 31 (“America shouldn’t be in the business of taking down statues”). Some I do not share. I too believe that statuary is a powerful lesson in history, positive and...
