Editor: In Mr. Thomas’ letter regarding the display of political flags, he is “perplexed” and several times asks “why?” Well, Mr. Thomas, it is called freedom of speech! It is the First Amendment to the Constitution! I am proud to fly my American-made flags. They are a symbol of the freedom that we have to enjoy in this great country. All of our veterans and current military personnel have fought to protect our right to free speech and we cannot thank them enough!

If you wish to purchase a “vintage Hillary” flag to display, I suggest purchasing a quality one made in America. Some of my Democrat friends bought the cheap ones made in China and Taiwan and found out that the colors all bled together when they got wet during all the crying after the 2016 election!

Sorry, it was Mr. Chamberlains article.

I like the comments to Mr. Thomas article. Both seemed to be without malice. I thank HwyRovr for his comment(s) as it was both interesting and educational. It begs more from the reader.


The Twitter hashtag #ILeftTheGOP has been inundated with former Republican voters explaining why they left the party, with a lot of folks pointing to Donald Trump. Now, we could easily point to Ronald Reagan as a solid reason to have abandoned the Republican Party years ago, but we’re not going to judge people if they’re just now waking up from the fog. Besides, it’s a healthy topic to discuss during these polarized times, especially while the world is witnessing a blatant cover-up by Senate Republiscums.

Columnist Cheri Jacobus launched the hashtag, asking others to share with the Twitterverse why they “cut the cord” and thousands of people promptly used the hashtag.

Anti-American Conservative Fanatics tried to launch a #WalkAway movement in 2018 to claim that Democrats are fleeing the party but it was revealed to be an astroturfed campaign driven by pro-Trump Twitter users and amplified by automated and Russian-linked accounts. Trump supporters are not moderates. Republicans have become the party for extremists. Just walk away, conservatives.


It appears Republicans are having a difficult time walking away from the Golden Calf they've made. It's sad and dangerous!


Gary, thank you for telling it like the majority of LHC residents see things. On a side note: Did you know that Democrats are as rare as Monarch butterflies in this town? Experts say they've been changing political affiliation as fast as chameleons change color.


Actually we are not rare at all! We just aren't rude and obnoxious and call people names! Oh and we tell the truth! Try it.
