Editor: In response to a letter from Bill Thomas published Feb. 13, I’d say let’s not play fast and loose with the facts, Bill. You start out good but descend into the partisanship you oppose. You claim a couple of alleged “fibs” in the President’s State of the Union Address such as:

1. The issue of pre-existing medical conditions which you claim the President will take away because the administration is in court versus Obamacare. In fact, I have heard him say his plan is to protect pre existing conditions in whatever health care plan is proposed to replace Obamacare. We will see. But don’t call that a fib. To oppose Obamacare in principle is not necessarily opposing a part of it.

2. You state that President Obama added more jobs on average in his last three years than Trump has done during his administration while Trump is claiming his average is the highest of any administration. Note the word “administration”. For Obama that would mean the average over his eight years. Not just the last three years.

Believe me, President Obama was superb in his handling of the financial debacle he inherited from President Bush in 2008. He deserves all the credit in the world for bringing back our economy slow and easy despite much criticism from those who would have pushed ahead fast and furious toward the next recession (economics 101). President Trump has added to the very positive economic performance so far in his tenure.

As a side note to the “Never Trumpers,” how is it that someone can be indicted/impeached on false facts, judged to be innocent but is still considered guilty in the eyes of 50 percent of the population? Is it “innocent until proven guilty” or “guilty no matter what?” This whole impeachment mess since Trump became President is totally ridiculous. Having been a Democrat since John Kennedy (including being the local leader for Gov. Howard Dean in 2004) I have since determined that the party has gone nuts since President Trump was elected. Let’s see what comes down the pike after we find just how all this impeachment business started in 2016.

Hey phil, why did trump and all the republicans say Bill Clinton was impeached as a way of attacking Hillary? At least he had the balls to show up and testify.

There is nothing this bunch will not lie about – Brad Parscale, the campaign manager for the impeached, scum posted a tweet of Air Force One behind a huge crowd at the Daytona 500 with the caption, “″@realDonaldTrump won the #Daytona500 before the race even started.” However, as with everything associated with the impeached low-life it was a lie.

In fact the picture, shot by photographer Jonathan Ferrey in 2004, shows Air Force One taking off from the Daytona Beach International Airport, which is adjacent to the speedway. The aircraft actually carried former President George W. Bush.

I agree and appreciate your input. I would, however, like for you to point out where I insulted Phil? And I hope you have noticed there are people I no longer respond to here because, basically, they are idiots. The two I stay on top of, JV and VA, I respond to only because they share their love for me day in and day out with their concern about my well-being, my "famous" books, and even the size of my vehicle. Basically I feel I am polite to them because I always thank them for their concern and show my humble appreciation for their obsession with me.

mr kerry

hey HwyRovr. I want you to give your opinion on any issue and any person anytime. But it gets to a time that what you say is no longer making a difference to the people on this comment site. I know there are others who continually punch your buttons and you punch back, but there some who would appreciate a more helpful dialogue. Maybe some could become more educated and/or some minds could be changed. That piece by Phil for instance was will written and seemed to be an opinion he believed. Agree or not a civil reply should be enough. Come on guys, let make this a place to exchange ideas, not insults.

VA172

Mr kerry. As you have noticed RNN is not capable of anything close to a civil conversation. He does not understand it's ok to have opinions different than his own.

HwyRovr

HI! Good to see your obsession for me still makes you show up here. Once again, who or what is this "RNN" thing you keep bringing up? But never forget I am always humbled by your love and adoration.

Mr. Kerry, welcome to TNH’s comments! You say you would like to see civility and a “more helpful dialogue” good for you, I believe we should all aspire to that goal. However, Brother you’re looking in the wrong place for that! On one of my first excursion into this comment area with an opinion I was blasted with three paragraphs stating I was a clueless, lightweight, fool and conservative lying idiot from none other then “Hwy rovR**” I ask you is that a “more helpful dialogue” or civility? I think not. I agree with you that I and a couple of others enjoy needling rovR**, it’s so easy to do! But Mr. Kerry if you intend to add to these discussions, you will need to proof read your comments carefully or you will be blasted by rovR** with this ( a direct quote ) “There is nothing funny about misspelling a word. It is a grievous mistake and one I take very seriously. Finding humor in such a situation demonstrates why DOT's are always incensed when their ignorance is pointed out because they do not value accuracy in communication”. . “Rovr 09/03/2019”

“Thank you for pointing out my error. Effective communication relies on both proper spelling and pronunciation of words and I regret the error.” Rovr 09/04/2019

“Because the only way the ignorant can ever learn is by being corrected. Do not consider it as a criticism, but a learning experience. BTW, the end of a question should have a “?”. Rovr 09/05/2019. So welcome aboard Mr. Kerry! [thumbup][beam] Deaton

When a Democrat is elected president in November, that will mean in 2021 Republiscum supporters of the impeached low-life scum will finally have access to the mental health-care they need so badly.

Lying, low-life, scum candidate in 2016, “I will eliminate the federal debt in eight years!”

Lying, low-life, IMPEACHED scum today – Increased the debt by three (3) TRILLION dollars.

HwyRovr

When a Democrat is elected president in November, next year Republiscum supporters of the impeached low-life scum will finally have access to the mental health-care they so desperately need.

Apparently rovR **’s dementia is worsening, he hasn’t figured out what year it is! He seems to “desperately need” that “mental health-care” he speaks of? Also by the look of his “new” avatar, his caregiver should take over the application of his makeup and lip gloss. On the bright side “Prestige” is only a short distance from the Black Bear Diner! C’ya around rovR **. [thumbup][tongue] Deaton

Facts from Democrats have been proven to be nothing more than lies. I rest my case.

HwyRovr

Mentioning facts - Impeached President Low Life Scum’s ongoing trade wars are expected to cost the average American family $1,277 this year, according to a study by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. The figure is based on the negative impact of tariffs on economic growth, as well as higher prices to consumers as American manufacturers and retailers are forced to pay tariffs on imports.

Scummy has boasted trade wars are “easy to win,” and has repeatedly falsely insisted that China is paying tariffs directly into the U.S. Treasury. In fact, American companies importing goods or supplies pay tariffs enacted by Trump, and typically pass on those costs to consumers. In addition, U.S. industries are hurt by retaliatory tariffs enacted by other nations when American companies try to sell their products abroad.

deaton

Typical example of rovR**’s “Stack-O-Lies”! Seems his reading comprehension skills are eroding with the suspected onset of dementia? So sad. His only recourse has been resorting to the tried and true “Copy & Paste” method of filling space in his pointless comments. [thumbup][beam] Deaton
