Readers' Vent: June 15, 2019

The push for charter schools and the savings accounts can be interpreted as an attempt to fund religious schools. Since the legislation provides for noninterference with curriculum it should also be possible to teach the true history of the Middle East, how the Bible was composed, and the Greek and Roman influence on the Jewish and Christian religions, etc.

The idea that a sovereign nation would offer damaging information to an American candidate running for office without expecting something in return is way worse than naive. Any elected official soliciting help in their campaign from foreign nations should be investigated and removed from office.

With the surge in measles cases in this country, I’d like to know what the policy is with illegal immigrants. I’m sure they haven’t had any of our required immunizations, so to protect our citizens, are they vaccinating them as soon as they cross the border?

Crucial question for Speaker Hanshaw. Does he want to remain majority speaker or side with Carmichael, who is sinking his party?

It’s only fair that if students need a pot test to get free tuition then the Senate and House members get tested before they pass bills and pay for the tests, too.

Bernie Sanders’ speeches are cut short for three reasons. They don’t make sense. He contradicts things he’s said in the past. And no red-blooded American wants socialism.

$9 million OK’d by Kanawha BOE for installing turf at seven high schools. The same BOE that can’t keep the heat and AC operating in our schools. What is wrong with elected officials responsible for spending our tax dollars?

Thursday’s editorial makes it clear — Republicans can’t or won’t govern when they are in power. If the situation in Washington didn’t prove it, the unholy mess in Charleston does. Once in office they want only to inflict their religious hypocrisy on others, profit for themselves and their cronies, and punish those like the teachers that dare call them for what they are.
