Clearing the air about the Tom Brady-Bruce Arians relationship | Dec. 5

Stop stifling Brady’s natural talents

Here’s a question for the Tampa Bay Bucs head coach and offensive coordinator: Why would you sign the best, most cerebral quarterback in NFL history, a quarterback that for years dissected team after team with a brilliant take what they give approach and try to turn him into the mad bomber? Please let Tom Brady do what he does best before the season is a complete lost.

2020 elections

Time to call out the president

When President Donald Trump is calling governors to pressure them to overturn the will of the people, and those governors remain silent, it shows they lack principles and courage. It also shows they lack leadership.

Every person writing them or calling them telling them to support the president’s futile, and at this point ridiculous, attempts to reverse the election is using delusion and lies. The governors must know that. And yet, they remain silent. Our own governor parrots the same baseless lies and calls for GOP state governments to overturn the will of their people.

GOP governors must stand up for what is right. They look ridiculous to all but the cult members.

Florida’s GOP leaders lack the courage to do the right thing | Column, Dec. 6

Required reading for Congress

The last paragraph of Mac Stipanovich’s column on voter fraud should be e-mailed to every Republican in Congress. It is the most concise and truthful evaluation of this ongoing farce related to the past election. It is time for these people to try and return common sense and decency to our government.

Easy COVID math

This is in reference to the Dec. 6 letter which states: “There is a reason why Florida has the third highest number of coronavirus cases in the nation.” One reason is Florida is the third most populated state, so it would seem probable we would be third in any measure of infections.

Trump administration must accept DACA applications from immigrants, judge rules | Dec. 4

DACA, the right way

Perhaps Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) should be approached as follows: Give each person a Social Security card and make them pay federal, state and city income taxes, according to where they live. At age 18, or older if it applies, they serve two years in our military service. Then, using veterans benefits, they attend and graduate from a four-year college. They are then offered legal resident status and can, if desired, apply for U.S. citizenship. If they do not comply with these requirements, they are no longer eligible to remain in the country under DACA. They must then leave the country and apply for legal entry.
