‘No one is perfect’

July 07, 2020

To the Editor:

To the American public,

Appointed/elected officials at all levels are spineless idiots! You people are all toying/playing games with our country’s history. Princeton University — the Confederacy (yes, even the south’s battle flag). I don’t agree with slavery in any form — but — the Confederates were taught/told that having slaves was alright. Haven’t we all in our lifetimes had discriminating thoughts or actions? No one person or group are perfect. Remember what God said when Mary Magdalene was sentenced to be stoned to death. I quote the Bible: “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”

I served 21 years in the U.S. military and had good Guamanian/ Latino/Hispanic and Black friends. We got drunk together — suffered hangovers together, played sports together and worked together. I don’t care about someone’s skin color if they are good people.

The Black Lives Matter group are nothing but racial bigots. All over our planet their movement tries to let the masses believe that they are better than anyone else. Not so! Two self-stated men of God are in the same group. Yes. I mean Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

Wake up Americans — if you don’t like this country get the hell out.

My paternal grandfather was born in Wales. This does not make me Welsh American. I have Welsh heritage — but I am American.

The entire world can take the political correctness and put it where the sun doesn’t shine.

God bless the United States of America.
