Look at all the pictures of the Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, drug cartel and Bangladesh people (Getty images) and you will see what open borders looks like. The citizens in border states are concerned with the infiltration of the drug cartel and ISIS.
Thank you. I ran into some human kindness at Aldi's the other day. I didn't have many items, and the woman in front of me offered to pay. I was flabbergasted and didn't know what to say. That had never happened to me before. So whoever you are, much appreciated. Doug Fitch Baxter
"Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down (or be willing to) one's life for his friend." John 15:13. "For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?" Matt. 16:26a. I want a recount of fall! I don't think we got enough fall days before winter settled in. We got cheated! I'm writing this on Veteran's Day, so first off, I want to sincerely thank each and every veteran who ever served our country, and also the families left behind and their sacrifices and wish a blessing by God to both. Amen! Thank you!
This country takes in 1 million immigrants legally every year. Many more come in illegally. There are billions of people in the world living in poverty that want to migrate to the USA seeking a better life. It is very noble to say we should be helping all these people, when in reality there is no way for us to accommodate that many new immigrants. Our social infrastructure is pushed to the limit at the current levels. The answer, as it has always been, is the help these people where they currently live. Glen Boehmer Brainerd
I did smile some when I read that Minnesota is turning red because Stauber won. Obviously I beg to differ along with Walz and many others who did win also. The problem with mining and oil is in some cases the companies do not clean up their messes, it is often cheaper for them to pay a fine rather than replace what was raped from the environment. Oil companies are notorious for this. The almighty dollar is their priority which has put our lands and water at risk on a daily basis.
The Brainerd Dispatch of Friday Nov. 9, 2018, buried the awful story of another mass murder in California on Page A7! The front page had a large picture of icicles forming on reeds (oh my) along with articles that were interesting but front page worthy? Hardly, not compared to another mass murder where our U.S. Congress and President Trump do nothing—other than offer thoughts and prayers. How sad that the Dispatch has become so accustomed to mass murder that the horrible murder of 11 innocent people is buried on Page A7.
I would like to thank the more than 1,400 Crosslake residents who came out to vote last Tuesday. One of the most important freedoms we have as citizens of this great country is the right to vote. I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to the voters of Crosslake for electing me as your mayor. I am honored and humbled that you have placed your trust in me. This is a responsibility I do not take lightly.
I recently attended a sold-out event at Tornstrom Auditorium. It was a rainy, misty night. I was reminded that there is basically only street parking around Tornstrom. People had to go a great distance to get to the venue. They also had to cross streets as cars were going by — some not stopping for people in crosswalks.
I'm extremely grateful for this incredible opportunity to serve Crow Wing County as your next< Sheriff. My family and I enjoyed meeting so many wonderful people during the campaign. Whether it was at a parade, door knocking, the fair, or at community events—the outpouring of support has truly been amazing. I am committed to provide exceptional service to our residents and visitors.
Abraham Lincoln said, "A house divided against itself cannot stand." Trump threatened to "take a war like posture" and shut down government if House Democrats performed their Constitutionally sworn duties. Republicans investigated Hillary Clinton for 4 years and were never threatened by either Obama or Clinton. Hillary was grilled for 11 hours straight by a hostile and partisan Republican majority who did their best to impugn her integrity and charge her with crimes or dereliction.
