Letter: Response to Cleveland letter in July 13 paper

To the editor:

Statements that were brought forth should be addressed with facts.

If most of the people that oppose his point of view are under-educated and ill-informed, why waste all those words?

ISIS is winning? Not according to the president.

Jews and African-Americans hated? Not according to my Jewish and African friends. Does Mr. Cleveland know any?

Women second-class? Talk to my wife and ask that question.

People like Mr. Cleveland simply like to spout words without offering proof. He would be much more effective to his cause by taking one subject, stating it and proving his position instead of rambling on foolishly.

Two final thoughts:

A. I think he found and used the Clinton Handbook.

B. Really, finally, hogwash.

Oops, my Shakespeare thought for the day: “This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”
