Whose fault is it?
In response to Ramona Templin (July 3), we have our faults, but to equate my faults or her faults with Trump’s does not compute, nor does it excuse Trump’s abhorrent behavior.
I do not have the fault of ignoring the coming plague, calling it a hoax while it kills 150,000 Americans and counting; I wear a mask. I have not ignored the fact that Russia paid bounties to kill our soldiers, I have not skimmed millions of dollars from a charitable foundation to buy a picture of myself or create a scam university as a fault. I do not lie every time I open my mouth as one of my defects, and I have not filed bankruptcy six times and cheated the workers I owed.
My faults do not include the seven deadly sins. I would not try to exclude health care in the middle of a plague. Trump’s way to deal with the buck that stops at his desk is to figure a way to put it in his wallet.
Some faults outweigh others, and Trump’s faults break the scale, and ours do not come close to this White House blunder machine and disaster architect.
Recall Gov. Kate Brown
Democrats have total control over the three branches of government in Oregon: The governorship (Kate Brown), the House and the Senate with its super majority. They have gone power crazy implementing laws and raising taxes that harm the average Oregonian.
Kate Brown leads the onslaught of income and real estate taxes, special fees and onerous restrictions causing businesses to close and disastrous unemployment. During her reign Oregon ranked 31st for its fiscal health. Mismanaged pension funds led to $26 billion underfunding. Forbes reported that Kate is using taxpayers’ money to fund personal expenses.
Brown has also failed to keep her people safe. Protection is the government’s first duty. Riots, an increase in homicides, suicides, thefts, shootings, opioid addictions, homelessness and filthy parks do not make me feel safe.
Kate and her cronies have lost their moral compass engaging in a multitude of scandals and listening more to their buddies in California and Washington than their own constituents. Remember the disgrace over the effort to squash transparency at the Office of Public Records, and her unethical solicitation of millions in cash from state contractors. Enough!
Help save Oregon. Please sign the recall petition before the end of August.
