Actions, not hot air

In answer to Jesse Dizard's letter (Aug. 4, 2004 Empire), I am personally tired of people criticizing George Bush for deceiving the people when George...
Republican rage evident

...Republican true believers are working very hard to conceal in these final days before the election. Thank you for showing us all exactly what your more inhibited fellow ideologues are too ashamed to say in broad daylight. Jesse Dizard Juneau
Kerry a man of principle

...courage. He has experience and strength, morality and principle. Kerry is a strong leader who can steer our country back on course through these difficult times. John Kerry will put our priorities back where they belong. Jesse Dizard Juneau
Democracy means conflict

...harmony. Democracy is simply another word for conflict. It is to be hoped that those involved in the conflicts democracy requires can act with grace and decorum toward one another without resort to violence or profanity. Jesse Dizard Juneau
Disputing claims about homosexuality

...value and merits of such activities - especially in the name of a religion - when our species is notorious for committing acts of brutality, murder and genocide all for the "glory" of God. Which creatures are shameless? Jesse Dizard Juneau
Environmentalists' power and wealth is overestimated

...overestimates. Rather, they should be worried by dishonest politicians, the ignorant greed of corporate boards of directors, and by venture capitalists who can afford to live far away from their destructive investments. Jesse Dizard Juneau
Residents should ask questions about road

...concept: Improving a system that already works for Alaska, or buying something that will permanently damage our landscape, require expensive upkeep, and even under the best of circumstances only work for part of the year? Jesse Dizard Juneau
No to road; how about light rail?

...roll right on to ferries - why can't we? A rail link from the Capitol to the airport, and to Anchorage via the ferry system would be civilized and wise; it is an idea worthy of the foresight that made Alaska American. Jesse Dizard Juneau
No right to dictate others' behavior

...without regard for how they express their sexuality, and that we as a community ought to honor commitments that lovers make, thus contributing to a healthy and diverse society of equals. Would that not be redemptive? Jesse Dizard Juneau
Fact is, we need government and need to pay for it

...Senator Bunde for representing our interests. The Permanent Fund ought to remain as it is: Compensation for what Alaskans have collectively sacrificed for American energy needs, not a piggy bank for cowardly politicians. Jesse Dizard Juneau
