Practice What You Preach 

Pin It

There is serious debate in Washington and other countries about whether burning fossil fuels affects meteorological events. First, let me state that I stand behind those who fight for freedom; freedom of speech is how we solve our problems.

We know that Judicial Watch, a public- interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the Department of Defense concerning the use of military jets by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. As House Speaker, Pelosi reportedly attempted to use an abundance of jets to fly a large number of people around.

I support those who practice what they preach. Ed Begley Jr. bought his first electric car back in the 1970s. He travels by bicycle or mass transit. The same cannot be said about Pelosi.

Rep. Pelosi, put up or shut up.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
