In response to Ray Holbrook’s guest column ("Vote Cruz to stop the socialist takeover of America" The Daily News, Sept. 22), I have two bipartisan quotes for him. The first is from a Republican, Ronald Reagan: “There you go again!” The second from a Democrat, Beto O’Rourke, from the Sept. 21…

Is lying the new political norm? Of course not. Politicians and their political operatives, along with their core supporters, have been involved with the practice of politically lying and deceiving voters by making false claims that they know not to be true, etc., since I can remember.

As "The Big Bang Theory" CBS juggernaut rolls into a record 12th season on Monday, most of the gang exploring mysteries of the universe have gone vegan, opting for plant-based eating. Leading actress Kaley Cuoco (Penny) also campaigns against Canadian slaughter of baby seals. Mayim Bialik (A…

John R. Cobarruvias’ comments about detectors will not curing gun violence are correct; however, busting Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick’s chops over the offer to give 10 of them to Santa Fe schools is not warranted (Metal detectors don't add up to less gun violence," The Daily News, Sept. 19).

In 1960, Nikita Khrushchev of the USSR pounded his shoe on the table at the United Nations and said, “We will take over America without firing a shot.” We all laughed. This was during the Cold War era, and we knew he was just trying to look strong for his people.

I think it's time to think blue. How can we expect Ted Cruz to stick up for Texas when he cannot stick up for himself? He was once brutally insulted by Donald Trump, who called him "Lyin' Ted" and added further indignity to his family. Lyin' Ted's reaction to this abuse — become close pals w…

In a letter by Don Treshman ("Beto O'Rourke is deceptive, support Ted Cruz," The Daily News, Sept. 12) he goes back to the current playbook of Trump Republicans. He attacked Beto O'Rouke for his name that his family gave him as a child.

The 3-foot rule is important, but for much more than enforcement ("Citing enforcement, council defers bike safety vote," The Daily News, Sept. 14). It's about awareness and showing that Galveston is a bicycle-friendly city. The ordinance, along with signage, will make drivers aware and, hope…

In response to the letter by Don Treshman ("Beto O'Rourke is deceptive, support Ted Cruz," The Daily News, Sept. 12): Not only is the writer offensive to Congressman O’Rourke and the work he does for his constituents, but he is also offensive to his fellow Texans for making such ridiculous c…

As a member of the Friends of Downtown Friendswood Association, when I first heard about the carousel for Stevenson Park, I envisioned a beautiful Saturday with a grandchild walking hand-in-hand through its quiet, green trails, then going over and riding the carousel.

President Trump has accused the mainstream media of providing fake news, and being an enemy of the people. I agree with him. Why, because of the hypocrisy and dishonesty exhibited by the mainstream media on a daily basis.

I for one am getting tired of the half- to full-page critics of this administration with The Associate Press as the only news source. The “spin” is always against any positive thing this president does right.

I recently rode down the length of the Texas City Dike for the first time in many years and was pleasantly surprised by the improvements — particularly the efforts to keep the area clean by making trash cans available every several feet. Yet, in spite of this, people can’t be bothered to dis…

On the night of Sept. 4, I was watching the 10 p.m. news and they were showing a segment live about Tropical Storm Gordon when I saw the most stupid thing. A news reporter was in full rain gear with 30 to 40 mph winds with rain giving his report in the rain.

Progressives raise taxes to pay for more welfare. After a tax increase reduces revenues by killing jobs, creating more need for welfare, they raise taxes again. An endless treadmill of more welfare and higher taxes.

I’ve read that Beto O’Rourke voted against Harvey relief. It concerned me because it doesn’t jive with what I know about him. Could this be a chink in the armor of a man I admire?

I have seen the uptick in sign placement in Galveston advocating Beto O'Rourke for the senate seat held by Ted Cruz in the upcoming elections. I have no issues with his missteps in his youth, or how he was able to have his transgressions adjudicated. His personal life is of no consequence to me.

It seems that Robert Hart's view ("The Civil War was all about greed, not slavery," The Daily News, Aug. 29) to incorporate the economy as a component in the "war against slavery" is a multidimensional approach, but still may not be incorporating all of the conditions of the times.
