Earl Pederson: If it looks like a duck ...
There's an old saying that if it looks like a duck, flies like a duck, swims like a duck, poops like a duck, it must a duck. Well, the same thing can be said about the Clinton Foundation. If it looks like pay to play, smells like pay to play, sounds like pay to play, it must be pay...

Letter: A liberal spin on gun statistics
In reading the Public Forum rant by John H. Burns, it makes one wonder which liberal organization he is getting his numbers from. If you look at the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting Program for 2014 (the latest), one would see that his numbers don't match. If you don't believe me, look...

Letter: Take responsibility, Obama
Regarding the recent murders committed by illegal aliens, in both cases these murderers had been deported numerous times, and in both cases ICE was not informed that they were in custody. Now Obama is blaming the Republicans for this problem. If you go back in history less than...

Letter: Move to North Korea
If Lee Paulson needs his life to be so heavily regulated maybe he should move to North Korea. In that country every aspect of your life is regulated. And if you don’t like their regulations, they have ways of dealing with people who don’t like their regulations. Earl Peders...

Letter: More anti-bully rules not needed
Mr. Larson, do we really need the Minnesota Legislature writing more rules and regulations? Do you really think that our local school boards are so inept that they can’t write their own policy concerning bullying? Minnesota and America would be much better off with more local...

Letter: Keep bully enforcement local
A response to Richard A. Larsen of Willmar (Public Forum, Feb. 7): Have you taken the time to actually read HF 826? I have. Yes, bullying is a problem and always will be, but I’m not condoning it. If you read the bill you would see that it creates another layer of government with...

Letter: Obama’s disastrous leadership
Well, well, well I see now that President Obama has gotten his wish and has shut down the government. He says he is willing to negotiate but then says he will only sign what he wants. And of course he is blaming those nasty evil Republicans. He’s blaming them because he can’t...
