Letter: We don’t need annual legislative session, we need term limits
Well, well, well, they’re at it again! The idea of annual sessions of the North Dkaota Legislature is once again surfacing its ugly head. Of course that liberal idea is cooked up by Democrats and RINOs (Republicans In Name Only). These people want more and bigger government. We...

Letter: Simons is a real person, not a politician
Have you noticed? We have entered a new era in politics! We have people running for political office that are not politicians. They are real people. Surprise! If our forefathers could come back and see what this country has become, they would be heartsick. But at the same time, they...

Letter: Simons would represent District 36 well in Legislature
Hip, hip horray! Hip, hip, horray! Is this an exciting and interesting election year so far or what? It would appear that those of us who are rabble rousers and politically incorrect are maybe starting to see some of our efforts pay off. More and more people see that those we elect...

Letter: North Dakotans should get angry, just not for the reasons John Oliver wants
Well, well, well! Looks like this Johnny Oliver comedian or whatever the heck he is caused quite a stir with his liberal rant about North Dakota’s oil industry, creating a utopia for North Dakota Democrats. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised to find out that the whole thing was staged...

Letter: Marriage will always be one man and one woman
June 26, 2015, will go down as one of the darkest days in American history. The day that the highest court in America made a mockery out of God’s institution of marriage. Really, that decision shouldn’t even be valid in the first place because the court’s vote wasn’t even...

Letter: Measure 1 protects the right to life, and that’s why I’m voting for it
Wow! I can’t believe all of the hype and hullabaloo I am seeing in print and hearing about Measure 1! Even Lloyd Omdahl, who is supposedly Christian, is talking out of both sides of his mouth and, as usual, making very little, if any, sense. They say that the language is very vague....

Letter: Vote no on Measure No. 1 in primary election
One initiated measure of utmost importance to be voted on in the June 10 primary election is Measure No. 1. This measure is a proposed constitutional amendment placed directly on the ballot by the 2013 North Dakota Legislature. This amendment pertains to the initiative and referral...

Letter: No free lunch for ND taxpayers
By now every property owner has received their property tax bill from their county treasurer. A lot of property owners saw their tax bills skyrocket. I know of one person who received a 40 percent increase in his property taxes, after the legislative buydown of school district mill...

Letter: DPS giving wrong impression with letter
Well! Well! Well! They want to give us the shaft and make us feel good while they are giving it to us. It makes one hopping mad. I'm referring to a letter sent out to all taxpayers in the Dickinson School District. The letter is very confusing. They are saying the actual mills will...

Letter: Status quo scared of Measure 2
Heh, heh, heh! What did I tell you? What did I tell you in my last letter to the editor? The largest confiscators of our property tax money are already starting to creep out of the woodwork and make themselves known. I'm referring to The Dickinson Press article: "Stark County budget...

Letter: Pleasing minorities not the solution
A famous person in history once said: "The best way for evil to triumph is for good men (and women) to sit back and do nothing." This accurately describes the whole state of our nation when it comes to tolerance of those who want do away with images of Christmas, Christianity, etc....

Letter: Let's keep a good thing going
Congratulations to the voters of North Dakota and the voters across the nation. You sent a message loud and clear that we need to take a different direction. Liberal politicians, 680 of them, lost their jobs on Nov. 2. We need to return to the principles set forth by our Founding...

Letter: Experience a benefit to board
After thoughtful consideration of Mr. Ralph Muecke's request to withdraw from the Dickinson City School Board race in the "Letters to the Editor" section of last week's Press, I have decided to forgo the advice and continue my candidacy. In my mind, "everyone's best interests" would...

Letter: Conflict of interest with 2 school board candidates
It's no secret that government at every level has become corrupt. The Obama administration after only 16 months in power is the most dangerously corrupt in history. Unless something is done, we will no longer be a free country in four years. In eight years the size of state government...
