A recent letter expressed what would happen if Joe Biden were elected president. Here is what I think will happen if Donald Trump and his Russian accomplices cheat enough to win:

Just when my left eye stopped twitching from the I-5 shooter, while getting used to shallow breathing through a mask, kicking and screaming against forced hermit status, not hugging my grandbaby due to COVID-19, and renovating a very old wobbly house, we get wildfires.

Dear Democrats: Instead of always bashing President Trump and other Republicans in your letters, why don't you write what you love about Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party?

OK, Douglas County veterans. You've all read the most recent cruel, disparaging remarks our president made about veterans. When in France in 2018, he refused to visit a veteran's cemetery because it was filled with "losers." He called World War I marines and Vietnam veterans, "suckers."

In reference to Robert Heilman's guest column that ran in The News-Review on Sept. 2: I must say it was a breath of fresh air to find an article that demonstrated intelligence. Yes, intelligence, a quality sadly lacking in our local and national leaders.

I am not a veteran or an active service member, so perhaps my opinion about Trump’s attitude toward those who have or are currently serving, and toward those who were killed in battle, will be ignored by those who have served.

It’s an interesting world that we are living in, and I believe it’s beyond important to be able to see the full picture. I especially feel for people who are living in fear. Not to discount the actual problems we face as a society. It’s always wise to really be open and look at all the facts…

In “normal” times, our government runs a big deficit. In pandemic times, it is no longer a sinking ship, but a salvage expedition. China and Japan, who buy or treasury bonds, are no longer confident in getting paid back. They will be very unlikely to buy bonds and bail us out — they are stru…

The timber industry is the driving wheel of the Douglas County economy, like it or not. Congressman Peter DeFazio has walked a fine line between the legitimate concerns of both the environmental and conservation communities, and our local timber industry.

During the landing at Anzio, I was Treated on the hospital ship U.S.S. Comfort. Ships are not very stable platforms, so I was strapped to the operating table and given a spinal. About halfway through the operation, the Germans decided to bomb the ship.

Todd Vaughn just him my last nerve. He's a know-it-all kind of guy who believes in plantation forests and aerial spraying over open sources of water that causes cancer. I'm so happy to learn that, just like Trump, he tends to bend the truth to some extent.

So the pollsters and news reporters like to point out that college-educated people vote Democrat and non-college-educated people vote Republican, implying that smart people vote Democrat and dumb people vote Republican.

You cannot stop individuals from being racist, but you can stop the system from being racist. That is what we need to do. Now. We must not reelect any representative at any level that does not agree with this.

On Aug. 28, I went to my local grocery store and, as I approached the store, I saw a woman in a red hat yelling at a male employee next to the entrance. He was wearing a mask and she wasn't, and her hat said, "Trump."

This is for you, the voter who is letting hate make your decisions. If your only information sources are mainstream media, Hollywood elites and highly paid athletes, you are being grossly misinformed.

These Democrats have no ability to be fair. I can't believe their spouting off. You play Ring Around the Rosie with every issue, and now, poof, they care about the riots, the looters and the murdered during looting.

I think most Americans would agree that it is the responsibility of our national government to solve national problems. Right now we have three urgent national problems — a pandemic, an economic crisis and a racial injustice crisis.

Let’s get something straight right now: Donald Trump is not always entirely honest. For that matter, neither am I. How about you? Anyone who is passionate about anything tends to bend the truth to some extent, and that is to be expected, but the Democrats have officially gone ballistic and v…
