Don't give up on people

As long as we live, we will have other people who will disappoint us -- that is just part of living on this planet with at least one other person. If you will think about it, I believe you will agree that most of our disappointments come when those we love or have some relationship with have failed us in some way. It may be a spouse, a child, a member of our family, an employee, co-worker, a pastor, a good friend or any number of other people.

Global-warming alarmists

Dear editor: Letters' July 22 global-warming alarmist Gary Vogt reported that "93 percent of the man-made heat energy from burning fossil went into the world's oceans."

They lied again in their quest to deceive the people about global warming and/or climate change.

Oppose disability cuts

Dear editor: This morning, July 22, on KTHV news, I heard that people on Social Security Disability could face a cut in benefits next year. They stated the average amount received by a family was around $1,017 and they could see a $193 per month cut, close to my 20 percent prediction in a letter to the editor I submitted last January stating that the 114th Congress had passed new rules, which all new Congresses do, and one of the rules was to prohibit Congress from doing the routine transfer of money from the SS fund to SS Disability, something that's been done 11 times in the past. They share a common account.

Swallow your pride on flag

Dear editor: What does the Confederate flag mean? To many people in the South, it stands as a symbol to what they saw as interference from the federal government to their way of life. The flag not only represents their stand against interference, but to protect their way of life, which included the right to own slaves (human beings) and to exploit them for monetary gain.
