Letters to the Editor

Letter to the Editor: WRITER TRIES LEANING RIGHT

Editor, Times-Advocate: Slime indeed. How does someone get so far left that they can’t see what is right in front of them? The evidence of voter fraud is so apparent that you could almost trip over it. But Democrats only see what they want to see and hear what fits their narrative. Republicans have taken to calling it “drinking the […]

Letter to the Editor: STOP US VS. THEM ATTITUDE ON IMMIGRATION

Editor, Times-Advocate: Recently our Congressional Representative, Mr. Issa, emailed asking if I thought President Biden’s policies encouraged “the surge” in immigration. According to the Director of Trans-border Institute at USD, Professor Everard Meade, this is not a surge but rather a very normal seasonal situation. It is a humanitarian crisis, though and should be treated as such. Mr. Issa and […]

Letter to the Editor: ELKIN COLUMNS: INACCURATE REPRESENTATIONS

Editor, Times-Advocate: “Facts are stubborn things” argued a man whom many consider the Father of Modern Conservatism – Ronald Reagan. In more than one commentary, Times-Advocate columnist Rick Elkin has presented inaccurate information as if it were fact to support and advance his conservative view of our world and its tribulations. As some of these misrepresentations have in effect led […]

Letter to the Editor: TROUBLING ASPECTS OF YMCA’S DECISION TO SELL ITS ESCONDIDO CAMPUS

This letter was originally sent by Jack Anderson to the YMCA of San Diego County and is reprinted with his permission. I write this letter after reading the unsettling news in the Escondido Times-Advocate, that the YMCA of San Diego County intends to sell the Palomar Family YMCA facility. I am a 41-year resident of Escondido, and served on the […]

Letter to the Editor: INSURRECTION VS. PROTESTS

Editor, Times-Advocate: TA columnist Rick Elkin has disingenuously chosen Black History Month to attempt to compare a deadly insurrection against our democracy to the civil rights demonstrations of Martin Luther King and others. Mr. Elkin pointedly dares to compare the marchers attack on Congress where the “demonstrators” left behind 50 seriously injured police and two officers later committing suicide, with […]

Letter to the Editor: APPRECIATING MORE DIVERSE OPINIONS

Editor, Times-Advocate: I am not sure why people like Lori Hatley are so insistent that only opinions they agree with be printed in the publications they read. It is almost as though they do not agree that American needs a free and fair press, devoted to variety. Let me tell you how I see it: I like the Times-Advocate very […]

Letter to the Editor: REP ISSA VOTE IN SUPPORT OF MARJORIE GREENE

Editor, Times-Advocate: Representative Issa’s recent vote to not strip Marjorie Greene of her committee leadership roles shows his unwillingness to follow his constituents’ expectations. Only 24% of Republicans feel Greene is worthy of staying in her position, let alone remaining in her committee roles. Mr. Issa is following the fringe wing of his party which will hopefully come back to […]

Letter to the Editor: SENATORS: CONVICT DONALD TRUMP

Editor, Times-Advocate: My name is Michael and I am a small business owner in Escondido. Donald Trump must be convicted and disqualified from running for office ever again. The House impeached Trump for his incitement of an armed insurrection against the U.S. government to throw out the results of the presidential election. Now, it’s time for the Senate to act. […]

Letter to the Editor: POLICE REFORM: QUALIFIED IMMUNITY

Editor, Times-Advocate: We see good cops in our neighborhood every day. They are helping us and our neighbors in our greatest times of need when we are scared, in danger, or simply need another pair of hands. These cops are selfless and perform an essential public service for us all. These cops also don’t need qualified immunity.  Good cops do […]

Letter to the Editor: BE ANGRY, TRUMP LIED TO YOU

Editor, Times-Advocate: Be angry supporters of Trump. Be angry. You have a right to be angry. But not at who Donald Trump and the likes Lou Dobbs has told you to direct your anger at. You should be angry at Donald Trump and Lou Dobbs … and any other member of Republican leadership or conservative media who betrayed your trust, […]
