Hate big government? Try none at all

I completely agree with op-ed contributor Mark Thistel's commentary on the progress our country has made over the last century ("The not-so-good old days," Dec. 1).

If our country's government and laws have become so oppressive to some people, those that feel that way should know there is an alternative. It's a Utopia where big government, taxes and gun control laws don't exist.

You can walk down the middle of the street, armed to the teeth, and keep every cent you earn. This place is known as Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia. Good luck.

    Why not just give Iran the bomb?

    I have a great idea for an update to the Iran deal that would save a lot of time. We should go ahead and provide Iran with nuclear weapons and also some ICBMs. This will substantially shorten the time necessary for them to develop or purchase them on their own.

    Wow. City "leaders" getting ready for protests (also known as riots), thanks for the "heads up" ("City readies for protests," Aug. 27). It's time the law-abiding, taxpaying citizens of Baltimore say loud and clear: "Enough!"

    Don't coddle dirt-bikers

    I find it amazing that the illegal dirt bikers will probably have a place to ride some day ("City should have zero tolerance for dirt-bikes," Aug. 27). If it is illegal, how will they get to the area that will be provided without riding on the city streets? I guess it will soon be OK for me to...
