KAL is blinded by partisanship [Letter]

KALs' cartoon from April 13 ("Dogged opposition") is so wrong that I hardy know where to begin. For starters, it was the Republicans in Congress who championed Civil Rights legislation against fierce Democratic resistance. Secondly, what does a group like the tea party have to do with opposing civil rights for all Americans? I am not a member of the tea party, but their platform seems reasonable to me. Limited government, fair and reasonable taxation and government responsibility and accountability.

Finally , as the IRS scandal clearly shows, if civil rights were violated, the conservative groups were the targets. Lois Lerner and Rep. Elijah Cummings are up to their eyeballs in this scandal, and I hope they both go to prison.

The Baltimore Sun and KAL are so blind in their partisanship that reality takes a holiday with them. It would be laughable if it weren't so disgusting.

    Iran deal threatens Israel

    It is sad to see The Baltimore Sun's editorial board acknowledge its support for this awful deal with Iran ("A 'good enough' deal," July 27). War will not be the result if the deal is not signed, but at least the sanctions would still be in place. The only countries benefiting from this deal will...

    Last Wednesday, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said that we ought to phase out Medicare and that the nation needs to "move to a new system that allows them to have something, because they're not going to have anything."

    Eyedrops a flawed substitute for cataract surgery

    Every medical therapy must weigh both risks and benefits ("Genetics study points towards eyedrop cataract treatment," July 22). While eye drop therapy to treat cataracts sounds enticing, I am not sure its use is worth the potential development costs and risks.

    Another mass shooting, and who's responsible?

    I am a cinema buff, and I went to the Charles Theatre recently to see a wonderful film. While there I realized that another mentally ill person decided to vent his furies in a movie theater. This time in Lafayette, La. ("La. shooter a drifter with 'hate in his heart,'" July 25). This is the USA,...
