Let­ters hit on good points

West Hawaii Today - - Opinion - Carol Buck

I loved the “My Turn” in the Nov. 14 ed­i­to­rial sec­tion. Jan­ice Palma-Glen­nie ap­par­ently has an ex­cel­lent way of telling it like it re­ally is. How­ever, call­ing and/or telling the Repub­li­can se­na­tors and the pres­i­dent that you don’t like what they’re do­ing may not ac­com­plish their ac­tu­ally do­ing some­thing that is morally right.

We who are vot­ers in Hawaii are not the con­stituents of most of the Repub­li­cans in Congress. In fact, are there ac­tu­ally any Repub­li­can Con­gress­peo­ple who rep­re­sent any of us here in this state?

I also have to agree al­most whole­heart­edly with Char­lie Webb’s let­ter in the same sec­tion, es­pe­cially af­ter read­ing the ar­ti­cle about the pres­i­dent ap­point­ing white men (no women?) as judges within the fed­eral court sys­tem. How­ever — are all those white men racists and/or sex­ists? Prob­a­bly not, but only time will tell how many of them ac­tu­ally prac­tice the prin­ci­ples within the United States Con­sti­tu­tion, which they must fol­low.
