From Our Readers...

Issue Date: September 16, 2021

Dear Editor:

What a mess we now have in our laps.  We have a clueless old president in year one of four. Everything he has touched has gotten worse. The biggest problem right now is the pandemic but it is not the only one unfortunately.   Many businesses are struggling to survive and cannot find enough workers or materials. There are many bare shelves in stores and I do not know of one manufacturing business that has adequate supplies other than perhaps the dairy industry. My brother-in-law hauls milk and he tells me there is plenty of it and prices to the farmers are low. Afghanistan is unlikely to ever go away and do not be surprised when we are fighting terrorists a lot closer to home. It seems like there was not a good plan to get out of Afghanistan as billions of dollars of weapons and equipment were left behind. The stuff that was "disabled" can still be used as parts for the ones that were not. It seems lots of items are still useable. Oops . . . . . .

 Now the president wants employers to force their employees to get shots. If employers do they will bore the brunt of the legal responsibility if/when things happen to any of these people.  Remember the shots are not free either, the government (tax payers) are footing the bills. I doubt that the employers want to police this action and keep track of it all. Assuming that some people won't get shots and they lose their jobs who is going to fill these additional openings?  Many employers are short workers already so losing 10% to 40% or more may finish off some businesses big and small. How is the unemployment world going to deal with these people? The workers comp folks are still failing from what I am hearing.

 Evidently there are some businesses that do not have to follow the rules. Sports stadiums are packed with people with few wearing masks and none practicing "social distancing".  We know that masks and social distancing don't work because if they did this pandemic would be over. The shots are not truly a vaccine as they do not prevent a person from getting covid but they are supposed to lessen the symptoms. Of course this is speculation as there is no way to test or confirm this.  I know several people that had their shots and still got covid. All of them were definitely sick, some very sick.

 It used to be that America was the land of the free, people could practice any religion they chose and decide things for themselves. It seems like the president, many politicians and many medical folks have forgotten this already. I wish I had a solution for us. 

Sincerely,

Pete Pfankuch,

Crivitz

Although Aquila Resources has decided to take this opportunity to offer themselves to Gold Resources, this does not change the complexion of the threat to the Menominee River.

Aquila is in financial trouble with their stock price as low as less than a nickel per share. This is simply a move to sidestep bankruptcy.

The Coalition to SAVE the Menominee River and their affiliates continue to stand strong with our staff of attorneys to protect this large waterway to the Great Lakes.

Be assured, that this battle has gone on for 20 years and will continue to go on until these speculative mining organizations give up on ever getting close to the Menominee River.

Sincerely,

Dale Burie,

Coalition to SAVE the Menominee River, Inc.



To the Editor:

In my medical training I was commanded to "Argue from the evidence." What that meant was that I was not to rush to a diagnosis by gut instinct, but rather to gather facts first.

Then render a judgement about a problem that I could support based on a patient's clinical presentation. For example, to make a cancer diagnosis I had to have symptoms, like weight loss or bleeding, and a biopsy of tissue with abnormal cells. I always had to justify my conclusions with evidence. "Argue from the evidence."

Today, in America, we seem to argue from the gut. The mood is, "I want to believe this, and therefore I do. What does evidence have to do with anything?" My response is: "Everything." Without evidence, a diagnosis in error can result in unnecessary treatment and even death.

A large group of people in America believe, without evidence, that the 2020 election was "stolen." They believe this because that is what the former president and many Republican politicians have alleged. They attempted to have this reviewed in over 60 courts of law, but no judge (Republican or Democrat) ruled that they had any claim on truth because they lacked evidence. Several lawyers who brought these cases have lost their licenses to practice. There was an insurrection based on that false belief. The U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, under the Trump Administration, stated, "There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes or was in any way compromised." The 2020 election was not stolen.

Allegations are not evidence, they are just that??allegations. In Salem, Massachusetts, in the 1600's, there were allegations that witches were the cause of disease and death and many persons were publicly executed. Many people believed it was true. It was not. We now know that the allegations were without evidence.

Just like in medicine where an incorrect diagnosis can lead to disastrous results, an inaccurate belief that an election was stolen can lead to a badly damaged democracy. In America, I was taught that every eligible adult had a vote and that it should count. On balance, we together make the best choices for everyone. President Biden had over 7 million more votes than Trump in 2020??based on evidence. The allegation that the election was stolen is a lie. Democracy depends on all Americans working together to form a more perfect union. We can't do that if we can't learn to "Argue from the evidence."

Editor:

The phrase "following the science" is wearing quite thin and seems to cherry-pick which sciences are followed and which are chosen to be ignored.

The difference between fact and truth is that, wile "facts" can be (and are) developed out of thin air and/or heavily manipulated to a useable definition, "truths" are built on solid foundations, never changing the not capable of manipulation. Any such tampering results in creating "facts", whether they pertain to the Constitution, Biblical scriptures, historical events, etc. One source (a contributing journalist) from The Epoch Times commented that "church sermons have become more Marx that Bible". Sad but true in all denominations gradually over time. Didn't notice? For example: Twisting and stretching Biblical references to compassion and charity to the point of "enabling", and becomes yet another form of "wealth redistribution"??a communist ploy referred to in the last few years.

That being said, how about "following the science" pertaining to abortions? Since Row v Wade, huge advances reveal proofs (for those who need it). Ultrasounds prove that life begins at conception and fetuses are not just a blob of tissue. At 6 weeks or earlier, fetal heartbeats are recorded and proof the baby feels physical pain. Additionally, the baby has it's own blood type (may or may not be same as the mother's), it's own DNA, and certainly it's own little soul, for starters. Women state they have the right to make decisions concerning their own bodies. True, but it is not THEIR bodies that are being murdered. It is the babies' bodies which in many cases are ripped out of the womb one body part at a time. The women's bodies are still here.

So when you claim to be following the "science", make sure it isn't the science-fiction "facts" based on motive-driven manipulations devoid of truth.
