Letter to the editor: Stop the macho politics

To the editor:

The unpaid government workers are not responsible for the budget stalemate created by Trump’s childish demand to have his way. The border wall is not a national crisis or an emergency security situation. That “fake news” exists only in Trump’s racially prejudiced mind. Rather than punishing the innocent government workers, let’s establish consequences where they belong. Push for a law to stop paying the president and his staff, the senators, and house representatives, then see how promptly such ridiculous macho political conflicts are resolved.

Jerry Lyons,
