Writer supports voter ID laws
To the Editor: Americans are required to show identification before we can drive a car, board a plane, open a bank account, donate blood, rent a hotel room, get a mortgage, buy a house, pick up a prescription, hold a rally, receive social security or Medicaid and purchase a cellphone, an M rated video game, some cold medicines, guns, alcohol, cigarettes, and nail polish at CVS! I've never heard any of these requirements called discrimination.

A rebuttal on the mine
To the Editor: Tom Tiffany's recent mocking of Mary Burke's stance on the mine requires rebuttal. Tiffany touts the mine as northern Wisconsin's economic salvation, but we are concerned it could just as easily become an environmental disaster.

Homeland insecurity
To the editor: Why is it that most politicians of both parties have no problem subsidizing the Iron Dome to protect Israel from enemy air attacks with billions of dollars in taxpayer money but claim they haven't the funds to build a fence to protect our southern border?

Setting the record straight
To the editor: Andy Loduha's guest editorial, "Don't buy the liberal spin," in last Saturday's paper clearly illustrates once again how out of touch Republicans are with the realities of ordinary people's lives.
