New definition of the bully pulpit

Christine Flowers - Syndicated Columnist

As Heidi Cruz left Cleveland’s Quicken Loans arena after her husband Ted gave his stemwinder at the Republican National Convention, she was escorted by security through a hostile crowd. Apparently, people in the audience were annoyed that Cruz hadn’t endorsed Donald “I Call Him Lyin’ Ted” Trump. They couldn’t believe that the Texan actually gave his national audience permission to vote their conscience. They were in shock he didn’t bring gold, frankincense and myrrh with him to the podium as a gift.

The racist history of cinema in San Marcos

Jordan Buckley - Letter to the Editor | 

Simply put, the early history of cinema in our town is marked by a steady tradition of white San Marcans gathering together to mock and devalue Black people – and sometimes worse, as a means to galvanize support for the Ku Klux Klan.

Clint Hopkins opened the Old Grand Opera House, on the corner of LBJ and Hutchinson Street, in 1915; two years later it would expand to become the first bonafide movie theatre in San Marcos. 

Politics is no longer about freedom

Ruben Gutierrez - Letter to the Editor | 

Editor, 

There was a time in my life that “Politics” was a passion, but, not anymore. Politics has become lately nothing more than voting for a King or Queen. And to make matters worst, the King delegates his power to the “Jacks”, or that is to say ... , to the “Knaves,” who deal unscrupplously with many dishonest merchants and bankers who could care less for America or its Laws, or its Freedom and Soveriegnty; or for that matter, for the People. 

Poor GOP and Democratic Leadership

Peter Stern - Letter to the Editor | 

It is a very frustrating time for American Citizens!

I have not cared for GOP leadership for the past several decades.  Those managing the Party have lost touch with the American people.  The GOP needs to re-engage American citizens and do what’s best for the nation and NOT only its special interests.

That said, the Democrats have similar issues and need to stop pushing for socialist agendas that are not in the best interests of our nation and start doing what is best for American citizens.
