Reasons for people’s fear and growing lack of faith run deep The June 30 Viewpoint by Daniel T. Weaver [“The god shopping plaza”] was timely.

We get closer every day to tyranny by an anti-American left wing party that wants Dictatorial powers over all of us. That's the true cause of the growing fear in America.

Maybe it is time for cyclists to stop worrying about being polite, and cease all the pavement they are entitled. Let cars pass in the next lane, just as they must with one another, or when passing motorcycles, farm animals or tractors. When everyone drives in a uniform manner, traffic maneuvering becomes easier to accomplish.

It is obvious that being considerate gets you killed. Be alive or be considerate: an easy choice.
