Scared of Trump and Palin?
Re “Sarah Palin goes rogue for Trump” (Editorials, Jan. 21): As I read this continuing left-wing propaganda from The Sacramento Bee’s editorial board, I was amused that it again soon evolved into name-calling and character attacks.
“It was Trump on steroids, or after several glasses of wine,” and “It was must-see TV for political junkies, but it was completely shallow.”
This editorial tells people that the editorial board is scared to death of Donald Trump, and now Sarah Palin.

Who is responsible for Palin’s son?
Re “Palin’s son arrested in home dispute” (Page 9A, Jan. 20): Sarah Palin links her son’s domestic violence arrest to what she says is a lack of leadership from President Barack Obama. I’m confused. Is Palin suggesting that a nanny state ought to be responsible for her son’s actions?
Mention Trump’s good points
With editorial cartoons and its editorials, The Sacramento Bee editorial board continually bashes Donald Trump. Yes, he is politically incorrect and not liked by the Republican establishment. Still, it might be worthwhile for the editorial board to occasionally mention his good points.
First: If by chance Trump became president, he would owe no one, and so will not have to give “payback” to the big donors, like everyone else running, who have had millions contributed to them. Second: He would run the government like he runs his business. He would hire only the best, most competent people available to his cabinet and as advisers, unlike the clowns and incompetents who now are entrenched in the cabinet and other political posts. Third: He would listen to his advisers and heed them.
And that might not be such a bad way to govern our great country.
False concerns over socialist label
Re “Clinton turns Sanders’ socialist label against him” (Insight, Jan. 20): So, Democrats backing Hillary Clinton have a problem with Bernie Sanders as a socialist. I hope that they do not use Medicare, Social Security, public colleges and universities, and I hope they don’t take water from Folsom, Shasta or Oroville dams, use the postal service or Veterans Administration, California Public Employees’ Retirement System, California State Teachers’ Retirement System, credit unions or the freeway systems, or the California water system or most of the levies.

Rice farmers have short memory
Re “Farmers oppose SMUD’s new power line plans” (Local, Jan. 17): Are these the same rice farmers who had no problem polluting the Sacramento Valley by waiting for the north wind to blow to ignite their rice stubble until legislation outlawed the practice?

Hey, Sac State, we’re in a drought
Bicycling past Sacramento State on Monday, after a stormy weekend, I dodged big puddles on the bike trail and stopped in amazement to see multiple, huge spouts of water from sprinklers all over the campus. They went on and on and on. Really?!
