I found your editorial on “Gambling no golden egg for Illinois” interesting. We live in a state and country where our politicians think morals mean nothing, God’s laws and commandments mean nothing and are irrelevant. We have turned our back on God and yet we expect Him to bless us.

Well, it seems that Joe Biden and the Democrats have made up a new term to bad mouth President Trump. That word is "climate arsonist" whereby they blame Trump for all the wildfires and are trying to make us believe that global warming is causing these wildfires.
