Letters to the editor for May 2, 2013

Union Democrat staff /

Sonoran makes a few suggestions

To the Editor:

1. Schools: Bring back shop classes - not everyone is going to go to college, so we need to train our future blue collar workers. In shop classes kids have to learn to read, do math, use a ruler, and know the history of what they are doing.

2. Politics: Democrat, Republican, Independent, what have you - I'd vote for you if you could come up with some real workable solutions up front of all of your political rhetoric and share them with us so we could know what your real plans entail. If you should lose, and don't refuse to share them to hurt the other side, we all lose.

3. Religion: Don't force your religious beliefs down our throats, you have them, fine! Now keep them to your self. But mostly keep them out of government, just because your beliefs govern how you see the world, doesn't mean that's how I view the world. As you would like to be respected for what you belief in, so would I.

4. Drugs: Lets just all grow up and stop lying about the horrors of pot, I say "Smoke'm if you got'em."
