To the Editor:

The best promotion I ever got in 29 years in the Army was when I made buck sergeant (E5.) I thought I had it made. A lot of perks being a noncommissioned officer.

I soon found out it was not a walk in the woods. Everything my soldiers did, good or bad, I was responsible for. My platoon leader, platoon sergeant and the first sergeant made that very clear to me.

So it is with Governor Christie. He is responsible for the incident at the George Washington Bridge, a major entry to Manhattan. It doesn’t make any difference whether he knew or not. That is the way it is.

    My sincere hope is that all you posters keep up your hateful speech through the upcoming election cycles. It is the best motivation for a change in Texas and local leadership.

    Look it you can’t criticize dear leader if you’re white—that makes you a racist. You can’t criticize dear leader if you’re black that makes you a uncle Tom.

    That is probably so.
    Same with your Fearless Leader about the IRS, NSA, Fast and Furious, Benghazi and everything else he claims ignorance of.
