Disagrees with columnist about changing Constitution
Ensure we get just people in office

I found the editorial regarding "apology accepted" refreshing. I follow politics pretty closely for the most part, but I missed this particular subject matter.
Once again, Rock Island has deleted history! Rock Island had the honor of being the birthplace for the very first NFL football game at Douglas Park. For decades, the city did nothing to maintain the horse-drawn firehouse there and made a feeble attempt to save/restore it by announcing the in…
What worries a climate "scientist?" After listening to this menagerie of lies from the so-called experts, I have to wonder if I'm on a different planet sometimes. None dare mention the elephant in the room that is climate engineering.
According to a recent report in the Guardian: Over two years following the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, approximately 12 million American adults (4.4% of the adult population) believe violence is justified to restore Donald Trump’s presidency.
As a taxpayer in the state of Iowa, I am concerned about the waste that is in the welfare system. With multiple employment vacancies listed on every street in the Quad-Cities for decent paying positions, why are so many healthy and capable people not gainfully employed? Why are my taxes providing cash subsidies for people who are able to work?
Nancy Jacobson's June 20 editorial, "The two parties plot to subvert a third choice," gave me hope and confidence in the independent "No Labels" group. And if the Gallup Poll is accurate, half of our nation's voters would likely feel the same way.
America will prosper if we: Return to Christian principles and believe in miracles. Return to secure borders. Build walls where needed. Return to the melting pot concept.
This is an answer to Joe J. Jimenez of Blue Grass. Joe, it's not about age but the fact that Biden is in the first stage of dementia and his age does show when trips over and over again. As for Grassley at 90 he's still as sharp as a tack. By the way, Joe, I'm a little older than Joe. I don't go around falling all the time.
I accept the apology, and let's cordially move on. I'd be happy to talk to the cartoonist offline, too - I'm empathetic to people who make mistakes once in awhile. Let's not go further or see people get fired over it; the cartoonist should in no way be 'canceled.' We are all human.
Being a product of the 1950s politics, I did not have a central political issue in life nor did anyone else I knew. Except for my dad. Never heard any kind of opinion from him about anything until JFK was elected.
It seems that a large number of my friends are “woke.” For the GOP, being woke is very bad.
On Friday, June 9, I spent several hours watching the recorded commencement ceremonies at Cedar Rapids High School, chosen because my middle son is employed there, but I presume that those at the other schools across our state were similar. And I was very impressed.
Everyone should think and pray about Major League Baseball and the Dodgers. From the shadows, they laugh at you and your families like demons.
My family and friends recently had the opportunity to view the immersive Van Gogh exhibit at the River Center in Davenport. We thoroughly enjoyed the exhibit and did not have adequate adjectives to describe the experience ... awesome, fabulous, incredible, to name a few. Kudos to the River Center for bringing the exhibit to eastern Iowa and educating us to the artistic genius of Vincent Van Gogh.
Senator Grassley calls those in California "Eggheads" because they are trying to lessen the suffering of sows giving birth.
I am proud to endorse Jasmine Schneider as the future Mayor of Davenport. Overlooked by media thus far, Mrs. Schneider has been diligently conducting her mayoral campaign for well over a month. In a time of nonexistent, effective or substantive leadership at City Hall, Mrs. Schneider emerges as the most promising choice for the impending November election.
Since 2021, our American justice system has arrested, indicted, arraigned, convicted and/or sentenced hundreds of Republicans, most for attempting to overturn the 2020 presidential election, or for participating in the insurrection on January 6, 2021. In response, Republican politicians, pundits and media have attacked the FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ) as being biased and “weaponized” by Democrats against Republicans.
The building collapse in Davenport was and is a terrible event and I certainly hope that all the parties involved are held accountable. Now I see the city of Davenport wants to make $600K from COVID relief funds available for folks affected. What does COVID relief funds have to do with a building collapse? COVID relief funds should have never been distributed in the first place by our federal government and they are surely not meant for apartment building collapse to only benefit a selected few people.
Mr. Wilcox, you say that Joe Biden is too old to be president in 2024. Charles Grassley is 90. What about Trump, he's no spring chicken!
We are being scammed by the leftists! How you may ask? Illegal immigrants, who are mostly migrating here for a better life, are being told to ask for asylum by left wing nut jobs. Most illegal immigrants do not qualify for US asylum.
Dear QCT: I am writing this letter due to three stories that have disturbed me after reading them.
I see in the June 8 newspaper that Iowa's governor wants me, an Illinois resident, to pay the cost of demolishing Wold's collapsed building via request she sent to President Biden, using federal tax money. My answer is "NO." Let the owner pay to demolish his own building. Again, the rich always looking out for another wealthy person!
