To the Editor:

November 2, 2021 Republicans had many wins, in Virginia Glenn Youngkin became governor. Republican Winsome Sears, the first woman and woman of color was elected Virginia’s lieutenant governor.

In a speech for Democrat Terry McAuliffe Democrat VP Kamala Harris said, “What happens in Virginia will in large part determine what happens in 2022, 2024 and on.” Republicans will win in 2022, 2024.

Democrat James Carville blames “stupid wokeness” for Democrat losses. “Don’t just look at Virginia and New Jersey,” Carville said, pointing to Republican wins everywhere from Long Island, New York, to Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Seattle, Washington. There’s backlash and frustration.

The Woke media and their Democrat partners claimed that Critical Race Theory is not being taught in schools. Parents know that is a lie. Critical Race theory teaches racism; the color of your skin is who you are, not the ‘content of your character.’

The Biden Administration is brainwashing our children with Marxist Race Theory; using the FBI to arrest and intimidate parents speaking out at local school board meetings; mandating masks and vaccines, transgenderism; causing massive inflation and the highest energy prices in years.

Biden’s tax and spend policies, are ruining America’s economy, it’s the most crucial role in determining the support of the people. It’s the people that have to pay for the tax hikes. Corporations pass higher costs onto the consumer. Inflation is a tax on the poor.

‘Let’s go Brandon’ #1 song on iTunes. No one supports Biden.

Isn't it time that this whole post and comments following it is turned off? It could go on forever, but it is so over done. Put a fork in it and call it finished.

Sallie Helmer

So sorry you are upset by comments. Please do yourself a favor and just refuse to read the comments. Problem solved.

“Sallie, you believe that the rest of the world is out of step with you. Me thinks it's the other way around.“

Thank you Michael for your comments. I don’t agree with you, but I am not threatened by you. I don’t have to call you a racist or full of hate to disagree with you. You will have to realize eventually that the Biden administration’s policies are not good for America and most Americans already know it. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Mark Alexander

Shame on riponpress for yet again posting sallies lunacy. If you were informed at all about the real reasons for the current inflation you wouldn't be posting your ignorant nonsense. I asked Sallie many times to explain how she could support trump being a religious person when he's had so many scandals and has been a disgusting human being. Never got a reason that explained that chain of logic. There was a chant for trump too, it was Let's Go crazy selfish narcissist fraud Dondon

Sallie Helmer

Ripon Press still accepts the fact that in America my opinion is just as valuable as your opinion. You don't have an opinion on why Democrats lost important elections November 2, 2021. All you write is about me-- not your opinion. Please give your opinion. Trump admitted he had failed as a Christian in his life time. He asked God for forgiveness through Jesus Christ his Savior and the one and only mediator between God and man. I guess you missed that.

Please tell us again how great and sinless the Biden family and the other elite Democrats are. We need a good laugh.

Lee Emrich

The best is yet to come. It's the time of the year when a person filled with hatred and racism will now give us a bible quote before Thanksgiving and Christmas. Sometimes it's a different Heller but I consider them the same. It's a perfect example of why many people don't want to have anything to do with organized religion. Apparently lies,deception and hatred are all acceptable in their Jim Jones style religion. For many years I've eagerly awaited weekly to read her nonsense and then forward to friends around the country (mostly Republicans). However, it's no longer amusing to any of us, it's just sad. So I've decided to call it quits after their upcoming hypocritical religious post and go out of my way not to even give her garbage the time of day. Last if you wonder why I said she is racist I think you can tell by her tone but if you don't necessarily pick up on that go back to where she says Barack "Hussein" Obama. That usually tells a lot about a persons hatred. It must be tough to decide what to hate more, the so called "radical" Christian church he attended for years, or the fact that his middle name is "Hussein" which must make him a radical Muslim. Tough choice!

Sallie Helmer

Hi Lee,

It is the easiest thing in the world to call a person a racist. Being Muslim is not a race. You don’t understand my political reasoning or my faith in Jesus Christ as my Savior. So you call it racism. You need to study the Bible more and read more about Conservatism. You will be pleasantly enlightened. May God Bless You.

Lee Emrich

It's not worth a long reply, beside I'm laughing to hard. There's nothing more entertaining than listening to a person filled with hate and racism explain why they're not. Then turning to the bible is right out of the playbook.

Michael Shohoney

Sallie, you believe that the rest of the world is out of step with you. Me thinks it's the other way around.

Al Fresco

Most likely Jesus doesn't understand your faith either. He could at least find goodness in others.

Michael Shohoney

Sallie, your level of pure hatred and vitriol toward anyone with an opposing view to your own rivals Trump's. He apparently set the example for you and you're running with it. The ironic thing is that you are what you accuse others of. You really need to look in the mirror and ask yourself if you are being the person you think you are. Governing happens from the middle. Not the far right. Not the far left. Effective legislation happens when the two opposing sides get together and COMPROMISE. Will the extreme factions of the parties be happy? No. But, can they live with it? Yes. You are extreme. You need to understand that if you want it all your way or no way, you will get absolutely nothing. Also, I am concerned about your level of delusion regarding the 2020 election. You truly need to talk to someone regarding facts and reality. It's time to accept and move on.

Sallie Helmer

I am not sure if you noticed, but Joe Biden is not governing from 'the middle'. He campaigned as a moderate, but he is a radical leftist Socialist. Thank You for denouncing Biden as a radical Democrat.

You cannot compromise with people who are breaking the law, The Constitution is the law of the land. You think others who defend the Constitution are extreme. Many who believe like you do want government by feelings not law!

Thank you for your concern for me. I was concerned for you when after the 2016 election when President Donald John (I can write his middle name--unlike while Barrack was running for president-- the media was told not to use his middle name--Hussein) Trump won. Democrats tried for over three years to prove Trump colluded with the Russians. The Durham report reveals 'the Steele Dossier was all fake--- paid for by the Democrats. Indictments are being made and the wrong doing includes Barrack Hussein Obama. Your perceived truth is not derived from facts.

Michael Shohoney

Sallie, please explain how Biden (a centrist) is a radical leftist. Please. The infrastructure bill (13 Republicans voted for it) was a COMPROMISE! Again, your delusions are rearing their ugly heads!

The Constitution is not the law of the land. Period. Laws are written using the framework and foundations laid out by the Constitution. So, your statement is totally inaccurate. Also, please explain who is breaking the law and how.

The Mueller Report states very clearly that crimes were indeed committed, likely by Trump and his representatives. However, Mueller further stated that, in his opinion, a sitting President could not be prosecuted. So, again, your statement is completely false.

Michael Shohoney

I stand corrected, 32 Republicans voted for it. Who doesn't want infrastructure improvement? Oh, yeah, you and your Trumpian friends.

Dale Failor

Michael, she is a true RepubliCON.

Sallie Helmer

If the 2022 elections were held this November, registered voters would back Republican candidates over Democratic opponents 51-41.

According to the poll, 70% of Americans have a negative view of how the economy is doing under Biden, while 38%, almost 4 in 10, believe the economy is in "poor" condition.

Sallie, that is a moot point. The elections are NOT being held this November.

Sallie Helmer

Don’t blame me, I didn’t vote for Joe Biden.

Dale Failor

How original, just like other GOP lame comments.

Adam Umbreit

Democrats are getting things done FOR THE PEOPLE and with bipartisan support, something Republicans could never get done. This is why people like you are so afraid Sallie. Keep up the propaganda Sallie because you are only helping Democrats and the fight for the American people.

Sallie Helmer

So sad to hear how you think, Adam.

Globalism, inflation, and the supply chain

Quoting Al Fresco---

"You certainly like to blame Biden for everything. It's overcast today and there are snow flurries. Care to blame Biden on this one as well, or is it a Democrat plot that winter is around the corner?"

I don't just blame Biden----I blame You---- for voting for Biden. Biden is so bad for America perhaps even you will experience it.

Al Fresco

You write: A Democrat wants the right to legislate equality and a Republican want the right to earn equality.

That is one of the most racist comments you've made to date.

Sallie Helmer

Hi Al,

How could that statement possibly be racist? Our Constitution states--

“No State shall… deny to any person the equal protection of the laws.”

We all have equal opportunity under the Constitution to earn equality. The law does not take from one individual and give to another to legislate equality. That is the definition of Socialism.

Sallie Helmer

“This is almost too good to be true. Under Donald Trump, one of the smartest, most constructive Presidents of all time, oil production in the USA surged.

Fracking fulfilled and overfulfilled its promise all over the nation. Oil pipelines carried the good stuff from where it was pumped to where it was needed. America became the world’s largest oil producer and had the largest reserves. We became major oil exporters.

Then came the moron fake environmentalists and their hologram stooge, “Joe” Biden.” Ben Stein

Thanks for the reminder. You are quite the character and so is your character.

Sallie Helmer

A Democrat wants the right to legislate equality and a Republican want the right to earn equality.

Dale Failor

Sallie this just come in on recent gas prices. Ca $4.62, Hawaii $4.33, Nevada, $3.95, Wa. $3.87, Or. $3.77,Ut. $3.72. Wash. DC, $3.61, and Ill, $3.60. You can clearly see the highest prices are on the west coast. Now lets compare apples to apples. Stop spreading false news as always.

Dan Gatzke

I just filled up at Kwik Trip in Fond du Lac for $2.92 a gallon. Price in Ripon is $3.19. Why the difference? Don't blame this on Biden - it's corporate greed!

Sallie Helmer

U.S. consumer prices jumped 6.2% in past year, most since 1990

Do you think that is ‘corporate greed’ as well? You actually believe government policies have nothing to do with rising prices. Have you ever heard of the ‘price per barrel’ of oil or do you really expect filling stations to operate at a loss? Biden shut down— on day one—- of his administration the XL pipeline and is in the process of shutting down another pipeline that brings oil into our country— on our own soil. Biden has made us reliant on foreign oil that is why prices are higher.

Al Fresco

You certainly like to blame Biden for everything. It's overcast today and there are snow flurries. Care to blame Biden on this one as well, or is it a Democrat plot that winter is around the corner?

Adam Umbreit

Economics 101 Sallie. When you have a bunch of folks working from home for an entire year, and who have the time to buy many products but production is shut down and nothing more is being produced, we eventually see a shortage. When there is a shortage the price goes up. Now that production is back up prices will go back down. Top economists have already said that. Apparently Sallie must have missed that announcement... Also, Sallie, if you ever did your homework, much of the Keystone crude oil gets shipped out of the country to China and South America. In Fact they said shutting it down would have no impact on American oil prices...some FACTs for ya Sallie.

Joellyn Jaeger

"In the past year." Your words Sallie. Biden has not been president for a full year. It started under Trump. Biden is trying to move forward and fix what Trump messed up. A monumental task for ANY new administration.

Sallie Helmer

Apples to apples? Gas prices are getting higher not lower. What are you comparing?

Al Fresco

Fuel prices fluctuate due to supply and demand. There are many causes for the fluctuations. Think ahead and opt for alternative energy sources. Fossil fuels are not the answer for the planet's sake.

Sallie Helmer

Biden did exactly that, he disrupted supply, causing higher prices.

Dale Failor

And lemons to lemons.

Joellyn Jaeger

I support Biden, and i am a someone just as you are.

Sallie Helmer

Out of curiosity— why do you support Biden?

Dale Failor

Why would you ask him that Sallie? Nothing would ever change your mind on how you feel about anything.

Sallie Helmer

If someone says they support Biden, why not ask them why they support Biden? I think they would want to explain why they support Biden? Why do you support Biden, Dale Failor? You should be so happy to explain why you love Biden. Is it because you are a Socialist, Globalist and hate America and Capitalism?

Bill Bumby

With your low brow “Let’s go, Brandon” euphemism, you prove once again that there’s no such thing as wit on the right. Fun fact, Sallie… It triggers no one

Sallie Helmer

It triggered you, Bill.

Al Fresco

Other than expressing hatred for Democrats, what is your point?

Sallie Helmer

Patriotism for our country that I love is not hatred, neither is it racism. I would love to hear why you think Biden, the Democrats and their media are good for America. Please explain!

Adam Umbreit

For one Sallie, they are getting bi-partisan things done FOR THE PEOPLE and not sending trillions in OUR TAX DOLLARS to their wealthy business owners for jobs and trickle down economics that never happened. Why do you think taking from the low and middle class and giving their money to the wealthy is good for America Sallie? Please explain!

Sallie Helmer

For the people? The majority of the people do not agree with taking money from one group of people who work and giving it to illegal aliens.

Al Fresco

Being white and intolerant of others and their viewpoints does not really add up to patriotism. We are all friends and neighbors who want the same: community and a place to call home. Democrats and bipartisanship have done much for Wisconsin and the country. Republicans of the past have also contributed to our progress. Now Republicans want to tear apart the country by dividing people. It's all about attacking others and conquering. And, don't blame Democrats for getting us to this point. Republicans share much of the blame.

Sallie Helmer

I am sorry you feel like a victim. Democrats divide people that is what Critical Race Theory teaches. Dividing the races— whites are oppressors and all other races are oppressed. Schools that teach that are teaching State sponsored racism. Republicans do not treat blacks as stupid, our government policies treat everyone as equal, with equal opportunity for all. Democrats treat blacks as lessor citizens who need handouts. Republicans give blacks a hand up— job opportunities and good schools.

Joellyn Jaeger

Do you even know what critical race theory is, and at what age it is offered- not forced upon students ?

Al Fresco

Yes, "Republicans do not treat blacks as stupid" but they certainly do their best to discourage them from voting. Why is it that Wisconsin has the nation's highest incarceration rate for blacks?

You haven't a clue what CRT is. It is an academic theory taught only in law schools, if at all. It has never been taught in any school below college level.

By the way, I do not feel the victim. Again you are seeing the world as you want it to be seen and not as it really is. Good luck!
