Easy solution for Democratic discontent

Tuesday was most interesting indeed. America continued the historical phenomenon of punishing the new president in the mid-terms, regardless of the job being done. When Obama got pummeled in the mid-terms, it was because he was doing a horrible job, in addition to the aforementioned phenomenon. This time, Trump was punished and he is doing a great job for Americans -- not necessarily, however, for Washington liberal Dems. My question is why do we continue the phenomenon? It seems counterproductive.

My solution to the great discontent of liberal Dems is actually quite simple. Votes for Dems on Nov. 6, 2018, were votes against the tax cuts that everyone, Dems included, appear to be enjoying. It was a vote against the lowest unemployment rate in history. It was a vote against a booming economy and a skyrocketing stock market. It was a vote against keeping illegals out of our country. So, here is the solution: Make the tax cuts only apply to Republicans; have Dems, who were employed because of Trump’s efforts, surrender those jobs; have Dems return financial gains that they have made as a result of Trump’s efforts; finally, have every Dem family take in a family of illegals to be financially responsible for. If these things could be done, Dems would be happy, and Republicans will also be happy. If Dems object, then why in the world did you vote as you did?

100 years after World War I ended

World War I ended on Nov. 11, 1918. In commemoration of the 100-year anniversary of the end of World War I my wife, Elizabeth Ann (Jones) Moskowitz, and myself, wish to acknowledge the service of World War I marines Alton Christmas Jones (wife's father) and William Howard Jones (wife's uncle) who fought in France and Belgium from September 1918 to November 1918.

They fought in many World War I battles, including Belleau Wood, the Verdun operations, Aisne-Marne Offensive, Meuse-Argonne Offensive, St. Mihiel Offensive and the Battle of Blanc Mont Ridge. William Howard received the French Croix de Guerre and the U.S. Silver Star for his service at Blanc Mont Ridge, France, on Oct. 3, 1918. The Silver Star award stated "by lying down in the middle of the road using his automatic pistol so effective that he staid the enemy counter attack until remainder of group could get in line."

We wish to also commemorate the 4 million U.S. military personnel mobilized for World War I and the 110,000 U.S. deaths.
