Letter: Omdahl underestimates the danger in doing business with China

Connor disagrees with Lloyd Omdahl's recent column calling China "nothing but a mischievous pussycat"

".....China is nothing but a mischievous pussycat." writes Lloyd
Omdahl in his recent column " The 'red scare' is back ."

It reminds me of the 50's Looney Tunes cartoon with Tweety (the canary) and
Sylvester (the pussycat). Tweety's favorite line was "I tawt I taw a Puddy Tat," which if compared to current world conditions pretty well puts the U.S. in the position of being Tweety (the canary)!

I sure hope and pray that Omdahl is right in his assessment of Sylvester. Oops, I mean China!

Hedman writes, "For those who are paying attention, the betrayal of our legacy by the former president is on full display. Some people are showing honesty and bravery by testifying about the coup attempt and false claims of voter fraud. Others, such as the North Dakota congressional delegation are denying the truth."
Jorgensen writes, "If God created a person with a particular sexual orientation, how can another person assume that this was not an act of God?"
Wannemacher writes, "In a nation consumed for the past two years with the delusions of a side show hustler and his election scam, a major political party that agrees the unfettered right to possess guns is more important than the lives of its own citizen and a Supreme Court capable to stripping the rights of an entire gender of American to the bone, independence hardly seems an appropriate sentiment to celebrate."
Kaye writes, "It is also bewildering that Oakland, whose expertise is in energy efficiency, would embrace a scheme that would reduce the efficiency of coal plants from their current 30% to 18%, making coal, by far, the least efficient form of energy production. Every other government is trying to make their energy production more efficient, and we are striving to make ours less efficient."
