In response to Mr. Bill LaCroix’s letter which appeared in the April 25, 2012 issue of the Bitterroot Star:
1. I normally do not dignify ad hominem comments/letters (attacking one’s opponent rather than dealing with the subject under discussion) by a direct response.
2. Clearly Mr. LaCroix’s comments are beyond reason regarding extremist views (Posse Comitatus), wanting dirty air and water, and a “blue-print for a communist one-world government” etc.
3. At the meeting referred to by Mr. LaCroix, he was asked three times to speak louder so as to facilitate the on-going discussion. Mr. LaCroix responded by angrily stating “listen to the tape if you want to know what I’ve said.” Hardly a positive approach to an exchange of ideas.
4. Finally, on April 24, 2012 a well known news caster on national news stated the “Left demonizes it opponents to promote its agenda and discredit opponents.” This is the approach used by Mr. LaCroix.
