Inaccuracies in recent letters

The letter about voting machines states that for voting machines to have had a problem, “one must believe that every person involved in the manufacturing, acquisition, maintenance, and use of said machines was involved.” No, only the software needed to have a “problem” and the “problem” could have been a late add-on to millions of lines of code.

The letter about liberal whining states that “the blue states produce no food, no water, no oil, no electricity, …” He seems to have forgotten Blue Diamond Almonds, Calrose Rice, Foster Farms Chickens, plus olives, oranges, peaches, walnuts, etc. just from California, also water from Northern California reservoirs, oil from Southern California and electricity from numerous power plants. For the most part California as a blue state gives and produces more, especially in taxes, than we receive. East coast blue states are also mostly rich states.
