How low can he go?

The 2020 presidential election should be a real doozy. The Trump campaign playbook in this midterm election was focused on hate, fear, and lies. Just a day prior to the election, multiple media outlets cancelled an ad with potentially racial overtones that the Trump campaign was running. ...

Not fit for tourists

Planning on a trip to visit California anytime soon? There are probably a few facts you need to know. In his book, Tucker Carlson noted the city of Los Angeles had 55,188 homeless people and 75 percent of them were living in the open air of the city. The homeless were found passed out on ...

Gun control

Liberals demand more gun control after every shooting, but they never demand more border control after every rape and murder by an illegal alien. I have no problem with vigorous background checks, but do the same for immigration and voter ID. Charles Ardell South Williamsport

Unfair taxation

I believe us senior citizens, when we reach age 70, should not have to pay school taxes. We have already paid for our education and several decades of other peoples’ kids. People on welfare who are able to somehow buy lottery tickets can pay their fair share of school taxes. Colleges rake ...

Senator Warren farce

This concerns the case where a Russian woman was charged by the United States with conspiring in a sweeping effort to sway American public opinion through social media in the first federal case alleging foreign interference in our 2018 midterm elections. This is a touch subject and regardless ...

Loophole

Overlooked when talking about the Constitution is that immigrants must go to become naturalized citizens “to confer the rights of a citizens on or become or cause to become established, as if a native.” Remember Ellis Island? Immigrants are welcome as long as they go through the proper ...

Common sense

Immigrants are the hope and future of the United States. We see stories of suffering people and desperate families leaving their homelands to seek a better life within our nation's borders, and our hearts are moved to compassion; yet we notice our nation's disjointed, complex, and non-sensible ...

School uniforms?

As a sophomore from Williamsport Area High School, I support the idea of students having to wear uniforms at school. I support this idea for two reasons and as a student myself most of these general points have affected me during the years I've gone to school. With uniforms, it allows students ...

Complicit

To remain silent is to be complicit. I don’t remember who first said this but its wisdom is evident, especially in a democracy where each citizen is both responsible for and also able to shape the future at the ballot box. I came of age during the struggle for civil rights and lived ...

Measuring opinions

In your Oct. 30, edition you had two letters, including one from Lt. Colonel Michael Lichty, USAF, Morris. Regarding Act 79. Great letter and I for one agree 100% with every word of it. As a victim of vindictive false allegation myself, I can attest that in this state all the spouse has to do ...

A leap

Sick of it

I am really sick of reading letters in the paper defending illegal immigration as though you Dems really care about the people themselves. You all know very well why you are in favor of them coming here. I can show any of you videos of Bill Clinton, Chuck Schumer and your favorite president, ...

In the beginning

In recent times, I have heard science has proven God does not exist. I’m sure this would come as a surprise to the 60 percent of scientists who are agnostic or theistic. Even some of those who are atheists would never be so bold as to claim science has proven the case. There are many ...
