Kavanaugh and forgiveness

When I look at the problems Justice Kavanaugh had in his early years, Satan surely was present in his actions. Remember, he who is without sin, cast ye the first stone. Forgiveness is the answer. I am sure now that men who abuse women certainly are aware of the MeToo Movement. Joann ...

At last, circus has passed

At long last, the circus that passed for Supreme Court justice confirmation hearings is over. Our own local armchair political pundits on both sides have expressed their opinions. One recent letter writer expressed her concern over Kavanaugh's admission of excessive beer drinking as a high ...

Fake tolerance

Oh, the tolerant left. They just love LGBTQ people and persons of color… or do they? During the Kavanaugh hearings, when they needed an insult to put Lindsay Graham in his place, they decided to call him all manner of insinuations and innuendo. Then, when a famous black musician decided ...

Voted for changes

Our Republican Congressional Representatives, Tom Marino (12th district) and Glenn Thompson (15th district), proudly declare their “prolife” positions. However, this assertion is belied by their platforms and betrayed by their votes. If Marino and Thompson are “prolife,” why don’t ...

Gaslighting

The term “gaslighting” has entered into our vocabulary in the past few years. When I first heard the word, I had no clue as to its meaning. I had heard it mentioned in news reports often referencing stories coming out of the White House. So, it was not surprising to me when I looked up ...

Sore losers

Commenting on a letter Charles M. Reeder wrote in the Oct. 4 edition, it’s quite apparent that Mr. Reeder is trying his hand at the old Hillary and Obama trick of accusing the conservative Republicans of issues that are solely in the Democrat Socialist laps and that my friends is failure, ...

Not worthy of vote

Not long ago I had the privilege of serving the public as an aide to former congressman Chris Carney. One trait I admired about Carney was his courage to hold a town hall meeting every year in the fourteen counties he represented. Not so for our Rep. Tom Marino. For the past eight years about ...

The real danger

America's radical Democrats are more threatening to our republic than Antifa thugs who wear face masks and carry clubs to intimidate their rivals, for they can be prosecuted for criminal transgressions. Progressive Democrats who wear suits and encourage gullible miscreants to get in the face of ...

Who he is

read Mr. Marc Friedenberg's remarks in the Sun-Gazette Sept. 29. He stated at the end of the article, "I am proud to go everywhere and stand up for who I am". I will agree he has shown us who he is – a Socialist Democrat whose agenda will coincide with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. He is ...

Respect alive

I am writing in response to Mr. Garry L. Ritter’s letter Oct. 10 in which he voices concerns over what he deemed the “totally unacceptable” behavior of the Montoursville Area High School Choir singing the National Anthem at the Homecoming football game. As is clear from the picture ...

The deeper danger

The Kavanaugh confirmation hearings were instructive in many ways. But one point was especially vital: The question of presumed innocence. Democrat activists endlessly insisted that a presumption of innocence applies only to defendants in criminal trials. Since Kavanaugh wasn't on trial, he ...

A faulty healthcare argument

In a recent letter, Vivian Altman writes in opposition to single payer healthcare. She uses the traditional cost and quality of care arguments against it. Her quality of care argument uses other countries with socialized medicine' as a basis. She claims long wait times and substandard care. ...

Disturbing

On a visit earlier this summer I came across illustration on the Cornell University campus that demonstrate people who believe in man-made climate change are either insincere or foolish. First was a lawn that had obviously not been moved. On the lawn was a sign saying, “Tall grass small ...

Struggle not over

Now that Judge Kavanaugh has been confirmed to the Supreme Court, those who love America and its Constitution should not falsely believe that the struggle is over – just the opposite. On Nov. 6, the far left Socialist Democrats hope to win control of the House and Senate, so that they can ...

Overcoming the negativity

The negativity in our beautiful USA remains a huge waste of energy. We live in a democracy where our strength is in the ballot box. In our lifetime we will have many presidents. Some we'll be thankful to see go. Some will have the opposite convictions of our own. Some will have the same, and ...

A flawed premise on global warming

Water vapor makes up 95 percent of the greenhouse gases, but liberal government officials can't tax water vapor and can't tax the sun, the biggest contributor to warming or cooling. So, they pick carbon dioxide, which is incidentally tied to climate, but the human contribution to carbon ...

Rethink who represents us

I find it interesting to read letters praising Congressman Marino for his work in Washington. Perhaps these people do not recall, choose not to remember or do not live in low-level flood plain areas. A few years ago Congress passed the Biggert Waters Act, which effectively more than quadrupled ...

Not much left of Democratic Party

I just finished reading Charles Ardell's letter titled “Impeachment flu.” I couldn't agree more with him but for one exception. Charles stated and I quote: “The Trump Derangement Syndrome is destroying the Democratic Party.” This is where I disagree. The Trump Derangement Syndrome ...

Very sad

I personally feel it is a very sad time in our country to see women screaming like banshees at our federal government. Does the MeToo movement mean they only want to abort boys? What is so sad is this is all about abortion. How many innocent babies must be killed to satisfy this crazy group? ...

Faulty strategy

Regarding the Penn State-Ohio State football game, they blew a big lead twice. But when you have the best quarterback in the country running and throwing completions all over the field, there is no need for discussion on fourth down and five yards to go. Just give the ball to the best player on ...
