Come together

When Obama was president, those on the right lamented his inordinate use of power and control. Now that Trump is president, the left is lamenting his inordinate use of power and control. Presidential elections matter because they give the officeholder too much power and control because ...

Unlikely to provide relief

The proposal by James Orr in his Jan. 21 letter to cut the number of Pennsylvania state legislators is unlikely to provide any long-term relief to taxpayers, and would instead undermine legislator accountability. Programmed expenses for our state legislators will continue to increase, absent ...

March for Life

“We are the Pro-Life Generation!” This chant echoed across the base of the Washington Monument and across Constitution Avenue to the White House as I embarked on my first March for Life nine days ago. The Associated Press was right when they characterized the march as a triumphant rally ...

Friend or foe

We are referring to the guy who has “occupied” the White House for the last eight years, President Obama. First, we should make a comparison of him with some previous presidents. Abraham Lincoln said, “The nation is worth fighting for, to secure such an inestimable jewel.” President ...

Obamagone

Seventy-six days after Donald Trump was elected Anarchrats were on the verge of a new civil war. With the help of the protected ones in the news media they are stirring the smelly pot of lies that will get us there and give them the news they would like to report! Since it appeared that Trump ...

About the march

Over half a million people marched in Washington on January 21 in support of the real values that make America great: Freedom of speech, religion and the press, equal rights for women and minorities, and basic honesty and decency in government. On the same day more than a million Americans took ...

The real history

This is in response to the letter titled “Get Over It” which contained several inaccurate statements. In the letter the author states "Your side likes to bring up the quote from President Obama where he stated that ‘elections have consequences’. He said that after losing control of ...

A majority?

Sometimes a majority just means all of the fools are on the same side! And so it is with the fools that advocate the religion of man made climate change! I say religion, because true science encourages skeptics and deniers. True science promotes those to ask questions, and to never stop ...

Special event

I attended a free event called, “Make America Pray Again,” hosted by the Social Conservatives of Pennsylvania. Our country has been under attack from  external issues like terrorism, police and school shootings, a drug epidemic, the deterioration of the family, abortion etc. America has ...

Angry feelings

Anger is an ordinary emotion. When we hear the phrase, “Don’t call down the wrath of God,” we realize that yes, God does get angry at any one of us when we turn away from him. He knows why we have done so. If any one continues disregarding God and has that determination to life defiantly ...

Soon it will end

To God be the glory that 44 years of abortion on demand will soon end. With the election of pro-life president Donald Trump, we believe he will do all in his power to overturn Roe v. Wade, as well as cut off all funding to Planned Parenthood and other abortion mills, which were reclassified by ...

Listen to us

President Donald J. Trump will not have a disastrous effect on our country. He will not crush our spirits, ruin our future, or divide our communities. We do not say this because he is a good man, with strong morals. He is not. We do not say this because he has surrounded himself with ...

Worthy march

I read and heard there was going to be a protest march by women after the inauguration of Donald Trump. I would like to apologize to this very powerful grassroots organization. I should have gone and supported your march. After watching from home what was happening I feel hopeful and energized ...

Our ‘feel good’ society

After eight years of competence in the White House, America has had enough. The country has suffered through poor people being insured. The work force has suffered through 96 straight months of job growth. It was a terrible slap at bush when President Obama’s intelligence services hunted ...

Trump

I voted for Donald Trump because I thought he was the lesser of two evils, but he’s like all politicians, he lies to cover up other lies. Trump says they saved all these jobs by keeping the air conditioner company, General Motors division and Chevrolet in this country instead of moving them ...

Seed advice

I am writing to you concerning a TV show I saw  Jan. 14. There is a national forest in Oregon where a lot of pine trees are dying from disease and climate change. The forestry service is collecting pine cones to get the seed from them to replant trees. The seeds are taken to a place to be ...

Wrong direction

I am truly committed to the belief that all Americans should be told the truth. We as Americans believe that in a free society, it is the job of the press to be the watchman of our government. It then falls upon the people, being fully informed, to decide what actions they must take to preserve ...

Scare tactics

Mr. Carlucci's scare tactics completely ignore the basis of the property tax bill - fairness. When are we going to quit resting the responsibility of school taxes on the home owner alone? Everyone would share in the responsibility with this bill. Sales tax would go from 6 cents on the dollar ...

Evolution questions

According to your article on the age of the moon, the moon is 4.51 billion years old. Uranium-lead dating or radiometric dating, as it is also known, is an unscientific measuring method. Evolutionary scientists (evolution is a religion, not a science) are only guessing at the age of the moon ...

Regarding march

Participating in the Women's March on Washington recently was an honor for my wife and me. We have been close to despair from the vitriolic presidential campaign and the direction in which the United States seems to be heading. Being among several hundred thousand people who are at least as ...
