‘Lights blinking red’

On Tuesday, July 17, Republican Trump-appointed Dan Coats, Director of National Intelligence warned: "The digital system that serves this country is under attack. The warning lights are blinking red again." He compared the situation to the time just before 9/11. At risk are: All levels of ...

Understanding Trump

I just read another in a long line of letters from a confused soul who can’t understand why those stupid and hypocritical Evangelical Christians support the odious and evil Donald Trump when they could have had the vivacious and virtuous Hillary Clinton. You would have to think some of ...

Resist?

On Nov. 9, 2016, Nancy Pelosi told a reporter for the Washington Post that she called Donald Trump and congratulated him on winning the election for President of the United States of America and told him she would "pray for his success". "The peaceful transfer of power is the cornerstone ...

A candidate for education

This past year, as a senior in high school, I toured Pennsylvania colleges and universities. On those tours, I learned that the price of a higher education is prohibitive for far too many students, and acts as a barrier that prevents upward mobility. Nearly 40 million Americans are in ...

Ever?

Are we ever going to have another legitimate president of the United States? Bill Clinton only became president because of a three-way race with Ross Perot taking votes from George H.W. Bush. Next George W. Bush only became president because a partisan Supreme Court ruling on the Florida ...

There’s only one

In reference to Jeremy Benthan’s letter on July 17, “Misconception”, God has everything to do with it. Without God the world would be a lot more crazy. Without God we have nothing. How do you expect to get to heaven? God bless you, Jeremy. Carol Logue Montoursville

Lacking a compass

More letters saying the left has a double standard when it comes to criticizing President Trump. They say the proof is the Clintons. Both of the Clintons were repeatedly investigated with President Clinton being impeached. The people on the right screaming this as a defense of President ...

The Zombie Apocalypse

Seeing the Liberal/Socialist demonstration in Williamsport against President Trump looked a whole lot like the "Zombie Apocalypse". Marlin D. Lilley Jr. Cogan Station Submitted by Virtual Newsroom

Stand for the Anthem

Following up on Charles Reeder’s letter on July 10th, yes, the president bad-mouthed the NFL and rightfully so. These rich millionaire players can’t take 2 minutes out of their precious time and stand to show respect. They’re being paid millions to play a game. Our military are also ...

Liberal talk

“The strength of a nation derives from the integrity of home.” ~ Confucius. Why aren’t you liberals talking about and doing something about welfare, and the mothers who have more babies for more welfare, and the men who desert these mothers and children. I guess you feel better in ...

Spinmaster

Tim Mannello had a letter in July 8th. He crucified Rep. Maxine Walters and, in the end of course, it’s always the same. It was Donald Trump’s fault. He could sell snow to the Eskimos. Charles Ardell South Williamsport

Trump’s derangement

It appears that President Trump aced his performance review with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. The U.S. is now a semi-autonomous vassal state of the Russian Federation. One can only wonder how many sets of keys to Washington, D.C., Trump took with him to the meeting. To be fair, the president ...

Independent vote

I really try to refrain from writing letters to the editor, but there are times when I just can’t control myself. This has been one of those times after watching parts of the nine-hour congressional hearing with FBI agent Peter Strzok. I have watched many hearings from Watergate to the ...

Results

Redistricting is critically needed so congressional districts are not set up to favor one political party or another called gerrymandering. Votes are manipulated to allow one party to win an election, that shouldn’t have. I wrote a letter regarding a solution to this problem. It described a ...

Amused

As a retired federal lawman, I was amused by your recent Op Ed column, "A Pennsylvania Paradox" by G. Terry Madonna and Michael L. Young. The writers were dismayed that there were not additional "Common Sense" gun control laws passed in Pennsylvania this year. I read the entire article and ...

Just the facts

I have had the opportunity to sit on panels which were formed to develop a protocol designed to solve a particular problem. Unfortunately, researching the roots of an alleged problem was not discussed. It was assumed that the problem existed because higher-ups formed the panel to solve the ...

Switching allegiance

I'm on Social Security and Medicare. I worked until I was 74 until my knees and back couldn't take it anymore. My Social Security doesn't keep up with the rising food prices and everything else that keeps getting more expensive. But what's really killing us are the drug prices. Every other ...

The big picture

The media meltdown and leftist outrage over the Helsinki summit can be understood in one point – President Trump is a "big picture" guy. Russia has a GDP smaller than Texas, a population and military a fraction the size of the US, and their entire economy is based on oil exports (which ...

The real problem

I have been following discussion of levee recertification and related costs with interest. I have some understanding of the costs involved as well as the economic consequences that will occur if this levee is not recertified now and in subsequent years. Although most people are unaware of the ...

A problem solver

What a miracle that a group of divers were able to reunite 12 children and their parents in Thailand after being trapped by high water in a cave. Then it dawned on me the possibility to solve one of our nation's problems. Why not take all the children of people seeking asylum in the U.S. that ...
