Letters To Editor

Prayer for safety, patience

Dear Editor, The Warren Area Ministerial Association, an organized fellowship of pastors, priests, and lay leaders in Warren County, would like to publicly express its support of and appreciation for all the staff members, care providers, and administrative personnel of our local long-term ...

Was justice served?

Dear Editor, “Sometimes” the editor’s column is agreeable. The piece on Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the Times Observer (Sept. 22) reads more as an obligatory than a willful effort. Maybe save the space for subject matter the writer genuinely values. Don Hanna, Scandia

Readers Speak

An upside down world Dear Editor With President Kennedy, it was his being Catholic and the fear that the Pope would be running our country. Funny, that’s not a concern with Biden! Then, with Obama it was “death squads” that would decide who lives or dies in the Affordable Care Act, ...

What’s with the flags?

Dear Editor, I see guys driving around with big American flags, political flags and even Confederate flags flapping from the beds of their pickups. I wonder how many of these guys have actually served in the military? I would bet very few. I served in the military — five years in Vietnam ...

Beware the tyrants

Dear Editor, Twenty-first century tyrants all over the world are more powerful than those notables of antiquity and because those modern tyrants have the use of advanced technologies with which to communicate with and deceive a greater percentage of their people. Deceived people however are ...

‘Ugly’ attitudes in the signs Dear Editor, The purpose of advertising, be it for a product, a service, or political candidate, is to present your cause in the most favorable light. Political advertising has taken a new turn in this election cycle, and I can see that it does promote a ...

Readers Speak

Biden’s empty promises Dear Editor, I have been reading the editorial section of this newspaper daily for approximately three years. Because this is an election year for the president of the United States, my interest in what has been published here has been elevated as a result. What I ...

Overstating death figures

Dear Editor, Much has been written and more has been done about the current pandemic brought to us by the Chinese Communists. The facts as set out by the National Center for Health Statistics and available on every computer demonstrate that actual deaths from COVID-19 from Feb. 1 to Sept. 2 ...

Always adding up

Dear Editor, Donald J. Trump is a very wise and intelligent man. For instance, he disputes the professional advise of medical experts regarding COVID-19. He also has issues with renowned scientists regarding climate change which is melting glaciers at an alarming rate. He loves to call ...

Readers Speak

Risking our futures Dear Editor, I appreciated a recent letter that brought up the promise of President Trump ande the Republican National Committee to end this payroll tax, which is the funding stream for Social Security. I would like to highlight what this would mean to people in this ...

So much for ‘civil discussion’

Dear Editor, It is difficult to know how to respond to the commentary (Sept. 7), when the ranting, exaggerated, emotional claims by the author are scarcely able to be responded to with intelligent, well reasoned arguments. That is, the writer clearly prefers hysterical terms such as ...

Circling the issues

Dear Editor, So after reading the latest article about how safe a roundabout can make an area, I couldn’t help but remember that the Warren Times Observer has already stated when all of this hoopla began that there were only I think three accidents at that particular intersection in 10 ...

Readers Speak

How we are voting Dear Editor, We did not write this in its entirety, but we might as well have as it encapsulates my thinking very well, although I did edit and add a couple original points. We cannot credit the original author, but this was sent to us by a friend in Illinois. In less ...

God help us unite

Dear Editor, Having read a few hundred articles to the “Reader Speaks” over the last several years, it has come to my attention that our Grand Old Country is nearing a total collapse or about to enter into a civil war. We have seen our cities burning and nobody being held accountable. ...

Leading by fear

Dear Editor, With President John F. Kennedy, it was his being Catholic and the fear that the pope would be running our country. Funny, that’s not a concern with Joe Biden. With Barack Obama is was “death squads” that would decide who lives or dies in “The Affordable Care Act,” the ...

Nation shaped by 9/11

Dear Editor, This one’s personal about Sept. 11, 2001. My first memory is actually about one week before. Our after-dinner discussion was about how as Americans we live under this delusion that ...

Social Security in trouble

Dear Editor, The coronavirus has exposed an economy that is deeply flawed, structurally unsound, and in need of serious reform. The majority of the wealth created in the last decade has been seized by the affluent who have used this power to make sure this system works for them. When ...

Breaking a Commandment

Dear Editor, What does the future hold for a nation when those in high office and powerful positions do not practice the Ninth Commandment? When I was a boy, I noticed that none of the Commandments demanded that I never lie—that no Commandment specifically demanded that I speak only ...

Where’s the concern?

Dear Editor, Bruce Cockburn wrote a song, “If a tree falls in the forest, does anybody hear?” And it’s true today. In Genesis, God created the earth and said it was good. That means cutting down most of the trees in the Allegheny National Forest is a sneaky plan by the Forest ...

Warren not Biden country

Dear Editor, Ignorance is bliss. Worse, organized ignorance, is dangerous in current times. Why? Joe Biden for president. How? A tectonic faiure of public education dumbing down America. Scandalous decades of taxpayers throwing good money after bad — with no accoutability Biden — ...
