Letters To Editor

Hospice grateful for heart

Dear Editor, Many things have changed for all of us since March. Hospice of Warren County understands the devotion of faithful followers during these trying times. Because our special recognition events were put on hold this year, we would like to take this alternative way to recognize all ...

Threat to democracy

Dear Editor, I see that a local resident again has been given a large space for commentary in your paper, and that again he has spewed vitriolic, distorted information through his public platform, much of which I responded to in an earlier letter. It would be comical were such things not ...

Bad omen for country

Dear Editor: Don’t give up the ship, keep the faith. Most worry is unfounded as long as one stays in motion — having a plan. First of all mistrust the obvious, take a hard look at the least likely and, if losing, do so on your own terms. Application: stolen, U.S. Presidential 2020 ...

Enemies not here at home

Dear Editor, There’s a saying in German: where two are fighting, a third party profits. Presently in the United States Democrats and Republicans are constantly fighting, seeking to demonize the other side for their own advantage. Who is winning? Every enemy of the United States. ...

Vote probe a ‘disgrace’

Dear Editor: Republican State Rep. Kathy Rapp of Warren is on the wrong side of history, and more importantly on the wrong side of democracy in supporting ongoing “investigations” into Pennsylvania’s recent election. In doing so, she and her extreme right-wing political colleagues ...

Time to unite, heal

Dear Editor, Well, there you have it ladies and gentlemen. Like it or not, the fat lady has sung. Finally! The people have spoken. Maybe now, we can get over this nightmare that has wracked our nation for the last four years. It’s time to rebuild, reunite and heal our country, our souls, ...

A distorted image

Dear Editor, It is what it is . . . until it isn’t . . . DAFFY. Lying, Cheating, Stealing, Godless, Gutless, Gritless, Clueless, Shiftless, Chauvinist . . . Racist, Sexist, Fascist . . . Twisted Twittering Twit . . . and Ranting, Raving, Lunatic. Silence Gives Consent. Tony ...

Votes an edict on virus

Dear Editor, COVID has affected so much of our lives. One thing was being able to vote by mail. This did two things. It increased the numbers of people who voted and brought something to our attention that most of us never thought about. The vast number of Americans who selflessly ...

Strange interpretations

It seems that a recent writer took umbrage that his “facts” are called into question ... and well they should have been. His original letter stated that only 6% of reported covid deaths were actually due to covid according the the CDC website, and claims that ‘the media’ has inflated ...

Signs are past time

Dear Editor, It is time to take down those terrible political signs. I do believe that after election day, you can be fined for having them. Get rid of them. The are nothing but eyesores and reminders that President Trump did lose the election. Julie Brown, Warren

Allegations are ‘baseless’

Dear Editor, The Editorial Page cartoon in the Times Observer (Nov. 7) was an insult to all poll workers. Why would you choose to exacerbate the already toxic climate of fear and misunderstanding at this most crucial time for our community and nation? I spent 10 hours sorting and analyzing ...

Truth has ‘prevailed’

Dear Editor, The free press does not constitute fake news. Neither does our system of voting create fraud. The will of our people is in no way a conspiracy aganist whom we vote for. Lies do not equate with truth. Truth prevailed. Finally! M.J. Shanshala, Warren

Policies are the issue

Dear Editor, As Vice President Mike Pence said to Kamala Harris, “You are entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts.” Appearing on the editorial page (Oct. 24), an article written by a regular contributor to the “Readers Speak” was really an opinion piece. Because it ...

Consider the options

Dear Editor, A vote for Joe Biden, or l should say a vote for Kamala Harris, more than likely will mean the following: Pack the Supreme Court, no more good or moral decisions again. Pack the Senate with new States of D.C. and Puerto Rico. Eliminate the electoral college. That would mean ...

Who I’m voting for

Dear Editor, I can hold my silence no longer. To the party that preaches bringing Americans together, hate seems to be your byword. I am proud to be a deplorable. 1. I want a president who is not afraid to show his face and to tell us what he plans to do. I want a president who is willing ...

The truth and lies

Dear Editor, It seems to be a popular thing to do nowadays by our president, the press, news channels, politicians, talking heads on TV, etc. Our president alone as of five weeks ago is said to be responsible for 21,000 lies. At the rate he lies, I’m sure you could add at least another ...

The way to vote

Dear Editor, The upcoming election is leading us to two ways this country is going to go. The first way is vote for Donald J. Trump and remain a citizen with all the rights contained in “The Bill of Rights.” The second is to vote for Biden and get the first female president — acting ...

Drawing the line

Dear Editor, Socialism was accepted in the United States with the election of FDR in the late 1930s because of people dying alone and abandoned due to the Great Depression. Since then we have added several socialist programs that provide protection for our elderly, mentally and physically ...

A vote against abortion

Dear Editor, Our Declaration of Independence states our Creator endowed us with unalienable rights, including “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” With the Supreme Court’s 1973 decisions of Roe versus Wade and Doe versus Bolton, abortion became a significant cause for the loss ...

Appetite for democracy

When did Americans, at voting time, become spoiled children, balking in front of a plate of spinach? “But I don’t like it!” Childish tastebuds aside, (and I was one of the fussiest eaters) the apostle Paul said, we are laborers together with God ... I Corin 3:9. In America, that labor ...
