Letters To Editor

Can’t ‘fight’ city hall

Dear Editor, Reading the WTO’s article on safe winter travel and sidewalk shoveling within City environs brings me to the differences in how this issue is handled in the Borough of Clarendon. When attending a Clarendon Borough meeting to inquire about enforcing snow shoveling ...

Hostilities with none

Dear Editor, “A decent respect for the opinions of mankind” and the “Laws of Nature’s God” compels an alternate view to the 1-9 Our Opinion piece, which tried to justify the murder of high Iraqi and Iranian officials. Abu Mahdi al Muhandis, deputy commander of the Iraqi Popular ...

Cheating

Dear Editor, This letter is brief and to the point. When there is “cheating” in professional sports, the investigation and punishment is immediate.Witness current events. When there is an investigation and undisputed evidence of “cheating” in the oval office, the punishment — if ...

A sorry mess, indeed

Dear Editor, In the 1/10/20 editorial entitled “This Sorry Mess” which focuses on the ongoing impeachment process, I found the following statement quite stunning: “Without evidence, Trump committed unconstitutional acts, majority Democrats in the House of Representatives impeached ...

Loving solidarity

Dear Editor, I’m writing in response to your Thursday, December 26 editorial column by Cal Thomas, “Socialism’s Cyclical Appeal,” in which he attempts to patronize the public with simplistic, 60-year-old Milton Friedman talking points, perpetuating the myth of free markets and the ...

Beaty trees

Dear Editor, It has come to our attention (and Mark confirmed at Beaty today) 12-27-19, after a former Beaty student called, that the cutting of many of the Famous and Historical trees and white pines planted by Beaty Ecology Club students in the 1980s and 1990s took place. First of all, ...

School phone policy

Dear Editor, This is the first time I have ever known the school district to set a policy for only 1 school in the district. Any regulations that are made should apply to all of the schools in the district. I am referring to the banning of cell phones and other electronic devices on ...

Political theater

Dear Editor, Days of Democrats sobbing with the thoughts of the constitution being violated and the founding fathers rolling over in their graves as one after another the Dems paraded immigrant stories before the TV audience have me reaching for my small collection of books on the subject ...

‘Show me the beef’

Dear Editor, I have been asking what evidence there is of any wrongdoing by President Trump. All that has been offered as proof so far are accusations, hearsay, innuendo, personal opinions, and outright lies. But the factual evidence or the real truth of the, who, what, where, when and why ...

It’s cold outside

Dear Editor, Once again, cold winter weather is upon us and, once again, people choose to let their pets outside to manage the best they can on their own. Today, as we arrived home, a beautiful male cat jumped into our car when we opened our car door. He was very cold and very afraid. ...

Operation Christmas Child

Dear Editor, Once again, the trailers have left Pleasant Community Church loaded with shoebox gifts of love headed to needy children around the world. 8,030 shoeboxes filled with school supplies, hygiene items, shirts and shoes, toys, and stuffed animals left Warren on November 26th. There ...

Global warming

Dear Editor, OK, finally, most all Americans can now agree that we are experiencing “Global Warming” and it’s not a “Chinese Hox!” If you still have any doubts, just look at what’s happening in Venice, Italy. So now the argument has morphed into two camps. One I call the ...

Slanderous accusations

Dear Editor, After mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, a prominent bishop of a major denomination called for an end to “white supremacy and xenophobia” which is “fueling a culture of violence.” With a fellow bishop, he condemned President Trump’s “disparaging comment about an ...

More side-stepping

Dear Editor, The never Trumpers swallow every slight allegation and out-and-out lie about our president much as an anaconda devours a pig — no discerning here but only delight at gross, tasty morsels for which they hunger and search. A poll heard on FLN found that 90 percent of Democrats ...

‘Not stable, not a genius’

Dear Editor, Donald Trump is no genius. He peddled fear and hate, then took Russian help. A con-man doesn’t have to be smart, just devious. Trump has all the devious intentions any man could ever have. Plain and simple corruption plus an abundant supply of arrogance. He is a ...

Hearings

Dear Editor, The House impeachment hearings, in particular, the testimony of Professors Feldman, Karlan and Gerhardt, made it clear that Donald J. Trump committed several crimes that are impeachable and deserve being removed from office. That, of course, will not happen because a majority ...

Stereotypes

Editor, In the Monday, December 2nd edition, the political cartoon featured on page four was not only in bad taste, but projects an unfortunate stereotype that is manifesting in today’s society. In this cartoon, we see a fat, white, Trump-supporting, gun toating person surrounded by two ...

In response to ‘Our Opinion’

Dear Editor: I was pleased to see that Friday’s “Our Opinion” addressed the statements, made by Pope Francis, during his visit to Japan, on the nuclear weapons threat we all live under. My take away on his comments is different than yours however. You brush him off as a naive ...

Autism, for the record

Dear Editor, Autism is not a mental disorder. The National Institutes of Health defines it as follows: “Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder that affects communication and behavior.” A developmental disorder is not a mental disorder and a mental disorder is not a ...

Zionest Cal Thomas

Dear Editor, The Warren Times Observer carried an article by Fundamentalist Christian Zionist Cal Thomas on Friday in which he once again put forth the tired, thoroughly debunked argument that the Jewish people have some kind of divine right to land in the Middle East. Zionism is part of ...
