Letters To Editor

‘We can’t afford socialism’

Dear Editor, Neither Democrats nor Republicans can afford the socialism we already have. Adding more socialist spending is absurd. The National Debt (ND) is $23 trillion. This year: spending – revenue = $1 trillion added to the national debt. Spending must be cut not increased. In our ...

An observation

Dear Editor, Although I’m not a resident of the City of Warren I, like many other non-residents, contribute to the economy of Warren on a daily basis. Why is it imperative to have a Round-About at the intersection of Market Street and Pennsylvania Avenue West? A state of the art ...

‘Under your radar’

Dear Editor, This letter is not for the 45% of the American people who have made up their minds that our current President and his toe-sucking Administration is off the rails. Nor is it designed for those 45% of the American people who see this same President and his Administration as ...

Finding common ground

Dear Editor, There is a poison running wild in Washington and I don’t mean Trump. I’m referring to those who are called “Conservatives” and “Liberals.” Watching the impeachment hearings/trial and the Democratic debates have shown me that Barnum and Bailey are no longer the ...

‘The Swamp’

Dear Editor, Donald J. Trump stated emphatically that he alone was going to “drain the swamp” in Washington, DC. That “swamp” will soon engulf the entire White House, and significant parts of Congress and the Senate. Now the Attorney General is stuck in the mud. The “alligators ...

Scarnati

Dear Editor, I am miffed! It is more than inconsiderate of the election process that President Pro Tem Joe Scarnati announced 6 days before the final filing date of Tuesday, Feb. 18th, 2020, that he is leaving the PA Senate and not seeking reelection! The press release on his official ...

‘Slide Into Autocracy’

Dear Editor, What do you get when the President of a democratic nation seizes control of that nation’s once independent Justice Department (with the help of an Attorney General eager to do his bidding) in order to go after and retaliate against his perceived political opponents, ...

Compliments to the DNC

Dear Editor, Thanks to the chaos and division created by Barry the Great since he won office promising to fundamentally change the USA , anything and everything is possibly happening. I would like to praise the left for doing the unbelievable in a Democratic Republic. They have a true ...

Disgusted Veteran

Dear Editor, As a voter and veteran I was appalled when Pelosi ripped up the State of the Union speech along with all the other Democrats who sat through the speech like pouting children. What a slap in the face for all the people honored during the speech. Three of those families honored ...

‘Abuse of power’

Dear Editor, This is “abuse of power.” When Joe Biden was vice-president, he threatened then Ukrainian President Poroshenko. He told him the Obama administration would withhold one billion dollars of loan guarantees unless Poroshenko fired prosecutor General Viktor Shokin. Shokin ...

Impeachment process

Dear Editor, The Republicans complain that the House did not do their diligence in pursuing witnesses and subpoenas during the impeachment, despite the fact that it would have drawn the process out thru mid-summer. They then proceeded to do the same thing in the Senate! The function of ...

Trump

Dear Editor, The line of “Bohunks” for the Democrat party left a lot to be desired for the Democrat voters. The fiasco in Iowa proves it. Still trying to guess out Bernie Sanders. Even his followers are on to it. Sanders, Warren and Biden all know to spend money. Together they want ...

‘Though much is taken, much abides’

Dear Editor: Our country is currently divided on many issues including local control vs. central planning, nationalism vs. globalism, free market capitalism vs. socialism, morality vs. moral relativism, shared values vs. diversity, limited immigration vs. open borders, originalism vs. ...

‘Integrity’

Dear Editor, It’s not only vividly evident, but outrageously disturbing that the impeachment trial of Donald John Trump by the Senate was not an impartial trial, and equally pernicious. Without relevant documents and key witnesses how, may I ask, can any person decide whether or not an ...

How to avoid broken elections

Dear Editor, The national elections started yesterday with the chaotic collapse of the Democratic caucus in Iowa, due to a software failure. As of this writing, Iowa has no results whatsoever to declare. Ironically (and predictably) the problem is due to a desire to get tallies as quickly ...

If you can keep it

Dear Editor, This was, as you likely know, part of Benjamin Franklin’s response when he was asked “What kind of a government do we have?” at the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, at which point he answered “A Republic, if you can keep it.” Oh, well. It was sure ...

Roundabout

Dear Editor, Finally, common sense has returned to our City Council! Thank you to Christian Zavinski, John Wortman and, of course, Paul Giannini for bringing up revisiting the inane idea of the roundabout. Quite honestly, I was surprised when it was approved last year because of all the ...

Round and round we go

Dear editor, One of my favorite things about living in Warren is the ability to travel where I need to go without having to worry about what traffic is going to be like. In my opinion, it’s what aggravates people most about the traffic situation at Penn & Liberty on weekday ...

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 ...
