Liberals don’t get it that we’re all fed up

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionRe Jan. 25 letter, “Liberals can’t take Trump’s straight talk”: Kudos to Ray Weidman. He nailed it.CNN is the new Comedy Central. Don Lemon needs a reality check. I watched him once and could not stop laughing. Look at what the left said about President Trump: He’s mentally ill, physically ill, a racist, a tax evader,  he eats too much McDonald’s, on and on. It’s becoming quite humorous. Where’s the mention on these liberal networks about Apple giving $38 billion back to the United States from off-shore earnings? How about the $5 billion going to fund manufacturing in America? Nope, cannot mention that. Obama had the weakest economy in history. We all dodged a bullet that “Satan in a pantsuit” (Mr. Weidman’s words) lost. Liberals just don’t understand we, the people, are fed up.Michael P.

Letters to the Editor for Thursday, August 1

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionSpeaking out is an American traditionKudos to the House of Representatives for its passage of the resolution condemning the vile, hateful, racist tweets of the demagogue in the White House. Thanks especially to the four Republicans who defied the divider-in-chief and voted in favor of the resolution.Unfortunately my congresswoman, Elise Stefanik, did not have the courage to join them. It’s well established that the president is historically challenged. Those with even a rudimentary understanding of American history know that dissent and an unwillingness to accept the status quo is woven into the very fabric of the nation.Indeed, the country was founded on dissent and rebellion. Imagine a nation in which earlier generations decided to meekly accept things as they were.Would the strides made in civil rights have happened if members of the movement had heeded its critics and went back to Africa? Would women have gained the right to vote and achieved more equal treatment if there had been no suffrage of Women’s Liberation Movement and accepted the command that like children they should be seen and not heard? Could slavery have been abolished without the abolitionists? Earlier generations of activists have moved us closer to the ideals expressed in our founding documents.We are more free, more equal, and have made advances that promote the general welfare thanks to them and the sacrifices they made. We need to reject the charge that those who speak out at things they perceive are injustices are un-American.They are true patriots who walk in the footsteps of our forefathers.Bill McPhersonBallston SpaGrateful for those who saved his lifeOn June 29, I had a pool accident (fell in unexpectedly) and had to be saved. We are still not sure what happened, but my wife heard me yell for help and my neighbors (the Davidsons: Rose, Fred, Kathy, Matt and Freddie) next door came rushing over and pulled me out and called 911.My wife, who recently went through open heart surgery, was unable to help me at that time. I am thankful for my neighbors.As I’m told, the Rotterdam paramedics came quickly and the grandson of the Davidsons (Freddie), who has medical experience, helped put the tube in me so I could get my breath. The paramedics then rushed me to the ER. I would like to thank the neighbors, the paramedics, the ER, the ICU nurses and doctors at Ellis, and the nurses on the fourth-floor heart wing, all of whom took excellent care of me. If it wasn’t for all those people, I wouldn’t be here today. Thank you everyone.Nicholas P. August, Jr.SchenectadyClifton Park theater a great experienceOur region offers many, many wonderful choices for theater and musical entertainment.One such venue I highly recommend is the Not So Common Players at the Clifton Commons stage.It’s a beautiful outdoor experience under the stars, and it’s free.On July 27, we saw “Beauty and the Beast” with our grandchildren, and what a treat it was. We were thoroughly entertained. A great performance for all ages.Pat RourkeScotiaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Gov.
