Don’t use military to fuel Trump’s ego

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionMore proof Trump doesn’t understand our military or our democracy: He could have been the military man he says he is. But he instead used his money (fake medical) not to. He played golf while others were killed, maimed and got PTSD. The military should not be used to feed his ego and bullying personality.Jeffery DareLathamMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Albany County warns of COVID increaselast_img

Follow children on sensible gun control

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion I have never been more inspired, heartened or impressed with the youth of our country than I am today as I participate in and watch, “March for Our Lives.” They have created a huge movement, one that won’t give up. United, side by side, in each other’s arms, Asian, Hispanic, African American, Caucasian, male and female. The speakers are all unbelievably confident, poised, logical, articulate, caring and passionate. As I watch these kids, I think this is the best of humanity.The government has abdicated its responsibility to protect life so there is the possibility to enjoy liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We, adults, have abdicated our responsibility to protect our children.It’s time to follow our children and create sensible gun control legislation. Please vote.Bernard MirlingSaratoga SpringsMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationSchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%last_img read more

Memorial should be welcomed in Nisky

first_imgRe April 3 letter, “Holocaust memorial should be welcomed”: I agree wholeheartedly with Claudia Fennicks.Regardless of fear mongering, lower property values, vandalism and so on, let’s not forget why the Holocaust memorial is being built —to remember the Holocaust and its millions of victims. Presently, a wave of anti-Semitism throughout our nation and college campuses grows unabated  — more reason why this Holocaust memorial should be built on its planned site.We have our 9/11 memorials, memorials to many other groups, people and causes. No longer shall we give into deniers, revisionists and haters. Sheila and Bob DiSarro, I wouldn’t mind this memorial by my house — I’d be honored. Further, for this memorial to be built on lands owned by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany is a huge step in the right direction. We know that to some degree, some leaders in the church looked the other way and were in many ways complicit in sending Jews to the ovens. The Holocaust is a reminder that will never leave the rest of us either — lest we forget.Gerald PlanteSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusSchenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcySchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%Motorcyclist injured in Thursday afternoon Schenectady crashSchenectady man dies following Cutler Street dirt bike crash Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more

Trump sons invite themselves to Iowa in dig at Democrats

first_imgUnder the slogan “Keep Iowa Great,” President Donald Trump’s two older sons invited themselves to the Midwestern state Monday just hours before the first test to see which Democrat would face their father in November elections.”We’re gonna beat them again,” said Eric Trump.Iowa caucus doors were due to open at 7:00 pm (0100 GMT Tuesday), with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in the lead as polls cast the 78-year-old standard-bearer for the party’s left wing as the favorite. He is followed by former vice president Joe Biden.”When I see the mainstream ideals of socialism and communism actually being pushed — I know we say this as a joke and everyone’s laughing, but it’s not a joke,” warned Don Jr.”While we’ve done a lot, there’s still a lot left to be done, and Donald Trump’s gonna do that,” he added.The rally, held just before voting for the Iowa caucus began, also featured President Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale. A group of Republican officials, including White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and commerce secretary Wilbur Ross, were also in attendance.Parscale predicted that Sanders would do well in Iowa. And like Don Jr., Parscale mocked Joe Biden’s performance in the polls after months of campaigning in the state.”We’re here in force to show the American people that this is a real movement. This president is serious about 2020,” said Parscale.The Republican caucus will also take place in Iowa Monday, but with significantly less suspense.Although two candidates are running against Trump — Joe Walsh and Bill Weld — they are unlikely to beat the incumbent, who has the official support of the Republican Party and high popularity among his voter fan base.Topics :last_img read more
