Trump et al

NEIL P. NELSEN Canton It seems to me that, at this juncture, the only possible explanation for Donald Trump’s bizarre and outrageous behavior is that he is mentally ill. It is harder to understand why the Congress, the branch of our government that is supposed to address situations like ...

Power perversion

MIKE KERSTETTER Watsontown Nebraska U.S. Sen. Ben Sasse, during the confirmation hearing for Judge Brett Kavanagh, gave a schoolhouse rock speech about the duties of the branches of government. He correctly pointed out that the power and responsibility to run the nation was given solely ...

The old switchboard method works better

SHIRLEY C. MYERS Mill Hall I want to congratulate The Express for their new/old method of answering incoming calls. The caller gets an actual person and not a mechanical voice answering, telling the caller to press one for (editor) or press two for (circulation) etc. The old switchboard ...

Wealth and the worker

HENRY HOPPER Williamsport How does it happen that the wealthiest man in the history of the world, Jeff Bezos, is also one of the largest welfare recipients in America? His company, Amazon, makes huge profits by paying their employees wages that are so inadequate that many of them need ...

Deniers

TED MAHAFFEY Montoursville The theory of macro-evolution is easily disproven. If life could not have originated from non-living matter, the basis of macro-evolution, then the entire theory is falsified. There is no naturalistic mechanism for life to originate from non-living matter. ...

‘Straw Men’

TOM MCCAREY Berwyn The straw men of “speeding crisis” and “work zone crisis” are the bases for the push to get speed cameras in Pennsylvania. There is neither a speeding crisis nor a work zone crisis. PennDOT’s own study shows that Pennsylvania’s roads are the safest they ...

Thank you, first responders and families of 911

IDA M. TEMPLE Mansfield I dedicate and thank the first responders who survived the terrorist attacks on our nation on Sept. 11, 2001. They did not hesitate to run toward danger to rescue and save those who were in harm’s way. To the families who lost a loved one that rushed to the Twin ...

We will not forget

Troy Allen Houston Sheridan, Wyo. The war on terror has lasted a long time, I will try to tell you why in this rhyme. On 9-11 terrorist came to America to strike a blow, they wanted to kill people they didn’t even know. They flew planes into the Twin Towers, the terror ...

Wrong assumption

THOMAS D. MCCAFFREY Hollidaysburg I am writing in response to the letter to the editor submitted by Wendy Geesey entitled, “Elect those who will help protect you.” Aside from the fact that the writer offers no evidence that Democrats support putting anyone in harm’s way, she appears ...

Thank you

AMY ERSHLER Loganton As reported in The Express in late July of this year, the Clinton County commissioners proposed imposing a $5 fee on all motorized vehicles registered in the county. The fee was to be used for transportation improvement purposes. However, after listening to the ...

Living in bad conditions

COURTNEY GRIMES Lock Haven With regard to the Clinton County Tax Sale article on Aug. 31 edition of The Express and the old “Lawyer’s Row” up for sale due to back taxes, at first I was relieved, having lived there for one year and knowing first-hand how poor the living conditions ...

Think

PAULETTE JO FREDERICK Hollidaysburg Most regretfully, “Amirreeka” is chock full of self-righteous people, blindly misinterpreting our Constitution, while sacrilegiously wearing Christ’s cross around their necks. Not all, but many are poorly educated, purely bamboozled, puritanically ...

Disagreement … why?

BILL TEUFEL Hollidaysburg There is a deep divide in our nation, with many disagreeing with the current administration’s agenda. But is there true disagreement? The vast majority of Americans want a good job, lower taxes, a safe America, global respect, respect for our military, ...

‘Medicare for all’ is Un-American

BRYCE DUNIO Altoona Why does health care favor big corporations and the excessively rich more than the individual and their community? This question is the spearhead of the Democratic Socialists movement, seemingly being compassionate and thoughtful over greedy and exploitative. But ...

Optimism abounds

GEORGE DETHLEFSEN Canonsburg President Donald Trump’s tax cuts are working - in more ways than one. Just take a look at the energy industry. Because of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, more than 100 electric, gas, and water utility providers have slashed their rates, rewarding customers ...

Elect those who will help protect you

WENDY GEESEY Altoona As parents, our most precious asset is our children. To think that I would lose a daughter to a tragedy is awful; to lose her to a criminal evil deed would be even worse. Yet, to know that this could have been completely avoided would move me to unspeakable ...

Truth exposed

MARLIN D. LILLEY JR. Cogan Station If you’ve watched the confirmation hearing of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the U.s. Supreme Court, it was clear by the questioning of the judge by California U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein that one of the top priorities of the left is to gut the 2nd ...

McCarthyism

GEORGE LOCKETT Morris After just reading the Aug. 25 letter to the editor, “McCarthy’s apprentice’’ by David Bross, I couldn’t help but wonder, does any one else reading these letters see just how twisted liberals like David Bross are to actually accuse our great President Trump ...
