Letters to the editor

Socialism is no real threat

NICK BRISINI Glen Campbell This is in response to a recent opinion column, “Socialism will tank economy,” by columnist Betsy McCaughey. McCaughey’s column was filled with Trumpism, irrationalism and outright lies. She claimed that many Democrats view capitalism in a negative ...

No more free advertising for the president

ANGEL de LEON Lake Worth, Fla. For more than three years we have seen how the media - press, radio, television, etc. - has been giving free publicity to the candidate and now president, repeating his name and surname constantly. The free advertising provided during the election campaign ...

Applause, Applause!

Each Saturday, The Express community newspaper highlights people, groups and activities our readers deem worthy of applause. From the bottom of my heart I would like to THANK the Wayne Township Fire Co., Castanea Fire Co. and the Woolrich Fire Co. that worked tirelessly searching and rescuing ...

Actions speak louder than words

HELEN SHEEHY Tyrone Republicans know that the American’s top concern is access to health care and that a key worry is protection for persons with pre-existing conditions. Obamacare is the cornerstone of those protections, prohibiting insurance companies from denying coverage or ...

In the beginning

PAUL RINKER Montoursville In recent times, I often hear the idea that science has proven that God does not exist. I’m sure this would come as a surprise to the 60 PERCENT of scientists who are agnostic or theistic. Even some of those who are atheists would never be so bold as to claim that ...

Hate, fear and lies

JOHN YOUNG Williamsport The 2020 presidential election should be a real doozy. So far as I’m concerned, the Trump campaign playbook in this midterm election was focused on hate, fear, and lies. This ad was even canceled by Fox News and Fox Business. The Trump 2020 campaign will be ...

Illegals

JOHN HALLER Williamsport I am really sick of reading letters to the editor defending illegal immigration as though Democrats really care about the people themselves. I say many know very well why they are in favor of them coming here. I can show any of you videos of Bill Clinton, ...

Blame the user, not the pills

EUGENE MOORE McElhattan Well, it has finally happened. Some rich character is suing their doctor because someone famous died due to drugs. Well, here is some food for thought. Do any of your medications yell for you to take them? They sit in your house in a closed container and say ...

Save the Constitution

JASON RUNK Altoona Donald Trump has said he wants to change the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution by executive order. That should terrify any citizen who believes in the sanctity and safety of our Constitution. We must never allow ANY President to perform such a gross ...

Kavanaugh confirmation in review

MILTON COLE State College Let’s review the contentious confirmation process of Brett Kavanaugh. Recall Donald Trump’s promise in the October 2016 presidential debate, “I am putting pro-life justices on the court,” meaning that the Roe vs. Wade 1973 precedent decision legalizing ...

The Democratic House

KEN DAUBER Cogan Station Thank God for elections. The dog still has rabies, but at least now he is in a cage.

Never before have we been more in need of prayer

ALMA GRIFFITH Lewistown Never before in history, I believe, have we stood in greater need of prayer. Will we be people of prayer for such a time like this? “Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing.” Timothy 2:8-15.

On legal immigration, and ‘who’s money is it?’

ROMUALD ANDRAKA Cogan Station Let’s see. Large group of people intending to force their way into a country that is not theirs with the intent to remain there once in (i.e to occupy). That sounds pretty close to the definition of invasion. We have a legal process for immigration, and as a ...

Armed citizens

WILLIAM EMICK Barbours Pittsburgh’s gun-controlling Democratic mayor, Bill Peduto, said, “armed guards in synagogues, mosques, and churches are not the answer after 11 Jews were murdered and 6 wounded including four police officers at the “gun free” Tree of Life Synagogue in ...

Thanks, Rep. Hanna, for Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway

JIM HIRONIMUS White Hall I want to personally say, “Thank you,” to state Rep. Mike Hanna Sr. for presenting a bill to proclaim Route 192 in Centre County “The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway of Central Pennsylvania.” Veterans Day is approaching. Now is the time for everyone ...

Parties must work together to ‘calm storm’

LAYNE B. THIELE Altoona We are under attack in a way my father, a World War II veteran, would not have understood. He was a very intelligent man and would be so sad to see our country so divided and angry. He was no fool and would have believed the U.S. Intelligence agencies’ charge ...

Nope, not shocked at all

RYAN A. WORKMAN Williamsport I am no longer shocked at what Tim Manello writes in his innumerable, comical letters to the editor. I am no longer shocked that he is astounded by President Trump doing exactly what candidate Trump promised. However, there is one thing I don’t believe I will ...

Caravan

JAY D. MYERS Hughesville The caravan is coming! The caravan is coming!!! Just saw on FOX news that thousands people trying to come to the United States seeking asylum from gang violence in Central American are carrying diseases such as leprosy, T.B., and small pox. Ever since I saw ...
