Who really should have to leave U.S.?

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionRe Nov. 26 letter, “Those who disrespect military should leave”: Vincent Belardo dictated those who disrespect the military should leave our country.Well, that puts Trump at the top of the list to leave. He disrespected John McCain by saying he was “not a hero because he was caught.” This is the presidential candidate you said you voted for. Trump also dodged the draft four to five times. He is definitely not a hero, nor did he show respect for our flag or our country back then.Colin Kaepernick kneels because of facts showing police injustice, inequality and blatant killing of minorities. Your statement that 90 percent or more of minorities had it coming came from where, racist right-wing Fox News? Many white and black folks are kneeling for justice. I am sure you have no idea a white, retired Army Special Forces veteran named Nate Boyer convinced Kaepernick to kneel back in 2016 instead of sitting because it showed more respect for our flag and what Nate Boyer and you fought for. Look that up at military.com: “Kaepernick meets with veteran.”Diane Sanders HombachSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady’s Lucas Rodriguez forging his own path in dance, theater, musicSchenectady department heads: Budget cutbacks would further stress already-stretched departmentsAnderson starts, but Dodgers finish off NLCS winSchenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcySchenectady police reform sessions pivot to onlinelast_img read more

Many reasons not to admire Trump

first_imgThe April 15 letter, “Efforts to impeach Trump based on lies,” stated that we don’t recognize all of Donald Trump’s accomplishments. This is my assessment: I don’t like his tone of voice, his vocabulary or the words he uses, and he’s immoral and prejudiced.I hate to say this, but I’m ashamed of him. My moral values are different than his.CONCETTA CANNIZZARONiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Niskayuna girls’ cross country wins over BethlehemEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the census Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img

Letters to the Editor for Wednesday, June 26

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionDriver’s license bill promotes illegalityIt seems that when the cats (Republicans) are away, the mice (children) will play.Every radical bill was sailing through the Legislature because there’s no longer the Republican Senate to act as a buffer. Stop bashing or run for office yourselfI’m constantly viewing late night talk show hosts and various media anchors who consistently bash our U.S. president.If the bashers had any courage or stand behind their comments then they should run for office, but no they won’t.It’s easy to bash someone that you have no idea of their career duties.They are the weak link.Anthony MazzoneGlenvilleMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s press conference for Sunday, Oct. 18EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homes Like I’ve said before, people who live in glass houses should not throw stones. Rep. Paul Tonko, you are a bad American citizen and congressman. You help the immigrants who are in this country illegally, but you don’t help the 100 percent disabled veterans. You Democratic liberals spend millions of our tax dollars on this stupid Russian election interference.Why didn’t you liberals investigate the uranium deal made while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, and when our men were killed in Benghazi? I am a good American Democrat, not a liberal. I fought for my country and other veterans. If anyone should be impeached, Mr. Tonko, it should be you. I will keep fighting you until you do the good for the country and us veterans or resign from Congress.Vincent BelardoAlbanycenter_img The most recent act of lunacy was giving driver’s licenses to immigrants in this country illegally.The debate was basically non-existent because the Democrats hurled labels at the Republicans such as “racist” and “xenophobe,” and that effectively ended things. The Democrats chirped about how much more convenient this would be for these individuals. How nice. They’re rewarded for breaking the law, instead of having to do things the right way — the legal way.The Republicans questioned the Democrats if these licenses could be used to register to vote. The Democrats implied that that was extremely unlikely, because these are very hardworking individuals who would never do anything illegal like that. Poppycock.Our voter registration system is basically an “honor system.” It asks two questions: 1) Are you a U.S. citizen? and 2) Do you want to register to vote? Verification is spotty at best. These migrants traveled hundreds of miles to sneak illegally into our country.Do you honestly think they’re going to answer those questions truthfully?Democrats are treating U.S. citizens, New Yorkers, shabbily. The 2020 election is right around the corner, and what goes around, comes around. And remember, an elephant never forgets.Ken TrumanAlbanyTonko should do a better job or resignlast_img read more
