Rice is not distinguished enough to speak the truth Susan Rice is a liar and a professional incompetent. This is the woman who went on every Sunday news program on September 16, 2012, and lied to America. She told us:“But our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous – not a pr…

Medicaid problem grows while no leader solves itThe number of Americans on Medicaid has increased from 29 million in 1990 to 73 million today. Yet the population only increased 30 percent in that time. Spending on Medicaid is $574 billion today compared to $209 billion in 2000.Medicaid was meant to be a safeguard for people in need, but obviously things have gone astray. I…

Democrats should rethink attack on Trump and RussiaRussia, Russia, Russia. They did this, they did that! Impeach him! He’s not fit for office! He’s this and he’s that. The left has been after him about this for how long now? OK, where’s the evidence? Oh, before I go to evidence, Clinton’s 3 million vote lead? Half of it came from New York City, at roughly 1,969,9…

Drug court does not properly address the addiction crisisDrug court is a very well-intentioned failure. It pushes habitual users (to be distinguished from neurobiological addicts) into therapies that were designed for true addicts. There are methods to diagnose true neurobiological addicts. Referral from drug court, without a medical diagnosis whether the convict is prima…

Trump will run the country aground like his businessesI read with interest every day the various opinion and op-ed pieces regarding Donald Trump. I won’t call him president because as a veteran I can’t bring myself to stomach the thought that our country is being run by a small-minded bigoted anti-American.As one who is proud to be an American and veteran I can’t bel…

The problem isn’t just that the Senate is divided; the Republicans who control it are split. Their factions include ideological conservatives who want the government out of health care entirely and practical ones w…

By Jo K. Nasoff-Finton I applaud the July 11 editorial “Amherst taxpayers will foot the bill as boards battle over zoning authority,” but am firmly of the belief that something – even a lawsuit at taxpayers’ expense – should be done to stop the egregious overreach of power displayed by the Amherst Zoning Board in its issuance of “use” and other variances t…

By Robert LeFauve   “Age is just a number,” my wife tells me. Well, lots of things are numbers: blood pressure, credit card debt, golf scores. None of these get better as they get larger. Anyway, it’s easy for her to talk, since age seems to have missed her entirely and fallen with a thump on me. I lost the pepper in my salt-and-pepper hair some time ago. …

Ringing bells do not annoy those waiting for their callLiving in the City of Lackawanna for 52 years, I thought I had seen it all or heard it all about this city. However, the July 12 letter to the editor, “Little peace and quiet would be appreciated,” really beats them all!To some who read it, it appears that the writer is totally self-centered and thinks of nothing b…

Democrats are at a loss on how to help the countryAmazing … an idea from a Democrat!Since the day after the presidential election not one Democrat, not Chuck Schumer, not Nancy Pelosi, not anyone has come up with an idea to help better this country.
