The Democratic House leaders, who have been rushing to impeach President Trump, from day one, ought to research the subject matter, no further than the (Bill) Clinton impeachment episode, to ascertain the pros and cons of a Trump impeachment. A Clinton win shattered the Republican pride, who ended up shooting themselves in the foot later on.The Democratic House majority is…

A president who uses foul language, makes fun of others and lies and makes up and narrates false information … we’re better than this.A Republican Congress that not only ignores these traits, but seems to have inherited them … we’re better than this. Men who once were honorable, but now have given up their principles for their seats in Congress … we’re better than this.Wha…

Beyond what point will the American public decide they’ve had enough? It wasn’t when Donald Trump was elected president with assistance from Russia?Or when he authorized the detention and deportation of families risking everything to come to this country for a better life? Separating children from their parents, many never reunited? Proposing a wall across the southern Uni…

I’m on the road every day and I cannot believe the many cars without headlights on that I see, be it a snowy day, a rainy day or at dusk.It’s been a law for a very long time that says if wipers go on, then headlights must go on. I know that many cars have headlights that go on automatically and many cars don’t.I would like every driver to watch oncoming traffic and see for…

Hand-picked academics testified against our president while looking down their liberal noses at us, the Americans who elected Donald Trump.What would you expect these so-called “experts” to say knowing their liberal Trump-hating backgrounds? How could any clear-thinking American think that these hearings are in any way fair and unbiased.Democrats know that they cannot beat…

A recent article on lobbying and fundraisers for politicians brought up an interesting subject for discussion. Donald Trump is facing impeachment because Adam Schiff and the House Democrats are accusing him for a “quid pro quo” which is making deals with another for a personal gain. They consider this to be a high crime worthy of impeachment.Yet, in New York they are holdi…

I see that Attorney General Bill Barr refuses to accept the findings of his own Department of Justice and Inspector General regarding the start of the Mueller investigation. What a shame. Perhaps what’s needed now is an investigation into the investigation of the investigation. Naturally, if this doesn’t give Barr the result he wants, and fails once again to determine that…

Both local and national opinion-meisters continue to search for more catastrophic terminology to describe the current president and the threat he represents to our very existence.Recent letters in this forum have claimed that, because of Donald Trump, our democracy “is much weaker than we thought,” “now stands on the brink of failure,” we have “the real possibility of losi…

I was excited on Sunday, Nov. 24 to see the article on “The Other Border” and to read the subsequent articles. Clearly there is an alternate story that needs to be told in the north of the inhumane process going on at our southern border. I have just returned (Nov. 18) from a four-day border immersion experience in the Rio Grande Valley in both Texas (McAllen and Browns…

I am writing regarding a recent response to the writer complaining about handicapped parking abuse.I am a “burly” man who looks the picture of health. I frequently get the stares, “tsk tsk’s” and general disgusted looks when I make use of the reserved spaces. Normally it ends there, but once I was verbally accosted by a woman telling me to be ashamed of myself.That was the…

As a physician practicing palliative care medicine for more than 30 years and a supporter of Medical Aid in Dying (MAID), I’m reluctant to let the thrust and statements of the Nov. 29 letter, “Assisted suicide column contains disputable points” opposing its legalization in New York remain unchallenged.As health care professionals have asserted, this is not “assisted suicid…

At this point I feel the city should deny the developers special zoning for a Planned Unit Development (PUD) as requested by Sinatra & Company and Ellicott Development for redevelopment of the former Women & Children’s Hospital site.The developers should not be allowed to circumvent the standard requirements of the Unified Development Plan (Green Code). The code is…

I am one of the naysayers referenced in the Elmwood Crossing editorial. Contrary to the developers’ statement about “the late hour” of our push back, we have been engaged as much as we have been allowed, and now we are speaking louder before it is too late.The Planned Unit Development goes to the full council on Dec. 12. I am for development, but more importantly, Smart Gr…

Seeing a recent poll in The Buffalo News that states that a majority of the Republican respondents picked Donald Trump over Abraham Lincoln as a better president (or maybe the best); is just a head scratching moment.I’m not sure about the methodology of the poll, or where it was conducted. Since everyone is free in a poll to express an opinion, without giving any reason wh…

As I mused over a recent self-admitted deplorable’s letter spouting all things American (Donald Trump), It occurred to me that Trump voters ascribe to certain tenants in Trump world, whether they admit it or not.If you now vote for this president, you tolerate women being sexually assaulted, abused, defiled, intimidated and mocked as acceptable.You look at the destruction …
