Letters to the Editor

Saturday, July 30, 2011

Dear Editor:

This letter is in response to the article in the Times News dated Wednesday July 20, 2011 regarding Tamaqua residents and their sudden mandate to connect to the Tamaqua Borough Inc.'s sewer line. A few thoughts came to mind while reading this article.

Dear Editor:

Is there really a problem with Climate Change?

Dear Editor:

Just when you think Congressman Holden couldn't be any further out of touch with people of Schuylkill County, he stuns us yet again. Holden's latest stunner is that he agrees with Barack Obama that Uncle Sam's credit card limit should be increased beyond $14.3 trillion, and that wasteful spending shouldn't be decreased as a condition for increasing the credit card limit!

Dear Editor:

I have just returned from Jim Thorpe, a place I had not visited for 10 years. It pretty much seems the same as it was back then nestled in the peaceful mountain side as described to me by my best friend while we sat in the Sinai desert back in 1984.

Dear Editor:

It seems when someone is elected to congress and as soon as they're sworn in they start working on re-election.

I think it is about time that we limit congress to one term (maybe 5 or 6 years). That way they can forget about getting re-elected and focus on doing their jobs and working for the country an not forthemselves.

If we don't do something soon this country will be held hostage by people trying to make a name for themselves. I don't care what party, they are all gulity of thinking about themselves.

Dear Editor:

I can't express how happy I was to read those letters to the Editor (7/16/11).

Not only does it hit home to all Americans, but it SHOULD.

Dear Editor:

Throughout this difficult economic cycle, my top goal is to do whatever I can to protect local jobs and get our unemployed and underemployed workers back to work. Other states are hurting their abilities to attract business. For example, Connecticut passed the largest tax increase in their state's history this year while increasing spending. Eleven other states increased taxes this year. Our local taxpayers simply cannot afford a tax increase.

Dear Editor:

I commend Gov. Corbett and the PA Senate and the PA House of Representatives for passing the state budget ON TIME and with NO TAX INCREASE. For the last eight years Ed Rendell has employed a tax and spend agenda that made many Pennsylvanians nice and warm and cozy, at the expense of the hard working taxpayers. Taxes were raised. Reserves were depleted. And funds were diverted from their original intended purpose.

Dear Editor:

Regarding the July 15, 2011 article, "Public Education Key for Our Nation," I agree with the Erie Times-News article to point out the importance and long history of public education in the United States. It was revolutionary when pioneers like Horace Mann and Thaddeus Stevens instituted public school systems in the 1830s.

Dear Editor:

Let's all write congress to get off their butts and do something.

What's going to happen if no agreement is reached? Veterans disability checks – Social Security checks – Armed Forces paychecks – mortgages unpaid – can't afford to pay bills or get medicine? Tell Congressman Cantor and McCollen to grow up, look out for the little guy for once!

Just because they have money and don't hit the little guy all the time.

It's time we all get sick of this bull !

I Remain,
