Make paper better by exposing facts

first_imgHey, I understand the Schenectady Gazette is searching for ideas to “make the paper better.”I have a novel idea for them; Print the truth. That would be a great thing and a refreshing change. Expose the lies brought by liberals such as: New York is all-inclusive. Oh, but it’s not conservatives or Republicans who we “are coming after.”Uplift the American greatness evolved from the Constitution and expose the anti-constitutional aspects, such as overreaching judges. Go after corrupt politics and be a true voice of the people instead of another polluted arm of political correctness. Expose those who oppose our president, such as Sen. Charles Schumer.Newspapers used to be those that exposed these kinds of things, but not anymore. Barry GroatSchenectady More from The Daily Gazette:Troopers: Schenectady pair possessed heroin, crack cocaine in Orange County Thruway stopEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusSchenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcyAnderson starts, but Dodgers finish off NLCS winSchenectady man dies following Cutler Street dirt bike crash Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more

Kids wrong to trash Second Amendment

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Really? Not only is the Second Amendment outdated, but so is the whole Constitution? Apparently our education departments have been quite lax in explaining how the Constitution changed the whole world in freeing and protecting an oppressed people of early America from a tyrannical regime. This document has been so revolutionary as to be adopted by multiple, burgeoning countries worldwide for the past two centuries seeking freedom from oppression. The call to make 21 the minimum age to buy a gun is against the Second Amendment and for good reason. Imagine the uproar there would be if it was proposed to not allow people over 65 (retirement age), blacks, Muslims or any other ethnic, religious, etc. group to purchase firearms. It would be  a justifiable protestation. This amendment is necessary.  Watch the images of our members of Congress marching through the halls of the U.S. Capitol protected by armed guards. Watch the Second Amendment-protesting celebrities protected by armed guards. And how many shootings of these groups have we had? Negligible. Armed guards work. Why do we accept this, yet not for our  school children, who have been shown to be a larger more vulnerable target? Are they not as, if not more, deserving?  This makes common sense of which, unfortunately, well meaning though they may be, our “active children” are sadly lacking.Arthur SalvatoreSaratoga SpringsMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motorists Quotes from the “great march” by our “active children”: “I think that the Second Amendment at this time is outdated,” one young woman said. “I think that the wording needs to be revisited.” Another woman echoed the sentiment, saying that the Second Amendment was written for a “different time,” while another argued that it doesn’t apply in today’s society. “I think that the Constitution in and of itself is something that’s outdated,” one demonstrator said.”last_img read more

Bus driver parked too long with lights on

first_imgI observed a car going south on Heidelberg Avenue passing a school bus going north at about 7:40 a.m. on April 30.The school bus was stopped with yellow lights flashing for a prolonged period. Sometimes they do that and just park in one spot with yellow flashing.A car slowed up, not knowing his intention, I assume. As the car passed the bus slowly, the bus driver went to red lights flashing and started tooting his horn hysterically at the car. I believe the school bus driver was “driven” by guilt — guilt over the prospect that his prolonged parking may have created a dangerous situation for children and drivers.  An explanation from the bus driver is called for.It’s time a law be enacted to penalize school bus drivers who abuse the privilege they have to transport our children. At the very minimum, a yellow light meter needs to be installed on school buses to monitor prolonged yellow light parking.A daily review should be required by people who hire school bus drivers.The school bus driver in question needs to seek other employment. He or she isn’t emotionally suited to transport children.Edmond Day RotterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:Rotterdam convenience store operator feels results of having Stewart’s as new neighborEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidation Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more
