Politicians: Cut down on signs and flyers

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Since Sept. 1, we’ve been exposed to our annual public displays of ugly, cheap political signs.These signs should be regulated — maybe one sign for every 500 feet.These politicos and their campaign staff are now littering our mailboxes with these glossy photos. Placing items in mailboxes is illegal under U.S. Postal Service policy. Ben Franklin established the most successful government program in world history — the United States Postal Service. Let’s show respect and have the politicos remove these glossy photos voluntarily or they should be prosecuted under federal postal laws.This pollution by politicos shouldn’t be accepted. Why should we have to recycle their photos? Let’s also respect our letter carriers who are on a six-day a week schedule.Glenn RaymusRotterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesRotterdam convenience store operator feels results of having Stewart’s as new neighborCar hits garage in Rotterdam Sunday morning; Garage, car burnEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationlast_img read more

70 isn’t elderly; Tide Pod law is overreach

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionWhy is it necessary to refer to a 70-year-old woman as “elderly?” Many, many 70-year-old (and older) individuals are active and are very productive. I don’t understand why it’s necessary to further define this woman when you’ve already published her age.Also, what parent would leave the dangerous pods where a child could access them? Another new law? One that takes simple responsibility away from a parent or caregiver who doesn’t use common sense.Virginia GraneyGlenvilleMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homeslast_img read more

We lost credibility on North Korea

first_imgThe proposed meeting of the U.S. president and the dictator of North Korea, which has never happened before, and for good reason, will result in a total lack of credibility from here on out to the resolve of the United States to act on behalf of its interests and allies. Trump has said repeatedly that if North Korea tries anything, the United States will crush them with fire and fury. On the floor of the United Nations, in front of the whole world, Trump said he would wipe North Korea off the face of the Earth. A very strong stance, but was it just bluster? North Korea offers a face-to-face meeting between the two leaders, and Trump jumps at the chance, “Tell them I’ll do it, I accept.” Now, North Korea and the world know Trump was just bluffing. It was all bravado. So in the next world crisis, for example if Russia invades Ukraine, and the United States says, “You had better stop or else,” the United States will be seen as a paper tiger. Henry MoltSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady police reform sessions pivot to onlineFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Schenectady department heads: Budget cutbacks would further stress already-stretched departmentsSchenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcyMotorcyclist injured in Thursday afternoon Schenectady crash Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more
