In Your Opinion: GOP's lies aren't helping America
How anyone under the present circumstances can hold their heads up and call themselves Republicans is beyond me. The outrageous lies that are emanating from the elected officials in Washington are beyond belief.Continued ...
In Your Opinion: Speak out for campaign finance reform
"We, the people" recently had a very bad week. On March 28, the approved New York state budget once again failed to meaningfully address campaign finance issues.

In Your Opinion: Many have died to keep our nation free
Jeers to Mr. Ryan and "Bring on socialism" (April 12-13) also a couple of "atta-girls" to Mrs. Bordinger, who ruffled Mr. Ryan and mate's feathers. If they believe Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland are so great, why aren't they and several million other illegal aliens over there?Continued ...

In Your Opinion: State needs to prioritize rehab
I watch a lot of TV, too much, perhaps, but the shows are better and better. I often focus on shows relating to alcohol. I just watched the last segment of "Shameless," about an outrageous Chicago family in the drunken downward crazy spiral of poverty and alcohol, and I am looking forward to the final season of "Mad Men," which is often three-piece-suit drinking, but often with the same sad outcome.Continued ...

In Your Opinion: Bring on the socialism
I was elated to read the headline above the March 26th letter of Mary Bordinger: "America becoming a socialist state." "Well," I said to my better-half, "it's about time. Now we'll have single-payer health insurance, low-cost housing, investment in mass transit and education. There'll be more economic equality. We'll be just like those Scandinavian countries that have socialist or labor governments."Continued ...
