Letters to the Editor for Tuesday, July 9

first_imgDemocrats are doing harm to the countryThe purpose of this is to help make The Gazette great again and to debunk some liberal talking points used by Doug McFadden in his June 29 letter (“Support getting rid of Trump, McConnell”). He attempted to discredit Jane Pauze’s June 22 letter (“Enough effort wasted investigating Trump”) that spoke to the damage the progressive liberal wing of the Democratic party is doing to this great nation.Mr. McFadden’s claim that “Trump tried hard to obstruct justice“ is said honestly as, “tried hard to defend himself. “Gone it seems are Ronald Reagan’s “blue-dog“ and John Kennedy’s “Ask what you can do for your country.” Democrats were  shamefully replaced by the liberal progressives that condone killing live-born babies and open borders that will allow other 9-11 — butchers to prey upon the innocents.Create sanctuary cities such as Saratoga and Albany that harbor illegal Democratic voters, a.k.a., immigrants.Worse is their attempt to discredit, damage and destroy Donald Trump, his family and anyone ever associated with him. This is a blatant attempt to destroy us and our way of life.As Ms. Pauze said, ”He ate your lunch.“ Tough – suck it up and love your country.What’s also sad is that many opinion page authors unwittingly support these hate groups.God did indeed “bless America.“ Don’t screw it up,  Libs.Jack OsterlitzGlenvilleDemocrats in Albany show their humanity In response to Jennifer Richards’ July 2  letter (“Prioritize humans over animals in NY”) in which she criticizes the recent ban on declawing cats passed by the state Legislature, she should read and think about the quote from the great Mahatma Gandhi of India, who said, “the greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”Cat declawing is inhumane and should be outlawed. I hope it passes in every state soon.Ms., Richards also states that the Democrats, who now control New York state government, should pay more attention to “dignity-of-life” issues, especially on the issue of banning abortion.It seems that the pro-life movement condemns all abortion, period.They are hypocrites when they ignore or minimize life after birth. Issues like poverty, education, income inequality and the inhumane treatment of migrants in cages don’t seem to matter. I’m proud to be a Democrat and animal lover in New York state.Lori HudsonPattersonvilleMelania stays quiet on border situationBorder Wall – where is Melania Trump?
