Today's Opinions

  • Krugman not reliable with facts, either

    I’d  like to respond to Michael Jedson’s April 20 letter, “Whittlesey needs to get facts right.”
    Most people who put down Fox News and Rush Limbaugh do not watch or listen to either one. If you are going to state they aren’t reliable on facts, I wouldn’t come back with quotes from Paul Krugman.
    He is a leftist elite who thinks – as they all do – that they should lead and the masses should just follow as sheep, or as the liberals prefer, mobs.

  • Time for us to behave ourselves

    When I’m  out of town, I rely on the Internet to keep abreast of  what’s happening at home.
    Locals are calling Lancaster County the wild West and out-of-town newspapers publish every incident of wrong doing attributed to current and former Lancaster folks. Comments from readers of those articles usually have plenty of disparaging comments about Lancaster and us.
    Years ago, we dared to cross the river after sundown. Sure looks like the bad chickens have come home to roost.

  • Republican corruption, taxes and our children

    I am a Democrat, and I am proud of it. However, the S.C. Press Association distributes this column, and neither they nor I want it to be a weekly partisan rant – there’s far too much of that in both our national and state politics already.

  • All voters need a wake up call

    I would like to respond to Alana Henderson’s column, “All parties need wake-up call,” in the April 22 edition of The Lancaster News.
    Since I was labeled “uninformed” and “naïve” in Ms. Henderson’s article, I feel it necessary to correct her assumptions. I haven’t found it advisable to assume I know everything about a person, but perhaps Ms. Henderson hasn’t learned that lesson yet.

  • Hospice Care of SC celebrates Nurses Week

    Hospice Care of South Carolina is joining the American Nurses Association in celebrating Nurses: Advocating, Leading, Caring as part of National Nurses Week, which is held May 6-12 every year.
    The purpose of the week-long celebration is to raise awareness of the value of nursing and help educate the public about the role nurses play in meeting the health-care needs of the American people.

  • Obama surrounds himself with communists, socialists, Muslims

    Anyone  who believes Paul Krugman and his Keynesian economics ideology do not actually understand Keynesian economics. He is supported by the New York Times newspaper, which ceased being an actual news organization at least 10 years ago. It is very clear now the the stimulus spending has not achieved its objectives.
    Keynesianism does not work, never has worked and never will work. History has so much proof of this truth.

  • Hospital week begins today

    A hospital is more than a place where people go to heal; it’s a part of a community that fosters health and represents hope. From providing treatment and comfort to the sick, to welcoming new life into the world, hospitals are central to a healthy and optimistic community. That’s the message of the 2012 National Hospital Week, which is celebrated this year on May 6-12.

  • Vote Democrat if you support our education

    Since the 1970s, the Republican strategy in the South has urged white voters to defect from the “civil-rights-supporting Democratic Party.”
    This continued through the years, with attacks on busing and affirmative action, then immigration and welfare. Newt Gingrich recently labeled President Barack Obama “the food stamp president.”
