Fear where Trump’s ego will take country

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionRecently, in Tennessee, President Trump said to a group of farm workers, “You are so lucky that I gave you the privilege of voting for me.” Is there no end to this man’s egotistical vanity? I would rather expect to hear the president of a government of, for and by the people to say something like,”I am so lucky that you, by your votes, gave me the privilege of representing you.” I shudder to think where this man’s “mine is bigger than yours” complex will lead us.Robert FredetteNiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:Puccioni’s two goals help Niskayuna boys’ soccer top Shaker, remain perfectNiskayuna girls’ cross country wins over BethlehemFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationlast_img read more

Residents at Yates  should be grateful

first_imgMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady department heads: Budget cutbacks would further stress already-stretched departmentsSchenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcyEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationTroopers: Schenectady pair possessed heroin, crack cocaine in Orange County Thruway stop Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Re May 24 column, “Yates Village residents concerned about changes,” by Sara Foss: I have to comment on the piece regarding Yates Village changes concerning the residents.  When the women Sara interviewed had children they couldn’t afford and went on public assistance, they forfeited control over their housing. Instead of complaining on a “sunny May afternoon,” they would do better to be working or attending school. There are programs for that. But I guess it’s easier to be on social services and to find fault.  Sometimes life is about choices, and theirs don’t seem to be working too well for them.If the residents there don’t feel in need of the planned improvements, save the city and taxpayers the money. Or spend it elsewhere. Meanwhile, they should be thankful that their housing isn’t just being provided, but upgraded, because in some societies, they would be living on the street.  Jillian St. ThomasSchenectadylast_img read more
