Letters to the Editor

Business success lies in prosperity for all

To the editor: Economic blindness amongst “conservatives” is presently yet another vicious pandemic. Look, the economic interests of business lie in the highest possible prosperity for everyone: Poor people can not purchase their production. Business should be doing everything possible ...

The Proud Boys labeled a Terrorist Organization in Canada

To the editor: The Proud Boys have been designated as a hate group and banned in Canada as a Terrorist Organization. The group has spread propaganda/lies about the election and its members encouraged and participated in the riot at the Capitol that resulted in the injury of 140 officers on ...

Welcome to Florida

To the editor: Florida’s beautiful weather, no state income tax and all-around wonderful quality of life is bringing many people from across the country to relocate here. I have noticed a trend that is alarming and for those of you who moved from Northeastern states and other states where ...

Food for thought

To the editor: I think it an outdated, puritanical notion that work alone should be rewarded. I am not opposed to giving away food to the hungry and having the government create debt to subsidize the underemployed. But COVID-19 relief should not be about give-aways to business. That is not ...

VA vaccination policy is shameful

To the editor: I am a 74-year-old veteran trying to get a COVID vaccination. You would think that the Veterans Administration would be extremely proactive in providing the vaccine to its veterans, but that’s not the case. First, you have to be 75 or older to receive the COVID vaccine and ...
