    War, tax cuts a fiscally inane paradigm for U.S.

    As an American and combat veteran, I am bitterly opposed to only 1 percent of our citizens defending our country. If most Americans feel that the wars we are engaged in are necessary for the protection of our country then the draft should be re-implemented and taxes should be raised considerably. George W. Bush was […]

    Government needs to understand budget cuts

    Shouldn’t the government keep from spending so much that it endangers national sovereignty and security, or at least something akin to it? It would be an understatement to say this is rather important. Yet, the question is unnecessarily raised repeatedly. Why can’t government grasp the concept of budget cuts? I’m not talking about spending less, […]

    Stench of coverup in Dennis Dechaine case

    Webster’s dictionary defines hubris as “wanton insolence or arrogance resulting from excessive pride,” and defines complicity as “partnership in wrongdoing.” The Dennis Dechaine case illustrates how the Maine Attorney General’s Office has demonstrated both for more than two decades.

    What is wrong with working for a living?

    We finally have a true people’s governor. It has always been easy to promise change for the working people, but the doing has always been the problem. The entrenched liberals have given away the farm for years (it ensured another vote for them later). Why not give the rich people’s money away, so what if […]

    GOP forcing nation onto financially suicidal path

    Many of my friends say that there is no appreciable difference between the two political parties. With regard to foreign policy, unfortunately, I agree with them. During my adult life, there have been many wars and many intrusions by the United States into other countries where we have no business. We have overthrown legally elected […]

    Why can’t CMP just leave poles with osprey nests?

    Janet Dyer (letter, July 9, "CMP's Policies Manage Osprey Nest Responsibly") is concerned that people may have the wrong impression of CMP's actions regarding the osprey along the 176 miles of line being discontinued by the Maine Power Reliability Project.

    Assaulted by bunch of leaf-eating hypocrites

    We are being attacked on all sides by Americans who think they have the right to tell us what we can put into our bodies.

    Government employees should have to buy U.S.

    I saw a show on TV recently that said U.S. representatives are allowed (and do) lease cars at taxpayers expense.

    Motorcyclist seen texting; what’s next?

    I couldn’t believe my eyes today. I was leaving Togus, sitting at the light, and I saw a man on his motorcycle texting while riding by. Really? We have issues with people driving and texting, and now motorcyclists, too. Then down the road at the rotary, a woman was talking on her phone while driving […]
