Long con

It is not unreasonable to believe that the average American citizen thinks that their president should not trick, manipulate or incessantly lie to the public. Unquestionably these are the character traits of Donald Trump. Since Republicans say little about Trump’s conduct, it is also not unreasonable to believe that Republicans are happy having a lying con man as president. Trump supporters are jeopardizing our democracy by their continuing support of Trump.

Over the wall

Border crossings are at their lowest and illegal immigrants currently in the U.S. are more likely to have come legally through visas now expired. No wall, no matter how expensive, will keep our borders safe. Homeland Security has long preferred more personnel and technology, especially to detect tunneling, over a wall. But Trump and his followers aren’t listening to those on the front lines. They believe what they want to believe.

Say what you feel

The congresswoman from Michigan could have expressed the wishes of her constituents without censoring the vocabulary they might use. The remark certainly got national publicity and perhaps expressed the thoughts of many other Americans. To say her only goal is impeachment is absolutely wrong.

Great lions

I want to say a big thank you and God bless to the Lions Club for the delicious hot meals they deliver to us during the holidays. Happy New Year.

Best wishes

Richard Fowler is a breath of fresh air. I don’t know his political affiliation, but he sounds like he could be an upcoming and rising new breed that we desperately need. He deserves to be seen and heard, His article was fantastic and his views are great. Good luck, Richard Fowler.

Within their hands

Eight hundred thousand employees are without pay. All of them could conceivably easily influence four additional votes. How do you think they will vote especially knowing their fate is in the hands of Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter?

Numbers game

A recent caller to Sound Off said President Trump told 5,656 lies in 2018. Could it have been 5,655 or possibly 5,657? Do you have any idea how stupid you even sound? The fact is that Trump is telling the truth. But in the words of Jack Nicholson, you Democrats can’t handle the truth.

New normal

The government reported that under President Trump U.S. manufacturers posted their best year in decades. The manufacturing industry created a net 284,000 jobs in 2018. The Labor Department said manufacturers added 32,000 jobs in December. Most of these new jobs are in durable goods, such as fabricated metals and electronics. Trump has made jobs growth and manufacturing a priority.

Wonder wall

I wonder what contractor Trump owes the wall bid to? He must owe something to somebody that is he is that bent on a wall or else he just wants his name on it so he can start a country just like Russia and them did. Build a wall around the country. Make it a Communist country. What the heck?

Special position

With Mr. Lutz now on the sewer authority in Kulpmont, hopefully Chairman Varano appoints him to a position to try and mitigate the rat problem, which runs rampant in the community. You know what they say, you got to be one to catch one.

First day

Democrats and the House of Representatives on their first day in control passed a bill with support and tax dollars for easier access to abortions. All Pennsylvania Democrat representatives voted for it.

Get behind me Satan

Where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there. As long as there are two or three of us who believe in God, the church will survive. Satan is working his evil in you to tear us down. The Catholic Church will survive. We will defeat you and your evil and Satan with our prayers. God bless.
