Writer questions McGrath’s opposition to Supreme Court nominee

I have not heard anything from Amy McGrath about her thoughts on the new U.S. Supreme Court nomination. All I know is that she is against it. If McGrath wants to be elected to Congress, she needs to communicate to the people of her district on why she makes her decisions. Most likely she doesn’t have an opinion and does what she is told from her party. McGrath is not what the people of Kentucky need. We need a voice, not a puppet.

Bigger is not necessarily better

I think the practical way to present an academic subject in a mere letter is to pursue it by categories. A still shorter route is to restrict it to three prominent categories: economics, politics and religion. Empowerment logically follows big money, and this is true to a degree in each category.

Retirees will remember taxed pensions

Lost in all the noise about Kentucky’s pension and tax-plan changes is the fact that pensioners will pay up to $500 a year in income taxes. For a two-pensioner household the amount is $1,000. These are people on fixed incomes. There was almost no advance warning on the change to allow retirees to comment and/or plan for the sizable increase. We too will take this into account in November.

Catholic radio station, app a boon

We have a great resource in having one of the stations (1380 AM/94.9 FM) on the Catholic Relevant Radio network available to us. It is nourishment for believers, and invites calls, emails and tweets from others. An app provides another way to access its programming, either live or in podcasts.

Herald-Leader dwindling

It is so sad to see the gradual demise of a once-great paper, the Herald-Leader. First, the paper got rid of the printing presses. There are no East Coast sports scores and no articles about evening news stories. The sports section is just about worthless. Features have been cut back. And now, the paper has gone to two sections. My wife likes the puzzles, I like sports, and now we can’t even do both at the same time. Pitiful! It really won’t surprise me to see the announcement sometime next year that the Herald-Leader will cease publishing the print version of the paper. So sad.

Patriots’ call to action

Not since Joseph Stalin has Russia been ruled by such a ruthless dictator as President Vladimir Putin. As the former KGB head, he is well-trained in the practices of a criminal professional. He has invaded former Russian territories, blackmailed politicians, poisoned or imprisoned critics and launched cyber-attacks on governments in Europe.

Why aren’t deficit-hawks squawking at Trump?

I would like to know what it is costing the taxpayer for having virtually two White Houses for President Donald Trump, one in Washington D.C. and one in Florida. How much is it costing the taxpayer for Trump’s vindictive lawsuits brought by the U.S. Department of Justice, mostly for unwinnable cases? How many times will he continue to distort the truth without being called to the carpet by Republicans, Democrats or Independents?

Find the center, Democrats

The Democratic Party is in trouble and seemingly has no idea. All across the country, you are seeing waves of far-left, progressive Democrats unseat more establishment candidates. You are seeing the Democrats move further and further left.
