One word not in my vocabulary

One word not in my vocabulary Rev. James L. Snyder I have long been an avid reader of Webster's New World dictionary of the American language. My well-thumbed copy suggests I have done a lot of reading in it. It is the one book within easy reach of my study. Although I enjoy reading it, it does not have much of a plot. Whenever I get the idea that I know many words, and people can be proud of stupid things like this, I pull down my dictionary and begin reading. Although I have read it ... Full Story

Disappointed in Cory Gardener

Disappointed in Cory Gardener

    Dear Editor,   I've been particularly disappointed in our Representative Cory Gardner. I can remember when Cory was running for office, he used to complain about how our congresswoman never did any town halls. Since Cory's swearing in,  he's had even fewer. I got a letter from Rep. Garden last week touting that his vote for the Republican budget plan was going to protect Medicare for people 55 years old and older, but what about the people under 55 years ... Full Story

I don’t understand why Representative Gardner hasn’t taken a direct stand against tax subsidies for oil and gas companies. These large corporations are incredibly successful and profitable without the help of taxpayer money. According to the new Taxpayers for Common Sense “Subsidy Gusher” Report, from 2001 to ...

The right’s mirror-image view of life

The right’s mirror-image view of life

Anti-abortion campaigners in the US fail to value life lost through war, or those taken by a punitive justice system. In Al Jazeera Opinion by: Cliff Schecter Yesterday, I pulled up to a drive-through ATM, and sitting in front of me in the line was a car with a license plate that simply stated, "Choose Life". Who can argue with that? I support life, don't you? The problem, of course, is the relationship between that phrase and the US right wing. You know, the ones who are petrified ... Full Story

Congress to Palestinians: Drop dead

Congress to Palestinians: Drop dead

Netanyahu's address to Congress demonstrated that he has no intention of making peace with the Palestinians. Opinion by MJ Rosenberg If anyone had any doubt about whether the Palestinians would declare a state in September, they can't have them now. On Tuesday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu delivered a speech to Congress that essentially was a series of insults to Palestinians and every insult was met by applause and standing ovations.
