Sound off!

Henry Ford had a great idea: Build a car almost everyone could afford. His sales pitches were, “You can order the Model T in any color you want, as long as it’s black.” Apparently AOC has taken Henry’s philosophy to a new level. Her pitch is “You can buy any car you want as long as it’s green.”

I’m concerned about Warren schools and when my fifth-grade child doesn’t get homework. Most kids don’t want homework, but if they follow up at home what they learned in school, it would help them to apply and understand it. Also, it’s hard for kids when classmates have attention problems. What happens when other kids start disrupting the class? Teachers have a hard job, but who is responsible to whom? Board of education, what’s your job?

Democracy is temporary, existing only until voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts. Candidates promising benefits from public treasury win until a collapse due to loose fiscal policy, followed by dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations is 200 years. Nations progress from bondage to spiritual faith to great courage to liberty to abundance to complacency to apathy to dependence and back to bondage. We are in “apathy” stage. If Democrats succeed with socialism (dependence), all will be lost.

Regarding the recent Sound off about puppies being born without legs, in today’s world of technology, a woman knows in advance if something is wrong with her baby before and during her second trimester. They do not with a dog. The Democrats bill is for a failed abortion, to deliver a baby, set it aside, then decide whether to kill it. That is infanticide. That is no better than China, that actually does infanticide.

I agree with state foresters that cutting trees at Newton Falls school is a good chance to increase habitat and wildlife. Many species of song birds rely on young forest habitat, as do many other creatures. Education would be available through the study of the rebounding tree and brush growth and how the wildlife uses as it progresses through the years. This young forest initiative is needed to make sure some species do not disappear from Ohio.

What is the difference between RG Steel, McDonald Steel, General Electric and GM? I don’t know the difference, but apparently no one felt sorry for some who lost jobs and had no jobs to go to. Then some lost everything. My heart goes to all, but it seems that more help should have been offered by our Valley to the others, like they are now offering to GM.

I don’t think this area needs the Mahoning River State Park. The millions of dollars they plan to spend to make a few canoers happy is ridiculous. That money should be used to fix all the roads in Trumbull and Mahoning counties. That would benefit a lot more people.

U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan never has anything nice to say about President Trump and only mentions him when he wants something. Trump is president and not a dictator (as some have suggested). He can’t tell GM what to do. Perhaps he should seek out AOC, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. They act like they are running the place.
