Letters to the Editor for Monday, Feb. 11

first_imgI’m referring to attitude of guardians, the lifestyle kids see and hear, day in and day out. Kids having no discipline or encouragement at home. It’s like Groundhog Day: same thing over, and over, same report, year in, and year out. Tell kids the truth. Everyone is not made for college. With all the trades begging for good people, that’s where their future lies. It takes hard work, no drugs, dressing right, talking right, you get it. Until the real truth is told, nothing will change but the deceivers. Al Marvell Scotia Warren perfect for Dems’ mentalityDemocrats, you can stop looking for your 2020 presidential candidate.All you believe in has been identified in the perfect candidate. Elizabeth Warren, liar, mentally ill, deceitful, devious, self-promoting and quick to jump on the diversity bandwagon.Geraldine KrawitzSaratoga SpringsMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusGov. Andrew Cuomo’s press conference for Sunday, Oct. 18EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidation Change culture by telling kids the truthFirst, you were spot on in the editorial about Cuomo and, most important to me and many others, Schenectady County education and graduation rates.All the money in the world isn’t going to change things unless the “culture” does. Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionTrump policies are hurting middle classDave Edwards’ Jan. 26 letter opposing raising taxes on the very rich makes assertions that require examination.When the rich paid their fair share, the United States was prosperous. The middle class was built during the 1950s when the top tax rate was above 90 percent; in the 1960s, a decade of unsurpassed economic prosperity, the top rate ranged between 70 and 91 percent. Today, as the middle class shrinks, the wealthiest one percent, according to the Tax Foundation, earn over 20 percent of all income, but pay taxes at a rate of about 27 percent, far less than the 50 plus percent Edwards suggests.The richest 0.001 percent of Americans earn over $160 million annually, but pay taxes at a 3.5 percent rate. The recent Trump tax cuts, most of which benefit the wealthy, have created a huge budget deficit that will eventually justify cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.Despite Edwards’ claim to the contrary, the American economy did better under Obama than under Trump. First, Obama started and sustained the 100-plus months of economic expansion that Trump brags aboutSecond, during Obama’s first two years in office, job growth was better, and the unemployment rate fell faster.Finally, the economy grew more rapidly in 2014 and 2015 than it did during Trump’s first two years.Unfortunately, the Obama recovery is now showing signs of a slow-down thanks to Trump’s unpredictable behavior and his ill-advised tariffs that have triggered a trade war.William ScheuermanScotialast_img read more

Tiger Woods accepts reality after another bad PGA round: It’s getting harder for him to win majors

first_imgTiger Woods conceded he was running out of time to win major titles after falling out of contention at the PGA Championship on Saturday.The 44-year-old American shot a 2-over 72 for a second successive round, which left him with little to play for leading into the final day at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco. TIGER ON SUNDAY: How to watch his round at the PGAThe tournament will represent another opportunity missed for the reigning Masters champion in his bid to equal Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 major victories. Woods has managed 15 over a 24-year professional career, but only one since 2008.”There’s not as many [opportunities to win] as when I first started playing,” Woods said after completing his round. “The reality is that the golf courses are getting bigger. They are getting longer. The margin between making the cut and the lead is a lot smaller than it used to be. Used to be sometimes 12 to 15 shots.”Now we had, what, nine shots here? It’s just different. It’s getting tighter and it’s getting harder to win events, but you look at the leaderboard of most major championships, you see the same guys.2 birdies.4 bogeys.4 fairways hit.12 greens in regulation.31 putts.Tiger Woods cards a 2-over 72 in Round 3 of the PGA Championship. He’s +2 for the tournament. pic.twitter.com/cG7XCaJfUH— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) August 8, 2020“May not be always the same winners, but you see the same handful of guys are there. They understand how to win major championships, how to win the big events, how to plod their way along, how difficult it is to win these big events.”Putting again proved a problem for Woods as he failed to make a birdie until the 16th hole. Though well behind the contenders, Woods said he had a clear goal in mind for the final round.”You just keep fighting, no matter what,” he said. “Whether the rounds are shooting 61s or shooting 81s, the intensity should always be there, the effort should always be there. I keep fighting until the end [with] pride in what I do. I love to compete. Unfortunately I didn’t do my job today.”At the end it clicked and hopefully I can get something going tomorrow and get into the red for the tournament.”last_img read more
