When I read Ann Womble’s op-eds in the LNP | LancasterOnline Sunday Perspective section, I get the impression that she’s a confused person. I remember her from my years in office. Her disdain for President Donald Trump is obvious, even though he had three remarkable years. He lowered unemplo…
With the next round of stimulus checks in the process of arriving, my guess is that there are a large number of families who don’t “need” the money, in that they have been gainfully employed and have not suffered financially this past year.
When I was a freshman in high school in October 2004, I attended my first campaign rally when President George W. Bush campaigned for reelection at Lancaster Airport.
I was sickened by the ugly spectacle of rioting mobs of people attacking the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6. They were there to destroy, to vandalize and to disrupt the process that our Constitution demands and stands for. That was an insurrection that we witnessed in real time.…
As the pandemic surges in this country, I am waiting for the president to keep us informed on any updated information, give us assurance that the government is doing everything to get it under control and offer condolences for the families who have lost loved ones.
The events of Jan. 6 were the culmination of four years of furious work to tear down our country. The really interesting thing is that we all helped in the process. It truly was a national public works project.
The flood of defamatory letters against U.S. Rep. Lloyd Smucker prompts me to point out the valuable service his office provided me in resolving a problem with the IRS.
Like many of my neighbors here in Lancaster County, I am deeply disappointed that Congressman Lloyd Smucker has chosen — for whatever reasons — to consistently side with a president who encouraged violence against our elected leaders so he could remain in the most powerful office in the world.
This is a sobering time for Americans. On Jan. 6, protesters pushed past barriers and unlawfully entered the U.S. Capitol while Congress was meeting jointly to accept the states’ certified election results.
President Donald Trump’s lies and attacks on our democracy finally, in my view, encouraged white supremacists, domestic terrorists, conspiracy believers and right-wing extremists to respond. And they did so with violence, chaos and destruction in a violent attack on the U.S. Capitol. Such vi…
Human nature is to not trust people who lie to you. We might give them a chance to redeem themselves, but if they lie to us again, we know not to trust them.
Early on Jan. 7, U.S. Rep. Lloyd Smucker voted against the acceptance of Pennsylvania’s electoral votes in the presidential election won by Joe Biden. Smucker’s action sought to disenfranchise the people of Pennsylvania, including his constituents — the voters in the 11th Congressional District.
U.S. Rep. Lloyd Smucker, I read in LNP | LancasterOnline your speech to Congress on Jan. 7 and I am deeply ashamed that you are our congressional representative.
What is so unforgivable at this time in U.S. history is the unimaginable gullibility of so many people! To fall for the outrageous lies and conspiracy theories espoused by one spoiled rich man reveals a naiveté which, simply put, is mind-blowing!
