Progressive governments all have a fatal flaw

Having read Mr. Stanfield’s recent letter, I think that perhaps it is he that is a bit confused about the benefits of  progressive government programs.

It is like most cheerleaders of all things progressive, he has never had the pleasure of living in a truly progressive country, like say Venezuela, or maybe Greece.

Progressive programs benefit conservatives

A recent contributor to the letter section of the Triplicate is obviously confused. The 40 percent who he claims believe in traditional values like voter control and restriction, deny global warming, denying a woman’s right to abortion, are bent on following their hero Ronald Reagan in his effort to abolish labor unions and thus the destruction of the middle class.

Rather than doing anything about minimum wage increases, your conservative base would rather support big oil and coal empires to the detriment of our environment. Wake up conservatives, this hurts you, too.

Now, for the progressive view. Why should we be the only industrial nation without national health care?

Bold overlord issues sweeping Imperial Edict

The stage has just pulled into Deadwood with a sweaty, exhausted team of horses as a bold figure steps down from the carriage and strides to the community bulletin board whereon he holds a crudely scripted notice to the citizenry as he drives in the staples with the butt of his 90 calibre hog leg.

Sutter too busy counting the money to practice medicine

The battle continues over affordable health care, and no place is there more at stake than Crescent City. With a service area of 42,000, average per capita income of $10,741 and 70 percent of the populace earning under $50,000, there is a huge need for a hospital that provides essential medical services at a price that people can afford.

Grand Jury reports yet another partisan attack

I was glad to read Mary Wilson’s Coastal Voices piece in the Aug. 6, 2015 Triplicate. But I am sorry that it became necessary for her to write it.

Front Street looks like we don’t care

Could someone please tell me why Front Street does not get paved? We have a parade that goes down that road and thousands of people see what a mess it is and must just shake their heads.

Grand Jury soap opera a bad image for Del Norte

The whole world is watching, or at least it could be in this age of news going viral, as the high-drama, Grand Jury soap opera plays on and on. What’s next — a high-noon duel on Front Street to prove who has the truest truth and the most-hurt ego? This tit for tat is surely not an image that Del Norte County can be proud of. World peace starts on the homefront.

Targeting Safeway unfair and unwise


Letters to the Editor, Aug. 1, 2015

Bob Berkowitz should heed his firm's findings

The article in last Thursday’s paper, (“Survey: Local voters value honesty”, July 23) is ironic. Why? Because its author, former politician and current campaign consultant Bob Berkowitz recently paid for a full-page ad in this paper (June 25) that was full of untruths and distortion of facts. In addition, his July 2 Coastal Voices op-ed (“Yes we can: Ordinary citizens are making a difference in DN”) was similarly inaccurate, stating: “RHS serves a lot of needs of the area and is not a government program. It is almost entirely self-supporting by the generous donations of Del Norters.” As a former employee, I would challenge that statement, knowing that nearly every program has some form of government funding. For example, the Supportive Living Services Program is fully funded by the Redwood Coast Regional Center, Harrington House and the Food Bank are funded by Community Development Block Grant monies, and the Work Force Center is government funded as well.

Get rid of Gitlin to start work on eliminating blight

I have had several disagreements with Safeway’s staff when it parroted the company line to me rather than answering my question straightforwardly. However, I find it to be a rather well-run store, and I have never encountered “blight” in my hundreds of trips to its parking lot.
