Just a bad dream

Change our local address in Wysox Township using the name of the city as Wysox Township rather than Towanda or Rome, or using the zip code for Towanda or Rome? What a nightmare. This means one must change all printed envelopes, letterheads, invoices and any personal stationary. Not to mention changing all addresses for federal and state entities and anyone you do business with including credit cards, banks, stocks. All licenses must be changed: professional, business, drivers license and all vehicle registrations. Then getting those you notified to comply adds to the nightmare.

Store parking

With all the stores that are closing like Payless and JCPenney, I’m asking why somebody doesn’t say something about the parking spots at Ben Franklin. I’d think somebody would want to keep a store open around here.

United Scams of America

These retailers that are pulling out of malls and strip malls closing stores, claiming that they’re going bankrupt is nothing but a scam. They’re doing it because they won’t have to pay employees paychecks and benefits. This country’s turning into nothing but a bunch of scam artists and thieves. It makes me sick.

The point?

I agree with people against the mailing address in Wysox Township or whatever it’s going to be called. What was the point of everybody changing their address number in the county a few years ago? Tell these dispatchers and stuff to do their job and get with the program.

RE: Veterans Memorial Park Assoc.

When is enough enough? If you’re really concerned about the veterans, take that money and do work for the ones that really need it. Another add-on is not needed.

RE: Ben Franklin closing

I was just in there about an hour ago and was disappointed to find that there was nothing in stock that I went to look for and yet I understood the store was to be closing right around the middle of April. If that’s the case, they’re certainly doing it well, but I would think they’d let people know. There was ample parking and it was a Saturday afternoon. I think it would be a great thing to have the place close.

RE: Towanda burn ban

For people who are worried about not being able to burn their newspapers, you have Asylum Township, you have Wysox Township, and over in Osram. There’s recyclables. There’s no reason to have to burn your papers. These are close facilities and anyone can do it.

Relaxing time

I just read that the Trump administration has filled only 22 of the 553 key positions that require Senate confirmation. I guess we can’t expect too much from this guy because he needs to golf to break the strain and tension of relaxing all those weekends at Mar-a-Lago.

Choose your words wisely

Guess who said this: “Glad our arrogant president is enjoying his taxpayer funded golf outing after the announcing the U.S. should take military action against Syria.” Mr. Sean Hannity, Sept. 3, 2013 tweet.

New rule

A president should not be allowed to bomb a country without first proving that he can find it on a map.

Look at yourself

Somebody called in the other day and said that even if Trump is a serial philanderer and sexual assaulter and even if his wife goes on TV and lies for him, they still are glad they voted for him. What does that say about you? Guess you belong in that basket of deplorables.

Do you think Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer will have negative repercussions for President Trump?
