Editorial: Trump is the the 'opioid of the masses'

Posted on October 6, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The Washington Post’s Daily 202, an online blog, recently posted a compelling tease: “Want to know why Trump’s winning Ohio,” it asked. “Drink a beer with ‘the deplorables’ in Boehner’s old district.”

It got me, and it was worth the read.

Middletown, Ohio is a depressed industrial town in southwestern Ohio, and reports James Hohmann, Hillary supporters are thinner than hen’s teeth. He has a beer with a couple machinists in their 40s and shares their perspective:

Editorial: It's a year to break the mold

Posted on October 3, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



What does it mean when USA Today, for the first time in its 34 year history, breaks its pledge not to endorse a candidate in the US presidential race and writes, by unanimous consent among its editorial board, that Trump is “unfit to be president?”

Let USA Today explain:

Editorial: It couldn't happen here

Posted on September 29, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Of the many alarming things about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, his sense of entitlement and infallibility and his embrace of totalitarian authority should worry all Americans, and particularly those who are quick to say they cherish their freedom from big government. There is, after all, no more oppressive form of government than a dictatorship that lords over its people.

Editorial: The good news about the Vt. economy is in all income sectors

By Angelo S. Lynn



Here’s the good news from the U.S. Census in data released last week: The media household income in Vermont rose 5.1 percent last year. Low-income households — those making up the bottom 20 percent — rose even higher, gaining 8.5 percent, while the top 20 percent rose 7.6 percent and top 5 percent rose 10.5 percent.

Editorial: Rutland's strife over refugee status is every town's concern

Posted on September 22, 2016 |

In Rutland, the struggles that town and city have gone through in its reckoning to become a refugee resettlement site provide important lessons other Vermont communities seeking similar refugee status should consider.

Editorial: Our polar opposite views of political reality

Posted on September 7, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Sen. Bernie Sanders thrills liberals, moderates and even conservatives in a way that Hillary Clinton can only dream about — and it all has to do with the perception of honesty. When Bernie speaks, people believe him. When Hillary talks, many hear only lies, half-truths and plans to scheme more riches into her and Bill’s pockets. And then there is Trump: When the Donald talks, it’s all self-important blather with almost nothing based on fact. And yet each political camp believes in their candidate over the other.

Editorial: Trump and the threat within

Posted on August 22, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The absurdity of today’s electorate teeters on the surreal. Trump supporters, in particular, defy rational thought: For much of the past year, they have sanctioned Trump’s outrageous statements, off-color remarks, racist and bigoted comments, and political positions that are often contrary to American principles — and then there is his obsessive compulsion to tell bald-faced lies, and repeat them over-and-over even when he knows they are untrue.

And yet, for many of these same Americans it is Democrat Hillary Clinton whom they believe is untrustworthy.

Editorial: Preserving Porter's viability

Posted on August 18, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In America, losing one’s sense of autonomy runs strongly against our individualistic character; it tears at the fabric of our cultural heritage. We are a nation born of small villages, proud of our services, and reluctant to let go of what became community institutions. We cling to our small town independence and bemoan the loss of autonomy when the inherent inefficiency compromises an institution’s viability.
 

Editorial: Defining the Olympic spirit

Posted on August 15, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



These Olympic games may be the perfect distraction — and contrast — to the political embarrassment that has otherwise dominated the national news.

Rather than seeing the worst of ourselves as reflected in Mr. Trump — his insults, sarcasm, put-downs, exaggerations and pathological lying — the nation sees the best of itself in its Olympic athletes.
