Letter to the editor: Google searches becoming increasingly unproductive

Posted on February 14, 2019 |
By Peter Grant



Can anyone tell me why Google internet searches have become so useless? For my inquiry “Vermont Statutes Online” the return from Google were:

1.  Kansas Governors Debate 2018

2.  Something about Nova Scotia Laws

3.  Lawful Hacking

4.  Native American Housing

Where does Google come up with these answers that have nothing to do with the question?

Letter to the editor: Border wall an ineffective answer to real problems

Posted on December 31, 2018 |
By Peter Grant



We can be sure that someone has tried to tell Trump that the biggest entry to the U.S. of drugs and aliens will not be closed by a wall since that entry is right through our customs checking. There are too many trucks coming through our borders for customs officials to check more than a small percentage. So they guess which ones to check. Trucks that have drugs well hidden and trucks with humans cramped in hot, airless boxes seeking entry to the U.S.

It would cost a small percentage of his wall to train more customs agents for our borders.

Letter to the editor: Transition to electric needed

Posted on December 27, 2018 |
By Peter Grant



I have had an electric car for a year now and am mostly happy with it, on warm sunny days — a Chevy Volt.

It gets about the equivalent of 100 miles a gallon with $2.50 for a gallon of gas and $0.15 per kWh in electric mode. Or 45 miles on a gallon of gas in gas mode. This doesn’t really offset the lease of $310/month.

Letter to the editor: Trump's reverse 'Midas touch'

Posted on October 25, 2018 |
By Peter Grant



Desperate people are leaving Central America due to lack of effective government, which allows crime and killings since they lack money to control the criminals. How does Trump help this problem? By offering help in fixing the crime problem? No. He wants to make it worse by cutting what help they are getting.

Trump makes so much of what he touches, worse. The reverse Midas touch. How much worse will he make the world before we can stop him?

Letter to the editor: Kavanaugh's tears rated by onions

Posted on October 8, 2018 |
By Peter Grant



We need a new rating system, number of onions needed to produce tears.

Kavanaugh’s tears during his anti-Dr. Ford testimony should rate 3 onions. He put on a good show, so that many people believe him.

And Senator Lindsey Graham should be voted out of office.

Letter to the editor: Trump overlooks China's action

Posted on September 6, 2018 |
By Peter Grant



The New York Times recently reported that China is building a new Island at the tip of Malysia in the major shipping lane between Asia and Europe with an unwilling Malaysia that owes China too much to say no.  This city will have a major shipping port.  This is the new Forest City.

It didn’t mention that the US is doing anything.  Trump has probably not heard of Malaysia and shipping in that area.

China 1, U.S. under Trump 0.

Letter to the editor: Trump fans lose with his policies

Posted on June 21, 2018 |
By Peter Grant



It is strange to see that those who will greatly suffer from Trump policies are leading the charge to support him. Trump is trying to kill health insurance programs. Talking about killing Social Security. Killing the climate saving agreement. Making it hard for poor people to vote. Starting a trade war where our workers will loose jobs and things will get more expensive. Lowering the morality of the nation by his example. The harmful list is too long. Praising our enemies and stepping on toes of our foreign friends. Is there an explanation for this self immolation?

Letter to the editor: Trump is setting our country back

Posted on May 14, 2018 |
By Peter Grant



My French and German friends say that Trump is becoming a has-been and bringing the U.S. down from it past world leadership with him. Since Trump is tearing down good world agreements, he can no longer be trusted, and his ideas don’t make sense.

How long will it take for a good president to re-build the good will and prestige the U.S. used to have in pre-Trump days? How soon can we get rid of this dangerous fool?

Letter to the editor: Trump ignoring threat from China

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Peter Grant



Trump has met his match and doesn’t know it, Xi Jinping, the smiling leader of China. This man is absolute ruler of China and he is extending his authority over many parts of the world by smiling and promising to work together for a better world. He is also building roads and helping build these countries. Like Tibet, once in control of a country it becomes part of China and the people there are no longer independent, but under the iron rule of Xi and China. Instead of being wary of China, Trump is all on edge over North Korea. While Trump sleeps, China increases its power.
