Editorial falsely described scope of Trump policy

I had the misfortune of reading your editorial, “Mr. Trump, this is not who we are,” (Jan 31). In it you described President Trump’s immigration ban as “an across-the-board ban on immigrants from Muslim countries.” How can you be so dishonest with your readers, or even yourselves? There are approximately 47 predominantly Muslim nations, and Trump has temporarily banned seven of them for three months. And these are the same countries singled out by Obama for special treatment. As I write, there are thousands of Muslim visitors from Egypt, Jordan, Bahrain, Qatar, Lebanon, etc. entering this country. 

Your intellectual dishonesty sickens me. The thought of Americans reading this propaganda nonsense and believing it, are not thoughts but nightmares. I know you’re not ignorant, so it must be that you’re purposely trying to mislead the readers. You should be ashamed of yourselves. I regret that I enjoy keeping up on local news and sports, otherwise I would never touch a copy of The Day again.

This theory is based on 20 years of war in Vietnam (1955 to 1975). The draft did not include college students until they graduated. As the war progressed, students began to agitate against the war: they didn’t want to be drafted on graduation. The above were serious...

All this time off for employees hurts small businesses, eliminates good jobs

Connecticut recently passed a law guaranteeing paid family and medical leave for up to 12 weeks at full pay. Someone needs to explain why every employee who gets a paycheck will pay an additional tax for this benefit whether they use it or not, except for government or municipal employees who...
