Buy a stamp, save a person’s job

People who think government post office jobs are the means to a strong economy are one of the reasons this area's economy went down the toilet and has stayed there. Meanwhile, they vilify a private industry that provides more products to us than they'll ever realize - oil makes a lot more than gasoline - as well as real jobs that don't depend on taxpayers to prop them up while they lose billions to inefficiency and outdated services that no one wants or needs.

Until we learn Econ 101, we're screwed.

Will Mahoning Valley hear the words ‘And they’re off!’?

The Rust Belt needs to stop kidding themselves into believing casinos are the new economy. No one is going to travel to gamble here, passing several casinos along the way, so the people who will gamble there are locals. Many will lose money they can't afford because there is no real economy here, anymore. They will do nothing to grow the economy.

We need a business friendly climate to attract them to this area, not high tax rates and unions waiting to pounce on them as soon as they get here. The problem is, we've never accepted the real reasons why industry left here in the first place. We've spent decades blaming everyone but ourselves, and where has that gotten us?

2011: A tale of two political bosses

Trumbull and Mahoning counties have been "Democratic strongholds" for several decades. How have things been going here the last several decades?

Those who fail to learn from history...

Will Ohio Republicans be fair in congressional redistricting?

When the GOP wins, suddenly the calls for "fairness" and "working together" abound. When the Dems win, it's "elections have consequences, we won, get over it".

The GOP should use the power afforded them by the electorate. That is the "fair" thing to do, whether the Democrats like it or not.

Buckeyes (barely) break SEC curse

Nice headline. A more accurate one would read:

"Buckeyes win 6th BCS bowl, more than any other school (including SEC teams)"

Know what season means

If we're talking about "what the season means", we'll go back to the pagan festivals usurped by the early church and the gods prior to Jesus who just happened to share his, alleged, birthday: Attis, Dionysus, Osiris, and Mithra. The Babylonians celebrated Saturnalia long before the bible during this week and the Romans designated Christ's birthday as the 25th to make it easier to convert the masses to Christianity.

Now that we know what we're really celebrating, Merry Christmas!

The reason for the season

The "reason for the season" goes back to the pagan festivals usurped by the early church and the gods prior to Jesus who just happened to share his, alleged, birthday: Attis, Dionysus, Osiris, and Mithra. The Babylonians celebrated Saturnalia long before the bible during this week and the Romans designated Christ's birthday as the 25th to make it easier to convert the masses to Christianity.

‘Dangerous’ postal box change sparks anger in Boardman

How about putting your letters in your mailbox at home and letting the carrier take them? Or you can get out of your car and walk into the post office.

There are lots of things to complain about in the world. This isn't one of them.

Return to Christmas truth

If we're going to the "truth" of Christmas, we'd go back to the pagan festivals usurped by the early church and the gods prior to Jesus who just happened to share his, alleged, birthday: Attis, Dionysus, Osiris, and Mithra. The Babylonians celebrated Saturnalia long before the bible during this week and the Romans designated Christ's birthday as the 25th to make it easier to convert the masses to Christianity.

Now that we know what we're really celebrating, Merry Christmas!
