I was happy to see Kenosha County Executive Jim Kreuser’s article in the May 19 paper concerning the Wisconsin legislature’s decision to remove Medicaid expansion dollars from the state budget this year.
Gerrymandering — them’s fightin’ words. This should be an illegal practice of reconfiguring precinct boundaries for the benefit of one party over the other. (Most generally used by Republicans according the my research). The purpose is to disenfranchise voters unlucky enough to reside in the…
We have a president who has an army of followers who believe that his every word is “the gospel truth.” Some of his followers even believe he was sent by God to heal our nation.
I’d like to thank Mark Stalker for offering himself as a sacrifice to provide more evidence of how badly Wisconsin’s legislative districts are gerrymandered; unintended consequences and all that rot.
It was good to see guest columnist Jim Krauser’s op-ed Sunday. Medicare expansion is certainly an issue that needs much more attention.
I keep ringing the same bell. Our politicians (alias I spend to keep myself in office) are out to ring up another trillion dollar (can you fathom that amount) deficit this year and next.
Child struck by errant ball dies on way to hospital. This headline easily could happen at our Kenosha Sports Complex at 4200 39th Avenue.
Everyone who believes that national chain stores should pay their fair share of property taxes should be not just dismayed, but angry, about Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos’ refusal to even consider a vote on a bipartisan proposal to end the “dark store exemption.”
Liz Snyder’s recent writings about the comics were entertaining and informative. She is “right on” regarding John Hambrock. He is an excellent cartoonist and a good person.
Thank you to all who appeared at the rally Wednesday evening outside the Kenosha County Detention Center in support of student pastor Betty Rendon of Racine.
The comments Kenosha Alderman Curt Wilson made on April 19 in the Southeast Labor Times about Republican voters being racist and having no morals is typical of a hate-filled Democrat who is still mourning the losses of Hillary Clinton and Lisa Neubauer.
As the Pringle Nature Center chairman of the board, I would like to respond to a recent VOP letter questioning the hiring of a new naturalist at the center.
As a citizen of the United States it is our responsibility to stay informed about the state of our union.
With the opening day of the new adventure park coming soon to Bristol Woods County Park/Pringle Nature Center, I’d like everyone to really ask themselves — is it really worth it?
After reading the opinion article on high school education, I would like to express my views. I believe I had a high school that motivated students to grow and learn who they are and what they seek to become.
There are some reasons that I could never vote Democratic again. The views of some Democrats are sinful and outlandish. This is what I have observed watching the news:
Stuart Rothenberg of CQ-Roll Call, in his May 8 column in the Kenosha News, lists some of the items that define “Trumpism.”
Great article in the Kenosha News on April 26: “A different kind of signing day.”
President Trump recently again claimed that his father’s birthplace was Germany. Actually, his dad was born in the Bronx and his grandfather in the Fatherland. They’re both buried in Queens, and it’s possible that in reaction they rolled over in their graves, the father yelling “blockhead” a…
Kudos to Carthage College’s recent production of “Flora the Red Menace.” As a professional actor and director, I know what’s good, and this production was terrific.
Joe Biden’s the grabbing, feeling, kissing from behind candidate for the Democrats. He’s the guy who mishandled the Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas Supreme Court hearing and the Robert Bork hearing that became synonymous with the term “borked,” where he enraged both supporters and critics with ai…
When I went to college in the 1950s, tuition and state universities could be handled with summer jobs and a part-time job during the school year. Now, only children of wealthy parents can afford to go to college without taking on huge loans.
A few days after the Mueller Report was released, a VOP writer made an outrageous and scurrilous comparison between Hitler, a dictator, and President Trump.
The headline on a recent story in the Kenosha News stated, “Judge denies Republicans’ attempt to join abortion lawsuit.”
Gerrymandering — This should be an illegal practice of reconfiguring precinct boundaries for the benefit of one party over the other.
The state budget is a moral document that should reflect the people’s values to invest in children in our communities.
In 1992 my new husband and I moved to Wisconsin from California so I could accept a faculty position at Gateway Technical College.
On April 18, subscribers of the Kenosha News were once again treated to the opined words of Sen. Bob Wirch, as written in the Voice of the People platform, describing other duly elected politicians in a negative manner.
The lesson taught by the November midterms versus the 14 percent turnout April elections is that old people vote all the time, rain, shine and every election. Older, more conservative, less accepting of change and typically straight ticket voters. Republicans understand this and smaller turn…
The recent race for Wisconsin Supreme Court proves that money buys votes in elections.
The political parties of this great nation have forgotten their constituents and what they are in office for. The battleground for the parties is the control of the United States government.
In stark contrast to Bill Cheney’s Voice of the People, the Mueller report portrays an unethical and criminal president. He claims the Democrats will run away from the report. On the contrary, Democrats and freedom-loving Americans want to know more.
I wanted to write about Medicare for all, but the crazy people running for president want me to talk about student debt.
I cannot believe that this is true. Our newly elected governor is going to veto a bill on infanticide. When did Wisconsin become such an uncaring state?
I watched a TV news report of a Trump rally. What struck me was those in attendance were standing and shouting as they listened to President Trump spew out his nasty rhetoric against his many critics.
The Foxconn deal, manufactured several years ago by Gov. Scott Walker and President Trump (who labeled it the 8th Wonder of the World), may well result in one of the worst boondoggles in the state’s history. Every week brings bad news.
Like many residents of Kenosha and the surrounding area, I was shocked and saddened to hear about the tragic passing of members of the Rizzo family.
It’s very troubling to read the thoughts of some VOP writers.
When our elected representatives in Washington, D.C., can’t or refuse to do their jobs, we the people must stand up and take action. That time has now come. I’m so mad I could spit nails.
Sen. Bernie Sanders made an appearance on Fox News and dismissed his status of being a millionaire and still charged President Trump as an evil money grabber.
There is a very important special election for the 64th Assembly District on Tuesday, April 30. This district covers almost all of the village and town of Somers, the north side of Kenosha and part of the south side. Call 262-653-2552 to find out if you are eligible to vote in this election.
As much as the Mueller Report has been in the national news, most Americans seem to miss its most important point. Most of the president’s supporters only focus on the lack of proof of collusion. Most of the president’s adversaries only focus on the possibility of collusion.
Ever since the 2016 Presidential election, Democrats have been suffering through a severe case of cognitive dissonance.
The Madison New Math: Again, we hear the time is right; the public demands and the majority of those polled support legal access to marijuana.
I have to respond to the April 18 VOP by Sen. Bob Wirch claiming that there is bitter partisan divide. What’s that old saying — it takes one to know one.
This past weekend, April 13, I attended the production of “High School Musical Jr.” performed by Lance Middle School Drama Club. My granddaughter was in the play and I know how hard she worked with all the rehearsals and also keeping up with her school work.
The recent Bernie Sanders spectacle expanding Medicare for all is simply “pie in the sky.”
Single-payer health care opponents claim that liberals want the government to ration health care and make medical decisions for you while conservatives want those decisions to be between you and your doctor. This argument is backwards.
Let’s make something clear: Peter Barca is not currently the Secretary of the state Department of Revenue. He is the Secretary-designee.
We, the residents along Highway KR, are now poised to join the ranks of the “expendables.” You know, the ones that “get in the way” of politicians’ economic development dreams.
