Suffolk Votes

September 22, 2020

Students are one of the largest and most diverse demographics in the country, but also have the lowest voter turnout. That’s true in a typical election year, and with a pandemic occurring, student voting rates could be abysmal this year. In order for democracy to function, we must ensure as many people v...

Letter to the Editor: Political parties clash: College campuses seem to be majority liberal, leaving conservative ideas in the shadows

April 17, 2018

I see that some intolerant liberal students are going to protest the upcoming appearance of conservative speaker Christina Hoff Sommers. Yet, another example of intolerant political correctness run amok. (We can't have too much political diversity!) Trump handily beat Clinton in part because a lot o...

Letter to the Editor: Trump The Terrible

March 27, 2018

President Trump's character flaws are overwhelming his administration and placing our country in jeopardy. Former CIA Director John Brennan  referred to Trump as " unstable, inept, inexperienced, and also unethical ". I add divisive, chaotic, and terrible judgement. In the past 15 months the fol...

To the Editor: I felt it was important to comment on the recent Editor’s Word [Feb. 28, 2018] column that appeared on the Journal’s opinion page, which mentioned rumors of inappropriate relationships between staff and students, and students’ feeling they cannot speak out. Sexual harassment and abus...

Letter to the Editor: A preventable shooting tragedy

March 6, 2018

The Parkland, FL shooter had a history of violent behavior. Police were called to his house many times, but they did not arrest him because the school board had an agreement with the police not to arrest any students..

Tweeting away the presidency

September 27, 2017

We currently have problems with multiple countries that could threaten our national security. Evidently, Russia meddled in our election for president, and continues to hack into U.S. and European government and industry systems.  Also, Russia occupies eastern Ukraine. China laid claim to the South China Se...

North Korea continues to expand its nuclear weapons program and is making progress in developing an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of reaching the Western U.S. It is working on miniaturizing nuclear weapons to fit on ICBMs by early 2018, and it threatens to attack the U.S. with nuclear...

Donald Moskowitz

April 19, 2017

President Trump has pointed out the strong linkage between China and North Korea, and he correctly assumes China can influence North Korea’s weapons development program.  We must work with China on resolving this situation, and also on the Chinese encroachment in the South China Sea and the trade defici...

Donald Moskowitz

April 12, 2017

As a Navy veteran and a strong supporter of our military, I commend President Trump for initiating a program to rebuild our military with a defense budget increase of $54 billion. However, it should be decreased by $1.3 billion and that amount added to the Coast Guard budget within the Department of...
