No pay raise here

More milestones in the Trump economic miracle: Robinson+Cole, a large Connecticut law firm, has announced the layoffs of 30 associates and staff. The remaining associates and counsels will all be getting a $10,000 pay cut. That’s not exactly the $4,000 pay raise promised to all employees by President Donald Trump and U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin due to the Trump tax cuts.

Look in the mirror, voters

In the last 43 years there have been two Republican governors: the present one and a one-term governor in 2003. I believe there has been one Republican-majority legislature during that time — the current one.

Group-led outrage

A paraphrase from Mark Twain: “Individuals can act incredibly stupid, but they can’t hold a candle to the stupidity produced by a group of individuals in a conference room.”

Palisades a backyard gem

The Palisades region of the Kentucky River stretching across the southern border of Fayette County is a gem worth exploring for all Kentuckians. We have been blessed with the opportunity to work for Boone Creek Outdoors on Old Richmond Road in Lexington for the past year.

Every year school districts look at the colleges and universities for those bright, young graduates to fill openings at their schools. It is a competitive race. These graduates are also looking for jobs, especially the ones that pay best.

Jabs at Ky. teachers unfair

Some have criticized teachers in Fayette and other Kentucky counties for not being in classrooms on a Friday in February. As a retired educator, I believe that criticism is unjust and I applaud administrators in Fayette and other districts for the support shown for teachers.

No meds, no tape for this vet

I am a 100-percent service-connected disabled veteran of the U.S. Army and I suffer with chronic pain. The Department of Veterans Affairs has pushed its patients to find alternative ways to combat pain. Forty percent of veterans have been taken off pain medication, just like me.

Trump a powerhouse

President Donald Trump will have accomplished more in his first 18 months than did his four predecessors in their collective twenty-eight years. Regardless of politics, any fair-minded person must admit that he is a dynamo.

Diagnosis: Trump delusional

I believe that President Donald Trump is showing signs of clinical psychosis and should be evaluated. I’m not a psychiatrist, but I am a retired physician and did rotations in psychiatry in medical school. I ended up as a proctologist, which may be even more befitting in assessing this situation.

Christians or racists? Moral foundation getting flimsy

As someone interested in applying spirituality to my life, watching the moral death of Christianity in the United States is horrible. I see alleged Christians supporting a man who spoke of sexually assaulting women with a tone of pride. They seem to feel saying things like “I didn’t vote for him to be my pastor” or “Clinton did worse” justifies their hypocrisy.

Sen. Wise aided Ky. pharmacies

Sen. Max Wise (R-Campbellsville) is a passionate sponsor of Senate Bill 5, which was signed by Gov. Matt Bevin, and will provide legislators, taxpayers and pharmacists with much-needed information about how Medicaid Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) and the pharmacy middlemen — pharmacy benefit managers — spend taxpayer money on pharmacy benefits for Medicaid recipients.
