Letters to the Editor — Oct. 24, 2021

Stiffing retireesThe Municipal Labor Council sold out 250,000 retired city workers by colluding with private insurance companies to weaken the excellent health coverage they have been receiving for many years (“Fix, Don’t End, City’s Health Savings,” Editorial, Oct. 20)
The United Federation of Teachers and other municipal unions have sacrificed the interests of their retirees by promoting Medicare Advantage as a better health-care choice than SeniorCare, the fine Medicare/Medigap plan they were receiving.

The End of an Era of American Gymnastics

Do not let her ballerina bone structure and ethereal hair-halo fool you into thinking 21-year-old Russian gymnast Angelina Melnikova is anything other than an absolute beast. Last Thursday, Melnikova returned to Japan—a scant two months after nabbing team gold and individual all-around bronze at the Tokyo Olympics—and hit great routines on all four events to claim the title of 2021 World All-Around Champion.

AMANDA PLATELL: A cynical mob are betraying the doctors who DO care for their patients

PLATELL’S PEOPLE: Cynical mob betraying the doctors who do care for patients

This week, when I had my legs waxed (bear with me), my beautician spotted a suspicious-looking mole on my thigh.
She told me to get it checked by a doctor immediately as I have a history of skin cancer.
It took a while, but I finally got through to my GP’s surgery — to be told I could have a phone ‘appointment’ with him in four hours’ time.

I Must Be ‘Really Stupid’ Because Rudy Is F*cked

There are many mysteries in American life, but few more puzzling than Rudy Giuliani.
“America’s mayor” has been under federal investigation since roughly the Pliocene, though in August he did promise us that “I committed no crime,” and then the polymath added: “If you think I did commit a crime, you’re probably really stupid because you don’t know who I am.”
Case closed!
I mean, just because Rudy’s pals are on trial doesn’t mean he’s in any trouble. You’d have to be “really stupid” to think such a thing.

Greg Gutfeld: Racism is a public health crisis, if you’re a racist

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!
Happy Thursday everyone. And boy is it a happy one. Because I’ve almost made it through the week without being stabbed or shot. Although twice, security stopped Dana Perino just in time. 
But all of us here, in this studio, having something in common. We aren’t dead – at least yet! ‘Cuz in New York City, not getting assaulted is akin to winning the lottery.
It’s a violent city right now. This morning I saw a rat with a black eye. Murders spiked big time — jumping from 319 in 2019 to 500 in 2020.

Why Trump’s pathetic social media platform is probably doomed

Seven months ago, an adviser announced that Trump would launch a social media platform in “two or three months.” Though it’s a bit late, the product has arrived (though it has apparently been temporarily pulled for a quick retooling). The good news is that it’s comically stupid in almost every way imaginable.

Fire Fauci… And Then Prosecute Him

“Sen. Paul, with all due respect, you are entirely, entirely and completely incorrect,” Dr. Anthony Fauci told Sen. Rand Paul on May 11 of this year. “The NIH has not ever, and does not now, fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute.” 
This was in the midst of a lengthy exchange between the two doctors over Paul’s line of questioning over research that may have eventually led to the development and release of the deadly Covid-19 virus that has crippled this nation’s economy for nearly two years.

Why Governments Hate Cryptocurrency

Recently the Chinese government declared cryptocurrency illegal. In Washington, policymakers have questioned its legality and legitimacy.  Sen. Elizabeth Warren went so far as to call cryptocurrencies “a fourth-rate alternative to real currency.” As of this writing, the president is purportedly working on an executive order to crack down on crypto.
But why? To answer, it’s best to begin with a question. How many dollars do you have? Before you go digging through your pockets, let me save you the trouble. 
The answer is zero.  You have no dollars.
