Thomas’ haters

Rich Lowry interpreted the consistent, longstanding attack on Judge Clarence Thomas from the left (“Doubting Thomas”, Post Opinion, April 2).
Now Democrats are attacking him for his wife’s views. They will stoop to any low to get rid of him.

What does that tell us? That Thomas must be a damn good judge. If he was weak, there was no reason to get rid of him. He has anything but proven himself. For my part, I thank God that this great conservative continues to serve.

fix carbon

As an article “Do or Dioxide” (April 3) points out that we do not yet have the technologies needed to remove carbon emissions from the atmosphere.

However, this does not mean that we should not do everything we can to reduce the input of new carbon into the atmosphere.

The article evokes the image of a bathtub with the drain plug pulled out, which nevertheless overflows because the faucets are running at full blast. Let’s address those faucets, so to speak, as we figure out how to handle all that water in and out of the tub.

The best approach appears to be an economic one — a national price for carbon that increases annually while all collected fees are returned to every American in equal monthly dividends.

The higher cost of using fossil fuels would spur new technological advances, while the dividends would ease the transition to a clean, renewable energy economy. No time to waste – those CO2 emissions are still flowing.

NYU nightmare

As the parent of an NYU grad and grandparent of two NYU grads, I’m so lucky they attended school when they did (“NYU Sale Amid Vagrancy” 3rd of April).

Students who attend now risk being accosted by tramps and pelted with homeless people’s eggs. You pay $80,000 per year for this privilege.

Graduates of 2022: If you don’t receive an acceptance letter from NYU, be thankful. You are the lucky ones.

children from the class

There will always be children who want to drop out of school, but 40% (“Kick to Class” 3rd of April)? These numbers indicate real problems.

I was a member of four unions, most recently the American Association of University Professors. Today’s teachers’ unions have outsized power and have done everything in their power to keep students out of school during the pandemic.

However, students also need safe schools, neighborhoods, roads and transportation. If New York City wants its kids to go to school, you solve the problems. Vote on the left and the madness they bring to the table. Fix the schools and the crime and absenteeism will take care of themselves.

Redraw voter map

In 2019, the US Supreme Court closed the door on federal courts hearing cases of partisan gerrymandering, ruling that there was no workable standard for the courts (“Highul disses the voters” Editorial, April 4).

But the Post suggests the state’s redistribution plans could go to federal courts if the state courts don’t reject the new congressional and state cards.

The case, filed in state court, focused on state, not federal, constitutional claims. And if the challengers cannot fault the state cards for racist gerrymandering or racist vote dilution, the door of the Federal Court of Justice remains closed to a new challenge.
