The Post editorial “The UFT’s War on Kids” (July 15) can and must be repeated with respect to each blue metropolis held hostage by its trainer and municipal unions.
For instance, a case might be made that the Chicago trainer union is on a par with New York’s academics union in the way in which that the official wants of scholar and mother or father are completely ignored. There is rarely a proposal, coverage or technique that’s in any approach student-centric.
The biggest menace going through America right now isn’t inflation or local weather change, and it doesn’t come from Russia or China. The actual menace comes from the ever-increasing energy of the bloated, unaccountable public-sector unions on the federal, state and native degree. And please neglect about any politician at any degree holding them in examine.
It is effectively previous the time to ban collective bargaining in any respect ranges of presidency.

After studying Craig McCarthy’s wonderful article, “Fentanyl places NYC to the check” (July 17), I got here to the next conclusion: The United States doesn’t have a cartel drawback, it has an dependancy drawback.
As McCarthy identified, it’s all about provide and demand. The cartels are offering a product — not in contrast to alcohol firms (why else would each celeb stick their title on a bottle of booze?) or tobacco firms.
Both industries have been killing Americans far slower for a lot longer. Maybe they need to incorporate the Drug Enforcement Administration into the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

RFK’s COVID rant
The declare of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. that the COVID-19 virus was engineered to spare Ashkenazi Jews from its lethal results struck me as being far-fetched (“RFK: COV could also be ethnically ‘focused,’” July 16).
As an Ashkenazi Jew myself, I spent eight days on a COVID ground in a New York City hospital close to demise in February 2021.
As he’s the grandson of the notoriously antisemitic Joseph P. Kennedy, it’s obvious that the apple doesn’t fall removed from the tree. It’s time for individuals of excellent will to tune out this bigoted nut job as soon as and for all.

Attack on elder
I’m wishing a speedy restoration to the poor lady who was assaulted each bodily and verbally for admonishing a gang of disrespectful, fare-evading ladies (“ ‘Karen’ assault arrest,” July 20).
From the picture displayed in Thursday’s newspaper, her attacker was a hulking lady, whom The Post mercifully described as “heavy-set.”
This callous particular person intervened by pepper-spraying the 68-year-old girl and calling her a “Karen.”
Law enforcement ought to spherical up the turnstile jumpers and the nasty attacker and lock all of them up. It’s time our mayor acquired robust on crime.

Do actors truly suppose they carry out a priceless service (“Poison Paused,” Dan McLaughlin, PostOpinion, July 15)?
If so, then their inflated egos are in for a shock. We can all dwell with out new reveals and awards ceremonies, that are largely simply woke propaganda automobiles anyway.
I solely watch information, sports activities and outdated motion pictures and haven’t been to the cinema for years, and there at the moment are loads of streaming providers exhibiting international reveals. These actors are mainly “Bud Light’ing” themselves.
