Letters to the Editor for April 21, 2010

 


Let’s work together, not apart
To the editor:

 

It was interesting to see so many fine people gathered to try and “fix” what’s wrong with this country. But I have a question for those of you that are attending or may attend one of these Tea Party rallies: Where were you about eight years ago when the Bush administration decided to attack Iraq for nothing but lies (where my son died for those lies)?  Why did you not get involved then? Where was your outrage then? Why didn’t you speak out then? We, as a country, have spent over $717 billion fighting a war that could have been stopped before it began if those same fine people would have spoken out then. Nearly 5,000 Americans have died as a result of invading a country that had done nothing to us. If these same fine people would get outraged about the wars we’re fighting maybe we could bring our troops home (and support them when they get here) and use all that money we’ve been spending in Iraq for our own country and our own citizens.

We must use the Earth’s resources

To the editor:

Some people seem to think the worst is over, and I hope they are right, but I’m very skeptical. There appears to be very few people in government who have any concept of what has caused our problem. As a result, most government actions have had very little benefit to the overall problems; in fact many groups are working hard on projects that will hurry the breakdown of what’s left of our economy.

To get down to basics, we cannot continue to spend more than we earn forever. Printing money won’t solve the problems, it only postpones them. Someday there will be a day of reckoning.
