Letter: National health care alive and well

National health care (Obama) is alive and well and is the law of the land. General Motors is still in business and going strong. Eat your hearts out, Republicans and Wall Street. Eat your heart out, Rush.

What we need in America is more taverns and less churches and the Republican Party to stop their church demagoguery in politics.

Abortions today, abortions tomorrow and forever; and we need laws — no protests or gathering within 100 yards of any abortion clinic, medical office or hospital, or you’re a terrorist headed for jail.

Do I hear a sound? These protesters meet all the characteristics of terrorists (murder, arson and physical violence). No one can deny this.

As for the economy being driven by consumers? Forget about it. Without labor, you don’t have an economy. Unions are nearly gone, and prices are higher than ever. So, how did all that union busting work out? It will get worse as Wall Street continues to climb to record highs, where the Wall Street crowd continues to stuff their pockets. And the consumer makes less and less.

And, don’t give me that bull about T-can autos (porto-toilets with wheels) selling for $16,000. Those “run around town” autos were available in the 1960s, before all that blame-game union bashing.

All those European countries we are trying to emulate pay their employees chump-change wages and are failures when measured against the USA, and what we were. They were all trickle-down lovers and wouldn’t know a consumer-driven economy if they saw one.

  • Letter: Dr. David and Kay Mares are local treasures Throughout history we have had treasures that were not appreciated until years or centuries after their time. The lost art of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. The terra cotta men of China. Vincent Van Gogh was a failing, starving artist in his time. Now his works are some of the world’s most valued. Madison County has a prize of its own that should be recognized in its time.

  • Letter: Anderson's annexed areas still lack business On July 10, 2014, at the Anderson City Council meeting, the executor of the estate was shut off from speaking, because she did not live in Adams Township, and the person from Adams Township tried to get up and speak was not allowed to. The council rushed the vote for zoning the land for business.

  • Letter: Birth control, abortion should be woman's choice Why are Republicans so gung-ho on restricting birth control and abortion? That's easy. Republican legislators are so unpopular because they don't legislate and literally block all bills that would help the middle and lower income classes.

  • Bannon, Tom Viewpoint: Paramount is an investment that is paying dividends About 25 years ago the citizens of Anderson made a decision that would have a long lasting impact on the community. Instead of saving the old Paramount Theatre, which had fallen into serious disrepair, it was decided that the easy and prudent decision was to get rid of the building to create additional downtown parking. Shortly after the Paramount came down, the community got rid of another abandoned structure when the old Carnegie Building, which was the former home of the Anderson Public Library, was torn down.

  • Letter: Wall Street should not be in politics Talk about corruption, ponzi schemes, we're looking at you, Wall Street, controlling the prices of our food, gasoline and clothing we must buy and about every company in America — while trashing President Obama, the Affordable Health Care Plan, along with every Democrat, to influence our elections, at the same time.

  • Viewpoint: Dispatchers should not lose wages, benefits In regard to the plan to combine the city and county dispatch centers to one unit: Since this has come up it has pointed out a shameful tragedy of a group of employees in a life-saving unit of government. The city's emergency dispatch operators haven't had a pay raise in about 10 years.
