Letter: Gun supporters’ campaign thriving

The “Guns for Nuts” club is thriving in Washington and Indianapolis. Membership is up, especially in Texas (Houston), where a new convention center was named after the National Rifle Association. In your face, Sandy Hook, in your face.

They campaign for 30-shot clips, wearing their newly bought khakis and carrying an M-16 like they know how to shoot. The only trigger they have ever pulled was on a Hopalong Cassidy BB gun.

Most of them have no good reason why they support the Gun Nuts, anymore than the middle class had reason to support the KKK in the 1920s; most of whom would have been horrified to lynch a black. There were no black supporters of the KKK or any skinhead group; no more than any of the so-called Gun Nuts if they had a child in Sandy Hook — no sir-ee.

Led by the billionaire pimps in the House of Representatives, they also support foreign bank accounts for America’s rich and work you to lost limbs and/or death in pole barn sweat shops — for rice cake wages. Dirty air and undrinkable water just comes with the pole barn syndrome.

But, it’s always the Republicans who come to the rescue of big business (like they need it) — with sweat shop laws, allowing them to fire an employee for any reason or just with no reason, and cut your pay with no representation.

  • Letter: City beautification ignores other areas I read in the paper where they are going to start work on their great roundabout. What a waste, they are spending millions on the south side for the great gateway to Anderson and all the while the rest of Anderson is ignored.

  • Letter: Poll shows priorities are backward Your recent polling question about schools providing free food for children tells us society has its priorities backwards. The conservatives want low taxes. 53 percent said no to feeding the kids.

  • Letter: President's trade being swept under rug My question to all, why do we keep hearing after a number of months about the shootings in Colorado, Sandy Hook, etc., but yet the president illegally deals with terrorists, trades five for a believed deserter and now it is being swept under the rug?

  • Letter: Constitution, laws being trampled Nancy Pelosi said, "When it comes to protecting the children I'm a lioness!" Too bad that doesn't include the babies who are ripped from the womb. How ironic to hear the progressive liberals talk of compassion for illegals while killing our own.

  • Letter: Liberal says 'illegal' should be taboo Did you see where a well-known liberal wants to do away with the "I" word? 'I' as in "illegal."
