Letter: Rich get richer while poor suffer

Rich get richer while poor suffer

Many of us continue to show our loyalty to America’s unions and workers by buying foreign autos. Thanks for sabotaging our economy! When you need our help — forget it.

Thanks for thinking of yourself only, and watch our great country fall apart.

That old, “I’ve got my job, now, get yours,” (this applies to health care and pay, as well) will not work. It’s selfish, greedy and even racist.

What we need is a kick-butt union society and, until that happens, there will never be an economic recovery for the “middle class.”

In Indianapolis, this goofy Republican government we have installed is raising user taxes on basketball, football and other games; anything to insure that the poor pay the whole bill. Anything but the rich. Heaven forbid those who make millions should pay more than a 70-year-old retiree.

Mark my word. Groceries and medicine will be next, just after the rich kill Social Security and Medicare — and your pensions. When it’s all gone, it’s gone. Better act now before it’s too late!

Hostess, who would rather go out of business than pay decent wages, is near selling the Twinkie franchise to a company that will hire a bunch of scab workers and stuff the pockets of a few owners and Wall Street. The recipients of this windfall will all get together and sing, “We love this country.” Personally, I hope they choke on it.

The Republican Party and Wall Street are still mad as hell about President Obama saving General Motors and the related 350,000 jobs. Whose side is Wall Street on? Whose side are the Republicans on?

  • 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."
