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?

  • Viewpoint: Pray for an end to abortion pandemic There are few, if any, conditions of our day that have more impact on our lives than the shameful practice of abortion – a legalized form of murder. There are many who say that should not be spoken in polite society. There are others who buy into the fabrication that since abortion is legal, it must be a non-issue.

  • Viewpoint: Politicians creating instability in public schools

    I will begin this correspondence by stating I have known hundreds of educators from across the state of Indiana.

  • Viewpoint: Resources are available to prevent child abuse The word "courage" is often associated with the fight against child abuse. Front line victim advocates have long recognized the need for courage in order to protect victims. Behind the scene advocates need courage to fight for funding and attention to the cause.

  • Viewpoint: Tree City USA distinction laughable I thoroughly enjoyed your April Fools' editorial announcing that the city of Anderson had received the Tree City USA distinction. Had I not realized it was a joke, I would have choked on my coffee. I was a little concerned that you did not announce to some of the less enlightened readers that it was an April Fools' joke.
