Letter: GOP on wrong side of most issues

We need a quick fix for our economy. We don’t need the conservatives’ plan of more misery. Their plan is, plant an apple tree and wait. What we do need is an apple tree that is already planted, with apples on it.

We demand our union jobs back. Nothing else will work to stave off poverty for the middle class.

We need a congressional investigation of those who sabotaged our jobs and the economy. We already know the guilty party — Wall Street and their pimps in Congress, the Republicans; but, let’s make it official.

I still say George W., Cheney, Rumsfeld, Ashcroft, Ridge and Rice all belong in prison.

The Republican Party is a disgrace, and on the wrong side of just about every issue. Hurricane Sandy — you couldn’t find a Republican with a police dog. And the Sandy Hook murders of schoolchildren shows which side they are on. Bush slept on 9/11, and allowed FEMA to let old folks die in nursing homes in New Orleans, during Hurricane Katrina.

The Republicans are now beholding, to not just Wall Street but to the billionaire-led tea party — sabotaging the pre-Christmas vote on the fiscal cliff we faced. Talk about the Grinch; they want to eliminate Social Security, Medicare, food stamps and unemployment benefits, with tax cuts for themselves. They are in favor of a whole bunch of $5 to $8 an hour entry-level jobs, along with $20,000 cars (foreign); $3 per gallon milk or grocery bills of $300 per week, and $150 doctor office calls.

  • 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: New glass ceiling is $12 an hour All those libertarians, tea party, conservatives (dupes of the rich) are leading America's middle class and poor into poverty and depression.

  • 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.
