Letter: Businesses, job seekers, meet success at job fair

(Continued)

For one, all the wage cuts and taking away workers’ benefits have gone directly into the pockets of big business, without an ounce of help for the common worker; like price cuts.

The Chamber of Commerce stated (THB June 24) that good business legislation (right to scab), law and others helped business grow. Nuts! What a crock. Workers deserve some legislation and respect. Who cares if big business grows, if they fire all their workers and cut the pay of all the rest.

Now comes the announcement that St. John’s Hospital will fire hundreds of employees. Just another testimonial to the Republican cancer in Indianapolis and the Chamber of Commerce and Better Business Bureau (Republican pimps).

How many Republican state-elected officials are headed for possible jail terms or are being investigated right now? And, how is the no-call working? Are you getting more nuisance calls than before the law was passed? Are our roads full of potholes and broken-down bridges and culverts? Is all taxpayer money going to religious and private schools, while the 90 percent of us get short-changed?

Citizens need to demand turnaround of policies

Wake up, free traders. After at least 20 years of free trade (one world order), what are the results?

All the states are drowning in ink, along with most citizens. The wealth has gone to the 1 percent (banks, stock market and multi-corporations). Even the Supreme Court has jumped on the destruction agenda.

If citizens don’t come alive and demand a turnaround of the insane policies now in place, I see a country, even a world, in decay. Our leaders, once they adopt an action (free trade, no regulations, wars, trickle down, etc.), refuse to admit a mistake, and continue on. Only when the average citizen finally says enough, that’s when the carnage of America will end.

But, will citizens ever wake up? Who knows? One thing is sure, they can’t keep sleeping and expect their lives to change. The 1 percent is awake and scheming. Enough said!

Poll

Now that Andrew Luck is getting ready to start the third year of his NFL career, did the Colts make the right decision to release Peyton Manning and turn the offense over to Luck?

Yes, the future is bright.
No, the Colts would have won another Super Bowl by now if they had kept Manning.
Don't know; don't care
