Crisis? What Crisis?

Letter to the Editor They say we are in the middle of an economic crisis and that the economy is going to die. Yet Congress is off on holiday. So if this is such a crisis then why are they taking a vacation? I’d like to take a vacation too but I’m busy paying off […]

Is it time to panic yet?

Letter to the Editor America is in a scary position. The economy is so bad that that people are too scared to panic. And we are getting close to the point where people are too scared NOT to panic. But whose fault is it really? Clearly it’s Nancy Pelosi’s fault. Why Pelosi? Because she is […]

Churches should not get tax money

Letter to the Editor I have to disagree with the 33 churches who decided to break the law and endorse a candidate. Churches who accept tax deductible money are not allowed to endorse candidates. But churches do it anyway which makes me question if churches, including the Church of Reality which I founded, should be […]

Congress should NOT pass a bailout quickly

Letter to the Editor I watched President Bush speak to the nation tonight. The good news is that he came across for the first time as both presidential and articulate. The bad news is a sober, articulate, presidential George Bush is even scarier than his normal childish demeanor. He also failed to articulate any personal […]

Letter to the Editor – Republican Wall Street Welfare Queens

Letter to the Editor The pejorative term “Welfare Queen” is used to describe a lazy irresponsible social pariah who collect government welfare checks through an orgy of fraud, deception, or manipulation, draining society of valuable resources while engaging in immoral behavior. But before you yell “Racist!” I’m not talking about black women. I’m talking about […]

Liberals bailing out Conservatives

Letter to the Editor Now that the conservatives are coming to the taxpayers for a 700 billion dollar bailout I’m wondering what the conservatives are willing to give up in exchange for this massive welfare check? Maybe they should compensate us by giving up the Iraq war and the election? Maybe they should at least […]

Palin needs to do a real press conference

Letter to the Editor Is Sarah Palin ready to be president? One job of being president or vice president is the ability to do a press conference and answer reporter’s questions. It’s been almost a month since this unknown governor of Alaska has been on the Republican ticket and she has yet to come out […]

Will the bailout money be stolen too?

Letter to the Editor If we pass out $700,000,000,000 of our hard earned taxpayer money to the banks who ripped us off, how do we know they aren’t going to rip off our bailout money too? I hope they aren’t going to pass out money now and regulate later.

America – where the poor pay welfare to the rich

Letter to the Editor America is now a place where the poor pay welfare to the rich. What a country! The working class bailing out the investor class and the investor class pays a far lower tax rate (capital gains) than working class people who pay payroll taxes.

Can we spend a trillion bucks a week to prop up the market?

You know it’s going to be a dirty election when …

Letter to the Editor Remember in the 2000 election when John McCain was accused of fathering a black baby? Well you know it’s going to be a dirty election because McCain has hired the guy who was behind that smear against him. All I can say is – WOW! I suppose now we’ll see McCain […]

Aren’t you glad we didn’t privatize Social Security?

Letter to the Editor On this day when the stock market drops 500 points and every week another major institutions fails aren’t we glad that Congress never passed laws to privatize our Social Security funds? Just imagine what it would be like if Bush and McCain had got their way? Privatization and deregulation is just […]

Media Fiddles while Rome Burns

Letter to the Editor The news media fiddles while Rome burns.

Lipstick on a Pig refers to McCain – not Palin

Letter to the Editor OH OH OH – The Republicans are sooooo offended by Obama’s “Lipstick on a Pig” comment. He’s so mean – he’s so sexist! But as Obama has said many times, McCain just doesn’t get it. Obama was calling John McCain’s message of fake change a pig. Obama isn’t calling Palin the […]

It’s 9-11 again and bin Laden is still free

Letter to the Editor Here we are at the 7th anniversary of 9-11 and Osama bin Laden is still free. The Republicans have focused on going to war with the wrong country and have shown very little interest in going after the people who actually attacked us. If we keep electing those who failed then […]

If Palin can’t take the heat she should stay out of the kitchen

Letter to the Editor I’m getting tired of the unknown Alaska governor whining about the news media. We don’t know who she is and she’s running for the nation’s second highest office. And since she is running on family related issues, asking family related questions are fair game. For example, if Obama had 5 kids […]

Republicans running against the Republican Establishment

Letter to the Editor In his convention speech John McCain admitted that Republicans lost the trust of the people when “Republicans gave in to the temptations of corruption.” Is McCain now running against the Republican establishment? If so, does that mean that we should vote against the Republicans running for Congress? Or are all the […]

Letter to the Editor John McCain is running against the Republican establishment? The Republican establishment that he now admits failed the American people. John McMcain is going to take America back from people like John McCain? And that’s change we can believe in? I wonder if the Republicans running for reelection in the House and […]

Republicans and Democrats have different messages

Letter to the Editor After watching both the Democratic and Republican conventions I see a different message coming from each camp. The Democrats speak the language of peace. The Republicans speak the language of war. The Democrats talk about unity, that we are one country and one people. The Republicans are divisive. They talk of […]

Desperate Housewives is BACK!

Letter to the Editor I was really disappointed this year when the ABC TV series “Desperate Housewives” went off the air. But now with John McCain’s pick of Sarah Palin it’s like the series is back. Governor Sarah Palin’s story has all the intrigue and anticipation of the TV series. I just can’t wait to […]
