In the Jan. 24 issue, the article on the American/immigrant workforce, it's the political contributions that dictate our laws. The only alternative we, the public, have is to vote them out of office. A reduction of their terms is a good idea, too.
In the Oct. 14 edition of Barron’s, Randall Forsyth wrote, “They may be dumb in D.C., but they’re not stupid. Congress and the White House have long been used to the contempt of the electorate; if we keep sending our representatives back, why should they care?”
I am one voice.
For those of you that have not been watching "Under the Dome," you have missed one of the most surreal and truest lines of dialog ever in a TV program:
I vote mostly for Republicans, but I have on occasion supported candidates from the rival party.
It's funny to me how so many liberals manage to catch the same illness. Many have the "itis" disease. Palinitis, Tea Party-itis, Republicanitis, etc.
Calling all conservatives, reactionaries, liberals, progressives, Libertarians, socialists, utilitarians and vegetarians. Aren't you sick of getting ripped off by Washington?
Offering perspective on today's issues
Technology allows outlets to the Internet, cable news, PBS, Sunday and weeknight political programming. Boring falsehoods, favorable spins, dominate by design?
Washington is going through multiple government scandals, and our president doesn’t know who is responsible. Maybe he should look in the mirror, because he is the executive in charge of these scandalous departments.
For decades, we have given borrowed money and materials to other countries. Today, we have our brave soldiers stationed in more than 100 countries.
This is an open letter to all politicians, local, county, state and national. I belong to the largest unincorporated group in the world. I'm a voter in the United States of America.
I am writing this short letter in response to Bill Masterson Jr.'s Jan. 3 column about simple tax reform. Masterson mentions finger-pointing by the "president and Congress."
In response to F. Marc Ruiz's recent columns on modern monetary theory:
It never ceases to amaze me as to how stupid our governors, mayors and all politicians are. To vote for airports in Peotone, Ill. when there are at least 10 to 15, all in the general area, which are all usable in emergencies such as the one Oct. 31, 1994, in Roselawn.
The election should tell a very important story to the politicians. The election was almost split down the middle. That tells me that nobody is happy with either party.
Official misconduct, dishonest politicians, fraudulent voting practices, deceitful representatives, corrupt politics, unscrupulous bureaucrats, devious legislators, crooked officials, etc.
I recently asked my friend's little girl what she wanted to be when she grew up. She said she wanted to be president of the United States.
Lesson for you. In 2006 the Democrats took control over both houses of Congress. Until then the economy was doing great.
Apparently the leaders of both major parties did not pay attention in high school economics classes. They should have learned that no family, no business, no government can continue to exist if they continually go deeper in debt.
