Letters to the WCP Editor – 5.18.10

Letters to the WCP Editor – 5.18.10

Posted: Tuesday, May 18, 2010 9:07 pm

Dear Editor,
I recently read on the opinion page about how we have all become dependent on the Internet. I agree and so I think your readers would be very interested in what the government wants to do with it and  other free speech outlets like talk radio.
Net Neutrality is supposed to be a plan to make the net fair and balanced for everyone, but when a federal judge recently ruled they don’t have the power to regulate the net they said they would declare it a utility and regulate it anyway.
They seem to totally disregard the law and Constitution when they want to do something. This is what bothers me the most, the President appointed a  “ Diversity Czar” to the FCC.
His name is Mark Lloyd and he can be seen on Youtube in his own words,  praising Hugo Chavez (the dictator of Venezuela) for the way he controlled the media to put himself in power. Go to Youtube and search “FCC Diversity Czar Mark Lloyd on Hugo Chavez & Free Speech.”
It seems the government doesn’t want any opposing opinions. I say that’s too bad. When the President calls the whole Tea Party movement “Tea Baggers” because they disagree with his vision for America, it only divides the people and could be downright dangerous given the violence and threats of violence witnessed at the May 1 rallies around the country.
Another Obama appointee, Van Jones quit a few months ago when video surfaced in which he said, in his won words, he was a communist. I suggest your readers pay close attention to facts and please vote in this election.
Thank you,
George Yeagley

Dear Editor,
This letter is in response to “Letters to the Editor, May, 11, 2010.” I have no idea where this writer has been. I have been hearing about the illegal aliens amnesty law for some time now. George Bush, Jr. spoke in favor of it while he was still in office.
Ronald W. Reagan granted amnesty to “them” in the 1980s.
Now let’s look at the other side of the coin. Baby boomers are retiring everywhere with fewer and fewer paying into the Social Security fund. The “illegals,” the ones who have been working and paying into the Social Security system for more than 30 years, with no hopes of ever drawing a dime, may, in fact, very well be the ones who have saved Social Security for the rest of us.
Think of the millions that their money and moved back to Mexico to retire, allowing us to retire, at least in part, on the fruit of their labor.
Then I wonder who among us would be willing to go to jail, or pay a big fine for being able to spot phony or bogus papers, when some even fool immigration officers.
And then there’s the cast of fruits and vegetables in the supermarket.
What would we have to pay for them if they were harvested by those of us that couldn’t take the heat in the fields.
My Bible tells me how to treat strangers in our land. I, for one, will not be praying for them to suffer more hardships than they already have.
By the way, I’m pretty sure the extra votes were good for the Gypper also. Let us never forget the bail outs back then when the banks closed and kept everyone’s money. Now, try to decide which “bail out” you like best.
Now that this letter is in the hands of someone responsible, I’m going to go and find time to eat SOME RIBS!
