Rich get richer while poor suffer
Many of us continue to show our loyalty to America’s unions and workers by buying foreign autos. Thanks for sabotaging our economy! When you need our help — forget it.
Thanks for thinking of yourself only, and watch our great country fall apart.
That old, “I’ve got my job, now, get yours,” (this applies to health care and pay, as well) will not work. It’s selfish, greedy and even racist.
What we need is a kick-butt union society and, until that happens, there will never be an economic recovery for the “middle class.”
In Indianapolis, this goofy Republican government we have installed is raising user taxes on basketball, football and other games; anything to insure that the poor pay the whole bill. Anything but the rich. Heaven forbid those who make millions should pay more than a 70-year-old retiree.
Mark my word. Groceries and medicine will be next, just after the rich kill Social Security and Medicare — and your pensions. When it’s all gone, it’s gone. Better act now before it’s too late!
Hostess, who would rather go out of business than pay decent wages, is near selling the Twinkie franchise to a company that will hire a bunch of scab workers and stuff the pockets of a few owners and Wall Street. The recipients of this windfall will all get together and sing, “We love this country.” Personally, I hope they choke on it.
The Republican Party and Wall Street are still mad as hell about President Obama saving General Motors and the related 350,000 jobs. Whose side is Wall Street on? Whose side are the Republicans on?

Letter: Republicans will eventually ban guns
To the Republicans who want to destroy the lives of 30 million Americans who depend on government help every day, I say we are well armed. In the long run, it will be Republicans who ban guns. You just watch.
Letter: To smoke or not to smoke
For several years, health and government organizations have spent millions of dollars trying to get people to stop smoking. It has had some success.
Letter: Obama was given permission to lie
People were told by our current administration that there was a spontaneous uprising over an obscure video in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012, that caused the death of our ambassador, two Navy SEALs, and another American official.
Letter: 1 percenters should not pay any tax
Why should the 1 percenters pay any tax at all. Let’s face it, no way should they be required to worry with paying taxes.
Letter: Love rather than law lies at heart of Christianity
Conservative writer Cal Thomas says, “Government shouldn’t define ‘church.’” Why not? Did Jesus define “church”? No. The New Testament contains no legal code for political governance.
Letter: Lives disrupted by ambulance crash
I’m very upset at how it was portrayed that Joseph Sandlin stole an ambulance and crashed it into a tree. He crashed into five parked cars before striking the tree, disrupting people’s lives and totaling four of the five cars.
Letter: Community backing supports students
The annual “Students to Europe” auction, which was held at Lapel High School on April 13, brought in $12,214. This total was an all-time auction high.
Letter: Wheel tax concerns must be presented
The 2012 Madison County Council passed a balanced county budget for the 2013 year, within the budgeted $1½ million road maintenance funds plus $400,000 for road equipment, hundreds of thousands of dollars more than generated by the wheel tax.
Letter: Ignoring the poor will save money
Will Miracle Mike Pence expand Medicaid for the poor, uninsured Hoosiers with the Affordable Care Act, or will he follow his tea party roots and say no, so he can give 10 percent tax cuts to the wealthy, as they need to hire more gardeners and landscapers now that spring is here?
