Let’s remind representatives we also want good coverage
As if the fact that muggers, rapists, and thieves hiding among the flock of those seeking asylum wasn’t enough of an excuse, the fact that a measles outbreak in Rockland County should cause us all to take a moment of pause and ask ourselves what are we wishing for if the wall does not get built?
Funny how those who are clamoring for the floodgates to open granting everyone who enters amnesty, live in gated communities and are struggling for political power.
While American history is steeped in tradition of allowing immigrants to enter at Ellis Island, many forget that this required proper vetting. Ellis had rooms off to the side, where immigrants suspected of having an illness, were subjected to intense medical scrutiny.
Diseases once thought extinct in America due to intense vaccination programs are now reappearing and I wonder if sufficient medication even exists to treat another pandemic should one break out.
The fact that a bio-terror weapon could be leashed upon unsuspecting Americans should make those who do not believe that their children should be vaccinated while they can think twice before allowing fear to overrule logic.
While the wall may seem extreme to some, it is clear that immigration requires an overhaul before we allow thousands to enter and overcome the resources of local communities that are ill prepared to handle the baggage they bring with them. We must put politics aside and insist that Washington find a long-lasting remedy that goes way beyond our borders, or become a Third World nation incapable of helping itself, with nowhere to turn.
Investigative journalism exposes lazy lawmakers
Just when you thought our politicians could stoop no lower, a report published by USA Today and The Arizona Republic will validate just how worthless they truly have become.
The report indicates that thousands of bills written by special interest groups are disguised as work of lawmakers to quietly advance the agenda of those who wrote them.
More than 2,100 of some 10,000 of these bills were signed into law.
These copycat bills are not the work
East Amherst Health care is a big issue these days.
The health care program that members of Congress enjoy has been talked about for years – not for its lack of decent coverage, but for its reputation as the Cadillac of plans. The same constituents that voted these people into office, now worry that their own health care will be reduced in options or increased in dollars.
This would be an excellent time for congressional members to bring their coverage into what the voters have always been looking for – an even playing field.
A short note to your members might be all it takes to remind them that we think, we write and we vote.
Instead of repeating probes, let’s teach kids proper values
Recently we had a person complain about the cost of the Mueller report. Then he suggested we should investigate Hillary Clinton and her foundation.
Apparently, that person forgot we investigated that foundation and the Benghazi incident without anything being revealed. Now that person wants to spend more of the taxpayers’ money on another investigation.
How about we spend some time with our children and grandchildren and explain to them that nobody should criticize other people and mock their physical stature; especially when they have the government behind them. How will the future of the United States look if we don’t show them what’s right and wrong!
We must support church in its present time of need
In reply to the excellent March 25 letter, stating that Catholics should not lose faith and should continue to believe and support the church. I agree!
The church is not perfect and neither are we. We are disappointed with the church and I am sure that we have disappointed the church, but the church did not abandon us.
Let us not be S/L Catholics – short hand for giving and long hand for taking. The church provides us with religious services to assist us to grow in our faith and we in turn must support it so it can.
Wealth-building ‘strategies’ help the president get richer
Maybe one of the ways that fortunes are made, especially when a lot of money is involved, is that you can claim a lower amount than you actually owe and wait years for the “audit” to be complete before you have to pay up.
In the meantime, you can use that money to invest and make more, for you. Is this your tactic Mr. President?
