TO THE EDITOR: Had Virgil Thoner, Ellsworth, studied the issue at all—Walker vs. the Public Employees and Teachers—he’d have known the thrust of the employees’ complaint was the taking away of bargaining rights.
Otherwise, they are completely at the mercy of politicians who want to fund their own pork belly projects and anything else at the expense of the employees.
Mr. Thoner states he worked for himself. For all we know, he could be the financial equivalent of Mark Zuckerberg.
He must have loved his work to have worked until he was 83. If Mr. Thoner thought public employees and teachers had it so good, why didn’t he pursue one of those jobs himself?
As to Voter ID, data from every state show the “fraud” rate was less than one-tenth of a percent. In addition, the potential for fraud has proven much greater with absentee ballot, and nothing has been devised to curb that fraud. And that is why the Republicans do nothing about absentee ballot, but do all they can to deprive legitimate voters of their right to vote in the booth by implementing the photo ID laws, reducing the number and hours of voting locations. The purpose is purely to squelch the vote of minorities and elderly.
I have been unable to verify Farrakhan’s and Wright’s party affiliation. As to Michael Moore and Jesse Jackson, I cannot know why they are Democrats, but it may be the same reason, I am: it’s the party that most closely follows the teachings of Jesus Christ.
This is the America we truly want. It believes in what is best for the majority of the American people, not that which actually benefits only the elite few.
