Opinion, Pages 4 on 12/23/2009

Dear Editor:

Maybe you can get everything you want at Alice’s Restaurant. But we can’t go on getting everything we want in the good ole USA. It’s going to destroy us if we don’t get a grip and start controlling spending, just as it has destroyed other countries in the past. Obviously we need leadership from the executive and the legislative that are truly idealistic and interested in what is good for country in the long run and not the masses in the short run and the usual playing with welfare of country based on political expediency. One of the most blatant examples recently of political expediency is the deal made to the Senator Mary Landrieu in the health care debacle. Wheeling and dealing, no matter the party, of course is not new, but it is getting so out of hand and costly

It is going to take people with big brass ones to steer this country in the right direction.

I think I represent a large segment of the American public, when I state I have got good health insurance. I don’t want it changed. I don’t want my premiums and my taxes raised. At 66, I don’t want a clerk in the bowels of the government buearcacy deciding what is best for me.
