Letter: Doggone it, aren’t they all a nuisance?

Editor:

Dale Gohr in his Jan. 7 letter said, “Your real enemy is governmental corruption and the practice of making exceptions for themselves and their cronies.

“If you manage to kill capitalism with socialism or any other form of totalitarian system, you will have effectively killed the goose that lays the golden eggs and you will have done it to benefit the super-wealthy at the expense of everybody except the super-wealthy and they will not even thank you for your effort.”

Well, dang it all, I thought that was exactly what McConnell, Boehner, Cantor, Ryan et al are trying to do -- kill off a good system to benefit their super wealthy cronies like the Koch brothers in this country. They surely seem to be trying to be Reverse Robin Hoods. Why else would someone like Warren Buffett practically beg to be taxed more? He keeps telling us he can afford it and should pay more. But then who is he? Only just about the wealthiest man in the country. Pesky guy.

Oh, yes, and then there are those socialistic government employees like police and fire folks who keep their companies pretty much safe and the socialistic mail people who deliver their orders and checks. Doggone it, aren’t they all a nuisance?
