When You Are A Hammer, Everything Looks Like A Nail



To the individual who created the Kerry flag as described in the Opinion page of the April 13 issue of the Roundup, I would just like to say that he displays the same arrogance as the present administration.

After thumbing his nose at the U.N., Bush now reluctantly admits that the U.N. is needed to help him out of the situation he got us into in Iraq. Is it any wonder that most of the people in the rest of the world regard our government as arrogant? Diplomacy?hat's that? Unheard of in this administration. Why should we care what other countries think? We are the super power of the world. And when you are a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Regarding the letter titled "Bush is Taking Care of Business" -- I agree. But the title should have read: "Bush is Taking Care of Big Business" -- such as the drug companies. Bush agreed not to price bargain with the drug companies who will be providing drugs for the so-called drug benefit program. Now why do you think he would do such a stupid thing? Would it have anything to do with the millions of dollars the drug companies donated to his campaign?

Wouldn't you like to have a business that sells products to the government without any restrictions on price? This is just another example of arrogant fiscal irresponsibility that us taxpayers will pay for.

Another favor that Bush is attempting to do for his drug cronies is blocking the sale of drugs to Americans from Canada and Mexico. Several states including Arizona have a plan in place to provide prescription drugs to low-income individuals at a reduced cost. Those drugs come from Canada. Bush is attempting to stop that too.

Even John McCain, Republican Senator from Arizona, whom I have the utmost respect for, is very upset withhe favors this administration is providing for its lobbying campaign contributors.
