Some pretty wild remarks were printed in a letter in Friday’s Roundup titled, “What Democrats say they believe.” These outrageous claims deserve a few lines in return please.
Now, I don’t claim to speak for the Democratic Party; I am not a Democrat, but I know a lot of those good people, and I don’t know anyone of them who “loathes the military” as Mr. Castleman states ... in fact, a lot of these folks are veterans as am I.
Another “thoughtful” comment was, “They want to stop all drilling and refining ... again I find this very far from the truth. I don’t know any American who advocates such nonsense. But since the Roundup deigned to print these words and the writer’s other six ridiculous claims about how a group of people think, may I ask that you print the following; equal time, or fair and balanced, as it were?
Republicans’ Platform for 2012: Unlike Friday’s letter, these are true:
Corporations are people
Women who use birth control are sluts
College students are slobs
Gay Americans are an abomination
Poor people deserve to be poor
Union workers are Socialist thugs (What the heck is an American Socialist anyhow?)
Unemployed Americans are lazy parasites
Latinos are illegal until proven otherwise
The Bible trumps the Constitution
Global warming is a hoax
The U.S. auto industry should have been allowed to go bankrupt
The American president in a Muslim agent from Kenya
Schools are the last item to be funded from the Arizona state budget
Mine the Grand Canyon
