TO THE EDITOR: The Poughkeepsie Journal, in a recent editorial, referred to never-ending Obama lies as “oversimplifications.”
What’s referred as “oversimplifications” by liberals is called lying by more knowledgeable conservatives.
When Obama made the “keep your coverage” promise, over and over, he was either a liar or a grossly incompetent leader, most likely both.
Fifty-three percent believe Obama is dishonest and untrustworthy. The remaining 47 percent should take anxiety medication and consult a “shrink.”
There must be a remedy to enable liberals to distinguish lies from “oversimplifications.” I’d suggest thinking, but that’s an unachievable goal.
Non-thinking is a more plausible option. It maintains the status quo for devoid intellect and eliminates any mental aspirations. Creative idea, but I think it’s already occurring. There’s actually more productive brain activity in a cadaver, so deep sleep might be the solution.
Over 5.9 million lost their insurance and 330,000 signed up for Obamacare; 57% of the young do not favor it but are needed for its success. Do the math; will it be successful?
Obama’s a self-professed illegal drug abuser with documented associations to the “Down Low Club” in Chicago comprising men secretly engaging in homosexual activity while living straight lives.
“You can keep your insurance and doctor, period” demonstrates him to be an accomplished liar. In totality, it’s not a distinguished resume, but as president he’s considered the liberal standard-bearer, the pride of the party.
The Poughkeepsie Journal won’t give you those facts or maybe any. You don’t have to rely on some obscure publication for advice; use your own logic. Obviously that’s a drawback.
We should remember liberal minds and fallow brain fields don’t bear mental crops.
TO THE EDITOR: Recently, an Essex County supervisor whined about the apathy shown by county citizens during the budgeting process.
If he does not know why we will not comment on their Einstein-like budget plan, then let me enumerate the reasons:
▶ If the supervisors will not listen to their “good old boy” manager when he tells them they are wrong, why would a citizen think they would be listened to? The supervisors will just go ahead and do what they want anyway.
▶ When three towns (Ti, Lake Placid ,Moriah) can dictate to the board with their overpowering weighted vote, what effect would words from smaller towns have?
▶ When the absence of one of the town supervisors above can bollix the train (wreck), what good does commenting by citizens of other towns do?
▶ When supervisors have as their prime interest budgets other than the county’s, what good do comments do?
▶ When supervisors claim that our citizens pay less than other counties but our overall taxes have never gone down; if the county takes less, the town and the school take more, what good do comments do?
▶ When we watch project after project be mismanaged and brought in over time and over budget, what good do comments do? (I really do not understand why tree huggers worry about the county radio system bothering the Bucknell’s thrush; by the time the system is built, the bird will be off the endangered list.)
So why do we not comment upon the budgets? Railing against incompetence and inefficiency is like wrestling with a pig; it only accomplishes two things — it gets you dirty and makes the pig angry.
Please Santa, bring us a real county legislature instead of the abomination we have now.
We deserve better.
