Not a ‘rainy day’
This is in acknowledgment to John Weyrick’s letter (“Federal furloughs,” Jan. 9) apropos federal workers who do not accept a plan for a backing day. Mr. Weyrick, you are not talking about association in the top 1 percent. You are talking about mostly 800,000 accustomed alive association with families. I bethink aback my accouchement were young, how difficult it was to save for a backing day, because we had lots of backing days.
This shutdown, which I alarm a attack by our petulant-childlike president, is affecting not aloof 800,000 federal workers, but the bodies all over the country with whom they do business. It is adverse to our abridgement as a whole.
Do Democrats appetite bound security? Of advance they do; but they appetite it done in a way that will be able – a big animal bank is not the answer. Open the government and again altercate alive bound security.

Civic Wealth Tax
Here is the botheration for Democrats:
The Republicans are actual aback they say that we accept not had a new abstraction for the accomplished 50 years.
They are additionally appropriate aback they say that we accept had no civic platform/agenda that we angle for.
I appetite the federal government to do added and absorb added to advice our citizens who are poor, near-poor, lower-middle-class, and common as they attempt to survive and pay their bills. I appetite the civic Democratic Affair to be the way it was in the 1960s aback we cared added about all of these bodies and fought harder to accomplish activity bigger for them.
The botheration with the civic Democrats is that they accept offered no way to pay for annihilation that would advice to accomplish activity bigger for us.
So, we accept been spinning our auto for the accomplished 50 years accomplishing about annihilation to advice anyone.
It’s no admiration why bodies are ailing and annoyed of us. We haven’t offered annihilation new or different. I’m ailing and annoyed of us.
The alone way to get the acquirement to armamentarium my platform/agenda is to canyon a Civic Wealth Tax.
So, I apostle for the access of a Civic Wealth Tax of 10% on all individuals with a net-wealth and net-worth of $10 actor and higher. This will affect beneath than 1% of our population.
If we appetite to accept a Canadian-style civic bloom allowance affairs which will advice anybody except the actual rich, this is the alone way to appear up with the money for it.

Biden shouldn’t run
It’s consistently afraid me how award-winning fighters and politicians alongside one addition with their decisions. They usually delay too continued for a improvement that will never be.
History has abounding examples of these decisions. Sen. John McCain comes to mind; he absent the primary to George W. Bush in 2000. I generally admiration if he had won the primary and the accepted acclamation if we would accept been mired bottomward in the Middle East as continued as we accept been. The Republican affair gave him addition adventitious adjoin Barack Obama, but his time was up by 2008.
I anticipate Hillary Clinton’s time was 2016, now it’s gone. Joe Biden’s time ran out in 2016, too. I accept he could accept won the primary instead of Hillary, maybe alike the election, but not anymore.
Doesn’t amount which political affair you like, both accept their own award-winning angry stories. Timing is everything. Carpe diem rings accurate in politics. What’s sad is the parties are too generally abiding they couldn’t win the acclamation no amount what, so they bandy the old award-winning fighter in aloof to ample the card!

Romney has no backbone
So Mitt Romney wants addition attempt at the admiral (“Romney: How the admiral shapes the accessible character,” Jan. 3).
Why should anyone, appropriate or left, cull a batten for a candidate, who aback he had the admiral aural his grasp, banned to action back, preferring to edge about Admiral Obama and die off “honorably” with character?
I watched the band aback Harry Reid gloated on camera about auspiciously artifice the American accessible into assertive that Mitt Romney had paid aught taxes.
It was a complete lie. Romney banned to avert himself about a arrant lie that besmirched his reputation. Aloof the applicant we charge in The White House with treadmarks accoutrement the abridgement of a spine.
Newsflash for the uninformed…President Obama’s credo acquired Admiral Trump to be elected. Mitt Romney is calumniating our intelligence by assuming otherwise.

To letter-writer Peter Mascovits (“Legal immigration,” a letter from Jan. 5): Thank you for speaking up and allegorical the bearings of the Hungarian refugees of the 1956 Revolution. My mother and I did not defended access until about a abounding year later. We additionally had to go through all the accomplish and interviews and admiring affidavit that may accept been accessible in adjustment to authorize our access into the United States. Whatever it took, we backward aural the law. You and I accept lived that event, but the babe of a refugee who wrote a letter a few canicule ago and who never suffered through that bit of history had to accept an assessment demography the ancillary of the illegals. Regardless of the capricious opinions, laws are created to be followed. That’s all there is to it.
