To the Editor: Words for thought

Many of our politicians, once they get into position, they change their disposition. All the constituents can suffer the consequences because a bunch of manipulators want you to believe that they’re on the right path.

In the meantime, the constituents are shredded like old documents. As long as their oily pocketbooks are well greased up, nothing seems to matter.

Anything within reason is not so bad because nothing is really perfect, but anything within reason should be negotiated fairly for everyone and be accepted. Many of these lawmakers don’t even believe in God, like it says on our coins and paper money. With high oil prices and all phases in the cost of living escalating, when is this situation going to stop?

I’m inclined to think some of our Fox newscasters and politicians like to put everyone in a paranoid state of mind because of some of their radical tactics. When are we ever going to find peace?

Certain individuals seem to have their heads in the wrong part of their anatomy or graduated from the wrong academy. They must have forgotten all the lives lost in a falsified war with several thousand wounded and the enormous amount of taxpayer money down the drain in Iraq. Again, the top-notch corporations get richer, and the middle class have to pay and suffer the consequences!

    You need to read your last paragraph and apply it to yourself. You love to bash those of us who prefer Fox news over your lame-stream socialist owned and operated media.

    Who do you get your news from, Keith Olbermann??? Yeah, he’s unbiased all right!!!

    I prefer Fox News. Yet I am constantly bombarded by those in Rockford’s liberal community, and the lame-stream media at large that I am either stupid, insensitive, racist, or, as you put it, a hater.

    Is it “hate” that I mistrust the main-stream media? I can recite dozens of examples where the major news organizations have, for years, mislead their viewers to a false point of view. Most recently, the media gave Barack Obama a “free-pass” on his Chicago connections. No way would John McCain have been let off the hook if he had a “Tony Rezko” in his closet.

    In my considered opinion, the lame-stream media duped the majority of Americans into voting for Obama.

    Yet you imply that I’m stupid. I think you’re either naive or so brain-washed by this left-wing garbage that you can’t see the truth.
