2. Commentary on the host’s
Letter to the Editor of the Press Democrat, published Friday May 22, 2015:
EDITOR: What? Ninety-three billion dollars allocated for the military in the so-called balanced budget? Who are we as a nation? Are we a nation that values life or promotes death?
Recognize who is going to suffer — our children and their future. What will they inherit? Endless wars, disease epidemics due to lack of medical care for all, under-education due to the trashing of public education, hunger as food prices rise and food stamps are cut for those who need a boost and, sadly, the elderly sleeping on the streets because Social Security has been destroyed?
Wait a minute. We are fighting for the fetus and, at the same time, killing children already born in other countries and on the streets of U.S., and it is all justified and budgeted.
It is interesting listening to candidates who let us know how they support the military and agree with the cutting of social services. Oops, be careful. I forgot social services means socialism. A good slogan this election cycle: profits over humanity.
I ask again, are we a nation that values life or promotes death?
