Tax the rich

In today’s Tribune, one of the Scripps Howard writers said hooray for the 1 percent for what they do for us. He is not the first one to say it, and he won’t be the last. But for him and all the others that will say the same thing and sugarcoat it, they are not being realistic. Regardless of what they say, all the money is tied up with the 1 percent. If the economy is down, that 1 percent has to give more in taxes. France just raised their tax for the affluent to 75 percent. One group cannot ever have it all without the rest of the country feeling it. This has happened before, and it will happen again

Out of my way

Here’s a suggestion for you drivers — and you know who you are — who treated this little dusting of snow like the second coming of the Blizzard of ‘78: Do those of us who know how to drive a favor and stay off the roads!

Whose money?

The writer who said was Elizabeth Warren overspent her money was on the right track but erred in saying Obama overspends his money. It does not belong to him. It’s our money. We don’t have a dictator, at least not yet, but it’s fast approaching.

A&P history

The A&P was broken up; It might have been before or after AT&T, but it was broken up if there are a couple of stores with that name in some backwater town so be it, but the original company was broken up.

No. 44

Surprisingly mail is still coming into the newspapers saying Obama is going to ruin the country, which is farthest from the truth of course. We have had over 40 presidents, some good some bad and some just plain lousy, nd none have ruined the country. The one that came the closest was, of course, a Republican. He did in four years what took FDR almost 16 years to get us out of.good president to get us out of a mess hence FDR.
