Wednesday's Letters to the Editor

<b>Obama and Egypt</b>

EDITOR: The Coptic Christians have been in Egypt for 1,300 years. Over the past several days, 47 Christian churches have been destroyed by the Muslim Brotherhood. Up until a few days ago, President Barack Obama had always been in the Muslim Brotherhood camp. Now, Obama says he is choosing no sides. But he just canceled military aid to Egypt by withholding four F-16 fighter jets that had been promised and canceling a joint military exercise. So, in reality, he is still supporting the Muslim Brotherhood. In view of all the things the Muslim Brotherhood is doing to the Coptic Christians, I think Obama's behavior is atrocious. He should support the Egyptian generals just as Saudi Arabia is doing.

<b>Government in action</b>

EDITOR: Wow, another house bought by the city of Santa Rosa, rented back for $1 and forgotten ("SR reveals another no-rent property," Friday). I guess the city doesn't need the money that it could get at the going rate. I'm glad the renter is using his capitalist spirit and making money by subletting a portion of the home.

I can't wait for the government to run Obamacare. I'm sure it will do a better job after giving most unions, Congress, federal employees and big business that support him waivers.
