Tax cuts for the rich
EDITOR: Nicholas Kristof just doesn’t understand. In his Wednesday column (“Listen to Planned Parenthood patients”), he wrote about the plight of women in Paul Ryan’s congressional district whose health care would end if Planned Parenthood in Ryan’s district is stopped.
The health of women in Ryan’s district is irrelevant in the larger picture. In the larger picture, the repeal of Obamacare and the defunding of Planned Parenthood would result in a gigantic annual tax reduction for rich people. This tax reduction would be automatic with Obamacare’s repeal.
The women in Ryan’s district would benefit when this tax cut trickled down to them in the form of wages as house maids, wet nurses, secretaries and other menial jobs that rich people could pay for with their tax cuts.
Kristof needs to wake up and accept that the key to solving all our problems is more tax cuts for the wealthy.
It hasn’t worked so far, but if we keep cutting those taxes, it has to start working eventually. If the taxes on the wealthy are cut to zero, and our problems persist, maybe the government should start paying rich people to be rich. That should do it. Maybe.
EDITOR: Madonna said she wants to burn down the White House, Robert DeNiro said he wants to hit the president of the United States in the mouth, Kathy Griffin held a replica of a bloody severed head of the president, liberals have set fire to cars and buildings in Berkeley when conservative speakers were invited to the university, the homosexual community that seeks diversity is banning gay Donald Trump supporters from its parades, and Hillary Clinton just concluded her “blame tour” across the United States. Do I need to mention the media’s constant negative beating of the drum?
Now the hatred of the liberal left has flourished into a gunman with a rifle picking off Republicans practicing baseball at 7 a.m. What is next?
Part of the problem is Democrats don’t have one person or one voice they can look up to for direction — someone who can be a voice of reason, someone who can voice that the president deserves a chance and, at the same time, communicate liberal beliefs and values. This nonstop liberal left hatred coming from so many directions needs to stop. And it can start with you.
A ‘flattery parade’
EDITOR: Reading the account of Donald Trump’s Cabinet meeting was absolutely surreal (“Cabinet shrouds Trump in flattery,” Tuesday). Where did Trump find these people? It was a true kiss-up fest. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis deviated from the flattery parade by praising our military personnel to a stern, non-pleased Trump. How long do you think Mattis will remain on the job?
EDITOR: Last week’s rain added to already record-breaking Sonoma County rainfall. But I can’t remember any political leader predicting such a torrent or instructing citizens in ark building. Despite 24/7 satellite tracking and accumulation of real-time weather data, forecasters still could only predict the “possibility” of above normal rainfall — certainly not the deluge the heavens produced. Forecasters have become very good at predicting tomorrow’s weather but less so with each future day, despite all their measuring tools and computer modeling.
