LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Contrasting opinions

(Continued)

That was not the case. The price of homes were going up at an accelerated rate, but when the money ran out folks found themselves living in houses that they owed $300,000 on and was worth only about half that much. My friend that is the result of government meddling in the free market, and should stay out of it. The stupidity cost the folks to lose money in the stock market, and their homes.

I guess I’m dumb, but I can’t see the connection between the 30-hour work week and President Bush. Mr. Tilly said in his letter of Oct. 3: “The surge in part-time jobs was a result of the Bush recession and the predictable employer reluctance to hire full time when the Republican House has been doing everything in their power to delay the recovery.”

The economy is recovering slowly, because of President Obama’s health care law. The reason that President Obama was re-elected is due to no information voters. A reporter was interviewing people on the street and the question was, “Do you like Obamacare, or the affordable health care?” The answer was, I like the affordable care better. Asked, “Why do you like it better?” the answer was Obamacare has too many problems. The reporter said they are the same thing and he was accused of lying.

A couple of quotes from Sir Winston Churchill: “The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.” “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”

I don’t know what type of insurance Mr. Tilly sells, but he needs to advertise, if it is health insurance. A friend had her premium to more than double.
