Opinion Letters

In response to the very talented writer who felt it necessary to be vindictive and hateful regarding my recent letter. I am afraid her anger and fragile emotional state blinded her to the truth of my words. She even misquoted me. I never said George Soros was “singulary responsible for everything in our system.” She needs to read without anger to interpret what is said. She further stated that I repeated lies, misinformation, and twisted history which she feels was proven false by her un-named sources. I never print things that have not been validated. Again, her emotions ran rampant as she made up her own words to interpret what I said about the UN and Mr. Soros. She spouted about “These Patriots,” and “their man in the White House,” it was obvious she is so far Left that finding the truth is not important to her. For this I am very sorry for her. The old quote, “There are none so blind as those who will not see,” is very appropriate in her case.

The economy is the largest accident ever designed by man. We think we can’t control it, but people do. Unfortunately, it is our human nature that is in control and not our logic.

Trickle-down Reaganomics is one attempt at control. The idea is to give tax cuts to people that don’t need them. These people will then invest that money in their businesses, if they have one. They will hire workers, if they need them. They will buy more and better equipment, if it’s needed, etc. If you are having trouble comprehending the efficiency of this, you might be told it is because you don’t have an advanced degree in economics.

I am addressing this editorial to all the hard working American Patriots who are not afraid of doing some honest research and digging to get to the truth. This is not for the couch potatoes who sit and stare at the TV believing every word that the news drills into you. I ask that you read with an open mind and that you challenge my words with honest research of your own. Not with emotional political anger. Just remember that you have been fed what the broadcast higher-ups have been told to tell you and many of the facts have been kept from you. Money buys silence. They also get paid very well for bending toward certain opinions. Stop letting the media mold your decisions. Do your own research if you really want to know the entire truth. You cannot go to the polls to vote as a honest person if you don't know all the facts and you won't get them from the media.

All the writing from Sissy Pattillo about how everything was on the up and up. All the Town Board was doing was trying to look after the well-being of Franklin. Trying to make it the best little town in the whole world is foolishness, and is an insult to the mentality of the citizens for whom Franklin is home.

Without going into too much detail, let us make a short list of efforts and accomplishments that put the entire Town Board in a less than bright light of integrity.
