It is bothersome that young people would read letters like that sent by the recent writer who in his first paragraph suggested we should stop spending and raise taxes, and be convinced when they vote that he was right.

He cites a huge increase in the flow of wealth as the result of the tax cuts in the Bush years, without suggesting what or how the nation should have responded to the terrorist attacks that brought about the spending.

The attack on corporations for what they do is typical of the takers who feed at the public trough. Any businessman understands that to strive to increase profits and satisfy their investors is as natural as breathing air. No discussion about what unions, who never stop demanding more, have done to push companies offshore.

The voters he appeals to elected a load of takers to punish the president for starting the war. Once in power, as ever one knows, they insisted on pressuring lenders to create uncollectable debt and succeeded in bringing the economy down. Now, in desperation, they are appealing to the makers, particularly small businesses, to create ideas and start businesses, so they can hire people and become rich, so they can tax them to death.
