Administration’s simple ‘fixes’ to problems really no solutions at all


To the Editor:

According to the interim agreement regarding Iran’s nuclear program that was reached last weekend in Geneva, not one centrifuge will be destroyed. Not one pound of enriched uranium will leave Iran. Not one American unjustly detained in Iran’s notorious prisons will be released.

But Iran will start to receive, in a matter of days, $7 billion in relief from international economics sanctions. Those measures should solve the Iran nuclear problem nicely.

Next, the immigration reform, which is no big deal; simply make them all citizens and sign them up for public assistance and try to get them on “Obamacare.”

Our government has “fixed” so much with so little effort, or thought, it makes you wonder why it wasn’t done before.

We fixed the auto industry by buying it with private funds stolen from the American taxpayers.

We ruined an American enterprise: used car industry, by paying cash for clunkers with stolen funds, and we subsidized crooked and phony green industry programs with ... wait for it: funds stolen from taxpayers.

It can only get better or worse depending on which way you lean, so this opinion is neither negative or positive, nor is it about one person or political party.

However, it is an observation of documented facts recently complicated by the Senate decision to remove the filibuster option as a protest to actions by the majority. 

The Democrats when in the minority, made powerful arguments against such actions let by: wait for it ... Sens. Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

Logical thinking voters still have some say in whether they support such buffoonery, and when the mid-terms come, should throw the bums out.

American values, religion, family, self reliance, honest work, and pride in our country have been trampled on, but like the legendary Phoenix, will rise again.
