Letters to the Editor Dec. 30, 2010

It should be my right not to have insurance and pay out of pocket

In response to Ms. Felt’s letter published Dec. 22 (“Ruling on health reform appears politically motivated, nonsensical”), she is comparing apples and oranges.

A driver’s license is only required if you choose to drive. One is only required to purchase auto insurance if they want to own and operate an automobile on public streets. She is correct about taxes and social security. Most taxes can be considered unconstitutional, and requiring one to pay for another’s retirement could be so as well.

Postal Service courteous, helpful, and outstanding public servants

My wife and I are a retired couple, ages 95 and 87. We require frequent mail service, both P.O. Box and rural delivery. Postmaster Mr. Miller and his crew are outstanding public servants. They have been both courteous and helpful in delivering our mail, especially when our mail box has been damaged beyond repair. (Careless drivers.)

The residents of Smith River fully appreciate their outstanding service.

Mr. and Mrs. Harley Askew

Thanks to Safeway employee who helped during emergency

You could not ask for a nicer bunch of store employees than we have at Safeway. And one in particular sticks in my mind: Ms. Janet Moore.

On Dec. 7 I was waiting for my husband when my blood sugar dropped to a dangerous level. She knew what to do and when most people would have panicked she was able to stay pretty calm. When I regained my composure I did not have the strength to go back in to thank her.

So consider yourself properly thanked, Janet Moore. You have helped me a great deal.

Children of illegal immigrants didn’t break law, their parents did

I would like to respond to the Dec. 21 Coastal Voices article, “Another View of Dream Act.”

The proposed Dream Act provides a six-year path to citizenship for illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children under age 16. They must have graduated from a U.S. high school, obtained a GED or be enrolled in college.

It is estimated that about 65,000 of these people graduate from U.S. high schools each year. We are not talking about granting citizenship to millions of illegal aliens.

Nine questions about WikiLeaks and America’s imperialistic wars

This is a copy of a letter sent to U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson:

“We have re-elected you regardless of misgivings over your waffling on the TARP vote. Now, do your job. On the House floor today, Rep. Paul from Texas posed nine questions to we, the American people and you, our elected representatives.

“You are both a veteran and an American, we expect you to do your job. No smokescreens and finger-pointing at the messengers of the WikiLeaks data. Do your job and demand truthful accountability for the lies and duplicity overwhelming our nation. The cost of the wars in American lives and debt passed to our children must be ended.”

DREAM Act should be nothing more than that — a dream

This is in response to the Dec. 14 letter (“Why should illegal immigrants start to get preferential treatment?”).

The so called “DREAM Act” should be considered nothing more than just that, a dream. An unattainable dream for all those who choose to enter our country illegally. And our borders are far from secure as long as it’s allowed to continue.

There’s more than just the law of the land as stated by the writer that’s majorly affected by illegals being here.
