Carrollton Free Press Standard Letters to the Editor | Mary Ann Marshall

In response to numerous requests to "please keep writing", ask yourself the following: 1. How can the President and Congress allow debilitating cuts to our military to the point that some of our soldiers in Afghanistan have been informed they will no longer be given a warm breakfast? MRE's will be provided if available. Full Story

OMG. Would you two stop listening to Rush, FOX News, out of wack Tea Party members, or whatever you do to obtain "off the charts" ideas. You are being indoctrinated to believe this stuff is really true. The truth is that any military cuts probably will occur because Republicans will not budge on raising revenue by taxing the super rich. They can afford to give. Why are you supporting the super rich? Are you hitting a high tax bracket and don't want to pay more taxes? The super rich do not need to be so greedy. And don't bark at me because I pay more than my share but that's fine because I live well and wish that others can do so too.

OMG would you stop listening to MSMBC and all the other Obama loving networks with their bias. The only greedy ones are our government spending us into oblivia. Where's the money coming from Ken? More from the Chinese, printing more, taxing more, well Ken? The rich pay 40% of their income to Federal a tax Ken, what do you pay? If you took the entire wealth of the rich, Ken, it might run the government 4 months. So you want to punish achievers? You make too much so we will take it. How much is too much? In my book that is called theft. Taking their money to go to the non-productive to sit on their butts and ask for more. That's called socialism. Is that who you are Ken, a socialist? The problem with socialism is that you run out of other peoples money. We are on our way there now Ken. Is that what you want? Get a brain and wake up.

OMG. It's CNN. If you're so worried about theft, then why is your hand in the cookie jar so far. Military pension and benefits, school income and benefits and who knows what else. Your livelihood depends on us, the taxpayer. How is socialism working for you? Typical Republican--it's good for me but not for everyone else. Why are you so paranoid about what others receive from the government? There are many more hardworking Americans than free loaders. The rich are not paying 40%; GE paid nothing in taxes last year. Of course, according to your screwed up economics, that's fine.

When you can't win an argument you turn to personnal attacts, just like a liberal. You know as well as I do you're comparing apples and oranges. The rich don't pay 40%? What happened last January with their individual income taxes, they went up. GE is a corporation, not an individual. So it's apples and oranges again. Did you get that from info CNN? I'm not paranoit what others receive just that what did they do for it. NOTHING. They are being paid not to work and they are scamming the system. Granted some are truley in need and I'm not talking about them but the others who bragg about how they are getting over on the government frosts me. Remember, we are the ones getting screwed. With 16.6 Trillion dollars on the hole and climbing. We can't afford it KEN. Get your head out of the sand the country is in decline and before long we won't have a country. Tell me Ken when will this stop? Or do you think, like most low information people, say we don't care, as long as it keeps coming, government handouts, it will last forever. Hello, can you say bankrupt or can't you think that far ahead.

Oh are you saying Ken, if you work for the government and provide them a service, Army or School, you don't deserve a retirement? The key word is WORK. Tell that to any union.

Mrgoodcitizen, you are wrong again, it happened in the late 60's and early 70's pushed by the ACLU.
