Last week’s Town-Crier illustrates, in letters to the editor, that there are still people out there who think so little of public intellect that they continue to try to pass “horse manure” for horse sense. [Frank Morelli’s letter] “Stop Obama Now” is admittedly a biased letter which seeks your support of global warming and its disastrous effects through the continued use of fossil fuels and dirty energy producers. The only reason for such support is obvious, and that is to increase the value of someone’s investment portfolio, and it mythologically asserts that such support will lead us to energy independence.
What such support really does is lead us, according to the best scientists in the world, to disastrous climatic changes and weather-related catastrophes linked to the continued use of fossil fuels that threaten our food and fresh water supply. Of course, while it is obvious which candidate Mr. Morelli prefers, it is difficult for readers to understand his position with respect to his choice.
Does he prefer Mitt Romney’s support of “Romneycare” before he was against “Obamacare?” Does he support equal pay for women before he became evasive on the issue? Does he favor writing off 47 percent of Americans who receive entitlements “who just won’t take responsibility for their lives” — people like Social Security recipients, Medicare beneficiaries, widows and orphans and veteran benefit programs? Does he favor Mr. Romney’s proposed tax changes in the tax code which would disproportionately benefit the wealthy 3 percent, while increasing the tax obligation of the middle class?
Tell us, Mr. Morelli, which Mitt Romney are you voting for?
