Democrats lead to failure

December 29, 2013

To the editor: Throughout the 2012 Republican campaign, there was a lot of talk about job creators, whom Democrats quickly redefined as rich people who don’t pay their fair share....

Would the writer have us believe no Republicans made massive profits off the backs of poor black and Hispanic-Americans?

A Quick History Lesson:

13th Ammendment which abolished slavery: 100% Rebublican support 23% Democrat support

14th Amendment which gave citizenship to freed slaves: 94% Republican support 0% Democrat support

15th Amendment which gave the right to vote to everyone: 100% Republican support 0% Democrat support

OBAMACARE: 0% Republican support 86% Democrat support

Just Sayin'.

More facts: “There is a chorus of naysayers out there in the Republican party. It’s a rich tradition they have. In 1936, when Franklin Roosevelt came up with Social Security, a Republican filibuster stopped FDR from funding the offices and personnel he needed to implement it. In addition to that, Alf Landon, the Republican candidate for president said, ‘My first act of office will be to abolish Social Security.’ ” • Source; GOP Inaccurate support of Social Security. Written by Glenn Kessler, The fact checker. Does this mean each time an Ultra Conservative receives a Social Security check he has a Democrat to thank? Just Sayin:

Mr. Moteman, I have no idea what you are talking about. I don’t know who this core is. I’m a recent retiree from a local industry with 42 years of service. I have two children with college degrees that my wife and I paid for. There are no student loans. We felt this was our obligation to prepare them to contribute to society. We consider ourselves as moderates. Both parties have their share of problems. We think a person should be responsible for their self. We don’t think anyone should go through life with their hand out looking for government support for the rest of their lives. We also think a person should be treated with respect in the work force. We believe one should receive a living wage. Years ago what was done to coal miners and steel workers who attempted to provide a better living for their families was wrong. Under Republican administrations, coal miners had federal troops fire upon them. Andrew Carnegie had Pinkerton detectives with clubs and dogs attack steel worker

Richard 67, I also think you are lying about your (false) identity. Most people choose numbers in a name or password that have meaning. This means that they pick a relevant date (birthday, retirement day, etc...) saying that you worked for 42 years does not really compute, neither does your estimated age with 67. I think you are making stuff up. Actually, I'm certain that you are "Mr.Core," it is just beyond statistical probability that a person with your views conveniently shows up and posts the same way as a man that has been banned half a dozen times right after that man has been banned once more. Nice try trying to cover it up though.

I agree with you rpg. He did a great deal of good when he approached the end of life. He was thinking of his legacy.Does this justify his treatment of his workers? You may not believe this, but he did cause a great deal of grief for those trying to provide a better living for their families.

Mr. Hagrid; In 1892, three years after his writing The Gospel of Wealth, Andrew Carnegie hired Henry C. Frick, general manager of the Homestead plant. Frick was determined to cut wages and break the Amalgamated Association of Iron and Steel Workers, one of the strongest craft unions in the country. Carnegie then departed on his annual and lengthy vacation, traveling to a remote Scottish castle on Loch Rannoch. He would stay there for six years. Behind the scenes, Carnegie supported Frick's plans. In the spring of 1892, Carnegie had Frick produce as much armor plate as possible before the union's contract expired at the end of June. If the union failed to accept Frick's terms, Carnegie instructed him to shut down the plant and wait until the workers buckled. "We... approve of anything you do," Carnegie wrote from England in words he would later come to regret. "We are with you to the end." 3,800 steel workers met and voted overwhelmingly to strike. Frick respond

continued: by building a fence three miles long and 12 feet high around the steelworks plant, adding peepholes for rifles and topping it with barbed wire. Workers named the fence "Fort Frick” Frick turned to the enforcers he had employed previously: the Pinkerton Detective Agency's private army, often used by industrialists of the era. At midnight on July 5, tugboats pulled barges carrying hundreds of Pinkerton detectives armed with Winchester rifles up the Monongahela River to confront the steel workers. No one knows which side shot first, but 14 hours later 3 Pinkertons and 9 steelworkers were dead. Many were wounded. Republican Governor Henry Hoyt ordered state militia into Homestead. Union leaders were arrested and charged with murder. Pinkertons were not charged and permitted to leave. The Carnegie Company successfully swept unions out of Homestead and reduced it to a negligible factor in the steel mills throughout the Pittsburgh area. Carnegie found the upheaval and its a

its aftermath a devastating experience. Carnegie wrote: “This is the trial of my life. Such a foolish step -- contrary to my ideals, repugnant to every feeling of my nature. The pain I suffer increases daily. The Mills are not worth one drop of human blood.” Like it or not, The Homestead strike is part of Carnegie’s Legacy. What part did his Gospel of Wealth play in the Homestead Strike? Maybe free housing to the pinkertons after the massacre.

I see. A man is not allowed to protect his property from thugs who have trespassed and destroyed it.

Folks who don't have property wouldn't understand that. Like grown men who live in mommy's house, for example.

GOP shutdown Lie. Harry Reid denied every GOP bill. He was last to act. communist party's fault.

Can't vote if you're brown. Lie. If you were a legal citizen of the U.S. you could vote.

Iran made a deal. Lie John Kerry made the worst deal in the history of the U.S. dealing with a foreign power. Iran is still making bomb grade uranium.

Black Santa's not real? Lie Megan said Santa was based on a white man, and is correct. There really is no Santa Clause black or white.

Obamacare's winning LIE and not even going to try to list all the reasons that it is a lie. It is in the REAL news every day But what is true bath house barry lied several times.
