Questions for Republicans

RECEIVED Tue., Sept. 21, 2010

Dear Editor,
    According to Wikipedia, "Republican" refers to advocates of a republic, a form of government that is not a monarchy or dictatorship.
    Party of no; scientists, such things as global warming, retirement, Social Security, 401(k), minimum wage increase, American dream, I won't pay taxes cause I'm rich, foreigners, public heath care, soup for you.
    This also explains the "axis of evil" consisting of the "republics" of Iraq, Afghanistan, North Korea, and Iran. But after a revisit of Bedtime for Democracy by the Dead Kennedys (inappropriate timing), wrestling for his seat are the Republican tea party, carpet-baggin', Rambozo scalawags. To republicate is to rewrite history with a machine gun? Being Sarah Palin is the spokesperson and wants to repeal the health care legislation, does that mean she plans on being the chairwoman of her "death panels"?
    Why did they take back the retirement packages after 19 years, for plugging in your hybrid? Was it to pay for the war they fabricated? Now the CEO that fired you put your 401(k) in his account. Yes, the same 3% that took your financial savings and then our government stimulus. They don't want to provide loans. They won't want to provide insurance for a dangerous position they put you in, to make them money.
    Dear Abby, do I make sure the body's blessed, mix it with Tuna Helper, and ta-da? Do not save the wealthy with a tax break.
Thank you,
Mike Homa
