Letters to the Editor

Three answers in one letter

This is an answer to three letters in the Nov. 11 Whidbey News-Times.

1. Those over 65 should be very scared of the House health bill. We will lose Medicare and be placed last in line for care, pay high premiums and taxes, have several billion dollars taken away from senior care and given to illegal care, and abortions, and have end-of-life forced counseling every two years according to the 2,000-page document. Just read it!

2. Those over 65 are last in line for the H1N1 vaccine due to a shortage because the government (read Obama) told the suppliers to provide it in single shots instead of in multidose bottles.

3. The climate has been cooling the last few years and the ice caps have stabilized. The average world temperature has fluctuated over the centuries. The last warm period was during the Middle Ages before use of oil. The polar caps of Mars have shrunk: should Al Gore be sent to tell the Martians? Carbon dioxide is required for plant growth and is exhaled by humans. Perhaps it would be good for all those leftists who push this nonsense to stop breathing thus lowering the levels and ridding us of all of them in one fell swoop!
