Unions, technology send wrong message

To the editor:

Please tell us how to give you money we do not have. By union's behavior you are teaching students that it is all right to be disruptive, but if a student is disruptive, that one is either counseled or disciplined. But you want respect.

May I list some of the damage the unions have done: John L. Lewis is the one where I first learned about unions.

Unions broke the mines, steel mills, railroads, the auto industry, the air travel, buses, the telephones, and always stable Western Union Telegraph Company, without which we would not have won WWII. Now they increase the price of food, gasoline, utilities, etc.

I suggest most of Americans do not need all the tech things, so why not teach the students things they can do to help themselves until they can do for themselves? Elementary students need the three R's before they are taught to use the tech things.

Our reporters constantly irritate me with their lack of grammar. I think they could learn to use (their and there) in right places, also (where to say you and me or you and I).

How did someone I know get a master's degree and cannot yet subtract? Teachers, can you recite from memory the multiplication tables? And why do elementary students already know to use credit cards, these cards are for people who can afford them. Not to be used as a gift to getting anything at all without paying.

A good rule — If you can't pay for it; don't bring it home.

Next time I wish for a change I will send along another lesson.

The truth about Rockefellers is out

To the editor:

The Rockefellers have for years been accused of being part of a secret conspiracy bent on overthrowing all the countries of the world, especially America, to establish a one-world government.

On page 405 of his book "David Rockefeller, Memoirs" he finally responded to these charges: "I stand guilty and am proud of it."

In fact, in a 1991 speech in Baden Baden, Germany, thanking the mainstream media for their discretionary cooperation, he further confessed: "It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the bright lights of publicity over the years. But the world is now prepared to march towards a world government."

But don't take my word for it. Read "Operation Vampire Killer 2000" free online at for more shocking details, as well as Rockefeller's memoirs.
