Health care...


Fri, Mar 7th, 2014
Posted in Spring Valley Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

I read Mrs. Nyenhuis’ letter about health care and some red flags were very apparent to me. I found it hypocritical of her to talk about how well her knee is doing and how lucky she is to have her husband after his diabetic trauma and then go trash the very system that has them so healthy. I’m glad your mom never gave you aspirin for a fever; it wouldn’t help a fever anyway. Evil profits help fund the very research and development you said yourself was so needed now.

Pharmaceutical companies have huge payrolls and getting a new drug approved costs millions if not billions, evil profits are needed to finance development of the pain meds and anticoagulants you are probably took when your knee was replaced. Cherry picking examples of someone who cured themselves with diet and then using them as broad recommendations is not something you should be doing, you could convince someone into an early grave if you don’t know the big picture. The president had to lie to get the ACA passed (if you like your plan you can keep your plan).

The rollout was botched in every conceivable way and they don’t care. Why would anyone trust these arrogant community organizers with a single payer plan?

Posted in Spring Valley Letter to the Editor

To the Editor, Spring Valley was flooded again this week. Has the City ever considered a dike? A dike does not have to be a big, ugly earthen wall. Have you seen the nice row of locally quarried retaining wall rock stacked up at O’Connell’ .....

To the Editor, Your article is right on Jeff; too bad that Yvonne didn’t do a little history reading before she wrote. Her opinions on history and gun control are not factual. Yes, Hitler & Stalin were dictators but what made them Dictators? .....
