Listen to Big Bird

To the Editor:

I believe you need to add more to your facts on Big Bird. It is not OK to spend money on educational programs for children but it is OK to spend trillions of dollars on a war (the Iraq war) and borrow money from China to pay for it because we need tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires who send their money overseas in order not to pay taxes?

How patriotic is this?

The U.S. Constitution guarantees freedom, but implicit in this freedom is responsibility. Those who hate government would have it replaced by what? Corporations? There is no bill of rights in a corporation.

Mitt Romney scares me, especially when his horse has better health insurance than he wants for Americans. We should listen to Big Bird.
