Letters: Lazy leftists

Our readers tell us what they think

Lazy leftists

Before addressing your Newtown diatribe [“Editorial,” Jan. 23], let me say I support voter suppression—the fraudulent kind. Many people who live in New York and have vacation properties in Florida have been caught voting in Florida and/or both states. There are many other examples. Also the good leftists seem to miss the deadlines for sending ballots to overseas military. Somehow, I think if the military would toe the Marxist line, they would get their ballots! Voter suppression by the left against the military is the worst example I know of.

Newtown: I guess I should expect simply a regurgitation of the leftist talking points from CityBeat, and you never disappoint! Jumping on the bandwagon, you overlook the obvious, that Adam Lanza could have easily cornered and killed the same amount of people (small children) with the two handguns he had. He had 20-some minutes, reloading once or twice; nothing would have changed. Your leftist consensus laws would not have changed anything in Newtown. Typical of the left, the laws are to make you feel good not to solve anything. Do you think a man with a machete could have also done it? I do.

Why don’t we follow what Obama and the leftist elite like David Gregory do, instead of what they say. There are 11 armed guards at the private school their children attend. Of course, this is not in the leftist talking points. These guards are separate and unrelated to the Secret Service detail for the Obama girls. Recently in Ohio, a school district had janitors volunteer to carry weapons to protect their schools. If the public knows there are armed people at schools, they would no longer be seen as soft targets.

What’s at fault? I would contend it’s very dangerous that so many people are buying into your lazy leftism = the answer for everything is government and relieving everyone of personal responsibility.

Lanza’s mother and others close to him should have prevented access to arms. It takes an individual. Unless we have government monitors conducting surprise inspections of every home? Maybe you would like that?

Maybe I am on to something: Fort Hood: Registered Democrat and radical Muslim who supported Al Qaeda and Hamas. Columbine: Too young to vote; both families were registered Democrats and progressive liberals. Virginia Tech: Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff; registered Democrat. Colorado theater: Registered Democrat; staff worker on the Obama campaign; Occupy Wall Street participant; progressive liberal. Connecticut school shooter: Registered Democrat; hated Christians.

Outlaw Democrats and/or progressives from having guns!

If it ain’t broke...

I agree with your Feb. 6 editorial about the Jacobs plan to change Balboa Park. While he is upset about cars in the center of the park, there is no concern about the traffic and parking in the southern part of the park next to the Hall of Champions, the municipal gym, the Aerospace Museum and several other public buildings.

The Plaza de Panama situation is no more objectionable than the existing traffic and parking in other parts of the park and can be cured by “No Parking” signs.

While I agree with your editorial, I note that neither you nor the other media mentions that the Jacobs plan would destroy the existing free parking in back of the Organ Pavilion.

This whole episode can be summed up by the adage “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

Mel Shapiro, Hillcrest
