To the editor:

In tribute to George Goslinga, in response to his last letter, I also get upset with comments by Democrats supporting abortion. Not true, now, as in my letter a few years ago, if you don't like the law, get it changed. Democrats did not make abortion legal - the Supreme Court did.

It may be legal, but it's still your choice - a moral choice. If you have one just because it's legal, you don't have the morals to prevent it anyway so don't blame the Democrats.

Many readers will miss George's regular letters. I admired the way he always "told it like it is." We called each other several times about our letters. His vast knowledge of politics and history was amazing. He was a very special person and will be missed. He often told me, concerning corrupt politics: "We just have to keep at it; keep writing." Sorry, George, I've been slipping, but Bush is gone so with time and hard work we will get our America back. If you want to know the real history of the Bushites, read Bushwacked by Molly Ivens.

Our Governor Pawlenty was well trained by G.W. - cuts to the poor, don't hurt the rich. He's planning big cuts to child care, health care and LGA to balance the budget, with no increase for the upper income people. These people are barely existing now. No way to make more money. I would like to see the people who call users of these services freeloaders live at this poverty level for six months.

I agree it would hurt to pay more taxes, but where is it supposed to come from? It's harder not to have to pay taxes. Tell your legislators to support no more cuts to the poor.
