I totally agree with Mr. Butcher letter in the NTH about spending this much money on a 25-mile sidewalk through the woods to benefit a few, when that money could be better spent on the things he mentioned.

 
This nation was emulating 1930s Germany under Obama. Obama used the government (IRS) to go after political opponents. Obama took complete control of government for eight years. He used the NSA to spy on everyone including political opponents. He funneled billions in unmarked bills to the world’s No. 1 terror nation, Iran. 
 
As soon as you said that German Chancellor Angela Merkel is a liberal, you were not credible anymore. Man, get your facts straight.
 
When women entered the workforce after WWII, families had more money. When people have more money, the demand for goods and services goes up, and prices go up. Raising the minimum wage will make prices go up.
 
A "Sound Off" writer compared the Republican party to Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party; then warned, "Wake up before we become a communist nation." I thought that was hilarious. The Nazis were fascists, not communists.
 
Under the Republican "plan," tens of millions will lose health coverage and millions may die. A quote from Adolf Eichmann, one of the chief architects of the Holocaust: "A single death is a tragedy; a million deaths is a statistic." 
 
Being born and raised up in the Arnco community I am so happy to have the bridge back open even if it's temporary. I wish it would remain open permanently.
