JUST GET OFF THE COUCH
I see Robert Samuelson is using his own set of facts in his “Wrong debate” column (Viewpoint page, Feb. 14).
You see, those low-information voters of the middle class lost their homes because they overborrowed.
Bob asked if it was the lenders’ fault for giving lax standard loans because the government made them do it, or if it was just dumb borrowers being dumb.
Well, as the story unfolds, Samuelson finally gets to his point, which is those nasty liberals are being politically incorrect about rich folks.
You see, there is no such thing as inequality. If people would just get off the couch, turn off the tube and get a job, everyone would be rich.

A SOURCE OF INSPIRATION
Whatever your views on the dynamic duo of hemp and hydrogen, Terry Cook (letter Feb. 15) provides information and a plan of action that a great many can use.
Following his model, the next time someone comes to my porch to convert me to their particular stairway to heaven, I shall confront them with a copy of the “Top Cat” plan. If they do not flee in terror, then surely their eyes will glaze over enough for me to make my escape.
Thank you, Mr. Cook, for being an inspiration.

SO, WHICH KIND OF HEMP IS IT?
Mr. Cook (letter, Feb. 15), I have a question. Is the hemp you refer to GMO (genetically modified organism) or non-GMO hemp?

WRITER MISSED HER POINTS
Debbie Amstutz (letter, Feb. 15) should re-read my original letter (Feb. 12). It was responding to two topics.
I’ve known Kurt LaRue (letter, Feb. 11) for 30 years.
Where I shop, groceries aren’t bagged right, so I do it myself.
I have pumped my own gas for over 30 years and see many folks that do all the time. I don’t even know that there is a full-serve station in Findlay. I said nothing about experts.
My comment on “Calamity Days” (Viewpoint page, Jan. 30), had nothing to do with Kurt LaRue.
