Washington lawmakers are destroying this nation PDF Print E-mail

Letter to the Editor:

An open letter to my fellow Americans:

Over the past few years, it has become apparent that hypocrisy has overcome decency and common sense in Washington, D.C. The administration, as well as most legislators, have adopted this sorry trait in lieu of truth and civility when it comes to serving the country and her citizens.

Now that the president has announced his agenda for this legislative session, we can expect to witness the worst possible hypocritical rhetoric imaginable. Our “poor defenseless children” will be used over and over by the liberal progressives to prove how heartless the conservatives are during the upcoming gun debate.

My question to the anti-gunners: Is a child murdered during a late-term abortion by the doctor inserting an instrument in the back of the baby’s head any less dead than one shot — a few years older — by a wacko with a gun? You would think so when you hear the rhetoric being repeated by the liberals, one after the other, and by their fabricated statements.

You may have noted the emphasis placed on children by these so-called concerned child protectors. But I ask you to consider the arguments presented by some liberals when the abortion issues are debated. Suddenly, the children have lost their standing. They find that now they are considered somewhat less important as the concern has turned to the mother.

Could it be that the voting age might have come into play? After all, it will be years before the child will be beneficial to their cause.

These are the folks you see packing their Bibles and pocket booklets of the U.S. Constitution around about D.C. I wonder if they ever take time to read either. God, nor the terms of the Constitution, ever find a place in their regard for one another or the American citizen.

I want to mention one more example regarding our youth. If our legislators are truly concerned about their future well-being, how can they continuously pile greater debt upon their shoulders?

Frankly, I?don’t think they care about our posterity, they care only about their self and their future retirement and legacy. In some cases, the party is most important.

Our active duty military and veterans of all wars have done more for America and our allies than the elected officials of the government could or will ever do for us. They are on duty 24 hours, seven days a week. Compare that to a meager three and one-half to four days our highly paid legislators serve per week.

Continue to destroy our military, then look around to see when it will be there to save and protect you, you ungrateful hypocrites. Yes, I am a veteran and proud of it!

In closing, I want to say if I?had the financial resources, I would seriously consider bringing charges of malfeasance in office or dereliction of duty against all of the present and some past officials for failing to protect America and her legal citizens. You folks have nearly destroyed the greatest nation ever brought into being and I do not appreciate it one damn bit.

You so-called servants had best get off your self-elevated throne and start representing your constituents, the taxpaying,?hard-working folks who are keeping this society afloat. Start by honoring God and country before self.

Again, I?ask God to bless this great nation he has blessed us with and all her conscientious citizens as well.

You are something else.

First you conjure up some convoluted rationalization that Mr. Hyslop is hating on all Americans.

When challenged by me, for once again having Mr.Hyslop's back, you disparage an 88 year-old hero of two wars by stating that I'm "babysitting a bronze star soldier," knowing full well that Mr. Hyslop never once has chimed-in to this forum even after the defamation orchestrated by John against him.

Yet, for some reason my defense of Mr. Hyslop somehow rises to a level of "ranting" in which you believe I've berated you??

Start squaring and while you're at it please explain your "babysitting" comment of Mr. Hyslop.

Frank, I have changed my buy the lunch and at my restaurant of choice. If I must endure your constant rant let me eat while you berate me. You get to leave the tip also. Next week you can jump all over the usual "liberal" suspects! They are resting in comfort as we burn up computer time.
Tony Corallo
p.s. invite Harvey Hyslop to join us.

Yep, that's going to get you a whole lot of friends by suggesting my support for a war hero is akin to "baby sitting."

The fact is if want to meet with Mr. Hyslop, call him at home. He has a listed number.

Mr. Hyslop does not own a computer.

But of course, that never was your intention in the first place - it's just worn out shtick.

Hello Frank, It seems to me that if you are baby sitting a bronze star soldier perhaps Harvey would like to make up his own mind.
But then you think everyone must agree with you, even feisty Harvey Hyslop! Perhaps you don't know Mrs Hyslop bakes a very tasty apple pie that both Harvey and I would enjoy at Joice's restaurant! Frank, you can change your mind, after all "this is America" and even you can take a liberal position! Tony

Mr. Corallo,

Considering that Mr. Hyslop won a Bronze Star for bravery in the very first battle of the Korean War, in which he was one of only a handful of patriots to escape with his life, Mr. Hyslop, even at 88, needs no help from me.

And since Mr. Hyslop has never owned a computer, it looks as though you'll be eating alone, once again.

Harvey, From your letter to the editor "you have found the enemy, and it is us!" Next time I return to Eagle River from Milwaukee perhaps you and Mr Gabl will join me for lunch to discuss your many complaints. I will buy the lunch which will include your choice of desert at your restaurant of choice.
Surely the "two against one" are good odds that will provide the security you require against everyone! Tony Corallo

Thank You Harvey for your great letter. We need many more like you!

Spoken as if the $3.6 billion budget shortfall -- left over by Doyle for Walker to deal with when he took office -- has nothing whatsoever to do with the situation.

Sure past Gov's restructured debt, but not to the percentage Walker has. Once again, past Gov's kept it at 4%, Walker is at 5.26% and 4.88%. Borrowing more for future larger deficits.

If Mr. Hyslop had a computer I have no doubt he would say something similar to the response that immediately follows:

John, why are you not telling the folks the entire story?

You just stated to me: “Considering Mr. Walker has borrowed more money than any past WI Gov do you still hold that same response towards him? Per the Right leaning WI Taxpayers Alliance the 2013-2015 budget, debt service will climb higher to 5.26% in 2014 and 4.88% in 2015. In the past the historical rate has been targeted at 4%.”

Why so partisan, John? - when according to the Left-leaning PolitiFact Wisconsin:

“The 5.26 percent translates into $738 million in general fund tax dollars that are being used in the 2013-’14 budget period (4.88 for 2015) on debt payments. Walker spokesman Tom Evenson didn’t dispute the figure, but pointed out that Vinehout voted for debt restructuring under Doyle.”
