Letter: Our God-given intelligence

To the Editor:

Last month, I was asking grown folks where they were on Nov. 22, 1963. One lady replied: “Third-grade classroom, and another teacher came and spoke to our teacher, and it got very quiet. School was dismissed.”

I always continue to ask with regards to the lone gunman claim offered by the Warren Commission and U.S. government. The woman stated, “The government thinks the public is stupid.” 

Why were one ambassador, one information officer and two security personnel – both former Navy SEALs – murdered in Benghazi? Did the security personnel have no weapons in which to defend our embassy? There was a call for backup ... none came.

Jay Carney said it was “... a long time ago.” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said, “ ... what difference does it make ... ?” U.S. government blames a video shown that day or the day before the attack.

“The government thinks the public is stupid.” 

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said with reference to the housing bubble burst that they never thought it would be that bad. The hedge fund speculators that bet the bubble would burst made billions.

“The government thinks the public is stupid.”

In Illinois, the pension issue has been brewing for decades – only recently has Springfield cried an alarm about who is going to pay.

“The government thinks the public is stupid.”

So, when the next election rolls around, let the American public reflect our God-given intelligence. For a change we can believe in – re-elect no one.
