Free Speech Letters, 8/30/11

In memoriam
The staff of the Dayton City Paper is saddened by the passing of former contributing writer Valerie Burba last week. Burba served on the Dayton City Paper staff as a writer and copy editor from 2003 to 2007. We here at the DCP are deeply saddened by the loss and send our thoughts and condolences to her family and friends.

Correction
Last week’s cover story, “A fall curtain call” by Emma Jarman and Nicole Wroten incorrectly stated the date of the Human Race Theatre’s production of Caroline, or Change as October 3-20. The actual date of the production is November 3-20. The Dayton City Paper regrets this error.

Right on
With you all the way, Dave! If the individual mandate fails U.S. Supreme Court review, doesn’t the rest of Obamacare have to fail as well? Is there a severability clause in the legislation?

Obamacare is a trap
The worst thing about Obamacare is that it’s designed to make it impossible for insurance companies to break even. Obama wants to ram his single payer government monopoly down our throats, so first he has to destroy the existing companies. Remember his administration’s motto: “Never let a good crisis go to waste — use it to force people to accept changes they would never accept if they had a choice.” And, “If no crisis exists, create one!”
Praising Obamacare for any benefits it contains is like an animal praising
a trapper for using good bait.
