You’re blaming the wrong people, sir

By November 2, 2010

EDITOR:

I read the letter from Paul Bruzza regarding how we should change the mantra for Lady Liberty to say, “Give me your lazy, your worthless, your yammering masses demanding a free ride …”

I certainly hope he’s not referring to immigrants, because it is immigrants who made this country great. They are the ones who worked hard to make a better life for one another. If you want to refer to lazy and demanding a free ride then look no further than to ourselves.

The immigrants didn’t buy homes they could not afford. The immigrants don’t furnish their homes with no payments for two years. In fact, I don’t think you’ll find six or more credit cards in their wallets.

Yes, Paul , this country has lazy people demanding a free ride, but I believe they are Americans. So if you want to take this country back, be a real American and help your fellow man and don’t blame the wrong people.
